In case you ever wondered--this is where we buy our beef. Either beef chunks or ground beef, this guy has some fresh stock. When I walk up to the counter to put in my order, I usually have to dodge blood droppings. I guess that indicates the meat is fresh.
A friend from another city here told me a funny story about her butcher. It was a warm day and the man was having trouble keeping the flies away from his hanging meat. So he brought out his bug spray and started to spray the meat! My friend was appalled! I can laugh because it occurred in another city. But with warm weather approaching, maybe I won't be laughing for too long!
