Growling Good Time :o)

Kind of a quiet, but very pleasant day today.

Sheeba (bastard kitty) came in at 0830 to make sure we were awake :o)

A spot of coffee for me and Lipton Green Tea for the Birthday Girl. We lazed around on the computers, watched Senator Kennedy's funeral service. Ted Jr. made a very moving remembrance speech, and Patrick did a nice job. Then it was President Obama with the eulogy, I think he showed proper reverence, humility, and poise - he is such a great orator.

Then it was a quick jaunt to Big League to get my hairs cutted :o)

When I got back home, we decided to head up to our new favorite spot in Mishawaka, Granite City Food and Brewery, and had appetizers (flat bread pizza and a quesadilla), a couple of Mugs ($3.45 for a 25 oz brew), and then ordered a couple of Growlers to go. A Growler is a 2-liter container of their nicely brewed beer. That converts to 67.6 ounces, or a little more than 5.5 beers. The refills on Tuesdays and Thursdays are only $5, so that makes it less than a $1 per really good beer :o)

Hope your Saturday is nice, and Sunday even better.


  1. Yay, Growlers--grrrr! Thanks for a fun day!

  2. Sounds like a good day to me...except funerals are sad, but the food and brewski part sounded good. ha.

  3. Hi Ken,
    Sounds like fun ... nothing to growl about!

  4. Sounds like a wonderful day! I, too, was moved by the eulogies and memories at the funeral and memorial service especially the ones you mentioned.

  5. Glad you had a good day for Beth's special day!!


Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
