Truth in advertising...

As you might have guessed, this is a hot dog stand. It is one of our favorite summer places to stop. It is immaculately clean and the food is great. It is also extremely hot in that little trailer for the lone cook when the weather is tropical. It doesn't have a/c and is a converted travel trailer.That is a real taxi there with two mannequins in the back seat. There are picnic tables nearby and it is on a busy state highway outside of Middletown, CT.

The hot dogs are those sizzling, popping type and they serve them with crunchy, crunchy home-made style sauerkraut.

It was only a moment when cars started pouring in and would have ruined this photo for me. I have been trying to get a photo without cars in it for seven summers!

Summer is winding down for school and college kids, but it doesn't really end until the third week in September. So, we are looking at the best weather, wonderful produce from farm stands, and cooler days and nights followed by three months of autumn which is glorious here. This is a great time of the year and this weekend was the kick off!

Enjoy the waning days of summer and enjoy your day!
