Hey Bruce
Of course only for medicinal purposes:
Pusser's Painkiller straight from St Thomas
2 oz Pussers Rum 95 proof (Baccardi 100 works too)
4 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1 oz coconut cream
Shake with ice.  Strain into a metal mug if you have one.
Garnish with nutmeg.
Enjoy your medicine.;-)

I'll take some of that medicine with my kettle corn.  Just give me half the normal amount of rum.   ;) 16
I believe you are given choices in life and it is not what has happened to you that defines who you are.  It is how you handle the situation and finding the positive in an almost hopeless situation that counts the most.  My son is my hero and I have had the pleasure of learning this from him.

Nancy~

I would LOVE to stop & get you -- think how much fun we would have!!  ...and maybe by then I, too, will have a new smile!  (However, I just got off the phone w/ the insurance company and they said that he was out-of network <hello, i am in Texas and he is in Maryland> so I'm a little frustrated -- I'll keep at it -- it will just take more legwork...& more papers to fill out!!)
