Nice yard!!!

I had a job that took me to military bases in the South. My work day was early so I was free before 15:00. Without fail I would go find some local Q and at almost every place they wouldn't even ask if I wanted tea; I'd get it automatically.

There's something about tea in hot weather, something bitter or maybe "astringent" is the word I want. .It's like drinking aspirin.

Dang that was some good Q, too. I learned a lot.

It can actually get too hot to drink beer!? I’ve yet to experience that.

I will say it’s never too cold to drink beer in PA. In fact, beer left outside in the snow magically tastes better than being in a fridge.

What about beer in a frosted mug? That will work right?

Well there was that beer party in an Ohio farmhouse when the temperature was something like -3F and my mug of beer would develop these long fingers of ice on the surface if I didn't drink it fast enough.

I remember a time, as a very young man, when I was standing 4hr watch in a 135°F engine room. First hour you'd quit sweating and your shirt would crack from the dried out sweat salts. TRUST ME, it was NOT TOO HOT for beer!

The hottest I've been in was in southern Arizona, hitchhiking in 113F. It was like walking around in a hair dryer.

Three hotspots for me. That ship in SE Asia, a fire aboard ship (I was a firefighter) and under the pre-heat grate of a kiln that finished iron oar pellets.
