Welcome to the club. Even you young pups can stop on by as long as you mind your manners. There may be snow on the roof but there's a fire that ol' diablo would covet in the furnace so watch out!

Hello all you Moonshine Lovers, Happy Memorial Day to you all! Well its warm its muggy and its spreading a little rain here and there. But i'm not gonna let it ruin our day, good food, and good company and a jug of shine and I'm set I think, hey geezer can I come to the demolition derby too I love those crack ups and the faster they go the better. A little shine and you won't feel a thing! Bj if you were up here I put and extra steak on for you, like I said anyone is welcome! And you are right its all in how you say something, after working at Briggs and Stratton for so many years I worked with all types ladies if you don't like the way some people talk walk away why even acknowledge those who talk off the wall! But if its a good compliment take it, you can always take something and make a mountain out of a mole hill. Anyhow I hope this finds you all well and relaxed enjoy!:)

Wakin' up to severe clear skies, crisp mountain air at 67 degrees, a gentle breeze, and absolutely no agenda for the day. Mrs BG has ta be in some training classes this week, but I'm gonna just vegg for a couple of days. It's been a long time since I wasn't runnin' around like a chicken with its head cut off, and I'm gonna enjoy every minute of it.

As for tellin' a woman she has a nice spread, it's all in the delivery. I haven't been beaten up toooooo badly yet,so I'm workin' on polishin' up the delivery. Heck, if ya make it a compliment, great things can happen.

Pass the jug. I gotta nurse it whilst I veg!

Careful there, BG. Tellin' a woman she has a perfect spread can get ya into trouble.

Goin' to the county fair today to see the demolition derby. I'm gonna enter it, too. I'll hot wire a car in the parkin' lot, then put it back after the event. No one will be the wiser.

Chris, ain't it kinda canaballistic to eat chicken. They're kinda close on the family tree...

BG, tell them bluehairs you travel with that all of us at the clubhouse wish 'em a Happy Labor Day.

Howdy geezers. This afternoon, I had oven roasted chicken breasts, w/crispy skin, grilled corn on the cob, creamy macaroni salad and sun tea! I snuck a little hooch in the tea. After that, homemade cherry cordial ice cream, and if that wasn't enough, a piece of watermelon. Then I napped, and just wasted the rest of the day away. Time for a nightcap and a shot of hooch. YuMMmY!

Great idea, Magster - Geezers Ninjas! Hiiiiii-ya! Time for a nap.

Dammit Chris, that ball o' string was only 100 miles long. I got lost in southern NH an' it took me hours to row the truck across a lake to get back on track.

I'm jes' mad about saffron, saffron's mad about me....they call me mellow yellow (quite rightly)...

Ticket? Hmmm....yes! Officer Clyde of the Gastonia Municipal Police Dee-partment is great at tickets. I'll go see him. Be right back.

You can make your own rules and we can have mudding with our cars, and rafting and then oh my the possibilities are endless . Quick geezer do you know any one that can print up the tickets, hey Chris do you have any more ideas to add to our own festival. Hey maybe we could have a long rifle shooting contest oh lord help me I think my brain will melt down I have so many ideas. Big time BBQ and then some home style music how about it guys? Is anyone game for a new adventure this is the best shine I have made yet here try it. I will call this my brain hooch pass it around okay. This is safron moonshine so a little goes a long way! Watch out for the g-men they have been lurking around especially at night I have seen them!:)

Good morning BJ and the Mrs. Just don't get "Rocky Mountain high", going through the mtns. You don't need to spend any of Labor Day weekend in the hoosegow! I'm hearing you, on the corn kernels there. Bread crumbs wouldn't have helped much either, but the birds are happy... Notice my tame white dove is happy this morning also?

I hope geezers ball of string holds up. Testing... testing... 123...
OH, I forgot to give him this empty tomato can to tie on the other end of the string. Dang it!

Mrs BG is a great nagivator and we didn't get lost even once in the 680 miles we drove yesterday. 'course the interstates make it pretty hard to get lost. We should be seeing the Rockies in about another 50 miles or so. Always good to be here out west!

Chris, we unrolled a ball of string behind us but it ran out at 522 miles. I guess the manufacturer's warranty really doesn't mean much in this case. We dropped kernels of corn the rest of the trip so far so we should be all right. I just cain't figger out why all those birds were followin' us.

Pass the jug. It's time to prepare for another drivin' adventure!

I'm headed out on a road trip myself, BG. Only 150 miles, though. It's through the Green Mountains of Vermont and across New Hampshire to Manchester VT. I'm takin' my old truck to my son's house and a car show. Oh, and to deliver some hooch as well. I may need someone to rescue me in WonderTub at some point.

Troll, age is mental here, not really of the calendar type. Grab a jug and tell us of your geezerish adventures.

Road trip tomorrow. Gonna head west for 10 or 11 days. Gonna haveta take a couple of extra jugs along, just to keep Mrs BG happy.

I think there was a rock band named "Barking Ducks". They never got much attention and are now disbanded.

I think I'll sit on the porch and do monkey tricks to entertain my grandchildren. Then maybe later on, bark at the kids that go by. And before dusk, light some snake fireworks. I always love the way they make a black stinky mess in front of the clubhouse.

Thanx for that emergency airdrop geezer. We had six passengers last evening and four of them believed in Miracle Hooch as the elixir of the gods. That resupply saved the day for me. Fortunately the revenooers spotted another cruiser that was being operated in a haphazard manner and spent considerable time checking them out.......thereby leaving us alone.

I'm pretty sure we oughta get rid of that bedpan. It portrays aspects of things to come that I'm just not ready for. Life is still very good and I don't need these kindsa clouds on the horizon.

Pass the jug. Here's to GEEZERS everywhere!

Good Morning Geezers

Welcome back, Maggie! You're a sight for sore eyes ('speshly these old ones). geezer's right, that Miracle Hooch will perk ya right up. But if you'da used it at the first hint of trouble, there wouldn'ta been any trouble. However, yer hospital adventures sounded worthy of clubhouse shenanigans! BRAVO!!! I applaud ya!

Mebbe ya needta fire up the Aux still, also geezer. My banjo pickin' buddy's wife came along on last evening's cruise and the two of them really made a dent in my stocks of Miracle Hooch. And, no, the banjo didn't sound any better after all that consumption. I'm down to Mrs BG's emergency jugs, and I gotta get a resupply before this evening's cruise. Perhaps an emergency delivery in the WonderTub.........

Who put chocolate cream pie in this bedpan???? Kinda smells like it's spoiled..........<<<<Automatic Exhaust Fans come on>>>>

Pass the jug. I gotta drink to Maggie's recovery!

Why is there a bedpan and two forks on the coffee table? Never mind, I don't want to know.

Mags, you're lookin' a bit pale. Have some Miracle Hooch an' you'll perk right up.

Well, gotta fire up the still. BG's been runnin' a lot of people up an' down the river on Riff Raft an' they drink up a lot of our product.

Glad they didn't keep you any longer, maggie! We missed the woman's touch around here! Don't mind the dirty laundry, geezers nephew is supposed to by tomorrow and do the wash.
I used to like to hide a piece of pie in the bedpan in the drawer next to me for a late night snack. Until the nurse found it one evening. HEY! It was sterilized! Lol...
Geezer went out for some chips, and BJ went out for some dip.
So, its just me and you, kid.
Could you pass that hooch jug over?

Well it took a while, to get over this here virus but I'm back! Now What did I miss and who did what to who, and last have you good ole boys been behavin? Hey guess what I was so bored I took apart the remote for the bed apart and if you switch the wires it really messes with the nurses. They really had trouble figuring it out, so when they left the room I switched them back they came in with and electrician and he told them that there was nothing wrong with it! It really took them a while to figure things out and I didn't offer any one any help. So who's the smart one now? Can't tell me what to do without some repercussions!! So once I was home they threw a party when I left with my shine, the docs were feeling no pain best medicine everrrrrrr!:)

Good Morning Geezers

geeze, I think those two sized jugs fit the bill perfectly. Hooch from the large size can be easily transferred to any other container. And the ladies and laddies are already carryin' the small jugs in their various concealable conveyances. Hooch in kegs would just mean we lose greater quantities when the revenooers raid, and 'sides just think of the expenses we'd have in procurin' many other containers.........we'd haveta have a fund raiser..........

Had a grand time at the raft off yesterday. I brought along a second guitar for one of the ladies whose guitar is outa commission, and while I knew the songs, she took me to the schoolhouse on pickin' the guitar. The weather was great, the food was spectacular, and the Miracle Hooch was warmly welcomed. Fire up the still, geezer, my supply is pretty depleted from that party and we have several new devotees.

Pass the jug. My thirst is overwhelming!

Let's put it this way, Chris. I have a divorce lawyer on retainer...

I think I understand your name now, BG.

Relics, we've been puttin' our hooch in two sizes of jugs for a long time now - large an' small. In the interest of providin' the best an' most useful containers for our customers, I think it's time to expand our bottlin' line. How 'bout "purse jugs" for the ladies, and guys who still wear fanny packs? An' for parties, how 'bout kegs? Whatchya think? Got any other ideas?

Good thing we installed those high capacity exhaust fans in the club house during its most recent rebuild. The aromas eminating from those depends gets cleared out quickly!

I gonna take Riff Raft about 14 miles downstream to raft off with 6 other boats this afternoon. A bunch of us will bring our instruments and have a BlueGrass Jam while anchored out in the river. They provide the food and I'll provide the Miracle Hooch. Oughta be a lotta fun!

OK geezer, when ya get on Riff Raft for a river cruise you will be required to wear a PFD. That may save yer life if ya fall overboard. Usually we only require kids under 12 to wear them but I really don't wanna fill out all the paperwork associated with that type of incident. I cain't believe you'd survive long enuf to be a geezer if you were stupid. Possibly misguided at times, but not stupid.

Heck, Chris, we get lotsa free entertainment when geezer has a snort or two, so I think we oughta make more available to him, 'speshly since he makes some of the best Miracle Hooch this side of heaven!

Pass that jug. geezer and I are gonna have a snort!

C'mon, geezer, you know yer always welcome on Riff Raft, no matter who else is along! Heck, ya might even meet someone ya like. My new guests included an 86 year old banjo player, his son-in-law and 14 year old grandson. We had a great time seeing wildlife and birds, river traffic including barges, towboats (both harbor tows and line boats) and excursion boats and barge loading with grain at the ADM mill. A very full 3 hours! They were quite appreciative of a well stocked fridge and liquor cabinet! We had a wonderful cruise.

Nope, Chris, no ice bucket challenge. We don't do "idiocy of the day" crap just because others think it's cute. geezer, the parade float came off real easy. We hosed it down and all the soft stuff just washed away. The bigger parts we threw into the revenooers "lurking lanes" as we passed and crossed them. Took a couple of days, but it's removed and may actually slow down the revenooers when they start gettin' uppity again.

BJ, be careful who you let on the riff-raft. Those goberment people can gum up the works real fast. Are you going to have an "Ice Bucket Challenge"?

Fire up the Aux still, also, geezer. I need to lay in a big supply of Miracle Hooch on Riff Raft. I'm plannin' to get some Gasbuddies out for a river cruise and I've heard rumors that they like to imbibe. They'll be carefully screened so no steenking revenooers can slip in amongst them and upset our operation.

Haven't seen Maggie for a couple of days. I hope she didn't have a relapse and head back to the quack (sorry Chris) house for more doctorin'

Did you see the show, Chris?

Well, we have a problem with the still. It appears a squirrel got into the mash tank and clogged up the outlet pipe, so unless somebody climbs in there an' pulls it out, we're down for the count! Volunteers?

Geezer, that WAS us! I'm sure of a previous life, and yeah, this fits the bill (no pun intended)! This was back in prohibition, and... remember we couldn't get "big AL" to deliver the hooch in time for the parade, because of his cousin, Elliot! Elliot was always throwing a monkey wrench into "big AL's" shenanigans!
Pass the root beer, er ah I mean HOOCH.

Good Morning Geezers

What's a History Channel? Is that some kinda perfume? I thought y'all just dabbed a little Miracle Hooch behind yer ears. 'course I recall the time JJ ran outa disodorant and she tried Miracle Hooch in her pits. She sure was popular with coots from near and far!

Pass the jug. I gotta get started with the day!

Coots, there's a show on the History channel about a group of guys like us! It's called Dark Horse Nation, and this group of guys run a brewery in Michigan have projects and situations that remind me of, well, us.

They're a younger version of us, and they have a heck of a lot more energy and, well, smarts, but they're us.

The episode I watched last night was eerily similar to our recent parade float fiasco. They built a float for the Christmas parade and they wanted to shoot candy to kids along the route. Sound familiar? Instead of shooting the candy out of a horse's butt, they tried to adapt a salt spreader for the purpose. Of course, in true Ol' Geezers Club fashion, it didn't work too well and as the father of the main character said, "Ow! Jesus, I just took two in the nuts!" Instead of hooch, they brewed some root beer for the float, too. A poor substitute, if you ask me.

Catch an episode if you can.

Howdy Geezers

So sorry to hear you're under the weather, Maggie,(like Chris says...better than under the ground) but doc geezer's hooch will fix ya up better than all those drugs. Just keep pluggin' away.

Chris, if it's a speeding ticket it don't have ta be fixed. Just ignore it. They hand them out like candy just to keep busy when they ain't got nothin' else to do. Ya don't have ta worry about it till they start handin' out warrents. Keep drinkin' Miracle Hooch and all those legal problems will fade away!

Pass the jug. I'm gonna take Riff Raft out for another cruise and I gotta get ready for it!
