Today was a travel day as we moved from Illinois into Iowa.
You probably would not have guessed this to be the case, but there is a winery in Iowa, near Cedar Rapids called Cedar Ridge Winery and Distillery. We stopped and enjoyed a great lunch, and some interesting wines. I ended up buying two bottles of Apple Wine, just because, and Perry purchased a single malt corn bourbon that he deemed pretty darn good.
Here we are with our wine goggles on:
Oh, a funny story from today. When we were in Nashville we had gone to Perry’s Steakhouse and had a great dinner. But despite my communications with social media at the company (and they are a big restaurant chain and things fall through the cracks), we never heard from the local restaurant’s managers and nobody knew the story of our trip when we arrived. Today I got a call from another person in social media for the company who explained that somehow the date of our reservation was not translated correctly, and they had a party another night with the last name Perry. And they gave them the royal treatment! So here’s to you, Perry family who got a special night at a great restaurant. I hope it was everything we dreamed of!
Now here is something fun, I hope: When we were on our plane flight to Orlando we amused ourselves by making Perry puns. What is a Perry pun, you might ask? A-pear-antly you have not thought about it. Take a word that contains per, or peer, or pare, or par, and substitute pear in it. So I have a huge list of words that contain that root.
Now for the fun part, take at least twenty of these words and create a somewhat sensible paragraph and submit it here in the comments. Perry and I will pick our three favorites and when we get home will mail or deliver to you a cap or a t-shirt with our logo on it. I have size S- 2XL t-shirts and caps that fit most.
|Ex Perr iment|
|Perr a phrase|
|Perr don me|
|Perr for the course|
|Perr ing knife|
|Perry shoot or chute|

Thanks, and tomorrow I will be posting again about more travels and less silliness.
