Cheap and Cheery - June 2014

Grape and Gourmet's monthly open house for beer and wine tasting. I love this event. It's homey, friendly and I always find something I like on the tables. In addition to the pouring they have a spread for cheese, crackers and dips. We dropped off some of Sloane's Smoked Gouda Dip from The Creative Wedge. I bumped into Barbara earlier that day at the Old Beach Farmer's Market, she asked if I would take one with me to share. I love that stuff, they're lucky it even made to a table. 


Memorial Day

I get the day off on Memorial Day, like most people. First thing I thought of when I woke up was my Grandfather. He was a veteran if the Second World War in Patton's army. He's no longer with us but he has been a big influence in my life. The time I spent with my grand parents was great. I miss them both.

Marleigh came down for the long weekend to relax and it was nice to spend time her. He saw the new X-Men movie, cooked-out and watched Mad Men! Today we're at the beach. The Ft. Story beach is low-key and relaxing. The weather is great and there is a nice breeze.

After we left, I stopped by the local grocery and picked-up some snow crab legs that were on sale. We picked them for dinner then Marleigh left for her place. Very nice day.

Makes me wish I would have put in my 20 and retired from the Army. Spend the Spring/Summer with days like today.

Lots Going On

The past few weeks have been crazy--Chayce leaving for basic training was the big thing. In the area there was a lot happening too.

American Craft Beer week just passed with all the events associated with it. The big Virginia Craft Beer Festival happened and I went skeet shooting for the first time (I did that before I went to the beer fest.)

Putting some stuff together I've been neglecting and I'll have it up soon!

Oh! Visiting O'Connor Brewing Co.'s new spot this Friday too!

Stay tuned.
