Dandy, Just Dandy

So, it's time for my Sunday check-in. Ah-choo! My allergies are really bothering me but, in the world of Carol, this is actually a good thing. Why? Because, well, it means we are celebrating something called "spring." Yes, you read that right, it's actually spring in Texas. No jumping from 23 to 107 without passing through a cool, comfortable 86 this year. Nope, not for us. We got spring! Yay spring! (Of course, now that I've said that, you know, you just know, it's going to be 106 tomorrow but hey, for now, we've got spring.)

The winery trip was great. The weather held-even though we could have used more clouds in the sky, there was a breeze and it wasn't overly hot (for a change.) The sun was a little high but a lot of the stuff was indoors so it might just work out ok.

On the way to the winery, we stopped to photograph an alpaca, who was determined to spit at me. He kept smacking his lips like he was getting ready to let loose any second. Ah yes, the glorious wonders of the animal kingdom-the alpaca is indeed some kind of "spitting" cousin of the camel and, yes, I do remember that old adage, "you're no dromedary until some dromedary spits at you." Ugh.

On the bright side, the winery was a much easier photographic subject. (It had to be, right? I mean, it didn't spit!) It was very industrial inside, which, I think made for some interesting shots.

Then again, after the fluffy winterized spitting camel and the seven variety wine tasting, who knows?

Until next hump...
