I am sitting back, having a coffee and writing notes for my blog when I hear, “Excuse me Mate!” At first I thought here was a contractor or plumber, by his sexy shorts and work boots. Then I noticed the bullet proof vest and badge.
My next thought was immigration check. So I let him know I from Canada and would he like to see my passport. He replied, “No mate, your landlord has several cannabis plants growing and we are here to take care of it.” I quickly replied, “Cool! I get to see New Zealand’s finest in action.” He laughs and only really asked one question, if I had any. I said no and said, feel free to check, but he declined.
We had a nice little conversation about Canada verses New Zealand on drugs, etc while the other coppers cleaned the mess up.
So far, it’s been a great day. Already had my morning coffee, and starting my lunch beer, with a free show. What more could you ask for on a Friday.
Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures because I felt a little uncomfortable asking when I am a visitor in the country.
Side note: the landlord is a rather funny, but slightly different type of women. She told me today she is a 65 year old hippy and I laughed and said, “I am a wanna be 25 year old stud!”.
Just enjoy life and be kind to others! Rest is all but fluff.
