It's a New Year

I've made arrangements for the electronic payment of bills, which is one of the things I rather enjoy about these current times. We've also rounded up some pigs who elected to go for walkabout; with no difficulty I might add which seems to indicate they retain memory structures related to the last break-out.

*Piggie 1*: Ya know, it's nice out here.
*Piggie 2*: Yeah, it is.
*Piggie 3*: Yeah, but don't forget what happened to Piggie 10. When the food and water providers come out and open the pen back up, I'm going back in right away. Piggies inside the pen don't get shot and eaten.

Some light maintenance related to one hog water station done as well; swapping out a hose connection. I've two hog water stations to clean up now, holding in reserve for this coming winter and potential freeze damage. Yes, boys and girls, it does freeze in this part of North Central Baja Georgia. Not for very long, but it does freeze.

Thus concludes the major ranch work for the day. And I am not at hospital today, though hospital may not appreciate that, because something eaten in the past 24 hours encouraged the through-put of waste processing without pausing for water reclamation. Hmm, that does seem a rather delicate turn of phrase.

So I'm encouraging the intake of fluids, and taking things rather easy for a day. Either later on today (if the leash to the porcelain seat lengthens), or tomorrow after hospital I shall need to stop at places in town for some mats and at least one frame. I've got the prints, and need to get them ready for a fund-raiser auction which will take place next week at the marvelous location of Campbell's Resort in Lake Chelan, WA. I promised at least three prints for this.

And now, it's time for lunch. Soup. Yes.

lol - did any of the bad goats decide to go for a walk & therefore need to be eaten *looks hopeful*

BTW, how do you slaughter your goats. I have a very hopeful Pakistani friend who would love to purchase fresh goat meatfrom anyone who slaughters in a halal fashion.

Give me a call. We probably don't in that manner because we aren't familiar with it. However, if your friend knows how, it's doable. Or if they know someone who does, it's doable.

well, tis just slaughtering the goat by slitting its throat & bleeding it. He can't eat the beef on the market cos the cows are shot.

True halal slaughter is done by an imam with prayers said over it, but Saqib isn't that picky *grins*

Could be arranged, may need him to be there to do so. In truth, nearly all the goats are sold and transported elsewhere; very few have been slaughtered here. This could be another alternative, if necessary.

We've not yet had cows long enough to arrive at that dillema.

I will not presume to discuss slaughtering the other animals, other than to inquire if their presence would be a problem in itself? I do not wish to offend.

Late, I know. I've been out of it. madshutterbug's tummy is hopefully better now. (Mine is, but now I'm looking for brain cells.)

Slaughtering by throat cut & bleed is required for kosher meats too. I think. Ask marjai.
