One of those outings was to a local winery. While I was sitting in the waiting room here
I sort of shirt-tailed myself on this outing: I am not a resident of the assisted living apartments, although sometimes I do need quite a bit of assistance with my life, and I don’t have a relative who lives there, but our friends Judy and Charlie do have a relative living there and they went, so I tagged along with them.
This is not an upscale winery like one might find in Sonoma.
This is the “down home” variety run by a nice couple and their kids.

They have big stainless steel tanks with wine in various stages of fermentation.
They have baskets of big bottles in other stages of production.
They have entered their wines at state competitions and have won some medals.
And after we had all had a taste of this one and a taste of that one, he came out with a mason jar of peach wine that isn’t quite ready yet.
Many of those on the tour thought they might like a bottle of that peach wine by-in-by.
A very good time was had by all.
