No Wine?? No Way!!!

I mentioned in my last post that I have been dealing with an ulcer issue. It's something I've had for about 20 years and seems to come and go whenever.  This time it has been hanging around for a little longer than usual, so tomorrow I get scoped to see what's going on. 
In the meantime, I have given up coffee and wine.  Well not entirely, I do cheat a little.  It seems red wine affects me more than white wine, so I have been laying off the reds, but have had a few nice white wines when out to eat.  Friday I enjoyed a few glasses of Paco & Lola Albarino and Sunday a very nice Pinot Gris from MacMurray Ranch.  That's been about it for the last week.
Coffee, though is another story.  Think I miss my morning coffee much more than my evening wine.
I did brew a pot twice during the week, just to cure the urge to kick the dogs. 
I also forgot that May is Riesling month in the Finger Lakes and I do have a few in the cooler that I was saving.  Shirley and I also have a planned tour of Cayuga Lake wineries later this month.  Just hope now that I won't have to spit what I'm tasting.  Hate to waste good wine.
Until then, I'll still cheat a bit, but I do hear the Cabernet Sauvignon calling or is that an old vine Zin.

Hope the scope goes well. No wine would be awful. Glad the whites are a little easier on you and you can enjoy some wine until the ulcer subsides.
