i picked up the phone (at work) about 10:30 am one day last week...and this "WOMAN" was singing some german song...."EIN PROSIT"

i'm thinking....WHO the heck is this - i'm about to hang-up...

then it all came TOGETHER for me. i'd dropped a bottle of this year's MEAD off at my MOM'S house that morn!!! OH - IT'S MOM!!!! (this feigned drunken ein prosit thing is SO out of character for her)

anyway - she had to "report" the SUCCESS of this year's batch. she'd apparently enjoyed a sip and played her organ with "very light fingers" - she said :)

so far - i'm "brewing the next batch in my head".... i'm thinking about what i want to put in the crock next. the AVAILABILITY of SUPPLIES will determine....i'd LIKE to make a MELOMEL (that's a fruit/honey wine)....mmmm....i'm thinking CHERRY MELOMEL.... i think it would be a pretty color!
