Picture of the Day & Box Wine

An English Summer

An English Summer


I am a fan of Trader Joe’s wines, specifically, their boxed California cabernet. Had a short glass after dinner while watching the Angel / Dodger game. It seemed as though there was still some left in the box but little came out.

Took the plastic pouch out of the box — there was wine left — a good deal of it. Snipped one corner of the pouch and held it over my empty glass — I was able to pour an entire glass of wine from a seemingly empty container.

Well, there are still a couple of sips remaining in my glass — the game is tied at 4 – 4 in the bottom of the ninth.

Bottoms up!

The good life — Had a glass of wine with and after dinner last night — Trader Joe’s boxed cabernet sauvignon — a drinkable red. Finished one glass and poured another. Drank about half of that before nodding off on the couch. Woke up to the cats rushing and jumping around — evidently, my playing with them earlier had not tired them out sufficiently — and put the unfinished wine glass in the fridge. While watching the Angel game this afternoon, it occurred to me that I had a glass of wine already poured and waiting for me. It was now a very cool red wine and its color goes well with the red of the Angels’ uniforms.

Eighth inning and the Angels are leading 7 – 1 — Go Angels!

Oh, yeah, the wine was still quite drinkable and the glass now sits empty. Hmmmm . . . I think I’ll have a re-fill after dinner.


Took this picture in southern Oregon a couple of years ago. Both Oregon and northern California, along US 101 offer several places you’re likely to encounter elk during the summer vacation season. This is Dean Creek on Oregon 38 inland of Reedsport.
