'Time 'O 'Tha Year--Russian Tea--a La ,Ax.Make a half gallon--

Tea--your choice strong or mild--make on stove do not boil--simmer.If you boil=bitter.

In a seperate pot combine juice and pulp of two lemons,(Sometimes I put in Oranges) pint of water two cloves, half tsp of Cinnamon, --heat up and simmer--This your "Essence"--keep some seperate --I pour some essence in a mug, and steaming tea on top of it--

After tea is done add the Essence--and simmer--you canstrain--but I like all that good stuf in my mug--

Optional--Three Fingers of favorite spirits added.

Oh, Boy--the times when the cure was worse than the malady.:)

Mook,

Down at the "House" G'Fathers property--paved road in front-legally I own half of it--:),All entrances to Hardspat Hollow Mines (Pratt Seam and "Nickle Plate" Coal) have been blocked off, (Spent the best of my youth up there , me and Fritz) the creek and flood plain ground up for grabs, borders the only access road--

Hmmm--down to the courthouse to pick up flood plain, back taxed property--wouldn't do it otherwise than memories--Part 1.

Re:"Hardspat", Al--after I got out of the Army, some decades later I went back up the Hollow in the fall, passed by "Hookworm"--G'Pa named it because one had to Lie Down and "Hook It"--He and G'Uncle told the engineers it had a Mudslip- in it--First rain, down Hookworm came--:D
