Isn't She Lovely

Another week has passed and my mullet is growing out nicely. The unfortunate thing is, mullets aren't nearly as "en vogue" up here in the country as they are down in Los Angeles. Ironic, I know. The business in the front part makes me feel like a desk jockey. The party in the back part makes me feel like an artist without a canvas. I'm afraid I've been tricked.

I would cut it all to one length, but then I would be neither business in the front nor party in the back. I would be like that person who brings a party ball to a soirée (remember those?) only to leave after half a beer at 10:15.

Beverly Hills might have ruined me.

I'm really struggling with my mullet you guys.

Let's move on to another topic, shall we?

I've got it!

Two things happened 9 years ago at this this time in 2010. For those of you familiar with the Adams Ranch Vineyard, you know that we planted about 4 acres of Estrella Clone Syrah in 2005. What you may not know is that we soldiered on to plant more grapes almost every successive year, unconcerned about crippling poverty, zero market presence and chronic halitosis.

Yea, though we walked through the valley of unbridled ambition, we feared not getting the shaft.

No, instead we planted GRENACHE!

What is now known as "The Fin", our first acre of Grenache, is celebrating it's 9th Birthday! What could be better than that you may ask? Well I will tell you.

On February 13th 2010 at 11:45pm, Ciera and I welcomed our Daughter Elizabeth into this world. Today she is also 9.

Happy Birthday Muffin!
