    Ahhhh...does a body good to read things like this. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] This is how it should be between people--being kind to one another. You never know when you do a good deed when it will be returned to you, whether by the same person or someone else.

    You just can't beat good friends who care. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    And congrats on that rajah...I hope it grows well for you. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thanks a bunch Ozzy!

    The first comments out of my mouth were on the lines of "Who sent me a Nepenthes rajah"? But on a bit more color in the wording.

    I recognized the plant right off. I just couldn't believe it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I spent a few hours trying to verify that it was indeed what I thought it was and also to find out who sent it. As Ozzy said, he tossed out a few hints. They all just flew right over me.

    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

    You got it Spec, I didn't think you'd get that.

    Doug, you might not get a hug but, I'd be sure to give you something in return, maybe a boot to the..... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.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.
    This was a ton of fun to watch. You guys seem to know how to have a good time. I wish I could have met you both in person when you were here! Maybe next time.

    I have had a few people PM me to ask what I have for sale here at Frederik Meijer Gardens, so I wanted to add a quick note to this whole story.

    The plant that Oz bought was one that Amori had here from his own collection. Oz got it from Amori not me. I just had the pleasure of sending it off in an unmarked container.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    I don't really sell plants, only trade them...

    Great story guys, makes me feel good everytime I read through these posts...
