    Flash 55 ~ Take 55

    The harshness of nature had taken it's toll on Melanie.
    She had to drag gallon pails through deep snow
    to the livestock. They counted on her.

    She knew that because of tough times, she would be asked to make
    a difficult decision.

    Which one of her "friends" would she chose to feed to her family?

    My husband told me a similar story about raising Bessie and than his dad laughing when he told them they were "eating Bessie". Hey, what can I tell you, his dad was a jerk and still is a jerk!

    I'm glad I grew up in the city!!
