    An "I deserve this" Bourbon?

    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... )

    Re: An "I deserve this" Bourbon?

    LOL Mat. 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. I've been treating myself to some Pappy 15 throughout the day. 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!

    Re: An "I deserve this" Bourbon?

    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!

    Re: An "I deserve this" Bourbon?

    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.
