I must have drank too much wine prior to my nephew and niece arriving at the winery-I emptied a few barrels. William turned 19 the day before traveling to DCW so I waited until he got here to give him his gift. As our tradition has been, I always do something unique in "wrapping" the gift. Buried it 10 feet deep on a beach, hid it in cement and even did my version of FEAR FACTOR. Being a Vintner, it only seemed logical that it be wine related this year.
All that was said to him was it was hidden in a barrel on the crush pad. Now what kind of person has to drive a fork lift to find his present-MY NEPHEW! I had great laughs watching him move barrels, spin them around and peek inside the bung holes! I absolutely love the mental image ofhis expression when I told him it was hidden in the barrel. Even more watching them peek into the barrels. Sometimes I'm stunned at the stupid things I think are funny-love that my niece and nephew can laugh with their Aunt Bug.
