People also used to drink "ammonia cokes" made with Coca-Cola and 3 or 4 drops of spirits of ammonia. They used to make them regularly in drug store soda fountains back in the "good old days." Mothers would make them for their small children's upset tummies, and many people drank them for migraine headaches and also to help with bursitis.

People actually still make this concoction, even though the label says not to ingest the stuff. I guess a few drops didn't hurt anyone.
If you're just making enough for yourself, you can get three or four batches out of that one little bottle.

A half ounce of spirits; a quart of water; a dozen cubes, and some towels in a little igloo cooler or jug. You'll be a happy umpire.

Where we are for our Sunday twin-bill, it'll be 99 degrees at 1:00. The crew will be learning about the wonders of ammonia towels.

My games got changed to a different park about 80 miles farther away, so it'll be in the next weekend or two. But I'll get there!

Maybe I should have said most drug stores can get it for you. I find it very interesting that pharmacists have never heard of it. Makes me happy I get my pills on the East coast.

There are a few things that haven't made it here quite yet. Hey the Lewis & Clark expedition wasn't really that long ago.
