My New Knee

April 2nd, 2015 | No Comments

Here I am 64 years old and I just got a new knee. My knee has hurt since January of 1971 when I hurt it skiing at Crystal Mountain with The Lively Family. We were racing down Lucky Shot. No turns. Hooked a Mogul at warp factor 7.


I grew up with a family that was truly Northwest. We were Hunter/Gathers. From clam digging and crabbing at Grayland, Huckleberry picking at Mount Adams, Salmon fishing and a Bear Hunt on the Straits of Juan De Fuca, Camping at my Aunt and Uncles Cabin at Monte Cristo, Oysters at The Doseiwallups on the Canal to Trout Fishing in British Columbia; I enjoyed it all growing up. We ate really good with the things we got. I learned well at a young age to enjoy life. Preparing a fine meal and pairing the wine to go with it can be intimidating. It doesn't have to be. It is and should be fun. So come along listen to my stories, try out my original recipes, and enjoy the wines I suggest. You might Like it!
