SOUR GRAPES...

As many of you know, we have a grape arbor over our back patio...and we love it. And it has come time to harvest the grapes. Dad has done a great job at clipping them down. Sadly, he started the juicing process yesterday morning. So, Mom and I were "juicing" last night...and well...you'll see...
The steamer of doom. Mocking us...
You see - it steams the juice out of the grapes. Which means that the whole operation is very hot.
Tons of grapes - ready for the juicing...and scalding.
Mom - after I got my hand scalded...but really - she got scalded first.
Oh no...what happened here?
Dad - after Chanel and Debbie have washed their burned/scalded hands of the juicing. For the record - Dad burned his hand earlier in the day. We all have matching scars on our less dominant hand.
