Drinking Local

And yes, I love Legos!

Especially Imperial armor.  Silly as walkers are.

I also notice that an Ogre Mk V is just visible.


  1. I also drink a lot of local beer, wine and spirits. 20 years ago there were only a few options, and nothing distilled. Now there are over 20 breweries operating in the area, countless wineries and several distilleries making a variety of spirits. It is pretty awesome considering in the 1970s it looked like all of the breweries were going to consolidate down to only 2 or 3 megas and there was a danger the few holdouts of independents would get gobbled up by the megas. It got pretty close to that as companies like AB/SAB/Stella and Miller/Coors/etc and the Pabst group swallowed up most of the smaller national brands. But then the craft brewing revolution started it and became a real thing. Thank goodness!

  2. Glad to see someone drinks like I do....

  3. Is that one of the glow-in-the-dark Ogres, or just a regular Ogre?

    And Legos, nothing wrong with Legos as an adult. Perfectly fine. Lego Movie father lego infatuation? Yeah, a little over the edge...

    1. That is a glow in the dark Ogre. I've got every ogre and fencer they've made in glow in the dark so far. Sadly, I don't think that they're going to make more GITD versions.

      I've loved Lego for a long time: https://mcthag.blogspot.com/2017/12/my-oldest-lego.html

      Lego also helped me get through a couple of hard drafting problems.

  4. Worst laager set up ever. A couple of motivated Rebel sappers could take out that whole element

  5. I had Lego pirate ships in my barracks room in the early '90s, when I was in Uncle Sam's Big Grey Canoe Club. I never did get any comments from room inspections, though...

    I did get comments from the XO when he came in from a night on liberty in Singapore and found me driving a Lego truck all over the ready room. I was supposed to be on phone watch; don't get many calls to the ready room on the 2400 - 0400 watch in a liberty port yet some poor schmuck has to sit and wait for it to ring. I've got a picture of that Lego truck on the edge of the flight deck with an F/A-18 with war shots on the wing tip pylons in the background.

    Fun times.
