Sandy Eggo Stuff

Blog Bud Jeff Hollenbeck from Parrothead Jeff and Friends had this little bit of Sandy Eggo Stuff up on Facebook this AM.

It is worth posting on my Regular Day Off, methinks.

Found online and too good not to share

    Ah, memories of years ago. I can’t say I grew up there, but I certainly grew there. At least in North County, anyway.

    I really did love my time stationed there.

    This really made me smile. It’s great fun to watch any new TV news or weather person come in from another part of the country and mangle local place names.

You may fire when ready, Gridley
