ROS Party a "moderate success"

We had the ROS Party Saturday. A perfect day, the weather couldn't have been better. Here are some pictures Dan Berger took (thanks, Dan!); I'll write more later -- got work to do!

1st pic: Cathy and I, just happy it's working so well.

2nd pic: Me & Stephen Beaumont, bothering Penderyn.

1st pic: the party, under the maple tree.

2nd pic: Dan "Mr. Northside Entertainment" Bengel, Larry Horwitz, and a somewhat looming Brian O'Reilly enjoy a few beers from the "Raries & Scaries" selection.

Well - you may not have gotten through as much ROS as you might have liked - but I certainly enjoyed myself :)

Thanks again to you and Cathy!

D W said...

Jesus, Lew - are you going to go all Star Jones on us and announce a few months from now that you had the surgery? You're a stick, man!


Lew Bryson said...

Ah, Witzel, the sad truth is that I've put about 10 lbs. back on. I was looking at those pix and thinking that I've got to get back to work. Started serious rowing again last week, and after the weekend's sausage-fest, we're taking it easy.

Besides, who you calling stick, boy?

Bryan said...

DW beat me to it. I was going to comment about your sveltness too! Or, perhaps you're instead suggesting that Dan has a magic camera :)

Steven said...

I vote for the sveltness too. 10 pounds or not, you're still holding your own!

Michael said...

Oh yeah, Penderyn looks "bothered" alright ;-) In my house we call it "oh please don't stop!)

Dan Berger said...

Don't know if Lew's going to post anymore. For those of you who I don't have a mail for and don't check BA
Here's the link for all the pics.


Lawrence said...

Seriously you look like you lost a lot of weight. Great job.

Lew, did any of the beer you had for a while get skunky???

I've got a bunch of ROS too and I'm wondering if any of it might go bad.

Lew Bryson said...

Not much skunking, Bill, but a LOT of oxidation, some so much we just dumped them. A damn shame.

bill mc said...

Oxidation, ok, forgive the ignorance, could you expand on that please, and what styles of beer tends to oxidize.

Thanks in advance.

Lew Bryson said...

Not a problem, Bill! Here, go read what George DePiro has to say (no point in me re-creating the wheel):
