My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      Cuba Libres were my drink for over 40 years but I’ve stopped drinking Coke so I switched to Gin and Tonic. I bought the rompope on a whim a few weeks ago and the Kahlua.. Then discovered another 1/2 bottle guests had left in the back of the liquor cabinet so feel compelled to use up at least the 1/2 bottle in my campaign to clear out and organize. Tough job but somebody has to do it….

        I think that I drank the first Cuba Lebre in Havana in the middle 50’s when Castro was advancing on the city. I was there negotiating the sale of a boat we had on the Isle of pines, now called “Isla de la juventud”. They paid for it with new sequentially numbered hundred dollar bills placed in a suitcase. I continued on to Panama but the VP who was with me then returned to San Antonio with that suit case full of money. I have often wondered how that money got into the hands of “The Movement”. (I think that I know~!) Bet he had to change his underclothes before he got home, he was taking a real chance.

        Then, like you, I drank them for years but have not had a coke in a very long times either, or any other pop. Sense I learned that it made good metal cleaner. I had my first margarita in Juarez when it was almost unknown in the U.S. Back then a Martini was “the drink”. I too like a good gin and tonic, but when I have not been sleeping well, I do have an old fashion before going to bed. Do you know about Southern Comfort~? you need nothing else but ice, and a twist, the stronger is only 80Proof, Iced down it is about right, there is a 60P for the ladies~! Almost better than Crown Royal~!

        I almost never drink a beer and I otherwise rarely drink anything when alone. But learned to drink good bottle of wine with good food, even fish~! I often drank aguardient, poulkie (sic?) in South America and in North Africa and France I sometime had Recard, but that stuff will kill you as the widows of several friends will tell you. It sounds like I am a real drinker, but I am not, Just remembering my wild years.

        Funny side thought, Shirley had never had much alcohol before she met me. I quickly found out that with one martini she got real sexy, but with the second one she went to sleep~!

          VP of what? If you like gin, you must try the new Tanqueray 10. Worth the extra $$$$. As for Pulque, I once did a retablo the theme of which was the 400 drunken rabbit gods of pulque.

            Aguardiente is my comparison to Pulque and it is made in Colombia. To me it taste the same, acts the same and is usually drank the same. However while Pulque is made from agave, aguardiente is a re-distilled rum, very strong as is Recard. The usual place we imbibed in this was out in the boonies in a hut with only a grass roof and no walls. In other countries it might even be called a red light district. Salt is put between the thumb and first finger, a wedge of Lime is held in the same hand, the drink in the other. They lick the salt, pop the drink down, then suck on the lime. The “ladies” had another step, or way to drink it, they then turned and spit arching out of the shack. A good past time we had would be to have a spitting contest with them…..some of them could spit ten feet~! Writing about this I am reminded of something for a poem (as usual) I will try to put it together. Got to stop, I am starting to make errors, it is past my bed time~! and Tami is asleep on the chair next to me…She never leaves my side. It has been a beautiful day and we had long walks.

            Oh the VP was W. Lee Moore VP of marine exploration, fine man and as usual if there was an interesting place to go, they usually got to do it, I did interpretation and field management, he did business~!! Can’t complain, I had a great life, and in later years I too came into and worked out of the home office.
