The Best Medicine....

Six hundred pounds of pork...
If laughter is the best medicine, I should be the healthiest person you know...

Today, we delivered our pork. We had 600 pounds to deliver and 2 friends were picking up theirs from the processor at the same time we were. A short time later, my phone rang:

C: I have a head.
Me: A head? What kind?
C: A pig head.
Me: They were picked up by G and T to make souse meat. How do you have a head?
C: I don't know. But I have it. BTW, I wish had a picture of me when I opened the bag. I was okay until I turned it around and saw the snout.

By this time I was a puddle.....

A bit later, the phone rang again. 

C: Are you coming to get this, um, this, um thing in  my car?
Me: The pig's head? Yup. I'll be there in a bit.
C: It's in a cooler; will it be okay?
Me: I don't think it will go anywhere. If it's cool, it'll be fine.
C: I can put it in the dumpster....
Me: I'll be there in a bit. G and T want it...

Again, I was a puddle... It wasn't that she was so funny, but the background music in my car was killing me.... Mister kept whistling the theme from "The Godfather..."

And, so, it goes... 


  1. ha ha ha i read the previous post too & nearly fell of my chair laughing! you crack me up!
    haven't had grass fed pork for years, can't get it here where i am, everyone seems to think fattening their livestock up in their last 6-12months on grain is good but all it does is give you tough, awful meat.
    good on you for raising your own :))
    thanx for sharing

  2. Guess it was better than waking up with it in your bed! Gramps always loved souse. Could never take the smell to get it past my nose to try it.


Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
