Pigs are actually much smarter than most dogs, which was the theory behind the protection program. Mum seemed to miss the connection between pigs and pork products. And if you ever saw the interior of an abattoir, you’d never eat meat again!
Nope. I love the stuff! My sister’s mother-in-law used to make the BEST fruit cake in the world! She started in January or February and soaked it in booze all year. You could get tiddly just opening the can and taking a good sniff. Barring that, the old Jane Parker fruit cake was pretty darned good, too.

As she got older, my mum sent more and more money to scam charities, and nothing we could say to her could convince her otherwise. She didn’t send money to religious places – she was at least smarter than that – but anything else? Send her a sob story and a return envelope, and she was yours. My favorite was The Pig Protection Program; they rescued pigs from slaughter houses, which is a decent idea, but dear Heavens!

Go shovel snow, or something!
