After the holiday luncheon mentioned last post, I stayed around, cleaned up some paperwork, then had some gentlemen over for the winter solstice Scotch tasting. One of the guys goes hunting (grew up old style Quebec) and brought some caribou rillette that he’d hunted the caribou. I have mixed feelings about hunting. Grew up big-city-hunters-kill-bambi, but I eat meat, and can’t see anything wrong with it as long as you eat what you kill. Anyhow, except for not having cigars, my solstice Scotch tastings with a small group of friends is the one old style, gentlemanly get together that I do. (No cigars, but maybe will add next year, even if none of us actually do smoke.)

Trophy hunting bothers me, but, where I grew up, over half the families hunted. Venison sausage is tasty!

Venison itself it not the easiest meat to cook, though.

The Scotch tasting sounds wonderful.

Never drank Scotch, was the one alcoholic beverage I didn't like, until my son turned me on to GOOD Scotch. Alas, my conscience won't let me still smoke cigars, even though as St. Rudyard reminded us "a good cigar is a smoke!"

Some years back, we had some celebration at WWC's house w/ the parental units - can't recall if anniversary, birthday, etc. - my old friend Larry Hama dropped by for dessert, and WWC had recently been to Cuba for some sort of medical convention and brought back Cuban cigars; we went out on her front porch to smoke them, huddled around like junior high school kids sneaking a smoke in the corner of the playground.

She used to buy me cheap cigars, (cigarillos?) and She and I would sit on the front "porch" and I'd have one while She smoked her normal cigarettes. She'd get me expensive cigars too, but just as we liked inexpensive saki more than expensive I was just about as happy with the cheap ones.
