Well played, Dan!
Wait for it...
Wishing you all some peace and relaxation this weekend. Perhaps with a cold drink...
... and maybe a good read.
Yeah, I gotta agree Vince!
That's looking good Mike Nice doohickey hiding away in the background
LOL! It's got to be 10 years ago David, I was supposed to be meeting a feller there. Having virtually no interest in televised sports, I was completely unaware that there'd been some sort of kick-off the night before relating to the European Cup. I got off the train, and all I saw was drunken Rangers fans, cops, and cigarette butts, and the idiot I was meeting didn't have the sense to cancel or suggest an alternative location
Here's the night before
I'll see you! I always have a bottle of Highland Park in Slainte
But what's this??!! These 'security seals' are supposed to stop the bottles (which comes in a cardboard package) being stolen, but at least a third of the time the shop staff forget to take them off I'm going to have to get the hacksaw out now
Hope you had a nice visit with your mom, John!
The stag on your Hartshead Barlow looks great. Seems like it’s fairly thin and flat, which I like in stag (as long as it still has character, which your’s does). I wonder if they were all like that or if some had fatter stag. (I opted for the Rosewood HHB instead of the stag.)
That’s funny! I didn’t know there was a UK-and-Ireland version of the quiz. Of course, I had to take it, too. My result was basically “Sod off, yank!”
They all sound pretty good! I’ll be cracking a few open this afternoon.
Hey, I know that place!
I’ve never understood why they measure the capacity of truck beds in cubic feet and not the same way they measure coolers: “how many cans of beer can it hold?”
Also, I googled “Wigan butty” and subsequently learned about the “pie barm.”
The two four-packs I got in cans (the Nut Brown Ale and the Lager) were also available in bottles, but the price was the same, and the cans are 14.9 oz versus 12 oz bottles. That’s 23.2 oz of free beer!
Cold drinks are going to be a necessity. Our central A/C isn’t working, and the diagnosis is not good — full replacement. It’ll be a week or so before we can get it done, and while it’s not supposed to be too hot, it’ll be warm enough that I’d have the A/C on if it was working.
Not a bad idea. I'm only about halfway through my stay-in-place stockpile.
The visit was good.
They had her at a table in a garage, we drove up but stayed in the car, and we visited at a distance. It was just good to see her.
The stag on my Heartshead is nice.
Not too thick, but certainly not thin.
It has just enough character to make it interesting.
I originally wanted a Rosewood but Jack was running short so I changed it to stag.
Lol... That's funny.
Probably some deep distant relationship to why the metric system never took hold here...
Oh, man, sorry to hear that, Barrett. I hope it stays merely warm until you can have it replaced.
Looks as though your Hartshead has been helping out.
Alright, I’m starting off my Samuel Smith tasting weekend with the Organic Pale Ale. Now I’ve never been very good at tasting notes, so I’ll keep it simple: I like it. This is definitely what I’d consider a good session beer. I’d love to sit down at a pub with a few fellow Guardians and finish off several pints of this stuff. (I guess if it were a Sam Smith’s pub, we’d have to maintain Porch rules and watch our language!)
Seriously, a very good start. I’m looking forward to the rest!
Yep, it's cut a lime or two.
Thanks Jack. Doohickey is an ukko whetstone pendant from my hiking pack
I miss d the memo on the Samuel Smith beer train...dang it. Cheers Guardians!
I had the Pure Brewed Organic Lager tonight, as well. My opinion falls right in line with those already shared by @Jack Black and @Prester John. It’s a perfectly drinkable beer — it would make an excellent yard work beer for a hot day — but there’s nothing outstanding about it, either. Of the two I had tonight, I definitely prefer the Pale Ale.
Also, Vince, you must have snapped your photo quick! The head on this one didn’t last very long.
Cheers Greg, hope you have a nice weekend
LOL! I'm going to have to give that one a go! But what if it says I'm from the south of England?!
Looks like some Yorkshire might have rubbed off on you Barrett!
Sorry to hear that mate I have a few things breaking down that I'm putting off getting fixed/replaced until after this crazy situation is over, but nothing that serious, hope it's not going to cost you a fortune
Do you live in the 'Little Odessa' part of Texas Rachel?!
I'm glad you had a good visit John, it must have meant a lot to all of you in spite of the weird circumstances. Hope you get to see each other again soon
The demand for the Rosewood models took me by surprise! For some folks, I guess the price difference was a factor. I had not expected there to be much difference. Typically of that firm, I couldn't even get prices from them the day before!
Glad you enjoyed it Barrett Sam Smith's pubs are often pretty unwelcoming places, they are also sometimes filthy, with badly-kept draught ales, and they are frequently jammed with drunks A good job they do a good bottled range you can take home
I thought it was a whetstone Mike, I've looked at ones like that
I imagine there'll be another train due before too long Taylor Great shot of your ebony '18 All your knives show wonderful character
I think you summed that up well Barrett, given the wealth of beer treasures coming out of Tadcaster, I don't think I'd be racing for the lager. That one is their premium lager, which they also do on draught, I've not tasted the others. Nice pic my friend
Good Morning Guardians, hope everyone is having a good weekend I had a very lazy day yesterday, which I rather enjoyed Got a few chores to do today, and I might make some soup. It's dull and overcast outside, and I can't see me straying further than the bottle-bank on the next street Have a great Sunday Guardians
There actually is an Odessa, Texas. It's pretty far out west.
Rosewood was an easy choice for me at the time. I don’t dislike stag, but I don’t have the same affinity for it that many porch folk do. Then I started seeing the stag models and realized that they were really special. Given the choice again, I guess I would have tried for one of each.
I'm looking forward to the day we can sit together and visit, she's not getting any younger.
Like Greg, I'm not a big fan of stag handles.
But, these are so special that I'm now glad I got one with premium covers.
I like your background, Jack.
Good Morning Guardians and Happy Sunday.
Another fine libation I see. Jack, you have good taste in those beverages that taste good
