WWKIP Day - What Fun!
Two groups, SNB-NEGA and SNB-ATL, joined forces around 12pm, and here are some pictures for you:
These are the SNB-NEGA knitters that showed up first:
Steve (Tammy's husband), Tammy, Jen, Ashley and me:
The famous Pixie and moi. Yup - I know celebrities :-)
Food, food, food, and some knitting!
Ashley, Pixie, Jacquie, Steve, Tammy and Jen:
And now there are more - some members from SNB-ATL found us: Jen and Jill in the back chatting, Ashley, Michelle, Travis (Katey's boyfriend), Jana (well, her curls), Jacquie, Katey, Karen, Tammy and Leon:
We also had a bunch of non-human visitors...
Meet E.T. for Extra Tiny - an adorable little cat. His foster mom, Jana, brought him along - of course, in a beautiful felted bag:
Here you can see E.T. sleeping blissfully on some Debbie Bliss yarn. Being tiny doesn't keep one from having GREAT taste ;-).
And here is E.T. again - I can't just get over how cute this little fellow is - with famous Steve in the back, working on a beautiful Entrelac shawl from Scarf Style. After browsing through Steve's copy of the book, I decided I needed one on my book shelf, too. Off I go to amazon.com... Again... All these enablers in my life...
OK y'all, that is what you missed on Saturday. Too bad. Some of the SNB-NEGA knitters decided that some of our future meetings should be outdoors. We just have to find the perfect spot with a cool breeze, nice shade and maybe even good seating. On the other hand, we can always bring some chairs and tables. Nothing can stop a knitter from getting comfortable and knit in public, right? Except maybe Atlanta summer heat. ;-(
And now for something completely gross - just to get you in the mood for lunch and show you what some of these crazy Southerners around me think about eating "healthy".
Hubby - who is a big fan of News of the Weird - emailed me a story about America's "Stroke Belt" aka the Southern States of the US. Do you know what a Hamdog or a Luther Burger is? Me neither, until I read the story. SO - just to completely ruin your appetite - here is a Hamdog:
Not the guy - what's on the plate... The dish, a specialty of Mulligan's Tavern, a suburban bar in Decatur, GA, is a hot dog wrapped with a half-pound beef patty, then deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions, and served on a hoagie bun. Oh yeah, it's also topped with a fried egg and two fistfuls of fries. You can read more about this delicacy here.
And then - the Luther Burger, also a specialty of the aforementioned fine-dining establishment:
This is a bacon-cheeseburger served on a split and delicately grilled Krispy Kreme doughnut.
Excuse me, I think I need to run to the bathroom now...... I know different people have different tastes, but this is just soooooooooooo abnormal! Anyway - maybe I should take the next Germans who visit to Mulligan's to show them some REAL GOOD Southern food and then right after I'll take them to an appointment with a heart surgeon...
Alright - on this note, be well and eat healthy. Have a great week!
