I would hate to see someone field dress an animal that has been shot during hunting season. Maybe it is just me. I have a rather strong stomach for such things. I would love to watch open heart surgery. The more blood and gore, the happier I am.
You're making quite a few assumptions there, Addie I know more than a few people who don't like to handle raw meat, much less touch innards or blood clots. A couple of people have even told me they can't eat something that looks too much like the live animal, like a chicken leg.

When people tell me that, I just sorta look at them in wonder. It's not hard to avoid doing that these days, especially for people who don't cook much. There's lots of already prepared food available for reheating.

I was responding to some of the posts at the beginning of this thread.

Welcome jchilders! IMO you have stumbled upon the best online "family" on the web. Most of the time we're all proper and normal, but on occasion we become those crazy cousins you might have that you need to avoid at family gatherings. We may bite, but if we do we've made sure to leave our teeth in the cup in the bathroom.

Wacky and dysfunctional as we might first seem, those of us who are addicted to DC have a real concern for each other. We're are own little support group at times. If you want to see us being kinder and gentler posters, skim through the posts on the Boston Marathon. We can be a pretty decent bunch when we have to be. We even talk recipes and cooking sometimes!

Finally, thank you for sharing your heartache over losing your little one. I'll say a prayer for your little angel and her family here on earth when I go to sleep tonight.
