WINE BEFORE DINNER


WINE BEFORE DINNER


THE TRADITION AT OUR HOUSE IS WINE BEFORE DINNER. ONLY TO THANK THE FRENCH FOR THEIR TRADITION ALONG WITH THE ITALIANS. REDNECK KENTUCKIANS DO NOT HAVE THE CLASS TO ESTABLISH THIS IN THE HILLS.

NOW THIS IS THE TIME OF DAY MY BEAUTIFUL AND PATIENT WIFE SHARES TIME WITH ME. THIS TIME BEFORE THE BREAKING OF BREAD IS A GREAT RELEASE AND RESPITE FROM THE GRUELING DAYS. NOW, I MUST BANISH MY TRUSTWORTHY COMPANION, BAILEY, TO THE KENNEL OR BACK YARD AND TURN OFF THE FACEBOOK CONNECTION. THIS IS OUR TIME.

ONE MUST CONSIDER THAT WHILE WIFE HAS BEEN HIDING BEHIND A COMFORTABLE DESK WITH CALLER ID, I HAVE BEEN IN THE PITS, SLAYING DRAGONS, FIELDING CALLS FROM POWER OF FINANCE, (BERNE MADOFF JUST CALLED COLLECT) AND CHALLENGING THE FED. TO PROVIDE SOME STIMULUS TO MY ACCOUNT. HOWEVER, CONSIDERING WIFE’S TRIALS I AM FORTUNATE TO HAVE SUCH COMPANY FOR THE WINE BEFORE DINNER.

THE MEDICINAL POWERS OF WINE CONTINUE TO INTRIGUE ME. I HAVE WORKED MY WAY THROUGH ONLY ABOUT 5 SPECIES OF GRAPES, BUT THE CHALLENGE CONTINUES. I MUST WRITE THESE SPECIES DOWN FOR I HAVE A TENDENCY TO “FORGET” SOME OF THE GRAPES TESTED. OH WELL. ONE MUST PRESS ON TO GREATER VINES AND VINEYARDS.
HAPPY TOASTS.
