Aloha Grapes Gang –
Hi, girls and boys. I guess I owe all of you an explanation for my absence from Grapes.
But first I would like to personally thank Kathy for helping me when we were on vacation. I hope that she was able to help you find that perfect bottle of wine. Thanks, Kathy.
And as to my absence, we had two unexpected episodes: First, my wife came down with food poisoning. Due to her condition, we had to extend our stay in Portugal. It was a true bummer to an otherwise wonderful vacation. Portugal is so vibrant and exciting. The people are so helpful with a cosmopolitan blend of ethnicities and acceptance of other people’s beliefs and values. The food, wine and scenery were equally as amazing. The other episode was that my elective shoulder surgery was cancelled when I was ordered to Queen’s ER. I was diagnosed with SVT (supraventricular tachycardia). SVT is characterized by a super fast heart rate. It was only through medication that my heart rate came back to normal.
I feel pretty good and look forward to seeing you when Grapes reopens next week Tuesday (May 7, 2019) at 12:00 noon.
Thank you for your continued patronage and understanding!
