Hi all,
Just had our first Happy Hour/Quarantinis with several of our friends on Zoom! We're planning another for Saturday night.

Hope you all are staying safe!

Great idea Mardie.  We're thinking of doing something similar at breakfast time ... Skypeing with friends while sipping Isolattes.

Took advantage of AM "senior shopping hours" to pick up some groceries today.  This particular market was not allowing customers to bring their reusable bags into the store.  Instead, they've gone back to supplying free paper bags at checkout.  Smart move.  Then, at the liquor store they weren't even allowing people into the shop.  They'd set up a table at the front door, took your order and brought it out to you and you paid out front.  Glad I knew what I wanted (Boon's Farm '69) and didn't have to browse.

It's always a pleasure to bask in the afterglow of a huge gulp of the difficult to find Boone's Farm. Particularly the '69 vintiage. Exquisite!! 99/100 from Wine Spectator.
Enjoy, Patti and Craigbo!! You're lucky quarantined DHS grads! I'm green with envy, not COVID-19 (so far)!

Holy crap ... I knew that Boone's Farm was in the 90s, but a 99?  That's better than my go-to alternative when my packy is out of Boone's:  Kickapoo '32 - hints of boysenberry and carmelized kumquats, with a touch of road tar on the finish.

Oh PShaw!  Floral essence and road tar are so yesterday.  Gimme the new Boone's Reserva with dog peed road slurry....cloudy and crunchy.  Or, the very rare and desirable Yocumberry Tonic.  Fuiltered through wool socks, it has the organic backcountry fragrance of toe jam and mildew on the nose.

'Just spoke with my cousins in Sacramento.  Prolific travellers, they are busy undoing /redoing their travel plans for the rest of the year.  They report that rescheduling has been, generally, easy and trouble-free.  However, one snag seems to occur when rescheduling hotel accomodations.  Some establishments have required an automatic 'upgrade' to honor a reschedule.  FYI.................Bye for now.  Gotta go wash my reuseable grocery bags.

This is the first time in recent memory that it is St. Patrick's Day and I don't a big corned beef cooking on the stove.  Not by choice, I assure you.  I could find one!  I made one last search yesterday and came up empty again.  In fact, I couldn't find any chicken or eggs either.  Whole shelves were empty.  Happy St. Patrick's Day from 'Twilight Zone'.

Whole thing is weird. Stop and Shop is letting us 'old timers'  (over 60) shop by ourselves from 6 - 7:30 am. With the market going down, I'll need food stamps!

OK....so, now that we're spending lots of quality time at home, we've got more time to catch up with classmates.  'Just heard from Tigger Smith from Aspen, where, I guess, the virus numbers are really high.  He said that his family is 'self isolating' and that it seems to be going 'OK'.  It seems hard to imagine.  More soon.......................

Think of all the TP we put in the trees on Holloween.
