    Ill have a beer instead

    Phew, Its 90deg in my casting room and I was hoping to cast some boolits from the pile of moulds I have just aquired. Its hotter outside so Ive decided to have a beer instead. Its just gone 5.15 pm Friday and we are having a long weekend with a holiday on Monday. I hope it rains a bit and waters the vege's especially the tomatoes bulging on thier vines and then Ill celebrate that with another beer. Should be a good weekend.

    It is only -5 here with a little snow. It is never too hot or too cold to have a beer.

    Balmy 40 degrees for our February thaw. Wife decided wine went with nachos instead of beer, but in the same "spirit" so to speak... cheers.

    I had a beer this evening.
    It started raining here as well...but it suppose to get cold and rain is to turn to snow, and then get real windy...Blizzard warnings in my county for tomorrow morning, all day, and into the evening.

    Better make sure you are stocked up with enough beer then.

    I'm beginning to notice a theme here! I guess that deserves a beer.

    Woodworking and beer for the last two days. Cousin needed a chest for her son to take to the fair to store his things for showing an animal. I designed it then supervised over a number of beers while she builds it. Staggered pine boards with oak pegs to bind it together with a plywood liner then toasted with a torch and waxed. Should finish it up tomorrow. Something built with your own hands to give as a gift just does something for me. Love running my fingers over a hand built woodworking project. Something of the builder always remains, be it a month or 800 years.

    We were in Bisbee yesterday, walking in the 100 + heat. Walked around the corner and there was the "Old Bisbee Brewing Company " Let's go in! Tried 7 samples, then settled on a 20 oz IPA. Yes, beer is good!

    I probably haven't had a beer in a year or more, there is a couple in the fridge but they are likely bad by now. lol Actually they haven't been there for all that long, as I generally keep a few for when a friend wants one.
    Earlier in the week I was visiting some friends and family that had driven up from New Mexico and Indiana and drank one, it tasted so good a couple days later a friend I was visiting offered me one and I drank two. I think I am turning into a downright alcy. lol

    Out of town friends will be our downfall. I long retired coworker was passing thru town so we got together at a local bar. I had a couple beers, they tasted great, I had not had a beer in months. Next time I was in the store I bought a six pack. Things had been slow at work so it took a few days off. Wife got on my case for not bathing and sitting on the patio drinking beer in the afternoon. She told me that would not be ok when I retire
