Cutting Meat Post Card

Marie's postcards.  This one looks like it could be the Folk Art of C.W. Conners, but it isn't.  The name is CUTTIN OUT THE MEAT, what used to be southern tradition on cold mornings.  

When they killed a pig or cow everybody knew their job.
That reminds me, the job that kills live stock for processing:  I read that it has a high turnover rate.  Snuffing the life out of something with furry innocent eyes will get to a person.

One time recently, someone, I forgot who, told me last winter  they killed three pigs and packed up their parts.  I asked him did he give the pigs names and he sadly said yes.
