    Evening, Lodge. Making the hellrun to Decorah IA tomorrow for a beer release. 3 hours or so each way. Get my bottles, and my pour, and leave. The things I do for good beer (this one is a maple stout).
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I'm not sure that enduring Idiots Out Wandering Around is worth it for any beer.

    I'm paying $50/per 25 oz bottle, trading one for a $75/per 25oz bottle already. Going rate right now for both is about $100 on secondary.

    Also, never been there. Cross that off the list. And, I still have 2nd bottle to spare. (bottles are $50 retail, if your email gets chosen to get a ticket).

    Rough day. Drove up to Grand Rapids (MN, not MI) for a funeral for a college friend. I loved the hell outta that girl, but it didn't work out with my having to relocate back to the cities for my internship/job. We both moved on, got married, had kids, all while falling out of touch of course. She had a terribly rough go the last few years, miscarriages, divorce, etc. True to her gift of always making everyone else feel great, she never brought forward just how hard of a time she was having. Deep depression and alcoholism got their hooks in too deep before anyone knew the severity, and they took her at 34.

    I'm just sick about it. I know it is not my or anyone's fault, but dammit this stings. She ruled. Truly one of those people that never had a bad thing to say about anybody.

    I don't know why I'm sharing this here. Just an outlet I guess. I always thought I'd run into her somewhere, she'd meet our kid and I hers. We'd get a chance to chat and laugh like we always did.

    It's cliche, but true, folks. Reach out to those you care about. Don't assume you'll bump into each other someday. This effing sucks.

    Not that bad of a drive. I have to admit, less boring than driving to Houghton (actual drive only). It was a madhouse, as expected, ran into quite a few people I know from the (I hate myself for what I'm about to say) craft beer community. Toppling Goliath is really nice, we're talking almost Surly level for the space/building, although AFAIK they don't serve food there, they still rely on food trucks.

    Sorry It is always tough to lose someone, worse when they are good deep down. There is something about the bonds you make in college that just can't be replicated. I lost my best friend from college to HIV/AIDs. He was gay before gay was OK. He was strong in the adversity of his disease and stayed true to himself to the very end. He probably knew me better than anyone else in my life bar one person. He has been gone for 24 yrs and I still miss him and think of him.

    There's a song that's been out there for a year or two, "Sweettooth" by Brandi Carlisle. I'll be dammed if it doesn't move me to tears every time. I have known people that fit the song, and she sounds like one of them.

    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge 201: A State You Don't Expect

    Good morning from 33,000 feet somewhere over the Great Lakes. Flying to Las Vegas with my mom. My brother and family took the 6am flight, we decided to fly at 8am. Each got a wheelchair. First one on the plane!

    Iím wearing compression socks on both feet. Iím also wearing the boot. Got on the plane with the crutches. Iíve flown enough to know I wasnít getting on a plane without the protection of the boot. I told my mom weíd probably be the last ones off the plane and thatís fine.

    My younger brother is flying in from LA and will meet us at Baggage claim and will grab our suitcase. Given my lack my limited mobility, this should be an interesting trip. Given that I cannot get around that easy, I brought my laptop and will probably do some work. Hopefully I can grab some pool time!

    Good Afternoon Lodge!

    Nasty here in 978 land. It is so humid that the puddles from the rain last night haven't evaporated at all.

    Why isn't there Street View when you want it.? I was biking on Martinsburg Rd today where the back road from the Dickerson Power Plant and the Montgomery County incinerator (Covanta) intersects with it. I go there once a year. I had never noticed that the sign for that road reads "Haulin Ash Rd". Probably not an official name. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.2005.../data=!3m1!1e3
