Proper words in proper places. We get to choose our pleasures, not our griefs. Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. Whatever gets your attention gets you. I'm getting another beer and there's whiskey in the jar.

Have a great day!

Change turned into unchanged. Forever turned into until I got tired of you honey. Quality never goes out of style and fashion must go on. It's nice when it happens to go off. The goofs will outperform the goons every time. So stay goofy kids.
