The past few years I've noticed that after a session with the chain saw and maul I feel like I've gotten run over by a truck. A taste of whisky or two usually helps settle things later that evening.
I was up in Sullivan County this past weekend, can't say I was amazed I had to snowblow the surprise 7" at the grans house on Saturday...got into his Buds after that....

Recently changed my go to winter favorite Bourbon from Knob Creek to Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Very Small Batch. If you like Bourbon this is one worth trying.

hi woodey have you tried michters or rabbit hole? both top notch. the only unfortunate thing about cold and burning the stove is it's too cold to burn the fireplace. my stove has no glass and they didn't make one.

If you like that flavor profile, I suggest Buffalo Trace as well. Affordable too.

Small town with only 2 liquor stores, both said Buffalo was hard for them to get and was gone quickly upon arrival.

Checked out their website the other day and it said that they were undergoing renovations at the distillery and some whiskeys may be in short supply temporarily but I didn’t look to see what date that was posted.

Got a new-to-us cat last week from a friend. He's settling in nicely and is a very chill dude. The only problem is that he likes a dram before bedtime and only the good stuff.

Our beautiful boy is gone. He was killed by a hit and run driver right in front of the house. Never stopped. 2022 is off to a really crappy start.

I'm sorry, begreen. Not even stopping to apologize - it's inconceivable.

I hope the year will only slowly go up from here.

Rereading begreen s post, I hope.my interpretation that it was a cat (because of the post above it) was right.

If not, then I sincerely apologize. A cat is truly bad; they are part of the family. The other thing that is on my mind is unmentionably bad.
