Yup, puts me in mind of the time ol Emil Farquar, who has a stocker operation over on Hogshooter Creek, decided to quit smoking. Well,ol Emil was known to take a sip of corn sqeezins from time to time and as he tells it, he just took a little sip when ever he wanted a smoke. He said he didn't remember it being too hard to quit. Course he said he couldn't really remember too much about that whole winter when he quit.

You should have built a small silo to provide Gertrude with liquid refreshments, savings on the bar bill at $67 a pop would have paid it off soon.

That's a great idea, Bob. Now let me see, how big a silo do I need?

My Uncle Alfred built his own silo, and had a cement ramp way down on one side, a sloped floor and a big spigot handy. He used to tap off about 5-6 barrels of silo juice in the Fall and fiddle with them thru winter, he supplied the whole township with distilled silo drippins. That stuff was crystal clear and would start a fire in a snowbank! The girls called it bloomer solvent and paid for his silo pretty quick, i don't remember what year ..... i think around the baby boom :)

HAHAHAHA!! "Bloomer solvent" Gotta remember that one!! I know what you mean about silo juice, too. I do believe you COULD start a fire in a snow bank. "Bloomer solvent" ...I'm going to be laughing all day.
