Quoted from swampfire:
I can’t really tell the difference between a Merlot, a Cabernet, a red Zin or a Pinot Noir.
Back when I was 12 or 14 my Grand Dad up in Dawsonville gave me some muscadine wine he made.
THAT STUFF WAS AWESOME!
On road trips I have stopped at winery's and purchased a bottle of their muscadine wine.
They have all tasted like crap.
Not sure if my Grand Dad just made awesome stuff, or my tastes buds just got hooked on cheap beer.
And I am sure someone will read that and think that was awful giving a 12 year old wine.
Those people should stop reading this post right now.
Thinks were a lot different when I was young, there was no such thing as a DUI.
I personally even knew police officers that had beer while working.
I confess my first alcohol ever I was 6 years old, and it was one of those little Miller ponies at a fish fry. (I think they were called ponies, that was a long time ago).
My Dad was self employed in construction, and it was fun to grow up in all that.
Dad was in his dump truck a lot when I was young, and everyone was always laughing about how in his ac unit in the cab, he had beer stored in there and it was always ice cold.
Dad was always easy going, and you never knew if he had any beer in him at all.
My uncle on the other hand, he was very cool when sober, but when he drank he turned into a ass.
I confess I am glad my uncle got a DUI in later years and stopped drinking, because it did not agree with him.
People that knew my Dad and uncle would compare them to Archie Bunker, and Barnie Fife. (Dad was Archie).
Anyway, next time my girlfriend starts acting crappy I am going to start calling her out, instead of me being me, and being easy going while the crap builds up and me and ticks me off big time later.
She was all over the place Sunday, but since she has been fine.
Sometimes I am just too easy going for my own good.
And the main thing she was bitching about was the fact that Sunday I was in a lot better mood than normal, and I was wearing a Hawaiian shirt she had never seen, while at the same time I have not been wearing the Hawaiian shirt she bought me for Christmas.
I have to keep explaining to her, that with stuff going on that we never go anywhere, I am saving the good Paradise Found shirts that cost 50 bucks for when we do go out again, and I am just wearing cheap shirts while not going anywhere right now.
Sorry guys, I know some of my sentences are way too damn long tonight, almost paragraph long.
And I confess if you want variety in your game room, Golden Tee has been awesome, gets played every night for at least one round.
And the new Big Buck Hunter arcade I do not see going away ever, it is awesome. It costs a lot more than Golden Tee, but if you are looking for variety, it would be hard to top.
And I confess I kind of always wanted a air hockey table, but my girlfriend says she hates those, and that actually works out good because I am out of space.
And back to the stupid crap with my girlfriend, she got weird about a shirt she has never seen me wear:
I told her to look in my closet and she will find about 60 Hawaiian shirts she has never seen me wear.
Way back when I was young, I knew this one dude that was very successful, and he told me a story about how he had to stop drinking, because when he did he would just go to the airport and wind up somewhere and not remember anything.
I confess that I am not that bad, but anytime I go to the beach I like to walk around with a cooler full of beer at night, and shop for Hawaiian shirts.
I only have about 75 Hawaiian shirts right now.
As soon as it is safe to go out again I am ready to hit the beach again.
I hate to shop, but I love to be at the beach having beer and walking around shopping for shirts.
And the pic is of my favorite shirt, getting the boat ready to go do some night fishing now that it is finally cooling down outside.
And my avatar is a pic of my boat that went wrong, and got too close, and I said hell yeah, this is different, and I still use it.
