Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

I hope you all had a pleasant and relaxing holiday.

Ol’ Robbo’s plans to work in his garden segued into spending the day loafing in his hammock so smoothly that he barely even noticed. Sorry, not sorry.

Brats on the grill for dins in the evening, as it was cool enough out to make them enjoyable. (Bratwurst, like Guinness stout, is too heavy for hot weather in my humble opinion.)

I was delighted to read yesterday of Christopher Newport University’s last minute come-from-behind touchdown drive to beat Dubyanell in its first game of the season. Apart from having a Gel at CNU, I’ve come to believe that the transmogrification of my old school into the People’s Glorious Soviet of Lexington, VA is both unstoppable and almost complete, and I begin to take keen pleasure in these little setbacks.

Whelp, time to put away the seersucker and white shoes and get on with autumn……. (I speak metaphorically. Ol’ Robbo does not own a seersucker suit. I’ve always felt that one must have a certain kind of physical presence to pull off wearing such a suit successfully, a presence which I’m keenly aware I do not have. Give Ol’ Robbo his blazer and khakis anonymity.)
