Ups and Downs

After a rough week at work (put is nearly 70 hours in 4 days) I finally got a chance to get out and bird this morning. I drove up to Palo Duro Lake north of Spearman, Texas and was able to  get a few nice photos of some Northern Bobwhites. It’s amazing what a couple of hours at the lake on a beautiful fall morning can do for you.  Reality struck hard, though when I got home-plumbing problems. The day ended on the positive side, however, as the plumbing is all plumb again and I tasted the beer I’ve made for the holidays (a spiced brown ale) and it was splendid. It’ll be really good with another 2 months aging. The plan is to give it away as Xmas presents if there’s any left.

Here’s the Bobwhites
