Her friend had saved the day; her steer offering was accepted.

"Good-bye critters!
Too bad I'll miss the feast."

I bet the "critters" wish they could be missing the feast-LOL! Good take this week.
The king must be feeding thousands. Good thing the cattle don't understand human language. Thanks for the chuckle!
Very well done. We slaughtered a steer every year for meat. I so remember this.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
The king must indeed be having one big dinner party!! And it is a good thing the cattle don't understand or the king might be learning the meaning of stampede!! Fun one for the day! Hope you have a great week, Jim!

She could have stayed and had a 'to go'. LOL nice one.
Ta ta little critters.
Very fuuny, I loved it.
I had to wonder why she'd be missing the feast. Is there a mystery here that I missed?

Liked it. One query. Why is she called Erin? Does she look Irish, do you think?
no party for Erin, haha. Very good, funny indeed.
Kay: Erin wasn't invited to the feast. I suppose some of her cows were.

Gaelikaa, you are right, the Irish weren't involved. I picked 'Erin' because it is a lady's name with four letters. I use it most times.
Very cute, Jim!
Perhaps Erin has a cattle delivery elsewhere that day.
Erin sounds like a busy girl. :) Good one!
Wow...this just begs for more story behind it! What a great writing prompt!

Ha ha - my word verification is "rackto" as in "Put that rib rack to the fire, George"
So does he get a critter for steering her in the right direction? :)

Sorry, it's Monday. Have a great week!
What trouble did she find herself in, I wonder??? Have a great week! :O)
in this economy it pays to be creative in order to make money :)

Hope sends hugs
Funny! I suppose he cinched the deal by throwing in a load of barbecue sauce?
