Vino for Stan and Happy Anniversary


This post is dedicated to my Italian friend, Stan, who is affectionately known among local golfers as "Stan the Sand Man." That's because he often finds himself in sand traps on the golf course. He is also a lover of fine wine and has been married to a saint named Ginger for 50 years. Happy Anniversary!

Congrats to your friend.

We were in Yosemite in May and they still required chains if you heading to the back country. It's a beautiful place..

Congratulations are in order for a couple who survived 50 years together.
You and Sharon must have been reading each others minds as you both posted a bottle of wine today.

Happy Anni to Stan and Ginger. Cool looking bottle.

Your comment about collecting is so true. Why do we 'need' these things. No more for me either. MB

A very nice tribute to a good friend. I sampled a few Italian wines last year when I was in Italy. The Italians have the whole food and wine thing down pretty good.

Someone suggested this was a New York City driver, yelling and raising her fist for people and cars to get out of the way.
