Gone but not Forgotten….and Slow down

Trying, as I often do, to hit two challenges with one image…

The WordPress Photo Challenge of Gone but not Forgotten is a currently bit too close for comfort if I think in human terms, so I am going the vinous route, and this nicely chimes in with Ailsa’s Travel Challenge of Slow. Job therefore done!

This image was taken some years ago after the Christmas Day festivities…some gorgeous 10 year old Burgundy with the bird, and a rather luscious 30 year old dessert sherry for the pud. Might be gone, but as you might have noticed, most certainly not forgotten. But where does slow come in, you ask? Well, I should have thought it self-evident that these things need to be savoured slowly 🙂

  4. Oh, yes, I can appreciate this. Like you my immediate thought on ‘gone but not forgotten’ was one of persons who had been close to me, but I like your interpretation much better! And claret with coke? You cannot be serious…?

  5. Beautifully edited, Sue, and perfect for the challenges.
