2017 Rendezvous

Jeff’s Corner

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

Here’s hoping everyone had a great Turkey Day yesterday and is enjoying a long, relaxing Thanksgiving weekend with friends and family. Our time together is fleeting, and should always be cherished.

Kathy and I spent a quiet day together that began with a lovely brunch of smoked salmon, bagels, cream cheese, capers, red onion and fresh fruit. This, by the way, paired wonderfully with a bottle of 2016 Heath Sparkling Adoration. The rest of the day was filled with memories, laughter, a few tears and the smell of pie baking and turkey roasting.

Jeff’s Corner Howdy, Howdy, Howdy It’s great to be back in my Corner again after some really good chill time in Santa Fe and Colorado visiting Kath’s sister Kerry and her hubby Bill. We’ve been close for forty years, and it’s always special when we get to share…

Happy Halloween!

Jeff’s Corner “Tis now the very witching time of night, When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out Contagion to this world.” These are some very scary lines from Hamlet that send chills up my spine every Halloween. I hope they spook you as well… On a more serious note, I haven’t heard from my dear friend Mr. Pumpkin (head of the Pumpkin Family) in a few years, and this is very disconcerting. I have no way to get in touch with him, and fear the worst. I read the other day the demand for pumpkin pie filling has increased tenfold over the last three years. Let’s hope for the best, however, and reminisce over better times in a post from exactly five years ago in Jeff’s Corner on October 31, 2014:

Jeff Update

Jeff’s Corner Hey, Hey, Hey Today I’d like to share a couple of personal updates with all you faithful followers of Jeff’s Corner. First, to quote our General Manager extraordinaire Julie Herbort, I’ve been “traded” to our Main Street location in downtown Fredericksburg for my colleague Chuck on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Details of the swap are murky, but rumors have it there were numerous draft picks involved and large sums of cash.
