Cinco de Mayo and Paper Work and Paper Play

Today is a day of deliveries. I expected to get started sooner because somebody at Whole Foods was registered to be in at 8:00 AM. The wave of relief when I called in to find he wasn’t there that early is best left hidden. But I’m going to leave the computer soon for a long list of deliveries around Tampa and St. Petersburg.

Tomorrow will be a day of paper. I will have a lot of fun finishing a birthday present for a new friend and I will have a lot of boredom writing up tax reports and compliance papers for the state auditors. It’s a glamorous life, the life of a winemaker. ūüôĀ Saturdays buried in paper.

All the whining aside, we had an excellent Cinco de Mayo celebration. Some of my spoiled wine that’s not in a condition to sell but is in a condition to enjoy got mixed in with some fruit and ginger ale and cinnamon. We had ourselves a time. (Legal disclaimer: we had all this wine cleared through a licensed vendor in the state of Florida blah blah blah blah blah.)

I condescend on behalf of O'Vineyards.They drink and tackle. That is the heart of el cinco de mayo.
They reconcile. This photo actually has a bottle of O'Vineyards in the foreground.  Somehow, not a single photo was taken of us drinking wine or sangria, so I had to include this as evidence.I get jealous of other people's V-necks.

  4. At the last juction, bear left.¬†the road sign ‚ÄúAve de la Montagne Noire‚ÄĚ (confusing as it seems to show a right turn)
  5. After another 500m you will see our red brick color building in the middle of the vines.
