So this evening we finish the bottle of Chateau Cheapo half way through supper. So I wander off to the 'Cellar' which is in fact a cupboard on the cold side of the house where we keep the wine, and have. Gurn. Yes! There's another bottle of Chateau Cheapo so I grab it and twist the lid.

Then I think 'Hang on, this isn't an ordinary bottle!'

Sigh! Yes, I've just cracked one of the 'Good Ones'.

FUCK!

Oh well, waste not, want not......

Life's too short to drink cheap wine. Especially if it smells like wee. Razz

Kathi caught on to my same ploy after about three tries.  

Actually, she probably caught on after the first, but "enjoyed" the mistake a few times before she objected. queen

Trust you have suffered no remorse.  Very Happy

No remorse. Heaven forfend! Oh FYI the 'Wee' reference was related to a wine we enjoyed down at the vastly overpriced and usually disappointing bottom pub in Bungendore.

Jude, Mark and I went down and had a meal and ordered a bottle of red and while it was acceptable, (If overpriced like everything at the 'Bottom'.) it did indeed have an aroma of wee! It can't of been too bad as we had another bottle, from hazy memory.......

You must be nearing "sainthood" Pete, when Jesus turned the water into wine at the wedding, the guests thought the father of the bride had saved the best till last.

nice one Pete! Moral here

Never buy el cheapo, always buy quality plonk at a dealing place - life is too short to drink something you don't enjoy to the fullest. Life is also a journey.

A few good people I know have bit the bullet in recent months, some of them in our motorcycling fraternity. Makes you have a good long look at your journey. Cheap plonk does not come into the picture - you never know, today might the last you ever get, so drink up and enjoy. If by some lucky stroke, tomorrow comes, you can do it all over but do it better.

No, I am not getting all maudlin; some years back I had a brain tumour removed, so now I wake up in the morning and go "you beauty, a bonus day". Doesn't hurt to be reminded of our mortality but FFS don't dwell on it - enjoy and appreciate it ever day, you just never know!

+1 Tony.

I've got a bottle of 1971 Chateau Yaldara vintage port that I was supposed to open on my 50th, but forgot during the drunken festivities. I've had it since I was 21. I might bring it along to the next Ghetto Australis run and drink it with my GRiSO brothers.

Mark,
Don't waste it on us drunken bums!
Sit at home and enjoy.

Ralf, I was being facetious. I'm not letting the good stuff near you lot. Evil or Very Mad
