Mom needed some more wine Grandma’s Special Juice so I headed out just after 5:00, which is rush hour even in little old Merced too. Now the local supermarket (S-1) sells her juice, but it is about $3-4 cheaper at the store (S-2) across town. So there I was, driving across town. It was hot, traffic was bad, and every time I tried to turn my head to the left I had a muscle spasm in my neck.

I had to take a detour because of a major accident at one of the major intersections in town. I never got close enough to see the wreckage, but I could see 2 fire trucks and a bunch of cop cars so I knew it was no fender bender. The detour would have been no biggie except for the 2oo drivers taking the detour in front of me, who all must have been from out of town because none of them knew where the hell they were going.

Finally, I reached the other store. I should have known that something was about to go wrong when during the busiest time of the day a parking space magically opened up right in front of the store. I just cruised on into the store and walked the .75 miles to the back of the store where they keep the boxed wine juice. Not only did they have her favorite juice in stock, but it was on sale! (Depending on where you go and if there is a sale the price ranges from $8.99 to $14.99.)

I was standing in line for the check-out when I realized that I didn’t have the ATM card. All I had was $4 cash on me. I had left the ATM card on my dresser. I put the wine juice back and headed home.

But wait! There’s more!

When I got home I walked back to my bedroom and over to the dresser but I didn’t see the ATM card. It took me about 30 seconds of frantic searching before I found it.

In my shirt pocket.

I bought Mom her juice at S-1 and told her that S-2 was out of stock.

    I am sure she appreciated the Mom’s Special Wine Juice. I frequently enjoy a glass of special wine juice with dinner or while reading. But not boxed … can’t do it no matter how many studies come out and say the box system prevents the oxidation that makes wine juice taste nasty faster.

      Have you tried this label? A guy who’s a real wine snob suggested this one to me because he and I use a fair amount of wine in cooking. He bought a box to make a dish, and when he tasted it, he was impressed enough to pour himself some to drink. I like to keep it around for when I don’t want to feel obligated to drink a whole bottle. https://www.blackboxwines.com/

        I read about black box somewhere and tried it a few years ago. My mother liked this line of special juices better than her old favorites in traditional corked bottles and it is easy peasy to get up a few flights of stairs. I keep the small black box special juices on hand for cooking. I really like the various reds as special juice or as the base for a quick glass of sangria in summer. Have had much better luck with black box juices not acquiring an off taste from being in the fridge.

    The latest Trump Star Destroyer has only $5,800 in his GoFundMe. GFY, Austin.

    After my court hearing today, the city is claiming that it cost them nearly $15,000 to repair the damages done to the star and its replacement. This is something that they very well may be coming after me for. In addition, there is the possibility of me facing 3 years in jail.

    I’m happy to stand up to our President but I personally feel that the law is going to come down hard on me. I appreciate everyone’s generosity up to this point but further support is very welcome.

    Thank you,
    Austin Clay

    What is it with rush hour traffic, anyway? It’s suddenly way worse over my way, too. Every day this week we’ve come across wrecks…… and first responders responding all over the roadways. Too many unlicensed drivers out there. Did the curtain go up or something at the funny farm?
