This blogs sole purpose has transitioned to one of keeping in touch with each other. Over the years it has been primarily for letting everyone know what is happening and also for promotion to add more folks to our Winter Texan family. The core of things has changed and we must change along with it. We still want to know what is happening with our friends no matter where they may be located. So continue to let us know where you are and what is on your plate.
Dave and Jim are busy cutting up the hog Jim shot! Now the work begins--hams will be smoked by Bob, liver will be dehydrated for "doggie treats", chops cut and frozen, loose meat frozen for sausage making at home, and the rest canned. It was a nice hog, very little fat. I think the wild pigs run constantly and are "lean and mean". Jim said the hog had tusks on top and bottom; he hopes to get the head when it is cleaned.
