Thirsty Thursday 1/19/11

Yes, I am a day late. I know. And yes, I'm hanging my head in shame. I'm just still excited about that big ole tumbleweed that blew threw here the other day!

Today I have brought with me a few drinks that is easily available out here in the high country of the West Texas Mountains. Granted, alcohol costs at least twice as much here than any where else. Last time I was in Austin I picked up a gallon bottle of Red Stag for 25.00 while I can buy a litter here for the same price. BIG ouch on the pocket book so we've learned to stock up. Last trip I bought 2 gallons! ;-)
