Tuesday already?


Wandering down the stairs this morning, caught this sunrise glimpse through one of our few unbroken lead light windows. Such a pretty sight to greet me, before the wind whipped up some silt and dust (note to self, make sure the undies and sheets are well-shaken before use, it's the little things that make your day isn't it!)

Tequila Sunrise
1 and 1/2 ounces white tequila
Orange juice for topping up
1/2 slice orange
3/4 ounce Grenadine

Pour the Tequila and orange juice together into a highball glass (over ice). Float the slice of orange on top of the drink and pour the grenadine on top. Serve with a stirrer stick.

OMG... she's back, with a bottle !

Things must be looking up.

Just remember, I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy...

May your tequila sunrise be bright with grenadine.

Browen- early bird, that means you get the clean glass!

I was thinking is it too early in the day or just a very late night... and then I figured: what does it matter?

Does this mean I've made it into your drink's club?

Steve, you can have this jam jar (it's pretty clean really...)

I always shake out my undies first thing in the morning just in case there's any loose change tucked away in them.

Anyway wasn't that the problem, they were too well shaken in the first place.

Sorry Sajjy – where was I ? Oh yes…Tequila Sunrises. I still wake up to one of those most mornings. All I have to do is reach down inside my underwear, and there it is all hot and ready for me. All I gotta do is pour in the ice and a few seconds later I’m truly wide awake and ready to face a whole new day.

Unless I’m out of ice.

Dear Phil, you say the sweetest thongs. You can shake my frillies anytime. Sunset or Sunrise.

Sorry about that TS but I felt a response was in order.

Yours M

Well I've missed the sunrise and things have certainly gotten out of hand in a hurry around here. For once, neither our BrOwen nor I were the ones twirling our stir sticks in the brew and causing a commotion.
I had the foresight to bring my thermos with me...just fill'er up, will you? Ta.

“Ohhh Whaaatttt! Now look what you gone dun to me Margee baby. You just dun gone made me spill my ‘Tequilla Sunrise’ all over my lap!!”

Yawns – Falls straight to sleep – Snores.





End of ‘mere mans’ day.

That stained glass window is gorgeous, Saj! Thank God it was saved! Sounds like you're still shaking out and trying to get up from down under...
Nice cocktail! Sounds like we could have it at breakfast!
Take care, Saj, with love.

Decades since last I had a Tequila. Memories. Thank you.
