So, in a way, it's too late!

However, I am sure that you are as I am, meaning we never want a harem in the 1st place. Forget about the financial hardship, having just one missus occasionally seems tough enough, let alone a few more. It might just take away one's will to live.

Dunno, I hear some of the menfolk that follow the original version of a certain religion that seemed to promote such things live a long, long time....

Funny, it occurred to me the other day that I have never been to Oklahoma either. That and maybe 3 other states. Something to shoot for!

Pot etc.

About drugs... permit some ancient history... triggered more often these days.
In 1957, I was a senior incollege. My fraternity pledged a young man from Brazil, whose dad owned one of those immense cattle farms and was obviously very wealthy... His name was as long as he was short, and we used to make him say it as part of hazing... Bernardo Yuan Ramon Ortiz de Montellano Lamb Quinto. At 18 years old he had a century of experiences all over the world... most recently running with Dr. Timothy Leary, trying mushrooms, in Mexico, and previously spending a year traveling part time with Jack Kerouac.
He regaled us with stories of poetry around campfires and taking the high road.
In our school at the time... no use of pot at all... Sophisticated as we were, drugs were a mystery. Booze, a different story.

More recently... around 1971, DW and I along with 2 of our kids went to a performance at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center to see the Carpenters. The entrance way was a mass of thousands of people to go through four ticket booths...($2.75 tickets as I recall)... We were jammed, belly to bum in the teeming crowd... mostly teens.

DW began with... in a small voice... "Do you smell something?"... "No"... "I smell something"... "No"..." I tell you I smell something"... "No"... (Louder now) "I do smell something... it's smoke"... (I had figured it out)... "Shhh, its nothing"... (now the panic starts)... "Something's BURNING!".... "Shhh"... "It's okay, nothing's burning"... "Something's BURNING... It's a FIRE!!!"... "No, it's okay"... (next in a terrified loud, loud voice) "It's a FIRE!... FIRE!...FIRE"...
The crowd moves away leaving us in a little open circle... moi, DW and two kids... Hysterical laughter all around us... Our first, first hand experience with the banned substance... It was our last experience with pot... second hand, at that.

On the other hand, I am quite passionate about mushrooms.

I never brewed beer. Brewing it is in my bucket list.

I have never been deep sea fishing. I did try one time but never threw a line in the water as I was completely sea sick. There was others on the boat so we stayed out for the duration (11 hours). Upon the captains orders I kept leaning over the side and looking at the horizon. After 11 hours of sea spray hitting me in the face and then drying in the 80 degree sun I looked like a mime.

Let's just say that I am very leery to try it again.

Seen attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
Watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
