Dead Soldiers for the Dead Count – Aug 21


08/21/2013 by syrbal-labrys

photoThus far, alas, the count is only the three bottles I already have. Obviously, if I do not get enough wee empty booze bottles to demonstrate the human cost of our wars since 9-11, I will simply read the names out at the Labyrinth and be done.

What I am hearing is that people think these bottles no longer exist. I’ve never been in a liquor store that did NOT have them somewhere! Other than that, however, I’ve seen them only in motel mini-bars, on airplanes, and I guess trains use them. Please pass the word….I can’t drink that many by myself, lol! Even if I could afford them!

    I have mentioned this to friends— and will send along any I gather.
    …I have the one from Shorty, (my dog) from last year…

    I have three myself at home but since I work at a casino I know of 3 boxes FULL of them. Sadly, they are themselves full, but they have been sitting in a corner for the 11 years I’ve worked here. I’m going to ask the boss if I could just dump them out (quietly) and send them on.

    I have no idea if she’ll let me, but if she did that would be a couple hundred for you.

    I can’t promise more than the three I have though.

    I’m passing the word, midear, but Wes and I don’t drink, so we are getting those we know who do to help. Hopefully. I don’t know what it’s like out there, but there are definitely small sample bottles of things in our local state stores. However most of those bottles are plastic. Is that a problem?
