I turned 51 a few months back. I've noticed that some things have changed since I hit the big 50.

The friggin AARP will not leave me alone about a stupid membership (includes a free tote bag). Everything on my body hurts. I think I'm getting crankier, and I suddenly want kids to get off my lawn.

Today I got a letter informing me that I won a contest. Guess what I won? A free cemetary plot valued at $1250. I just need to call the number on the letter to qualify. Seriously?! I used to fake-win good stuff like cruises, fur coats, vacations to Europe, and new cars. Now I'm fake-winning cemetary plots? Getting old sucks.

It gets worse, but still beats the alternative!

Turned 51 last Sept. Had my first experience with gout after New Years. Guess I over-did-it during the holidays (so I was told). My left big toe swelled up and was an ass kicker. Getting old sucks. Everybody and their mother said lay off the beer. What? Are you out of your mind? Damn gout....
I'm gonna teach this gout who's boss! On my third pint right now....ouch

Well, with this cemetary plot I won at least I'll be prepared.

I think beer and coffee are the only things keeping me going. The coffee gets my heart pumping in the AM and the beer puts me to sleep at night.

Should be good for keeping ferment temps down until you need it for something else.

Yeah, and you'd better go ahead and stock up on some prune juice and ensure too old timer.
