Skinny sandwich


In Greenville, Maine, The Black Frog has a skinny-dipping offer. If a customer skinny-dips in the local lake (pictured above), owner Leigh Turner gives them a free prime rib sandwich on a baguette roll. After a customer complaint, Turner briefly considered dropping the offer but did not. Turener says he gets two or three takers a week, and the skinny-dips usually happen at night. The customer drops their clothes on the dock behind the restaurant, runs off the dock and surfaces to a towel. The restaurant's very unique menu can be seen here.

I don't like prime rib enough to do it. Although, I honestly don't know what food I like enough to skinny-dip for it.

Shoot. I'd drop my pants and get wet for a side of frys. The sandwich offer is a bargain.

What kind of frys?

Ooops - your coment at the Campanula for the Cure KAL blog was accidentally deleted (a slip of the finger while trying to publish it). Please repost it and I will put it up.

In answert to your question: It depends on your knitting speed and experience. An obsessive socknitter can whip up a plain sock in an afternoon if (s)he has nothing else to do; lace and other complex patterns may take a little longer. And if you would like instruction or a copy of the pattern, please send me your email address (mine's in my blog profile).

Love your blog - have bookmarked it in my regulars.

Wow! I wish I could do that. How long did that sock take?

mezzodiva: I reposted it. Thanks for letting me know and thank you so much for answering my question. I once knit a scarf. After using one ball of yarn, I decided it was too short so I started in on a second ball of yarn. I was a bit obsessive and had to finish the whole second ball of yarn. Now I have a six-foot scarf I never wear. it's pretty though. Thanks again.

I might do it for lobster. Thanks for visiting my blog. I am enjoying getting to know yours better.

No problem. I like visiting interesting blogs. Lobster - Classy, and living in the water itself, somehow oddly appropriate for skinny dipping.
