What A Wonderful Thing

Newer Older

"What a wonderful thing is the mail, capable of conveying across continents a warm human hand-clasp."

We received a little piece of home via a care package today. On our doorstep was some "Pumpkinhead" (Pumpkin Beer) from the Shipyard Brewing Company today. This came at the perfect time. Though we've been enjoying ourselves around DC, the coming fall has made me a bit homesick for the staples I've come to know: Red Sox games, crisp mornings and this local seasonal beverage among other things.

Thanks mom! Only the best mom in the world would individually wrap each beer in bubble-wrap and then place them all in a ton of Styrofoam peanuts, ensuring that not even one "trooper" was lost during the journey.

If you haven't tried this yet, I highly recommend it. After testing numerous "pumpkin" beers extensively, this is the top for me. It don't get much better on a chilly night on the porch.

    I had one last night, on draft, at Boston Beer Works. Boston misses you, kind sir. Come visit sometime.

    Yeah, I guess - you folks have minds like steel traps and good hearts. "Pumpkinhead" is indeed the name of the beer, Momma T didn't make that one up. Usually Dad's the one to make up the names, remember? :oP

    Glad to see "all" made it safely to your new home!! It's funny you added the pumpkin!! I wanted to add a few small ones.. however there was NO ROOM - my main goal was the beer!! Enjoy!!
    And you will have your wish with the chilly nights.. Fall is here!
    Love you.
    thanks for giving me credit about the name.. I have lived with the man for many years and as you all know I've picked up a few "words" now and then!! Yikes!! :)

    I will have to try it! Didn't realized you'd moved! If it makes you feel any better it was about 95 here end of last week.
