    That can of Blatz brings back memories of Vietnam.

    Carling Black Label, Falstaff and Blatz were about the only beer we could get in Vietnam where I was......I remember neither of the three being very good and the cans were always rusty but we readily gulped it down when we were fortunate enough to get it.

    My first ever taste of beer was a swig of Carling Black Label from my Father's bottle. He used to drink the Carling Black Label, Miller High Life and Schlitz. I drink Miller High Life at home every weekend.

    JimW.......I like a ice cold beer now and then and for that reason I always keep a few 16 oz. PBR's in the refrigerator.

    Yep, PBR's are always good too! I had a couple cans of Ballantine Ale at a cookout a few weeks back.

    With respect, not fond of American beer. Victoria breweries make wonderful Canadian craft beer, pricey, but worth it.
    Love is a verb.

    No argument

    it's just that I'm amazed Anheuser could actually make a really good lager

    I stayed with a project thru dusk, so the pics are a tad dark



    Anyway

    Turns out the infinity pool is a hit



    Zippy took a long pull this evening

    Contemplated



    Drank



    Still drinking, two minutes later


    Still drinking….



    Even the Grey Geezer didn’t budge some chippies


    Thing is, I’m discovering several holes in the ground around here

    I think this feeding station is gonna come to an end by winter…or spring

    But

    Fatten ‘em up enough, those pelts..ahem…coats will look purdy good

    OK, today I actually finished the spinning shaque

    Did the landing, drip edge in places, enclosed one side of the porch, and added some trim








    My lady is happy…I’m happy


    You guys are prolly sick to death of seeing pics of my buddies, but, hey, it’s my early evening entertainment


    The chippies are getting a bit hot to trot….at least the males







    There’s two here, even though it doesn’t look even like one




    Helen has had a tough time finding a place to at least take a breath


    Most everywhere near the watering hole puts her in a somewhat vulnerable position


    Seems not much different than the two legged species
