Army of Dachshunds, represent!

He's a booze hound and a card shark!
Meet Flash.  He's 14 years old, acts like he's 2.  He's part dachshund with a bit of terrier and a touch of Satan.  And I love him. 

He is a lover and a curmudgeon.  He's aloof but needs to know where Gary and I are at any given point in time.  He'll give you the business and then give you some more.  He was also a notorious arm humper back in the day!

Tonight we're drinking Ithaca Beer Company's Excelsior! White Gold. It's a wheat ale that's a bit hoppy but mostly malty. I'd describe it as feisty on the palate - lots of great flavor. At 8% ABV, it's not for the faint of heart but tame compared to some of my favorites.

I really wish Wegman's had more variety from this brewer as I would love to try the Excelsior! Le Bleu or Old Habit. Maybe Santa reads my blog and will surprise me! I've also had Ithaca's Apricot Wheat. Tastes like heaven in the summer!

I have some work to do...I'm one glass in on a 750ml bottle.


  1. I think Flash humped my arm on several occasions, notorious indeed....this is a great blog, I look forward to reading both of your posts!!!

  2. First Flash wanted me to tell you he misses you and not just your arm! Second, I'm glad you like the blog. Feel free to share the links with whoever...we need readers so we can land our big book/movie deal! (just kidding...sort of...)
