We're having a Bottle Blast at the Fall Festival
Our church has one main fundraiser each year,
a good old fashioned Fall Festival
with home cooking, games, silent auctions and a country store
along with the meat shoot.
Parishioners are asked to sell raffle tickets:
the quilt raffle
the prizes raffle
and pot shot cards for the meat shoot.
I've been collecting some bottles and decided to have
some fun with it. I picked up some shave preps at work
from my company store - I'm sure they won't reject a can or two.
They are sort of bottle shaped.
Then I added a couple of drink mix shakers
I found up at the liquor store in town.
They look pretty neat with mixes all around.
Again, not really a bottle but the adults
can aim for these guys.
Along with this classic brand from my early years.
I thought it might get a chuckle or two.
Remember Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill?
Well, this is Blue Hawaiian.
I just might aim at this one-
a blast from the past
and I'm even legal now!
We live in wine country. They discovered our area
has soil very similar to the vineyards in Germany.
Any given weekend in May or October will find
the roads from Herman, MO to Washington, Augusta to
St Charles and down to St James jammed with winery
visitors drinking their favorites while listening to
good, live music and snacking on fruits, crusty bread or
finely seasoned sausages.
I love the cow on the Country White!
I added some nice non alcoholic drinks, soap and cleaners too.
Just for good measure!
