Oh, and I want the cows to be corn fed not grass fed.
 
Okay, okay, I'm a little picky.


How do you know? I just pick up a steak... unwrap it and cook it.

Actually... My wife unwraps it and cooks it.

What was(were) the name of the pig(s) that gave you that lesson?

Been there, done that.

I grew up in the country but not on a farm.  My dad owned a grain elevator and feed mill.

 

We had the usual assortment of cats and dogs but the only real "farm animals" we had was pigs.  Whenever there would be runts, Dad would sort them out and we kids had to hand-raise them.  It was  a pretty good deal -- Dad paid for everything and when they were sold, we got the money in our savings account.s

 

On the other hand, selling something you've raised by hand is never easy -- don't name your pig!!

i dream of having a pig.

Delmon Young... I still don't like the guy. The only ballplayer who consistently made me angry just looking at him.

Raccoons... their nipples are too small and I can't get good suction, jury is still out on the taste as a result

 

There is just something really wrong with that sentence.

I guess we did have chickens when I was pretty young -- kind of forgot that.

 

I always laugh when I see the HGTV programs, etc. about the people who want to have "urban chickens".

 

Been pecked enough, thank you.  And I'd just as soon never see another chicken hanging from a tree with its head chopped off -- geez my Mom and Grandma had stronger stomachs than me.

They snort, stink and aren't very soft and cuddly.

 

But go for it!

FWIW my mom grew up on a farm and she talked about her pet piglet Sunny Jim.(I don't think the Bottomley family had anything to do with that.)

Probably... The use of an ellipse after Raccoon.

Glunn and I talked awhile about it and he'd like a pig and some chickens and I'm pulling for him. I'm also curious what Mrs. Drysdale is going to say about it.

They talk about their Buffalo Wings but they ain't that great... I stopped going there and usually choose Applebeeville or Ground Roundville instead.

I think Hooterville was actually in the eastern part of Iowa....

 

at least that's what Sam Drucker told me.

Demon may be a boob but he's made over $20 million bucks playing baseball. Ain't it a great country?
