F'rinstanco, I like the part where . . . after all the writin* and the routine is done ... I just set back and think about things in general. (Oh, yes, that's part of the job, too.) - Doesn't matter much what I think about. Sometimes I concentrate on one thing. Sometimes I think of lots of things, one right after the other. Usually, when I get to thinkin', I send down for some beer. Seems a glass of beer not only touches the spot but it also sort of helps the thinkin' mood along. It's such a peaceful, friendly beverage. Sort of honest and human. And it tastes good. I like to hold my glass of beer up to the light and look through it. That beautiful, golden-amber color kind of fascinates me. Reminds me of the sunny barley fields •where beer gets its start. After all ... when yon stop to think about it... beer is a simple, natural thing. I read somewhere that all it's made of is good, wholesome farm grains and water and a little yeast... with hops for flavor. Nature's process of fermentation and the age-old art of the brewer docs the rest. 'I guess that's why beer is so wholesome. It really is the beverage of moderation. You just can't imagine anybody getting into trouble drinking a few glasses of beer. Well, here I am ... going on and on thinking and talking about beer. Probably could go on for hours. That's the way I am when I set back and get to thinking about things. And by the way, taking it easy and "just thinkin'" is fun. Try it sometime . . . quiet and comfortable like.
