    Maybe it will give him a better incentive to do a good and timely job!

    Maybe! We shall see. He's kind of an idiot so far. I don't even care, I just want it done quickly.

    I agree! But hopefully an idiot that can work fast! Is this the same idiot who wasn't planning on starting until Monday?

    Huh I tried to cancel changing my pic, apparently it did it anyway lol.

    He's planning on pouring Monday, he says. It should not take him this long. DH and his friend could do this much faster! Oh well. FIL is paying the difference so if he wants to throw money away, whatever.

    We haven't done bacon in a while, I have a ton waiting! We don't do ham, we aren't fans. And we don't use curing salt.

    Love the video!

    I have prospective bacon in the freezer that I need to get out and cure also. I should have time over the winter break.

    Hopefully FIL won't have to pay for extra time....we need this done like yesterday!

    Dude is working. Showed up with a worker today that he didn't know well. DH recognized him. From the sex offender registry (we check it fairly frequently). He kicked him off our property, and informed the boss why. He agreed and apologized, he had been recommended as a laborer and he had no idea. The guy left, looped around and drove by to see if DH was still there. He just went home to feed animals, and asked his friend to drive by later and make sure he's not back, if he comes back the police will pay him a visit for trespassing. Or we'll feed him to the pigs. Not sure which. Sheesh! But at least work is happening.

    Hoping to do some butchering soon. Can't wait to have the house settled, extra critters in the freezer, look at seed catalogs and restart schooling with DD1. I'm so glad to only have one kidding this year (assuming Patty took).
