Happy Belated Birthday to Me 9

Just got back from celebrating at Tangier. Second Son came down from Joisey to join us.

Drinking conservatively is not an option.

The highlight, though, was meeting another Slackware devote.

    There seems to be a certain number missing from this post.

    Yeah. Like how many Malibu Baybreeze’s Frank (elder) had.

    (Runs. FAST.)

    I’d be more interested in seeing a certain TRUTHFUL number, myself. What’s a Malibu Baybreeze?

    “What’s a Malibu Baybreeze?”

    He just turned 30, I know, he looks good for having a 18 year old kid.

    Malibu Bay Breeze:

    1 1/2 oz Malibu rum
    2 oz Cranberry juice
    2 oz Pineapple juice
    Mix ingredients and serve over ice.

    Happy Birthday, dad.

    30? I think not, given the fact that he had a draft number for Vietnam.

    Anyway, the drink sounds less painful than a Long Island Iced Tea, which if I’m going to have a drink, that’s it.

    Jeez, Karen, only serious drinkers drink Long Island iced tea.

    I bow to your expertise.

    And, Phillybits, I NEVER drink anything with fruit juice in it. It might have a vitamin.

    I stick to Scotch and, when I’m poor, Canadian.

    To quote a friend of mine of Scottish heritage, “If God hae wanted there to be water in it, he’d hae put water in it.”

    Thanks for the good wishes.

    And Opie, like Heinz, 57.

    (Speaking of which, did you know I used to live three blocks from where Senator Heinz’s plane went down at Lower Merion Elementary? He was a good man.)

    (aside) Opie, there’s a Drinking Liberally in your hometown. Regular iced teas are allowed also.

    Naw, no expertise. The last time I had one, we stayed here.. It was when the Pacers & Pistons had that brawl on the court & in the stands.

    Hope the day was nice for you, though.
