Yesterday two long boxes showed up in the mail addresses to me. They were wine boxes.
I thought to myself, "wtf, I didn't order any wine?"
Then I saw they were from Australia, and was even more perplexed, until I realized they were from a very good friend of ours that moved across the pond a year and a half ago.
He is probably the only person I know who would ship booze to the other side of the world!
BUT, it gets better. Two and a half years ago, this friend and I went to see AC/DC when they played in town, both of us being big fans.
Well, these weren't just any Aussie wines he sent me, they were AC/DC brand wine!!
I miss that crazy goof terribly, and wow did this make me bust a hearty belly laugh out, like old times :-)
He sent me a bottle of You Shook Me All Night Long Moscato, and Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon - what a riot! I wish someone had been home just to snap a shot of the look on my face when I opened these both up. I mean, seriously - AC/DC and nice wine wasn't my first thought of a match made in heaven.
Secondly, who sends wine in the (international) mail? LOL
Thirdly - check out those labels - how awesome are they!?
What a hoot!
But I can tell you tomorrow night, when the clock strikes 12, and I put 2011 behind me, I will not only be toasting to a new year, but to great friends.
Friends who's presence is felt as strongly from other corners of the world, as they would standing right next to you.
I can't think of a better way to end the year :-)
Cheers to you, and yours.
I wish a Happy and Healthy New Year to each and every one of you!
I'll leave you with one of my favorites :
