Marriage 101, Lecture 787: 12 steps


Me: You need a beer with that [buffalo chicken sandwich from Oscar's].

SH: No.

Me: Why not?

SH: Since I'm trying to be a responsible husband, I don't drink beer before I go out to drink beer.

Fortunately, SH is not a heavy drinker, despite the 300+ bottles of wine in the basement. Actually, that's why we have so much wine: he keeps buying it but does not drink it all. It would have taken him a good while to accumulate enough bottles to duplicate what Fred Smith (not the FedEx guy) did at his concrete sculpture park. Heck, even Fred had to have a tavern.

I remember seeing this place WAY BACK when we traveled to and from Duluth (early '60s).

He must have used more than beer/liquor bottles. In that photo of the guy on the horse, the BLUE glass looks like it could have come from old electricity pole insulators. But someone with more info will have to verify that.
