Why Hello There, Delicious Wine Breakfast!

Sometimes, it’s just good to work at Ridge.

And in saying that, please don’t mean me to mean that it’s ever not good to work at Ridge.

It’s just that sometimes, the fact that IT gave me, without even asking for it, a double-wide monitor just because they “happened to notice” that I’d been “working on a lot of spreadsheets lately” … well, it’s just that sometimes work ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

That said, my fluency, my artistry, my complete mastery of spreadsheets really is so legendary that sometimes, not unlike Eddie Van Halen, I kind of have to play with my back to the audience. So they can’t see what I’m doing. Because it’s just too awesome.

But the point is, sometimes it’s just good to work at Ridge.

Because sometimes I’m good,

and when I’m good,

sometimes Santa Draper

leaves presents for me

under my little blogger tree.

  1. Well, I have heard of some names directed at Mr Draper, but Santa?
    However, in response to James, above, my one and only 1976 Fiddletown was opened about 15 years ago when it was then
    MAG NIF ICENT.

    However, and from a fading memory, it was not intended to be immortal. But then, having enjoyed a 1993 Petite Sirah with a stated ‘life’ of 5 -7 years from 1995, I really would not worry. That was quite remarkable!

    But surely, shouldn’t you be really considering a 1982 wine for such an auspicious occasion?

  2. Only one thing to say about those guys – Damn!

  3. Do you need an assistant?…I know my way around a spreadsheet me-self!;-)

  4. I’m curious about the Fiddletown. I recently picked up the 1982 to give to my son on his 30th birthday in November. How was this bottle?
