    Mothers day

    Anyone happen to buy their wife or mother a nice bottle of bourbon today? Neither my wife or mother would appreciate that gift, but I know some out there who would.

    Re: Mothers day

    Neither my wife nor mother would go for that (but on the bright side, I don't worry about them drinking my bourbon!) My wife appreciates a pour on rare occasion (ironically, when I brought my ECBP home, she tried some and said "Wow - I like that. You only bought one bottle?", which I took for permission to buy as much as I could find

    I am with most here in the fact that neither my wife or mother would appreciate a gift of bourbon,but look ahead and a great gift to both opens the path ahead for when Fathers Day rolls around.......it's all circular in effect.

    My step-mother would love a case of beer today, but wouldn't appreciate the bourbon. If I gave my wife either, I'd be sleeping in the driveway for the forseeable future.

    I bought the wife a bottle of Four Roses Small Batch and she said that was for me not her. But I thought it was kind of funny so I think I will be buying her a bottle of Four Roses for each holiday now where gifts are given.

    Best regards, Tony

    Hey - if you get her THREE bottles . . . isn't that like a dozen roses, but better?
