First, OMG I miss Genny Cream Ale. That stuff's wonderful.

Second, I also find myself wondering sometimes how my particular grocery selections might strike a check-out clerk who's watched too many TV shows about criminal profilers.

Once I had parrot chow, milk, green onions, and potatoes. I nodded at the items and said to the clerk, "New casserole recipe." The stony look I got made wish I'd kept quiet.


Genny Cream was definitely better than your average beer. Camel cat, here. {sigh*cough*cough*sigh}

Then, thinking that over, I think, “Remember, Lance. Some days all it took to make your grandmother happy was a pack of Winstons and a glass of Genessee Cream Ale.”
Maybe true, but if the best part of waking up was really Folger's in your cup, death would become a very attractive alternative.

As far as the moral goes....truly, it is correct.


Genny Cream sucked, if it was in a can.

In a bottle?

Ambrosia. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

actor, always the bottle for my grandmother.

Ken, I hate to admit it, but somedays, it really is the best part of waking up for me...

I have to say this about my grandmother, she was a very active person. She had a career and she was involved with half a dozen charities. Actually, not just involved, she was usually one of the leaders of whatever group or cause she was working for. She earned her down time with her Gennys and her smokes.
