Warning: Shameless Self-Promotion

I love wine writing assignments, and I'm living proof that you don't have to be an expert to get paid for tasting wine and scribbling opinions.

My article "North Texas Uncorked" appears in the August issue of Texas Highways. You can check out a much-abbreviated version here, along with a short interview and a selection of Skeeter Hagler's photos.

I'll thank you serious and educated wine drinkers for holding your laughter.

Good Morning Texas

The Land Report/Working Dogs segment on "Good Morning Texas" went very well, I thought. But who is that old man with the little yellow cur?

The WFAA folks were very gracious. Host Gary Cogill made quite a fuss over the dogs and even brought them a big bowl of water. Eric O'Keefe did a great job and put in a fine plug for Working Dogs of Texas, the book Wyman and I finished early this year. It should be out in fall 2009.

We had a great time, and thank goodness I didn't have to talk!
