HNT - Made In Hamilton

I'm enjoying a little bit of time off between jobs. Yeah, I know the heat is a killer, but I've actually been enjoying it. Kicking back, spending time with the family, reading, laughing, floating around the pool and enjoying a beer or (speaking of heat) enjoying watching Francine float around with a beer logo on her arm.

Francine and Brava - both delicious and both made in Hamilton

I pulled this photo out of my archives from a few summers ago. I'd been sitting and drinking Brava while watching my gorgeous wife float around the pool when the idea hit me. She humoured me by letting me stick the beer label onto her arm and then taking a few shots. I had this thought of a billboard campaign to help sell Brava, which is brewed by Hamilton's own Lakeport. But like the dozens of ideas that fling through my head daily, I never followed up on it.

More proof that the average writer doesn't need any more ideas, just time to work on them, dammit. Or proof that sometimes it's okay to just sit back, relax, enjoy a sight that's pleasing on the eye, and not work.

Both you and the lovely Francine have a great break. I wish the sun would come out in the UK again. I promise not to complain about the heat again. LOL

Happy HNT to you both ;)

I hope you've been enjoying the downtime. Like I needed any more incentive to be consuming more of Lakeport's delightful suds. Shame on you.

Of course the current slogan of great taste, fair price really complicates looking at the picture. You know that right?
