Dave and I just broke into some of our souvenirs from Canada.
(And by “Dave and I”, I mean just “I”.)
That would be a maple ice wine cookie and it is PHENOMENAL.
Dave isn’t sure what he thinks about them, so I made up his mind for him: he hates them.
More for meeeeeee!
Dear Canadian readers,
PLEASE SEND ME MORE.
Or I’ll just move to Canada: Ice wine, maple cookies, hockey… what more could I want?
Sounds like a plan.
But until then, I have to go play softball for the church team.
I was a really good softball player—7 years ago. I don’t think I’ve played since then. This will be extremely embarrassing. Although Dave tells me that the team is so bad that they can only benefit from someone who knows how to play the sport.
Let’s hope that’s true!
What sports did you play in high school?
I lived and breathed softball for most of my life. It wasn’t until my sophomore year of college that I started to run.
Have you ever had Ice Wine?
It’s wine that’s made from grapes that are harvested while frozen (a mid-night in January). Harvesters can only get one drop of nectar from each grape so it takes about 80 bushels of grapes to make one bottle (which is about 1/2 the size of a normal bottle of wine). And it is sweet, sweet, sweet… just the way I like it!
