Hi Lance! Maybe all that drinking's responsible for all those babies!

Once again, I'm jealous. I love having a cocktail in the middle of the day during vacation.

Poor me.


The two older women should recognize that one drink per child is a necessity.

Damn, I wasn't aware you could poison a fetus with alcohol outside the womb.

Being that I'm an old prepster (and Cape Cod summer resident myself) I'm going to go out on a limb here...I will bet anything you like that if we could positively ID those women they weren't "preppies" but yuppies, middle-class-moms, or what-have-you dressed up in their summer-at-the-Cape LLBean togs.

Having been raised by and around Preps of all ages, they INVENTED drinking because of children. Dear, if the sun *might* be over the yardarm somewhere we want a cocktail.

And, in memory of summers past, I'll have a lime rickey please!

(hey, I'm in Texas, anything sounds good that has shore-side associations)

I know and love that open air place, but it always seems to be closing by the time I have the opportunity to slip over there. It's a kind of misty Brigadoon in my memory because it's been so elusive.

But I heartily agree with Linkmeister that when on vacation, one drink per child chased around all day is about the right ratio.

Nick Kiddle

But... but... drinking is inherently evil. There's no difference between enjoying a half of beer once in a while and drinking to the point of unconsciousness every single night, and you wouldn't want someone with children to be passed-out-drunk, would you? Would you?
