Yesterday my menfolks helped me with the research for my “Top 10” article. My husband was sent home from work early (something happened with the power), so he went to this low dive that’s on many people’s Top 10 burgers lists. He brought burgers back for our lunch. I wasn’t all that impressed, though people had waxed poetic about the crisp lettuce and perfect pickles. I’m not the much of a burger fan.

Anyway, he liked the low dive. It was smoky and had pool tables and cold beer, so after we had discussed the burgers, he went back out there. Happy hour lasts from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at this place. It’s very popular with men.

I asked the choirlet about my beer and burger lists, too. Unfortunately, practically everything we come up with is on this one street in the town where I live. Part of that may be that many of the surrounding counties are dry. Not that liquor isn’t served, but it’s hard to find a really good beer joint in a dry county.

Anyway, I gave #1 son my tentative lists, and he is charged with the task of confirming them this weekend.

#1 daughter is coming up today, on her way to see her sister. Maybe she’ll join me for a final reconnaissance.
