I found this poster in the window of an old store, one closed for many years. However, the poster was new. What really caught my attention is the fact ‘Grits’ has a festival.
I live in the south now, and my family was actually from the south originally. So I don’t want to make any jokes about Grits. I have to live here, Grits are not to be trifled with.
As a yankee we don’t think too highly of them. In fairness there is good reason.
Grits are nothing more than coarse ground corn, boiled. They are also the most ‘southern’ of all things. Everybody eats Grits. Heck, even I eat them if you add Shrimp and a Tasso sauce (ham).
Anyway, I saw the poster, my yankee upbringing kicked in, I took a photograph. The idea seemed pretty funny.
It turns out this festival is actually a big deal. Search on-line for it.
A ‘World Grits Festival’…who knew.
