Been out at the ranch harvesting CBG plants, thousand of em. Off the beaten path at my son-in-law’s ranch. Did I mention way out of the main path?
Anyway, Thursday I was working, and a car pulls up. A man and a lady exit, and summons my SIL over, he and his brother walk over, I’m not really paying attention, pretty soon I hear the lady screaming at the top of her lungs, the mans taking a combative stance.
This is getting good, so I walk over to observe, as I do, I see Biden stickers all over the back of this car. This is going to be fun, AND the big backhoes already idling twenty feet away. This chicks screaming at the top of her lungs, her ” man’s threatening to come over the fence and fuck us all up.
We are all three laughing, and she’s getting madder and madder, going to call the cops and all that palaver. I still don’t have a clue what’s going on. We turn and simply walk away.
The manly man says that’s it, nobody walks away from us, nobody runs to the car, and is digging in the back seat. I’m thinking o shit, the brothers turn and ask me if I’m armed, of course, I am. I start towards the fence, 50 y is a long shot for a 9mm.
I close to 20 y. To my relief, this retard pulls out a Biden sign and drives it in the soft soil in front of the hemp field. And the chick goes ape shit again. The man pounds the sign in the road right of way, not on private property, nothing we can do, or would do.
The ladies now screaming we’ll be back, you rich farmers don’t own the world, we’re going to steal your marijuana? We were laughing again, went back to work. As we walked away I asked what that was all about.
The brothers tell, me these two thought this was a Cannabis farm., wanted the brothers to donate a pound to local BLM, Antifa. When the brothers said fuck you, and this isn’t dope, it’s medicine. The lady went crazy.
When we walked away, didn’t give her any attention she literally went nuts. The younger brother did call the sheriff’s office, and a unit arrived. ” both still there, in their vehicle” Bob, the Deputy had stopped down the road and watched this lady still screaming.
Bob, contacted em, asked for ID, seems the vehicle was out of registration by a few years, and both were suspended ” felony suspended. And zero insurance.
Now the ladies screaming that the brothers set her up, invited her out here with the offer of free marijuana. Bob, listens with a huge smile on his face. Explains that the brothers are licensed CBG growers, it’s not dope.
When she changes her story a bit, he hooks her up for false reporting to a PO. Before you go nuts, I’ve known Bob worked with Bob for 20 years, he is honest to a fault and fair as the day is long. A dam good man, a man of the people.
OSP arrives and has the vehicle towed, city and county can no longer tow vehicles, “in my mind a good thing”, they mostly agree. Certainly made my day, I’m still smiling.
The guy with the girl was last seen walking towards town, 20 miles, a long walk.
Well, the rest of the story is I was driving home, and I see the guy walking down the OC&E hiking trail, about to cross highway140. So I stopped and gave him a ride. He accepted. As we drove he looked at me, asking where he knew me from, I looked very familiar.
I was amused. He told me the story, and I smiled again. As I dropped him off, I told him, it really is CBG, not dope. He walked back to the truck and said, I knew it, I knew I recognized you. Dude was still, hanging onto the door when he asked why did I give him a ride after what his girlfriend did what she did.
My response was simple. Partner, it was the right thing to do. We as people need to help each other when we can, that our politics are different, is no reason to NOT do the right thing, that Life IS the lesson.
The young man smiled and said we won’t bother you again, I promise.
There’s a lesson here, I’m still trying to find the good in it all.
