She sips a thimble  sized cup and titters, I’m tipsy, while he bellows, Bottom’s up! and chugs  Two Buck Chuck. She hides her illicit cache in the cupboard beneath  the steel sink. What if church members drop by and spy Richard’s Wild  Irish Rose, Ripple, or Pagan Pink? After supper, they recline  in matching velour Lazy-Boys, lost in Matlock and Dynasty, drowsy  with dreams of mountain  streams and jugs of sweet muscadine.
