We need places that serve booze to our "chosen few" so they can reproduce faster than those "others" can reproduce.

I helped load a many 55 Chevrolets with back seat out headed that way. They'd hold a truck load, but no 41 Mercury. Yet it was top grade corn whisky. You can't even find that quality any more, just imitations. Last i tasted a few years back, no comparison. Rot Gut, i think the term was. Yea i heard of Emmersons but never visited there.

Naw Marie, I wuz drinking a little better quality! Don't know if you remember a watering hole called Emmersons or not, They made their own really good sugar whiskey and served it in a bar in the back room. If the sales got slow we loaded a 41 mercury and sold it in Winston Salem.

This is probably not even a third of them. Like i said earlier back in the day about anywhere you stopped was " joint" one way or another.@O d d::: I must'a been a little earlier than you, 25 cent would get ya half snuff glass full & 50 cent almost to da top. A 50 center was about all i could handle. LOL
