Sitting here in Greenville, SC catching up on work. Back to Houston tonight. Actually started out in Greenville Sunday night. Left for Hartford. CT on Tuesday and returnered to Greenville yesterday. All business. No bottle visits. Darn. Just not enough time. Many of you are headed east to the National Bottle Museum Show in Ballston Spa, New York. That sounds like fun. Show Listings. Look for an upcoming post on an extremely rare sarsaparilla from Vicksburg, Mississippi.
