First lets start by saying that--really?!?!--I have been working with hogs every day--and sometmes 2 times a day--of course that would be morning and night--so that one has to shower two and once in a while three times a day. Let's not make it easy and have the 2 a days both in the morning--that might be too much planning for some people--but I'm not really complaining as it is the life we chose and I do love working with my husband. It's just the fact that even though I grew up on a hog farm--I just don't really like to get all dirty and stinky--and if you have never smelt a hog barn--it is quite a pungent odor. I really like to stay clean and actually have my hair looking nice during the day!!
OK enough ranting about that--I am really proud of the fact that I can sort and load these critters just about as good as my husband!!
The trade show was quite interesting--I probaly couldn't do it more than one day--but still it was interesting. The really cool part was all the sponsored food tents outside!! The smell of grilled pork just made your mouth water--and then to find out that it was all free!! Well even better!! One company had a Hawaiian Luau theme with real hula dancers. There was fresh squeezed lemonade with appetizers in another tent. The most amazing delight was something called hog wings--they come from the shank bone in the leg--and they just melted in your mouth!! Totally worth the price of admission!!
