Colorado Gatorade Time I Quit!

Rain is great but the place gets overrun with weeds and tall grass. I got a mini ranch so itís a chore. No cattle right now so no lawnmowers. FRIKIN stung by wasps had a gallon of blood taken by mosquitoes and stickers stuck into my hide. Bitten by fire ants and lost 5 gallons of water through sweat. I like bicycle mechanics a lot more than mindless land work. The rest of the work will be done tomorrow morning itís time for some Colorado Gatorade. I told the others BYOB in others words BRING YOUR OWN BEER. Ok rant over Yíall have a great weekend!

Looking over the contents of that fridge is an adventure. Choosing any random two and chugging them could lead to an adventure.

your 'colorado gatorade' (hadn't heard that before, it has always been 'colorado kool-aid') has never seen one second of colorado sunshine. it was brewed in texas.

Fixin to put on the work clothes and apply layers of number 50 sunblock then shower in bug repellent and finish this nasty work. Sweat out the Colorado Kool Aid or Gatorade. No bike rides this week but I’m getting plenty of exercise through barbaric manual labor. I’m on the wrong side of 40 and recovery ain’t what it use to be. Can’t find any strong kids anymore and I would pay 10 bucks an hour for a few days of help and in cash. I guess times have changed but a kid could make 150-200 for a few days of hard work.

You could afford to pay the kids more, if you bought a bigger, cheaper box of wine.
Maybe give them a little free time around the fridge, they'd work for nothing........

I would let em have a few beers as long as the kid worked hard. But I don’t have to worry about it because they would rather play video games and lounge in the ac. I’m going to detox my system with a good sweating.

You will change youíre mind when it is 125 degrees and you are thirsty. I get so much hate about Coors but that is what everyone drinks here because of the heat.

Nothing wrong with Coors as a "lawnmower" beer. But any light beer is actually water pretending to be beer.

I have seen many people sitting on their riding lawnmowers swigging a Coors Light. Yup, lawnmower beer.

Under those circumstances, I might have one.

I’m going to let in air out for a few days then turn it back on. But the fridge is probably about 30 years old. Good thing it only had drinks and ice and no food products. If it is dead for good it will make a great storage compartment for bike stuff and other things ..
