How To: Butcher a Rabbit

January 2, 2013

I remember watching my Dad and Grandpa Gibson clean and butcher 20 to 30 rabbits at a time after a long day of hunting on Grandpa’s Missouri farm.

But back then my imagination was so ripe, I could picture myself on the the brightly decorated sets of his formulaic movies, befriending costars like Shelly Fabres. Shelly would ask “Libbie Marie (I would, of course, change my name) what did you and “E” do last night” and I would fill her in on all the exotic fun a sheltered ten year old could dream up for a date with the king.
