|“Mishap at the Picnic” by Harry Ekman c. 1950s|
This past Saturday night hubby and myself decided to have a dinner picnic under the stars. This was not a random decision. It so happens that a local winery, Peirano Estate in Acampo Ca. was having a showing of the 1959/1960 classic version of Little Shop of Horrors on the grounds of their winery and tasting room. An evening under the stars, among the grape vines, sipping fine wine , eating our yummy picnic meal and snacking on fresh popped butter pop corn. What could be better ?

|Our supper, a version of Chicken and Waffles, made with a extra thin wheat pancake, not quite crepe, not as thick as a pancake, a marscapone and maple spread and crunchy chicken fillet.|
|The grounds at Peirano Estate are breath taking|
|Lord Blood Rah of Nerve Wrackin Theater fame was our host for the movie.|
|Of course I had to have a photo taken with the Lord of ceremonies|

Extra Extra ..... Review .....
In each package you get a clear bonnit trimmed out in black and then a cute print on the other and they come packaged two to a little carry pouch. I now have both a leopard as well as the one with the stars on it, seen above. They are well constructed, fit perfectly over a variety of hair styles...and as I found out they not only protect your hair from rain, but wind as well....of course not meant for really hot and sunny days...but this one served in a pinch and did not smoosh my hair as a normal scarf or hat would do. They are reasonably priced, even with the conversion difference and shipping costs from Canada. You can count it as Ruby's Musings Approved.
