John wayne in the longest day movie

Watching the River Flow

I am sitting here, East of Moab, watching the Colorado River flow. On the far shore there is a family of river otters playing and diving for fish.  It is cold and clear and the red cliffs, with their desert varnish, are topped with white white snow like giant red cream puffs.  Yummo


I have an old friend who lives just over the hill in Castle Valley – a little slice of heaven.  I claim that I taught him to make-out and French kiss.  This was when I was 16 and he was 14.  We were at the drive-in movie watching “The Longest Day”.  He now claims that he was scared and it was one of the longest nights of his life.  I think that he should own up to the fact that it was probably one of the best nights of his life.

We are talking about our decisions for the distillery regarding bottles, labels, etc. Last Friday we visited The Arizona Distilling Company in Tempe.  They opened their doors last April.  They are making a Bourbon and a wheat whiskey.  We also tasted a gin that they had just made that was fragrant with lavender.  They are the second distillery to open in Arizona since prohibition and we plan to be the third.  We have all of our licenses now and are ready to start producing.

I will keep you posted on the progress.
