TVD's Weekend Shots

Maybe it's the high gas prices or that turntables aren't on wheels, but I'm hearing a-plenty about "staycations" -- a vacation that's spent at one's home enjoying all that home and one's home environs have to offer. So, as a public service, TVD hereby presents two ingredients to enliven your "holistay" ...

Classic Rum & Coke:
5.0 oz. Cola
2.0 oz. Light Rum
Directions: Fill a Highball glass almost full with ice cubes. Pour Rum and Coke into the Highball glass. Stir well, garnish with a Lemon Wedge, umbrella, and serve til morning.

...and these, your Saturday into Sunday Soundtrack.

Forgive me ... I am sleepwalking.
I am jangling along to some song of the moment,
suffering it's sweetness,
luxuriating in it's feeble aproximation of starlight.
Meanwhile there is a real world ...
trains are late, doctors are breaking bad news,
but I am living in a lullaby.
