With absolutely no intentions of not posting last Friday, at the last minute, I decided not to because quite frankly, I had nothing to say... zip, zilch, nada. Nothing in the tank. I did enjoy reading quite a few other Blog's while being lazy, all of them so very good. There is a lot of talent out there. OK, that said...
Well, you would think we mark our calendar for all the Wine Festivals throughout the year. But then again... they are fun, so yeah, we like to hang where they pour wine. And the music is not bad either.
So, last weekend, League City held its 1st Annual "Uncorked" Wine and Music Festival and we thought we would check it out. It helps that we live just 5 minutes from the park where it was held. We called up some friends that are "wine-ers" as well and invited them. It sucks
|Looks like a "Hole in the Wall" place, but it's actually quite nice...|
|Through these gates... Walter Hall Park in League City|
|One of the Early Bands performing a "Sound Check" prior to playing...|
|I was asked: "Did you get a pic of that young girl? Well, that was her Grand-daughter." So, here she is...|
|My Buddy, "Boom-Boom," Myself, and my wine glass of Whiskey...|

|From Last Night (Thursday)|
Recipe's: Since Donna and I have been on the Gluten Free bandwagon, we have been eating more Salad's with our meals. That said, I have tried to find several different Salad recipe's to keep from eating the "same old thing" every night. All have been really good thus far, but one that I found was just a complete "Knocked it out of the park" home run!!! We both really like Salad Recipe's that have a homemade dressing and this particular recipe had just that. I found it on Pinterest and it is on my "Ain't No Gluten Here" Board. From "Laylita's Recipe's," you will absolutely find your smile with Mango, Avocado, & Arugula Salad with Spicy Orange Vinaigrette. Hope you can give it a try.
Music: While listening to Pandora over the last couple of weeks, I've heard this song a few times and it is truly one of my fave's. It will no doubt get you in the mood for a little "Boogie-Woogie." So, my song selection for this week is from Lynyrd Skynyrd. I really hope you will check out their Live Performance from 1977, when they just "nail" Call Me The Breeze. Please experience Gary Rossington on lead guitar and then Billy Powell on piano. Holy Smokes!!! They were absolutely on fire. You will find your smile...
Market Watch: Well, "Goin' South" should be the theme for Facebook over the last two weeks, as it dipped to 25.58 at the close yesterday. The Market as a whole, however, is very strong right now, maintaining its power at over 14,500.
The End: Another week is in the books and I am very happy that you stopped by. Thank You so much and I look forward to seeing you back again next week. Have a great Easter weekend.
Be safe, be smart, and always Smile... It's "Happy Friday"
adios... vaya con dios
