JSS-- Just Some Stuff
1. FOXHOLE RIBS-- This past Wednesday, we went to the Foxhole restaurant in McHenry, Illinois. It is located in the basement of a building dating to the 1890s that was once a hotel on the Fox River. A lot of history and a hard-to-beat rib special. For $12 you get a full slab, baked potato, garlic bread, cole slaw and choice of soup or salad. We still have two meals of left overs to go.
2. CHRISTMAS STUFF-- Hoping to have some temps in the 40s this weekend and will be able to get the mini Christmas light trees off the frozen ground. A lot of stuff is frozen.
3. FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS-- We've been enjoying the NFL football playoffs this month and are happy it will be the Carolina Panthers (N.C. is my home state, plus there is the ex-Bear factor with Coach Rivera and receiver Olson. We also like Denver because who isn't a Peyton Manning fan.
4. "GROUNDHOG DAY" FESTIVAL-- Tomorrow, I'll be going to Woodstock, Illinois, for the annual Groundhog Days Festival. This is where the movie "Groundhog Day" was mostly filmed. There will be a free showing of the movie, a chili cookoff, walk to movie sites and a seminar, all held at places featured in the movie.
