5:00 Fridays

I've been whiny lately. I admit it. This election is freaking killing me. It's driving me to drink. Well, drink more than normal. Let's just say that McPain is causing me to drink more than Bird and Deal drive me to drink on any given day. And that says something. You don't think I pulled this 5:00 Fridays thing out of my ass, do you?

You loyal readers know that I love me some homonyms. So today's 5:00 Fridays post is about wine. My antidote to whine. One of my favorite T-shirts reads, "Whine? No. Wine? Yes." I wear the hell out of that baby.

So today's thirst quenching feast is a nod to Five Rivers Cabernet Sauvignon. It was a 40th birthday gift that Mac Daddy and I enjoy in our hours of peace and coupledom where we forget that we have children for a few hours every night. Wink. Wink. Nudge. Nudge. Wa wa wa, as Chachi would say! Don't get the wrong idea about "every night." That thar wine don't work miracles, folks.

Granted, I know nothing about wine. I'm no wine snoot or anything. I simply drink what I like. Well, a fine label design doesn't hurt.

Get yourself a proper red wine glass, and pour yourself a lovely cabernet. Perfect for the cool autumn nights and impending falling leaves crunching underfoot. Ah, I can't wait to bundle up under a blanket with our outdoor fireplace crackling under the stars. Glass of wine firmly planted in my grip.

The best thing about Five Rivers Wine? The winery supports women's cancer research and treatment. The company's mission is to build awareness and advocacy for women's cancer initiatives. I love a business with a good cause! And a reason to drink? Consider it your public service.

Drink up, my friends. Prosit!

I've seen the label but I haven't tried it (yet!)... mmm, red wine.

I love a good Cab!
(I hope you do a re-cap of the debate! It's killing me that I missed it tonight--was at a work thing!)
