Diet Update - Day 37

In a rather revolting development, the stray yellow tom who took up undesired residence underneath my mobile home decided to use the wooden tub I plant my grape tomatoes in as his kitty litter. This is the unnamed yellow I call Brett's, as he said he picked him up because he seemed friendly. (His dad lives on the 40 just north of mine, but both are elsewhere a lot. The cat obviously thinks he's mine. Did I mention that both father and son have large dogs who LOVE chasing cats?

When the hungrier finally hit me, I did not want to go into town just for a dozen eggs, so I bought a dozen small brown eggs from my neighbors across the road to the south, the ones who fly a Canadian flag when they're there. The pullets were free ranging over the entire acre, mostly in garden. I'm still trying to decide if the high price for a small egg tastes any different.

If I have to think that hard about it, I guess I need to pay more attention to my shopping list. (Of course, I kept a dozen eggs for so long that three eggs cracked and seemed bad, so I dumped them outside. The cats didn't think anything was wrong with them, but once they've given their seal of approval, it would definitely be bloody finger time to retrieve one.
