    So that's what inspired the name. Thanks for sharing this. 🦃👍👊
    As for that young man from way back when, I'm positive he grew up into a fine outstanding gentleman. 😉🍻

    It’s awesome when it all comes together, congratulations on the quality you turn out. Agree with what David said about the skinny you man. 👊🏻

    @David lots of folks think I got it from Punxsutawney Phil’s home. Not the case. That’s called, “Gobbler’s Knob.” I had no idea who Punxsutawney Phil was when I coined the name for my future shop. ☺️

    That skinny kid grew into an absolute beast and one hell of a man. Proud to know your boss👊🥃

    Thanks, @John. I’ve certainly come a long way. ☺️

    @Mike you’re just saying that because it’s true. 🤪😂 Seriously, brother, I appreciate that and I appreciate you. It’s probably a good thing we are geographically-challenged. The bad guys wouldn’t stand a chance!

    We are all wondering where that skinny kid went. Thats a great addition to the shop door.

    @Tom some of us were never skinny…. Just not as plump as we are now, LOL

    Thanks, @Tom. Growing up where and when I fid continues to be the source of many cherished memories for me. This road sign is just one more. As an aside, the road gets its name because it was being made when gold was discovered in California.
