Default Mini-beers are just wrong

My wife brought me a 24 pack of mini beers. She said, "they looked so cute!"

They are just wrong. Two sips and they are gone. Again... wrong, wrong, wrong. I am going back to my little water (look up the Russian word for it) for the night.

No wood working for me today. Earlier, weather station said it was 88 degrees F but felt like 100 degrees F. Welcome to Texas. Going to have some cool libations the rest of the night and relax and probably do some modeling.

What is everyone else working on while I enjoy my little water and tonic?

Anyone have a suggestion on what to model?

Nah, just means you drink more at one sitting. When they are gone, you buy 24 regular size and keep on drinking more at one sitting.

Only 88? Get yourself a big fan, and you're good to go. Got somewhere over 120 - in the shade, in Nam, and a fan at night was sufficient.

I'm working on a Bubba mug of coffee.

Model a life size coyote for Barry, he's got turkeys, and that should scare them away nicely.

I like it. A coyote it is.

You have to remember I am delicate. I was in the US Air Force. We are a special breed that requires air conditioned suites and cappuccinos in the morning. Bringing destruction up from up high.

Now...hot. That reminds me of Qatar in June. How anyone can live there is amazing to me. It is da...dang hot there in the summer. Especially with sand storms.

Having experience steamy hot in the South (Forida, Lousiana, Georgia, Alabama) our high desert heat (95 yesterday) is very dry. so our swamp cooler turns the inside into a beautiful day. To consume suds, I have to shoot it into my stomach via feeding tube. In fact, that sounds like a good idea just now.

Our ranch house has a pretty good overhanging roof in front, which crates what the Spanish settlers in California knew, set up a breezeway and enjoy the natural cooling air flow that makes life in the hot places bearable. Anyone who trained at the Marine Corps San Diego camp knows how pleasant the old buildings breezeways are.

Now, where's that bourbon?

One of the reasons I left. Air conditioning wasn't that common back in those days and summer nights could be more miserable than some of the days. It can get about as hot here as where you are Tom, up to about 105F in the south end of the valley but at least the nights are cool with temps in the 60s and sometimes down in the 50s at the base of the mountains where I live.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Delicate indeed. Thought I'd read something about umbrellas.
Army Regulation 670-1 (Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Equipment), paragraph 27-27, reads: Females may carry and use an umbrella, only during inclement weather, when wearing the service (class A and B), dress, and mess uniforms. Umbrellas are not authorized in formations or when wearing field or utility uniforms.

Male soldiers have never been authorized umbrellas, although Air Force personnel may carry them.

...and yeh! Mini beverages of any sort are just wrong! SWMBO has been buying Canada Dry Ginger Ale in those pathetic mini cans; what a waste of money, and Aluminum! (She of the 'Green' obsession.)

Air Force men don't need umbrellas. The sun always shines on us and rain turns to rainbows before reaching us.

In my career worked with Marines, Army, and Navy. All standup guys and gals. Funny how the least amount of contact was with the Marines and my most touching memories are from that branch of our military. Quick to anger, quick to laugh, professional, and dedicated (loyal).

The coyote is not going well. Looks like a Corgi. I think I am going to call this effort a failure and go back and start learning canine anatomy.

P.S. I drank almost all the mini-beers and the trash bin is almost full of beer bottles. Complete waste of bottles. It was more bottle than beer. Completely gives the wrong impression!

We have about a 30-35 degree temparature drop at night, starting usually in the late afternoon. The dry weather most of the time makes evaporative cooling practical up to about 95 degrees. Hottest place I've ever been was New Orleans one summer. Got so hot that after about 15 minutes, I had to grab an air conditioned cab and escape to my hotel room. One more minute in that heat and I'd have collapsed. Had some drinks and some truly awful catfish that added to my grief. Don't know how people back East put up with that weather, although winter in Florida is actually very nice. Vacationed in the Keys a couple of times and in St. Pete area and really loved it though.
