To Glass Or Not To Glass, That Is The Question
I have recently been experimenting with the newly popular "stemless" wine glasses and find them a reasonably acceptable substitute. They do not break too easily in the cupboard after hitting a tope at too high a speed and they are not as quick to do a belly flop out of the cupboard when opening it after a day of driving. I drink red wine so the transfer of heat from my fingers to the wine is not at all bothersome to me, in fact it may be an advantage, I bought four of these stemless variety from Walmart when we got to Mexico and after seven weeks actually have three left. An acceptable casualty rate as they say in the army. Of our four long stemmed wine glasses, only one remains, a solitary orphan. The last man standing. Warm up the bugle for Taps.
