To Whine or not to Wine...

There is always a reason not to whine. And always a reason to wine. Since the opening of this blog I have had one entry on my families get together called the steak fry. Yes, we actually eat at this get together, my brothers all rock when it comes to the grill. And I have to say that Gene makes steak grilling a true art form. By the time we eat we have the planned and performed wine testing event.

This event has a purpose, finding a wine we have never tried and sharing it. Our point to all this is to read the bottles front and back and then the test. Funny think is we always like the wine. Discriminating taste buds we don't have. But we sure have a lot of fun. Maybe it is the reading of the wine bottles that is the main purpose.

One of my brothers, Vern brought a bottle of wine in a brown paper bag. If you know Vern you would understand the mystery, he loves the element of surprise. The bottle on the end was his entry. Yes, it was a little questionable for the older ones, but the writing was by far the best. Oh well, another wine tasting is in the air so I will stop whining.

To all my friends, God Bless

  3. I always enjoying "whining" with friends and family, too! Enjoy!

  4. Wining and Dining (in your case grilling) is always good fun :)

    Are you a white or red wine person ? Red makes me sleepy so I stick to sweet white :)

  5. First of all wine and whining go hand in hand in my family, after a few glasses they don't know what I am whining about. I love red however, with hot flashes it is not going to well. Smile.
