For those of you who know our old MC friend, Thomas, he made a little gift for Jude.
I vaguely recall Thomas once telling me that he felt certain he could live anywhere in the entire world...as long as there was a Coke vendor within a manageable distance. And knowing Thomas, even in Antarctica he could make a way...if only he could keep his Coke thawed long enough for an occasional swig.
He came to stay with us for two days a year or two ago and brought three 2 liters of Coke with him...just in case I didn't have any on hand. I don't think there was any left in the fridge when he left.
