A Selfie… and Some Alcohol History

First, my dad sent me a selfie over the weekend. What is the world coming to?

Hahahahahaha. I couldn’t help it. I had to post it on my blog. 110 years from now when we read this blog together… I will still laugh!

Since it’s Monday and I am in the work weeds right now, I don’t want to write an epistle today. Still, there’s a piece of history that I want to mention.

Today in history in 1933, the 18th Amendment was repealed. More specifically, it became legal to drink alcohol again.

On November 18, 1918, Congress banned the sale of  beverages that had an alcoholic content of greater than 2.75%. On January 17, 1920, the 18th Amendment outlawed “the manufacture, sale or transportation of intoxicating liquors”. Curiously, it was still legal to drink alcohol. Sounds like some lobbyist got busy!

Many states didn’t enforce the amendment. Drinking did decline but bootleggers kept supplying until the amendment was repealed. The only Constitutional Amendment to ever be repealed.

 

And for our “official” pic o’ day, Amy M. sent one that shows that everyone knows that it’s time to buy the Christmas tree:
