It's been several weeks now, since I returned from my visit with English Jonny, Anonymous, Z, the Fair River Maidens, et al., and I am partially recovered. A good ale is once again a treat to be savored. Unfortunately, a whiff of whiskey, or of whisky (Yes, both kinds. Kids, do not try that at home.), still does not sit well.
In fact, the smell of my banjo elicits a similar visceral reaction. It may be some time before I touch bottle or banjo.
