    Oooh, I should have thought of that, especially with the similarity of muscadelle to muscat. Drat. Good job.

    Dark the stars and dark the moon
    Hush the night and the morning loon
    Tell the horses and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Dark the oceans, dark the sky
    Hush the whales and the ocean tide
    Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Ah, but it asks 'what kind of food' and these aren't grapes you eat, they are grapes you drink.

    At least muscadelle is a wine. Thanks lushy neighbor!

    You can/should totally eat wine grapes. Some of the best grapes I've ever had were these teeny-tiny champagne grapes I got at Pike Place market.

    That's....rather a lot of wine for one person, but if you're living in Florida I can see the drive to stay well-lubricated. Shiningbrow is from Cali, tho.

    He 80-something. And it's not just him, his 60-something wife helps kill those bottles.
