Wine - slippage

Postby sahona » Thu Aug 04, 2016 1:00 am

We sometimes drop the odd glass... and if I'm quick the wooden bits get cleaned before they're marked forever -however, this is about another consequence. Replacement of the broken vessel.
We like glass glasses, not plastic. So a search for replacements led here - http://www.cactusnav.com/shopping_cart.php
Now who can deny that the leisure marine industry is filling my glass with urine from a pregnant horse?
50 fekkin quid for a wee glass - I've had several > 200 year old classics for less.

I know we joke and whinge about 'swindlery' prices, but who can beat that?

Maybe I should buy a few in case Brexit causes a price rise.

EDIT :

boogery, that link shows an empty basket, it should look like this -

A problem shared is a problem solved.
Buy yin o they wine boxes, lie doon in ra saloon wi the tap just above yer mouth. Reach up and gie it a squirt each time ra thirst rages.

Rigging up ra tandam involves a wee Y shaped device tae 3 bits o plastic hose - wan frae ra tap an then wan tae each consumer.
Ah realise that we've introduced plastic intae ra mix but if ye drink quickly it'll nae be in contact wi the nectar fer long.

Ye possibly need 3 sets of kit - a Red wan, a white wan and a pink wan in case ye've a shirtlifter on board
