    This afternoon, I slipped into my local liquor store (where I almost never go) to pick up a bottle or two of my favorite bourbon, Old Weller's 107 without which no holiday is quite complete, and discovered they no longer carried it for some reason.

    But while I was there, I almost howled when I discovered they had one bottle of J R Ewing Bourbon for about $30 --- I inquired as to why they still had it and whether or not it was any good. One of the staff said they'd come out with it a couple of years ago, and I realized that, of course, it was in connection to TNT's nuDALLAS.

    I still bought a comparably priced bottle of Jack Daniels' instead, because it was the more reliable purchase. But, still, what a giggle.

    I'd have bought it just to drive my friends crazy by constantly saying,

    "Bourbon and Branch, Dora Mae.
    I'll take it at my usual table."

    I bought two bottles when they were available for a very short time here in Holland. One to keep as a collectible, one to drink. Both are still sealed, though.
