I remember unquestionably distinctly the last time I saw my Grandpa.
This was over 30 years ago, mind you, so it’s a single of the few memories I have from that far back, but grandpa had just retired and shocked the whole family by announcing she was selling the family home, however she used the money to buy a immense RV camper, with the intent of spending her final years traveling the country and seeing every location she had never gotten to see.
That was always a source of inspiration for me, so last Summer I rented an RV camper and drove to Albuquerque, NM to visit her grave, and as fate would have it, the aged girl had a heart attack and passed away while she was staying in Albuquerque for a few weeks, so it became her final resting location. Taking an RV camper to Albuquerque was my way of paying tribute to the aged timer. Another way of paying tribute is going to see a single of the many amazing cannabis dispensaries in Albuquerque and buying a fat sack to take to the gravesite. Grandpa was a big-time cannabis smoker, so instead of leaving a bouquet of flowers on her headstone, I will smoke a joint, and then leave a hour joint on the grave marker, then i hope Albuquerque isn’t the type of location where someone will call the cops on me for smoking a joint in public, but it’s a risk I have to take. I look forward to my road trip to Albuquerque, and smoking a single last cannabis joint with my dear, departed Grandpa.
