    Today I found out that my wife's truck is a junkie!

    Wife drove me to my Dr. dealer where I get my oxy's from and on the way home she turns into the driveway where Tarzan lives. Yea, I call him that because for the last twenty years I have never seen him with a shirt on or a respectable haircut.

    He runs out of the door and the wife pops the hood latch. He scrambles to the right side under the hood attaches what looked like a couple of hoses and then waits. He then unhooks said devices and slams the hood down and goes over to the driver side window where she slips him 20. She pop's it into reverse and leaves.

    At the stop light I look over at her and say, What was that? She quickly replies, "Just Snowball's fix". Now she names all her stuff, vehicles included, and her 2003 Chevy 1500 that she bought from me (what you think I would give it to her?) in 05 is named Snowball because it's white, a no brainer, except for me right? Seems this has been going on every two months now for a year or so, the habit that is. She is convinced that it is cheaper than having the AC fixed. Personally I think she likes to see Tarzan without a shirt.

    Anyway I got my oxy's so what me worry? All is just fine right now.

    Rolling Rock did become a hot brand for a while.

    Last time I was back in North Central PA (around two years ago) the trend was Yuengling.

    We always called Rolling Rock, Cat Piss which at the time fit it pretty good.

    I am amused how the local and regional brands don't seem to get the love from the locals. Case in point, living here on Long Island the local start up, Blue Point, had a love / hate following from many here. Many look at the stuff as Meh! Why pay more just because it is local brand? More so after InBev bought them. Yet I went on a business trip to Austin, Texas and they couldn't get enough of the stuff. Go figure!

    Since we are nostalgic about bad beer, I will mention my college nemesis. It is/was called "Brown Derby" and was cheap. It tasted like carbonated "something" with a dash of burnt transmission fluid. Ah, good times. No, probably times blurred by Brown Derby and frequent urination.

    Hey.. hey.. hey. Don't forget the Floundering Fathers. Let's do this reunion RIGHT. Make manila GREAT AGAIN.

    Too bad Durante fcked up the Philippines or I would suggest trading some of that friggen gold for a cold San Miguels and a filipina. Get those pipes cleaned. You know what I mean?

    Works better for us old curmudgeons than Marvel Mystery Oil on a '56 Packard.

    Ok,,,, ok.. I know it's tacky. But knock down [quite] a few of these cold brews and you think you died and arrived at that friggen muslim paradise:

    And make sure you start a thread with all the HOT JO details while you're still sober enough to log in..:2 thumbs up:

    I'm way out of practice. I used to write short story's 25+ yrs ago. Made a few $$ but never enough to live on, so I took up something else in life. The base is true meaning we did stop at Tarzan's to get a shot of Freon. He supposedly fixed it a month ago and so the shot was for free. All the rest was pure imagination.

    Summer job 1981, collecting trash in the Santa Cruz mountains with two buddies, and what do we find sitting in one of the cans, but an ice-cold 6 pack of Moosehead!

    We rang the bell of the mansion and asked the guy if he intended to toss the beer.

    He told us he had put it in the freezer to cool it, forgot about it and now it was ruined; mumbled something about the molecular structure.

    Best two beers I ever drank!

    I've put beers in the freezer before to cool them fast and have forgotten a few in there. Most of the time it kills them dead, carbonation all gone, but Boston Lager in the cans is still pretty decent after you let them thaw out a bit. It's magic stuff.
