Estaban a la playa ?
Kentucky update... like y'all GAF ...
I'm in Louisville airport now. Be into LA soon enough. Looked at plenty of homes in Bardstown and spoke with a few schools here. This is going to be our new home. So beautiful.
A few hours drive from Cincy, so I'll see the Blue maybe once a year if I want to. Louisville has a AAA team for the Mutts. Not a bad hub for sports here. Plus, the bourbon is superb.
Get it straight Yankee boy........it Louvull.
I know how to say it. Shit howdy... I was mistook for local TWICE this weekend. Wesring my NRA hat and speaking south gets me there easy.
You need to develop a taste for corn liquor.
Drank Basil Hayden all weekend. Loved it. I could get used to that.
been a lot of years but Cincy is a strange place as is most of Ohio imo
used to go there on business and didn't really explore much but did go to the old Riverfront stadium
was in the middle of a long stretch of sobriety at the time and was watching the beer guy walk around w sweat rolling off his cap and into the beer
when he got to the person in front of me i mentioned what i saw and he just laughed and said its all protein...
i remembered looking around the stadium and feeling like a total alien in that crowd
its kind of like La Canada, you can't really put your finger on what it is exactly but you know you don't belong lol
have to check out the Basil
30-40 dollar bourbon is under rated. You can find good bottles. Elijah Craig is pretty solid for the price. Makes a good old fashion and even drinks nice on the rocks. Basil Hayden is another. I keep these in the cabinet as staples.
Discovered three labels that tasted really great, and one I already knew but had no idea it was that good.
Buzzard's Roost Rye
Blood Oath is a little more than a daily drinker. The others are new to me. I’ll look em up.
True. Blood Oath is out of my budget. But the realtor was breaking out the good stuff to get us to like him and I wouldn't say no. I've had Pappy's ... I'd say Blood Oath matched it for flavor and finish.
Ive never had either. Pappys is way out of my league. My cabinet doesn’t hold such greatness and while I have friends with great taste, those bottles are few and far between. I’m an alcoholic so $2500 bottles are a regrettable hangover.
I keep solid daily drinkers at 30-60 and some good single malts but nothing more than a couple hundred dollars a bottle. I actually have a great family friend from Scotland who has turned me onto some whisky that you would swear was > $200 a bottle but retails at 50 or so dollars. He’s taught me to not get caught up in dollars and age.
Whisky is so interesting
Nephew handled the sale of our old home about a year ago and after the deal closed he gave me a bottle of Hayden and the wife a bottle of Dom. I've really enjoyed the Hayden. Wife and daughters downed the Dom around the holidays. I can't stand champagne, even the so-called good stuff.
love this post
especially the la cañada reference...
ever traveled thru monrovia devil?
it’s like back to the future meets the twilight zone
never been to ohio, and am grateful for your clarification so i won’t have to add it to my bucket list lol
Four dead there.
If my father-in-law were not a well off and VERY generous man, I'd never have tasted Pappy's either. A teacher's pay makes me an Auchentoshan Three-Wood drinker at the very highest end, and a Redbreast Irish Whisky drinker as a working alky myself.
Bourbons are interesting, and yet, I rarely drank them most of my life. No idea why. I'm Irish Catholic. It was holy water for my late father, but I stuck to the usual cheap stuff in that regard.
Anyway, this weekend really upped my awareness. That Lux Row distillery is gorgeous, although the 20something staff they had were inept at best. The lockdown has made wait staffs and customer service in many industries pretty dicey. But the craftsman making our booze seems to have maintained excellence.
Went for my first vaccine yesterday...National Guard doing much of the work, and I gotta hand it to them, they look like they've got it down pat. Doing the best they can under shitty circumstances.
Anyway, was talking to a Spec 4 as it is now, and her name was Vasquez. So I said that's cool to be in the military with the same name as that badass Vazquez in 'Aliens '...she had no idea what or who I was talking about...not a clue.
Then, down the line a bit, I struck up a conversation with another kid...all of maybe 23/24. His rank ( now worn on the front of the tunic only), was three stripes up and three down, with a diamond in the middle. A first sgt. !
He directed me to my station, and I automatically said" thanks Top"...he asked me what I meant by that and I just mumbled something about the old army jargon.
I was thinking what this first shirt was just a kid, and remembered back to the ones I knew back in the day.
Grizzled hard ass guys with white hair crewcuts.
And that great line by Robin Williams in Good Morning Viet Nam, when he was getting chewed out by a sgt. who asked.him if he knew what the hell these stripes on his sleeve meant- three up and three down ?
And he answers, " a quick inning ? "
Then went back to feeling old...
super violent winds this morning in Chatsworth
went outside around 4 to see what was happening on the property cause shit was loud
moon looked crazy and trees whipping like crazy and my thought was to move my Tundra parked out back
made my way back to my house to get the keys and heard a giant ripping sound and thought the roof had been torn off my garage
turns out my loyal pick up was crunched by a giant piece of ash tree
given 45 seconds i would have been standing next to the drivers door and would almost certainly have been injured at the very least
timing is everything my friends
wish i could post a picture here
