Jack became our mascot for our road trip to wine country. And, as luck would have it, he also really likes wine so he fit right in like a long-lost friend.
|Sometimes Jack got to ride up front with Lisa and Dan and help navigate|
|Other times he just hung out|
Next we stopped for lunch at Wine o'Clock and enjoyed some pizza and some Bunnell Family wines.
Our next stop was Fidelitas Wines located on the slopes of Red Mountain. This was Jack's favorite stop of the day. We tasted a flight of Cabernet's that he fell in love with. He did have to get a little assistance from Eric to pose for his photo, however.
Our last stop of the day was at Kiona Vineyards. At first, Jack was a little nervous because we saw the bed of what appeared to be a large dog. But we soon learned that the dog was not there so Jack got comfy in his bed!
|I don't care about no dog!|
|Jack enjoyed the Dry Reisling...we bought 4 bottles!|

|Happy Jack! After the tasting!|
|Yay for Charles Smith!|
We eventually, begrudgingly, had to leave Charles Smith. But I'm happy to report that we found Rotie Cellars and more delicious wine! Jack started feeling really good at this point and got a little more playful.
|Here he is trying to check out the lovely lady's cleavage!|
|Here he found a bannister to run along like a tree branch...such a squirrel!|

|Jack's smile got bigger and bigger (okay, I may have helped it along with a Sharpie)|

|Cheese and crackers and his new DMB t-shirt!|
|Jack located this special squirrel table and made himself at home|
|He was promptly served a glass of wine|
|And Jack was in heaven...feeling like he really fit in here at Cave B|
We ended the day drinking wine by the pond with old and new friends, listening to music and enjoying a perfect day.
|Enjoying Phil's music, the beautiful surroundings, and some wine|
"Life is complicated, stupid, confusing, and annoying. Why couldn't I have been a squirrel?"
“To A Squirrel At Kyle-Na-No
Come play with me;
Why should you run
Through the shaking tree
As though I'd a gun
To strike you dead?
When all I would do
Is to scratch your head
And let you go.”
