I stopped in at a local pawn shop today ( love those places) to look around. Got a GREAT deal on a new camera/ brief case. I saw two little glass milk jugs in a carrying case and asked what they were and what he wanted....two 1/2 gallon milk jugs ( like they used to deliver milk in with the paper tops) in perfect shape for 3 bucks ( plus 3 for the brief case) No idea what I will do with em but they are kinda neat looking and maybe I might do a gallon split in em lol.....Anyway I asked if he ever got in BIG glass jugs or bottles and he told me he was at an auction last night that had several big glass jugs that looked like what you put on a water cooler...said the auction was less than 5 milesfrom my house and that some guy bought all of em for 4 bucks each!!! Just my luck.

Thats ok. Its probably a really lame beer. He's probably looking to perfectly make his Keystone Light clone.

You're still one up on him!

That's the best time to kick, you can't kick back if you're laying down
