Thirsty Thursday and My Top Ten

Hello again and welcome to Thirsty Thursday and My Top Ten.
It's been a hell of a week, running rampant at work trying my best to do things right and cover for people out sick and after awhile it takes a toll.  I'm a pretty easy going guy but sometimes I can bite.  So if I offended anybody this week I apoplog.........no screw that I yam what I yam!

Beer anybody?  I have been a bit overindulgent this week but it has been fun.  Sunday, while grocery shopping, I came across a six pack of beer named Moose Drool.  Crafted in Missoula, Montana by Big Sky brewery (I have been to Missoula and it is very cool) I chuckled at the name and Momma said try it.  So I put it in the cart and we took it home where I placed two bottles in the snow.  A few hours later I headed out to the garage and popped a top on one of them.  After a nice long pull off a snow covered bottle I began to smile.  This is a fantastic beer.  Toasty, caramel with a rich after finish with just the right amount of hoppy goodness.  I was astonished and made that six pack last until Tuesday.  I know, I know what restraint I show.  So Wednesday came around and it just happened to be the worst day of my crap hole week so I thought I would have a beer (Moose Drool was on  my mind) and headed to the same store, different town, to pick up another savory six pack.  Nope, didn't have it.  Sullen scumbags!  So after browsing for a few minutes I came across new Holland Brewery's Cabin Fever which is another Brown Ale just like the Moose.  I have had New Holland's Oatmeal Stout and that was number one GI, so I guessed this one would be as good.  I picked that up and headed home.  It was good, not Moose Drool good, but good.  Strong too.  6% and 5.5 beers later I was headed for bed cuz I was......tired.LOL.
Tonight I figured I had had enough craft beer for the week so I picked up a 9 pack of Miller Lite pints emblazoned with the Red Wings logo.
That leads me to now.  Top Ten time.  As always good or bad you decide!

#1 Moose Drool beer is my new religion  (like you didn't see that one coming)
#2 Have a date with the tax lady tomorrow  (if we don't get much back she had better be HOT)
#3 Down sized my chainsaw from 20" to 18" ($92.17 seems like it would be cheaper to go smaller)
#4 Punxatawney Phil saw his shadow today  (My varmint rifle won't shoot all the way to PA)
#5 Ordered air bags for the springs of my truck (should be able to haul more wood now)
#6 My backyard is a mud pit  (if that little bastard saw his shadow then why the hell is it so warm)
#7 I got my garden catalog in the mail yesterday (my spare bedroom might just turn into a grow room, no not like that you potheads)
#8 My Dad's Birthday is in two days (if you see him tell him HB)
#9 I'm going to get out my bow and arrows on Valentines Day and shoot someone in the ass (that should effectively end that holiday for me)
#10 I am so ready to hit the woods and inhale some two cycle exhaust (No there is no "program" for that)

Have a great night and if you see a moose..........


  1. The name Moose Drool is enough to make me stick to my Heinekens! Ewww.

  2. Punxsutawney Phil seeing his shadow only means there's six more weeks of people leaving their Christmas lights up.
    I had a beer last week called "Trogenator." Have you ever heard of it? It was a raspberry-flavored beer and I wasn't too crazy about it. So, I switched to "Harp."
    Followed by an orchestra full of harps.
    Yep. Saw Jesus.
    He was drinking a Trogenator.
