Blow into this.

Last hitch when I was in the Houston airport, I was talking to a fellow crew member and he was telling me that when his wife picks him up at the airport, she has a cooler in the car with chilled cokes and a flask of Crown Royal.

Ok, she's well intentioned, but.......

For a split second while he was telling me this story, I thought to myself, it would be nice if my wife picked me up with a chilled bottle of chardonay. Lucky for me, I'm not as dumb as I look, because I never did place that order.

Good thing, because last hitch as my wife was driving me home from the airport at midnight, we were stopped at a sobriety check point and proudly stated to the officers, "Hell no we haven't been drinking!" As we pulled away from the check point I shared the story with my wife of the guy who drinks Crown on the way home from his airport.

Another hitch goes by, and last night, as my wife was driving me home from the airport again at 1 am, we got pulled over by the State Police, AGAIN, where we stated with some pride, "Hell no we haven't been drinking."

Kids, let this be a lesson to you.

It's a good thing I'm not as dumb as I look.

Today, my first morning home....it doesn't get any better than this.

This view is much better than the view from a drunk tank!

I love it when life shows up to reinforce why we make the choices we do. I'd choose that mug with the joe and the view from the deck over anything else too!

As much as I'd like to have a drink after a trip, I can wait until I get home.

Amen Mark.... Who wants to go to jail, ever. I'd rather be a square, prude , straight laced, whatever, than a dumb arse. LOL Our laws are no open containers, you don't even have to be drinking. A nice cool drink can wait till you are home and put your feet up. Blessings for a great time at home, xoxo,Susie

So not worth a sobriety test at 1 am....I like your drunk tank view! Have a wonderful weekend!

Yep; I agree with you both! And that is a nice view you have….sure would hate to miss it…no chardonnay would be worth it. :)
