Love it!!

And itโ€™s Rรถkka Kiosk, ร…land Islands, Finland.

The locals would skin me alive (and make me into a hotdog ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜‚) if I didnโ€™t point that out ๐Ÿ˜†

Iโ€™ll have to share with you the Finnish filet (a giant hotdog baked in the oven with cheese stuffed into slits made in the sides of it!) Itโ€™s fairly awful but very cheap. Made Finland the happy country it is today ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜„

There is a lovely gallery/gift shop down the street from where I live. In the window is an apron in a complete "hot dog" motif. The apron is black, and all the hot dogs are in bright colors! ๐ŸŒญ

"The F-mobile." It's 100x better coming out of Annette's mouth ๐Ÿ˜‚ I am still laughing at this

Thanks for explaining the meaning of "dog days of summer". I had no idea and my birthday falls squarely in the middle. My husband hunts and a local butcher makes venison hot dogs for us. Entertaining stuff, as always.

Such a fun post, Jolene! Itโ€™s a rare hot dog I donโ€™t like, especially when the dogs have a snappy bite. Jolene and Annette in an F-Mobile--sounds like a unbeatable comic duo to me! Stay cool and far away from steep cliffs though! ๐Ÿš— ๐ŸŒญ

When I was young I loved Weinermobile sightings but I've just never been a fan of hot dogs.

I mean, you have to admit that Weinermobile sounds more tasteful than EffMobile. Oh, wait, that's not what they're calling it?

Never mind.

We have been eating no nitrates hot dogs all summer with sauerkraut and mustard and itโ€™s been a DELIGHT. Thanks for always bringing us back to the most special parts of the simplest nourishment Joleneโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Also, I had no idea that was the origin of Dog Days! Today I learnt something. Thanks Jolene ๐Ÿ™‚

Always an enjoyable read, Jolene. Happy to see Lafayette Coney Island on the list. And thanks for the reminder about the Honey Deuce. Iโ€™ll be enjoying one this weekend while watching the tennis ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿน๐Ÿˆ

A very nice dose of joy was delivered by this tale. I love tennis both playing and watching. The US Open is destined now to my attempting to master the making of the honey deuce cocktail. Thanks for the inspiration.
