New Arrival and Other Excuses

Down the middle drops one more grain of sand
They say that new life makes losing life easier to understand
Words are kind they help ease the mind, I’ll miss my old friend
And though you’ve got to go we’ll keep a piece of your soul
One goes out, one comes in.

If I don’t write something about wine soon, I’ll have to stop calling this a wine blog. My hope is that my kind readers will forgive a scarcity of posts over the next couple weeks.

Although I had no intention of bringing a puppy into my life right now, a friend had a dog that needed a good home, and I happen to be able to provide one. I’m also lucky enough to have someone in my life to help me raise him.

I’ll spare you my philosophic comparisons of young wine and young dogs. Instead, I’ll just say that I’ll be very busy in the coming weeks, doing the hard work that will pay rewards years from now, when I have a mature, well-balanced, amazing dog.

Hopefully, before long he’ll be sleeping at my feet while I write posts.

John, Sounds like quite a wise decision. And I, for one, promise to forgive.

Thanks, Farley. It's been an interesting week to say the least.

He's beautiful and looks like he'll be a handful. Enjoy!

Thanks, Golly. He is quite a handful, but lots of fun as well.
