Wine Time… Temecula Here We Come!

Bright and early we headed to Temecula and today we will meet up with Robin and Bob!

Bob is in town for a few days having escaped his Las Vegas gig.  Poor guy plays drums for a band and several different singers.  What is worse, you might ask? He is playing at the Hooter’s Hotel and he has to stay five nights a week at the Hooter’s Hotel,  It’s a rough life.

Handsome and talented!

We had a load of fun in Temecula. We dined at Falkner’s Pinnacle Restaurant and then went to South Coast Winery, Europa, and Thornton! We also did a Maurice Carrie “fly-by” meaning we stopped and bought two cases of champagne and did no tasting there.  We laughed and giggled all afternoon.  We picked up Bob and Donna’s deliveries as they had to work! Work..  What an evil word!

Oh so true!

We met at Falkner first and then dined in the Pinnacle Restaurant!

We are gathered!

All smiles… Life is good!

The love of Paul’s life

Robin just brightens up the room with positive energy and a $1,000,000 smile!

Beauty is much more than skin deep!

Being the “DD”, designated driver, Paul took tiny sips of wine leaving the remaining for Sue.  She enjoyed the tasting!

While the sun was shining and it looked warm, when one left the heat of the car, it was cold!  The high was about 55 degrees and the wind was enough to make the air feel about 45 degrees!

OK… It was not that cold but it was cold!

We have been retired 3,632 days and are loving every second of it! ( 9 Years, 11 Months, and 11 Days ).  Another few days and it will be ten years!

We returned home but stopped at Kobe Steakhouse to make reservations for the 11th… Connor’s 21st birthday!  Teppan Room here we come!

Did You Know:  Teppanyaki (???? teppan-yaki?) is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food. The word teppanyaki is derived from teppan, which means iron plate, and yaki, which means grilled, broiled, or pan-fried. In Japan, teppanyaki refers to dishes cooked using an iron plate, including steak, shrimp, okonomiyaki, yakisoba, and monjayaki.

Modern teppanyaki grills are typically propane-heated flat surface grills and are widely used to cook food in front of guests at restaurants. Teppanyaki grills are commonly confused with the hibachi barbecue grill, which has a charcoal or gas flame and is made with an open grate design. With a solid griddle type cook surface, the teppanyaki is more suitable for smaller ingredients, such as rice, egg, and finely chopped vegetables.

So, while at Kobe, we did dinner and Paul stuffed himself with sushi. Sue had to settle for fried rice with egg for protein.  Of course saki’ and chardonnay accompanied dinner.

We got home about 9:00 PM and watched a Columbo before crashing “early”… 11:00 PM.  We were both tired as it had been a full day of being on the go!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
