A Toast To Remember

Copyright: janet-webb
Here’s to us sweetheart a toast to remember those years.  All I have left are the memories, the digital photos and the portrait that he made of you.  An act of intimacy that made you forsake our staid life together.

The suspicious Inspector visited again yesterday.  I offered him the Sangria I had made.  My version has red wine, fruit juices, soda water, fruit and sometimes brandy.  I leave it to chill overnight letting the flavours blend into the drink. Stored in a large pitcher and served over ice.  A discerning man he commented on its rich full-bodied taste.
