Sure, Sandi - what kind of tequila?

Take care,

There was something fishy about the butler.  I think he was a Pisces, probably working for scale.

I'm not going to be able to hang here tonight...going out for real with some friends to listen to a science lecture.  John was a scientist and I caught a little bit of the bug from him.  Meanwhile, enjoy a Margarita in my absence!

Hey gang!  I've been out of the loop for a couple of days, getting the house picked up for a 12-person Bunco game here.  We'd made a mess of things, sorting through tubs from the attic, but the Redneck did a good job of helping me get things picked up, and then keeping himself and the dogs out of the house while everyone is here.

What's everyone drinking tonight?  I know Maureen won't be around.  She's off with smart people tonight.   ;D

Ooh, I have leftovers from Bunco that I've brought to the Bistro.  BBQ pulled pork, cole slaw, veggie pizza, chips and salsa, and cupcakes.  Help yourselves!!

I'm constantly trying to show these Michigan peeps how to do barbecue.   ;D

Wait till it warms up enough for me to do some baby back ribs!!  (Gawd... Will it EVER warm up here??  I was duped, my first Michigan spring, 4 years ago... Warmed up really nicely, stayed in the 70's in April and May, 80's most of the summer... It was all a trick!).

I'll take one of those margaritas.  Earlier today, I was with some fellow retired coworkers and asked one guy about his wife, who had taken the early retirement at the same time I did a few years ago.  Turns out she died the year after retirement (!) and I had never heard about it.  I was a little taken aback when his response to my "I'm so sorry" was to chuckle and say "Why? It wasn't your fault."  ???     (In my defense, he had been talking about his wife; I assumed it was the one I knew but come to find out, he was already remarried.)  I know we all handle grief differently, but I just found that response a little odd.  Oh, well...

Yeah, that was kind of an odd response... But also sounds like something I'd say if I was in a really sassy mood.   :P  Like when a co-worker commented on my loss of weight about 4 or 5 months after his death, right in front of a group of other co-workers... I just blurted out, "I don't recommend the method."  I felt really bad afterwards, but it was already out.  I'm usually better at filtering my words, to the point of sometimes wishing I HAD blurted out my first thought.

Coming up!  I'm having my usual White Zin.  Anyone know why it's called "White" Zinfindel, when it's not even white, it's pink??

Anyone want to try my Davy Crockett Cinnamon Whiskey, straight from Tennessee?  It'll give you a burn!!

Glass of malbec here...ok, second glass...

Dinner was a Haitian pumpkin soup.  Made it as a request for an oncology patient who's not doing well & his family. The recipe made a ton if you are in the area stop by - tastes good to me (although couldn't tell you if it tastes like it's supposed to)!

mokie, that cinnamon whiskey sounds like it would be good in a mug of warm cider come Halloween time :)

Hey ManutesGirl!!  The soup sounds good enough to try... Scoop me up a bowl!  And Mancino, you're right!!  That does sound good.  I usually make my grandmother's warm cider with red hots in it, but the cinnamon whiskey instead of the red hots sounds amazing!!

Actually, it sounds good with the pumpkin soup!  Who's in?

I've got the Malbec going too, per typical Friday night (and red pen; will it ever end?).  What sort of music is playing in the Bistro tonight?  Maybe Eddie Vedder will show up and serenade us.  Yum!
