Merry Christmas! And Be Safe......

I was about to post my traditional Christmas post, just pics that are (in)appropriate for the season, when this morning I was awakened to an email from long time reader "Big L" (who you can read about here)And I thought that it was a very timely reminder to those of you who might be planning on having a bit too much Christmas cheer today (or next week, celebrating the New Year).  So here is his story:


With Christmas upon us, I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.

As you know, some of us have been known to have brushes with  the authorities from time to time, often on the way home after a "social session" with family or friends. Well, two days ago, Sat. night , this happened to me. I  was out for an evening with friends  and had a couple Martinis followed  by a couple of bottles of rather nice red wine along with a wonderful dinner . Although  relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was slightly over the  limit.

That's when I did something I've never done before: I took a  taxi home.

Sure enough on the way there was a police roadblock but  since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without  incident.

This was a real surprise to me, because I had never driven a  taxi before. I don't know where I got it, and now that it's in my garage I  don't know what to do with it.

So,  anyway, if you want to borrow it give me a  call.

Merry  Christmas and be safe out  there…
