Funny you should mention your old man; I'm at my parents' house for the week of Christmas. I don't drink Blanton's by myself. But yeah it's the best, probably my favorite bourbon out there. It can hang right in there with Pappy Van Winkle and the like. And such a classy bottle design too! Hello. Smoking something like my sixth bowl of Special Latakia Flake today, this time in a Wally Frank Canadian. This must be what it's like to be Wicker Man, minus the Yorkshire accent and the voodoo dolls, lol. Cooled down to 30F here, with a very slight breeze; supposed to only get up to 40F here tomorrow, with 15 mph winds, so it will be almost like it's winter time. We had a white Christmas last time around. That won't happen this time, but I'll enjoy it just the same. And then I'm off to New York City. Time for a little fun.
