Happy Granola – Triple Chocolate

So the police came to establish my GMS system. But first the two of them drove up on a motorcycle, 40 minutes early. I was pulling down in the taxi for a quick trip to the pharmacy for my airbnb guest. They had smiles and said, “Oh, don’t worry! We’ll be here and wait for you.” So we came back super fast, but couldn’t find them. Then  40 minutes past the hour I heard their motorcycle coming down the road – which means they’d been up in the mountains. They came in, talked, gabbed, set up my system, all that. Then walked around, big big grins on their faces. One looked at my pot of rice and thought that was the funniest thing in the world, ha ha, for some reason. They helped me with the guy who hasn’t put in my windows, know him! And said where to report it to, a new office, and that to call them if nothing happened. I walked them out and walked into a huge cloud of mj. Whoa! That was strong! Then more, further up the driveway. No wonder they were so happy! And I was glad to start/maintain good relations with them, ha ha. I heard the younger one say, “I love you!” to the older policeman. Oh my gosh, so funny.

Tip of the Day – Make friends with police, if possible! It was never possible for me in Montana, but here its a different story! I always say hi to the guard at the bank. Then he helped me on a personal level, three times, holding my dog, running after me with my passport, etc…
