Blame it on the Beer Biz

Drawing at dinner to entertain my son..taking what I can get.

Damn, I haven’t made work or gone fishing for a good while now.  Consequently, nothing much to post here.  It’s not for lack of want or desire, it’s simply a result of being busy at work.  Kind of a lame excuse for an “arteest” I know, but, it is true.  See the thing is, I like my job.  I like it a lot.  I work in the craft beer industry, and I work for a really good company doing important work (so I’m told).  So, sometimes I pour myself in that direction, and that’s OK with me.

All that said, art and fishing are like eating meat and veggies – gotta happen to keep the train rollin’.

I just threw up some new sheets of paper on the wall and started monkeying around.  The fishing may not come as easily, but I’m sure I’ll find a free afternoon somewhere.

In the meantime, here are some photos I took while I was in Germany for 10 days…working.  Prost.

    I started to feel bad for you and then I read the “I was in Germany for 10 days” bit. Like my brew buddy who has to go to Germany for “work” every once in a while, I really feel for you guys. Ha! Glad to hear you’re in the craft beer business, not a bad place to be. Congrats. I think there’s still some good days left to get the line wet. At least I hope there is. Cheers!

    btw…Was that the Cobra I saw in the picture drinking Helles?

      Thanks Scott! Yeah, I was hoping to get out one more time to WI for some trout fishing, but I don’t think it’s in the cards. Steelheading looks unlikely this Fall as well. The game plan right now is to try and chase some pike and muskie on local lakes and rivers through October, then hit a couple warm water patches on the Mississippi through the Winter, sprinkling in some SE MN trout fishing in early 2014. I had a couple unreal pike days last September on a central MN lake. When temps dip, the Esox get unruly, active and aggressive. SS leaders for the next month!
