Odd Things You Learn About Your Neighbors
Tonight Pastor Curtis and I had a school board meeting to attend. While waiting for the meeting to begin, the conversation wandered into the area of food and hunting. Pastor Curtis, you see, is an avid hunter. I am not. If I had to deal with meat in anything but packaged form, I am certain I'd be a vegetarian. In fact, just TALKING to Pastor Curtis is enough to send me running for my copy of Laurel's Kitchen! Tonight Pastor Curtis had some of "Doris." Yes, "Doris." He NAMES the poor beast that he shoots before he stores it away in the freezer as an aid to remembering WHEN the slaughter took place, I believe. So the Curtis family feasted tonight on Doris. I ate hamburger and was rather thankful that I didn't know by name the beast from which it came!
