I tried to post this yeaterday but netnanny wouldn't let me on photo bucket unless i'm on mom's computer and she is at work today.

Remember my question about wine? My mom is at that truck stop as a waiter and has a lot of guys that are friends that are truck drivers who come through all the time and she has made friends with a lot of them over the years. Arby is a guy she has known and he comes through with a present like once a month at least. He even stay's over some times. This weekend he was driving the owner of his company's stuff from one house to his new house and he had a lot of wine in the truck with a lot of old stuff and furntiure for a wine room. Some people have more money than cents. Arby said he got to keep a couple cases which was really cool. So he gave them to us because mom likes wine. This was supposed to be real fancy French wine. Some was not too old but some was really old. Here are some pics.

This case was all the same kind from 1998. It said Blanc which is white but it was all red.
There was another case and more than a half of another case. It was of other different wines that were mixed up kinds, not all the same. When we got them home we took them out and I tried to clean them a little. We decided we were going to have a party with all of it.

there was a couple of these Peter V's wines I think were russian but they said France on the label.

There was a old one that was real old. Everyone says old wine is supposed to be the best but this was the first one we tried and it wasn't so grate. Kind of dirty and gritty. Smelled real cool though.

I had a whole glass with nothing but mom added soda water for her second try. I think it was just to old to be any good there was stuff in the bottom to.
There was a other one with only a small label. I broke it when i tried to get out the cork. I poured it into a coffee filter and saved it though. which also got all the gritty stuff out.

We put them in the fridge on the porch and Mom said "we are going to have a party!"
Sunday I asked on the forum about what kind of meat goes with red wine and all the stuff i saw on the website link i got said red meat for red wine most of the time. We have plenty of stakes and burgers butMom thought it would be real funny to have a fancy french wine party and serve the wine but serve it with tree rat (squirrel). She said its all that crappy wine is good for. If Arby found out I think he would be mad because he really made ashow about how good this stuff was suppose to be.
Jimmy and me went out Monday for like a half a hour and kicked butt out there.

I don't clean them. no thanks! Jimmy is the cleaner. He makes fun of me taking pictures of how I make my food so he made me take these of how he cleaned them.

We had the six guys from the park come over, and they had there girlfriends so it was not enough food. None of the girls wanted any so I had to thaw out the stakes anyway.
we fired up four of the squirrels. boo yah! I like to marinade them in worstershire sauce but we didnt have any. Here is the first squirrrel.

jimmy king of the squirrell.

tried out my new portible egg table. don't laugh! It's only for moving it easy. It's not for a permanant table.

We tried to drink the wine now that it was cold but it wasn't that grate. Mom tried to make it better with ice cubes she made from some of it but it took forever to freeze and all it did was make it colder.

We tried some from a few bottles of the newest wine but it wasn't like what we like either. Sutter home has those boxes and every single one of them is good and better than this stuff. We tried three of the real oldest, and they all had that same gunk at the bottom. We put them out on the steps. Good by. After the party Cindy took three bottles home but she will drink anything.
Thank fully we had beer and other wine of mom's regualr kind and we still had a grate party. The guys ate the squirrel with the first couple glasses of wine but then they all made me cook on the egg all the steaks and stuff from the freezer. We always have steaks in the freezer now that we have a egg. The hole house got trashed. Jimmy stayed over and past out in Mom's room again she always acts mad but she always lets him and laughs about it. They were laughing about something all night. It was good he was there so he could help us clean. Pics of the next day.

that is not even are dog!

I know who made these and it wasn't me. It was jimmy in the corner with Jess clinking glasses every time they took a sip. They both like Jimmy and so Cindy got kind of mad and pushed Jess and she spilled it.

bigger stain. I don't know who did that one.

i'm telling you we got trashed. but not on the fancy wine. we went back to drinking beer. there was some white wine in there too we thought would be better than the red stuff maybe but it was real sweet and disgusting. The name was yquem on the label. Mom kept saying Yuckem!
before we even bothered to try to clean up mom started laughing anddecided to make the yard look good. it is finally spring here and she wants to plant herbs. she took the empty bottles and all the rest of the full ones and decided to have a funeral for them. She went an got the herbs from lowes. If you want any of the wine, it's still here come an get it.
