Back in Black (& White)

I have not been taking a lot of black and white photos recently, but when I spotted this rusty truck hidden behind a tree, I decided to go back to an old friend. 

Not an Addict

It’s not a habit, it cool, I feel alive.

A brief history of my relationship with booze, over the course of this blog.

Empty Seats

As the winter starts to fade, sports fans start to think of baseball.  Each Spring it is a fresh slate.  Any team can win it all.

Baseball fans tend to be very Optimistic.

‘Twas the night before, the night before Christmas, and all through the mall, people were everywhere. 

The Drinkingbird

We had an interesting day yesterday. As many people know, my wife and I enjoy taking adventure walks in the city. We usually start with a vague plan, and then just let the day and our feet guide us. 

The plan yesterday was haircuts and oysters. The plan quickly changed when Maureen discovered her Saturday appointment was for Sunday. And since our oyster plan was not scheduled to open until 4, we had to fill some time.

After some walking and a couple stops we found the gem of the day. The Drinkingbird.  Craft Cocktails, cheap beer, and a WLS soundtrack right off the Silver Dollar Survey circa 1975. 

I had the Tennessee Sling and Maureen enjoyed a Washington Island. Both were very tasty. 

I followed that up with a Schlitz and a shot, just a very reasonable $5. 

Unfortunately we needed to head on our way, but not before we grabbed a couple books of matches. Sure, you can’t smoke in bars anymore, but the matches were a great addition to this throwback bar. 

The rest of the night did not go nearly as well. Overpriced food in very small portions, and an accidental spot at a bar showing gay porn. 

As always, it was an adventure.

I think the festive activities of the past two days have caught up with me. I finished my 10,000 steps and took a quick picture of the back of Santa. 

Now it might be time to rest my eyes for a minute or two.
