We traveled to the 450 North Brewing Co. outside of Columbus, Indiana yesterday afternoon. It was our first time to this brewery and we weren’t sure what to order. In fact, we were too “coronavirus scared” to go into the establishment. So, our dear son went in and brought out a beer list for us. We got a growler of the Dunkel, which is advertised as a German style lager, dark, smooth and malty. At 5% ABV we loved it and will for sure be getting more. We are wanting to try some of their other brews as they have a large selection to choose from.
We are anxiously waiting to get our coronavirus vaccines so we can start visiting places again. 450 North Brewing is going to be one of our first go to places, as the food menu looks very good.
They are part of Simmons Winery, so we guessed at a bottle of wine we wanted to try. We tried the Fuzzy Peach table wine and we were a little disappointed with our pick, as it wasn’t as sweet as we like. But, our fault as we didn’t go inside to do a wine tasting. Next time we will go in and try some of the sweeter wines.
Looking forward to going back to this winery and brewery. I’m getting hungry just thinking of their menu!

This is the second puzzle we put together. This 1000 piece puzzle was a lot harder than the first thousand piece one we assembled a few weeks ago. It was really a challenge, and did provide a fun task to perform while still needing to stay safe from the virus.
We are hoping that we’ll be able to get the first of two COVID-19 vaccines within the next few weeks. Hopefully the distribution and start of the dispensing of the vaccines will be a signal of the beginning of the end of this damned pandemic.
Continue your vigilance and stay safe! Happy New Year!
Sher and Maj wish all our friends a very Merry Christmas and happy Holiday Season. This year has been tough for many in many ways. Hopefully 2021 will be better.
Remain vigilant and stay safe and healthy!
“Stuck at home” is the norm for lots of folks that currently need to be especially vigilant in avoiding the virus. One task that is available to provide entertainment and pass some time is working on a 1000 piece puzzle. The one that we are working on is pictured above. It is hard. Fun but hard!
Thankfully a vaccine is now approved and in route to first distribution. Stay vigilant!
The recent full moon came up on a night with thin cloud cover. This image was the result from the iPhone, with editing to a Black and White presentation.
We trust you are making the best of things and staying safe and healthy!
This Jack O Lantern probably graced someone’s front porch last weekend for Halloween. Even though you can’t see the face, the top removal is evidence of some decorative artwork. How or why this pumpkin found its way into the center of this shallow river is a mystery.
No more campaign ads, now we just have to get through the counting and lawsuits. Be safe! COVID’s getting worse just about everywhere.
On my walk a very nice fellow on a bicycle pointed out a bald eagle on a dead snag several hundred feet away. What a thrill it was to see a bald eagle, which is not at all a common sight in our area. This magnificent bird was in a tree overlooking a river with farm fields on the other side. Best photo I could get on the iPhone.
Get outside, you never know what you might see! Just do it safely!
There are reports from all over that face masks are littering the ground everywhere. We’ve seen them in parking lots, I personally saw 5 discarded on sidewalks yesterday during my daily walk. Face masks have become the new cigarette butt in these coronavirus pandemic times.
I am glad people are wearing face masks as recommended. But c’mon, folks! Don’t throw ’em on the ground when you’re done with it!
If you have been following Roadtirement, you know we have been getting out of the house and going to some RV parks to get away from our COVID-19 “isolation”. We went back to the Thousand Trails Indian Lakes campground in Batesville.

This park has great paved roads for bicycle riding, and there are no large hills that are hard to climb. The pretty scenery also is nice for walks. It is nice to get away in our motorhome and to know that we are in a safe environment. Having our own self contained “house on wheels” means we do not have to use public facilities at all.
It has been reported that RV sales are booming as many have discovered the having your own facilities is safest during the coronavirus pandemic. We talked (at a safe distance of course) to a fellow who had just bought an new motorhome so he and his wife could travel safely. They were on their first time out with their new rig.
Stay safe as you start to get back out, friends, stay safe!
Well, this fellow is following the Governor’s mask mandate. Unfortunately he needs a larger mask, as his mouth, nose and chin are not completely covered. At least he’s wearing one. And… I would certainly social distance from him!
Remember to stay cautious and safe folks!
