notes from maggie's farm
|I might not find myself in Kentucky this weekend, I might not be the gambling kind, I might not have a grand hat to rest upon my farming-weary head. I may not have opera glasses with which to spy the goings-on in the crowd, as much as on the track. But, darnit, I can drink a mint julep. A few, in fact. |
Well, I just love mint. That's all.

May the winds of fortune sail you,
May you sail a gentle sea,
May it always be the other guy,
Who says, this drink's on me.
