Mr. Priban (339/365)

Mr. Ken Priban: Terrified of him on day-one. Everything in his class had to be written in black ink. The bar was high, which most seventh graders hated. Leaf identification project, that intoxicating aroma of pond scum and frog dissections still prism to mind thirty-two years later.

Oh Mr. Wright! 25+ years later I wonder if he would be proud to know I created a cocktail called Pawlet Pond Scum! Intimidating to look at but tasty. Just remember not to stir it!

Great Post! Reminded me of my pond scum exploration!

OK. Now I may have to order this next time I'm in the bar. But I'm a little afraid.

B.K.,
I am so coming to your bar to order that drink. And talk about this 365 trip.

It's a date! All are welcome! Pawlet Pond Scum only looks scary. It is quite sweet BUT the last sip a doozy! You have to drink it to believe it!
