Pluck the Day: 11-16-2015

Thanks for checking out Pluck the Day! A challenge to myself to post an original drawing/sketch/cartoon at least 5 days a week.


A hint of honey mixed with dirty snowballs.  That is how I would describe the beer I had this week.  Now, take what I say with a grain of salt because my palate is not sophisticated at all and I often wonder if those fancy micro-beers are just wasted on me.  However, this weekend I picked up some German style Dopplebock to enjoy during the game.  Dopplebock, which literally means “double bock,” is a strong German beer, sometimes reaching over 10% in alcohol content, and one of the main reasons I wanted to give it a try.  As the colder temperatures arrive, I will fall back on my common winter drink, a good old stout.  If it is as dark as night and as thick as motor oil, I’ll be a happy camper.

If you enjoy what I’m doing, then there are three ways you can help:

  • Like this post
  • Leave a comment telling me what you like, advice you have, or gentle critiques 🙂

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
