The Wagon Dragger

Cooler temps outside mean that Bisket remembers her former life. Namely being a pig milker on a farm. She's traveled far from her pig cheese making past, but in fall she dreams about harvesting apples. She thought would Madge would poopoo her idea but she said her Noni made the best apple butter, and it sounded fun. Little did Bisket know that Madge can shake every damn apple from the tree by hitting it with her shoulder like a linebacker. Mental note to never make Madge mad.
