Yes, I'm spoiled, your point being...?

Good friends, good food, good wine. A lovely evening (and a nice interlude in a truly crappy week at work, in the lives of my friends, and the world could do better too).

Homegrown garlic and peppers (both roasted) with goat cheese on great rich-in-various-grains-and-seeds bread.

Homegrown cabbage in the lightly dressed coleslaw and homegrown cherry tomatoes and basil.

Homegrown eggplant, sliced, basted with olive oil, and grilled; homegrown corn on the cob; grilled salmon with a salsa of diced cantaloupe, homegrown New Mexico peppers, homegrown mint (?), and lime juice.

Clafouti of raspberries and homegrown figs.

Maggie's Reserve Zinfandel from Rosenblum (thank you, Steve!).

Summertime, and the livin' is easy....

Chatting, then dining in the front courtyard with the fountain at my back, the zinnias in bloom, Jupiter shining in the heavens.

Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Bill and Kathy. Thank you, Steve. Wopila, Ina Maka, Ate Wi, Tunkasila Wakan Tanka, and all my relations.

How does that song from "Music Man" go?
"Caflouti, caflouti, caflouti!"

And the word thingy is 'corkshn.'
Certainly must have something to do with the Zin.
