Some Good Lamb

Twenty-one years ago an Afghani woman (who wishes to remain anonymous) and her husband had a hankering for some good lamb. What they had found at Shop ‘n Save was very different than what they were used to. Where they were from in Afghanistan, lamb came straight from the farm, and I mean straight. Since “sheep farm” wasn’t a category in the phone book in Maine, she asked her sister to watch the kids while she and her husband got in their car and headed away from the city. They figured they’d come to a pasture with some sheep on it eventually.
