Welcome to the show.
The big news…MAX IS BACK! Our sweet boy had been missing for a week and a half. The prodigal orange returned on Friday, tired, hungry, and dirty, but very much alive! He is recuperating nicely, and in great spirits. Thanks to everyone who offered prayer, support and encouragement. And now, as Max would say, onward and Edward!

Wine of the Week
Xanthos 2017 California Red
Admittedly, this was a sale item, a red blend at a price too good to turn down. As it turns out, we liked it so much, we went and bought extra bottles!
It could be this wine was inexpensive because it doesn’t break down the grapes it is made from. We are guessing it is primarily Cabernet, with some Pinot. At any rate, this is a fine wine which can be served before or during dinner, pairing well with virtually anything. (Sorry to sound vague, but it really is that versatile.) Available at Lee’s Discount Wine and Liquor.
