Eli held her Mom's arm tightly. She had relied on her sagacious judge of character. Why did he drop them off here above the Omaha stockyard?

You done creep me out, Jim!

*suddenly finds self taking a twisty, macabre path less taken, off of Memory Lane* Some years back, I was employed by my Knuckle Matt, who was a house/barn painter. Our worst mission (and nightmare!): painting a stock removal "factory"! I haven't eaten meat since. Not even chicken, because the ones cluck-loitering at this place seemed to actually enjoy wading through --Dare I say it? I'll spare you the details at least--> the most gruesome of the "goo"! YIKES! (Louder-->) YIKES!

Yep, to this day, no amount of "Would you like fries with that, ma'am?" will get me to eat a hamburger. Thank God, McDonalds now has oatmeal on the menu.
You do this so very well Jim. You truly do.

Have a terrific day. :)
Why indeed! hope thy'll be okay!
Peeeuuuw! I think Eli had better get some of that sagaciousness fast!
Ew, ick.
There is a meat plant about an hour away from here, and it always makes me bilious when we drive past it on the Trans-Canada Highway.
And I've driven past many feedlots, but not, as I recall, a stockyard. Sounds perfectly dreadful, to put it succinctly (which you did).

Boy, this is not what I expected-LOL! (And everyone is going in different directions with the picture this week...)
They got lost? U-oh!
Why indeed? Will we ever find out?
Good one!
They were checking out from whence their steak dinner came? Now I must google sagacious ... why, why?? You are stretching my vocabulary :)
What a dastardly man! Hope they get out okay.

PS: I don't think it was that vulgar.
Ooh, this one makes my imagination take trips - and not to fields of daisies.

A bit creepy and a lot of fun, Jim.
Yikes! She asks a good question. Not sure they want to know the answer. Good MF -- you've generated some thought!
