With office politics at the clinic getting out of hand, I called my old employer back.

Softening up the ground for a possible return. They told me they closed the homeless clinic! For good!

I suppose it should make me feel indispensable or something. But it just made me sad. I feel like I abandoned my homeless patients.

Anyway, I’m on firmer ground now with the office politics at my new place. Holding on until I get my primary care position at the new clinic. I’ve stopped looking elsewhere for the time-being.

Weekend. One day of work. Next two days off. I'm liking it!

Enjoying a gin sling on a Monday night.

I love you all…

June 16, 2024

Enjoying a Delmonico tonight.

Gin, cognac, dry & sweet vermouth, and a couple of dashes of Angostura bitters.


Hope everyone is having a good weekend…

Friday Night Gin Buzz. Ask me anything.

Enjoying a Chelsea Sidecar tonight. Gin, Cointreau, and lemon juice.

Monstrously busy day today. Need to unwind. Looking forward to the weekend.

I love you all…

Enjoying a Casablanca tonight.

Rum, Cointreau, lime juice, and grenadine. A sweet, warm-weather libation. There will be more summer cocktails in my future. Gin and tonic, vodka and tonic, and so on.

I need fortification to get through the hell of summer, until my lovely gray, cloudy, cold, rainy weather returns again…

Friday Night Rum Buzz. Ask me anything.

Spectacularly busy day in clinic today. I’m thrashed.

Enjoying a Rum Devil tonight. Basically a rum Martini. Rum, dry vermouth, and a black olive garnish. I dropped in a quarter ounce of the new mango vodka I just bought. Yummy!

Trying to unwind…

I love you all…

Enjoying a Lion's Tail tonight.

Bourbon, lime juice, Allspice dram, simple syrup, and two dashes of Angostura bitters. I don’t have Allspice dram (I wouldn’t even know where to get it), so I substituted Drambui.

Shaken with ice and then strained into a chilled coupe glass.

Friday Night Rum Buzz. Ask me anything.

Two shots of vodka to get the party started, (and to finish off the bottle ) and now Tiger’s Milk; rum, brandy, half-and-half, and sugar, with a sprinkling of nutmeg.

Hope everyone is looking forward to a great weekend.

I love you all…

Trump supporters? Me again. How's this: Same charges, same judge, same jury, same verdict.

But it's Hillary Clinton. What say you now?

Yeah... ...that's what I thought...

To any lurking Trump supporters: Quit crying. You got what you wanted.

Hillary Clinton didn’t get to be President. Hillary Clinton will never be President. She took the loss so hard, she retired from public life.

That was what you wanted. You wanted it so bad, you voted for a sleazy real estate salesman who never saw a law he didn’t want to break. A squalid, unsavory scofflaw who squandered an inherited fortune, and has lived on borrowed money ever since.

You knew what you were voting for. You knew what you were getting. You encouraged his crass, boorish behavior, and he delivered.

How could you not think there would be a price to pay?

You got what you wanted. Hillary Clinton will never be President. Take that win and shut the fuck up.
