BRINGING HOME THE BACON

DO YOU LIKE BACON?  Well, most people, including me, likes bacon.  But does it seem like there is getting to be more and more uses for bacon? Used to be a time when you could go to a food dispensing place and buy a burger.  Now, every where you turn, there are bacon burgers. Or bacon wrapped hot dogs. Even bacon flavored milk shakes.  Bacon wrapped turkey's. Now we are told that the price of bacon is going up because there is a virus in pigs in China.  But this virus won't hurt people, but, well, the price is still going up. Time was when someone made a better than average wage, or got a raise in pay, they were bringing home the bacon.  Just a term, I realize, but still connected to bacon.  Why Bacon?  I don't know.  Why not Ham? Or hamburger. Or T bone steaks.  Or mutton? Or Chicken?  Still don't know.  Just a term, I guess. Still, every where you look, there is a reference to bacon.  Well, the price is going up, the quality is going down, and we will continue to eat bacon. Or bring home the bacon.  My advise.   Just don't make a pig of your self.   AND THAT'S THE VIEW FROM THE DITCH BANK
