While the rest of the USA is covered under a blanket of snow or sitting in the ditch after just sliding off the highway, I'm walking around nature preserves in South Florida. Yes, this counts as showing off. It's been raining a lot lately, which means the canals and ponds and preserves are full of water. And life. A couple months ago we came to
Ok, not actually the first sunrise of 2019. It's January 18th, so there have probably been at least 17 sunrises prior to this morning. That said, I'm breaking my long (in internet time) hiatus from posting to ... post a sunrise. Not surprisingly, it's taken at a beach near our home in South Florida. Unrelatedly, it's nice to be alive. Amidst all the transient ebb
So the wife and I traveled the long and arduous miles from Florida to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving last week. About 1600 miles one way, probably ended up at about 3500 miles of total driving during that week. That's a lot. We did, however, pay nothing in hotel costs. Our first day of travel was essentially just a night, where we traveled about four hours from
And lo, @jayna offers us a new prompt in her 50 Word Short Story Challenge. This time around, we're offered the prompt of: chocolate Finally. Evie’s mom put down the chocolate bar. Evie stared at it. It called, beckoning from the kitchen counter. Mom wouldn’t mind if she had a bite. She stood on tiptoes, grabbing it. Five bites later it was gone.
There comes a time in every man's beer drinking life that he must ignore the label on the bottle entirely and just enjoy the beer for what it is. This is one of those times. Karben4's Fantasy Factory IPA has one of the most intentionally weird labels I've ever seen on a bottle. Sporting a fire-breathing unicorn being ridden by a cat holding a gun,
Recently, I wrote a 'Part 1' post about my desk build for my Landwhale (RV). The goal there was to offer a work surface where I could put my laptop (or even a full-size computer) and do work. Or writing. Or watching my crypto investments drop further into the toilet. All from the flexible traveling comfort of my work-in-progress Landwhale. We had this big, open
I don't have any depressing stories or semi-interesting photography or pictures of beer today. All I have is hail. We had a massive storm roll through the middle of Wisconsin (USA) Friday (yesterday). A humid, hot, gray day suddenly turned into a massively windy, rainy day. And then came the hail. I've never seen hail in summer, in the middle of June. Some the size
Ok. So I did a couple posts already related to my trip to Disneyworld, and even one about the Avatar ride (and the long wait to get on the ride.). I even touched on how nice their park set design is. But now, for the final milking of my trip, I will make a post solely of photos I took of the theme park 'foliage'
I am a fan of good beer. When I saw this bottle sitting on the shelf at my local Trader Joe's amidst their own knockoff beers and contract brews, I grabbed it. It wasn't cheap, but still, a large bomber of beer like this for $8USD is not bad. That's roughly what you'd pay for a small glass of it at the bar. Style: Belgian
I admit I was looking forward to @jayna's next prompt for her ongoing 50 Word Challenge so that I could add a new 50 word block to our Jenga tower that is now going to be 200 words tall. And now we have the prompt of 'sea'. It made things tricky since our little story chain is occurring in a forest, but it just means
