2nd Annual Sangria Social

With Jane here in Saratoga and Teresa & Eva in Albany visiting Alex & Cati from Spain, ’twas the season for sangria. Last Saturday evening the stars and the moon were in alignment and Sangria Social Dos came to life. It had been almost exactly a year since the original Sangria Social 2006 was born, so it seems the event is officially an annual one.

My wife’s accordion, bestowed upon her by my father-in-law, who has a band of his own, was last spotted at our 2nd Annual Sangria Social.) […]
