Bourbon, A Bastard, and Birds.



Many have whined about the lack of bourbon coverage on this blog over the years. While I do drink a lot of it, and it is a sensational and most inspirational spirit, this is a birding blog...if you want to see closeup photos of alcohol for some reason, please try Instagram or Facebook, where crushers of pints and cocktails abound.

What no one has accused me of is the lack of bastards. I know a great many bastards, though only in the loose sense of the word. They appear here regularly. However, I am very committed to bastards...I have a true bastard girlfriend, whom I love very much. In fact, we just made our own bastard daughter together, out of wedlock! Her name is Annabelle, she makes cute noises and likes milk very much. Elijah Craig and Sibley are there for scale. I doubt she will ever want to be a birder, and that is totally fine...her job, for now, is drinking milk and doing cute shit. Oh, and sleeping, hopefully she will excel at that.

I finally did it...bourbon, bastards, and birds, all in one post! Close enough anyway.

  7. Oh and it's completely fine if she's not a birder. BUT YOU MUST DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO ENSURE SHE IS A LIBERAL!

  8. Adorable Annabelle... Much better choice than Hudsonian Godwit. Which would have ensured that she would never be a birder. But now, it's almost 100% that she will. Why? Because it is her destiny to take down #7, and become #6.

  9. I am something of a bastard with my own larvæ and I like Elijah Craig fine though I’d generally rather have a Booker’s, Elmer T, or perhaps a Pappy Van Winkle when the winds of finance blow just so. I also have a Sibley’s or two; one signed by the author. Doesn’t seem to help me keep up with you though. :P Perhaps I should write a letter of complaint.

  12. You are implying that either Elijah Craig or Sibley or both are bastards as you used the plural, nice one, coz we all are (underneath).

  13. Congratulations! It's not often that a photo on a birding blog can get me all teary eyed. Love the owl bag, I'll bet she will be a birder.
