>Well I think I have finally recovered from the long weekend away and gotten back into the swing of things.
So when we last left off, I was gearing up for the 1 parade of the 2 from last week that I was going to make. I found out while I was away on our little trip that I won Best Drum Major! First win of the season which makes me really happy. Still waiting on my Trophy or Plaque or whatever.
So on Thursday we packed up the Puppies into the Mini-Van rental and headed to upstate NY to wine country in the Finger Lakes area. This weekend was a Greyhound event filled with wine and dogs.
Thursday was the quiet travel day, with a small little welcome reception that night. We caught up with the other people from our adoption group here locally that were on the trip, enjoyed some hors d’evours and a couple glasses of wine.
Friday was the first of the 2 big days with the vendors and Wine Tastings galore. On Friday we managed to browse the vendors and make mental note of what we wanted to buy. Then it was off to Wineries and One Distillery. It was fabulous seeing all the wineries and all the dogs visiting with their owners.
I must say there are some really good Whites up there; the reds were ok by the hubbies’ standards.
Saturday we decided to do a few of the wineries on the other side of the lake that were participating in this weekend’s event. The first one had a couple wines we enjoyed; we did pick up a case from them to give as gifts. With a name like Pompous Ass how can you go wrong?
The second winery we visited Saturday was by far one of our favorites. Not only were the wines really good, but the guy giving the tasting was funny, and not bad on the eyes, among other employees that were pretty damn cute too. After a half a case from there off we went back to town. Well I should say we attempted to get back to town but the Italian Festival Parade caused us a bit of a delay.
Sunday we had a great breakfast (at the same place we ate on Saturday) then off to a local state park for a walk with the hounds. The weather was a little overcast which was fine, because it was a bit muggy. After the walk it was back to a couple wineries to get another half a case, then back home to find a place for dinner.
Monday was again a quiet travel day.
Overall the experience was great, the motel was fabulous, the restaurants awesome, and the company extraordinary.
Now the work week has come and gone. Another parade Sat, then another on Weds and Friday.
