|What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)|
Western is kind of neutral, but not quite since it's still possible to tell where you're from. So you might not actually be from the West (but you probably are). If you really want to sound "neutral," learn how to say "stock" and "stalk" differently.

It is a great time, lots of people to watch, lots of great beers to taste (1 ounce at a time), crazy shirts and outfits that people wear. It is a true event with lots to see. I do enjoy lots of beers, so this is a nice time to get out and experience a little more than Coors Light. I enjoy a CL Smoothy every once in a while, but I know that there is much more out there - American Style Barleywine beers (without too much hops), porters and stouts (rich in the malt), winter brews, summer ales, sweet beers, sour beers, beers that literally made me shiver as I stood there! I get to meet lots of people, and I will actually be an Assistant Brew Crew Captain next year! I do enjoy myself, and it is a time to just relax and have fun (not as much fun as those folks on Saturday night who have been drinking one ounce samples for four hours straight).
Here is a picture of me and my folks after we came home from Friday night's session.

We also all got sick. Not fun. On Monday, Elijah threw up everything he ate or drank. Otherwise, he seemed to be feeling fine however, and he got up on Tuesday happy and hungry and we thought it was over. Then on Tuesday I got sick. Then Patrick and Jim on Tuesday night. Then Wednesday, when I started to feel a little better, Barb got sick. At least it was staggered enough that there was always someone well enough to take care of Elijah! So we lost a couple of days of our vacation while we were all sitting around eating dry toast and ramen noodles, but it was still a good week.
I will post more pictures and stories of our adventures as I have time - we're still visiting this week around here. I have to say, I love going to the mountains, but I also love coming home and sleeping in my own bed. It's nice to be back!
