I was at the farm the other day helping an Aunt and Uncle do some things around the old house place. I got to looking at the old smoke house, and asked if they remember using it to cure meat. This led to a discussion about where the smokehouse was back then, along with the outdoor kitchen and a shop building. Then my Uncle grinned and I could tell he was remembering something funny. He asked if I had ever measured a hogs tail? I told him I didn't reckon I had. He told me about how my Grandad used to love to show folks how to measure a hogs tail. He would have them stretch their finger out at the base of the hogs tail while he made a show of stretching the tail out straight along their arm. Then he'd take his other hand and hit their elbow and make their finger go up the pigs butt. Just one of the stories I had never heard, but it sounds just like him.
