    Drove home from town knowing that my stepdaughter was roughly 20 minutes behind us. We turned off the main highway onto the narrow and crooked county road that leads to our road. No sooner than we had turned off the highway DH had to put on the brakes for some loose pigs in the middle of the road. Worried that DSD wouldn't see them in time to stop, I texted her....

    "Beware of pigs on Mineral (Rd.)!"

    She was still laughing when she got here. [​IMG]

    I bet a pig could do a real number on your car too!

    Quote:Well see, I already added that into the equation. I figured she'd slow down thinking I meant the other type of P-I-G (pride, integrity, guts). Either way she'd be okay. [​IMG]

    The meat gets ruined by the car impact...........[​IMG]

    Friend takes his pigs to butcher in a trailer and he had to give
    one encouragement with his boot to get it in.
    Butcher told him "Ya kicked the pig in the arse didn't ya?"
    "How did you know?"
    Butcher says "the big footprint on it"
