Founders DKML. This isn't beer, it is booze. Holy cow.
Happened upon it at the grocery store last week, so bought a pack. It was great to sip on sitting by the fire.
Think it is the only beer I have had from Founders that I wouldn't have again. Wish I hadn't bought a 4 pack.

Yeah, 42 does not pass the Killer.


42 is the record for HRs as a second basemen held by Rogers Hornsby if I heard right.

Okay. Still not sure what that has to do with Harmon.

Re: Simple Pleasures...

Our oldest (twins) start kindergarten today. It was fun to go meet their teacher and see the school yesterday and to see their nervousness switch to excitement. I am happy things will begin so my wife can relax a bit. I hear from everyone that moms are typically like this when the first one begins ...

Overheard at the state fair this morning, a young girl talking to I assume her sister. "We're screwed, Grandma has had way too much tap beer." :lol: Almost made it worth going.
