I'm a little slow in getting this post written. Just been taking it easy and enjoying summer.
One of the enjoyable things we've done is the Grape Stomp our neighbor holds each year. The crowd gathered under the trees:
The grapes are ripe and ready:
And there is always good fun as in the "Lucy Look Alike" contest (from the "I Love Lucy" show where Lucy and Ethel stomp grapes) and of course, getting to stomp the grapes ourselves:
|Friends stomping the grapes|
|That's me stepping into the grapes|
|Friends stepping onto their shirts|
|The finished T|
|Purple feet...ok, they weren't this purple |
but trust me, they were purple!
Great music too. This year we got to hear Purple Velvet Fox, a jazz band, (don't you just love that name? They were fantastic!):
|Really bad picture of them; they were staying in the shade of the canopy|
Good food and wine - of course. All done to support the Volunteer fire departments of Montalba and Elmwood.
Bruce and I had such fun:
|Actually got a picture of Bruce. He usually has the camera.|
