The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Ann-Christine.
Per A-C: “…small surprises usually occur in our everyday life. It could be surprising meetings, incidents, or maybe eye openers. In fact anything you feel surprises you!”
During self-isolation, thoughts have sometimes turned to WINE (not WHINE, thankfully, which is a normal, everyday occurrence anyway). Rather than a lobotomy (lo-bot-o-my), it’s perhaps better to have a bottle-in-front-of-me. 😱
A recent visit to Colorado wineries reminded me of wine wisdom, the following from the tasting room of Graystone Winery in Palisade, Colorado, next door to Grand Junction. Graystone, actually and unusually, makes PORTS, their current offerings being Port V, VI, and VII, representing the years produced, I’m told, making them 13- to 15-year old ports.
In my humble and unknowledgeable opinion, they are on the sweet side, and not as full-bodied as fine Portuguese tawnys, but they are tasty, locally produced (support your local economy), and a lot closer than Portugal.
Enough of the free advertising. It’s the humor in the wine shop that caught my eye.
The first one mimics one of my many favorite Crosby, Stills, and Nash songs:
“Well there’s a rose, in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with”
Fans of rock-and-roll history might like the two-episode (90-minutes each) documentary I viewed on tv recently, titled Laurel Canyon. Lots of CS&N, Joni Mitchell, et al, that populated the L.C. area in the mid-late ’60s. Excellent documentary.
That one is self-explanatory.
My psychological profile:
Also self-explanatory. Go with whatcha’ got.
Finally my most favorite, and apropos. Mr. Grumpy.
Stay safe, be well. Be kind to one another. 😷 👏 👍
Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.
