I had a brief email dialogue with the officer who snapped the photo that forms the backdrop for the title bar above. She told me I was welcome to use the image, and added parenthetically that she just didn’t get this whole weblog thing.
And I kind of understood – there are as many different bloggers, styles and formats as there are different kinds of people. Or maybe a trifle less, call it n-1, where 1 = the hopelessly-computer-illiterate type.
I think the Good Captain would like this one……………………………..just a guess
Among The Joshua Trees
As I posted earlier, here it is!
This was procured at the Stater Bros Market in Ridgecrest on Wednesday when taking The Missus to DMV to renew her driver’s license. We now make it a day with a stop at Wally World, Stater Bros and the KFC before heading back to Casa de Sharon y Glenn in beautiful California City.
This Thunderstruck is quite hoppy with a clean finish. I got it on the condition that I let Missus ORPO have the bottle. It is painted and not a paper or one of those clear labels. The stencil treatment is what makes Stone products a bit pricey. I do love what comes out of that awesome brewery in Escondido!

I have been slowly getting through a great biography of Charles Lindbergh. Think you know pretty much all there is to know about Charles Lindbergh? Pretty much what most of us know is what the newspapers and magazines told us. Pioneer across the Atlantic, of course. Because of his fame, his family suffered terribly with the murder of his baby son.
Recluse who moved to Europe after his son’s murder. Admirer of the German buildup of aerospace technology. Tainted (wrongly) as a Nazi sympathizer.
