    Re: Got a Flask?

    Very cool flasks BJ, but I couldn't find one for Knob Lick Polytechnical University listed. Wonder if they make one for the Fighting Roadkills?

    I've heard of them. That's the team from the Gravel Switch Institute of Culinary Arts...
    They're a pretty small school, so that's probably a special order

    Why yessur, it is...
    Penn's Store
    When I was a kid, we'd all pile in the car and 'go to the country' to visit. We went to Gravel Switch...
    Merry Christmas to you and Patty!

    Penn's Store reminds me of some of the country stores I used to see when I was growing up. My dad and I would go fishing somewhere on Saturday afternoons and almost always there was a country store that we could stop at for a cold drink. I particularly remember the country store in Jewett MO where you crossed the St Francis river on highway C that was cut back into a bluff. The whole parking lot seemed to be paved with rusted bottle caps. Sadly, none of those old stores exist anymore in that part of the world except for a couple on highway 67 south of Fredericktown MO. The rest are only fond memories.

    Warning: Flying with a Flask.

    Over New Year's, my brother was travelling internationally with a full flask of Old Grand-Dad BIB in his carry-on luggage. The TSA made him dump it out. He offered to chug it but they said no.

    What price security!?!

    Chris,

    'Cause then they wouldn't get to sell him JB white for $8 a shot...
    I mean think about it. What sort of security risk would a full flask of Bourbon present? Can't you see the hijacker now...screaming instructions and waving his flask?
    Making a man pour out his Bourbon is just plain criminal...

    I suppose the worry is over flammable liquids. A would-be hijacker might substitute gasoline or something more insidious for the Old Granddad. But you're right--once they got a whiff of what it was, they should have left him alone. I'd be like "here......see, it's harmless!"

    I guess I'm a 'rules-is-rules' kind of guy, but -- even pre-9/11, the airlines didn't allow anyone (at least, not knowingly -- it's written in the ticket document) to bring their own beer/wine/alcohol on board for consumption on the plane. They used to let you carry sealed containers -- e.g., wine bottles in your carry-on, but didn't allow you to open it. That's not to say there aren't people who've done it -- but it's long been against the rules. So, the only thing new about this policy is its enforcement.
