I had pleaded (actually I just asked him) for some S. Alabamesis Alabamesis x self seeds he had had in a giveaway...hoping he had a pinch maybe left hanging around he could send me. Ya know, moochers like me gotta mooch!
Anyhow, after he stopped a stampeding stage coach and saved two young (pretty) school teachers, three orphans, and a mangy coach driver from certain death, and was injured when he was thrown from his mighty steed in the process he managed to drag himself over to his seed stash with his one good arm and his slightly broken leg. He dutifully did what all masked heroes do and sent some to me via secured, armed carrier (I think the lady on the mule still has arms). What the sneaky rascal didn't tell me was he had slipped an extra treasure in the envelope. No, not a bomb and no spiders...but, it is a killer!!!
I retrieved the mail earlier today and found a strange package in the tin box the lady on the mule throws my mail in. I scratched my head a minute and listened from a distance for any ticking sounds. Questioning my hearing I *almost* called the sheriff department, but being Saturday I figured them and the lady that rides the mule and delivers the mail (and the mule) were probably drunk watching the Beavers get beat.<sigh> *Then*...I saw it was from Panman.
I though to myself, "Myself, those sarrs seeds ain't that big!!!" (See, I do know that sarrs seeds don't need a container a couple of inches thick and say....six inches long!!! I'm larnin'!!!!) Anyhow, I scampered inside, ran around in circles like a dog gettin' ready to take a nap, and finally grabbed the package and went outside to open it (just in case it did explode...???). What do I see when I delicately and carefully ripped into the package like a raccoon into your best layin' hen?.....a plant label!!!!! Yesirree....a plant label!!!!! Now folks that know me know that I've been on a journey to find certain seeds, or actual specimens of a...certain plant!!! Now, what behooved Panman to do this I don't know...maybe he was tired of all my rachet-jawing folks trying to find some of these...maybe he was just bein' nice...I tend to think the latter 'cause this ain't the first time he's done something really nice.
And one more thing...he sent the sarrs seeds, too!!!! Did I mention he also got an arrow in his shoulder while saving those teachers and orphans on the run away stagecoach?
So, if you're gonna get, give, trade, buy, sell, blend, swap, share, or otherwise have a transaction with Panman...be aware that you're most likely to get more than you bargain for...in a good way!!!
THANKS PANMAN!!!! YOU'RE ONE GOOD DUDE!!!
