Update from Florida Estates Winery
Greetings Fellow Wine Lovers,
Autumn is here. Actually, it will start on Friday but you can feel the chill in the air. The leaves are falling from the trees (or was that from Hurricane Irma?).
Happy Thanksgiving! I was going to talk about the origins of Thanksgiving but when I started to do some research, I was finding all sorts of stuff that was not what I remembered about the holiday. I then was going to share with you all of this “new and interesting” stuff about Thanksgiving but I decided not to bore you with it. I have found that most of the stuff we know about holidays, just about any holiday, is not real. The things we know has been changed
over the years to make it all easier for us. The Indians and Pilgrims became friends, had a great big feast to celebrate the harvest, and we still do it to this day (only with family, not Indians). That is a lot easier to deal with than all the other things that happened. (Search “Thanksgiving” to learn more.) So, to sum it up…enjoy the parade, watch the dog show, cheer for your football team, eat lots of turkey, and Happy Thanksgiving!
This month’s Tip Jar is for Raffle Rescue. They keep your pet in your home if you are having problems and can not take care of your pet. It is easier to save a pet in a home than it is to get it adopted from a shelter.
