I gave Bitter a hard time for drinking her champagne out of a beer glass, but when we celebrate, we celebrate big.
You will notice that we are using founding father glassware, if you zoom in to the full picture.Â My glass is a Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello snifter, and Bitter’s is a James Madison beer glass.Â I think both gentlemen would be proud that we have not completely forgotten them, and the instrument they created.
In addition to the drinks, Bitter prepared a lovely Italian dinner, in honor of Justice Scalia, complete with cannollis.Â I honor Justice Kennedy merely by being Irish.Â For Chief Justice Roberts, the last new shooter I took to the range was a Roberts.Â And for Justice Alito, well, he’s another Italian! I’m still trying to figure out how I honor Justice Thomas.

By buying a Corvette? Rumor has it he loves ’em.
Uhh… have a Coke?
Well, Anita Hill taught at OU, and I’m a diehard Sooner. Though I don’t know if that really honors him…
I’m totally on board with the Corvette. My dad was a Corvette guy. I almost inherited his until I realized it didn’t run. At 16, I didn’t have the desire, money, or knowledge to try and have it repaired.
Was the food from Northern Italy or Southern Italy?
Italian-American… just like Scalia :)
I so wasn’t going there…
ah, my kind of style and class. any place i can buy that beer glass online?
Don’t know. We got it from the Montpelier gift shop, in Virginia.
Sheesh, no wonder you got a headache, I can’t do bourbon – but I thought it was gonna be Tequila, or was that a suggestion to Helmke for drowning the Heller-sorrows? Too many blogs going-off like fireworks yesterday. I drank a few Red Stripes and had some Barbancourt.
As for Corvettes talk to RideFast – IMO they’re a lotta work since in many cases, no two consecutive years shared common parts.
Oh carp, I didn’t scroll down far enough! ;-)
