MUSHY'S MOOCHINGS: BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN

BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN

Ron and I took in Bailey’s Sports Grille again Tuesday. I had my first good round of Killian and Bass in ages (it seems) along with some “hot honey” chicken wings.

Afterwards, we enjoyed our first Macanudo (he had the Maduro and me the Gold Label) in an even longer spell. Man, was it ever good to be back in the saddle.

I have now slept in my own bed twice since the operation…still a bit of a hassle, but at least I’m laying flat out for a change! And, I have another two weeks of the brace before physical therapy begins. That can't be fun either!

Oh yeah, here is a shot of ol’ Mushy all cleaned up…even tied the tie myself! What do you think…clean up pretty good for an old man, huh?

Oh man, sounds like a fun time! Especially the beer and wings!

Good times. You should buy stock in that place, or have your own special table with a plack.

BRUNO said...

Ya' look almost presentable! Now, truthfully: Was that pic of you BEFORE, or AFTER, the visit to Bailey's???

Marie said...

You look down right distinguished.

Good that the mobility is returning! Some people make a big stink about ties, but when I lived in a cold climate it was a nice way to secure the neck from drafts.

EC said...

Well don't you look handsome!

WTG on having a great night out, and don't worry, physical therapy will be done in no time. until then enjoy your freedom!

I miss beer.... pout...*

Great to hear of the good times had...! Sounds like a good boys night out.

Love the look! Wow! Hansdome indeed!

Good to hear that you are back in your bed too... hope the physical therapy goes by fast and as smooth as possible. Good thoughts going your way.

;)

Lived in Tennessee some years ago for a very long time. Never could get that Vol fever, but I do love those Tennessee Titans.

Ron Southern said...

You're like me in that respect, I guess; you think everyone's worried about what you look like!

DariDonovan said...

Thanks for coming by both my blogs, hope you will stop in again! And the new you looks awesome, I mean't to add that earlier. :-)

Mush, Going to be coming through the Volunteer State on my way west in a few weeks... Why don't we meet up, have a few frosty-cold adult beverages and swap war stories?

Suldog said...

You look way too respectable to be paying any attention to what someone who looks like me might have to say :-)

Mushy said...

RT - coming through the Knoxville area?

My war stories are probably quite tame compared to most, but I like to tell them anyway.

Think you could find Bailey's Sports Grille...I'm always talking about?

FHB - Yeah, need some stock in Bailey's, but I am a mug club member and usually sit at the same table.


EC, Sugar Cat, and Dari - thank you so much for the kind words.

Chuck - you should drop by the pub too!

Bruno - Made before actually, the day of the funeral to be exact.

Ron - Yeah...too much attention to detail I suppose.

Suldog - Not as respectible as I may seem.

Haven't really checked my route, but I'm sure Knoxville is on my way out I-40 heading west. And I'm Irish remember? If there's a bar, I'll find it! And I'm also a 12-year member of the American Legion and I'm certain there's a post near there. I'll email you when I get closer to leaving.

Ugh. That reminds me: I need tobuy a new monkey suit. Could they make those things any less comfortable!?

Oh, to be a woman and not have prescribed fashion norms. Chicks can show up to work in almost anything and call it a fashion statement. Men wear suits. Where's the equality in that?

Rebecca said...

Looking mighty sharp. I'm loving that goatee;)
