Dude, when it’s okay, make the trip here. These are good. It’s a simple recipe of 1/2 oz sweet vermouth, 1 oz of Bulleit rye, two dashes of Angostura bitters, and a small dash, a half dash, of orange bitters. I pretty much always double it and add two Luxembourg cherries with a little juice.

Wr can act old and sophisticated, and drink Manhattans while shooting pool. @losetoa6 will show up, get drunk, and spill Pabst Blue Ribbon on the table.

Just another day here...

Give me a bib :lol:

Very nice lol!!!. But I'll run the table and take all your money first B)

Been told that all Baltimore county organized recreation is cancelled thru the end ofJune. So if you were hoping the kiddos sports were gonna start, don’t count on it

We live in the Fairlington neighborhood in Arlington and the HOA just announced that the pools (there are 6 in our community) will not be in open due to COVID.  WTF.

So your HOA fees WILL be adjusted, right? That would be question 1, of many.....

That was my first question, too.  I'm sure unlikely but hopefully it means they're able to maintain the same fees for next year vs the usual small increases that happen annually.

My building's pool likely won't open either.  Given that it's sitting empty right now with the exception of some rain water and green stuff, even if they filled it today the pool water would get sufficiently warm maybe sometime later in July if the weather is hot enough.  Big reason they gave was lack of lifeguards, since a lot of them come from overseas every summer and this year they can't get here.

I have this weird thing that every time I see a Tornado a word of its personality always pops into my head. When I see ones like this the word Evil comes up.

Maybe they can use the extra resources they don't have to spend on the pool and apply it to the sewer systems and drainage issues they have there. Are they keeping the Tennis Courts open?

Yeah, they also cited the lack of lifeguards since they normally use Eastern Europeans for the summer.  I find it hard to believe there aren’t college students home for summer or others in the local communities who are certified lifeguards but who knows.

Yeah, tennis courts are open (pretty sure they require you to reserve a time especially for the more popular courts like the 3 courts next to the main office/Abingdon school).

Is this a future storm in the GOM this year? Also, do we get some decent remnants from it up here?

Do they still pick through the garbage bags to see if they can figure out who put their trash out early? That place is the worst..

I don't know all the details but what I do know is that it suddenly teleported to the Chesapeake bay as a category five storm while we were all asleep.

Also, here's leaked satellite footage of multiple cat 5s in quick succession heading towards the mouth of the bay:

Same goes with me with those awful HOA's. My first home was in one.  I'll never ever live in 1 again . What a joke :lol:

You have too much plant life

Your shed isn't a perfect match to the house siding .

Hide your trashcans 

Can't park a car for longer the a week .

No yard signs ( even for sale signs lol)

No trucks with business lettering .

Hide your trashcans 

Identical mailboxes 

Your shingles don't match the other homes.

 Your grass needs cut

Remove your security flood light because its shining in someone's sensitive eyes lol

Your asphalt driveway  is starting to weather.  Get it recoated lol.

Fix that little sidewalk crack.

Your shutters don't match other homes 

TURN DOWN YOUR MUSIC ( if I want to blast "Rush" during the day I can )

Do you have a permit to install that deck,shed, outlet etc.

Your front door has to be a certain color.

The list goes on and on ..

 

Screw this sh*t 

It's a free country.

Probably but was just confirmed that for the park I work at. I mean I figured It would be a while still but we were still lining the sports fields up until the weekend just in case things started sooner than later

Yeah unfortunately phase 2 isn’t likely around these parts until at least July at the earliest

and to be fair, each rec group announces as they see fit. just because my area made the call a while ago, doesn't mean your area did. either way, sucks for the kids.

I guess there were some people in my building who were hopeful they'd let the pool area open up for sunbathing even with the pool itself empty and uncovered.  Those hopes got crushed yesterday when the deck chairs got put back into storage.

There's a townhouse community right next to me, and the owners of one of the houses put in a backyard floodlight last year and kept it on 24/7.  Just recently it got turned off and it's not even put on at night.  I didn't even think of the possibility the HOA got to the owners.  The layout of the community means it's not hard for criminals to sneak around backyard areas (and there have been some incidents in the past year) so I didn't blame them one bit for installing one.  Now if the owners of another house could do something about their motion-sensor floodlight which is set so sensitive that sometimes it's like a little kid playing with a light switch...

Yeah the area I work at is used by multiple Rec councils and high/‘middle schools etc. I don’t know who exactly made the decision but it’s been made. Makes my job super easy but yes sad for the kids

We just got an email this morning about pool opening date. They are shooting for June 13th. Apparently Frederick Co. came out yesterday and it passed inspection but our community is waiting on the MD state restrictions to be lifted. 

About a month ago the pool company reached out to our neighborhood looking for kids who were certified for Lifeguarding. They want to staff with as many community kids as possible. And help with summer jobs. So sounds like they have enough lifeguards on staff if there is a projected opening date.

FYI: beginning thursday you can get a test without needing an appointment

select sites in the state will have testing available without appointment, at no cost. hogan also directing license pharmacists to order and give tests.

Where are all the happy hour drinkers?

Decided to do a shot of Jager cold brew coffee, right out of the freezer ofc. Normally only drink digestifs as a night cap, but felt like starting off with a little bang.
