OK, I'm envious;)
Guess, they got tired of waiting for the Lake to not be -52 feet
The next gullywasher is just a couple months away. The lake tends to fill up real fast. BTW- Do you remember the slivo? ;)
As in Plums or Plum Brandy? I am more of a Pivo Drinker, but I remember it.
My friends there were located in the wine/tobacco region. We were there once when the first batches of wine came in...ugh, we were pouring wine in potted plants..They could sure drink us under the table.
I thought it was funny when scientists said "zinfandel" grapes originated in the region, as it was common knowledge there long before "scientists" declared it.
I can remember at the open markets that bees would be crawling all over the peaches, grapes, and plums, and the peaches smelled like heaven, not like at stores here.
I also remember the small arms fire..
"oh, it's probably a wedding,"
"Oh, it's just kids fooling around.",
And one big explosion that rattled everything..
"oh, the kids got carried away that time".
Found out that Kaboom was a mosque getting blown up.
Here is one of my friend’s family’s place in BiH. Fabulous food. Second best Semolina cakes ever. It’s really beautiful. In the Spring tiny wild snapdragons bloom along that river road. Great for bike riding.
