    Going Shopping

    It's my birthday today and my wonderful wife surprised me this morning. While having my coffee she asked me if I wanted to go to Everett's to pick out something for my birthday. Everett's is a liquor store about 25 miles away, and it's the closest store to us that has a really good selection of bourbon. This is surprising because my wife's been on me a little bit about all the bourbon I've been buying/trying lately. So, as one not to look a gift horse in the mouth, "We're off to see the wizard." We're gonna hit another place too. Hopefully I'll post with some positive results later today. Joe

    So much to choose from and not enough money. Everett's had a lot more than I expected today. Had some tough choices. I ended up picking three. One's I didn't get but that are still on my list; VOF, OGD 114, ER 17, WLW, PVW20, Blanton's and Mitchener's. Of the three I purchased, I played it safe with a bottle of W.L. Weller Special Reserve. The other two are a little outside the norm for me. I went with these because I was surprised last week with the bottle of Bulleit I bought.(see my post on the BOTM thread) So without thinking about what I thought, and remembering a lot of comments from postings here at SB.com, I chose a bottle of FRSB, and the biggie (for me anyway), a bottle of GTS @144.8 proof. Wheeeeew! To semi-quote from the old Bartles And Jaymes commercials, "I (we) thank you for your support." You all are great, it sure is a fun ride. Thanks again. Joe

    PS Picked up the bottle of Weller Antique earlier this week.

    Happy Birthday, Joe!

    You made some really good selections.

    My birthday is coming up and I've dropped a number of hints that Wild Turkey American Spirit is readily available at my favorite store. (fingers crossed)

    Happy Birthday!
    Looks like you got some great bottles. The liquor stores here in Texas are closed on Sundays.
