……..  Boomerang wine

I love it when my friends drop around for dinner and bring over their latest wine find. I love to enjoy their excitement… I love to taste new wines….

…….. getting personal with my wine glass

 

I do not like to play favourites – well, except family of course. I do not have a favourite wine, I do not have a favourite food. I did not have a favourite wine glass until after I wrote my last Conversations about blog ….. Now I am coming out of the cupboard.  I do have a favourite and I have decided to name my glass thanks to some encouraging comments and discussion.

The name I have chosen is ……

The Right Honourable Glassinger, Peacekeeper, Defrayer of Crankiness and Inspirer of Witticisms.

Ok. It is kinda long, but whenever you hear me say, ‘I am looking forward to a drink with RHG’ you will know exactly who I mean. Or Humphrey Glassinger…. What do you think?

What are you going to name yours?
