After many months I was finally able to sit outside with a glass of wine (Australian Shiraz) and a cigar (Sancho Panza non plus from July 2002). I look forward to many more nights like this in the coming months. It doesn't get a whole lot better!
I can definitely relate... Why it's been in the 40's here several times in the past couple of months. I've actually had to wear a jacket outside to smoke on several occasions (LOL). I'm glad the rest of you northern folk are finally able to venture outside. Absolutely the best time of year! Seriously though, I have been reading in these forums for a couple of months and thought I would drop in... lots of good advice here. Thanks to all.
