Stern visage

He looks like a man you could reason with but probably wouldn't want to contradict. The shed is kept neat with a stock of canned vegetables & fruit and more jars to fill next summer. It looks like the hogs have been scalded and the hair removed to prepare for the next step on the way to the table.

That Pig

He looks awfully familiar!
