The Fort Ground Grill has been home to most of the Huckleberries Blogfests over the year. On Thursday evening (5 to 7 p.m.), we will have a Huckleberries Farewellfest, as this oldtimer shuffles off into retirement at age 67. The Cowles family, which has supported my family for 33 years, will provide an handy buyout to launch me into the future. All are welcome to come buy for some hugs, cake, thank yous, and mebbe some discussion about the future for old DFO.
