I couldn't distinguish SE Washington's wine country from the Flint Hills of Kansas. Take a look at the picture below. Hot, arid, inhospitable. Good when the grapes must suffer. Not so good when mine do.
Everyone tells me how much they love wine country after they take a holiday. I'm pretty sure it's the wine talking, because the mesas are interesting for a moment until they turn into broiling yellow fields of dry grass.
Walla Walla: Charming downtown plopped in the middle of agricultural operations. I wish I has another day to explore it a bit.
I was reminded by my brother from another mother, Tom, that today is the 69th anniversary of D-Day. It's makes my whining so trivial!
One final note: Go Bruins! Go Heat! I'm not on the LeBron hatin' bandwagon.
