Wine Delivery

Yesterday I made a wine delivery.

I’ve said before that I sometimes feel like a bootlegger (see “Moonshine”) but never more so than when I’m making deliveries.

Instead of thinking illicit thoughts, I need to focus on the barter economy this represents, if in a small way. And the benefits!

Lucky Thirteen

Yesterday we celebrated the thirteenth anniversary of moving to the homestead.

We’re smack dab in the middle of Reserve Week, when we try to avoid social obligations beyond Michelle’s birthday, our homestead anniversary, and our wedding anniversary, in a couple of days (see August 14, 1982).

We’re also smack dab in the middle of a drought! While that causes a lot of serious problems, it also means that we held our celebration in sunny, warm weather.

And, we’re also mid-tourist season, and since Michelle and Aly work in the industry, we had to celebrate in a flexible way.
