    I found out that one of the older orchid growers was going out of business and called them and got the list last week and decided I needed 3 Orchids to fill a little spot, I fouhd the ones I liked called and ordered them.

    Then the sickness set in I kept going back to the list forgetting I had already ordered 3 I lost track My god 1/2off found another huge Cat for $50.00 but it was half off only 25.00 I was trembling, it was the ultimate bbbbaaaaaddddd I went back to the list all weekend finding new and exciting plants.

    My order arrived today and it's not 3 more , it's like 10 do you know how hard it is to hide 10 big big cats and cym's. I had to act confused and in distress and upset that the order was so big and I sure made a mistake.

    But you know it works every time, everybody suddenly decided to go to a new movie and let dad work through this difficult time, Where is that list

    Bob's just confessing here because he knows we understand. He wouldn't dare tell this to 'normal' people they would think he is nuts.;)

    I like it when their eyes glaze over when I start talking about the orchids.

    You would think by now they wouldn't f'n ask.

    10 new plants, Bob?

    Cool.

    I am wondering how he managed to stop after just 10. After all they are 50% off and since this is a going out of business sale once they are gone they are gone.

    Time to take out that second mortgage.

    I know. I hope he's not too late; maybe he can redeem himself and buy a few more before they're all gone. Forever.
    The end.

    Wow. Hurry!

    :clap::clap::clap:

    Been there,, lol.

    I went to one show with $100 in cash to purchase orchids with. Once that was gone then I was done. That was the plan...The hundred dollars did not last long enough....I spread the rest out between 2 charge cards and a stop or 2 at an ATM. I figured if my wife saw one of the bills I was still safe. Do you now how difficult it is to assimilate 30 plants without anyone noticing. :evil: Damn Andy and his laptop, along with H&R and their species seedlings and the South American vendors and...well it was a fun time

    Recently, my wife asked "who is this Andy person on speed dial?"

    So Bob, who is this vendor and where can we find his sales list????? ;)

    "You can get off alcohol, drugs, women, food, and cars, but once you're hooked on orchids, you're finished. You never get off orchids...never."

    Joe Kunisch, commercial orchid grower, as quoted by Eric Hansen in his book, Orchid Fever.
