Birthday Boy.


Back in February of 2016 I reported that Kimbo had bought cases of wine for each of his two sons, from the years of their births. The wines were laid down, and were not to be opened until their 18th birthdays.

Harv was given a case of Chateau Grandis, an Haut-M├ędoc wine from 2006.

Here he is looking very happy with his father's choice.


Now that Suave-Harv' has reached his 18th, it was time to broach the first of the bottles.

So, down to imaginary cellar they went, brushed away the imaginary cobwebs, then brought-up the dust covered bottles. The wooden case was prized open, and here he is (disguised) with the first of many, that was consumed with many an 'Oooh' and 'Aaah'.

Sadly I was here in France, so unable to enjoy the occasion with him.


Happy Birthday dear boy!

  6. A lovely far-seeing thing to do. Of course, Kimbo did not get to drink a drop.

    1. He's still a bit undecided about what path he'll take in life, but I'm sure he'll do well, whatever he chooses.
