It's harvest time in wine country

We are surrounded by grape orchards here in SE WA. And wineries. There are two down the road from us. One of my PTA moms went back to school to become a wine-ologist (Viticulture/Enology) and is in charge of the wine section of the grocery store. My niece is leasing their land to the wineries. She took a class, in Spanish, to learn about the industry. The class is offered in Spanish because of all the migrant workers who came north , stayed and helped build the industry. Picking wine at Thanksgiving is always an exercise that The Engineer takes very seriously.
(Oven is clean! Took three hours at nuclear temperatures.)

A toast to a clean oven! Without the deadly fumes of cleaner.
