Well, come on. Where can we get some?

At Arnaud's French 75 in New Orleans with "Edith Piaf in the background." There must be other places we well. I know I said this is a "neat piece" but it can be enjoyed on the rocks as well.

Get this: I actually had drinks one night with the fellow who imports the Creme de Violette. I was researching a story about nocino, a version of which he imports as well. Anyway, my story didn't go any where but I did get to sample the goods and they were good.

PS. And I've seen the Creme de Violette at my favorite shop, Chambers Street Wines, in NYC and on line, and also at Astor Place wines. I think it's pricey but one bottle will probably last a long time.

I wonder if they have it at the Wine & Spirits Shoppe by the Walmart in Shrewsbury PA? Probably next to the peppermint schnapps...

BTW, Stacey, since you mention nocino, I haven't forgotten about the walnuts. I think you have to pick them in June, but I'll keep my eye on them.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
