Gay’s dad is here visiting. Had red (strawberries), white (homemade whipped cream) and blue (blueberries) pancakes for breakfast. Worked out. Watched Tour de France while the kids played with Legos. Drank a beer. Barbecued burgers and ate dinner. Set off fireworks with the kids. Put the kids to bed. Watched the Seattle fireworks on TV. That was my relaxing 4th of July.
I have finally cloned Fuller’s ESB, my favorite beer! English crystal malt, Simpsons Dark Crystal specifically, is the key. It’s July 4th and I’m free from my dependence on beer from England.
