Today, I was home early, and swmbo says the UPS guy was here with my latest delivery, but wanted to talk to me.

I went out, and he told me he had to meet me since he keeps seeing these homebrew packages !

Said he has been brewing for 10+ years, and he lives in Townshend, just 15 minutes from where I live! Heck of a nice guy. Still bottles. Specializes in mead. I am sure we will be exchanging recipes. Great converstation.

Of course, I made sure he check out HomeBrewTalk.com - Beer, Wine, Mead, & Cider Brewing Discussion Community. ! Invited him to out Ingenuity get together Oct 12th - he will be on vacation, but maybe next time.

His parting words - keep brewing on your porch ! Right on!

Let's do a little word-replacement game...

"Hey Mr. Clark, I see you keep getting packages from Adam & Eve. Just wanted to let you know I'm a bit of a sex fiend myself!"






Still happy with the UPS guy keeping dibs on your purchases?

I thought the same thing!

Not sure I want my UPS guy checking out where all my packages come from.

I'd be nervous about participating in upcoming swaps. I foresee your packages mysteriously getting lost in the mail.

Now, same situation, but the UPS "guy" is actually a 26 year old blonde woman with a killer bod?

You know what I like about my UPS guy? He's a drug dealer, and he doesn't even know it.

it is a bit difrent with homebrewing. I would be mad if he didnt say something. thats just one more person to hang out with and make beer. And if they make beer you know they are cool.
