You'd think so, but  .......   I'm not so sure .......  perhaps I might win the lottery, ay??  whistle

No, the winning lottery ticket for Saturday is mine- haven't bought it yet tho.

A new freezer would probably be way cheaper to run too- we have my Mother's old one in the garage and it eats power- I keep emptying it ready to get rid, Sir keeps sneaking stuff into it and filling it again....I need a padlock.

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

Bet your freezer smells are as nothing compared to the stink raised by the longsuffering (43 yrs and I'm still not domesticated.) .She discoved that I was hoarding fox skins in the freezer,had to have  10 to send by securicor frozen to keep sweet! It was in my gamekeeping days (hence Seth local pub was Woolpack) .Wages were about £20 a week and skins averaged £12 the carcase was for the taxman! With 2 toddlers the additional income was very welcome.

Foxes nowhere near as bad as mink ! If any woman smelt one as skinned she would never wear it .My daughters had Cindy clothes trimmed with it after i'd cured them.

Blimey, Roy. I never knew fox skins could be that valuable. How did you send the carcass to the taxman? By Securicor too?  big_laugh

Does mink really stink? These facts are never revealed by the fashion pages.

taxman never collected ,he still could down to the bare bones is how he likes us. Mink are a mustilid like polecats and ferrets ,multiply ferret by 10 and your getting close  (2 sniffs is greedy ). Fox market is no more ex ironcurtain countries with colder winters produce much better skins,still a market for most skins and feathers to fly fishing suppliers most anything except ruffers never did find a customer for them.whistle
