Tequila Tuesday...

…after getting the reports on the MRI on my knee, I decided Tuesday was Tequila Tuesday! Cuidado Tequila Blanco, distributed by Denver's Mile High Distillery and billed as the best tequila in the world (which is kinda a reach…sorry), Patron Orange Liqueur, and fresh lemon juice. Astringent, but perfect with flash grilled mahi dusted with New Mexico red chili powder and local green beans with lemon butter. Timed everything out perfectly, and dinner was excellent.

Did decide not to spend the afternoon at the range, but will do so tomorrow, running the G19 with the RMR to start tuning up for that episode of SHOOTING GALLERY.

The MRI? The short story is my knee is slagged — "repetitive use athletic injury" — in short, the marathons, ultras, triathlons and jumping out of perfectly good airplanes and off perfectly stable mountains has come home to roost. Well, it was never going to be free, was it? Have to get at CT scan to see if we can "resurface" the knee rather than replace it. Fingers crossed here. But 2 things are certain…I'll do Noveske again next year and do better, and somewhere in Canada there's a caribou with my name on him.

Why caribou and not moose?

Perhaps because it's much easier to get a caribou tag?

Why would someone name a caribou "Michael Bane"? Weird.

Hi Michel,

I've found a perfect accompaniment for your style of cooking and mine too. Here in the "Great North", Michigan, we have a large population of Mexican migrant workers. So, the local Meijer store carries a nice selection of Mexican foods for them. When I peruse the various aisles shopping to satisfy my culinary curiosity, I watch to see what they buy and then I buy it. One of the real "finds" was "Tapatio" Salsa Picante Hot Sauce. After enjoying all of the other hot sauces that have come and gone over the last "many years" (ahem), this sauce is by far the best. It has he correct balance of "heats"; lip, mouth, throat, stomach, and.....

It can even be bought on-line. And no, I don't work for them, but I do want them to be successful so I can enjoy their products. Last, their founders story matches the work ethic of many who frequent this site, or watch your shows.

Enjoy!

Caribou significantly less expensive than Mr. Moose! Would love to go on a Maine moose hunt…

Worsham…remember, I'm a LLAMA!

We would be proud to have you here for a moose hunt! You will be able to constitutionally carry by then ��

Man I had no idea of your background. You are like a modern day renaissance man. Hemmingwayesque.
Injuries suck. They eventually get to all of us. I have been using this bum knee excuse (torn menuscus) as an excuse for a while. Hittng 50 soon and still enjoy doing all of the outdoor sports I used to do but I just dont heal as fast anymore. I need to suck it up and get the work done.
If you find the fountain of youth please remember to hook a brother up!

I know you are a tequila man. That said, I hope to encourage you to try some bourbons at next year's NRA Annual Meeting. I plan to make a week of it and do the KY bourbon trail.

They are awful but knee replacements are worth it. My father in-law needed both knees after a full life. Rehab was terrible but afterwards he could walk and play tennis again. Hope you don't need it but don't delay if they say you need it.
