I was born and raised in Racine WI.  Worked in Milwaukee and got to go over the river that fed the plant twice a day, five days a week.  Between the tanning factory, and the Miller brewery, the aroma was so prevalent nobody ever new about the fertilizer being created just on the other side of the bridge. ::)

They may bypass the middle man at the end, but I don't think Portland or San Fran people consume enough beer to add   the nutrients that the brewery's added to the mix that hit the mouth of the Milwaukee river. ;D

I used to sell beer in the hood, trust me, they drink enough Milwaukee's Best Ice to fertilize all of Nebraska's corn fields.  It's the new MD 20-20.  The new drone in the hood.😉

Miller had not (trying not to use contractions until the problem with special characters is fixed) come up with that one when I was younger.  It was mostly High-life and Lite.  Besides they are still the Middle Men ::).

By the way, how is retirement treating ya?  Like I said it got harder for me to keep track of what day of the week it was, especially after the wife retired.

I use tongs and toss it in the trash and then go take Benadryl.

That picture almost makes me break out in hives and makes it hard to breath.

Did everyone fall asleep?
Picked up my new-to-me SS Ruger old Vaquero .45 Colt 7.5". I baptized it with BP loads.

I was off on some jaunt once and hit upon that worlds longest yard sale.
Sensory overload.... parked some, walked a bunch, missed a whole bunch I'm sure...
I recall got some cool antiques , but always wondered what I over-looked or just missed  :o

Congrats on VAC's Slim...I had pair of SS 7.5 as my 1st. SASS guns back in 92, burned out on SASS and foolishly sold them  ::)

I'm off to the Toy store, to see if any thing cool has come in  :P then lunch with my pard .

I've been in hiding from the green mass I created (called a Lawn).  Decided to turn the sprinkles off, so it will dry off by Sunday or Monday, so I can give it another hair cut before the rains come in later next week.  Normally everything around here dries off in a few hours, but the cooler temps have been keeping the greenery damp. (Streets are still dry in a heartbeat).

Summary of the week: New radiator hose and rear brake pads on the Mail Blazer, new back tires on the Mighty Dakota, new blades on the riding mower, and a battery for the Farmall so I don't have to hand crank it all the time. So the state tax return check basically came and went already.
