Catnipoflife invites you to visit her sister site, Awakenings. Ah-h-h-h! The American classics – where would we be without them? Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet, all have their place among America’s iconic figures. From books to poetry to songs to movies and videos, each has its place among America’s favorites.

It was while I was visiting various blogsites that I was prompted to revisit the posting at Awakenings. Dicy McCullough’s post for the day was Braves’ Game: Favorite Thing #4. It brought back so many memories, especially of my late sister-in-law. She dearly loved the Braves. If a game was on and she had to go to the bathroom, the radio was right there with her! I have never known anyone as devoted as she. The sad part is she never did get to see a game live but she dutifully listened to their games.

With or without the baseball game, there is no better treat, at the table or on a picnic, than the all American hot dog. Whether grilled, broiled, boiled or fried, Chicago style, coney dog or your own home style, the feeling of biting into that ‘dog’ is all American!

Don’t know what to prepare for dinner tonight? Grab a hot dog! Give and receive a smile!

Added bit of Trivia: The hog dog is no longer just a ‘dog in a bun’. Numerous hot dog variations can be found state to state, across the nation, country to country and around the globe. Enjoy to their fullest!

What is your favorite ‘dog’?
