Stacks of Rahr Boxes

   Posted by: MB    in Daily

Boxes at Brewery

11 April 2012

Happy Birthday, Betty Faye!
After more than two weeks without a visit to the Rahr Brewery, I decided I didn’t want to miss another event, so I went by myself tonight, for the Wednesday tour and tasting. I poured beer for a little while, and had a great time. It was a good break from mind-numbing computer work and sewing. While I was there, I saw the boxes stacked along a wall and was reminded of a photo I took many weeks ago, while the KRuMB was mostly inactive. I finally figured out how to dig it out of my phone and get it into my computer, and voila!

I also solidified a plan I hatched in my brain earlier this week. We’ve been racking our brain about just how to celebrate my upcoming natal day … it’s a big one … and since it falls on a Wednesday, I’ve decided we’ll celebrate at the Rahr!

So, next Wednesday, from five to seven-thirty, we’ll have a table “reserved” for our friends to visit with us and enjoy some awesome beer while we acknowledge my jump from middle-age to Old Lady! And, yes, the AARP card application came in the mail last week! After beer, I think we’ll drive a couple of blocks to a neat little Italian restaurant we discovered recently, called Mamma Mia’s. Mark it on your calendars … I’m only turning 50 once!

Cheers!

My Little Friend

29 March 2012

 

As I worked relentlessly to sort, restack, and just generally move stuff around in my workshop to regain enough space to work, I moved a stack of fabric I’d moved just an hour or so earlier, and found this little guy! He startled me at first, but, as most of our readers know, I am a fan of lizards, so he and I co-existed for a while, until I needed him to move again. When that time came, I got him onto a piece of fabric which I moved to a better spot, out of my way, but, as I set it down, he crawled up my arm. I decided he must not have liked that purple fabric, so I put him on a brown table top and that seemed to suit him.

 

Since I didn’t get this photo up the same day I took it, I can now report, that what I’m pretty sure was the same little lizard, showed up in my kitchen yesterday! This time I decided outside was the best relocation destination, so I put him outside in a little garden zone. Interestingly, he allowed himself to be picked up and was in no big hurry to leave my 98.6 degrees when I opened my hand. Today, we’re pretty sure we watched him scurry out from under Kyle’s car and under my trailer. I don’t really care where he decides to live as long as he eats his share of pesty bugs.

My First 2012 Sunset Over Scarborough

   Posted by: MB    in Daily

My First 2012 Sunset over Scarborough

22 March 2012

It was a full day of paperwork and emailing and workshop recovery (the process of cleaning up after a big project) and errands. And, then, I went to faire and worked another five or six hours!

As the sun was setting and I was saying goodbye to Kat, I wished for a fancy camera to be able to properly filter the light and capture the glorious colors we were seeing. But, I love the little camera I have, and this photo is about the best I could do. So, enjoy this one, but use your imagination a little, too!

There will be many more sunsets at Scarborough in 2012, but since last Sunday’s workday got cut short, this was my first.

Bottle Cap

Bottle Cap

19 March 2012

I had an appointment this afternoon with my current acupuncturist, arriving only a few minutes early, I jumped out of my truck and quickly went into the building. An hour or so later, having been pricked, zapped and massaged, I paid my copay (insurance that covers acupuncture rocks!) and headed out the door. I move a little slower after lying still for an hour, so I had time to look down as I stepped off the curb. And, there, on the ground between the curb and my truck, was this bottle cap from the Rahr Brewery! I was completely caught off guard by it—what was the likelihood? I suppose it’s possible that it actually came out of my truck … perhaps my skirt swept it from the floor under my feet, to the ground … but I certainly wasn’t aware of it. It made me smile, anyway. And I took the photo. I actually prefer to think that the love of Rahr beer is so widespread that it wasn’t my bottle cap at all.

Happy in Florida

Monday, 16 January 2012

Not so daily, anymore, is it? I have taken a break from the daily writing for the KRuMB that has lasted, quite by accident for nearly a year.  It was unintentional, and although the “freedom” has been kind of nice, the void is too great.  I miss it.  So, here I am… no guarantees right now … no solid daily commitment …let’s see how it goes. In fact, let’s see if I even remember how to attach a photo to my written words!

Currently, I am in Florida visiting my mama. We are doing our best this week, to honor my grandmother’s memory and celebrate her birthday. Gammy would have been 100 years old tomorrow. We’ve gone shopping, took a trip in the RV to see a broadway-quality show, played card games, had a few political debates, and just generally enjoyed one another’s company. My week here is passing very quickly.

As a proper resident of central Florida, my mama has decorated one of the bathrooms in her lovely home in Mickey Mouse style.  Wallpaper border, shower curtain and other accessories all display the Mouse and I, of course, love it.  For years, one of the things that has amused me greatly is a framed postcard on the wall, that depicts Mickey and Minnie at the park, and carries the printed words, “We’re happy in Florida.”  It always makes me grin because it seems to me to be a little less “we’re vacationing in FL and wanted you to know” and a little more, “we’ve retired to Florida and aren’t ever coming home!”  And, in fact, that’s very true about my mother—she really is happy in Florida and it shows!

My photo is of Mama and John at the restaurant where we had dinner tonight.  I think they are pretty cute.

Akron, Ohio

My wife and I have been in Ohio since early, early Wednesday morning in order to spend Christmas time with John & Kelly. It has been a delightfully relaxed, relatively stress-free vacation that was both much-wanted and -needed.
John & Kelly live in a hearty district within Akron that is full of fantastic architecture and niche shopping/eating. Part of that architecture is represented in an American Castle called Stan Hywet (Stan HEE wit) built in a Tudor Revival style, it has expansive grounds (what remain) and is approximately 65,000 square feet with 65 rooms and 23 bathrooms. A true architectural marvel.

This photo of John and MaritaBeth was taken near the end of our time there just as light started to fade and Christmas lights were switched on.

May you and yours, in whatever fashion is best for you, experience the full joy of this season.

Cheers.

Happy Birthday, Ed

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

Marita Beth and I woke with a leisurely start to the day, but soon settled into the same work-at-the-Rahr-then-do-something-else routine. Today, that something else was a brief lunch at Yucatan Taco Stand followed by a trip up Main Street to the Stockyards on the North side of Ft. Worth. There we whiled away the time until dinner at Cattlemen's for Ed's birthday.
While in the Stockyards, this photo was secured at the Stockyards Wine Company, a lovely little store chock full of Texas wines & beers. Did I mention that you can buy wine or beer and then stroll the streets? I really do enjoy the Stockyards.

Cheers.

Waiting His Turn

Jim Hancock, the Burly Minstrel as he patiently awaits his time on stage. My timing on the photo was good as he strode to the stage mere seconds later.
Cheers.
