Beverly: Mrs. Hinkle, do you drink?

Dottie Hinkle: No, I don't.

Beverly: So you weren't drunk when you received those alleged obscene phone calls?

Dottie Hinkle: I certainly was not.

Beverly: You mean to tell me the day I came over to Mrs. Ackerman's, the day you claim you recognized my voice, you weren't drinking?

Dottie Hinkle: One beer with lunch is hardly drinking.

Beverly: So you do drink?

Is that Thistle pattern from Waterford in the photo?


  1. I would make a comment about selling indulgences to buy bricks, but I'll refrain.

    At least someone has good taste in alcohol. I'd need a drink, too.

  2. I'm more of a bourbon gal myself...

    Jack Daniels please :)

    Although Canadian Mist with 7 is nice from time to time..

    Terry--your interrogation reminds me of my annual physical when my wondrful Mormom family practioner asks me "Do you drink alcohol??" then we get into the discussion of how much, how often, etc with the blatant look of disapproval for even considering touching a drop of wine...

    Ah, how I yearn for the days when my doctor was a very Orthodox Jewish man--with the curly sideburns and always dressed in black under his doctor's lab coat.I think the only one in Utah :) You DEFINITELY don't see many yarmulkes in this part of the world... You could talk about drinking around him :) But don't mention how much ham or bacon you eat..


  3. "pussywillows, dottie."

  5. such a smokey single malt...truely wond'rous!... so smokey that the tobacky is redundant.

  6. Meanwhile, 1 in 7 people on this planet are hungry. Not malnourished, not cutting back on their grocery budget. Undernourished. HUNGRY. For food.

    But hey, let them eat cake.
