Well, I understand.  We did share a few moments this past week.  It was real.  And special.  (But I'm not sure about "real special.")

It worked.

What exactly is rusty cognac? 

Extra-aged in fine rusted steel casks, pasteurized in the Fires on Lake Erie, and left to sit with no attention for 2 decades...

Or it's the admiral's way of making fun of my Rust-belt city.

We sat on the front porch and watched our neighbours blow up hundreds of dollars. Good show. Much better than the 50,000-plus-attended city fireworks display or the rival 50,000-plus-attended megachurch's fireworks display. And no traffic jam.

Front porch sitting

North v. South

North: Cool breeze, can see mountains

South:  Feels like oven, humidity so high it forgets to rain, couple in that blue haze and you can't see three blocks down the street
