A Nice Thing Happened To Me

Between the rain and the sun today, I found time to check in the digital fridge, looking for a snack. And there it was, right on the center shelf, next to the last bottle of Guinness:

Someone was kind to me today. Merrily Down The Stream gave me an award! Stop by her place, and check it out, say hello. An award for something good, that's a lagniappe, for sure.

Happy Wednesday, one and all.


  1. Ah, bless Merrily...she knows how much you deserve this. And have earned it. And want it. And paid for it...oh wait...sorry. No...I mean...

    Go back to the fridge. Have a Guiness for me....

    love you

  2. Oh, that's one I haven't seen before.

    Congratulations! If you run out of Guiness, I have some single malt with your name on it.

  3. I'm sending you over a case. you deserve it.

  4. Last Guinness?!! Holy hell!

    That's no good at all. I'll start a batch of Kentucky Breakfast Stout right away. Let's see....

    18 lbs of American Two Row Barely
    2 lbs of Black Patten Malt
    1 lbs Flaked Barley
    1 lbs Carapils
    1 lbs Smoked Malt
    1 lbs. Chocolate Malt
    Should I put some Bourbon soaked Oak chips in the fermenter?

  5. Congrats! Now, restock the Guinness - running out of that is just scary.

  6. Nice award. Have a good day.

  7. Gimme a call once cIII is finished.

  8. Well deserved, sir! Today, though, I am mostly drinking scrumpy. Plus it's St George's Day. Happy dragon-slaying, everyone!

  9. That's a what? Lagniappe???

    Be back after I google.

  10. Well, I'll be darned. You learn something new every day.

    I don't remember that last time I got a Lagniappe, though. . .

  11. Congratulations on the award Mr.Gumbo. Have a drink on me :)

  12. That award seems to perfect for you! Congrats! You need to make a run to the beer store, young man! Wait... can you buy it in the grocery sotre and walmart and stuff? I live in PA and we CONTROLLED BY THE STATE! We have to go to the Beer Distributors and some bars can sell beer by the 6 pack. but no more than 2 6-packs at a time! dumb laws.

  13. he last bottle of Guinness? Gasp! Get thee to a packy.

  14. Congrats, if anybody deserves it, you do. Hope you're doing well these days.

  15. Braja: Shhh…it was a “gift”, hehheh. I shall have 2 Guinnesses, slainte!

    Jan: Thank you. And some single malt would be lovely.

    Mo: Both. Or either. It’s all good. Although draught if I had to choose just one.

    VodkaMom: I think I love you :)

    cIII: I’m sayin! That Breakfast Stout sounds tasty…save me a pint or two, would you? Hells to the Yeah on the Bourbon Oak chips!

    Anna: Thank you! I’m on my way to the liquor store…

    Syd: Thank you, kind sir.

    WSM: Thank you, m’lady!

    Captain: I’ll send a car over to pick you up.

    TBF: St. George’s Day? Dammit, I forgot…

    Lizspin: Lagniappe, lagniappe, lagniappe…love that word.

    Branwen: thank you. Perhaps I shall have two…

    Joanie: Alas, we have to hit the liquor store.

    Me,You, Ellie: Yes, ma’am!

    FL: Why thank you, my good lady. Hangin’ in there

  16. i just randomly came to your blog and read the word "guinness" and now i'm drinking one.

    so, thanks.
