Am I Falling for Summer again?

Seriously. We've had the most gorgeous days in Cape Town lately - gorgeous summery days, that is, because with the toasty sunny rays and lovely wind-still evenings they can hardly qualify as Fall/Winter.

No one can blame any tourist then for popping in to enjoy the sunshine and wines in the relaxed atmosphere of the farm. Come to think of it, even in bad weather, stopping at my favourite wine estate for some winter warming wines is high on my list of favourite things to do, but this lady in Nevada took things too far:

MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - Even the Nevada woman accused of doing it is calling her behavior "mind-boggling." Brandi Smith is accused by authorities of stealing a bottle of wine from a store - while she was both topless and drunk. Smith faces charges of indecent exposure, felony drunken driving and burglary. Authorities say the 41-year-old woman was arrested May 10 after swiping a $20 bottle of wine - then driving off to a nearby fast-food restaurant, apparently looking for something she could wash down with the pilfered vino. A preliminary test indicated a blood-alcohol level of 0.14 - nearly twice the legal limit in Nevada.
