It's true,- no beer tax for me this time, but it wasn't the weekend, the weather wasn't cooperating, my beer quality was low, cell phone coverage was weak, the dock was slippery. I was prepared to turn over a large quantity of beer, but I guess the planets just weren't aligned. Maybe next time things will work out better for me. I appreciate your concerns!
Take care and joy, Aythya crew

I couldn't pay the fee because I couldn't find Charlie!

It's relieving to know now that the insults thrown your direction will no longer languish unheard! :roll:
