Good Morning Oliver, I feel like this is my Sunday!It was so much fun volunteering at the Festival of the Grape and very rewarding this year.
I was looking forward to the challenge of the “Sabrage of the Oliver Bubbly” shot.
(That is wacking the cork off with a sword) This is a challenging shot to say the least, however, I have done it many times in my career.
Secretly I have always wanted to try it. MLA Linda Larsen needed a stand in due to her schedule. I bounce up and down and she picked me!First I gave my camera to Don Lawlor and I can see I was more surprise than anyone! The cork came off with the first good wack!So much fun! I admit I watched the pros very carefully over the years!That kitchen knife looks a little scary in my hands!A little posing going on!May I take a bow, one thing off the bucket list!
Love Oliver, more photos as I edit them.
I can’t give Rhoda, our fearless leader, 1000 photos with raindrops on them.
