Received this email from friend Mike:
First, I wish you all a Merry Christmas season and a wonderful New Year. May you and your family be well and have a wonderful festive season.
Now, please be careful during the many holiday parties, and I would like to share a personal experience with all of you about drinking and driving.
As you well know, some of us have been known to have had brushes with the police on our way home from an occasional social session over the years. A couple of nights ago, I was out for an evening with friends and had a couple of cocktails and a rather nice bottle of Pinot Noir. Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I never done before~~I took a cab home. Sure enough, I passed a police sobriety check point, but since I was in a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safe and sound without incident, which was a real surprise; as I have never driven a cab before and am not sure what to do with it now that it’s in my garage!
Cheers and Happy Holidays,
