"...a sweet hello followed by a warm goodbye..."

That is exactly what I have been enjoying for the past 15 minutes or so. I had a craving for something sweet but my wife recently denuded the house of anything sweet because she had high glucose levels during a recent physical which I find hard to believe because at 58 she has the body of a 25 year old. I kid you not - it's because she is an exercise junkie.

Well anyway, I had a hankering for something sweet and I also needed an attitude adjustment. The only thing in the house that I could find, to achieve both a once, was something I had just bought tonight as a Christmas present for someone (but not for me) else. That something, for someone else, was a jar of Moonshine Cherries. Over the past quarter hour (maybe even 20 minutes) I gobbled down about half a jar's worth of the cherries and drank to moonshine down to a level to keep the remaining cherries just barely covered. I guess I have to buy another one for the Christmas present for that someone else.

So, what did that do for me. It sure was a sort of a sweet hello (at least what I could taste through the alcohol and that was good enough - man I love those cherries) and over the past few minutes or so it also has been one heck of a warm goodbye. I have been feeling a warmth I usually only feel in a sauna or in a hot car with the windows closed in the summertime in Calexico, CA (and that is warm as hell). Feels good though. As I am typing, it is finally hitting my head and giving me another sort of feeling - that kind of mellow that tells me I am well on my way to being snockered. Thing is, I am willing to bet, I don't need even one more of those cherries or the moonshine they are soaked in to windup drunk - just give me a few more minutes and I should be four sails to the wind.

Man oh man, I am eve so happy I cracked that mason jar open. The result, in addition to the sweet hello, the warmth, and the feeling snockered is that  - it has (at least temporarily) taken a big load off of my mind and that is a good thing because that particular load was pretty heavy.

All the best,
