The View from the Tenderloin



The View from the Tenderloin

As many of you know, I spent ten years driving very happy tourists around the wineries of Napa and Sonoma. It was a delightful way to make a good living, I was able to meet people from all over the world. The wineries, and the staff who worked them, were a delight. I retired the year before the first of the great fires that have ravaged this area. I could list wineries that have burned just in the last twenty four hours, but I can't do it. It's devastating. In these busy times I would still take a few moments to assuage the grief I feel in my heart.

I don't know that I can watch the debate tonight. Trump offends me on a level that I just can't cope with. My faith in Joe is as solid as it was in PBO. I trust him to keep his calm and deliver what the citizens of this great nation so desperately want. Leadership.

Hold those dear to you close

God save the Republic.

1. we feel your pain

We have been to hundreds of the winery's in the Napa valley & the Sonoma area, as well as Oregon, Washington, Idaho & numerous other states & Canadian provinces.

It breaks my heart to see what this administration has done to our climate change accords & alliances.

This is only going to get worse.

We MUST GOTV & elect Joe & Kamala, or there might not be a world for our grandchildren.

3. If it were golf courses burning I wouldn't care ...

But itís wineries so Iím completely distraught.

Jesusí first miracle was at Cana turning water into wine and Iíve always considered wine ďholy water.Ē

Praying the weather cooperates and firefighters prevail.

2. I'm with you...

I frequent the wine country of Santa Ynez and Los Olivos (Sideways country) and can't imagine the devastation being visited on Napa and Sonoma right now. Will start watching the debates with a glass of wine...will probably last 5 minutes. Wifely unit wants to watch, so I'll most likely retire with a good book...and the wine of course...
