Happy Birthday Cocktail to Me!


Yes, once more into that breach we call a Birthday. This time I came out the other side 70 years old. (Yeah, how about that? A senior citizen who's not tech illiterate. In fact, I was building computers and writing code before most of you had slid out the birth canal!)

I don't know how I got this old - this fast - but today I'm not going to think about that. I'm just going to Eat, Drink and Be Merry and open all my Amazon birthday gifts I sent myself.

P.S. It is also Bailey's and my 5th Anniversary.

HOT (Spiked) LEMONADE RECIPES


Once upon a time, when I was a child back in the Midwest, whenever one of us kids sneezed or coughed, my mother used to give us hot lemonade. She claimed it would ward off all nature of pestilence and ills plus warm us right down to our bones. One sneeze, one sniffle and out came Mom's old hand juicer and the jar of honey while another unsnuffling sibling was shooed off to the corner market for lemons.

No skin off my offending, sneezing nose, I absolutely LOVED hot lemonade. I still do. Only now I add some spirits because that's how I adult when making hot lemonade!
