Bootlegging.


The Doc is a way for a few days now so it's just me and those pesky Elves here. The Doc did take the precaution though of marking the level up on his precious bottle of  Elijah Craig  Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey before he left.


So that's safe then!!


Fast forward a few hrs  to last night  and this is the conversation I overheard coming from the kitchen.

"Are you sure this is going to work little L'th?"
"Yes I'm positive". "It will be a piece of cake"
"Well you said that yesterday!"
"Look. Just you keep watching this tea bag I'm dunking and tell me when the liquid is the same colour as The Doc's Bourbon." 

"As soon as it's ready we can siphon off the bourbon and drink it and then replace with this tea solution. Bob's your Uncle job done."

"Well if your sure?"
"Yes I'm sure. All The Doc will do is check the level is the same and even if he takes the top off , the bottle will still smell of the bourbon. If he does decide to have a drink we will be long gone back up North cos he said he was keeping it till Christmas evening."




Disclaimer: That's it.  I'm cancelling Christmas next year.

  6. hee hee - that reminds me of a couple of friends who were going to race to the top of the local hill and the winner would get a bottle of macallan - one friend couldn't get up in the morning for the race so the other friend said they had won by default - when the 'whisky' was received it turned out to be cold tea in a bottle! Haha such fun xx

  7. Very crafty elves, not at card making either. Think you need to buy another bottle. At least if they have an hangover it may keep them quiet tomorrow.

  9. I see no good coming of this at all. I think you need to get a little tipsy in order to deal with them!

  10. Hasn't The Doc realised that the only safe thing for his alcohol is for it to be locked away and him have the only key for it! Don't make the mistake of thinking that they are quiet because they are hungover - I'm sure they will still manage to find some trouble to get into!! What will tomorrow bring I wonder?

  15. They are industrious, I'll give them that! Now if you could only harness that creative genius in ways that are beneficial to mankind, wow, then what a lovely Christmas it would be for all! I am glad you caught them in time for The Doc's sake (and, hence, yours!). The last thing you need is everyone pi**ed in different ways!! Hugs, Darnell
