After spending time in the hot afternoon sun picking vegetables from my friends’ garden, I wasn’t up to spending a lot of time in the kitchen. However, I had some nice vegetables I don’t have in my garden that would make a lovely meatless dinner.
Now, I must admit, I am not very good about eating meals without some form of meat. I grew up with grandparents having a big farm and every year we had freshly butchered beef and pork that went directly into our freezer.
It started with a calico kitten dodging vehicles on Hwy. 227 and the Battle of the Banks was born.
Anna Skirvin left her teller station at First National Bank of Carrollton to help a defenseless kitten find safety. She called Carroll County Animal Support President Sherry Stamper to see if someone could foster the kitten. CCAS members Cheri Martin and Robin Caldwell Welch drove over to pick up the kitten and proceeded to the veterinary office as the kitten was ill and malnourished.
