Grandfather's Green Glass


Green Glass, originally uploaded by Kikigill.

My grandfather got these cheap green glasses in Mexico (according to my grandmother). He used to fill them, as was his habit, with extra ice in whatever beverage he was drinking. He would drink the liquid and then proceed to chomp the ice for hours after. One of my fondest memories of my grandfather is sitting next to him and listening to his teeth satisfyingly crush ice.

Beautiful pic!

I have a major aversion to ice crunching.. I just informed Mark of this last night! LOL
I'm pretty sure it's a suppressed memory from my childhood involving my step-father.

Lovely picture. I love heavy rustic glass. Btw, notice you've had a chain of ice/glass related pictures for three days now?
