Yo ho ho!

Yesterday I went from my yo-yo-ing to yo-ho-ing.  I went to Premier Liquor and bought rum!

I have in mind Christmas baking. Christmas starts early at our house, I have to admit it. We have already had our first Christmas caroling rehearsal. That is a story for another day.

Meanwhile Stir-Up Sunday ...

... will be here before we know it. I want to be able to get started with fruitcakes and rum confections. And what do you know, Premier has these amazing rum specials going. We are talking rebates of $10 and $15.

You know me and rebates. But I make an exception when the sums are this high.

I know nothing about rum but I made two selections. There was a third special going too, on yet another kind of rum. Mayhap I will return. See, when you are talking about rum you wind up talking like a pirate and not the biographer of Leonard Pennario. Arrrr.

One rum that I purchased was Blackheart.

It has the requisite embarrassing trashy picture on the label like the one at the top of this post.

That is a signal that it will be good. We must buy the rum that the pirates buy!

Howard and I sampled it last night. Howard had it with frozen bananas and I had a sip straight up.
Seemed OK to me!

Now I have actually to send in the rebate. Those Blackheart manufacturers with their black hearts are doubtless hoping I will not. But I will foil them.
