Fun 'n Games / YeeeeeeHaaaaaa

A woman from New York was driving through a remote part of Arizona when her car broke down. An American Indian on horseback came along and offered her a ride to a nearby town.

She climbed up behind him on the horse and they rode off. The ride was uneventful, except that every few minutes the Indian would let out a Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a!' so loud that it echoed from the surrounding hills and canyon walls.

When they arrived in town, he let her off at the local service station, yelled one final 'Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a!' and rode off.

"What did you do to get that Indian so excited?" asked the service-station attendant. "Nothing," the woman answered "I merely sat behind him on the horse, put my arms around his waist, and held onto the saddle horn so I wouldn't fall off."

"Lady," the attendant said, "Indians don't use saddles."

Winking Owl is Aldi's house wine brand.  It comes from the central valley California Modesto.  That is a flat fertile area that can grow most any row crop veggie.  Valley wines are not for the snobs.  When my valley wine is open too long I add ice makes it quite drinkable.

I am experimenting with the use of 1.75 Liter whiskey bottles for food storage.  I think they may be the answer to the small bug problem we have here.

 Seems no matter how well we seal open food containers small bugs enter.  I had some large Milk Bone treats for the dogs that greeted me where I played poker.  They were in the glove compartment.  I recently tossed them out because they were riddled with small holes.  I know from experience that those holes contain small bugs.

if you have a friend that is into wines - aldi's here had ice wine for 14.99 a bottle which is cheap.

I had never heard of Ice Wine.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_wine
a type of dessert wine produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. The sugars and other dissolved solids do not freeze, but the water does, allowing for a more concentrated grape juice to develop. The grapes' must is then pressed from the frozen grapes, resulting in a smaller amount of more concentrated, very sweet wine. With ice wines, the freezing happens before the fermentation, not afterwards.

Now, of course, I'm an expert.

I need to make a trip to Aldi.
