The Grapes of Labor Day

In the USA, this is Labor Day weekend. That means three days to enjoy the last bit of summer before going back to work or back to school. My wife and I planned a wonderful weekend that included Sunday brunch at The Bistro at Childress Vineyards in Lexington, North Carolina. You can see much of the vineyard at a previous Thursday Doors post from last June.

Here I will show you what the grapes looked like on June 27th. These are Viognier grapes that are planted next to the new Childress pavilion.



Now, let’s look at the grapes from yesterday.


Notice the netting protecting the grapes from the birds. These grapes are about to be harvested. In fact, half of the vines had already been picked before the weekend.


Here is a picture without the netting in front. Using my iPhone6 camera with the lens up against the netting made this shot easy to take:


I hope everyone enjoys this first full week in September. For us, fall is coming quickly, the leaves will be falling, and golfing in North Carolina will be in perfect weather.


5.0 out of 5 stars You Won’t Believe This is a NU Author…
on August 13, 2016
Fast-paced military science fiction, one of those you won’t want to put down. You simply will not believe that this a first novel for a NU/new author. Remember Andy Weir and “The Martian”? Well, add in the military technology and battles from the likes of David Weber, along with some of the “Ancient Aliens” theories and stories, and you’ll have a good idea of what this book is about.

Nu Book 1 – The Esss Advance is available via this link on ==> Amazon.
