Well you would have to know my friends. Some of them (he being one of them) will come over for a cookout. I say to bring a dish to pass and I'll buy the steaks and taters. Needless to say I will end up with about 8 bags of chips and now that I brew I have 8 bags of chips and no beer.
I brewed a Heff for him a few months back. He wanted it for a party he was having. So I bought all the stuff for it, I brewed it, fermented it, and I bottled it. That's a lot of time amd money to do this. He has yet to pay me back for the brew.

Man, I'd give you $20 just so you wouldnt shoot me.
LOL no, we took one of his vest, put around a log (about 12" dia) and shot it from 50 yards. It went thru both sides of the vest and the log.

I just sold my brother in law 12 gallons of brew for $50. Said my brew was better than any commercial swill he could get for that price. Hmm, thanks. I didn't even like those particular batches.

Word.

There's a local goat farm that, because of stupid gubmint regulations, can't sell its goat cheese to the public without investing tons of $$ in infrastructure, which they can't afford. So they come to the farmer's market and give the cheese away...then there's a big poster with their story of government tyranny, and a donations box below.

Hehe, Or you just sell high-quality used cardboard bottle carriers!

In fact, if he buys one from you, you might just be so grateful that he becomes your friend and you, in a totally unrelated way, might just give him a sixer for free!

Really not that fast. 2:06:46

I had started training for a the full 26.2 miles but my training stopped at 18 miles due to work and I did not run for 3 months. So I just ran the half and did not care how fast I did it.
