Tartanscot a/k/a Scot Meacham Wood, designer extraordinaire, held a contest for his custom designed bar cart for a recent showhouse. He is giving away the cart and all you had to do was send in your favorite summer cocktail recipe. He has published a few of them. Some of them were real doozies! The winner is to be announced today.

a Silly Goose!
I entered, with a goofy little summer drink we enjoy: we call it You Silly Goose! Made with 2 parts Grey Goose Citron, 1 part Limoncello, Club soda, a slice of lemon, and a sprig of fresh basil over a tall glass of ice.
But I also tracked down and found a little cane console table at an estate sale which I repaired and painted yellow, in what I admit is a shameless knockoff of his fabulous bar cart. We put it on the back porch today.
Here is Sweet Husband enjoying his Silly Goose!

|It was in sad shape, structurally speaking.|
The cane was fine.
|Painted and in place --|
another leg came loose,
so I fixed that one, too.
You might notice a few other changes -- more on those later. I have to get ready to leave for cataract surgery now -- wish me luck!

Re the surgery: Nobody told me that the eye would hurt! There is a stitch. I had a laser procedure first, then the cataract part, then I see my regular eye doc tomorrow. If all is well, then I will get the other done in two weeks. Dr. Choi is just the sweetest thing! He even said a prayer over me before he began.
