Minor attrition rate... I use either short stem when formal dining or tumblers in the cockpit

Yeah, Ping, we drink box wine out of stemware, glass stemware, when we are puttin' on the dog. But because both Ann and I tend to wave our arms about as we talk, we tend to use glass tumblers most of the time!
And I find it hard to believe that there are folks who would deny boarding (after an invitation to do so) because you brought glass. We've been doing this cruising thing for a long time, and no one has ever acted like that towards us. Seems pretty out of line in a cruising environment
... but it takes all kinds...
Finally... Pisco Sours! It has been so many years since I had one... used to have a Peruvian friend, and his family
introduced me to that beverage. I remember (kinda vaguely, dunno why) that t hey were seductively delicious. But Dan Murphy seldom seems to stock Pisco, so I guess I'll just have to rely on memory!
