That's pretty funny.

One is too many and one hundred is not enough.

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime and break his one a day limit
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his southern comfort
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way
It ought to be

You will all appreciate this. Thank me later. Enjoy and just go ahead. Eat another pie.

Earworm.

So a straw in a bottle of bourbon should be OK then.

Yes and no.

Back in my college days, one of my fraternity brothers, when asked "How many beers is that for you?" would respond "Just one -- there's a bunch of empty cans over there, but this is just one beer."

I believe scientists need to do more useful studies. Perhaps going to Australia and doing an updated study of the local snakes, spiders and various flying or burrowing insects.

They would be more useful there than messing with our nerve tonics at times like these.

Nowhere in that article does it say how big that drink has to be. I'm not a drinker however I do appreciate a little Scotch now and then. I had knee surgery a few months ago and the doctor told me some Tylenol would be okay for the pain. I tried what they call a Mamie Taylor cocktail (scotch, ginger ale, and lime juice) and threw the Tylenol away.

One bourbon, one shot, one beer.

The bartender at this place where I used to gig had a bit of a drinking problem. He would also surreptitiously dip into the whisky bottles that belonged to regular customers. His wife had told him, "Not one drink!" So he obediently made sure he didn't have just one.

She didn't get the message. There must be so many more former Laker Girls who make themselves vulnerable like this.

Note - We had a former Laker girl as a patient and I had to tell her one was enough on many occasions. She was busy marrying some 82 year old bazillinaire and didn't listen to a word I said. We also had a couple of beauty pageant winners in the office years ago whom I suspect are happily married today to 82 year old bazillinairs. I tried to tell them between poses, "one is enough." I got the impression one 82 year old bazillionaire is all that is needed when taking advice. No one listens to me.

man tom - NFW!

I've been feeling what I would characterize as 'feeling progressively worse' with each passing day being subject to all the COVID regulations. You?

pogo - thanks for the vote of confidence and you're welcome.

While I'm here I thought I would give you a sure way to relieve a little of the stress you're no doubt feeling with all the COVID things going on.

Ready? S-E-X.

pogo- thanks for the vote of confidence or the 30.06 shot to the back. Not sure what it is I'm feeling.

BTW- if you are feeling a little down about all the COVID things affecting your life, I have a suggestion that should reease a loy=t of the tension you may be feeling.

S-E-X.

I've posted a couple of messages on here which have apparently been redirected to the Wall Street Journal because they are not showing up on the Blog. If they show up read them and take them to heart.

Sorry this was not funny.
Jesting aside . . those who say that we all have to die sometime and that they'd rather die happy rarely actually die happy. I know someone who, at this very moment, is in hospital in ICU because in addition to a failed liver, the kidneys started to shut down. (hepatorenal syndrome) Doctors are trying to see if he can recover from this major breakdown in order to even be considered for a liver transplant. He quit drinking, but the damage has been done.

I once had a friend who said, "Having an alcoholic in the family kind of takes the fun out of drinking." She was right. The addiction is not for merriment with friends. Loved ones can only observe the damage being done as long as the alcoholic denies they have a problem.
