Up and at ’em, early this morning to be in Louisville KY for lunch with Rachael…. for all you islanders and East Coasters out there – that is Lou-a-vulle…… not Loueyville or any other messed up version of that particular city……. If you don’t pronounce it correctly…. you’re telling the entire world – you’re a foreigner and have no idea what you’re talking about……..
Met up with Rachael in New Albany Indiana at a quaint little microbrewery. I can say without reservation…. I asked for a Bud Light and was quickly informed they brew their own beer and Budweiser [in any form] was not available. The young lady waiting on us, recommended a beer that was “a lot like Budweiser”. After sampling said beer – I can tell you that the young lady – has apparently never drank a beer in her life. The next couple of suggestions pretty much solidified my suspicions……. YUCK. I have never been much of a ‘craft’ beer drinker to start with…. today just reminded me why. I will give kudos to the place for some damn fine ‘Bavarian style’ pretzels…. although their choice of dipping cheese left a LOT to be desired.
Conversation left some to be desired and the get together didn’t end quite as well as I hoped for – but I still have hope and it was great to see Rachael. She had dropped a little bit of weight, her hair was gorgeous [when she leaves it down] and generally was doing well. Being a Cincinnati-ian….. she’s is a little out of the normal loop….. but who are we to talk when we’re perched on our tiny rock in the middle of the Caribbean Sea?
Finally back at the house, a wonderfully scrumptious dinner…. and I now sit bundled up like Nanook of the North…. trying to get my core body temperature back to where I can take my outer layer of coat off. Probably not as cold as I think it is – but to this fat old island boy – it sure feels like it…… I think I have a day out with ‘the guys’ tomorrow…… That should be a hoot……..
Good Night Ya’ll * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!
