No, I have not scheduled ‘A Bender’ Monday and Tuesday next (March 19-20, 2018) but the notion does ring a small bell – does a two-beer day constitute a “bender” anymore?

Be well and stay safe, y’all! J

birds go silent

beckons me with a warm promise:
tuesday, all bets off!

but I demure – firetruck pull
and green brew – ho hum!
Duke, Kentucky, Florida
and fine German dark call me!
