I'll stand on your side of the table and whet the cleavers, wombles.

Strummer > Jones is the way it is for me.

In the Lileks Memorial Minneapolis Beatdown category I propose Replacements vs. Husker Du.

Listen, you look out in your yard and see some ungrateful deer who eats, shits and leaves, I look out and see goats who eat, shit and yell their love and affection to me.

We take what we get.

...go to work to recover from the weekend.

Went off road deep into the National Forest and slept in the bed of the pickup with a dog and a boy. Did not get eaten by bear.

Saw some deer, the boy wants to come back on October to see how they're doing.

Don't read if you don't want to know...

Went and saw Solo, caught the scene of a a Wookie standing there holding a dudes removed arm in each hand, heard the POINK sound in my head used in the Lego Star Wars games for when you executed that character move, laughed for three days straight.

I like that movie for other reasons, too.

Reading Lileks today I'm going to realize I've become a person who knows where the slaughterhouse is. It's a subtle but emphatic shift of perspective.

Y'know, I feel really bad about failing to get an animal that will be killed and fooded named after wombat, so here we go: these will be eated in your honour, lady.

OK, sorry Wombles. I took two shots at getting an animal named after you and failed, first with the pig Burrito (yes, that where the kid landed) and now with the other kids boer goat, Taco.

Yep, the little monsters named their animals burrito and taco, which is a likely end for both of them, anyways.

Taco, far right, with Dan and Agent Two

I can see how that assumption could be made, although I did not myself, although I must ask you if that occurrence would be so terrible?

Nope, that gilt belongs to another 4H kid who doesn't have the home space to raise a pig. So it's going to go to fair, get shown and then get sold.

After which it will be forcibly bred to see if she makes pretty piglets. If not, THEN she gets murder/eaten.

The kid is coming over tonight to meet his pig, I'm going to tell him it's name is Wombles and see if I can make it stick.

I can name the black-pig-with-no-name-yet after her, if that helps?

The other pig is Tires, as in he's going to get big and round. The 4H boy will show him at the next fair, if he does really well (like champion well) he'll get sold, otherwise he goes into my freezer via Hottinger's.

Also, the dairy goat breeder gave us some lamb shoulder and loin chops to try. I rubbed them with a tiny bit of Lawry's seasoned salt and grilled them very rare-medium.

Friggin' delicious. I don't think I want to raise sheep/lambs because they have just slightly enough different needs from goats to be a PITA, but I sure would keep my eyes open for one to buy and eat. Maybe at the fair in October, buy one at the Junior auction and send it straight to the butcher.
