We will sell no wine....and JDM

At my plotting retreat, one of the ladies brought a bottle of Vampire wine. That's the label, and it was a thick Merlot. I have looked at every HEB without luck and so last night after my birthday dinner, we dropped the boy off at a concert and went to Central Market. I bought three bottles (2 accidentally the same, bummer.) We also bought beer and margarita mix, since you can't buy alcohol in Texas before 12 noon on Sunday.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes. It was a nice day, and quiet. We cleaned up the back yard for the barbecue today, I went down to Dawn's, which is like going to a botanical garden in and of itself. She sent me home with an armful of roses. Speaking of wine, she designed the labels for this winery.

I came home, napped, went to my favorite in town restaurant and had TWO appetizers!

Now I think I'm coming down with a sore throat, and can't sleep. And company will be here in 11 hours.....and the food isn't bought!

Today JDM turns 41 - yes, he's one day younger than me. Fate, I tell you!

Who makes the Vamp wine? I have a friend who's obsessed with the dark ones. Must buy her that wine. Tell, tell.

Oh, yeah. DUH! Happy Birthday!!! Glad it was a good one.

Is the vampire wine local?
Hope you're feeling better!

Thanks for the birthday wishes!!! We had fun, but by the time everyone left, we all just collapsed. Having a party is an all weekend thing!

The website for the vamp wine is http://www.vampirewine.com. It's imported from Transylvania, and we didn't even open the bottle last night!

We did have mango margaritas, though.
