Friday Cheers


Once we hit forty, women only have about four taste buds left: one for vodka, one for wine, one for cheese, and one for chocolate.

-Gina Barreca

My nose itched, and I knew I should drink wine or kiss a fool.

-Jonathan Swift

Friday Cheers

Written on the glass:  It's 5:00 Beach Time

“This is one of the disadvantages of wine, it makes a man mistake words for thoughts.”

― Samuel Johnson, The Life of Samuel Johnson LL.D. Vol. II

    “If reassurances could dull pain, nobody would ever go to the trouble of pressing grapes.”

― Scott Lynch, The Lies of Locke Lamora

Last weekend I had the pleasure of spending time with my BFF Chesapeake Bay Woman

I'm looking forward to more 
smack girl talk with her tomorrow. 

A good friend is better than a bottle of wine. 

If you have both, you are truly blessed!

When I get home from work in the evening,
I enjoy sitting out on the back porch and drinking wine 
letting the stress of the day
melt away.

The hummingbirds that dive bomb me keep me company are quite amusing!

I snapped some pictures of these wonderful creatures 
over the holiday weekend.

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do.

These beauties won't be around much longer. 
They usually disappear toward the end of September,
and emerge again in early April.

I plan to enjoy every minute I have with them!
