DT Lyrics:






Subject: BS: Son of Where's Micca??!
From: ClaireBear
Date: 13 Jul 12 - 11:06 AM

Many old friends, I among them, are gathering next weekend to cook a splendid meal or two together -- something we used to do regularly when we all lived in Berkeley years ago. We called it "The Friday Night Supper Club," and it was always great food, typically great fun, and often great music.

Now we're spread out across the country, and we're all foodies of one sort or another, but there's not a wine expert among us. That's unthinkable in Sonoma County, where we're gathering. Who you gonna call? Micca, of course!

Micca arrives for his very first California visit on Tuesday! We'll spend Wednesday working our way up the coast to Sonoma County; Thursday and Friday in wineries getting, um, educated on the local vintages; and Saturday and Sunday cooking, eating and drinking the fruits of our labors (and quite likely making music, as well). And then another week or so recovering...

I'll let you know how it goes as we proceed.

Cheers,
Claire

Why do I suspect that I am not hearing the whole story about the deviled eggs?

I am starting him off with my homemade lasagne, SINS, because he speaks so fondly of the version your local joint provides. There's toast and marmalade planned for the next morning. Beyond that I cannot say at present.

Say, maybe it's appropriate to sing a song for Micca's arrival in California:
    Oh, if you ain't got the do re mi, friend, you ain't got the do re mi
    You better get back to beautiful Texas,
    Oklahoma, Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee
    California is a garden of Eden, a paradise to live in or see
    But believe it or not, you won't find it so hot
    If you ain't got the do re mi


Welcome to California, Micca. I'm looking forward to seeing you. I'll buy lunch.

How about "Where's Micca's dottir?" eh??? (Hey, he sailed the Seven Seas, it coulda happened,,,somewhere, some litte Miccaette is wondering about her sperm donor! Think about it.

Another definite NO on the feeding - unless you wish to visit your local hospital - is FISH as he is very allergic to it.

When we were ordering for Firecat's wedding reception we ordered a buffet for 40, 5 vegetarians and NO fish. Mind you Adam's allergic to it too :-)

Mary, I am NOT missing the Olympics, not one bit!!! I am not present in the same city wich is not the same thing at all! after an arduous day of wine tasting, we are relaxing for a while, anyway the story so far, Yesterday,a leisurely breakfast in the garden watching hummingbirds feeding while I ate toast and marmalade and drank tea, then a journey north long to coast road to SF and across the Golden Gate bridge to the Pelican inn that looks like it belongs in Devon, both inside and out to meet El Swanno for Lunch, which was very enjoyable,I now only have 'Spaw to meet and I will have met all the layabouts at large!!!, Dave is a real nice guy and we had a nice chat,it was pleasure to meet him and add him to my list of "Mudcatters met", we then pressed on to Sebastopol where we are now established, at friends,
We spent the day today winetasting at verious wineries including the famous Iron Horse Champagne producing House, and had lunch at the Korbel winerythen back for a nap, its a hard job but someone has to do it, and few would do it as well or enjoy it as much as I am doing on all your behalf, I will put a few pics up when I get a chance and add more to this account later

Hi,

So that's what the bridge looks like when you're on the main road. A different perspective from bicycling along the sides. Then again, when I was there last year, most of the time you couldn't see one end of the bridge from the other because of the fog. I didn't know any better than that pictures of flying in over the bridge were impossible. Look at it: You even have the shadows of the towers stretching
<does some mental flying and turning about>
in, over the waters of the bay!

Anyway, keep having fun,

We have started our feasting weekend. Jon, our host, started the day off with delightful scones, and then I made the formal breakfast: piles of bacon, and any number of blackberry-corn griddlecakes with blackberry syrup. Micca provided "proper tea" (PG Tips). We are, for the moment, replete. More later.

The Pelican is a short (USA short) way north of the Golden Gate bridge!! we are preparing for the Feast and people are playing music and singing! and the temp outside on the deck is about 95-100 degs, and the sky is an impossible shade of cerulan blue, last night we all sat out on the deck and watched the stars until it got too cold!! I am (thanks for asking) having a lovely time with Claires friends who are delightful, and tasting wines and food and music, and just kicking back! the way, in fact ,to spend a summer Saturday afternoon.

Sins...maybe on the sign.

Last time I was there (when my sister was still living in San Leandro), we stopped at The Pelican. There was a convocation of T-series MGs in the parking lot (and crowds of MG owners in the dining room). We'd planned on lunch, but gave it a miss because it was too crowded. Did get to compare notes with some MG owners and piss and moan about not owning one anymore and having to sell the MGs to bail my ex out of whatever financial hassle he was in at the time, etcet etcet.

I fantasize about heading to the Pelican Inn in a 1954 MG-TF...deep sigh...
