We also bottled our wine and it turned out surprisingly good....crystal clear and with a crisp, pinot grigio flavor. A positive thing about making your own wine is that it is done without all of the sulfates or whatever. Being part of a class, I only got four bottles, which didn't last long. One was served at our zentangle gathering and another was given to a friend for her birthday.....so I was only left with enough to convince me that I do want to do it again. I called my wine "Crescent Moon Memories" and used the SC logo, which always reminds me of a similar Saudi image, except with a green background. It's all here:
What else has been happening? Well, Cheryl Mc. and I went to two concerts in Savannah. One was the Tedeschi Trucks Band, whom we'd seen before, and the other was The Old Crow Medicine Show. Both were very good in different ways. It's always fun to hear live music. Elaine and I went to see Blythe Spirit in Beaufort, which was enjoyable. Each time I go to Beaufort, I like it more and more. Debbi and I went to the Symphony under the Stars on a warm evening.....one of the first nights nice enough for something like that. I also went to a monthly concert at the Unitarian church, though I missed the one this past Friday. So, I've been culturally stimulated, which has been fun.
We've also had more sunny, mild days which has enabled (and encouraged) me to walk more. The shorter, lighter clothes of summer have exposed creepy, crepe-y skin all over my body, especially backed up above my knees and draping down my arms. Yikes! So, I'm moving to longer shorts, shirts with sleeves, etc. How disgusting!

Georgie, Zorro (feral cats) and raccoons continue to do well and I look forward to seeing them. Zorro has gotten to where he will eat his meal and then lie down at my feet, which is very sweet. One day as I was walking home from lunch with my mother, I ran into this huge snapping turtle. He was in the road just around a curve and I didn't want him to get run over, so I just stood there for a minute trying to figure out what to do. By that time a woman and her children had stopped and people was slowing to look. Finally, a nearby neighbor returned home and came over to help. I'd never seen a turtle this big and this close. The tail and claws are as formidable as the mouth! The first time the man picked him up, he snapped, wiggled and scratched, drawing blood. The second time he tried, the turtle peed on him!! Every time I see a turtle by the roadside, I wonder where they are going...or where he thinks he's going? How does he know there's something out there for him? Animals are just amazing.
That about catches you up with me. What have you been up to??
Happy Mother’s Day
