Finished my bottle of Oak Creek Merlot ($2.99) yesterday - loved it. I think Merlot is my new favorite, and perhaps I'll find a little better wine than Oak Creek as well for my next one. This was followed by a bottle of Spatlese ($11) which was not chilled, but it was bottled in the Rhinehessen area (my fav) and it was TO DIE FOR. Damn I love Spatlese. Andy drinks Yellow Tail Shiraz-Cabernet ($6.99) a 60/40 mix. Not being familar with Shiraz, I bought a bottle of RedBud ($4.99) to try it. It was horrid. I spat it from my mouth. The Shiraz-Cabernet was quite nice though, but the wife ended up drinking all of that, leaving me with the Oak Creek Chardonnay. *Nasty*

Ok, so it's true SomeBritInMass sends me a cuban cigar, and imported catnip for Daisy. However, to date, only one person has dared to send me an entire box of chips and salsa. Inside the box, was a beautiful Texas A&M embossed card which read, "Eric, I thought you might like a little taste of Texas." Dude, one word, AWESOME. Thanks so much It touches me in ways my Kansan wife never could. Thanks David.

Played an awesome game of 'I Spy' branded Go Fish with the wife and our son last night. It was so much fun, but that might have just been the Spatlese. Today at work was very busy, and Carla left early to clean the house for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow - we're looking forward to the festivities there...and to view our local celebrity status on Tivo.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

The idea was to get you here prior to my wife and children arriving.

yeah. Sorry about that. I often think one-dimensionally.

what are you trying to goad me to do?

Another shiraz-blend I think you would enjoy is the Rosemount Estates Grenache Shiraz. Very nice, and befitting your apparent wine-purchasing budget, however this is not your $2.99 bottle of boones-esque quality. Its a nice berry flavor, not very 'oak-y' with just a hint of pepper for flair.

I blog in response to a fine bit of lyrical tweaking by 'the Howton'.

that would be on par with an immovable force meeting an irresistable object.

Would I get a medal? Or a pat on the back and a little feather - I could stick in my cap or pin it to my shirt, go out in the yard and poke it in the dirt, or leave it in the woods where it couldn't be found. If it fell over, would it make a sound?

I think we can give you many feathers provided you get the tar that goes along with it.

And if it did, would it be the sound that you like? Or should I do it over until I get it right? You say everything I know is wrong, so do me a favor, and play along; As the rusty gears turn...Don't be alarmed if you smell something burning upstairs, it's a little BB rolling around in a box car.
See us together maybe it wouldn't be hard to explain - If I only had a brain

two years later, I'm still confused. What's the deal with the catnip?

Everyone has their doubts about my sanity but nothing happens cause they feel sorry for me. I got the whole town under my thumb all i gotta to do is keep acting dumb.

Oh that boy there, they say, wanna die alittle on the slow side but wouldnt hurt a fly and such a gentleman - oh yes i know sure cant talk at you all though i take my hat and pretend i dont hear grinning like a half-wit from ear to ear.

I can think of a thousand ways to say hello so i start through 'em all goin' real slow they listen hard and act like they care how can they be so completely unaware of the truth the answer is always in hiding so i introduce them..

...to the killer inside me.
