Frinstance, I like the part where . . , after all the writin' and the mrtine is done ... I just set back •nd 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 flunk of lots of things, one right •fter (fee other. Usually, when I get to thinkin', I send down for some beer. Seems » glass of beer not only touches the spot but it also sort of helps tfae 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 np 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 ... wh£n 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 ant of the brewer does 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 en and on thinking and talking about beer. Probably could go on for hours. That's the way I am whe» 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.
