Magpie #195 The Season of Overindulgence

Autumn on the River 1889
John Singer Sargent

There once was a lass named Susie
Who loved drinking lots of brewskis
With an icebag on her head
She should have been in bed
As she's feeling really quite woozy
~~~~~~~
Thanks to Tess Kincaid for providing yet another 
fine image to prod our imaginations- 
to read more just stagger over to this link! Cheers!

I've done that a time or two over the years. Not anymore, but in my youth.

Nicely done.

Have a fabulous day Kathe. Big hugs. :)

Now you mention it, that hat does look like an icepack! :)

I don't think I'd want to recover from too much drinking in a rocking boat. Take care.

There's probably an interesting reason why she ended up where she is, if she could only remember it!
