Whew, what a day yesterday! All that rain, I got soaked walking to the Post Office to mail off my taxes. I know, I had a few days to spare, but I'm not a procrastinator.
When I got home Wally's Spring Newsletter was in my mailbox. Exciting! Last night after work, I made a cup of tea, snuggled under the afghan - it was a chilly one - and perused the offerings for which wine I might spend my lavish refund.

Ooh, look at this one on page 11! A 1996 Chateau Latour for only $9, 599.99, down from $11, 999.99, a steal! Well, it is a 6L bottle, which is like 8 regular bottles, so that brings it down to only $1, 199.99/bottle. You figure, one bottle for four people. I'd need to know 32 people to drink this thing, 32 people I like enough to give them a $50.00 glass of wine. Okay, that's out.
This 1945 Chateau Palmer, page 13, looks pretty good at only $5, 599.99. I'd have to like only four people for that one. Still...I'd have to like them $1,399.99-worth. Hmmm...and 1945, that's like really old.
(You don't know how bummed I am right now that the wine-ordering scene from Steve Martin's movie, The Jerk, isn't on youtube, so the quote will have to make due (lifted from The Celluloid Pantry):)
As for the tax refund...wine spelunking for the 99% will soon tell.
