Summertime and the living's easy

The next round of travels approaches! Utilizing the Honda I shall tour the Northern Rocky Mountain states. The top objectives are: Yellowstone NP, Glacier NP, The Grand Tetons, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument and Laramie, WY to see my dear friends Rick and Fox. Of course the actual route and logistics are only in their nascent stages, yet I foresee a very fun road trip ahead. But enough about coming attractions.

Since my last post July has given way to August, which is already on its way out! This summer took a while to start, but seems to have no problem ending on time. July is beer month in Portland, and I mean on a city-wide scale, not just my own tastes. There was a beer festival, or some beer-related event every weekend of the month. Like all such mass events the experience was mixed. Good beer, bad beer, crowds of people, sunshine, live music, expensive food...the usual festival lineup. I must say, looking back I think the general level of work and play is why my summer went by in such a blur.

Well, I must return to the world offline again. Next post may even have pictures, assuming I can get this hand-me-down camera to work right.

Until then,

A long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to drink was nothin but cups of tea.
Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mops,
and he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

The Curtis bar, the James' Pub, the Hole in the Wall as well
one thing you can be sure of, its Charlie's beer they sell
so all ye lads a lasses at eleven O'clock ye stop
for five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops 1 2 3 4 5

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick,
the kind of lubrication to make your engine tick.
40 pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
Its only eight pence hapenny and one and six in tax, 1 2 3 4 5

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

The Lord bless Charlie Mops!
