Finale: Scottie, Beam Me Off This Train!

Part 4.

Well, at least I got that out of my system.

Now, in case you were wondering…  (And you probably weren’t, but I’m going to tell you anyway ‘cuz it’s my blog gosh darnit. )  Here are the Cowboy’s longtime favorites.

  • Glenmorangie
  • Knockando
  • Lagavulin
  • Oban
  • Talisker
  • Laphroaig

The Cowboy can’t ever drink that last one without remembering an old friend and one-time ranch boss to the Cowboy: a long, tall, Texan who bunked in the Village and the Fifth Arrondissement.  This  international securities lawyer and investment banker used to say that he drank Laphroaig when he wanted to feel mean.

Well, the Cowboy has never shared that desire, nor does he connect a nice whiskey with feeling mean.  But the memory of that urbane cowboy in the Quartier Latin sipping his Laphroaig with a bit of water still makes him smile.  I suppose when you realize how wonderful life is, you have to work at being mean.

If you’re planning your next ride out to the saloon or the Fifth Arrondissement, here’s a guide.

As for Scottie, he got beamed up from New Mexico in 2007.  So, here’s a toast to him and to all of those smart people trying to solve this mess we’re in.  Let’s hope they’re as good as Scottie at getting the ship (or train) out of trouble – and quickly!  Cheers!
