Once every couple of years, we need to replenish the freezer with pork. Living in the country, we don't generally run to the market for meats....we grow our own! Last March, John and our friend JP picked up a new batch of Bacon Seeds - 7 of them.
They all fit in a cage in the back of John's mule at the time. We keep them at JP's place - he has the setup for the pigs. Time passed and we come to the end of October and the Bacon Seeds have grown to their full capacity. Time for Freezer Camp!
All loaded up and ready to head out. Two of those are ours. Named Pua and Pigg! We have already received the fresh meat ant it's resting in the freezer in the garage. We pick up the smoked portion this Friday. John is planning on driving out to Utah with Pua meat the beginning of December. Our son and his family gladly admit that they are spoiled for home-grown meat! No preservatives, no hormones, just grass and non-additive grains. This is one of the perks of living in the country!
John and I recently spent part of a day at Silver Dollar City. We get season tickets each year and usually only go to the Festival of Craftsmen and the Holiday Festival. Going twice pays for the cost of season tickets, for sure.
We love this festival!
Everyone knows I spend a lot of time on the computer...mostly on Facebook. I see a ton of memes that tickle me. Here are a couple that I wanted to share with you.
I kinda like this one.....might be something I can include in each day.
Winter seems to be coming on rapidly here in the Ozarks...yesterday's temps were in the high 60's. Today we will be lucky to see 32. We are getting rain, sleet, icy rain, and snow. Not a great Veteran's Day, for sure! The wind is wicked and, combined with the moisture, makes for some tricky driving. Thankfully, I don't need to drive anywhere anymore! Prayers for Mr. Wonderful - he had to work today! Here's a chuckle:
Makes sense to me!
Today being Veteran's Day here in the U.S., I want to wish all of our veterans a Most Happy Veteran's Day. Thank you for your service to this still great country. Thank you for helping to keep our families safe. Thank you for your sacrifice. And thank you to your families for their sacrifices...they had to keep the home fires burning while you made sure that homeland was safe!
Thanks for stopping by!
