Iced tea to quench your summer thirst


Margie: Edna, today is National Iced Tea Day. I wonder how much iced tea we've had to drink in our lifetime? Daddy sure did love tea. Mama always had a big pitcher in the fridge for him.

I think Cousin T is the only person who can drink as much tea as Daddy did. What do you think, sister?

Edna: I don't know, I've seen you put away gallons of the stuff then blame me when it's all gone. Speaking of which, we're all out so you'd best go make some more.

Margie: I'm not well, sister. The Dr. told me not to lift any pans. The best I can do is hold a tea glass then I run to the potty chair because of this medicine.

Ouch! Call my male nurse. Hurry!

Edna: Oh, I can hear the violins playing now. But you're right, the doctor said you should rest so I'll go brew us up a fresh batch of iced tea. But I don't want to hear any complaints about how I made it. Deal?

Margie: Deal. Make sure you put enough sugar, Edna. Oh, don't put ice in it until it cools off.

Edna: Good Lord folks, next thing you know she'll want me to call her "Your Majesty" and curtsy when I bring her a glass of iced tea. Kiss my grits, your royal highness!

thanks for buying an ad on my blog today ladies. And, I grew to love that 'sweet tea' when we lived in FL. Seems funny to live in WA now and the waitresses never ask if we want "sweet tea with that"?

Add a little moonshine to mine, ladies. I need it for the pain in my leg from that fall...and I hadn't even had any alcohol when I did that!!!
