Yep, those are the ones. We only have 5 of that size and 4 of the smaller (4 oz?) ones. They are very cool, makes you feel extra stylish swirling your old fashioned.  I found a bottle of Sazerac rye too, so now I need to come up with a recipe.

Ahh. Lawn mowing.
A continuing saga.

Today I read a letter my first grade teacher sent me yesterday.
First grade was '60-'61 school year for me!
I've kept in contact with her through the years. My mom was really the one who did most of that through the years. They were friends from the start.
I think I posted an old black and white picture of myself and my brother when my teacher got married back in '63 someplace around here.
She dated my uncle just before then. My uncle is now 93. My teacher is now 86.
Anyways, I sent her some flowers this last Valentines Day with a card "To my first Valentine." She got a kick out of that.
I need to write her back today.

That's way cool. Only thing that would top it is if her name was Helen and you asked for credit.

I could only get 4 out of 6 flower plantings at the cemeteries. The traffic was like a parking lot that stopped me from completing my goals. Now I have to wait until Sunday cause it’s raining today.

Getting the potted plants made up for the cemeteries for tomorrow. Got 4 made up and then 2 are ground plantings. I’m the only one left who has any care for our departed love ones. This day physically kills me and takes a better part of a day but at least one of us thinks it’s worth it.

And when I depart this Earth no one will plant a flower at my grave. 


Tell us where it'll happen... then will all show up and dance on it.

Many years ago I was selected for Federal jury duty in NYC.  One trial I was "screened" for was some sort of mob-related/racketeering charge stuff.  I was eventually dismissed for being of Italian descent - by the defense oddly enough.  Another trial was an international drug-dealing thing and I was dismissed for having had an old CPCS arrest.  I was relieved not to have had to serve as a juror for either of those trials - there were scary looking characters in the "public" areas, taking down names, for both of those jury selections.



In my dotage/retirement I've considered signing up for the Grand Jury, just to try to have someone there who isn't a crazy lunatic buffoon. But I worry that it'll result in burly sunglass-wearing monolithic goons showing up to have a conversation, and we're all polite here, aren't we?

 A few years ago I got called - and picked - for an extraordinary case where the bad guy was accused of LOTs of things. Got hired into a company where he then brought in more of his bad guy buddies, then committed arson and insurance fraud. While in jail he threatened the life of some people (as reported by other inmates). The very tolerant judge seemed to know him well as they'd been going round and round for months, with this guy trying to represent himself. This was all explained on day one. I was juror #1 but asked the judge if I could be excused (I had tickets for 3 Steely Dan shows during their Vegas residency and this overlapped). Fortunately, he didn't want to know why I wanted out, since I was honorable and he would take my word. (!) but agreed to cut it short one week so I could still be on the jury and make my "engagement." Really a cool dude. But then, the very next day, the lawyers excused me completely.
