Legal Alcohol, Now An Adult



Yesterday, Bulldog Man and I took our son, Tank, out to dinner for his 21st Birthday.  Tank chose to go to Logan’s Steak House in town.  We treated him to a nice T-Bone Steak Dinner, and his first legal alcoholic drink. 
It’s so hard to believe our youngest child is no longer a child, he’s 21 years of age, and now legally responsible for himself.

I’ve started to setup my indoor greenhouse with my new T5 light strips (which are supposed to be 20% brighter than the traditional grow lights) from ACF Greenhouses.   Come Thursday, I’ll need to stop off at the local seed store and pickup starting soil for planting seeds inside.  My plans are to start some of my tomatoes and peppers.
Have you started your seeds inside your home or greenhouse?

  1. Wow, that is a better place than where I had my first "legal" alcoholic beverage. I turned 21, 4 days before a port visit to Key West. I wont elaborate though...

  3. Mine still has a year and a half left to turn 21. Sounds like you had a nice time at the restaurant.

    Yep it's about time to start the garden plants too isn't it? Or at least the first few plants anyway.

    1. PP,

      Your young master has a little more time, that time will go fast.
      Yes we had a lovely time at the restaurant.

      It is time but you need to be prepared to cover them from the cold/frost.

  4. That is a milestone age.
    Just bought seed starter soil today. Will map and plan and check to see what seeds I've already got/saved. Going to grow, grow, grow this summer.

    1. Oh .. I forgot to mention that I, too, set up a mini greenhouse in my dining room complete with a heat mat and grow lights. It's just a little too early to plant yet. Next month.

    2. Mrs. Mac,

      It sure is a milestone age :-)

      I'm going to grow, grow, grow this summer too and can, can, can.
      The mini greenhouses are great for inside or out. Not to early here to start :-)

  5. Happy Birthday Tank!

    Started seeds on the back patio at home so I can water them as needed. Tomatoes to start, chocolate peppers soon to come...

    1. Izzy,

      Tank said, Thank you!!!

      I hope you have all kinds of tomatoes to harvest when the time comes along with the chocolate peppers.

  6. oh wow! Happy Birthday Tank - i hope that you had a wonderful day and a great supper with your parents!!!

    sweet Sandy, it's hard to believe that you have a 21yr old son seeing as how you are only 29 yourself - bahahahah! but from everything you have ever said about him, he sounds like he is a responsible young man and that he will do very well in life.

    as for greenhouses and seeds, we will set up our little indoor greenhouse, with grow lights, in the kitchen next month - it's still a little too early to start anything here. make sure to keep us updated on what seeds you will be starting and lots of pics! much love to you and yours, always! your friend,

    1. Sweet Kymber,

      He enjoyed his dinner, had it done before we even had half of ours done. I made him a chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, he loves his chocolate too.

      Yes, it's so hard because I've been 29 for 10 years now, bahahahahaha!!! He's a good kid, and I'm hoping everything we taught him will remain with him when he eventually goes out into the world on his own.

      I will make sure to take plenty of pictures and keep you up to date on what I'm planting and it's progress.

      Sending love to you and Jambaloney
      Your Friend,
      Sandy

  7. Happy Birthday Tank! I forgot where I had my first "legal: adult beverage. You had to be 18 at that time.

    Started seed but many perished when I was sick so have to do it all over again.

    1. Mamma Bear,

      Tank wanted me to tell you thank you. It's funny, when we were able to drink it was 18 years of age, that was a long time ago bahahahahahaha!!!!

      I'm hoping some of your seeds grow and not all perish.

  8. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TANK! Love the name ! We use to have a black male cat named Tank.. : )

    I had a fake I.D so my first drink was when i was 19. And it was in some of the bars that use to line to beach down here. Back then you could cruise the strip...Fri. and Sat. nights it was packed. We girls would head down to pick up sailors..lol A lot of no name bands ( at that time) would play down there. Now some of them are actually famous. It's is fun to say " I saw them when" .. Most of those bars are shut down now, they closed the strip to cruising long ago. Fun times though....

    1. JUGM,

      Tank said, thank you!!! He got the nickname Tank from playing football, he would plow down the players.

      It is funny when you got to know the band members before they became big. I would get into bars without ID because I always looked older than I was. Now my first legal drink was in Madrid, Spain.

  9. The steakhouse sounds wonderful. I don't think I would have like my first drink to be with my parents. But that was nice. Is that a photo of him?

  10. Michaele,

    Tank chose the steakhouse. He was happy to have us treat for the meal and drink. Later that night he went out with friends. Yes, that is a photo of Tank.
