Good luck with the pot roast and thanks for the link to the story - I missed that one, and that is NOT one to miss!

PS - "growing up in the rural East Tennessee and surrounded by 15 to 20 male cousins all roughly my age" - that sounds like it would've been *lots* of fun to me. ;)

Wish I still had my Walmart purchased Marlin .22. With a CCI Stinger long rifle round in it, it was hella hard to beat.

Eric,
I think that every bit of trouble that I got into as a child was a cousin's idea. Guess I was a follower. Still, it was fun.

Tobacco barn? Does that mean that you grow your own??

I always found it strange that everybody and their dog grew their own pot but nobody I've ever known of around here grows their own tobacco. There is one spot I know of that grows it (Kentville, NS) but it's an official farm.

Guess that has to be because if you grow your own tobacco the gov't will stomp your ass into submission for cutting off their revenue but they _don't_ lose any cash on pot production and actually get a few bucks in revenue in fines. Do I sound reasonably cynical or is there a better reason why nobody grows their own smokes?

.. rock on, Bitterman... I still have my Mossberg bolt-action that I used back then....

... Jean?... hey, it's hard work, but I do my best.....

.. and yeah, Jerry.... it's ok to follow sometimes... (and I always blamed my elders anyway..)....

... damn right, G... the gummit has tobacco locked down everywhere.... and yes, we grew it.... but at the law's discretion.....

Ok, I'm thinking that pot roast sounds kinda good right about now-- but me cookin' one, that's a completely different story!

Rural East Tennessee-- hell, truth be told, I probably know you! ;0)
