    And motion. The doctor will have strong words for you. I hope you heed them, but it’s your call.

    I took out my hearing aids so did not hear the wine talking. BTW, I wish I got hearing aids many moons ago.

    Never tried L 50 but the reviews are solid. Didn’t check the reviews for Big Deal prior to purchase. At $12.99/ 12 what could go wrong?:grin::beers:

    Dude, now that I read it I have no idea either. Getting old sucks my friend. Most times I am coherent. Sometimes not though.

    All said, my lovely bride and I are starting to book rentals at OBX beach for the summer with kids and grandkids. I still got that shit together!

    Thank you my friend. I am just as excited as you with the soon to be baby Raul. Here is hoping he/she looks like her mom though.

    I gotta send a baby Raul though but I am a stupid fuck so you have to help folks like me. Newly minted granddaughter loves the baby swing. If this is something that may interest you text me in a private text.

    Hell no kid. Both daughters are freaking baby kids and did their research on many a baby thing including baby swings. I would be honored to send a baby swing your way. Hell, you might even get an hour or so of sleep from it. You are probably unaware but sleep will be a luxury for a few months after baby Raul is kicking and screaming.

    That said my offer stands. Text me privately if you are interested. Seriously you will not regret the baby swing.

    Just got done doing some household chores. Drinking Jai Alai. Gonna eat some food and then go to sleep. Good beer. Makes me wish I was back in Florida. I miss the palm trees, sunshine, white sandy beaches, and warm humid nights. * sigh *

    After kid number two and hitting 30 years old (bad complaint I know) the full blown caffeine addiction is in full swing. 1 coffee to have the energy to drink a 2nd coffee. 3rd one for the road and just maybe a red bull when I get to that 3pm slump at work. I miss sleep haha. Sleep up now. There are many living examples of this lol

    Please do. If Mrs. Raul does not want one I understand but it was a life saver for both of my kids when they were baby’s and so far both of my grand babies. Believe, sleep will be a luxury after baby Raul is born.

    You are about the same age as son-in-law #2 who just had his first. He has never been as happy. What you describe is the same as his experience and by the way the same as I went thru a few decades ago.

    That said, I got the deepest respect for new dads especially those who take fatherhood seriously. Congrats dude! You are experiencing the best time of your life.

    Ok my friend. As always wife will do the heavy lifting and we will send.

    I got so many things I would like to say as baby Raul takes over your life. Some folks will say it sucks but you will tell them differently. Enjoys these times my friend. They go by quickly.

    So me and my better half are reserving places at the NC beach for the summer. Intend to eat my weight in seafood.

    Hitting a long neglected mystery beer now that I'm finally back at home from a weekend at my folks' place, a three hour drive home, and then a ten hour shift where temperatures went from around freezing to our current 12°.

    Serving was a roughly 16oz bottle with a cork hidden under a bottle cap:
    [​IMG]

    Poured into a Precious Things teku, this was a cloudy apricot amber color, with a good sized sudsy off-white head that dropped within a couple minutes to a thin ring. I'm thinking a FF sour like the other mystery beer.
    [​IMG]
    That impression was confirmed by the tired and cold workers at my olfactory. But what kind of sour? I get peaches and lychee in the nose, along with a bretty funk.

    Taste goes with the impression I got from the nose. This is seeming like some sort of fruited wild ale.

    Fairly light and crisp mouth feel.

    Kinda reminds me of a Gewurtstraminer, at least a little. I wouldn't be surprised to find out it's something that was wine barrel aged.

    And the reveal...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I'm guessing that no fruit was used, as none is mentioned. I must have picked up on the flavor left in the barrels from the wine and imagined it was from fruit, which I suppose it was, just not in the way I thought. Delicious as a nightcap on this bitterly cold night.

    Incidentally, like he did with his other mystery beer to me, @Roguer hand drew a beer-centric mockery of a Porcupine Tree album cover, in this case Fear of a Blank Planet.
