Now I've seen it all. That website has an "online Amish store"! Well, I suppose the Amish have to do their online shopping somewhere...

I had to purchase six bottles of their wine to get the dandelion wine I really wanted, so I ordered a variety of vintages and two bottles of dandelion wine. One has now been autographed by Ray and sits in a place or honor on my Bradbury collection book shelf and the other has long since passed (pissed) away. Who, but the Amish, would consider wines from elderberrys and other such that used to be quite common, but today cannot be found in even the most upscale of wine cellers (sellers) as remarkable enough to produce for sale.

P.S.: I am getting so senile that I have to edit this #$%^&* message three times to correct the misspellings. What about a built-in spell check for the board, ah technology to the rescue. It is not lack of knowing, but errors in key strokes that produce my sometimes unintellegible postings. But, I try. The alternative is to compose in Word, spell check and then copy and paste here. I am usually too spontaneous for that.

My Dandelion Wine comfortably nests in a Halloween Tree. Obsessive? Me?

Someone should make that Spring trip to Waukegan (Green Town) and gather up a dozen gallons of dandelions. What does it take to make a single bottle of the stuff? Have Ray take a single small glass of wine from the bottle and cork it up forever. Now there's a rare bottle. A single waft taken by the author of Dandelion Wine himself, fermented from the hills of Green Town no less. (Or, is this a form of something akin to idol worship going a wee bit to far?)

No, to be an obsessive you'd have to have a dinosaur in that tree as well.

Or perhaps discretely place a butterfly on a dinosaur birthday cake!

So it's legal to order wine online? Wasn't someone looking into getting some dandelion wine awhile ago and found it was illegal to send alcohol across state lines?

Wine sales across state lines is a complicated issue. Many states do not allow interstate online sales because they are trying to protect their state's wine industries. Other states have "blue laws" that prevent interstate wine sales. (Red states tend to have blue laws but that's off-topic.) Lastly, a few states require the signature of an adult, of drinking age, to sign for the delivery. So the delivery companies refuse to deliver to that state because they do not want to be responsible for policing those laws and fear of litigation.

O.K. So now that you have all tormented me with what has to be the Holy Grail of Bradburydom, How does one go about getting an autographed bottle of Dandelion Wine!
