What is going on? I feel like I'm drunk, pinned to the bottom of Ken's pool again.

Are you trying to attempt a big blow-off kiss to us (the Searle's) or for the Johnson's or to all your fan club members that have endured this lengthy thread? ah, just wondering......also did the "boy-toy" sitting next to you behave himself on the way home? Just thought I asked. :)

I've got a million of 'em, I wrote them down here some place on various scraps of paper...ah...where are they ?...Oh, here's one. "Why don't matty and paul go to hawaii and Col and I will meet you there and we can have a big hoola hoop ?" no, I think it means loohow or something.. anyway, that's one.

Fabulous thread guys...I really enjoyed seeing every page. You guys should be awarded with the IPS palmtalk trophy for the palm related trip of the year...and the prize should be a free trip for the Biennial Rio 2010...haha.

BTW, what new seedlings have you taken back home, mattyB?

I love the free trip idea Gileno!!! Ken was generous enough to give me a Coccothrinax crinita. I also brought home 4 Copernicia hospita seeds and Old Ned gave me some Miracle Fruit (Sensepalum dulcificum) seeds. Paul was the real go getter for seed collecting on this trip.

Paul looked in heaven at the free seed table at the Fairchild Sale. Hope he didn't eat any of the fishtail seeds. :huh:

Cause they still haven't posted "those" photos. Sooner or later, though, someone will give in and post them.

Kris,

Certainly you must have some high tech questions for our young, Cali boys. Please do not be afraid to ask them.

I declared several times, "I have palms", but the airport people kept on wiping the drool off of my lip and saying, "Oh, look at Paul Denton with that nice little retarded boy."
