Napa seems more friendly that way then Fredericksburg.




From the Fred. TX wine association page:
Do all the wineries charge tasting fees? For the most part, yes. The fees vary and so does the tasting. Some wineries include an imprinted glass and the number of tastes can vary as well. The range of tasting fees is about $5 to $15. Also, some wineries will refund your tasting fee with a certain level of purchase (like 3 or 6 bottles of wine). Most also offer case discounts.

Last night I grilled cabbage using the foil wrap method with Annies pork chops and stuffing (not as good Earlenes Oyster Stuffing...) but it was a great dinner for a couple of mutants. Well anyway, we had cabbage leftover and somehow we gotta out of Hays Kansas (MMDC Resort) with 4 sausages from Warrens. So guess what we had for dinner.

We should have driven it up to MMDC West and made dinner for Don and Colleen. It's only 4 hours and 40 minutes up the road.

It's so funny to watch a covey of Arizona quail run down the street. Jabbering away. Stopping here and there. The other morning it looked like they were chasing a rabbit up the street. But then he stopped and they did too. Then they started to roll and the rabbit ran with them.

Guess we need to see if we can find a list. The one I am going to I will buy a case but they don't refund and I don't need a tasting session at.

I will go through those winery links and see what I find on prices. We went to 5 wineries and they all charged between 10-15. We were sent with list from friends and bought 6+ bottles per winery. But we didn't go to all of them there so I will research more.

Thanks Dwayne! I'd be lost without your help.
What model refrigerator is that? My info says that the Norcold gaskets cannot be replace and the whole door needs replacing. Hmmm! (I did fix my gasket with Gorilla Tape)

Yep! Attack dog. My vet said that if they ever put the brain of a Chihuahua in a Rottweiler he would give up his practice.

Bugs stand out like little LED's flying through the sky, anything with eyes immediately light up, when I run my dryer in the house the exhaust vent makes it looks like a storm outside, fun stuff to watch but then again, I'm pretty easy to entertain in that regard.
Besides, Carl enjoys watching grass grow 24/7.

Wayne, my frig is a Dometic. They do sell just the gaskets, but they are REALLY proud of them. I bought a cut-to-fit set that comes as 4 L-shaped pieces that have the corners already formed. I paid $36 vs $200+ and it installs with double sided tape (another $16). I'll let you know if I wasted $52 and 6 hours of labor.

Replace the door when the seal goes bad? Sounds like another gotcha by an RV product supplier. No wonder people hate Norcold!

This is my week for tough repairs. Yesterday I took the black tank gate valve off hoping the leak was just debris blocking the gate from fully closing. WRONG! The part will be here tomorrow. It's a cheap part and easy to replace, but not any fun even after a through cleaning of the black tank. At least the sun is shining

Ok, I'm checking in, Mutant brothers and sisters. We are still in beautiful Virginia. Love LOVE it here. For some reason, my phone won't let me post more than one pic at a time, so here comes a string of photos and accompanying stories...

The apple crumble pie I made from scratch yesterday with Virginia Granny Smiths ...

You are all invited over for pie and coffee. I made enough pie dough for 3 more pies.
