23 November, 2016. Bubba’s car is on the fritz so I had to pick him up from work yesterday. Due to the holiday, he only clocked half a day so it happened that we were heading home – and right past the turn off for The Local Pig – at 11:30. Well, that seemed like fate to me!
We stopped to shop at the meat market for what I consider to be the best smoked and brined chops I’ve ever had, and ate lunch from their food truck. Normally, the Pigwich has a long line of hungry, patient patrons but the crowd was small on this chilly November day. Bubba sat on one of the benches immersed in a video game of some sort while our sandwiches were being prepared and I used the opportunity to use him as the subject for a quick sketch.
