No, but that's ok, it continues the tradition of missing your WW meetups so I guess I'm at least keeping that going.

Well then, what about the 19th?

We'd lose lost due to laziness about driving up from SD (where RJ is driving up from), but gain Cortot and his +1. Oh wait ...

Unfortunately it now looks like the 26th is not going to work for us We have a college orientation for my daughter that weekend...there is a small chance that they let us out early enough and it is UCI so we will be close.

The 19th is still good.

We have a daughter going to college excuse too, and like you, I think the 19th would be better for us. Put us on the maybe list.

Offshore storage as well?
The kids said SWMBO would now divorce me if she knew about some of it (offsite storage), but since they see some of it as their inheritance, I need not worry.
I think that was said with a .

Of course they would not rat you out! at your rate of purchase vs consumption they will inherit half the wine produced in California

But then again the blackmail opportunities will be endless!

How is the 19th? We've had some regrets for July 26th.

And why pyro on August 4th? I didn't know they celebrated my Mom's birthday!


You do realize we will be up in Napa/Sonoma on the 4th, right?

ahh, July, not June; that changes things. That's what I get trying to multitask when I should be working.

So the 26th would be the weekend before the tour? Too close for spousal approval I would think, without first asking. I'd have to check what may be happening around the 19th, so, still pending then.
