Have a happy Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day!

 Hope you're having a great Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day! We certainly did at the Orange County Archives (a.k.a. my day job). Per tradition, grizzled prospector Adam "Badger" England stopped by to chew the fat over a cup of Arbuckle's and a plate of beans.

With a little help from Susan, even Archie, the flat magnetic cat on our library cart, got into the act.
On his "Knott's In Print" website, Allen Palovik posted about Virgil "Blackie" Dillon and other grizzled prospectors that once haunted the streets of Ghost Town. Also, Stacey Reid provided us with a fine pen-in-ink illustration of a grizzled prospector on her blog. And about a gazillion other websites mentioned that today was TLAGPD without going into too much additional detail.

We appreciate all the support, but we should remember that ultimately TLAGPD isn't about what happens online. It's about talking like a grizzled prospector. If you haven't done so yet, you still have the rest of the evening to set things right.
