We ventured out into the sleet and freezing rain this afternoon to attend a hammered-dulcimer concert. It was a nice afternoon of music....free of charge!
Afterwards, we went to a fund-raising benefit for an old friend of mine who has cancer. I bought a raffle ticket for a half of a pig, for $5. About an hour ago my friend's sister called to tell me I had won it! So I drove back down to the community hall to retrieve 85 pounds of pork....butchered & wrapped! A couple of hams, LOTS
of pork chops, a bunch of sausage (links, patties, bulk), roasts, ribs, a bit o' bacon, and a couple other assorted odds and ends.
Let's see.....85# for the cost of a $5 ticket......hmmmm, about 6¢ per pound! How's that for frugality?!
