Hard not to notice your brewery but it's the sky that's really the show-stopper in this one. What does the bridge cross over?

The pic was taken in Montreal. The bridge is over the St. Lawrence River.

I can't help but wonder where that bridge leads to...
nonamedufus said…
It heads to the other side of the river... That's Jacques Cartier Bridge and it cross the St Lawrence River from Montreal Island to Longueuil, Quebec, known as the south shore.

Pretty sky and photo. I wish we had blue skies today!
Barb said…
What a great pic! Love the contrast of sky and buildings!
nonamedufus said…
Kinda peaceful looking isn't it? The free samples from the brewery kinda help too.
nonamedufus said…
Oh me too. That was 2 weeks ago. The sky's pretty ominous here lately.
nonamedufus said…
Took that from the passenger seat of the car about 3 o'clock in the afternoon.

You know the focus of my pic was the brewery but that sky was an added bonus.

Just thought you might like to know that we have a Blue Sky Brewery here. Sort of the best of all worlds, right?

I love the colors in this photo, NoName, from the red of the brick and the blue of the sky, to the coppery green of the bridge and the bright red of that strange, foreign-language sign in the foreground.
nonamedufus said…
Actually Molson Coors American HQ is in Denver.
nonamedufus said…
Actually that's an old sign. The new ones say WWT (Woah Woah Tabernac)
mike said…
Ah good old Molson. Years ago, they were a client of ours, and that complex is essentially a city in its own right. And yeah, you got some great blue sky in this one.
mike said…
(It's funny cause I'm the only one who got that joke)
nonamedufus said…
I know but I couldn't resist.
nonamedufus said…
I was a Labatt guy growing up; drank Blue. These days I drink Corona and Molson is licensed to distribute it in Canada. I was aiming for the brewery. The sky was an accident.
Ziva said…
Oh, shiny pretty colours. Lovely photo, dufus, now can I have a drink?
nonamedufus said…
A drink? Hell, I'm sharing the whole brewery with you.
Jamie Baker said…
Is this in Dufusland?
nonamedufus said…
Oh, yeah, my own brewery. I can dream can't I?
WOW... there are so many different looks to all these cities... look at that amazing blue sky!
nonamedufus said…
Those clouds are like The Simpsons clouds, don't ya think?
Boom Boom Larew said…
Must you really stop in the middle of the bridge?

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
