Preservation skills.

“You girls ought to be very ashamed of yourselves, when I was your age I could dress and prepare anything your grandpa brought home blindfolded.”

“Thank God those days are far behind us.”

“Hallelujah  to that sis, the days of axe wielding Amazons are so in the past thanks to Paul the butcher and his crew.”

Well that was two years ago; now she lived in the middle of nowhere with her darling husband, serving as missionaries.

And when the locals present you with a gift you can be sure you will be wielding some sort of implement.

  1. Dear Chioma,

    Times have changed, haven’t they? Although for missionaries, I’m sure they encounter many ‘offerings.’ Well done. I do have one bit of crit. I think perhaps you mean ‘wielding’ rather than ‘yielding.’ I could be wrong of course. 😉

  2. I’ve never started from scratch with a bird, but my dad used to clean the ducks he shot during hunting season. I remember him using paraffin and a new paintbrush to take off the pin feathers. He did the rest outside. Good story and well done. 🙂 — Suzanne
