I see ya pard, and raise you. Eating fresh fruit right off the bush/tree. Smelling the roses you planted years ago. Eating nuts off the tree your father planted for you. Watching the lizards run around and display to each other. The knowledge you can go anywhere in a continent just by hopping in a car and going - any place, any time, even 3 in the morning. Having 30 friends over in the backyard and Bar Be Queing. Squirrels for slingshot target practice. Nobody over/under/common wall to you making noise...Pot's to you, pard.
