Another Afternoon with Elsa

November 20

It takes a long time to grow young. ~ Pablo Picasso

As previously noted, Elsa Lee has had an every other weekend run at Carlos Creek Winery. We don’t mind. In fact, we are grateful. Nay, thanksgiving?

Women deserve to have more than twelve years between the ages of twenty eight and forty. ~ James Thurber

[Before the winery, we dropped by Cherry Street Books for a book signing by Jamie Stoudt, an author from Stillwater, MN . . . ]

[Specifically, to pick up Don’t Get Caught, the venue for which is Alexandria, Minnesota. Legal thriller readers will find ‘Don’t Get Caught’ a powerful story made all the more intriguing by its roots in a real crime that occurred in the Midwest. Jamie Stoudt loosely bases this story on these events, fictionalizing the narrative for added dramatic impact (Midwest Book Review).

[And then on to the winery with Elsa. Yup, it was time to move the action indoors . . . ]

[Elsa was delighted to see that the teenyboppers in the crowd . . . ]

[Knew to flick their “Bics” and sway to Hallelujah . . . ]

[As Elsa sang “Happy Birthday,” Ann discovered it was for the lady in red at the back table. Ann dropped by their table, out of nosiness, I suppose (homage to Townes Van Zandt), to get the poop. The whole table was from Thunder Bay (the border is open). Appreciative of her interest they sent her back to our table with a piece of birthday cheesecake . . . ]

Few women admit their age. Few men act theirs. ~ Anonymous

I believe in loyalty. When a woman reaches an age she likes, she should stick with it. ~ Eva Gabor

[So, Ruthie and Ann returned to the Thunder Bay table to thank them for the cheesecake . . . ]
