Some of James' recent 'artwork'. He told us that the first one below was a dinosaur and that the second one was a baby. Poor baby, just through the birthcanal with some kind of cone head, I think. Or an alien baby. Pretty good for a almost 2 1/2 year old!

Now this next pic needs more explanation. For a little while yesterday, I really though somebody naughty had planted mari*juana in our container garden. We have no private area outside of our apartment, but we garden in several rubbermaid containers. I was spraying the tomato plants yesteday afternoon when I pushed some branches out of the way and found this sucker:

I saw it, counted the leaves, and really thought that one of the drug smoking college students was trying to grow some of his own in our dirt. I called Ben out, we took a pic and then went inside to check out google images. I'm pretty sure that it's not 'pot', but for a while there, I didn't know whether to pull it out or call campus police and ask them if they wanted it. But could you imagine that conversation?

Me: Hi, Campus police, we have some mari*juana growing here at our apartment and thought you might like to have it.

Campus Police: Uh, what?

Me: We're growing tomatoes and squash and there's some pot in there, too. Would you like it? Do you want to come see it? What should we do with it?

Campus Police: You're growing pot on campus? blah blah blah blah blah..... Then we'd probably get arrested once they saw the mari*juana and the massive bottle of drugs the dr prescribed me last year. (Except the bottle fell in the toilet and I put all the pills in a plastic baggy.) Narcotics in a baggy in the bathroom, and weed in our garden. This is looking better and better.

I have no clue what the plant is, but it does look like what I *think* pot looks like. But the whole narcotics in the baggie and pot on the porch scenario! LOL!!!! You may want to start flushing things down the toilet (you know, as opposed to just dropping them in it). LOL!

Maybe you better make yourself a "medicinal" roll just to check things out before you call the fuzz... :)

Holy cow You could have fooled me!! When you find out what it really is let me know, Hey let Ben try smoking it and if he gets funny you'll know :0

That's a really funny post. I especially like how you obviously were playing the scenarios over in your head. I remember at the Amsterdam airport when we went they had a plant growing that looked like "pot". Megan and I picked a leaf and I think the only place we had to put it was in her scriptures. Hmmm....I wonder if she stills has them? Btw, Megan (Mimi) just had her first baby in July. (Maybe you already know that) So did you weed the "weed" and get rid of it?
