Wine delivery while away

When you go on vacation, you think you have taken care of everything. There is always one issue that arises.

We had gone away last week to Virginia. Just before we left I had ordered wine from Kunde Vineyards in Sonoma. I asked the person who was taking my order when the wine would be delivered. He assured me it would be delivered after I returned home.

Well..with technology today, lucky me..gets my email in my cell. Kunde emailed me to tell me the wine would be delivered on Thursday. Oh no!!! I emailed back and they said they couldn't stop the shipment. My son who was home wasn't old enough to sign for the wine. What to do...call a neighbor. Susan came through!!! My son who wasn't home at the time of delivery, left notes all over for UPS and they went across the street and dropped off 4 cases of wine. Thank you Susan!!

Moral of the story is make sure you make friends with your neighbors. You never know when you might need their assistance.

Oh and the wine...so far the Chardonnay is very good. Will keep you posted on the rest.
