    Hey BigCarnivourKid, maybe you should start growing that rajah now, because it won't be big until your daughter grows up! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    In bleak description the waves come crashing; battering the very instinct of every lusting moment to fulfill this gaping desire. A mouth as dry as soot and how it once had tasted of life, fit within a momentís time; And how those fleeting days laid in the light of blissful suffering. -me

    Maybe I can explain a little better.
    Within the last year or so my wife has had a series of medical problems. I also had quite a few legal problems. With the doctor visits, hospital stays, surgeries, court appearances and missed work, last winter I was was not doing very well financially. One of the things I had to sacrifice was my membership to the ICPS. As a surprise Nick renewed my subscription for me.
    I saw Nick drooling over this plant when we visited Meijers Gardens in January. I have been thinking of a way to repay him. I got the opportunity to buy the same N.rajah he drooled over, his drool is probably still in the soil. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I knew this was the opportunity to say thanks to Nick. So I ordered the plant and had it shipped to Nick with no plant ID, return address, nothing. I wanted to see if Nick could figure it out. When he got the plant he started trying to find out who send it. I wasn't ready to fess up yet. So I dropped quite a few hints for him to figure out, (Maybe the plant followed him home,)(maybe somebody was repaying him for a good deed) ect, ect. Of course every hint flew right over his head. Finally I felt sorry for him and I let him off the hook.
    Nick made the comment that I paid more for the plant then he did the membership, but I believe that whatever somebody does to or for you, you should at least return the gesture double. I saw a bumper sticker that said "I wish twice as much to you as you wish for me" and that is how I am. I'll do to you double whatever you did to me. Ask Spec, he knows that first hand, lol.

    Nick you should be the one here that's being thanked. You're the one that helped me out and expected nothing in return. Thank you.
