Memoirs from the All Florida Meet

Memoirs from the All Florida Meet

 

I survived.

 

 

 

Lola excelled.

 

 

 

 

Ruby flew through it.

 

 

 

 

 

And Violet hates me……..

 

 

 

 

There were so many exciting times, exhilarating runs, fresh disasters, good food, rivers of champagne, and better than mediocre bourbon.

Let’s not over-look the variety of flasks that would appear out of nowhere with sudden and surprising regularity.

They would sprout from Hunt jacket pockets, saddlebags, and inside vest pockets.

The recipes varied.  They ALL had to be sampled………..and revisited…………..and revisited again and again.

(I’ve even had D-rings put on the left side of my saddle as well as the right…………..just so that I can attach a second saddlebag……………so that I can carry an additional flask.

But being a two-fisted-flask rider is no big deal.  Another veteran of our Hunt has four engraved flasks.  Hunt Flask #1.  Hunt Flask #2.  Hunt Flask #3.  And of course, Hunt Flask #4.

She even bought another flask today, just so she can fill it and have it for Lola……………because Lola takes a flask……………and doesn’t give it back……………..until it’s empty.

 

 

I had stiff Black Russians in one and Nutella Liqueur (home-made) with vodka in the other.

Just the flask recipes alone are enough to write on and on and on about.

Some are incredible concoctions, some (sometimes me) are just mediocre bourbon, some are fruity, while others are spicy.

 

 

 

 

I borrowed a book I gave to my husband, which has been passed around the Hunt at the various Teas.

It’s called “The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog Drinks Manual”.  I recommend it for leisure reading and GREAT flask recipes!

OMG,  OMG,  OMG,  OMG……………………..THIS IS ALL JUST SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!

I need another nap……………………….we Hunt again tomorrow……………………..just the regular Club Hunt…………………..

But I still need another nap.
