A Little Taste of Home

21 Aug

Ever had a big frothy beer and noticed that everything looked a bit better?

Grass was little more green.
Life moved a little slower.
The people around you all looked a little prettier.

Like nothing could bring you down?

Life feels; Calmer.
You can’t help but smile at the beautiful faces walking by.
As if you could just stand in the middle of no where, and feel more satisfied just looking around, than you have in ages.

You don’t care what time it is, or what you have to do.
Nothing else matters but the pleasures in your head.

A feeling I most recently had after a lunch at Bully’s Pub.

A pint of Hoegaarden could make the deepest of frowns, turn upside down.

Even my waitress couldn’t help but be happy.

The fried buttery goodness. The cold frothy beer rushing down my throat and into my system. The sounds of Q balls being struck, of laughs, of familiar songs.

A feeling that is quite priceless.

A father playing pool with his daughter couldn’t resist the temptations of Thai beer. A feeling I too fell victim to.

TVs in all corners, for people of all hobbies. Road racing, rally, then motorbikes. I was in heaven.
If all of that wasn’t enough, they even had a California License plate to remind me of home.

My walk home felt like a dream. I loved every second of it.

There was something about this couple that caught my eye.

I can never pass by a street musician without throwing them some money and sticking around to listen to a tune.

There’s something about shooting water that everyone just loves.

On my way home I passed a side street market with clothes and accessories for sale.

As I passed the shops, the sight of John and Yoko stopped me. Quite possibly my favorite couple of all time. I couldn’t help but buy a couple of things.
Among them were these glasses I had been searching for. Not sure if they fit my face so well, but I love them.

Bully’s brought me back to a place I needed to be.

So I urge you. Go to your nearest pub. Get a pint of their finest Beer and enjoy the life around you.
