Kicking Off the Season...

Our kids arrived late Friday night, which put everyone in a good mood, especially Gracie who is constantly looking for an overnight guest that she can bunk with.  As unpacking commenced, daughter Roxanne pulls out a specially packaged gift from the east coast, individually bubble-wrapped bottles of Yuengling.
Oh what a proud and happy father I am to have raised such a talented traveler!
As someone pointed out on Facebook, this really is like the old days when you couldn't get Coor's east of the Rockies (or was it The Mississippi).  I've been to the web page and researched this.  In short, the two breweries (one in Pennsylvania and one in Tampa) only distribute to Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Alabama. 

Instead of coming up with a screenplay for the Yuengling version of Smokey and the Bandit, I just need to figure out a way for more people from the east coast to visit Texas, a 12-pack at a time.
