Happy December! We had some sparkly green absinthe at Thanksgiving, which looks gorgeous for this time of year. And because it will mercifully put you under, it is just about the perfect liquor for the season. This is sort of turning into a photo blog here lately, isn't it? Oh well. These pictures are all by Marilyn, who has not only a nicer camera but also more talent/patience than I. Steve got this bottle from a co-worker who picked it up in the Czech Republic. He gave it to me before they moved away to have a baby and be responsible adults; it seemed appropriate to break it out to celebrate their visit back down here.
