Let me tell you this is one great contest. Some of you may know I won this contest in 2009. My short short story was featured on their 2007 vintage. Here's my label.
Later I found out that my wine (I do call it that even though I only wrote the back label) was served at the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Awards at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Buzz Aldrin was one of the presenters. Buzz Aldrin may have read my label. Does that make me one degree from Buzz Aldrin? Or 1.5?
Caldwell Vineyard is an excellent vineyard. The people who run this contest are great. I have friends who have visited the vineyard in Napa Valley and they gave them the grand tour because they knew me. Some day I plan to get out there and see the operation for myself.
BUT FIRST! I am planning to be the first two time winner of the contest. So why am I telling you this? I have no idea. Guess I'm just a nice guy. Go ahead and enter. Just be warned, this puppy is mine. (So much for Mr. Nice Guy.)
The contest runs from today until May 7. My entry goes in today.
And don't forget to click on one of my sponsors. Every penny helps me to a new computer, one I don't have to turn on and then leave the room for an hour while it warms up. Right, violins would help with this sob story. Except the violin I picture is neon red, electric, and screaming the blues.
