The Weekend Cometh

The two indispensible items for this weekend’s trip? 1) Cowboy boots, and 2) a corkscrew. Ha! I bet you’ll never guess where I’m going. In fact, I’m so confident in your inability to guess where I’m going I’m just going to go ahead and put you out of my misery by telling you. My friend and I are going to leave the men/children behind and travel to an eastern Washington bed-and-breakfast. And there, we will sleep in a teepee. But, no, not some rustic KOA campground special and smelling vaguely of mildew teepee, but a teepee with hand-hewn log furniture including full-sized beds with Pendleton blankets and hand-braided rugs on the plank floor. And then, the next morning, we go on our wine tasting tour of the local vineyards—our horseback wine tasting tour. Because folks, you may not be able to get away with driving drunk, but there’s no law on the books says you can’t throw a leg up over ol’ Blaze and sing old A.M. top 40 radio songs as he staggers along the trail to the next winery’s tasting room. And this, this, sounds damn close to my idea of heaven on earth.

    That sounds like a blast!!!! Have a fantastic time! And don't forget to sing a rounsing chorus of "Run Joey Run", since you'll be singing bad 1970's Top 40 songs. lol ;pI hope you take some good pics and blog them!

    Thanks, JoJo. Yes, I intend to take pictures. Of course, my intentions under the influence of wine do not always match my intentions under more sober conditions. We'll see what develops!I'll work Run, Joey Run into the line up. Right after Hooked on a Feeling. And The Night Chicago Died. And, of course, Seasons in the Sun. Any other requests?

    It sounds utterly fantastic except for the horse riding, which terrifies me. Hope it went great!! I wish you had a feed for my bloglines. I am getting over here SO LATE. 😦
