A former high school classmate and cherished old friend when reconnecting with Roger through Facebook quoted the old saying: "When God closes a door, he opens a window." The years have seen a number of life changes for us that make that adage ring true. After being blessed with good fortune, a wonderful son and great experiences, we decided to look out that window and prepare for more of what this wonderful life has to offer. We hope through our blog to share our journey from this point forward with family, with friends and with many others. Hopefully we'll make some new friends along the way. We hope you find our tales of some interest, even amusement and perhaps an inspiration for you to treat each and every day as an opportunity and an adventure to share with those who are an important part of your life.

Cuenca Wine Guy Bulletin para once de Agosto!
For my ex-patriate friends in Cuenca who really miss their California Zinfandel, here's a special wine bulletin: I saw Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel on the shelves at Super Maxi El Vergel this Saturday. Granted it was at roughly twice the retail ($28) you probably would have paid in the US of A but then again it is the first spotting of either a Zinfandel or Primitivo I've ever made in Ecuador (including some extensive restaurant wine list reading) and if you've been in severe Zinfandel withdrawal, it might be worth the splurge to you.
Thought you would like to know....Sainte!
