I did not over imbibe on New Year's Eve. I was in bed, watching Russian Dash Cam videos by 9:30pm.
Happy New Years's btw.
Earlier today, being on a staycation since Christmas, I had a few* bottles of the hoppy brew.
This evening, the drink of choice is Tito's Wodka with a splash of Ruby Red Grapefruit juice from the fertile valley of Tejas. (that's Texas for those of you born after our war of independence from the sadistic dictator Santa Ana )**
* If you are my tee totalling methodist Aunt, one is too many. I know, right? You thought only the baptists lied about drinking. More to the point...it was more than "one".
** Not to be confused with Santa Clause. Why does Santa's name have a "clause" in it? So many mysteries. Another blog post I suppose.
I digress. (which is the actual reason for the footnotes)
There's a reason for our territorial attitude in Texas. We gave up all of Oklahoma and quite a bit of Colorado to join the Union. We are still bigger than France, and certainly less inclined to drop our guns and run.
