Here we go!! After much preparation and planning, The Grape Escape is here! Yay!
Reservations were made, packing was done, and I had my passport all ready as I wait for my special flight. This is my first passport, by the way. Except for visiting Canada, Mexico and Hawai'i I never been on foreign soil.
Greg showed up to fly me from my humble surroundings in Georgia to glamourous Italy. (Hubba Hubba)
Greg kinda messed up (he said I distracted him by looking in his eyes so much … aw well) and we ended up in Egypt!! Opps! My Bad! [blush]
So, we finally made it to Italy. Greg got in some reading and I caught up on some much needed rest …
... David Niven stopped by. So he and Greg squeezed in a little swimming while ....
… I took a little ride with a few of the locals … WAHOO!!!
Then y’all showed up …
OK, all these distractions had to stop and we stomped the grapes.
This is my first attempt at wine making.
Don’t worry, I washed my feet first, and it wasn’t even Saturday.
Hey, now that we’re done with the stomping, how about we tour the ruins?
Huh, can we? Huh?!
I want this to be my ride (those are Moto Guzzi‘s, by the way).
The always lovely and gracious Audrey showed up and said we had to get ready for the party … PARTY??!! OK!! There went my motorcycle tour.
Does anyone have a tiara I can borrow?
Mine is in the shop this week. (Along with my Lear Jet and Lamborghini ... yeaaaah, RIGHT!!)
I made the reservations for Vespas to convey all my bloggy friends.
Keep saying “Momentum is your friend …” and you’ll be fine.
I'll be in the rear where it's safer.
Hope you don’t mind, some of y’all may have to share.
Thought I’d better pop off a postcard to Sweetie back in the States. I already miss him so but he had to stay behind and babysit our three dogs.
(Thanks Vintage Postcards for the Picnik.com free on-line photo editing.)
I’ll help pour the bubbly .. ! Let the unabashed imbibing begin!
Better keep Vodka Mom away from the bar. :o)
I haven't had this much fun since the world was young. Let’s do it again next year.
Thanks for inviting me Muse Swings.
Now if I can just find Greg so he can fly me home. I hope he doesn't take the long way around the barn again ....
