There’s a ton of seriousness these days.  The bad economy.  Falling home prices.  Contaminated eggs.  Terrorism.  High gas prices.

Once in awhile, you have to let your hair down and just have fun, if not for a couple of hours.  I had  to chuckle when I saw Gilian Handleman of Kendall Jackson sporting the latest in wine fashion yesterday at the KJ heirloom tomato festival.  Her sun blocking accoutrement brought a good deal of laughter to those attending the 14th annual event.

Monday?  Back to the real world.
