    Yes, my love. It's been a sad week all round. One of our old pupils was the child who drowned near Mangere Bridge in the weekend along with his Dad.

  • Islander,

    An occlusion of subject matters:
    tonight, I have 3 home-grown-in-Oamaru purple-black urenika (a Maori spud) steaming;
    and several slices of venison backsteak *ready to go in the scanpan,
    and in another iron pan, a large sliced brown onion and 4 large cloves of garlic with a bit of butter, soon to be fried.
    You use the water from the urenika added to the meatjuice & the onion&garlic buttery juices, and you add a tiny bit of flour. Stir carefully, and you have the best gravy in the world…
    uncle Bill’s dogs used to fight over it (no garlic then but everything else.)
    We kids used to , too-
    busher lamb & wild pork? Haunches & backsteaks?
    (Not to mention all that Moeraki kaimoana!)
    Helped my mother bring up 6 very healthy kids…
    and my uncle Bill to have bloody good pigdogs (all mongrels. Disobedient ones were summarily shot. Bill could never do that with his cats…)

    No, not really when you know dogs. The night Meg, the supreme labrador glutton, died (see a few pages back in my posts today for the tale), her silly but enthusiastic assistant dog was given his dog roll. Usually he would gobble it. That night he stood and looked at the food for 10 minutes. Then picked it up and trotted down to her grave under the trees and buried it on top: for Mum, she would never miss dinner. So so sad.

    Poor you, poor dog. something very pure and unmixed about grief for a dog. Because they are so loyal.

    One dog stroller as promised (sans hound in this case as it was still in store – but these are not that uncommon)

    I know people who put their children in such things and we know how that ended up...
    OMG!!! think of the puppies,
    Don't let the puppy see that!
    Don't allow rover to hear the "F" word...
    Canine and Abel bodied people are becoming one.

  • Islander,

    Well the gravy et al was as it should be – but I missed a dog **to share it with-
    with very few exceptions*, they are straightforward direct & honest creatures, with love/loyalty as prime motivators-
    *uncle Bill had -for a year and a bit- a kelpie-blue-heeler cross. We were warned as kids to never go into the dog yard if Tam was loose – if he was in his kennel, chained, OK. He was an excellent attacking pig-dog – but he just couldnt be trusted.
    The day he bit a chunk out of the calf of my uncle’s longterm friend & pig-hunting mate was the day he died.

    **Or a sibling. Or a friend- however, all youse fellas? Enjoy the rich tastes & aromas
    of venison gravy!

    Do you know the species?

    Souvenir de la Malmaison, from 1843, should be available if you hunt around : )

    What sort of Mama am I? Ruby tells me she would like you to see more photos of her. So why the hell not?
    In repose. Mum's place.
