scenes seen through one artist's eyes
I should'a guessed you'd find a way to work the wine into it... I probably would'a guessed, but I'm drawing a blank...So was there a rational explanation for the sign, or was it just one of those alleyway oddities that any big city thrives on ?And do we need to bring our own glass, or can we drink out of the bottle ?
Well, Owen, I'm having to fill in for our sister in the wine department and I'm doing my best. As far as I could see, which was not over the fence, there was no rational explanation for the sign. Perhaps easier to remember (ironically) than a numbered address? I suggest rather than a glass you bring 2 paper bags: 1 to put the bottle in while drinking, and one to put over your head for discretionary purposes. Don't forget to cut a hole in the head bag for your mouth, though. Chin chin!WV: mette Nice to have mette up with you in the alley.
i like the black and white pic best, i really feel my mind dissolving :-)(and so fun to take a peek to your dialogues with Owen haha)
Oh yes, Roxana, if you peek into the dialogues between Owen and myself your mind surely will dissolve!
what a wonderful sign to find - it is really enigmatic and intriguing!!
Catherine,Yes, isn't it! It stopped me in my tracks, elicted a bemused chuckle and a big "Huh??" from me. I had asked my daughter to find us an alley to wander down on our way to the grocery store and she came up with a good one.
Surely worth to write a book about. With regard to memories, oh! how I long to see them melt away into the light of eternity - yet, they might become all "white noise" and that would make them all and ever present - guess I rather have a bottle or two of that wine instead, hoping to help as well. Please have a wonderful Thursday.
Robert,Some people drink to forget, others wallow in their memories when under the influence of alcohol, and for some a bottle of wine provides a little dose of white noise to keep them humming happily in the present. But then, too, some people simply forget about drink all together. I hope your Thursday will not be a thirsty one!
I like the idea of a wine label. When the bottle was empty it might be a message from departed spirits. Medium White you say?
DCW:I think your idea stands more than the ghost of a chance for success!
Hey ! I couldn't hear what you and Roxana were going on about up there, not with this darn bag over my head ! A bag that smells suspiciously like chicken feed for some reason... have you been feeding them chickens again ???And speaking of drawing a blank, did you ever come across the album which David Crosby did long ago called "If I Could Only Remember My Name" ??? I have a copy of it here, when you open it up, there are a series of photos on the inner jacket cover, like a who's who of 60's music... collaborators included folks like Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Joni Mitchell, Jorma Kakaunen... the list goes on... But why was I talking about that... I can't even remember...:-)
Hey ! Why's that guy got a bag on his head !?!
Owen,You've got it on bag to front! I can't understand a thing you're saying. But what else is new.WV: pokersHow about if I pokers some eye-holes in that bag for you? Nah, don't bother taking it off; just stand really still--it won't hurt a bit (if you've had enough wine).
Dear Us Chickens:It's something to do with the United Winos in the Alley for Saving the Planet movement: wear a paper bag, recycle a tree. Would you like a bag for your own head? And will that be paper or plastic?:-D
Good to see things have been slurping along nicely in my absence! Fabulous idea for a wine label, agreed. Right then, lets get ourselves a vintner and try our luck!!
Saj,I hardly recognized you with that bag over your head but your accent gave you away. Lovely you could join in the back alley wine-tasting soirée. I think "Blanc de Memoire" should be our hotel house wine, don't you?
Great idea! I can see that you're very much the ideas person for our hotel, I think I might just have to stick with being the taste tester....
Excellent, Saj. You have all the necessary qualifications for being the official taste tester. I feel confident that you will be up to the cask, I mean task.
