I Often Wonder What The Brewers Drink

Or is it Vintners? Vernors?* (Ale-8-One, maybe?)

There I was, shopping at Giant Home Improvement Store -- 'cos it's "make more bookshelves," time for some reason I'm not even real clear on, and it was my idea -- and there, close by the entrance, an alarm company's van is parked. His security system sometimes goes off with a warning as people walk by....

You may wonder, is it a polite chirp? One of those show-off alarms that runs through more and more of its repertoire the longer you linger, louder every time? Maybe the headlights and taillights flash?


It's a great big dog, who barks and leaps up at the window if you get close.

So, a tip from a guy who'd know? On car-alarms, at least, go organic!
* Now owned by one of the Big Names (and arguably the kewlest) but still darned good.

Vernors! Detroit's greatest contribution to mankind! Well, aside from Faygo. And Ted Nugent.

I can get Vernors here on the Upper Left Coast, but have to mail order Faygo.

The Vernors around here has definitely changed and not for the better.

Are they still claiming 4 years in oak barrels over your ways?

Oh, I miss Ale-8! There's a drink I haven't had in a decade and some - wonder if it'll live up to the nostalgia and sun-drenched muggy memories?

Sounds like the guy installed the alarm system with defense and offense capabilities!
