using your noodle, or, What the @#*! is he up to now?


...is what the neighbors might be saying. So, our packing shed is surrounded by large oak trees, and for weeks now, we have listened to acorns hitting the roof-it is so incredibly loud: ker-POW!wacka wacka wacka. They have started piling up under the low side of the roof. Well, it got the old gears crunking along, and we recalled that in the old days, folks used to let their hogs roam around in the woods and feed themselves on acorns. With the high cost of feed and all, we thought it might be a good opportunity to supplement Babe and Lyle's diet. So, Steve came up with the idea of shopvacing them up. Did it work?

Yup!
But, would our piggies like acorns? These piggies that have been spoiled on corn, apples, peaches, and the occasional chocolate chip?

Yes. Yes, they would. With some pears on the side.
