New Year's

Older daughter, DH and I experienced some of the craziness this state has to offer. We drove the 18.5 miles (one way) to buy booze. Now, DH and I were thinking ahead when we went on Monday. Beath the New Year's Eve rush and all that. Well, later that evening OD called to ask when we were going to make the booze run again. I told her we were just there but we would go with her if she wanted. So we arranged to go with OD on her day off.

When you are in a semi-dry county, which means you can buy beer in stores and can have and buy wine at the in-county winery, and you can buy liquor by the glass at restaurants, you make sure your booze run is complete. There is no running out of Vodka or in our case Bourbon and then making a run to the drug store or party store on the corner.

One of the stipulations I made, was we weren't going late in the afternoon. It gets dark before 5 p.m. here and I do not want to be on the road to Gainesboro or on the way back when it is dark. Too easy to miss turns and boy it gets dark out there.

Needless to say, the place was a madhouse! People lined up and three registers open. Very efficient though. Unfortunately for OD, they did not have her Vanilla Vodka in stock. My suggestion, since she was going to mix with coke anyway, was to buy Vanilla coke. Hope it was good, kid!

As for DH and I? Staying home and chilling with the bourbon. Yum!
