Default Strange but true home brew story!

BACKGROUND: i SENT SOME RHIZOMES FOR A MIXED SIX TRADE. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED.
It is a story in the making. Talk about timing. I had two hot chicks 30s (first day) working for me looking like Daisey Duke in the feild ( i live in nowhere) and along comes the FEDEX guy with a package. Daisy 1 runs up to him with all of the slow motion you see on baywatch and gets the box. I told them it was beer and they were like "right" We were just trying to get the wife to do a beer run (12 mi each way and she was not happy with my choice of help). I opened the box and it is a fantastic retirement tale of opening a box with $20 on top and Good beer on the bottom at just the pefect time. She did not do the beer run obiouvsly, The archery team from Pa is going to KY for the national championships. L donated 20 for it (in which my son ranked 75/5230 in the state) has a donation, the wife is really pissed and retirement is good. Why did I not do this when I was 30? The fed ex guy wants to work for me also.
Thanks,
I LOVE HOMEBREWERS!!!!!
Any of you get to Halifax Pa call me!

I will take pics of the help in the summer when they can swim in the pond and they are more covered up.
They (the hot ones) are now committed to working for me! Retirement is good, but I am becoming a dirty mid age guy.
L, You are my homebrew god!
The beer is good also. and the gals get ugglier by the bottle! They cant get better! Life is good!
All I can say is what goes around comes around.

you're obviously drinking the wrong kind of beer.

Just do not have your beer held hostage by the wife or you will never get anything halfway done!

So you traded some rhizomes for some beer and $20. That's what I make of it.

That's exactly the opposite effect that happens if you're doing it right...

Cheers!
