meaty issues


Mr. T got his very first gun Sunday. This is the year he gets to shoot deer (or turkeys or pheasants or ducks). He's Hunter Safety approved and so excited.

Speaking of meat, I'm off to grill 80 hamburger patties for the concessions stand at tonight's football game.

  3. I used to be very anti-hunting, but I've come around-- been educated :-) --to understand that the animals hunted have a far more humane life and death than the animals butchered for the grocery store. (Although I am still very anti trophy hunting, but somehow I don't imagine that's high on your list either.)

    I do love the idea of rites-of-passage for kids. I wish our society had more of these. I feel this way especially for girls, since I think that puberty and the beginning of menstruation should be about more than just keeping yourself clean. There should be a societal way of marking the passage from girl to woman-who-can-have-child.

  5. I miss the venison steaks and sausage that used to mark deer season. My mister's not a hunter, so such things are rarely on the menu around here.

    80 burgers... wow.

  7. "First gun."

    I love it. I just love how bas@ss it sounds...you don't even try to be all PC and say firearms & I love you.

    I want a gun, but I'm getting a tazer instead, when I have the disposable $.

    If he gets a pheasant, think of all the cool feathers you'll have for crafting and such! Gorgeous.

  8. You know I'm not much of one for hunting, but regardless, it is a very cool day when a youngster becomes responsible.

  9. Potential Thanksgiving dinner, from the efforts of your new hunter, maybe?

  10. I cannot even tell you how excited my city-boys would be to have their very own rifle.

  11. "Mr. T got his very first gun Sunday."

    I'm pretty sure that's a sentence I'll never write in any way connected to my children.

    Then again, I'm pretty sure you'll never write something along the lines of this: "Grace loves her new boots so much that she wears them all the time."

    I also agree with children having a right of passage, bet he is excited.

  13. way to go Mr. T! We'll be listening for the ringing sounds of your gunshots bringing down the 30 pointer that perhaps roams the back 40.

    Save us some venison sticks!

  16. Meat! Whenever I consider becoming vegetarian, I remember how much I like steak. It wouldn't last.

    Hunter Safety Approved: good for him!
