Hi Susan! Did he (B.Franklin) say beer or wine?

Last Update: April 14, 2018

There are two camps: (1) those that believe his reference was to beer, and (2) those that believe his reference was to wine.

Perhaps he was a teetotaller or maybe not. But, he did enjoy wine. Aahh!

I think his reference was to wine.

What do you think?

From all I know, Ben Franklin was definitely not afraid of a drink now and again!

Heck no! I've seen some exhibits on Ben Franklin and the Founding Fathers, so I know whereof I speak!

Hhmm so he was a drunk after all!

Well, they didn't have any soda pop at the time, I don't think...

And I don't know how good the drinking water was, maybe he didn't have a choice (?)...

(oh he was a drunk... hehehe) :)

Good night Jeannine, have a good weekend...I'm signing off for the day.

Enjoy your day or evening in your part of the world! :)
