I hate beer but I did pose for a pic with the best (apparently) which is a Guinness. I have never in my life been photographed drinking a beer so I thought it was time. I have many prints of me and a friendly wine glass in my hand but never a beer. The stuff disgusts me.
When my daughter saw this picture she wrote me and said "You faker.....you would never drink that."
She's right but somehow I thought it was time to at least give credit to beer. I have washed my hair in it and added it to a beef roast but drink it....NEVER! Although, millions of people can't be wrong so "Here's to Beer and our new Beer Fridge."
Let me make a small correction - that would be MY beer fridge (Gary here). Anyone who would wash their hair in beer will not be associated with my fine new Guinness fridge that I won in a draw at the pub (The Royal Oak) that my colleagues and I go to every Friday. While Deb's Canadian friends will likely recognize the vintage Canadian "stubby" beer bottle that I am holding. I should perhaps say a word about the venerable Canadian Stubby, which was almost a Canadian institution for three decades (1961 to 1084). Actually, they give a better history at the link above than I could, so just read about it there. A word about Guinness though, their slogan, "Guinness is good for you" is more than just an advertising hook My Grampa Steckly actually had a doctors prescription for a pint of Guinness a day, as a blood builder (lots of iron apparently). That vintage bottle in my hand was one of his empties that never made it back to the brewers retail (I saved a whole case of them as memorabilia).
It seemed like you could fit a lot more of these bottles in your fridge because they were such compact little suckers, and you could stuff them in the smaller side compartments where those long neck bottles just wouldn't go.
Now on to more important things from Deb.....
A little white kitty needs your help...
Little Boo needs a home so she can enjoy Christmas with a new family. She sits at our local animal shelter since May/10. Let's all put good thoughts out for Boo and perhaps her special person will find her.
