Why does this thread suddenly remind me of my military chemical warfare training? :)

Niffer started it.

DeanT - Posted - 06/17/2012:  16:38:41



Yeah... she was doing biology experiments at work... I wonder if anyone died

OM45GE - Posted - 06/17/2012:  16:41:52



Maybe we should check in the freezer!

DeanT - Posted - 06/17/2012:  16:48:36



You go in first, and let us know who you find

dat - Posted - 06/18/2012:  07:38:05



I wuz hungry 'till I came across 'Niffers post.    

DeanT - Posted - 06/18/2012:  07:44:57



I wish she would tell us where it was that all this happened?

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/18/2012:  08:57:21


It was a live in position at a horse breeding farm. The woman who owned it told me that she'd gone through periods in her life where food was hard to come by so she really couldn't abide waste.

But what happened as a result was that she would kind of go crazy if she saw something on sale. She'd buy lots of spaghetti or lots of pudding or whatever to "stock up" but then she never finished what was in her pantry and then there would be another sale and she's stock up on more stuff.

The turkey had been in her freezer and I think had just been frozen and thawed and refrozen and thawed so many times that it went bad. I don't know about the venison. It may have been frozen and rethawed multiple times. Or it may have been in the freezer for 15 years. Even frozen, there's a shelf life for everything.

After the spaghetti fiasco (I emptied a box into a big pot and discovered little worms floating in the water) I tossed most of the dried goods she had in the pantry and then I bought some to replace it which I kept in a sealed container in a different room.

About five months after I left she had a house fire and probably lost all the food in her pantry.

I'll bet after eating a fresh chicken fried deer backstrap, you'll like venison.    if that doesn't do it a bacon wrapped slice of tenderloin soaked in lea and perrins and a little garlic salt sprinkled on then grilled to a medium well would sure do it

OM45GE - Posted - 06/18/2012:  10:54:26



I just heard a news story that said we waste 40 % of the food we buy, mostly from buying too much and it going bad.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/18/2012:  10:59:16


A large part of why I tend to eat a lot of canned soups and such is because I hate buying food and having to toss it because ti goes bad. Canned food stays good for pretty long.

dat - Posted - 06/18/2012:  12:21:02



we can a lot of food,  our purple hull peas are keeping us busy now, maters are about to 

OM45GE - Posted - 06/18/2012:  16:30:59



Now I'm hungry again.

DeanT - Posted - 06/18/2012:  16:48:52



With three big dogs... we waste zero % of food we buy!

OM45GE - Posted - 06/18/2012:  16:50:05



There's stuff we eat that just doesn't agree with Toby.

DeanT - Posted - 06/18/2012:  18:34:33



We have one that won't eat peas. We can hide one pea in the middle of her supper, and she will scarf  her supper... and there's the pea in the bottom of the bowl.



 

OM45GE - Posted - 06/19/2012:  04:05:12



Most of the time, Toby "scoops" his kibble with his paw out the bowl onto the floor and eats one kibble at a time. My 84 year old mother in law cracks up when she sees him doing it. It is pretty funny to watch.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/19/2012:  06:22:33


I always kind of used to feel smug because I could give pills to cats no problems. And then I got a couple of cats who are hard to pill and I realized that I had just been lucky up to now with easy animals.

Luckily Mr. Quimby will eat anything so I can hide his pills in his food and he just chows down. But two of my cats require a huge towel and being locked in the bathroom and lots of bandaids.

DeanT - Posted - 06/19/2012:  06:54:03



Tie a string to the pill and pull it across the floor...

dat - Posted - 06/19/2012:  08:45:09



all I had to do with my lab to take a pill was throw it up in the air towards him, he would catch it and eat it.  I started with cheese crackers while we were hunting then he got to where he would catch anything you threw towards him.    I never threw him anything that wasn't edible though

DeanT - Posted - 06/19/2012:  10:13:13



If you throw something to my male greyhound, he immediately looks down at the floor waiting for something to land... Both my females will catch stuff you throw them.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/19/2012:  10:15:41


I'm always so fascinated by how dogs are different like that. With my shepherd, if I pointed at something she would look in the direction I was pointing. With my current dogs, they just look at my hand.

DeanT - Posted - 06/19/2012:  13:49:27



Mine too... they have eyes glued to hand... looking for cookie

dat - Posted - 06/19/2012:  15:28:12



or any morstle that could be accidentally dropped

DeanT - Posted - 06/19/2012:  15:48:05



Mine start doing their tricks if they see a cookie...without me saying anything

OM45GE - Posted - 06/19/2012:  16:20:35



I don't give Toby treats, but my wife does. As soon as she comes into the room he heads for the "cookie drawer" and starts begging.

DeanT - Posted - 06/19/2012:  19:48:37



dogs are the boss anyways...

OM45GE - Posted - 06/20/2012:  03:21:58



Isn't that the truth? They have us pretty well trained.

DeanT - Posted - 06/20/2012:  07:13:01



What they lack in life span, they make up for in household domination

dat - Posted - 06/20/2012:  07:23:56



probably a good thing they have a short lifespan, just think of how attached you would be to them if they lived 20 years or more

DeanT - Posted - 06/20/2012:  10:16:37



We had a cat live to 21!

dat - Posted - 06/20/2012:  10:31:28



that's when you throw a party,     Woooooo  Hooooooo, the cat is finally gone



 



 



I'm sorry, can you tell I don't really care for cats.

OM45GE - Posted - 06/20/2012:  15:14:45



I don't mind them, I just don't really see the point. Give me a good dog anytime.

DeanT - Posted - 06/20/2012:  16:01:44



Cats + Big dogs = endless entertainment

OM45GE - Posted - 06/20/2012:  16:05:42



We used to call cats dog exercisers.



 

DeanT - Posted - 06/20/2012:  16:52:28



We call them dog antagonizers 

OM45GE - Posted - 06/21/2012:  04:00:20



I have known some nice cats. One of my good friends had a MEAN SOB of a cat. It would hide under furniture and run out and swipe at you with its claws. It caught Toby on the nose once and now he's very cautious around any cat.



The other morning he and I were coming home from a walk and I saw what I thought was a huge grey cat in front of our next door neighbor's house. It came out from behind the railings and was a very pretty grey fox. We've got a family of red foxes in the neighborhood too.

dat - Posted - 06/21/2012:  06:08:41



fox are fun to watch,   we have some red fox around the house but I haven't seen any grey fox in a great long while

DeanT - Posted - 06/21/2012:  07:01:12



We have red foxes on the Air Force Base, and cyotes from time to time

dat - Posted - 06/21/2012:  08:53:33



I like to listen to the coyotes at night

DeanT - Posted - 06/21/2012:  10:33:36



All we get to hear is our neighbor's beagle

OM45GE - Posted - 06/21/2012:  10:36:00



Have you heard the mother foxes scream for their kits when they are little? It sounds like someone is getting murdered.

I've often thought it's a good thing that octopuses only live to be 3-4 years.  They're smart enough they could take over the world if they lived long enough to figure out how.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/21/2012:  10:40:24


I thought I saw a fox in a field the other day when I went to see my horse but yesterday I was out there again and saw the animal closer. I think it was actually a coyote.
