This is definitely your calling Shoe Thumbs up

And yes, I do remember party lines - that's how you kept up with all the goings on in the neighborhood. It was nothing to pick up the phone and end up talking with whomever was already chatting Big Grin

I still can't hear the word whistle pig without Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Keep those stories coming! Hurray!

Heheheh, yeh, those party lines were pretty much like Facebook or Twitter and such, except in real time, eh? (And no, all, I don't do Facebook!)

I'm gonna get that dang whistle pig. You'll see!

Howdy, Vic...you snuck in on me while I was posting...

One day we'll have " whistepig piquante", at YOUR house.

Have fun w/your daughter this weekend! (I wonder if she'd eat a whistle pig?...)

I am a old country girl at heart.
We do not have them down here but we do have squirrels and they are good cooked in rice but very bony

Boney squirrels? Probably cus your garden isn't big enough. The ones around here tend to eat all my tomatoes, all my corn, all my peaches, etc. You'd think I had a squirrel farm instead of a veggie farm. Oh well, I'm hoping to get some to start eating onions and garlic. Then when they are butchered they will be "self-seasoned".

Wish me luck!
