Last night Vinomaker and I joined my TWWIAGE co-workers to celebrate Christmas...Rat Pack-style. To my mind it was a little early in the month for such festive goings-on, but suitable venues get booked up quickly in the valley and so December 7th it was. However, after a couple of glasses of bubbly, and several soaring renditions of Frank Sinatra classics, I had forgotten what the date was. A good time was had by all. So an early, Happy Christmas to everyone.
