  • My mind can wander, change the subject at the drop of a hat, as they say. One thing leads to another, and suddenly the conversation changes, reverts to yet another experience, a visit to old times once again.

    Case in point: My neighbor and I have a visit about pork, as in bacon, ham, sausage, etc. Seems as how bacon has doubled in price in just the last month. Apparently a virus is killing baby pigs by the thousands, therefore our traditional breakfast bacon will be a luxury item... not good new for a lot of us. I suspect lard will also become pricey.
