Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. I was trying to use up some of my credit card points and I was really struggling with what to use them for, since most of the items presented…at least at my point level… are not exactly barn-burners...if you get my drift. However, I did come across an interesting item that I thought would be fun to have…a Brandy warmer. Now I am not big on drinking, but one night I was at the bar waiting for the rest of the dinner participants to show and I thought I would have something other than a glass of wine, and decided to try a Brandy. The bartender then asked me if I wanted it in a warm glass. I was not sure why he asked that, but I quickly discovered that the warmth created a very heady aroma. Actually, I have come to prefer the smell versus the actual drink itself. Now I own a Brandy warmer and I am afraid to use it. The warmer comes with a nice metal stand, on which sits a big globe glass that is tilted at an angle, and in the base is a small votive candle. The glass globe is paper thin and I am afraid the heat from the candle might crack the glass, allowing the alcohol, which is highly flammable, to spill out over my counter top with very undesirable results. A bit too much warmth for me. So there it sits. Maybe I will try it out while it sits in my bathtub. Might work.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

The minister gave his Sunday morning service as usual, but this particular Sunday, it was considerably longer than normal. Later, at the door, shaking hands with parishioners as they moved out, one man said, “Your sermon, Pastor, was simply wonderful - so invigorating and inspiring and refreshing.” The minister of course, broke out in a big smile, only to hear the man add, “Why I felt like a new man when I woke
Two elderly men went into the pro shop after playing 18 holes of golf. The pro asked, “Did you have a good game?” “Yes,” the first old man replied, “I had five riders today.” The second man added, “I had seven riders. My best ever in a long time.” After the old men left another golfer approached the pro and said, “I have played golf for 15 years and I have never heard the term ‘rider.’ What does that mean?” “It means when you hit the ball far enough to get in the golf cart and ride to it.”
I need to stop now and find my fire extinguisher…you know…just in case. As always, be good, play safe, and remember to always consider your actions ahead of time.
