Come on HP, quite hanging around in the wall.



Oh yeah, and Molly, the homemade stuff is even better for your heart since it is most likely higher in fiber from the fruit, which the factory stuff filters to death.

I dunno about that. Dad's first attempts at wine-making when they moved to the Napa were . . . odd. He got better as his equipment grew more sophisticated, though, and ended up winning medals in state competitions.

Don’t know if I ever told you, but you were the first person I “met” on Lit. You invited me into Molly’s thread and made me feel at home. I really appreciated that. You also prolly know more about the “doings” of our family than just about anybody else on Lit. That’s cuz you care and are appreciated for being you.--posthumous message from Safe_Bet. And I still care and I still love her. Rest in the Light, Suzy.

I'm thinking wine doesn't travel well in a flask. Too bad, because I'm sure I could be quite happy with some while hanging out backstage. Maybe I'll just work on finishing off the random cans of beer that make their way in my direction.

I so want to be back onstage.

Either that, or have time to write....

I trust everyone is doing well?

Coming in to rest after working 8 am to 1 pm today. I am so glad I don't have to work until 12:30 PM Thursday! I can grab a siesta if I want without worrying about it affecting my sleep!

The crabbing was a bit disappointing. Did I catch any crab? Yes. Were any of them keepers? No. All the crab that made it into the pot were either females or too small to be legal (Law allows males only of a certain size). I was hoping to share some Dungeness and melted butter with you, annanova . But it was fun to hang around the dock by the sea. Even saw a sea lion peek his head up where we were crabbing.

I hope so. I drank enough my heart should be perfect.

Ain't nothing sophisticated about this stuff. A couple of plastic jugs to hold the juice for fermenting, bottles, burper, and a cork squeezer. Then you sit it on a shelf for a few months and enjoy.

Glad you made it home safely, even if you didn't get to bring any yummy Dungeness home, john. And yes, I would have loved sharing fresh crab and butter with you.

I'll have to look through some of my old pictures. I've spied whales a bit south of where you were.

LOVED the last picture! Of course, at the end of my last story, Anna and Brad were planning on heading there.

Home from rehearsal and finishing off a bottle of cabernet sauvignon.

All this talk about wine makes me quite thirsty, but I must resist the temptation of alcohol until I'm told I can. It's bad enough stopping the smoking, but drinking as well is getting a bit of a trial.

Don't worry, I'll drink on your behalf.

I'll get Rolf to get something for you. I do hope you like a good Port (as in real Portuguese, vintage stuff.

As good as the Port sounds, I may drain a cider on your behalf tonight. I love when we finally open a show. Closing night on Saturday will be even better.

Congrats and continued good luck with stopping smoking. I never picked it up, but I understand from friends who have both tried and succeeded, it can be a real bitch to quit.

Good luck on the show tonight!

I was having that same problem this morning, john. It's never easy to get out of my cozy, warm bed in the morning....

Thanks for the well wishes on the show. While I'm looking forward to acting again, I'm glad I'm not onstage for this one.

You are welcome to enjoy a glass or two of good cider; I have enjoyed many glasses of a wide variety of types (Sweet or Dry does it no justice even in my part of England).

To be honest, it's not a constant nagging desire to smoke, more that it has been forced upon me, rather than a conscious decision of choice. Of course, it was compounded by an oncologist who, a year later, told me that Yes, I had cancer and Yes the treatment was curative. It has been so far.

Yeah, that would make a person quit. I'm glad to hear that the treatment for your cancer was curative. May it continue to be so.

Cider question: Why do some places insist on serving it on ice? I don't drink it quickly enough that the ice won't melt and dilute the cider, which isn't that strong a drink to begin with.

Whoo-hoo!! Opening Night was a huge success. Only a few lines were missed and I missed a big cue for one of our actors, but the audience loved it anyway. Heck, they're not supposed to notice the mistakes.

GrrrraaAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rolf! I need a drink, the strongest one you have! It's so frustrating when your first day back to work after vacation is pure Hell. The fact that we were busy did not make the day go by any faster. Insider tip: when your IT department says that they have a self ticketing system for non-urgent issues, we really do prefer that you use it rather than calling us. We won't even ask you to refer to the helpful instructions for common issues that we so conveniently placed on the internal company intranet site. Of course the best part of the day is when the network goes down five minutes before we were supposed to go home. *deep breath* Ok, venting over.

Hehe, that made me think of this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8oibBJTEpc

Got Pandora blaring, hoping to get some major progress in my story done tonight. Though, the writers block does not help. If all else fails I can curl up with the copy of "Shogun" I picked up, since everyone keeps telling me it's a good book.

Rolf, Champagne for the lovely annanova in celebration.

I thank you for the champagne and wonder if I can offer a back rub after the stress of returning to the office. Hopefully today will be better.

Oh, and that's a great clip!
