55Flash Fiction Friday

"My new shiraz is ready", she cooed, gazing out over her golden vineyards. She watched in delight as her personal vintner poured the burgundy nectar and holding it up to the sunlight, she swirled, then took her first sip.
Suddenly, her eyes grew wide in horror.
"This wine is pure SWILL! Off with your head!"

In this 55 I get to pretend that I am some snobby rich wine baroness in the Napa Valley. Actually, I came upon this poster while searching an appropriate background to pose this skirt in front of. I ended up using a beach scene, and my standby checkered background. You can see it over there in my shop sidebar if you wanna------->
By the way, I know nothing about wine, and I don't really care for it either, so this wine poster girl thing is a total fake out.
Hey that gives me an idea, I oughta do a poster for the agriculture that I really love about Northern California....he he....
I wanted to post this because Bryan really oughta make that trip out West to see the home of his favorite cartoonist, and go ice skating at Snoopys with the Ratburns! So there you have it, your very own wine country poster chickie fakeout 55!

Happy Friday to you and be sure to run over and tell the G~man that you played.

I think that truned out nice. You look like you belong. What a fun poster.

I am not much of a wine person either. If I drink it is usually beer or sometimes fru-fru drinks.

I will give the trip some serious thought. I really would love to see the town and with the added bonus of you three to show me around how could I go wrong.

By the way since you mentioned it on my blog, I have been to San Fran once for a convetion so I did not see much of it but it seemed like an interesting town. Of course I had to see the fisherman's worf and ride the cable car. I found this one strange little place. It was a Chinese hibatchi place where they gave you the meat, sticks, and various sauces, turned on the personal hibatchi at you table and you had to cook your own meal. Now that was different. Over all I was real impressed with all the oportunities there were entertainment wise in San Fran and was surprised that I really did not see a lot of things that surprised me. I thought the town was kind of wild. Then again I am sure I just missed the "interesting" places.

Um.. I think that's Hawaii's #1 cash crop too. and I don't mean grapes (snicker).

Erm... the vinter's name was "Vinay" was it?

I kept picturing that old prime-time soap "Falcon Crest" as I was reading this...

Love the skirt too gorgeous! You rock!

Off-topic, but I love your India countdown. I envy you all your trips.

Back on topic: Nice Snobby Wine Baroness fakeout thing, Susie! I also know nothing about wine and am not really a big fan. But I like the scene you created.
