"But, I've got to feed my family."
It's the first and usually the only quote that I hear, to know precisely what King-Robin Hood-Ron will be pursuing for the day.

"Honey, I've got food for my family!"
I'm guessing a few hundred pounds! It was a whopper.
As an added bonus, I was pleased to accompany THE HUNTER to the processing plant in Catawba, Va. (A first for me in this room!)
|These guys know what they are doing!|

|I'm thinking of ways to decorate!|
