Just spent the day doing house chores. Cleaned the pool, trimmed the hedges, pulled weeds, put together our new Viking grill, hung new drapes and reupholstered a hallway table. That more than justifies the heavy pour of VOF '62 in my tumbler.

What did you do today...and what did you pour as your reward?

I was on a ladder most of the day, trimming the lower branches off trees - fortunately, I did this prior to havingf a very generous pour of Elijah Craig 18 y.o...

(Of course, if I had it before my tree climbing, I might have been willing to go higher...:grin: )

LOL Mat. :lol: What a coincidence. It was rainy here this morning, so I decided to do some inside spring cleaning and a few chores too. Did dishes, to start the day, then began an on going process of laundry and giving my computer/bourbon room a thorough cleaning. I'm also taking the time to rearrange it a little, and update my inventory spreadsheet. :rolleyes: I've been treating myself to some Pappy 15 throughout the day. :grin: Cheers! Joe

Today and yesterday I mostly wrote procedures for work in anticipation of getting new equipment.

I'm about half done. If I did these at work I'd never get them done.

I did have a little WLW 117.9 this morning as mentioned in another thread.

This morning I took the boat to a nearby island for a few hours with the cousins and we sat on the beach, and then went out kayaking through the marsh this afternoon. I definitely deserve this pour of ND OGD 86!

I am sad to say I suffered through the beginnings of a cold all day, and my only pour was a generous shot of Vick's Formula something or other.

But I DESERVE a good pour of Pappy 15 that is calling my name.

I sat through 3 games of softball my daughters team was playing in, for the second day in a row. They went undefeated and won their tournament, the second in 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I have to work midnights tonight so I'll be toasting Memorial day with something nice, but yet undetermined!

After a week of stress, grief and living at a hospital 24 hour type days, I am tonight peacefully contemplative with pours of Louisville Special Reserve, Pappy 15, WT Old No. 8 (93), WT Rare Breed (95) and Very Rare Old Dowling BIB 16 year, distilled at reg. dist # 5 in 1953.

Popped a new bottle of ERSB in celebration of my acceptance to nursing school, then followed that with pours of OWA and ORVW 107. I only hope I can keep up the pours with my nose to the grindstone!

Pretty easy day.... just a few yard chores and then prep for a BBQ for my kids and their families plus a few of our friends. Feeding 15 folks does end up being work! Just a few pours of VW 10/90 late in the evening...

Congratulations! You will obviously have to double up on your drinking to make up for it. :cool:

Congratulations on your acceptance. Sounds like you're already well acquainted with the benefits of self-medicating. :grin:

Thanks for the congrats, guys! I'll probably be making up for missed pours on the weekends. The waiting will only make them taste that much sweeter! :grin:

I deserve the couple of pours of Blanton's I'm enjoying right now because I get to spend the rest of the day at my wife's brother's house... who hates whiskey of any kind. I'll be drinking Budweiser the rest of the day.:rolleyes:

Sat on the couch all day weaving in and out of consciousness. Now sipping on a new bottle of Elmer T. Lee. Not bad stuff.

My wife and I kept the grandkids( 1 yr and 3 yr old) for the holiday weekend so my youngest and his wife could go to the beach. Last night, Stagg, Buffalo Trace, Wathens and Evan Wms SB came out.

I've heard of 'mother's little helper'...guess you've discovered 'grandpa's little helper'?

Lets see, my seventh granddaughter was born on May 6th which is her great-grandmother's birthday. I just returned from a 2400 mile round trip to Minnesota in seven days to see my son graduate from Mankato State so I am medicating myself with some Buffalo Trace.

Medicate away, man, and get some rest! That's a helluva trip in a short time!

Thanks, my butt is still dragging but I got to load up on bourbon that I have to order so it was not in vain.

I do not know what bourbon I will deserve by saturday, but it will be a good one. I am on the wagon during the week now. This is day 2, I will need a good one by this weekend. I think I will treat myself well.

Nice thread here, I'll preface my achievements here with the fact that I am working my way through my last year of college here, taking a couple summer courses. Anyways, I had two job interviews in the last two days, each went well, so I feel like I deserve some bourbon tonight, to enjoy during game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

I'd say it qualifies. OWA is one of the best pours around at any price. And congrats on the exam!

Since I have been a good boy all week and rode the wagon. I bought a liter of George Dickel Cascade hollow. I know it ain't bourbon, but Geroge has always been my favorite. And the younger the better. I stopped by and got it, and my wife says, I want to go by the mall. i said ok, if you drive. I got me a big old pull of it. I enjoyed my mall trip. I really deserved that.

Hate mall trips with the wife. She has to go into every store in the place. I once told her that I felt that I was the only man in America who went to Las Vegas and was dragged to Walmart to see if they had different yarn. My wife is a knitter. She does not ask anymore.:cool:

Tell me about it, she went to every damn store in the place. If I had not have been so far from the car, I would have slipped out and got another snort. And I know about walmart too, everyplace we go that we have never been before, she has to go to walmart. No wonder I drink more than I should.

"I deserve these bourbons"

Daughter had a job interview with a major prestigious university yesterday. I woke up this morning, went for a walk on the golf course, wife went on a photo-shoot this morning. Plan to spend the afternoon with her.

Tough week at work, I deserve these bourbons

Pre-breakfast tasting of PHC 2010 and PVW 15 with my Starbucks French Roast.

Life is good.

I have a great idea. Walmart should open a bar in the store. That way the men folk can go have a snort while the little ladies shop.:cool:
