Default Guess what

We went to a Birthday Party last night at a friends house. I saw this item there and wondered what it was. They told me. Would like for you cruisemates to guess what it may be. Some of you may know and well others may not.

Wine opener and stand. Two handles on bottom hold the bottle. Top handle comes down and removes cork. I think you can reseal the bottle by using an opposite motion.

I actually prefer the one that unscrewes the cap off the Boone's Farm Tickle Pink.

Take care,
Mike

Mamagram machine?

Mike, Did you grow up in the 70's? I haven't heard of Boone's Farm in years.

Hey, Boone's Farm and Annie Greensprings followed by a Mad Dog 20/20 chaser. Takes me right back to high school football games and trying to stay warm circa 1973.

BTW, is the machine a fruit press?

Yeah, you're so right about that time period. Occasionally I watch the 70's show and sometimes it brings back memories but on every episode that I've seen the kids always go to the basement and get stoned. That just isn't a part of my high school memories. I mean, I knew about pot and it was around and available if you were one to partake but it wasn't the center of our activities. Now if those kids on that TV show were to pop open a bottle of Boones Farm Strawberry Hill and then go streaking...

I'd forgotten all about Boone's Farm. It was Strawberry Fields for us.

Rayb, I will venture a guess of your contraction being a press of some kind. Am I in the ballpark??

Mary Lou is now our official CM Sommelier.

She'll have to get a tastevin and put around her neck. It will look good with that new avatar.



I'll take a bottle of 2001 Niebaum Coppola Cabernet.

I wonder what the markup is? I can buy it here for about $35.

Take care,
Mike

Or the old commercial jingle:

Thunderbird: That's the name. It's the first great taste, since champagne.

Talk about false advertising.

or

What's the word? Thunderbird


Take care,
Mike

Mr. Mike....that will be $135 for that bottle of wine...of course, you will need to add 15% gratuity! .
Isn't it funny that I got it right and I don't drink? Maybe I did in another life.

Ray, I wish this had happened when you first posted this thread. I was in Dillard's earlier this past week and I saw the same opener that is in your picture!!

BigJohn:

We used to say that MD 20/20 went down like Kool Aid and then ripped the soles of your shoes off from the inside.

Gee: Just think what I could have done if I actually would have studied in college.

Take care,
