Here a Moo, There a Moo Everywhere a Moo Moo......

Ye-haw and howdy friends! Well, the cow finally made its way to the processor last week. (Please see last post for the beginning of the cow story) Fortunately, we split it with my parents and our half is 350 lbs. Yes, that's 3 HUNDRED and 50 POUNDS! We have to pick him up next Saturday. What a great way to spend a football Saturday, picking up 700lbs of cow from a slaughter house. Yumm-ee! Not to mention that is the same day as one of my best friends in the whole wide world's wedding day. Good thing its at night! I hope I have time to take a good shower before then. Anyway, we still have not gotten a freezer. Still trying to find one for under $600 mind you. So literally, Zac has to pour a concrete slab in our pretend basement to put the freezer full of 350lbs of cow on. (Side note: We call it the "pretend basement" b/c we live on the side of the biggest mountain in Moody and our crawl space has a full size door.) So in the frigid months of Dec-Feb. someone (Zac) will have to go outside to the back of the house and go in the pretend basement to get whatever beef we feel like consuming at that particular time. (Additional side note: This is why I NEED a new house!!) Thankfully, for said person (Zac), we (Zac) are putting in a nice terracotta sidewalk from the backdoor to the pretend basement so its a little nicer than just tromping through the yucky dirt. Real nice Clark, Real Nice.

Stay tuned folks, more to come!

I never knew a cow weighed so much...

I love the pretend basement. LOL! Jason and I looked at a house on Whites Chapel Parkway a few years ago that had a fullsize door on the crawlspace. You don't live in Whites Chapel do you? haha

Alicia said...

Ha! No we don't but it is actually better than a real crawlspace b/c you have store stuff in it. This house is so tiny we need all the space we can get!

You crack me up referring to the cow as "he." Why don't you name him? Then, every time Zac has to go get some out of the freezer, you could just say, "Hey Zac, will you got bring me a piece of Gus? Thanks, Honey!"

Alicia said...

LOL!! Gus it is!!
