Life in the informal economy…

I’ve been going to D&L’s place repeatedly every day for a little over a month, taking care of horse stuff and giving their pellet stove a daily clean. Yesterday they were gone nearly all day at a doctor’s appointment in the big town about 50 miles away, and decided to pay me back…


So today after the Monday morning water run, which fell on Tuesday this week, I got busy packaging meat.


Tobie wanted me to know that he was there for me if I needed him. Or if I turned my back on the counter for even a moment, oh please please…


I like having some meat put up for the winter. It’s still a luxury item for me since I went so many years eating vegetarian or meat out of a can so I wouldn’t call it a need exactly. It’s just nice to have a mood (and temperature) raiser when winter gets gloomy and depressing.


So I’ve been working on a winter stash for some time in Ian’s freezer, and now I think it’s more than done. 🙂

    If that mutt gave me that look, I’d have to give him his own steak Whatta face!
    Also, nice meat stash. Meat, unlike money, doesn’t lose value to inflation.

    Lovely payback. I guess I don’t why you don’t occasionally drop one of those deer?

    DT has a point. And you don’t have to gut/skin/quarter/pack out a fish stick.

    Happy Thanksgiving Joel! I hope it was a good one.

To the stake with the heretic!
