We used to go to different people's houses, you know. In those days I mean they could hear music and - if somebody could play an instrument, man, they would get up at night, from one o'clock; and they'd fix food and they'd have drinks and they'd stay up till five, six o'clock in the morning and give you money. It wasn't a dance but a serenade; we'd go from house to house. In those days there wasn't too much things like juke boxes, high fidelity sound, wasn't nothing like that then; and whenever somebody could play and could play well, he was considered as somebody; he could go anywhere and he had it made, you know? - Baby Doo Caston, on playing music in Natchez in the 1920s, interview with Jeff Todd Titon

'Gargantuan' wild hog weighing nearly 800 pounds caught in Texas

just no end to this exciting story.

http://www.mysanantonio.com/sports/outdoors/article/Nearly-800-pound-hog-caught-in-Texas-6043871.php#photo-7445088

"A ginormous hog that tipped the scale at 790 pounds is living carefree, and getting fed and watered down in his corral ? for now.

The hog was bagged after what could be a catch of a lifetime for Blaine Garcia and Wyatt Walton on a ranch Jan. 16 in De Leon, a town about 35 minutes west of Stephenville and 95 miles southwest of Fort Worth."

Pig war dispatches from Hays- & Caldwell counties, central Texas. Plenty of feral pig data punctuated with mildly amusing alliteration. Disappointingly, while there are a couple of pig portraits (porktraits?) in the body of the text there's not a single photo of a live pig in the story's accompanying gallery, mostly just shots of good ol' boys fixin' to blaze away with AR15s and night vision. http://www.mystatesman.com/news/news/local/war-against-feral-hogs-rages-on/nprbX/

The final two paragraphs of that Statesman article are priceless for anyone who values our Mercan gun culture. That image is gonna stay with me a long time--drunk shotgun-wielding Texan in flip-flops gets taken down by feral hog who's faster AND smarter than he is.

They are very intelligent creatures. Smart enough to know it's better in Tuscany than Texas.

Now how did that lyric go? "T for Tuscany, T for Tennessee, you gotta tell me momma, got to leave Texas today . . .."

Next month I will be teaching mandolin up in Brasstown, NC where friends usually invite us over for supper and we eat wild hog.  They live close to the earth.
