The Chris-Craft and the cocktail hour 

I would have posted something on Friday, but I was too busy cruising around an Adirondack lake in my cousin's 80 year-old Chris-Craft...

The cocktail hour

No, I did not choose the Rolling Rock. I brought my own Pilsner Urquell, outside the view of the camera. Yes, I offered to share.

In other news, I relearned today that my mountain biking skills have a lot of room for improvement.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: A more knowledgeable member of the family reports that the boat above is not a Chris-Craft, but a Hacker, and that it is 87 years old.

I am glad you explained the beer.

What would Wayne Campbell do?

Seriously, what's wrong with Rolling Rock?

One of the few beers I don't like is Budweiser.

Don't scratch the decking with that salsa bowl....

Don't become a beer snob now TH.

Nice to see you went with the blue corn chips, which I prefer. What kind of salsa?

My dad had one of these little gems that he docked on the Hudson about an hour above New York. Beautiful piece of Americana.

I'd love to see more pictures of that lovely craft. I've been holding a set of plans for an 18 foot, mid-engined runabout to start building when I retire.

Rolling Rock is very good ON TAP. In the bottle it is the most skunked beer in America.

"In the bottle it is the most skunked beer in America."

Sorry to hear that, it was one of my favorites years ago.

Nice boat . . . I have had a Rolling Rock or two in my day, but as Pilsner Urquell is my favorite beer, I would have definitely enjoyed the day.
