WTF  I ordered beef today so I could start ramping up for the season.  That is the good news. The bad news is my beef went up about 35%. Hopefully a fifty cent increase won’t deter you from stopping in and ordering a beef this year.  Oh well, beef is going to be what’s for dinner, soon anyways.  I think next Thursday I’ll be cooking.  Not everyday yet, we’ll see how things go.
