As Head Groundskeeper & Maintenance Manager my pressing work is behind me for a few days. But before I could make it to the shower, FedEx made a delivery.

Late last wk I found a 1960's NOS Indoor-Outdoor Hors-d'euvre & Bar Cart. So naturally I had to unpack & put it together.

The hors-d'euvres tray is removable to make a game table or whatever. I think it would be perfect for fajita fixin's & tortillas in the center.

The drinks table has a removable ice bucket.

I have some 5v dc LED lights I'm going to add underneath when I have time.

Now to the showers.

Very cool Jack. That would be perfect for my Wife’s famous deviled eggs....

Tried some Texas Select Club Grand Reserve Canadian Whisky with my Nutria Quality last night. I’ve been having some sinus issues so my taste is off and I can’t really give it an honest review. I always like Canadian and Rye Whisky, so thought I would give it a try.

Sweet Friday evening to all! I am finally home after starting a practice at 7:00am. To celebrate the efforts I have poured yet another Surley Supreme. Arriving home, change of clothes (Covid required) and a quick shower (daily effort required) I opened a Surley Supreme (refreshment required). Yes it tastes the same as yesterday. I am feeling much refreshed kicking up my feet with my dog. I have planned absolutely nothing for this evening. My dog, the native animals/birds, lake antics, the pesky bugs and a quenching beer are my plans til the sun drops.

Oh yes to point, I am sport'n a Cordova Cap in linen. Cool and comfy in tonights weather. I think it pairs well with my beer choice.;)

I hope your evening is starting out to be as relaxed as my in. A sanctuary indulgence tonight. Cheers, Eric -

Headed out shortly on a BBQ rib run & some Bear Hair Belgium Blonde Ale curbside. Brewed by Logboat Brewing, Columbia, MO.

BBQ and Ale - that sounds like a perfect beginning to an afternoon. The citrus flavor and light spice finish should make an excellent pre-BBQ apertif.

Shrimp tacos for brunch gave me an opportunity to sample Funked Up Salinity. This small brewer, Bent Brew, has some unique Gose beers. "This beer is a bright and yeasty. Fresh and fruity. Sour and tangy. Simply, an unfiltered, sour, salty and spicy wheat-based ale from Leipzig that dances across your tongue…and kicks a little butt." https://www.bentbrewstillery.com/sour-brews/
This is a fun beer.

No trades for shrimp tacos.

Cold press coffee has been delicious today. Morning and early afternoon it tastes refreshing. I have been drinking a thermos of coffee during my days and it is time for a "new" caffeine taste.

Mushroom, pasta, soup for lunch with a Funked Up Salinity gose styled beer. Just a bit ago I was visiting, hailing across the water to my neighbors on their dock, sipping a Founders All Day IPA.

I am feeling my optimism and energy buckets full for the upcoming week. Cheers to all, Eric -

Good pairing! I've been wanting a green bandana but I like that orange one.
Back story: I bought a nice Stetson Stetsonian hat on ebay and this Tito's Vodka bandana was in the box! Cool little bonus.
PS. I'm glad I proofread my own stuff... I type fast, real fast, sometimes too fast. I had left out the O in Tito's!!

Typical summer Sunday with the redneck AC WFO and the PBR cold. Canadian 7X CB providing shade outside of the umbrellas.

Cold and tasty - that sounds perfect. I love your "grail" hat!

I'm not much of a Vodka guy, but I couldn't resist this matchy-matchy!

I am all in on your "matchy matchy." I suspect you are at the point in life were you do or buy what you want because and not because of what someone might think. I respectfully do not put much stock in others fashion opinions. This said - looks solid to me.

I am finally home and sipping an Indeed Lucy Session Sour. This local Minnesota ale is 4.2%ABV. The Session Sour is light in body with orange/passion fruit notes and a tart finish. I love the piney, ale taste, with just enough vesty sour taste. Not a "pucker sour," but a refreshing taste. After a looong day, it is truly tasty.

Off to bed soon as my 5:15am start comes quickly.

I was able to only have Guinness Draught Stout once on tap just before the shutdown. I know Eric & Hagwood have spoken highly of it in a can also, so I bought a 4-pack on sale when I was in Walgreens to enjoy tonight. Guinness Draught Stout obviously doesn't have much of a foamy head out of the can. It would probably pair well with some dark rich chocolate to nibble on after dinner.
