A lazy Saturday afternoon at Corcoran

We recently had a cousin visiting.  He arrived by way of San Diego, where he had recently gotten out of the Navy, and South Carolina, where he picked up his new puppy, Lulu.  So yeah, four whole days in the car including one with a 10 week old puppy and you're ready to get off … Continue reading A lazy Saturday afternoon at Corcoran

Or as I like to call it 'Graduation at JMU in the rain....dear god is it over yet when can we go home I think I can literally feel myself catching pneumonia?'  Remember our trip down to graduation?  If not, see 'Headed West for a Special Weekend' for part 1 of this saga.  The weather … Continue reading Graduation, Veramar, Bogati (and Bojangles)…a perfect day!

Wine O’Clock Friday – May 12, 2017

Starting today we're adding a weekly review about a specific local wine. Every Friday, a member of the squad who goes by "BB" (meet us at a winery some day to find out why) will write a non-professional, sometimes sarcastic, and always honest review of some local wine she happens to pick up that week. … Continue reading Wine O’Clock Friday – May 12, 2017
