A few years ago, a very tall TN friend and I decided to get in on the Gaskin fun. I think it was their second listings of seedlings, and the prices were going through the roof. My tall friend and I pooled our finances, and jumped into the bidding. We used his alias.
The bidding was fast and furious, and it was great fun to feel part of the excitement. We both had just finished a very profitable year, which allowed us to be dumb together. We ended up winning, and no, I won't tell you how much, and the plant was sent to my friend, with me getting a piece in the spring. It has been gorgeous for him, and reluctant for me. I have no seeds from it, and now never will.
The lesson here for all of you gathered around? If you want to have some dumb fun, find a rich friend (James, are you listening...lol), and join in the excitement!
Many times I will need to end a story to my many grandkids.....NEVER do what grandpa did....lol.
