    Default Moonshine anyone?

    A gift from a coworker whom I helped out recently. Some of her Uncle's shine from North Carolina. What better glass to serve a backwoods spirit in other than a Waldorf Crystal Glass.

    For anyone who watches "Scandal" these are the glasses that the president drinks his Scotch out of. An anniversary gift from my better half.

    Yes, I shaved before I drank. McPherson Bros provided a 2 pass BBS as always.

    I no longer partake, but I remember having a stash of my uncles brew from northern Saskatchewan and a little of my own west coast tobacco out on the balcony of my house overlooking the river. It was a great evening. I am glad to have that memory. Thanks for the reminder.

    Nothing quite as nice as "real" Mountain Dew. I've heard it's illegal. LOL

    Last time I had Shine was in 1965 at Fort Polk, Louisiana. We got a Saturday and Sunday pass at the end of Army basic training. We stopped a cab driver off base and lo and behold
    his trunk was full of quart mason jars at $1.50 a jar. None of us could recall much of the weekend starting about 2 hours post purchase. : )

    When I was in San Diego in '71 for boot camp at the Navel Training Center, one of the guys in my company's name was Michel Clements and he was from Hazard KY.

    Anyway Mike was talking about his dad making some fine shine and the 'city' guys laughed at him! The said that was only in the movies!

    Hell I'd had shine as the boys from TN who came out for pea harvest with Green Giant Co always brought some so I didn't doubt Mike in the least.

    Well their remarks p***ed Mike off so Mike wrote home and his dad sent Polaroid pictures of the propane powered still in their basement. I can still hear Mike say; "You call me a liar? My daddy makes some fine shine"!

    When the TV show the Dukes of Hazard came out my first thoughts were of Mike!

    True stories are always the best ones!

    I guess I got the wrong cab driver, didn't have no shine but he was able to find trouble for us. Tc

    All the folk around here manufacture that white lightning. Cousin Billy likes to spike the drinking hole where the Elk drink with the stuff and when they are falling down drunk and sleeping it off he just runs up to them and clubs them to death. Cousin jethro tried that with a Grizzly bear but the bear liked it so much he wanted more and jethro ran out so the bear chased him for miles.

    This is making me thirsty.

    The last time I got really plastered on some of that good 'ole TN 'shine was several years ago a buddy of mine and I were going to a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert at Starwood Amphitheater in Nashville. We killed a quart before we went inside, I had a pair of binoculars so I could see the stage better but had to close one eye to focus and that didn't help much. I don't recall who drove home but it was the middle of the week which meant I had to be at work the next day. Got home around 2:00 am (I think) and had to be at work at 8:00 am. Well, I got a couple hours sleep but needless to say I was as drunk when I went to work as I was when I left the concert, finally got sober about an hour or so before quitting time..........those were the good 'ole days!
