Al -Back at you! No Anniversary Ball for me tonight. But I will cook the bride and I some steak and eggs (a nice thick juicy New York cut, 1st beef other than an occasional burger or pasta bolognese all year). And wash it down with a brew or two.Birthday Message
Gentlemen-Happy Birthday to the Marine Corps . . .
They say it's your birthday ..... so Happy birthday to you/us.mike, where do you go to a Ball, if you do go?I had a bottle of Coppola Claret (the wine of choice at Lord Chelmsford's O Mess at Ishandlwana). Tommorrow, a fucked up Ball story I read in the Marine Times
Eddie -Not really a Ball, just a small collection of old reprobates and ladies getting together to reminisce and lie about old times. This year they are holding it at a local Legion Hall so I am passing. Plus Mrs Mike and I are getting too old for it. In the past they have gotten together at various restaurants, a KofC hall, and even a golf course country club.Speaking of which (golf courses), isn't claret also a favorite at St Andrews and other British links. Mind you do not get the gout. Or is that from Port wine?
mike-Certainly not from Port! Must be Sherry . . .
