Merry Christmas BP Pals Editor's Pick   Merry Christmas BP Pals
Merry Christmas BP Pals

Well, about this time of year, I usually take a moment to write a few letters to my good friends, the time when I remember all the good things and indulge myself to the extent of getting a little sentimental. It is a blustery evening, but here in my den it's cozy and comfortable. I'm sitting before a nice open fire with my computer, sort of looking at "Recent Entries" and slowly sipping a nice, very dry, double martini. I only wish you all were here. Since you are not, the least I can do is to toast your health, happiness and safety, so timeout old pals, while I bend my elbow to you. (Con'td)

    I just took time out to mix another martini and while I was out in the kitchen, I thought of all the time I would waste this evening if I went out to mix another drink every once in awhile, so I just made up a big picture of martinis and brought it back with me so I'd have it right here beside and wouldn't have to waiste time making more of them. So now I'm all set and here goes. Besides, martineas are a great drinkk. For some reason they never seem to affec me in the slightest. Can drink them
all dday long. Sew hear goes.

Dry Martini's = Drink for folks who just don't want to ask for a shot of Gin or Vodka. Eat the Olives on the side. I prefer Kettle One w/a drop of Lime juice and swished around a Metal Shaker a few times.

Like the DUI SANTA & REINDEER good choice on the BLK/out background.

Now here is a Texan who can hold his martoonies! :-) What bothers me is I was able to read the whole thing and I was not the one who greased your lens! But I might know who did...
Have a very Merry Christmas and a SAFE and healthy New Year Jim! :-)
