Good Evening:

I understand we are now into fall, no longer summer. The time seems to go too fast. This includes the people at age 70 sure don’t seem as old anymore as when I was 40 yrs. old, I’m now 61. About 3 months ago one of my patients in the dental office told me a German expression new to me.

” Haufa Leben machen
Odor Fruh Sterben.”

With misspelling on the German, It mean live a lot of life with all the hard times, or die early. So I guess I am thankful as to how much I can still do and enjoy it. Especially singing the SchnitzelBank.

Last Saturday we harvested the Marquette graps, a little over 3 tons. We had a very good group again and all went well. Their group Photo below.

Also here is a link to show you how we handle the grapes in the 500 pound bins with ease. Jon is a lot improved on how he handles the bins that I’m fine to leave that job to him.

How could I almost forget, we were also in the vineyard harvesting with the Governor. The first video is Jon and Iza with the Governor and the second I am with Iza and the Governor. On the second one it is funny to watch how Iza is not bashful with the Governor.

Last week I showed you the cute little nest we found while harvesting. I asked, “What type of bird will hatch from the these eggs?” The best answer in my opinion wins a bottle of wine. I got some nice answers. Here are the best in my mind.
Wine Birds, Wine Pecker, Grape Pecker, and the winner is The Swallow, “because there are only two grapes…you might get a swallow of wine out them.” The winner is Mark Winkelman from Kingston, MN

Again:
Don’t forget you are invited for free samples of Little Iza during the month of September and September will gone, gone, gone.
