You Can't Take It With You

I'm currently cataloguing the cellar of someone near and dear to me who has moved on to the next level. He left no list for his wife. She doesn't know what to drink or hold. She doesn't know what's worth some bucks and what's not. And worst of all, he didn't get to share these treasures with her. While he was truly a generous man who shared his cellar with any and all, he held back some great stuff for those special occasions. And then he was taken before his time.

Here's the point I'm working up to...that rainy day is here folks. Unless you plan to sell your wine or you consider it your kids' inheritance, drink some of it as soon as it's ready for heaven's sake. And how many of you have waited so long that your special bottle is now Over the Hill? I'm sure guilty of that one from not keeping my records up-to-date. While Dottie and John from the Wall Street Journal created "Open That Bottle Night" for the once a year sharing moment, I'm suggesting we all make it more often than that. As far as I'm concerned, every day above ground's a good one. Why not hoist a really good glass in honor of that?
