My older brother Jim published this photo of me on the bus the other day and it reminded me of the weekend it was taken. My brother Ed
and I had the honor of receiving an invitation to visit my brother Bob
and his wonderful wife Debra
for the rare 4th of July when Ed's family went to the Ozarks and Ed stayed home. Of course, getting an invitation to go play at Bob's house is better than a visit to the Queen. We both joyfully accepted, knowing Bob will have a project for us to do. Such as build this bar
or this waterfall by the pool (cost me a big toe nail)
Well let's see, July 4th, in Florida, of course it is going to rain!! It was too wet for any projects so the three of us did the next best thing, we started drinking. Ed and Bob are both confirmed beer drinkers while I prefer the stuff in the blue bottle in Bob's picture.
At Bob's you are always outside by the pool and bar. He even has a flat screen TV out there, along with all the other cool stuff you see in these photos. The really fun part is he makes us pay for our drinks, with money he provides us and keeps in an old cigar box behind the bar!!
Anyway, the three of us sitting outside in the rain, in Bob Lee provided raincoats and getting schnockered and solving the world's problems.
Ed commented that he was having a blast even though the only part of him that was dry was his crotch.
Bob promptly reached over the bar and poured a beer right in Ed's crotch.
Ed and Bob love to tell that story and I have heard them relate many times.
