I'm not good with alcohol, but a great iced tea and that beautiful beach would be wonderful. Just the thought makes you happy. Hugs, Marty

I wonder if I could order that gorgeous blue drink without the vodka and still sit in that wonderful blue chair while I gaze at the fantastic blue sky? Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.
