And Give Thanks

Stopping for a beer
Amid mad preparation
I have to marvel

20 pound turkey wrapped in bacon

References: It’s Thanksgiving day in the US and that means enjoying family and food… and all the liquid refreshment that allows that to happen. I know I have a lot to be thankful for when I am staring at a 20 pound turkey completely wrapped in bacon and ready to go into the oven. I will try to take an “after” picture when it is finished cooking, but in my house something like this doesn’t usually sit around long enough to do that.

Happy Thanksgiving!

City Life

Throwing old beer cans
At the rats in the alley
’til they throw one back

References: Yeah, I had to move out of that neighborhood.

Urban Beer Garden

Sitting and sipping
in an urban paradise
of your own design
