Cal the question, "What wine goes well with franks and beans", was not meant to be a legitmate question or a joke. Forty years ago I was very interested in French wines and winemaking and had gone so far as making my own wine at home. Johnny knew this and so whenever we met he used to tease me and ask "what wine...etc, etc. Typical Johnny Brennan humor. I thought if his daughter asked him this question it would jog his memory. I have not received any word from his daughter yet.
