    I don't think I seen the offer. I have been offered drinks all along and have excepted all of them.

    I accept your offer Ms. Firecat1.

    Pour me what ever you are drinking.

    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    Sorry firecat, been too busy to notice. Hence the absence lately all around.

    If the offer is still open, a couple stiff ones, if you don't mind.

    I stopped putting "Tax Free Weekend" on the side of my ice cream van that I drove in Memphis after kids started flagging me down wanting the free ice cream they thought I was giving out.
    The thought of my tax dollars being wasted on their reading and comprehension lessons didn't bother me so much as it did when their parents came out demanding that i give their kids free ice cream like it said on the van.
    I'd put that on the van as a joke since in the month before school starts in Tennessee,the government skips the sales tax for school related items.You'd think some people would understand it.

    Has anyone else tried Proof whiskey? It's actually quite tasty but don't go ruining it with ice like the image shows.

    When I was a snipe in the Navy(Super Naturally Intelligent Propulsion Engineer),we'd make bilge whiskey.
    Someone would bring in some sugar,yeast and fruit juice(one of our firerooms opened up right by the galley back entrance.I'm not confessing to anything.I'm just sayin') and we'd mix it up in clean oil sample bottles,cap them tightly,put them a double layer of trash bags and put them where the officers wouldn't look for two weeks.Hence,the name "bilge whiskey".
    After two weeks,we'd retrieve the bags on the mid watch(0000-0400) and have the junior man pick out a botle at random to taste test.
    The junior guy always got the duty because we never knew if we were getting 10 proof because not enough yeast and sugar was added or 110 proof because a hair over too much yeast and sugar was added.
    Some of that stuff would ignite gunpowder on a plate,like the way the Brits used to test proof of their rum before issuing it when they'd splice the main brace every day.

    Depending on which recipe is used, those are pretty tasty.

    If you've been there, on "BC street" (red, white and blue light district), then you might have a different opinion. It had an opium base to it.

    Sold off the shelf, Tax Stamps on it, perfectly legal...... But Strange.

    Jeremiah Weed is the name. A Bourbon Liquor with the Viscosity of the older Vicks Cough Syrup. 90 Proof. Comes in an Octagon shaped Green Glass Bottle. Smooth, Mellow, Great Stuff.......... The Problem is the Mule...... After about 3 Drinks, out of nowhere, this Mule comes up and kicks you in the back of the head and you never see it coming...........

    My late Brother and his wife had a nice Bar in the Basement Rec Room, and once or twice a year they would have a party to celebrate something or other. Laura and I gave them a Fifth of Jeremiah back in the mid 80s, and I think half of it is still sitting there........

    I've heard "tell" of bilge whiskey. That was a bit (and I mean only a BIT) before my navy time. Some of the stories I've heard.... nuff said, I think.
