Strings & Crumbs
Oh, DH and a friend went to the Southwest Type Conference in Belton, Texas Saturday. I thought we would be safe. He took my car. (It gets good gas mileage.) I thought we would be safe in that he wouldn't be able to buy any hogs. Well, I was wrong. No, he didn't put it in my car. He had already been warned about doing that. No, he found someone from our area there with a trailer and got them to bring it back. But he did pick a good one. He is a Hampshire. Black & white. His name is King Kong (that's what his papers say). Yeah, I know. A hog named King Kong. Just so Godzilla doesn't show up. Oh, by the way. We also have hogs that are Herefords. That's their breed. White faces & feet and reddish brown bodies. We have one litter and sow in the barn that were born 2-24. There are three litters due in the next several weeks. There will be no shortage of pigs or crumbs around here. LOL
Oh, I forgot. We are expecting puppies. Ruby and Max got married. That's what our seven year old DGD said. Ruby and Max are border collies and we had been thinking of finding a puppy. Max is getting on in age. Ruby is due around Easter. Baby pigs and puppies. Baby granddaughter. Must be a year for babies.
And speaking of DGD--our daughter called this week and said to check our email. She had sent a picture of DGD. She was grinning really big and something was missing. You guessed it. She lost an upper front tooth.
The other one is loose. We will be hearing a lisp when she talks. Oh and speaking of DD--they went bowling Friday night. She sprained her ankle. They have spring break this week. She is a teacher. She has her foot propped up and is knitting. Doesn't sound bad to me. Other than the throbbing foot. I could live without that.
