  • Tuesday, wrote a blog post, enjoyed some Facebook crack, Facetime chats with Dirk and Jacques, shopping outing to get supplies (drinks), Lynx estate to get wine, sunset podcast walk, made a white russian – the Dude abides.
  • Pro tip: in a good white russian, you can taste the vodka and the cream – I use mostly milk but I add a bit of cream.
