GANJA GRANNY sez WE KEPT IT LIT at 2012,GAY PRIDE PARADE!
GANJA GRANNY sez KEEPING IT LIT applies to the 2012, Gay Pride Parade. This past Sunday, a number of groups in favor of Legalization of Cannabis, marched proudly with our brothers and sisters of the LGBT Community and we definitely kept it lit…. In fact, Ganja Granny kept it lit, throughout most of the parade, compliments of Michael Mc Kenna of the Yippie Cafe…. Ganja Granny was happily bumped, humped and dumped a few times during the course of the parade. It was a magical, surreal experience for everyone….. The real HIGH is to hear the roar of the crowd as we march into their view… The sound and the feeling is more addictive that hard drugs.. It is exactly what we need…. to keep us going, giving us that extra push.. to fight a little harder than before…… We have so much to learn from the entire Gay Community……and how they have dealt with their on going struggles.. How could they not win… with their special brand of determination and dedication… not to mention BIG MONEY supporters. STONEWALL gave them the courage to organize and fight back… WHAT WILL BE OUR STONEWALL?… What can make our cause successful as theirs.. We all know the struggle continues and we will all have to keep fighting to come out of OUR SMOKE FILLED CLOSETS! The Gay Community is an inspiration to all people, who have ever had their rights trampled on..Ganja Granny gives thanks to all who came and marched with us… It was a great line up… NORML led in our section with Moms United following. Saint Ann’s Corner House of Recovery was next and we splashed out with our huge LEGALIZE CANNABIS NOW! banner. MEDICAL MARIJUANA NOW, looking good as ever, brought up the rear.. We were an awesome, impressive group.. Thanks also goes to Ms Moossy…Miss Joan Marie Moossy allowed her creative juices to take over and made us huge joints to use as props…Hey! If it was legal… we would use the real thing.. I had a huge fake Blunt or whatever they call ’em… filled with burning sage… I was fooling around and I started puffing on it, making huge clouds of smoke… Each time I did this… The crowd went crazy..People ran into the street… asking me for a hit.. Ya gotta congratulate The Pie Man! There was a point where he could not get a ride to Manhattan.. He not only got a ride, he had some really great guys, taking turns pushing him in his wheel chair..Thanks to the gorgeous muscles of John Murdock, William C and Bovenga Na Maduma…Pie Man”s allegiance to the cause, is a lesson for us all….he was going to be there by hook or by crook…. Their were after parties galore…… I was privileged to attend a 70th birthday party for Nate Riley…Others made their way to the Yippie Cafe or down to the Piers… Everyone who could not march or left early seem to be at Nate’s Party and so were all the goodies.. I barely remember getting home.. Someone said I took a girl home? I can assure you I dropped her off at the HAMPTON Jitney like any Granny would do..…. I was exhausted from the days activities. Unfortunately, I still had a problem sleeping. I Could not stop thinking about how much fun we had, how fabulous we looked and how we really did make ourselves heard and seen….Ganja Granny sez Thank you to everyone who came…especially Cindy Day who has never let us down, My grandson George, who took photos along with my Godson/adopted son Dana. All the lovely ladies, Deanna, Nadine and Denice who always make us proud…and who could match the wonderful fotos that Paul De Rienzo took for us…. I cannot forget the guys who took turns carrying our banner, Guillermo, Tony, Paul Bennett, Michael, Bovenga and a few others. I apologize because I cannot remember each one by name… We thank each and every one of you.. Ganja Granny sez Keep It Lit..and PASS IT AROUND….. WE WILL BE BACK, BIGGER THAN EVER BEFORE..WE’LL BE SMOKIN’ SOON!
