Found our newest favorite wine! Road House Red from Buck Creek Winery in Indiana has won the taste test and proven to be our favorite. We had been to Buck Creek Winery about a year or two ago and had even taken a tour of the winery. We knew we liked their wine, but we hadn’t found one that totally captured us. That is until we returned a couple of weeks ago.
The Road House Red variety is a sweet concord grape wine with an 11% ABV. It is sweet, smooth and very tasty. It is good with cheese and fruit. We also liked it with chocolate. In fact, we liked it with everything we tried it with.
We spent a lot time trying different wines from wineries while we had been stuck with the coronavirus. Not that we had it, we were very fortunate, but then we didn’t hardly leave our house for almost a year now.
We also like the Road House White and have ordered some more of it too. Did I mention it can be ordered online and mailed to you? They have an extensive wine list for your buying pleasure.
But, Road House Red has become our favorite. You can check out the other varieties they offer at the Buck Creek Winery website. The winery is only 30 minutes from downtown Indianapolis off of Interstate 74.
We traveled to the 450 North Brewing Co. outside of Columbus, Indiana yesterday afternoon. It was our first time to this brewery and we weren’t sure what to order. In fact, we were too “coronavirus scared” to go into the establishment. So, our dear son went in and brought out a beer list for us. We got a growler of the Dunkel, which is advertised as a German style lager, dark, smooth and malty. At 5% ABV we loved it and will for sure be getting more. We are wanting to try some of their other brews as they have a large selection to choose from.
We are anxiously waiting to get our coronavirus vaccines so we can start visiting places again. 450 North Brewing is going to be one of our first go to places, as the food menu looks very good.
They are part of Simmons Winery, so we guessed at a bottle of wine we wanted to try. We tried the Fuzzy Peach table wine and we were a little disappointed with our pick, as it wasn’t as sweet as we like. But, our fault as we didn’t go inside to do a wine tasting. Next time we will go in and try some of the sweeter wines.
Looking forward to going back to this winery and brewery. I’m getting hungry just thinking of their menu!

This is the second puzzle we put together. This 1000 piece puzzle was a lot harder than the first thousand piece one we assembled a few weeks ago. It was really a challenge, and did provide a fun task to perform while still needing to stay safe from the virus.
We are hoping that we’ll be able to get the first of two COVID-19 vaccines within the next few weeks. Hopefully the distribution and start of the dispensing of the vaccines will be a signal of the beginning of the end of this damned pandemic.
Continue your vigilance and stay safe! Happy New Year!
The recent full moon came up on a night with thin cloud cover. This image was the result from the iPhone, with editing to a Black and White presentation.
We trust you are making the best of things and staying safe and healthy!
This is a very cute and fuzzy kitten I saw on my walk today. Two of its littermates took off and hid when they saw me. This little guy just hopped up on a step and turned to look at me. Then he slowly sauntered off like he owned the world.
The pandemic is still going strong. Don’t let your guard down friends!
This Jack O Lantern probably graced someone’s front porch last weekend for Halloween. Even though you can’t see the face, the top removal is evidence of some decorative artwork. How or why this pumpkin found its way into the center of this shallow river is a mystery.
No more campaign ads, now we just have to get through the counting and lawsuits. Be safe! COVID’s getting worse just about everywhere.
No politics here. There’s enough of that #*@% everywhere else. Just for you here’s a couple of sunset shots from Roadtirement’s sky.
Make sure you vote tomorrow if you have not done so yet.
One of the routes I use for my daily walks follows along a small river. Here is another photo I took today. Sky was overcast with intermittent misty rain. A cool temp of 55 degrees coupled with a steady 15 mph breeze made for a somewhat invigorating hike.
A true sign of fall can be seen in yards and forested areas. A carpet of leaves has developed in our yard as can be seen in the image. You can barely see the fence and mulched bed circling the maple tree.
Continue to follow recommended safety precautions. Avoid the virus.
