The 01/19/13 Joy Jar

18 Jan

Moi is trying to learn how operate her new smart phone. Moi must be the last person in America to get a smart phone, all the twelve year olds have them. Moi’s old phone was considered dumb by smart phone standards, but the phone was way smarter than moi. It is at times like this that a little glass of wine makes the moment so much more mellow.. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is a really good glass of wine.


Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.”
John Keats


Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
Ernest Hemingway


I love everything that is old; old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wines.”

Life’s too short to drink cheap wine…”

To take wine into our mouths is to savor a droplet of the river of human history”
