Stretched out on a picnic blanket, the aroma of fresh cut grass fills my nose. Looking out over a sun drenched lake, watching the seaplanes land, I try to imagine what it would be like landing a plane on water, especially on a hot day like today. Boats of every shape and size vying for space become a maze. The noise of the police boats intercom breaks me from my thoughts. Apparently some teens need to watch their wake. Another seaplane fires up its engine as they prepare to take-off. In an effort to quench my thirst I reach for my bag of wine.
In a public park the camouflage of a brown paper bag goes a long way. If you happen to stumble across me during one of these glorious days of summer don't be fooled by my non-assuming company. Even sheathed in paper the superior quality of Wither Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shines bright. Refreshing, crisp and fresh the wine displays an herbal palate with excellent fruit finish. Clean and complex, this New Zealand wine is the perfect pairing for a relaxing afternoon and the waters edge. Weather enjoyed under a clear sky or not life is always Sunny with Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc.

For this any wine will do. No reason to discuss it, just drink it. It takes a lot of wine to numb the pain inflicted by the big lie. Of course, long ago we knew we'd been lied to. But finally it comes at that it is true,... they lied about Iraq.
Now that the lies are public, (finally) the only question remaining is what will happen next. I have 52 good ideas of what should happen next... Then of course we all remember what happen the last time a President lied to the public.
To that thought, I enjoy another drink.
