Congratulations, Margaret! I had no idea you were close to that old.

This sounds interesting. Unfortunately, I don't have a good idea on

However, the idea is intriguing. How do you prepare these cherries? It
doesn't sound like the three tablespoons of liquor goes very far in
marinating a pound of cherries. As a minimum, I'd expect to need to
almost bury the cherries in the liquor, but 3 tablespoons doesn't seem
like enough, even if the cherries were spread out in a single layer.
Is this what you do? Maybe rotating the cherries so every part of each
cherry gets to soak in the liquor for at least a little while? Or am I
totally missing something?
