A.

I was listening to Dylan just yesterday while driving around and remembered how good of an album "Bringing It All Back Home" is. My heaven!

One of my neighbors put it this way:

"I am not going to drink $10 wine just so that my DIL will be able to drink $20 wine!"

I heard that if you play a country music song backwards, you get your truck back, your trailer back, your dog back, your Bible back, your significant other back, etc...

After inflation that may be equivalent to a $5 bottle of wine!

Not even close. We haven't discussed pickup trucks, jail time, beer, a lyin' SO, bars, or mothers.

I was going to post the title of a Barbara Mandrell tune, then decided she is not country.

Loretta IS country.

I think her steel player was Hal Rugg, but can't find a good clip of him

I went to a party one time given by a very nice professor. I asked him if I should bring anything. He said, "sure, bring some wine".

So I went to the shop, there were three guys behind the counter. I said, "What's the worst wine you have?". They all said, "NIGHT TRAIN!". So I got some.

That's some god-awkward wine.

You're braver than me, I was always afraid to drink it.

It worked with my non-awkward wealth budget. And was kind of a hit at the party: people said, "Ewwww!!" but laughed.

I actually did buy a case of three buck chuck at the same time I was searching for the caviar. That's how us wealthy people do it.

I had to look up "Night Train" to see what it is. Shows how little I get out.

It is a "fortified" wine. Hmmm... Sherry is a fortified wine. Same with port. So, that by itself should not make it bad. No?

PS. And about two-buck chuck ($3 in my state), that wine in blind tests beats some snobby wines. That tells you something.

Ya pick a bunch of Concord grapes, squish em a little. ferment 7 days in a beer crock, and then squeeze the juice out thru an old T shirt.

Purple Passion.

heh heh heh - but then some might consider that a tad beyond fugal. Later when I got 'rich' I graduated to Gallo.

I dunno. I am not sure but it may take more than a few bucks to buy enough grapes to make a bottle of wine. It is easier to buy the TJ wine which, as they claim, even won some awards. You think any wine I make at home is going to win anything? And then, there's the cost of the T shirt.

Oh, you said used T shirt. I am going to be sure I wash it first, and just not pick one out of the hamper. And I'd better not use a dryer sheet when I dry that T shirt, else people are going to think I lace my wine with Bounce or Downy. That would be awkward.
