And now another addition to our theme of “All the reasons why you don’t want to go to the farm.”
First of all. Don’t name your food. That’s a good rule, any way you look at it. My experience is that people who butcher their own meat label the packages with the type of meat and not the name of the animal.
Second, the draw back to using brown butcher paper instead of plastic wraps or plastic containers to freeze meat is that it allows moisture transfer. This is going to result in less of a freezer shelf life for your frozen food. If “Daisy” is aged since last spring, that means summer and autumn have passed and “Daisy” is pretty old to be in a freezer wrapped in nothing but butcher paper. This might be a good meal for Elly’s family to enjoy the side dishes and not the meat.
“No, but I knew you’d love it.”
I notice that while T.J. says, “He does” in response, Brad is quiet on the subject matter. If he is wise he will stay quiet.
Just another example of why Saskatchewan is more advanced than Manitoba.
The Beverly Hillbillies were at the tail end of the hillbilly craze that led to comic strips like Li’l Abner, Joe Palooka, and Snuffy Smith.
I’ve had some experience with small town Manitoba hotels,most don’t have private facilities
No toilet? No shower? No running water? If that’s a small Manitoba hotel, then you may be right. You might as well sleep in your car if that’s what the hotels are like.
you have something against Dolph Ziggler and Xavier Woods?
Excellent point. Bring on the Bronies!!
Looks like the errors were fixed
Suddenly I feel a lot better about my complaints.
What would the point be of traveling to spend the holiday AT THE FARM if you DON’T spend any time AT THE FARM?
You would spend time at the farm during the day, ideally armed with bottled water so you could cook, but you would sleep at night at the motel.
Spoiler response: You are quite correct. The next and only time Elly and John go out to Winnipeg they stay with John’s parents.
A “motel” would likely be at least 20 miles away … probably much more
It would be worth it. I have done the “full house of people with no running water, no working toilet” before. It is no fun.
