    You were in Bratislava, Slovakia, and you had cola instead of their beer?

    I can excuse myself, because my most important pain medication is destroyed by even a little bit of alcohol.
    But the Czech Republic and Slovakia are both famous for their absolutely delicious beer. So even I might still be tempted.

    Back when I was too young to appreciate good beer, we rolled into Plzen, in what was then Czechoslovakia, after all of the restaurants had closed. But there was an open pub that served snacks, so we went there.
    I asked for soda or apple juice, but I was told that all they had was beer.
    "Could I have a small beer, please?"
    "All we serve is full liters."
    "OK, give me a liter."
    Well, it was so good that I drank the whole thing, and then drank another!
    My wife drove us back to the campground.

    Yea, I know. I have never been a big beer drinker. And for reasons of safety I try to not drink alcohol when traveling in a strange land, unless I am near my hotel.

    We had just gotten off the train from Vienna and were only in Brateslava for the day.

    Trust me, we are being invaded also. The HS my kids went to used to raffle off a shotgun every year for the football team. The invaders put a stop to it a few years ago. Minor league baseball team tried to have a contest and top prize was a gift certificate for an AR at a LGS. You would have thought they were advocating using it in a school shooting there was so much whining. They cancelled it but ended up getting a record crowd that night in support. So it's still pretty gun friendly but imports are trying to change things.

    I overheard some Yankees at a resturant once looking over the menu

    little girl: Mommy what's a grit
    mom: I don't know, some kind of animal they have down here.

    If there'll be biscuits and gravy with sausage that might be a deal closer.
