Jody- my neighbors are vegans. It was one of those very funny neighbor incidents the day his koi pond collpased. Here, I'll give you the scenario....
Husband-Dan- I am going to kill that #%^$&$^#&^$^
Wife-Ariel- You can't, we're vegans!
Dan- I am not going to eat it, I am going to kill it!!!!! That &^$&$&^$&^%##&*%*&$
Ariel- Please dont
Dan- It killed Bozo(name of very old koi her grandfarther had given her).
Ariel-That no good^%$#&^%$&^, How are we going to kill it!
So funny. They shouldn't feel badly, though. Groundhogs are vegan, also.
Groundhogs have very tough skins, or so I'm told. Old-timers use to skin them and cut thier cured hides into strips to make bootlaces that would last nearly forever. After pricing a pair or store bought laces at Tractor Supply for almost 7 dollars, I may just see if all that's true.
Hee Hee..snicker, thats funny! I do feel for the koi. I love mine, raised em from little 3"'rs, all are 10-25" now, eat out of your hands & I can pet em. I see new bootlaces in the neighborhoods future! Jody
