Kelsey's friend Katie was over here today after school. We had been making big plans with Jacob's mom so he could come over and watch Matt cut up the dead deer. Katie overheard the plans and didn't want to go home. Her brother Josh came over to get Katie and she told him all about the deer in the basement, even though she had not seen it herself. Josh has been in my house once, but he totally beelined for the basement to see it. BOYS!! They all thought it was disgustingly cool. Katie and Josh left, but Jacob and his mom stayed to help.
Kelsey helped pack meat up also. But soon Kelsey and Jacob were having too much fun playing with each other to worry about meat anymore. Kendal was intrigued. She had her head in the chest cavity taking a good look and I tried to take a picture but I wasn't quick enough.
Matt slicing and dicing. There wasn't alot of meat on the deer. Matt had cut off the back straps and loins two nights ago, so there wasn't alot left to do tonight. I think we got a pretty good deal on this deer. Some kid from Farr West called Matt on Sunday and asked if he wanted a corn-fed deer he had shot on his way to the Sat night Priesthood Session. This kids family got a few depredation permits because their corn field got destroyed by a small herd of deer and he heard from his cousin who works with Matt that he wanted some meat this year if he couldn't get his own. Don't you love stories like that? Some body's uncle's cousins dog's flea's best friend??? Anyway, Matt picked the deer up Monday after work and brought it home to our basement. It was already gutted and skinned and the whole deal. NICE!!
We got some good meat from that deer and probably some bad public relations with all the kids' parents that Kelsey told there was a dead deer in our basement!
Lindsay?? Are you still there?? Amanda Lee?? Hadfield?? Anyone??
