Skull Creek: addendum

        6:45 PM  A couple of hours after I posted the earlier entry today.
        The sun set around 5:30 and shortly afterwards I begin to see my breath in the Great Cabin, not excuse but reason enough to do what we knew I would:  open a bottle of Laphroaig.
        I almost did not dig out one of the two crystal glasses, but you have to have principles about something and Laphroaig deserves better than plastic.
        So I unbubblewrapped a Dartington Crystal Double Old Fashioned glass and poured.
        The aroma instantly filled the Great Cabin and raised the temperature several degrees and the spirits my spirits, which weren’t low but I couldn’t resist the phrase.
