    When you travel a distance to an orchid show then you have to sneak a wagon loaded with orchids through the lobby at the Biltmore Hotel and to the elevators up to your room.

    I'm dieing....I can't laugh more than that....you are all crazy orchids addicted.

    the worse is that I do make about 60% of these crazy things.


    here I go,
    you know when you became an addicted when his only son, with whom you share very short time during the week tells you:

    mom, I can do anything you want with you this next weekend, except to buy orchids.

    or

    If you give up the orchids I'll have my normal life back.

    poor,....

    Ok, I can TOTALLY identify with most of these. And then there is

    .........when you jeapardize your place to live by buying just one more and the only concern you have with that is how you will be able to move all your babies and can you find a place that will hold them all.

    I love this thread and I love this forum.

    Oh, and MichealP, we will wait patiently at the bottom of this addiction chasm for you. Trust me, you will be here soon!!

    You might be an orchid addict...if you go looking at new houses and the first thing you look for is a good spot for the orchids.

    You might be an addict if...you post on FB that you went out for lunch and your family all asks what kind and how many orchids you bought. (i don't know WHY they would think like that at all...ahem)

    Your friends and family want to know how many is "enough"...tsk tsk...what a question. Like a few thousand maybe??

    When someone looks at all the shelves and asks "Are they all orchids?"...and you are picturing where another shelf might fit.

    ....i've been at this too long...at least the hubby is resigned to it all now.
