Happy New Year (I'm redefining the calendar here). The calendar simply represents repeating cycles, it's much like a merry go round anyway so it doesn't really matter when one jumps on or off. All we need to do is just take the first horse or other handy vehicle that comes around. I hope you're doing well. I don't see any poetry here but I've had another long dry spell myself. Lots of distractions of late.
Good morning! Today is my birthday which means I have survived yet another full orbit of Sol. Thank you for the comment on my recent effort. As to whether it is "finished?" I'm increasingly prone to let the various readers complete whatever thoughts may come to mind if not comments thereto. Poetry can easily become, "This is the song that never ends" if you're a Lambchop/Shari Lewis fan you'll understand the reference. Let's hope there are more and better poems from Lloyd in the future. Merry Christmas!
Thanks for the comment on Guinness. As a favor to my sister, I located and bought a case of the new Yuengling Hershey's chocolate Porter. I ended up keeping a couple six packs and gave three bottles to friends.
I like dark beers but usually those towards the Guinness Extra Stout or a strong double bock, bitter and around 8%. I also like the Dirty Bastard Scottish style Ale also around 8%, but I'd now have to drive 80 miles or so to find it.
The Yuengling Porter, even with the chocolate, is a bit too mild for me. I've found if I add a pour of bourbon it becomes more drinkable. ;) Cheers!
