MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Oh wait ... it's not Thanksgiving yet, even though Michaels and Hobby Lobby were selling decorations before halloween!! Yup ... I'm one of those diehard decorate everything and do it early people so you have plenty of time to enjoy it.
I used to decorate a tree every year until Cooper came along and thought it was the perfect hiding place for his ball. Every day ... six times a day ... I would be rearranging the tree skirt (on my hands and knees) and picking up decorations off the floor. I finally gave up.
This time of year the Elks Lodge has their famous Fizz Brunch. I don't know about you, but a gin fizz is not on my list of drinkable concoctions. I wasn't there to partake however, I was there to serve everyone at their tables. It began slowly, but in the blink of an eye we were slammed. It was the biggest crowd they have ever had.
You can only get about five pours out of the pitcher you see here. Those cups were akin to red solos. After a couple of drops here and there, I put a diaper on the pitcher ... a small white towel to catch the drips. I guess many had not seen that before because I got lots of comments. It's amazing the things you can remember that you learned back in the early 70's when you were slinging hash!!
I'm sure we went through well over 75 pitchers of punch. Turns out this variety had vodka, so they were oh so popular. Honestly, I've never seen people drink so much!!! It was all good though because breakfast was forthcoming, at which time the fizzes came to a halt ... more or less. By the way, this is the King from Bingo!!
