Cheers to All of Our Wonderful Moms

We have been so busy moving lately that I found myself on my own this Mother's Day.  Mary Margaret is turning our new house in Goodyear into our new home, while I work on selling our home in California.  It is a strange feeling and, I think, this might be the first time I have spent Mother's Day without the company of either my wife, my mom, my step-mom or one of my late grandmothers.  Each one of them very special in their own way.

A buddy, Anthony, was in the same boat as me and invited me to brunch at Heringer's Winery for their catered Mother's Day celebration.  It was a very blustery Winnie the Pooh like day and I did not bring a jacket.  It was cold!  Remind me of this next week when I complain about our predicted 98 degree Sunday.  As you can see, Anthony came prepared.

Mother's Day Brunch at Heringer Winery  

The delicious food and great live music made up for the weather, though, and the Strawberry Lemonade Mimosa was fantastic.  We were also fortunate to share our table with a family that became our new friends. It was a fun afternoon, but one thing we both agreed upon is that moms do make the world go around.  We missed their company today.

With all of that being said, I want to raise my glass, filled with our delicious new drink, to all of the wonderful moms in the world.  CHEERS and Happy Mother's Day! ! !

Good morning, Endre Barath, Jr. We have a surprisingly good group of wineries on the Delta.  Anthony and I are both wine club members at Heringer and enjoy their wines. It is about 15 minutes from our house, but when you are sitting at their winery, you feel like you are a hundred miles away from all the chaos of the surrounding area.

It was a very nice day, Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400.  Anthony and I enjoyed the time and the good conversation.  Next year will be even better! 

Good morning, Roy Kelley.  Thank you and I hope you have a great Monday!

It was unusual for us as well, Nina Hollander, Broker.  It is ironic that next weekend will be unusual too, but almost 100 degrees.  The average, though, will show perfect weather!  Funny how that works.  Have a great week!

Good morning, Brian England.  I am almost always prepared and then have to hand over my jacket to Mary Margaret.  If she was with me yesterday, we would have both been unprepared.  I thought about taking the table cloth off the table and using it as a wrap, but I thought the hosts would have frowned upon that. 😉

Brian England, where were you when I needed you?  Great idea!

I am sure they would have frowned upon that, but you should have asked to look through their lost and found stash for a loaner, haha.

Ray your story reminded me of a chamber of commerce wine tasting I went to year ago.  Holy moly it was freezing.  Some nice guy did take off a tablecloth and brought it over to me.  It saved the evening!  Glad that you and your buddy went to the brunch and met some new friends.  And soon - you'll be reunited with your lovely wife!  Cheers!

Hi Anna!  I really did think about the tablecloths.  I think I was closer to purchasing one of their sweatshirts.  Fortunately, the sun did come out just enough to take the edge off.  Cheers to you, Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker!

Hi Raymond- I'm glad that you weren't alone!!!!  Very sorry that you were cold...nothing worse than being somewhere like that and being cold. I did once go into the gift shop once and bought a sweatshirt just to get warm. I'm sure that Mary Margaret is having fun getting your new home ready. 

BTW- Larry went on our "honeymoon" in Palm Beach while I stayed behind in Houston to get the house ready to sell.

I think Larry has me beat with that one, Kathy Streib.  We went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon.  I caught my first tarpon there.  Mary Margaret left the camera in the room.  She did not think we were going to catch anything.  That was the first real test of our marriage.  😂

I would be very happy at your table, Endre Barath, Jr. I love both of those choices depending on the meal and the day.  Bordeaux type wines are the best, though.  And despite what they say about Merlot in the movie, Sideways, I do Merlot as well. Please do not hold that against me.  Warning, very adult language, Sideways clip.

Hi Ray:

It must have felt odd for you but you are working toward your goal of moving to AZ and that's a good thing.

How nice to have spent time with your friend over a Mother's Day brunch, even though it was chilly. Sounds like you had a great time!

Jeff
