We have the meats


Kathleen and Stan are driving to Red Wing Publishing today to celebrate the retirement of old friend and chief executive Steve Messick. (There's a free buffet luncheon involved.) First stop is the Drees farm to pick up a care package of dressed venison to deliver to the carnivores in Matt’s extended family. On Monday, fresh jerky and deer stick samples were offered, direct from the Drees garage beer refrigerator Monday, and proved to be quite tasty with a medium-light texture, as prepared by Von Hansen’s Meats. All in all, the Drees hunting cartel turned in a respectable year. Matt’s grandson shot his first deer ever, his son, Jimmy (with his dad, above), shot three -- and then reported that his father shot at one, but missed.
Grandpa doesn’t remember that.
