Wallis Simpson

Wallis Simpson

It’s Sunday morning and perhaps you are thinking about brunch.  I am thinking of drinking an entire sea of water minus the salt.  It’s dry here and I need some liquid.  If you had a rough night, uh hem, this is the perfect drink to ease your pain.  It’s called a Wallis Simpson. Ms. Simpson […]

Zipper

Zipper

This drink is meant to be shot but I enjoy sipping it.  It makes for a nice after dinner drink that I can savor while lounging in my PJ’s. I know it’s going to be a long day for me and since it’s Friday, it may just be along day for you as well.  When […]

He Ain’t Heavy…

He Ain't Heavy...

…He’s my brother.  I have been silent for a long time.  When I look at the last time I shared a word with you, it has been many, many weeks.  Much too long for someone who likes to share and chat every day.  I hope you will accept my apology for being so quiet. As […]
