A to Z!

A.  AGE ~ 37  I can't really believe this is true and will probably continue to live in denial of the fact until I turn another number.

  1. I like van der Vino!
    FYI - Martini's, Erin, are not a food...although I think we could make a strong case as to the contrary - given enough Vodka!! :)

  2. I don't know - there's often "fruit" in Martini's right?? Any of my martini making skills I owe to you my dear friend!
