Well, I’m in Houston – taking 47 Friends wines to the great state of Texas! I’ve been meeting with distributors here and hope to be able to make an announcement in the next several weeks about who’ll be representing my wines in Texas.
I could tell it was going to be a good trip as soon as I landed at Houston’s Hobby airport at – you guessed it – gate 47. The great karma just kept flowing. I got to my rental car and it was in – again, you guessed it – spot 47!
I met some fantastic folks here. What they say about the friendly folks of Texas is sure true! I stayed at the Lovett Inn (www.lovettinn.com) in the Montrose/Museum district. If you’re ever in Houston, I encourage you to stay there. Dan, the owner, some of his friends, and some fellow guests joined me in enjoying the wine left over from sampling the distributors earlier in the day. What a hoot (with three O’s, as my new friend Todd would say – www.toddpartridge.com).
Now I’m on my way home and – you guessed it – another 47 sighting! I’m flying Southwest, and here’s my boarding pass! Good karma continues. Must be the positive effects of having my 47 Friends around.
