Kenfessions: Partagas Lusitania (TEB May 08) – Isla del Tesoro Rum


Recommended Posts

I'm still not sure why the horse crap isn't thrown at the riders? Do they require dog owners to pick up the crap of their dogs? Why wouldn't this apply to horses?

Dog feces is the #3 cause of water contamination in the US. 

Anyway, yeah, I got heated reading about horse apples. We've a lot of these types here. They take up the whole road and won't budge so you can go around. 

Can't wait to finish building and be further away from it all.

Nice bit about the rum, too;)

Fantastic read!  Yep horse types think their animals can shit anywhere they want.  I mean if they are on a horse trail so be it, but a beach?  For obvious reasons I am guessing you don't crap on their beach do you?

I really enjoy your perspective and descriptive writing.  It is like I am right there with you through it all.  Thanks!

 Brill read as always Ken.

  Did you ever get to share the Tesoro with Hamlet when he came over?

hamlet was over here many years before i got the tesoro. but it would have been fantastic to be able to do so.

Great read. I have some TEB OCT 09 RA Grandes (RE Spain) that have been outstanding. TEB is something I’d take anything I could get my hands on.

Thanks for the portrait of a great day and thanks for the tip aboout the espionage novelist-  Kanon.  Ordered the book.  Been lamenting the demise of the late John LeCarre, so I am rereading a Jack Vance novel from the 70's.( A great sci-fi writer, who is not so widely known).  

Last weekend I got a peak Southern California, cigar/ocean experience- a short hike to the bluffs on the coast above Santa Barbara, and thoughly enjoyed a Monte Petit Edmundo, while my gal savored a Trini Reyes- the libations came later...some Cental Coast Pinot, if I remember rightly.

 A good Cuban in the face of the offshore breeze-nothing like it.

if you enjoy good spy novels, or just a great read, mick herron. start from the first one - Slow Horses (has nothing to do with horses). he keeps being compared to le carre. for me, only in that he has a set of characters and sets up the home base like the old circus was. also, i believe that gary oldman is also playing jackson lamb (his smiley sort of) in the movie/tv series - not sure which. which says a hell of a lot about oldman's skills as i can't think of two fictional characters more different in every way. lamb is a big fat slob and the most non-PC, rude, pisshead imaginable. 

the difference is that these are the funniest books - laugh out loud every few pages books - i can remember reading in years. have not laughed like this since carl hiassen's old stuff.
