It's settled. I'm going over to Jeff2's to brew some beer Friday night. He won't learn how to all-grain brew, but we're going to have some fun...(his wife and kids will be elsewhere, that night).
I've got to take it easy, though. I'm leading a couple of trail runs this weekend, and I don't want to be as sapped of energy as I was last week. 4 hours of sleep per night and a lot of activity just didn't cut it, last weekend.
Normisms. i found my file of Normisms. Here they are:
Normisms (from Cheers) Sam: Hey, what's happening, Norm?Norm: Well, it's a dog-eat-dog world, Sammy, and I'm wearing Milk-Bone underwear.

Sam: What'd you like, Normie?Norm: A reason to live. Gimme another beer.

Woody: How are you today, Mr. Peterson?Norm: Never been better, Woody. ... Just once I'd like to be better.
Woody: Hey, Mr. Peterson, you got room for a beer?Norm: Nope, but I am willing to add on.
Sam: Beer, Norm?Norm: Have I gotten that predictable? Good.
Sam: Well, look at you. You look like the cat that swallowed the canary.Norm: And I need a beer to wash him down.
I find ways to enjoy life as much as I can. Also, life's too short to treat people poorly.
I'm into long runs in the park, consuming salt, popping blisters,
eating roadkill & tree bark, and burying whiners in shallow, unmarked
graves. I also enjoy designing trail race courses that would make the
Marquis de Sade blush.
A fun time for me would include banging muddy shoes together, setting
broken bones with a machinist's vise, and duct-taping-down any part of my
body that is bleeding or just flopping-about uselessly.
What helps me to be an active trailrunner and grandpa?
1) Daily sponge baths with bovine stem cells;
2) Copious amounts of delicious & nutritious homebrewed beer; and
3) My secret elixir...Bicarbonate of Figleaf.
