Pigs, Goats and Sheep

Pacoima, California - December 2008

One of my coin laundry customers sells pigs, goats and sheep. Keep in mind, my laundry is not in some rural hamlet. He raises these animals right in the middle of the San Fernando Valley.
He brings my employees fresh milk from his cows, but I am too squeaked out to try it. It is not the issue of raw milk that concerns me as much as the appearance of the room temperature recycled milk jugs. If it was delivered on a bed of dry ice in a pristine, sealed stainless steel container, I am sure I would be dipping Toll House cookies in it right now. I will admit, I have been conditioned by the sterility of the grocery store and I should loosen up.
