Sunday Feb 2 afternoon

I am planning on going to Old Fed Sunday at lunchtime.
If the forecast holds it could be a fun day.
Warm for February

Haha I’ve got my longboard as well. The flow was more of an uphauling experiment.. I won’t be bringing it this time

Who's bringing the sausage biscuits? It's Ground Hog Day! Good

Re: Sunday Feb 2 afternoon

Apparently I lead a sheltered life unaware of the many things going on Sunday for which I care little Wink

https://www.wvgazettemail.com/life/rock-cave-grocer-gets-grinding-for-ground-hog-day/article_92697e66-3aa7-5bed-ada6-304ddd14da26.html

Quote:
Glen Hawkins speaks groundhog.

At least, that’s what his new hat and coffee cup proclaim.

“I just got these in the mail,” he said, showing off his new gear, a gift from a relative.

He’s standing in the back of his IGA grocery story in Rock Cave, and there’s a life-size stuffed groundhog staring in his direction from the top of a refrigerator case across the room. Then there are all the images of the cute little critters on his store website and weekly ads.

Clearly, he’s fascinated with them. So any confusion from visitors might be understandable.

But Hawkins said his famous “ground hog” sausage, and the huge annual “ground hog” sale timed to run through — you guessed it — Groundhog Day — is simply a play on words.

It’s “ground hog,” as in pig, not “groundhog.”

Get it? Apparently, many don’t.

“We had one guy two years ago that came up from Braxton County about two weeks after the sale was over, and he said ‘You got any more of that groundhog sausage?’ I said, ‘Yes, right there in the case, just like you bought on Groundhog Day, and he said, ‘Boy, I’m glad because this is the only store you can find it in.’”

The name even sparked the interest of television host Andrew Zimmern, host of the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods, who visited Hawkins in 2012.

“I took him groundhog hunting,” Hawkins said.

The experience was a bit of a throwback to Hawkins’ childhood.

“When I was growing up, any time we’d kill a groundhog my mother would fix it,” he said. “She’d boil it, roll it in flour and fry it like chicken.”

This year, the annual Ground “Hog” Sausage sale is scheduled to start today and run through Feb. 7. Hawkins has ordered 26,000 pounds of ground pork, a ton and a half more than last year, for the occasion.
“Last year, we sold 23,488 pounds and ran out at 10 [in the morning] on Saturday,” Hawkins said.

Dot forecast just kicked up for Sat and Sun. That's interesting... Of course, as soon as the janitor kicks the NWS server, it'll all go away. Shok

Re: Sunday Feb 2 afternoon

I hear the wind sirens calling. It looks like I'll have to try to get out of a Sunday event. NW 15-25 & warm - that hard to resist.

Context is everything. That phrase has an entirely different meaning in Oklahoma. Shok

Re: Sunday Feb 2 afternoon

With wind at 260º, I'm going to LLSC at ~2. Gate should open when you pull up to it or use 0152 Good

Re: Sunday Feb 2 afternoon

So today was pretty spectacular on Hartwell. Hope you all had an equally great, or greater, day on Lanier ~~~

This is from near the boat ramp at Green Pond Landing

Awesome! We have a policy of never measuring fun. Biggrin Anyway, how could we outdo "pretty spectacular"?

Thanks for sharing the stoke (and pic) with us.

Re: Sunday Feb 2 afternoon

could I get away with “spectacularly pretty” ? That’s what I really meant. Lol

Love the pic! That's a funny looking sail but it works.

I was totally foxed on how my front foot could be so forward but I guess I was jibing?

We live in the age of analytics. Measuring and quantifying fun, that is to say putting a number on it is important. After all, numbers are the only thing we can count on.
