A Do-Nothing Day

Yesterday was pretty much a do-nothing day for me. I don’t know if I was still feeling the effects of my medical marijuana overdose, or if I was just lazy (which could very well be the case), but whatever the reason, I just didn’t have any energy or any interest in doing anything.

I did leave the house long enough to go to the chiropractor to get an adjustment after throwing my back out again during that incident. On the way there, I stopped at the medical marijuana dispensary and to tell them what had happened to me, as I described in yesterday’s blog. The young girl behind the counter was pretty sure I was lying and told me that was impossible. She said the only thing that taking too much would do would have been to make me sleep for 24 hours. I won’t be going back there, I’ll patronize a couple of other dispensaries in the area even though they are farther away.

When I got back home I answered a few emails, then parked myself in my recliner and vegged out the rest of the day. At some point I fell asleep, and when I woke up the evening news was on. Like I said, I do-nothing day.

Miss Terry, on the other hand, never stops moving. While I was being a couch potato (or is that recliner potato?), she was busy catching up on paperwork, doing some laundry, and making me some more of the fudge with the right medical marijuana ingredients in it. No more of the capsules for me!

It looks like we finally have a cooling trend coming our way this weekend, with temperatures dropping down into the lower 80s for the next week at least. It’s almost time to get the kayaks and the pontoon boat back on the water, and I’m really looking forward to that.

But until then, I plan to start on my next book today, the long-awaited Big Lake Wedding. It will be the event of the year in Big Lake, and I have it on good authority that it won’t happen without some surprises and difficulty for Sheriff Weber and Robyn.

Meanwhile, my latest John Lee Quarrels book, Strawberry Slugbug, is selling well on Amazon and gathering some very nice five-star reviews. Like any author, I always appreciate reviews. They really help shoppers decide on which books they want to read.

Be sure to enter our latest Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of Hands of Onyx, book 2 in the Sav’ine series by Stacy Bender. It’s a story about cybernetic soldiers escorting a long haul space freighter to the outer rim planets, dealing with saboteurs who are trying to stop them and a crew that includes a half-blind medic, an explosives expert who is a sociopath, and an interrogator suffering from dementia. What could possibly go wrong? To enter, all you have to do is click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening.

And finally, here’s another chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us. I don’t know what part of the country they are growing these in, but if I find out, I plan to buy a few acres.

Thought For The Day – I don’t have anything in common with people who are not at least a little bit crazy.

  1. Your recent overdose “trip” on the medicinal marijuana was certainly scary. I’ m glad you went back to the dispensary. Too bad the gal was so wrong in her reaction. It is worth taking your experience to the “managers” or local regulatory agency. If the products are on “display” are they labeled with their THC potency? Time for a return trip with a camera to document what they told/sold you.
    Hope your CBD oil and chiropractor get you moving again. At least you can sit in your recliner and start typing on a laptop to get the BIG LAKE WEDDING started!
    ((( Gentle HUGS)))

  2. That bud tender sounds very inexperienced and naive. Not to excuse her stupidity, but I’m willing to bet whoever actually owns that store is more knowledgeable, if you can manage to talk to them.
    Weedmaps.com usually has a review function, you might think about leaving them a review.
