Unlike most postcards, this one was quite large. And made of wood.
And not only is it a cool piece of Sconnie to add to the garage wall, it also spurned a conversation in the "Arts & Crafts" department where I spend 40+ glorious hours every week. See, many of you four readers know that I'm a picky eater. I'll eat poultry and fish, but no pork or beef. And I've been that picky for 20 years now.
Anyway, I was complaining to my coworkers that Allie and I have not been able to find turkey brats out in California. A dinner that we generally had about once a week in Wisconsin had been off the menu due to lack of availability.
Well, it turns out that Tip Top Meats in Carlsbad has 'em. And they're not just Turkey Store brand but made at the store. So we picked some up over last weekend. They were enormous and delicious.
So thank you Don for spurring the conversation. If you make it down to these parts the brats (and Leinies) are on me!
