There is a wonderful older colored gentleman (80+?) that sells fruits and veggies out of the back of his truck near the corner intersection here. He parks his truck, stobbs up an old restauarant umbrella that has seen better days and takes a seat in his old folding lawn chair. I met him the first spring here and I tried to cultivate a relationship with him. He is a very kind old man with agenerous heart and TONS of knowledge and know how. Sometimes his produce is over priced. Sometimes it is trucked up Florida. I always try to buy something from him. We talk alot about pigs. He has raised a "few" in his lifetime. Last year I wanted piglets but his sow rolled over on them and not too many survived. Yesterday I stopped and bought the kids a seedless melon ($4) and 2 cantalopes ($1.25). I asked if his sow was going to be dropping piglets any time soon. "Well, now, I got me one purtyy little pig you might like. He's black and white. He weighs in at about 40 - 60 pounds." After a few minutes talking we set a time for me to go look at his pig for sale. "He's a purty lil pig," He said again with a big smile. Well, I shouldn't have to tell you what an old old old hog lot in the woods looks or smells like. The pig was pink and black. More black than pink. I bathed it before we let his stench fill our barn. The kids were very surprised to see his legs were pink and his feet/hooves are white. If that tells you anything at all. He sure is a purty lil pig! My DH says he weighs about 50 lbs. Come September he is off to the butcher. What do you think? $40 for a 50 pound pig?
