Top of JC's Mind

When I wrote about Just Jot It January on New Year’s Day, I said that I didn’t usually use the #JusJoJan prompts from Linda’s blog except for One-Liner Wednesdays and Stream of Consciousness Saturdays, but I decided to set aside what I had planned to post today in favor of Linda’s prompt, which was to write about your blog.

What blogger would ignore the chance to write about their own blog?

I started blogging after several friends suggested that I should. At the time, I was writing a lot of comments on articles about fracking as part of the fight against fracking in my home state of New York, our neighbor Pennsylvania, and in the US and around the world.

Dewar’s

Growing up my parents had a liquor cabinet. I grew up sneaking small nips from it and over the years my taste for scotch matured.

Once I even emptied my bottle of English Leather cologne and filled it with whisky, and whiskey, so I could have a small “pick me up” in the morning.

Who would know how much those habits can stick…

I never could shake the taste of chemical flavor from those quick bites. It wasn’t very good scotch at that point. But I still drank it.

I still love me a good glass. I assume I always will.
