The Subject Is Pigs
I have read several things about pigs lately so it brought memories to me. Just now read Jack's blog about piggy banks. I still have one from Elementary school that a boy who drew my name at Christmas gave me. I wasn't thrilled but I have kept it all these years. It is a pretty one as pigs go. One of Mel's relatives has a pig for a pet and it runs and plays with the dogs. John has told me when his Mama and Daddy ran a beer joint on the main street of his small hometown they also had pigs and hogs in the back. John's job was to feed them each day. He started collecting the remains of beer out of bottles customers left. I'm sure it was small amounts but added up. When he got enough he would pour it in their pan with the slop. He says his Daddy found the pigs drunk and John got in serious trouble. I guess it could be true or maybe just a story.
