The Slice

If you look real closely

You might be able to make out that both these bottles and the can below say "Spokane Brewery."

Why should you care? No reason, really.

But me, I get a kick out of this sort of thing. And it's my blog, though the truth is I prefer to say "online thing."

When I was a little kid, back in the steel cans era, my dad used to let me have a sip of his beer whevever I wanted. I suspect he hoped this lager sampling would make drinking seem less exotic in my eyes.

Sadly, I was subsequently thrust into a cold, heartless world where dedicated young scholars such as myself stumbled off to college without benefit of hearing those potentially life-saving "Remember to Drink Responsibly" public-service messages. I have to tell you that, as a freshman, I did not.

But that's another story.  And if you remember the '70s, there's a good chance it's one you have heard before.
