are you serious?

so i got a phone call from the Little Rock Airport.

apparently the luggage with a six pack of beer we threw away at O'Hare made it to Little Rock after all.

Only lost two beers.

what do you know.

thanks to kevin for picking up the goods and the pics!

Three Floyds...finally.

I finally was able to try the Alpha King.
After leaving the first six pack in an empty suitcase in an O'Hare trashcan. It's a long story.
Shannon and I are late travelers.
We had to consolidate two suitcases into one carry-on.
The casualties in this escapade were six bottles of beer and one 11 year old suitcase that has traveled the world but reached the end of its journey.

The Alpha King is pretty good.

No power.

You can't see it but there is a small wire down in the middle of the road. It's been down since about 8:30 monday evening. Cops are still waiting for ComEd to show up and do something.

UPDATE 8/7: so, as i was walking up to the house last night, the cheers i heard coming from various folks up and down the street informed me that the power was back on. Nearly 48 hours with no power makes me thankful to have it again. And...apparently they knew nothing of our downed wire (despite our calling it in several times) until they were doing other repairs further west and someone asked if they had repaired "the one down on wolcott".
