hey wheezy ..  I don't frequent as often as I used to but good to see you in good spirits in what I would consider a pretty large change in life.

Hang in there, glad you are turning things around and going in a good direction.

I do not post as often as I used to, still working my way through life and in general coming out on top every day.  I find myself in a better mood nearly always than I would have thought possible a few years ago.  Anyway, looks like the divorce will be finalized in the next month or so..  and then .. who knows, but the direction is upward and forward. 

Raising an early pint of Octoberfest for my beer brethren..  prosit! 
to freedom and integrity.  may you all have it and live it.

I learned a long time ago, drink your beer and smoke your smoke. 

The ingredients do not mix well between the two.  Anyone else tried brewing with smoke-ables?  terrible, terrible, wasteful experiment in my opinion...

The Pub / Lone Star Bock

Dear Lone Star Bock,

I have long been a fan of your sibling, Lone Star. We have shared many an amazing night/day/night together. Floating rivers, paddling canoe's, talking with the ladies, and more. Lone Star doesn't make me ask questions or look for answers, it is simply the beer of the moment. You, however, are a massive disappointment and a blight on the good name you bare on your label. You make me ask questions, soul searching, mind crippling questions about: Why? Why in Gods name were you able to make it past the countless people who have created such magic as your older brother. Why would they let you slip past all the taste tests and marketing groups, all the way to the assembly line, to my unassuming refrigerator. Your aggressive looking rams head staring me in the face as I twisted off your cap, and the immortal words 'LONE STAR' blazing above it. I had hope, real hope, not the kind Obama promised, but like: Holy s***! I just fell into an alligator pit and am about to get my ass tore up! And then I see a hand reaching down from a place unseen, a strong, safe, secure hand, that I can rely on to pull me out of the daily drudge that we all deal with.... and those Goddamned Alligators! But, alas, you were there... Hiding your horrible deception beneath your promising visage. Like all your ancestors, I saluted all those who had fallen before you. With bold carelessness I turned you up on end, expecting the same standard of glory I had been so accustomed.... I found none. Instead, what I had found was a carefully hidden lie lurking beneath you outer shell. You must have been brewed with all of the half smoked cigars in Texas! This liquid ash tray being dumped into my mouth and running down my throat was an unexpected surprise indeed. But it was a far cry from the aftertaste of this crucible. I have had bad beer before, several times in fact, i'm no Nancy! Some times a situation calls for one to swill a warm beer thats been in a truck for months, or to polish off the rest of lonely soldier from the night before... But nothing, had prepared me for the onslaught my well traveled pallet was about to confront. I have never had a cigar be put out on my tongue before, and I have never had anyone piss in my face. But now I know that I will never have to wonder what the feeling of both, happening at the same time, would be like after trying You, Lone Star Bock. Thank you for giving me an experience that I will never forget.

Yours Truly

I love that real ale firemans 4 too.

The Texans put a hurting on Miami today, loved that. 

I am really looking forward to tonights Denver - Pittsburg game with Peyton Manning back in the game. 

For one, I am a Manning fan, then I lived in Colorado for several years and have continued to be a Denver fan, and 3rd Pittsburg has been one of my favorite teams to watch since big Ben has been there.  I cannot remember looking forward to seeing a game this much. 

Also my favorite time of year, weather gets nice, football season, deer season, vacation days ahead, holidays .. halloween coming up, then turkey day and the rest.  Kids are back in school giving me a break during the day (I work from home).  So yeah, I love this time of year.

Good luck but it looks pretty dicey to me.

Can you rent it instead?  If it last sold for 3k, and now it is selling for 47k, what is your upside here?  How much more do you think it can increase? 


In case anyone missed it, this is the end cap house.  Looks like it is a touch burned up, very likely meth and or crack production.  Might want to consider the toxic properties of a meth lab explosion and whats left behind.  Then again, might want to re-consider the neighborhood that produces crack houses and meth fires and the need to consider "defensiveness" of the property. 




by the way, the second floor siding and valley flashing of every dwelling in this picture are in bad shape.  Very very likely to have systemic wood rot behind that.

thanks, I was inspired by the feedstore idea and drew up some ideas.  Still rough, but I like the direction.

herp derp indeed.

I smell everything before I drink or eat.  It drives my wife crazy.  Apparently in central american culture it is considered rude.  I'm not too bothered by it, if something smells stinks, I wont eat it. 

I guess that’s the rude part, because I find dishes made with stinky cheese inedible.  One whiff and I pass. 

Who would drink a can of soda that stuck and was obviously infected?
