Yo, Ho, Ho, and a Bottle Of Rum! -

Today, I shall celebrate, or should I say Mourn, the ending of the famous "Tot Of Rum" 50 years ago.

I have a bottle of Pusser's Rum, always, in the house, in memory of my parents & uncles, etc., who served their Country, in the RN, back in the Day.

Tonight may be a time for two tots which, carefully applied, will ward off even the worst ailments, maybe even Corvid.

Down The Hatch, Folks!

You sound just like my late brother (ex RN), Tedc. Enjoy your tots - and have one for him.

I don’t know if it’s the same stuff Ted but you can get Pussers on line, respect to those of yours who served and to you for keeping a tradition alive.
