We stopped in Friday night at a “pop-up pub” in downtown Lansdale with Andy, Lindsey and Willa. This is Willa’s first Big Thing photo with Grandpa. Both of us were pretty excited (well, maybe one of us was more excited!)

In 2011 we visited Philadelphia for Christmas. While there we visited the new location of Keystone Homebrewing, which is Andy’s store of choice. I had been to the old location a couple of times, it was located in an old house and it was jammed with products for the homebrew crowd. This new location has all kinds of room with more products available. I didn’t expect to find these large items. This threesome of images taken at Keystone Brewing during our visit were lost for a while, I’m glad I found them. I did think about buying the glass, what an excuse, “Officer, I only had one glass of wine.” Do you think that would work?
This was the 2nd image taken in Manitowoc, Wisconsin after taking the ferry across Lake Michigan. The Cedar Crest cow in front of the dairy was the first. This in questionable as a Big Thing but since I’ve downed a few Bud’s in my time and I thought only fitting to add to the site.
We were on our way from Indianapolis to the cottage Up North in Michigan and stopped to see my Uncle Ed in St Johns, Michigan. We went out for lunch and then downtown to find some Czech pastries. We missed out on the pastries since the bakery closed at 1pm, but these was a celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the St Johns Fire Department. We came across this big Miller Lite bottle right there in downtown.

It was a HOT and sunny day in Tulum, Mexico. We had walked out to the Mayan ruins, poked around for a couple of hours and then walked back. I was feeling pretty wiped out. When, lo, Deb said “look at that will you.” And there it was, this big Corona bottle. So I went into the park store and had a couple to cool down. Hey, Karen, I bet if you drank this whole bottle of Corona, you would get up and dance the Macarena.

Deb and I drove to Columbus to see the Crew play DC united and the phenom Freddie Adu. This was a birthday present for Deb, we spent the night there and it was a lot of fun. On the way back we found the highest point in Indiana. What a thrill!
Here’s an example of timing. Monster Beverages was having their Grand Opening sale in Glassboro, NJ when I spotted this inflatable. Without camera or photographer at the time I wheeled in and asked if this beauty would still be up on Saturday. After a couple of strange looks and consultations I found out it would.
