(8 bottles of red, a magnum of champagne, and a batch of fudge - that should hold us for a while.)
    Congrats to Niece Elizabeth and the DinK clan!

    I retrieved the young Turks, Felix and Oscar, from the dorms on Friday. Oakland was the wrong kind of zoo and we got the heck out of there. They survived their first year with very good grades, no encounters with law enforcement (that me and Mrs. Turk know about), and only one trip to the emergency room.

    Back in the day when I was broke and starving, I was extremely grateful when parents took us out to eat (is Darryl's still around?), and I always imagined someday taking the kids and their crew out someplace similar that they liked and melting the credit card to pay it forward. But in this day and age, they have so many food options on the swipe card that are practically 24/7 that they just roll their eyes and say, "It's not worth the hassle. Can we just go get Chipotle or Primanti's instead?" So we make do with a couple boxes of Mrs. Turk's chocolate chip cookies.

    Talented, funny, always interesting and entertaining.
    +1.

    Have not seen Mr. Snider live, but his tunes show up in one of my music feeds, including "Statistician Blues" and a live version of "Devils Backbone Tavern." I would love to see Mike Cross if he's still out and about. It's been many many moons...

    I’ve seen him twice — about 20 years apart. One of my absolute favorites. Stream “The Storyteller” if you get a chance.

    I hope the ER trip was relatively minor. No chipotle. Lunched at Hello Bistro, dinner at Eleven diwntown, brunch at Thr Porch, and final dinner at Penn Brewery. Penn Brewery even let us bring in the celebratory magnum of champagne. Except for lunch, meals included Boyfriend Max and his family. Final dinner included Roommate Jenny. We even had reserved seating at graduation. A great weekend all around.

    Darryl's went mostly out of business. There is still one in Greensboro and that is it.

    The sounds of spring in Kansas - tornado sirens. I really need to keep a few wine glasses and a corkscrew in the basement.

    Guessing that a Pinot Gris pairs well with spam.

    Everything pairs well proper Pop Tart. Frankly, more a job of grabbing a bottle of wine and then trying to pair the Pop Tart to it.

    That isn't an issue. Plenty of bottles available.
