Yes indeed, on it's way. Now, if you check the PM from me, I've included the tracking info for delivery. I hope that this one makes it to you and your man.

Good heavens, dear boy. You have absolutely outdone yourself. Received as following:
5# of Carrabassett Columbia Supremo coffee (for the mornings after)
1 fifth of Cold River vodka
2 pints of Maine Beer Compnany`s finest

Mistah Willie's, you are truly the cat`s pajamas.

Thanks from the Geese...

I hopw that all exchanges have now been sorted out as I am de-"sticky"ing this thread.

Mondays. Meh... Not a fan. Not one bit.

As I headed to the office this morning, I was still shaking out the cobwebs of Saturdays gig which was 5 straight hours of banjo and an angel of a waitress who made sure the Jim Beam rocks glass behind me was freshly stocked w/ ice and bourbon. Every time I finished a tune, I turned around and there was fresh ice and more bourbon. It was like Groundhog Day for drunks. - Play a tune, turn around, BOURBON. Play a tune, turn around, BOURBON. for three straight sets...... The good news was that Irish, Cowboy, old-timey sing alongs w/ a side of bluegrass go better drenched in bourbon.

Anyhooter, back to Monday mornings. They suck.

Except, when somebody rings your phone to let you know that UPS just dropped off a box from South Dakota or someplace way west of here, and then you remember it's HBE season [and you suddenly feel guilty because you forgot to send your package which is going in the mail tomorrow] and then you duck out of a client meeting and head back to your office to find a big ass box and you open up the Buck Knife that your grandpa gave you which you keep in your desk drawer and cut that big ass box open to find it stuffed full of disposable diapers, which cause you to tilt your head to one side and wonder whether or not any of them are loaded diapers, but then you remember that it's HBE season and a drunkard probably sent you the box, so you dig through the diapers and find booze glorious booze. You find a box of Bird Dog Whiskey that has a selection of airplane bottles and a 5th of their fine whiskey and you also find a bottle of Ghost Town Red Wine from the Ghost Town Meadery and then you dig deeper into the box of diapers looking for a note or card so you know who to thank, but there's nothing and you smile and remember - a drunkard sent me this. Why on earth would he/she put a note in there....

So you do what any reasonable person would do on a Meh of a Monday, you grab some ice, crack open that box of Whiskey bottles and pour a stiff one b4 logging onto MDM to thank the mysterious Whiskey Fairy for sending you such an uplifting box-o-love on a Monday only to find out that said Fairy [Bluto] has not only PM'd you to warn you of the box AND then you realize he is not only a fan of brown liquor, but he is a huge proponent of alternative packing materials and anonymous booze shipping.

So many thanks, from the bottom of my liver to Bluto.

You, sir, are a Gem.

Cheers you magnificent bastard

Just a quick note to my, to currently remain nameless so as to preserve the surprise, HBE recipient - been takin' care of Ma a bit extra the last few weeks and now my time has been consumed with the wakes and funeral arrangements, attending the wakes - postponing the funeral 'cuz Ma is causing trouble even from Heaven with this snowstorm that every weather guy/gal is calling EPIC and/or HISTORIC, doing the program, writing her eulogy, etc. etc.

Wanted to let my HBE guy to know he hasn't participated in the HBE for naught - if some of my fellow experienced MDM'ers could back me up on this - this is why we give each other 'til mid-February to send each other HBE hooch. After that, it's still welcome - it's a delivery of hooch - but we just call it a birthday present. No, I don't care if it's April and your birthday is in November - if it's a late HBE delivery, then it's now a birthday present. Fuck you, just fuckin' drink it.

I'm told two our participants have yet to receive any boozey, deliscious gifts. Time to get them shipped folks or you'll be called out!

Indeed, I have, my good friend NYD, I have indeed, been fuckin' drinking it. Well, some of it. This is gift has to be savored.



I apologize for not posting this earlier. I think that I must have had some black rum in my eye or something. No worries, it makes everything much clearer.

Here is what arrived form the post office, on my front door step, from you. Three large containers of hidden delight. What could be inside these giant boxes,all three?

Image


Two magnificent Gins, three types of olives, two types of lovely vermouth, and the angostura bitters, with or without, and, get this, a friggin' mix set, with intelligent design on the Martini glasses. No breaky break-break of stems.

Math: 2 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 8.

The possible variations are this: 8 x (8-1) x (8-2) x (8-3) x (8-4) x (8-5) x (8-6) x (8-7) different concoctions. 8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1 = 40,320.

Therefore, this means that there are 40,320 different combinations, varying from all of the ingredients all at once, down to each, on its own.


Image


A wonderful surprise in the dark of the angry beast of winter in these northern climes, and warmth from the bosom of a lovely Lady who truly knows how to gift a fellow Modern Drunkard.


Well met, indeed, me fine lass. I hope that I get you next year. I will do you up proud, as well.



I'll paint my wagon red, and paint the town as well, my dear.


Exploration awaits. This will be fucking epic.

Now that I have climbed back aboard this fine vessel, there will be a thread for such a marvelous adventure, me fine lass.

Yes indeed.

So did anyone get shafted in this HBE? I absolutely hope not, as it was the first that wasn't hosted by our fearless leader Tony Mayhem. He worked so hard to be sure that the exchange went as planned, and he was militant about those who might not meet their obligations!!

I will right this wrong.
