  •  Ah yes, the hippie daze! (8+ / 0-)

    I got myself out of the back of a police car without going to jail.

    While hitchhiking a guy tried to put me in his trunk and I escaped only because I fought him for a long time until another car was coming.

    Back on the highway I was freaked that he was going to stop for me again. A car with 3 people in the front seat stopped.

    One had very long hair and I was so relieved to see a woman. Then they all turned around and all had beards.

    I once flew from MI to Canada on a one way ticket because I was driving across the Rockies to Vancouver and then down to the states.

    I was tired of being hassled about smoking pot in the bathroom on the plane so I baked brownies. I timed them out perfectly, or so I thought.

    We made a landing early to go through customs so I had to eat 2 brownies at a time. By the time it was my turn to talk to the Duannes (sp?), I was totally incoherent.

    They put me in a little room and searched me and questioned me but I don't think I made much sense.

    In the end my flight was leaving so an officer drove me through customs (where they confiscated my Penthouse and Oui magazines) and drove me to the plane.

    These days my excitement comes from TV and elk in the garden.

      Stuff like that, tho I never had a trunk stuffer. I did have a guy who had given me ride while I was hitching just show up in my livingroom a couple hours later. Eek

      I got busted on no evidence once, naturally the charges were dropped. The night before I was on acid and kept hallucinating cop lights and sirens so the next day I got up early and cleaned out the little rental house we had. I took everything out to the garage and buried it.

      At about 3 or 4 in the afternoon they came thru the doors and windows, Canned Heat was on the stereo, I remember hearing "This is a song with a message..." Boom. They brought the news and everything and ended up hauling my ass to jail for two seeds and a cookie sheet with some burnt blueberry muffins on it. I know!

      While searching the knocked a pillow into the water heater and burned the house down. They couldn't wait to dismiss charges.

      And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay. Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away. John Prine

          about remembering the 60s? It's a lie! I remember it well and even with all the weird stuff I consider myself supremely lucky to have been born when I was and to have all those experiences.
