Friday Flash 55.......



Eiswein!!
Blood of Dionysus.
While your clustered brethren has long since been gathered, pressed, vatted, and swilled... You are still clinging to the vine. Standing your lonely vigil. Waiting to wither. Waiting to freeze!!
But from that frosty raison explodes AMBROSIA!!
Honey Of The Gods!
The ultimate gift from Nature...
To it's very undeserving offspring.
.
.
Hi everybody, this is the bottle of Heaven that my daughter brought me from Germany. It cost 45 Euro's, however much that is.
If you or anyone you know has posted a Friday Flash 55, please come tell the G-Man, I will visit, read, comment, enjoy, then BOOK!!!!
Please have a Great Week-End.
Peace..!!!

You are making me thirst G. Shame it's a little early for a drink here. Love this!

I don't know how much 45 Euros is, either, but if it tasted like ambrosia, it was worth any price. Cheers!:)

I have a bottle of ice wine (not really a wine, more of a syrup) that I've been wanting to open. I strongly consider opening it every time Sophia has one of *those* teething nights (I still nurse her - think soothing syrup for mom and baby *grin*)

Kaknu said...

oh and my 55 will be up in 10, 9, 8,...

Mona said...

Ambrosia... a name that was too...

45 Euro is a lot of money

Wow... 45 Euros is up to about $67 US these days. The dollar has slipped a lot in the last four years. *frump*

Love your tribute, G-diddy. I'm up, too, as you've already discovered. Sorry. I was napping when your 55 finally went up. Doh.

Hi everybody...
What a wonderful array of 55's this week. Thank you all for playing, and I'll catch all the late posters when I get home from Border's tonight....Ciao

barman said...

Hard to believe morning on Friday is a late poster but ... yes I finally posted. I think I could use a drink but tell you what, I am not sure I could tell the difference between bones farm or the good stuff so we will just go with some dash board wine.

Have a great weekend. Only one more week left...

Oh, that is a great wine, G-man. I was amazed at the great offerings they had while I lived there. Sorry about my prolonged absence, I hope to be back on track with my 55s again real soon. :D
