    I was waiting for this to pop-up because I missed the first few minutes the other night. 9pm sneaks up on you quicker that one might think. I always know when it’s 7pm but 9pm is another story! (CST) LOL! Excellent show! Trader Joe’s was the winner! The bottle looks somewhat like Siete Leguas! The TJ’s had a real cork too! And you know it’s good when the reposado beats out the extra anejo!

    I, for one, enjoyed the random doodling! Just another component to the show.

    Thanks for the comments. Rasta! I think I’ll keep the doodling around as another “arrow in the quiver” kinda thing. It’ll also be good to be able to sketch out flavor profiles and tings that might resemble a football game’s graphic overlay (X’s & O’s..)

    “Prison Music”! Ha, I LOVE that!. I think Tom Waits would be pleased as well!

    I thought it was Captain Beefheart at first but then I recognized the King of Prison Music.

    that kind of thing.

    you’re adorable.

    My first taste of Trader Joe’s “Distinqt” was at a fireworks show on the water in Sausalito. I guess it’s a kind of ‘celebration” repo??!?

    Thanks for watching, “Floozy”!
