Re: OT - REDNECK WIND CHIMES

Couldn't be. No self-respecting redneck would drink Coors and there ain't no bullet holes, neither.

You're right, but his wife would crochet the Coors cans into a "gimme" style cap, for sure.

Not in this century. Back when I was younger, and you had to drive half way across the country to get it, it was a bit of a status symbol amoung the redneck dudes (back in the "Smokey & the Bandit" days).

Yes, I was stationed in Charleston, SC when Piggly Wiggley was exporting Coors to Mexico, inporting it to the US, paying taxes on both border crossings, and selling it for $4.99 a sixpack. At the time most domestics were less than $2 a sixpack, with a few under a buck. Joe

Interesting tidbit about "Smokey & The Bandit": the premise was that they were making a run from Atlanta to Texarkana for a truckload of Coors, because Coors wasn't available east of Texas.
The only thing is, it wasn't available in Texarkana, either.
Bowie County (Texarkana, Texas) is dry. You can't buy alcohol except in a private club, and because it's a dry county, there are no distributers (it's all "imported" from a wet county elsewhere in Texas). Miller County (Texarkana, Arkansas) is wet -- but it's in Arkansas. No Coors back then!
Oh, and the bit about making the return route by way of Fayetteville was a real side-splitter for those of us in Arkansas. (Hint: you can't get there from here!)

Of course, those of us in Fla knew the whole thing was filmed on I10 in the Fla Panhandle (just a tad east of where the bridge is, that Hurricane Ivan washed away). I10 was then not quite completed, and there were long stretches which were paved but not connected to anything.

Johnny Paycheck used to call it Colorado Kool Aid. If you ever saw where they get that "Rocky Mountain spring water" you would never touch Coors again.

Reminds me of a buddy who worked a summer at a Howard Johnson's restaurant about his first year at college. Pete always said afterwards if you'd ever worked there, you never again ate there.
I never worked there, but I didn't eat in a Hojo's for over 30 years because of his descriptions.

I lived out in Boulder for a bit during the seventies and made the pilgrimage down to Golden to see how old Joe brewed his stuff.
It was a damned nice tour and they made the point more than once that the water was cleaner when it left the plant than it was when it came in.
It made me wonder why they didn't start brewing with the outflow, rather than the inflow.
But then, my wife has always said that I'm a suspicious sort.
