GI JOE seemed to be pleased with my wine selection……”GILDED LILY” from King Ferry Winery in the Finger Lakes.

Trader Joe’s RED, WHITE and BLUE tortilla chips…….yum yum…..and so patroitic……. [even though the company, ALDI, is German…….owned by the 9th richest man in the world].  I added $2.69 to his bank account.
