A Couple of Old Friends Dropped By Today

A couple of old friends from Europe dropped by this evening.  It had been a while, we haven't seen each other since before Jillian and I were married - possibly even before we started dating in the late Noughts.

I've truly missed these old, dear friends.  It was a heartwarming reunion for the three of us, and now that they're back in my life, we'll always be in touch.

The only two things I miss from my bachelor days are cocktails and cigars, and with Autumn a little under a month away, it's time I cleared a path to my liquor cabinet.

It's been a while since my cocktail heyday, and I am terribly out of practice.  If it weren't for muscle memory, I don't think that Martini I made around Christmas would have turned out at all.  Worse still, I couldn't remember my signature Martini recipe... the same recipe I used thrice daily for several years!  This is not good.  Not good at all.

Hell, when I went to have a little Pernod this afternoon, I realized I didn't have the glassware anymore!  A most of my barware was broken when we moved to Westdale in 2015, so I was forced to use a generic glass tumbler.  So uncouth!  Suffice it to say, this next payday, I'll be buying a cheap set of glassware (Hiball glasses, tumblers, etc) from Wal-Mart until I'm able to invest in a quality set.

(My Martini glasses were in a separate box, and survived the move.)

Anyhow, time to take stock.  Do any of you know where in Winnipeg I can buy soda bulbs/chargers for my soda siphon?  I've tried a few Wal-marts, Canadian Tires, and Superstores, but none have stock.  I'd rather buy local than order online...
