Cold medicine is my friend.

Being sick is no fun. And I have one doozy of a cold…
Cold Medicine
It seems like I always get sick when I get back from holiday. And it’s making me feel a bit sheepish today…

International House of Pancakes.

Believe it or not, I have never eaten at an International House of Pancakes before. We had planned to eat at the new IHOP at Newport Pavilion when we landed after our redeye back from Phoenix. We landed twenty-five minutes later than scheduled and then it took forever to get our luggage. So long story short was that we just ran out of time on Wednesday for breakfast. But we had plenty of time today…

Awesome stuff. It’s been forever since I’ve had pancakes or a Belgian waffle. And I had forgotten just how delicious they are. Light and fluffy and sweet with syrup. The eggs were delicious and the sausages were perfectly done. We’re going to have to go out for breakfast more often! πŸ™‚

Canstruction 2015.

We stumbled across another one of the 2015 Canstruction exhibits. This one was in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency downtown. And recreated some of Charley Harper’s famous bird artwork

The Ohio River.

This afternoon we walked down to Yeatman’s Cove at Sawyer Point Park to check out the current height of the Ohio River. I kept getting all sorts of notifications and alerts while we were out of town that the river has been creeping up well over flood levels

70,000.

I just uploaded my 70,000th photo to my Flickr
Sonoran Wht Chclt Ale
That’s a lot of photos since October of 2006! πŸ™‚

Incidentally, my 70,000th photos was of these three six packs of the incredible Sonoran Wht Chclt Ale that will be making their way back to us in April. Also hiding behind the Sonoran is a six pack of the delicious Orange Blossom Ale Wheat from Papago. Mmmm, beer.

Stay hydrated.

I ordered this Tall Boy Pint Cup from Cool Material a little while back…

And today, a new water cooler was installed on Deskey’s sixth floor just a few feet from my office. I love it when a plan comes together. πŸ™‚

The Elusive Cow.

We found ourselves across the river in Bellevue this evening. And we stumbled across The Elusive Cow. I remember when the Cow was just a booth at the Tuesday Strauss Troy Markets on Fountain Square. I knew they opened up a bricks and mortar place on the other side of the river but I was never sure where. Well, now we know…

It was one of the best BLTs that I’ve ever tasted. The bacon was perfect. Not too crispy.
