Have you ever heard that some people resemble their pets? We have a mini dachshund — short legs, a little overweight and that’s exactly how Vince and I are — short legs and a little overweight. Ah heck .. Vince and I are both more overweight than is Speck.
Jace and Sally raise cows. Several years ago Sally and I were talking about their cows and I just really felt bad about those cows because . . well, they aren’t milk cows! They’re steak cows and hamburger cows and brisket cows! Sally kept laughing at me! It wasn’t that I couldn’t eat beef but I really didn’t like to think about where it came from. Sally and Jace sent me this T-shirt.
Then tonight I was over on Jace’s blog and all of a sudden, I noticed the resemblance in those eyes! Does anyone else see the resemblance to the eyes in the T-shirt and the eyes in his picture?
And about my apprehension of eating beef — in October we bought a fresh cow from the local meat market, they did all the dirty work and it ended up in my freezer. The first bite and I remembered what beef tasted like when I was a kid and my grandparents butchered their own beef. The gravy this meat makes is better than Dr. Pepper! I swear I could drink the gravy with a straw! I hope I never go back to buying beef in the grocery store.
So, thanks Jace and Sally and all you cattle farmers out there for raising that melt in my mouth kinda beef that I hadn’t tasted in years!
