Cold, dreary, damp evenings are made for forcing the dog out of the recliner, sipping a wine and just doing some light reading. Monday evening that was the exact weather conditions locally, and there was little of interest on television. The wine of choice was a 2005 Kinkead Ridge Syrah, a local wine that is drinking well at this point in its life.
During the reading I came across this quote from Oliver Goldsmith and decided to share.
I love everything that's old; old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wine.
If he had added 'old dogs' it would have been perfect.
