DEAR ABBY: Every year, my husband and
brothers-in-law go deer hunting. They always meet at my house. They
leave bloody footprints and pieces of deer carcass through the house
and their dirty, smelly clothes in a big pile in the kitchen. They
never wash a dish. Not only do they kill these creatures and drag
them back to my house to clean and cut up, but they also do their
"processing" in my small kitchen.
Kay in St. Joseph, Mo.
DEAR KAY: When the next hunting party is planned,
schedule a nice vacation for yourself. Make it plain you will be
back only after your husband has made sure the house is spotless. If
the job is too much for him, he should hire a professional cleaning
If your husband can't get a cleaning company to
come in and clean up the mess after "processing" the kill, check
into a company that cleans up crime scenes!
