^^Hey Cecil, are you shooting a Model 12?

Good guess Scott, but no. If the box of shells had not ben in the way, you could see there is no ejection port on the right side of the receiver. It's a 1950s vintage Ithaca Model 37 featherweight. Bottom ejection makes it great for us southpaws, similar to the Browning BPS. It's my favorite field gun because it's very light and it was really cheap (about $100, years and years ago), but it kicks like a mule.

^Yeah, the '37 has always sort of unfairly lived in the Model 12's shadow. I'm a lefty, too, and have always been interested in '37s but have enough doubles to make one unnecessary. Cool shotgun you've got.

Thanks, I've got one in 20 guage also, a little newer vintage 1960s I think). For a lefty, it's the best design going in a pump. I envy the man who has too many doubles, of which I have none. I agonized over a used Citori last Christmas. Mrs. C47 even had it on layaway but I could not pull the trigger, so to speak. I would agonize over the possibility of dropping it in the muddy Rio Grande. I'll stick with the old standby for now/

I can't believe that I have never checked out this thread! Great stuff everyone. I mentioned on the mothership that my father was a poor dresser, but he was obsessed with travelling. This thread brought back some really good memories!

Long weekend in the bay area.
It was rainy and wet the whole time. Mrs. C's sis jinxed us by bragging about how unseasonably nice the weather has been all year. Anyway, it's better than working!
Headed up to wine country on Thursday, after hitting In 'n Out by the Oakland airport, going to the Cheese Board in Berkeley, and dropping Mrs. C's son and grandson in Berkeley with their aunt.
Visited Grgich, Raymond, Chandon (at all of which we are members), Schramsberg (where we are now members), Hall & Mumm. Ate at Ad Hoc, Cindy's Backdoor, Bouchon Bakery, and Farmstead. Headed back to Berkeley and went to dinner at Hawker Fare in Oakland. Breakfast at Bette's Oceanview Diner, lunch at Gioia Pizza, and back to ABQ on Sunday. Had green chile when we got back, going through withdrawals after 4 days without!

View from Hall Winery in St Helena

Wine caves at Schramsberg. Those are Champagne bottles stacked nose to tail, floor to ceiling. Some places they are 65 rows deep within 1 mile of caves!
Image

Best dish of the trip - pork belly and brussels sprout tart with a slow cooked egg over homemade hot sauce vinaigrette and a side salad at Farmstead in St. Helena. Wow this was good!
Image

Champagne at Mumm. We still like Chandon and Schramsberg way better.

Thanks for the lively report, Cecil. Despite the rain, it sounds as though you had a great time!

It's the least I could do, really.
