Our favorite across-the-street neighbor stopped by at 11 this morning. We were still in bed but heard the distinct squeeeeeeeek of our storm door opening and both looked at each other with the “are you expecting anyone?” look. Turned out, they had bought tickets to the jazz concert at the winery for today but decided it was too hot for them to be outside all afternoon. So, they gave their tickets to us.
It sure was a hot day. But, we stayed cool drinking lots (2+ bottles) of cold wine, eating ice cream (yummy Ben and Jerry’s) and enjoyed some personal fans courtesy of a local bank that was advertising there.
I don’t listen to jazz very often, but I will admit the music was relaxing. I had no idea Wayne Brady was a vocalist in addition to being a comedian. His performance was great. We also heard Kyle Wolverton play the saxophone; and Jesse Cook, a guitarist. That was it; we only survived the heat through 2 1/2 performers before packing it in (and realizing one of us had way more wine than we should have!). Total, we endured about 1 1/2 hours of pre-show sun, and about 6 hours of the show in the sun. The high today was 86°F. Good thing they had cold wine by the bottle (it is a winery after all).
We thanked Bob and Kay for the tickets by delivering a couple bottles of wine for them to enjoy (during the cool evening hours) at home.
