According to Websters, hobknob means: “to spend time with someone (such as a famous or wealthy person) in a friendly way”. By extension, the newly birthed word “cobknob” means “to spend time with someone (such as a famous or wealthy person) in a friendly way working on a cob building project ”
So while the wealthy and famous part is up for debate, the phrase “such as” lends credibility to designation of April Fool’s day 2017 as an Official Harts Mill Day of Cobknobbing, at least for Greg and Randy. There was a lesser amount of cobknobbing with Paul as he delivered a load of straw bales. Greg and Randy heaved and hoed a few hundred pieces of urbanite onto their new place on the planet, where it is envisioned they may now rest for a few centuries. Oh if this lesson in staying rooted could spread more widely.
Hopefully the time lapse below captures the results, if not the cobknobbing spirit…..(click here for a fast version).
On a related note, plans are taking shape for the long awaited series of cobknobbing days starting this coming weekend. Any and all are welcome to join in the fun, (and be part of a cob mob). RSVP to Randy is much appreciated. More info can be found here.
