Drilled corn. Went to the burg to see about getting into the meat market.
Editor's Note: Is Allen keeping Joel in or out with that fence? For what seems to be ages now Allen has been mending the fence between him and Joel (Harrington). Others have even helped him but none of whom were Joel. Is there some urgency to this sudden repair? Okay, I'm joking I'm sure it has more to do with corralling animals than anything against Joel. Seems to be a big job though.
