Growing more than just roses...

Aren’t these roses pretty? I admit I cut them from my neighbor’s garden. But they won’t mind. There’s no one living there -- the house is in foreclosure.

That’s because the owner of the house rented it to some tenants who turned it into a grow house. As in a marijuana grow house. And they did a good job of it. We live next door and never suspected a thing. The owner was always quiet and his new tenants, were very, very quiet. The tenants installed a bunch of lights, planted some pot and then watched it grow. And grow. And grow. Our local drug cops eventually figured all this out, staked out the house, and then one night they busted them.

Now the house is empty. The grass is overgrown. But the roses are still blooming. And now they’re decorating my desk.
