The Good Butcher

A good butcher saves the bones for you. He keeps a running account that you pay off from time to time. He knows how thick you like your steaks. He saves things aside for when you come in. He is pleased that you are a fan of variety meats. A good honest butcher makes life that much better. He doesn't think it strange or unpleasant that you take a picture, in fact, he smiles a little bit.

AMEN! You got it, Lucy! My butcher will save bones, keep a tab, knows how thick, but has a fit when I ask for a calves' foot or a pigs foot or unpickled tripe. And don't even think free-range chickens or grass-fed beef. Oh, how i wish!
I do adore your stories -- check for new ones every morning. Sharon
