    This past weekend was a weekend to reflect. Recently life has kicked me square in the lunch box and just wanted to be at my happy place (cabin on the river). While there - beer was consumed. Good beer. Not a "light" to be found in the mix. Lots of beer (throw a couple of water glasses of vodka in to boot).

    Then came the victim of the pent up anger.

    If I had a cabin in the woods ....I would set up shop there and not come out for a very long time...good for you! Everyone needs some mental therapy sometimes...with alcohol...lol

    No cabin in the woods, but we DO have an A-Frame on a lake, & while I would love to sit back with a beer once in awhile, I've got 16 years, 4 months & 25 days Clean & Sober, so I'll pass. Where's my coffee cup?

    Jags, damn life continues to throw the curve balls......hope things can be patched up to whatever degree. It's all a matter of making it through another day - and beer has helped many billions with that!

    But the old happy place - especially if it involves a lot of being outside - is even better. I thought about this today when taking the doggie out - it was a lesson I learned when I was about 17, but have not taken enough to heart. That is, I really only feel totally whole (or mostly) when I am in nature. Everything else is a compromise.

    Oh, as if all that was not depressing enough - for you unbelievers, we are headed quickly toward the winter solstice - the lower energy time of year. It's quite natural to enter the reflective/depressive mode and it's also a time of year when things (health, etc.) tend to head downhill.

    No "lite" creek water allowed at my bar either Jags. I do keep a case of high gravity "hurricane" cold for those unsuspecting lite drinkers. It puts some hair on their chest with that 8.1 % alcohol content. They usually knock 3 or 4 back before it hits like a freight train.

    That looks and sounds like a GREAT way to gain some inner peace.

    Cheers!

    PS. You should have carved a totem out of it before the drinking and fire. Saw time is usually good therapy too. : )

    Sounds like a splitting headache. I've learned that between the heavy bottles to take a moment to ingest some hydration or the punishment is far worse.

    If you follow those BMI tables then almost everyone is overweight. I happen to be "normal" but I am much lighter than most I know.

    Sorry things haven't been going great Jags. Last year at this time I was getting a boatload of bad news. It seems to come at this time of year. Hope things brighten up for you. In the meantime a good brew or two will help.

    Drink your daily caloric limit. Swear off food and keep the alcohol.

    I got a cool scale that tells you your muscle weight and water percentage too - at least it puts things in perspective.

    Does it do so by sending a charge through your body?

    All that shaking is just nature's way of giving you some exercise. Totally healthy.
