S'Official. I've Moved Out Onto The Porch And The Western Lilacs Are In Bloom

I have yellow and white dafodils on my table; my 9.5 yo son (your grandson is ALMOST as wonderful as my son) cut them for me at my request so we could enjoy them.

My tulips are not blooming yet (central Indiana), but I am ready for them. The neighbor's giant lilac is budding, but no blooms yet. The tulip trees and dogwoods are great, but somehow I think I missed the redbuds blooming.

I envy you your porch . . .

Hecate,

I thought I read in one of your recent posts that you enjoy a good vodka (but I've searched the past month and haven't been able to find it).

If you do enjoy vodka, you might like to try this American-made Texas brand:

Here's a quote from an admirer of Tito's:

"Full disclosure. I have met Tito. I have toured his distillery and done a shot with him on separate occasions. That does nothing to discount the quality of his vodka. It is incredibly smooth, and one of the only vodkas I will drink straight. The advantage is it is about half the price of the other vodkas I consider in its class."

"Tito’s won the double gold medal at the World Spirits Competition over 71 other vodkas after merely mailing a few bottles to the contest. A double gold is only presented when the spirit in question is the unanimous judges’ choice."

Here are a couple of reviews:
