RiP Johnny Bush, and TaB

Post by sweetandsour » Fri Oct 16, 2020 7:07 pm

Johnny Bush, the writer of Whiskey River, has passed away. Talk about a song that will be around long after he's gone.
And:
Coke is discontinuing TaB cola at the end of 2020, the year that just keeps on taking away.

I can still picture an old single man in the town where I grew up. Diabetic, he only drank TaB, he said. He'd ask us kids if we wanted a TaB, we'd reply "sure", and old Eli would hand us a Sprite. "This ain't TaB, Eli, it's Sprite!".
"Well it's a TaB to me, hun", he'd reply.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

I haven't seen Tab cola since the Seventies.

TaB is being discontinued? Shouldn’t this be listed as a praise? Worst soda I ever tasted. Haven’t seen it on the shelves anywhere in ages.

I'll take your word for it.
