Wine and Cheese Party – Movie Day

(Avon Park, FL) Hi  72 Lo 57 -- On Friday we went to the wine and cheese party at the clubhouse. It's the first thing I sign up for every year. We have a great time and get to meet so many people we wouldn’t see otherwise.  (Click on the pictures to enlarge them.)

This pretty napkin tree was made by the lady sitting next to us at the table.

The way the wine and cheese party works is they have long tables with separate areas for each state represented by the attendees. You sit in your home state area and bring some wine from your state. Each couple shares duty sitting at the table to discuss their wine as people walk by and sample it. Jim stayed with ours since he’s not a wine drinker. He's hoping for a Bourbon party some day.  :)

Along with every kind of wine you can imagine, there were dozens of cheese trays and other finger foods.

The room was packed.

One of my favorites was gummy bears soaked in white lightning moonshine. They’re very good.

The party ran from 3 to 5pm, but I didn't last the entire two hours. I can’t hold my liquor like I use to. :)

Saturday we went to the movies with Rosemary and Lee to see Taken 3, starring Liam Neeson. We've seen the first two and enjoyed them. We also enjoyed this one, but you really have to check your brain at the door and just have fun with the over-the-top action.


After the movie we went to our favorite buffet, The Hibachi Grill. Tonight was the seafood buffet, which was excellent.

See you in a few days.

I heard that in the next "Taken" movie that Liam Neeson is not going to be armed with a firearm because he says this country has too many guns and the movie glorifies them (he actually said it much worse). It is great that a Hollywood actor would have such strong convictions. Oh, wait. That is not what he is going to do, he is going to continue making violent films and be a hypocrite. Written in a sarcastic mood! I can't wait till the next "Taken" installment.

I don't drink but I love firearms. You can have the wine and bourbon, just leave my guns alone!!!

We want to see Taken 3 even with Liam's comments. Agree with Jim and Judy but if we stopped seeing movies made by loonies or hypocrites we'd never see another movie.

I have had to use a weapon many times in the defense of myself and others. I bet you if these libs kids were being threatened by a crazy killer they would pray for a firearm
I have always referred to it as my LIFE insurance police.
