    It\'s a sickness!

    Well, I think I've got some sort of disease. I seem to be buying bourbon faster than I can drink it. On top of my standard stash, I got three new bottles from my wife for my birthday. That spurred me on, and I have just now picked up three MORE bottles: Rock Hill Farms, Elmer T. Lee and Old Forrester 100 proof.

    Is there any cure? Does it slow down once you've tried most of the available bourbons? I just keep wanting to try "one more" new bourbon.

    Is there any cure?
    As with any addiction you've got to worry about the "enablers." And one problem is that 100% of the participants in this forum are enablers.

    But in any event, could you please give your wife this message. My birthday is on September 15th.

    Thank you.

    Don't worry -- you can always bring them to the Gazebo for the Sampler (April) or Festival (September), and they'll be gone in no time. Call it the 12-step process (it's about 12 steps from the General Nelson parking lot to their Gazebo!).

    The top picture is very pretty. It would be nice to set that as wallpaper on the computer.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    such a sweet sickness that I share with so many others. enablers, what are those? Tomorrow for my 15 1/2 year old daughter's driving lession we will be going from Batavia,OH to the Party Source in Bellview,Ky and back. So how deep in the sickness are we? Oh well, back to my treatment.
