OK, this is a little off the beaten track for Mina’s blog, but we’re hosting an event at Barrel Oak Winery in Delaplane, Virginia on Sunday, August 15 from 1-5 p.m. Please come and bring the kids and fur kids because BOW is a very kid- and dog-friendly place. Mina loved visiting BOW, loved it. We started going there about two weeks after they opened and she’d have run of the place. It was a lot busier during her last visit on her 13th birthday, October 10, 2009, but she managed to last for about three hours before laying down under the table.

So come out and have some wine and support a cause that will help the people and wildlife of the oil-damaged Gulf Coast!
