Today’s Haiku on Wind, Henry

Henry 9 months

Colorado is having a high winds today.  Mom says its the early start of spring time (usually in March), something called in like a lion and out like a lamb.  She is hoping we will get mild weather soon.

Here is my Haiku telling you just how I feel:

  • The wind makes me bark
  • Waking me from my nightmare
  • Of chasing my tail

SomePlace Else Brewery

I love to support local businesses.

This little brewery is right in my neighborhood.  Yummy beer and friendly atmosphere.  A place I can take my sketchbook to draw and feel safe if I go alone.  Doggies are welcome but I can’t decide which of my boys to take, they are all stinkers and would pester the other customers for attention and treats.

Here is the deal:

Of course I purchased my membership, I am number 56 (born in 1956).

They have pinball, skee ball and a whole bunch of games for kids.  Bring your own food.  Check out bingo night, trivia night or one of their other crazy nights.

How about open mic night?

Skyline Chili Oyster Crackers?

My brother lives in Skyline Chile country and got me hooked on the stuff.  Thankfully he keeps me well supplied with regular deliveries.

Okay.  Skyline Chili Oyster Crackers are not your regular saltines.  I tell you there is something about them!   So I’m having some homemade beef and barley soup tonight and I open up my latest shipment of Skyline Chili Crackers and somethings not right…

I think I am paranoid!

I think these crackers are crisper and browner and just not the same!

I google it and my paranoia is confirmed!

Skyline Chili has a new oyster cracker baker.  (Say that three times as fast as you can!)

Read about it here.

I google more and find this!

Yikes, is nothing sacred?

 

Skyline Chili Contest Missed!

In September last year there was a contest for free Skyline Chile for one year.  Was I told about this? No!  Here is the proof of the contest: Link to contest !

I confess I have an addiction for Skyline Chili, thanks to my brother who lives right in the neighborhood and can eat the stuff whenever he wants!  Here is the three way, to die for, but my brother eats salads!

Granted my brother keeps me stocked up with regular  shipments of Skyline Chili, and he is a healthy eater and Skyline Chili may not be on his diet and oh my gosh I making excuses for my brother!

Anyway I missed out on my chance to win a free year’s supply of Skyline Chili (never mind that I never win anyway when I enter these contests).

Double granted my brother would’ve had to eat a lot of Skyline Chili to win me a years free supply.   Family sacrifice right?

What! Don’t know what Skyline Chili is?  A truly regional delicacy.
