On Autopilot, Relaxing...

Very Nice!
It's been a busy, though relaxing, few days so far in the DC area.

Had a nice lunch at The Wharf in old town Alexandria. Watched the ladies shopping. Met a sales clerk who told me that her Dad was retired Air Force, used to fly the F-111. Which was cool. (The Air Force ball cap is a great conversation starter, especially when the young ladies view you as a harmless old dude. Which I am.)

Buck used to be on me to try new beverages. While at Ft. Myer I picked up some of that beverage you see in the picture. Very smooth she was, very delicious. I can see why Buck liked the chocolate stouts. I will have more no doubt. In moderation, of course.

Gee, I miss Buck.

A lot...

  1. Chocolate (or coffee flavored from one of your earlier blogs) beer just doesn't sound that good but I will try anything at least once! Might actually be most excellent!
    Sounds like you've had a wonderful Christmas break so far and am wishing you and your family very Happy New Year!!!

    1. Back when we owned our wine shop, we had a large selection of beers also. Young's Double Chocolate Stout was always a good seller and one of my favorites. Rare Vos was my go to for shutting down and counting money in the evening. IIRC, that's made somewhere in the top right corner of the country, maybe NY.

    3. That's right Juvat, you used to have a wine shop. Stories?

      You are definitely a real Renaissance guy.
