John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Thankful Thursdays - A Vision of Thanks. "Happy Hour"

Thankful Thursdays - A Vision of Thanks. "Happy Hour"

Many of us enjoy a beer or two at the local tiki bar while listening to good music with friends. It's a great way to unwind and have a little fun as long as you know your limits. A big thank you goes out to all the alert servers and staff who recognize when a patron is seeing Sidesurf Donnie instead of Surfside Johnny.

When the happy hour band starts to look like this, be thankful when the bar tender stuffs you into a cab that takes you home. This photo may be funny but being charged with vehicular homicide is not. Save a life - Take a cab!

Surfside Johnny

I couldn't resist distorting this photo of me (on the left) playing at a local saloon. I'm sure this is how some of the patrons saw me :-) They probably couldn't tell if I was good or bad and most likely didn't care!

Happy Thursday to you, John! I'll be heading to the Gaf shortly for a Guiness and a round of traditional Irish music.

Guilty of drinking and driving years ago, glad I lived to talk about it and hopefully I taught my children not to do it.

Cab's are the way to go! I hope you'll remember me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC" and I will do the same!

 

Best regards.

Wanda - I like to play around with my photos sometimes. The results can be interesting.

Anna - Glad you enjoyed it. Let me guess - Beaujolais and Chardonnay? Maybe a nice Riesling or Pinot Noir?
