Groundhog Day

Today is Groundhog Day which I think is wonderful, I like ground hog.....very tasty. I also wish we had a day for ground beef, ground turkey and ground chicken.

On another note, I saw Stephen today, he is fit to be tied. He hopes he can go home soon but will need in home care till he is out of the woods. He is starting to get his mean streak back so maybe I will have to stop being nice to him.

BTW Stephen, While you are sucking up the A/C in the hospital just remember it could be worse, you could be here.

    1. My favorite way to eat ground hog is in the form of sausage.
      As for the temp, try carrying around over 70lbs of 'battle rattle', ammo, water and armor in that heat....with long sleeves. It's like working in a super heated attic while breathing dust.

  2. I prefer ground bear in stew or chili. Moose is good, too, but I'd rather have a steak.

  4. I used to work at a mill as a teenager where the old guys on the laoding dock would go out in the field next to the mill and whack a whistlepig in the head with a hunk of pipe. They'd clean it, skin it, and have it in a crock pot with a gallon of pork n' beans thirty minutes later. By lunch they were digging in. Greasiest stuff I ever ate...
