LOL too funny - I wonder how many people go speeding by that and have no clue what it means.

When someone does get the joke I suspect they'll be a set of skidmarks on that road!

There's a truly no-where town on Highway 89 in Utah named Hatch, for which I've always had a fondness for what should be obvious reasons. Somewhere, I have an image of the sign at the city limits, but this one will have to do for now, of Hatch Station

Hatch, NM is a quite unique place (love the chiles)

So many tiny tiny towns in the west, so spread out... I love it!

Having lived right on top of all of our neighbors my entire life,

this is heaven to me, well, if I could just throw in a beach and the Pacific Ocean, I'd be good!

The Ethel sign reminds me of a bad joke about Fred Mertz at the gas station.

Hey, Joey--

 

If you're still in central Calif, and if you happen to get up north around Napa, visit the Pride Mountain Winery, a small, high-quality operation located on the ridge of the hills btween Napa and Sonoma counties, just to the west of the CIA's campus near Napa.  It's fun as they bottle both Napa and Sonoma wines- the county line runs down the middle of the winery's parking lot and they have crushing tables mounted on wheels... they roll 'em over to one side and crush  Sonoma-raised grapes, and to the other side to crush  Napa grapes! This evidently meets the terroir requirements of whatever bureaucracy regulates these labelling matters.

 

Their wines are very nice, too, though more pricey than we usually spring for at our local TJ's. We brought back 4 or 5 bottles of their Viognier, which goes especially well with the Malpeque oysters we fancied at a nice restaurant in Walnut Creek, where we were visiting our daughter and her family. The Napa visit was a day trip, where we also had a great lunch at the CIA restaurant.  (About the only time the two of us have ever spent $100 for lunch.:eek:  Worth every penny, though- one of those memories for a lifetrime.) The very nice lady at the front desk at the CIA restaurant suggested PMW and called to intriduce us, after we asked for a suggestion.  We had previously hit a couple of the big industrial wineries, and wanted to see something more intimate. PM fit the bill nicely.  I don't think they distribute, but only sell direct from the winery.

 

Mike
