La Migra, a name which I am sure conjures up unpleasant thoughts in the minds of quite a large percentage of Napa County residents, has never been a concern to this particular resident alien. I follow the rules. I pay what is requested of me ($450 this time). I periodically subject myself to being finger-printed and photographed. I don't complain. I observe the immigration laws of the United States of America. What is it that some people don't understand about the definition of the word illegal?
On another note, I got home early enough to finish pruning the Cabernet Sauvignon vines, though I haven't tied down the canes yet. It is forecast to rain tonight and tomorrow, Napa's first rain for March, so that will help soften the canes up a bit which'll make tying them down a little easier. Then...hello Syrah!
