Virginia Wine

Conversation before we get to the first winery:

Mom: “They won’t make me buy a bottle of wine, will they?”
Me: “No Mom, they won’t. But don’t worry, if they do I’ll buy it.”

During the tasting, before Rick and I have even gotten half-way through ours, who is buying a bottle of wine? Mom.

Cellphone pictures just don’t do justice. Spectacular dawn this morning.

If You Don’t Like The Weather, Just Wait …

Springtime in Blacksburg. How can I tell? Monday afternoon at the bus stop it was every bit of 80 degrees and windy. Tuesday (yesterday) afternoon it was in the 30’s and still very windy. Today, it was almost 60 with just a slight breeze. The saying is true … if you don’t like the weather, you won’t have to wait long for it to change.
