Will the Temporary Home Serving as the Sweet Swine County Museum Become Permanent?
Sweet Swine Scoop has learned that while some minor renovations hopefully are being made to upgrade the Sweet Swine County Museum, it will temporarily (?) house its renowned collection of Sweet Swine County historical artifacts and memorabilia in downtown Fairmont, MN. The museum has long been a landmark in the town of Split Hoof, but has fallen into disrepair after county poet lariat, Ronnie P. Silage, was hired as caretaker a few years ago (he needed some extra income due to a shortage of sales from his last published book of poetry). When asked why the condition of the museum has deteriorated under his purview, Silage matter-of-factly told Sweet Swine Scoop, "Listen, when I got this job I was told it would only require washing a few windows and sweeping once in a while. Well, I am here to tell you, I found out if you don't keep up with things they can get out of hand real fast!"
Sweet Swine Scoop asked part-time Curator and Museum Director, Mrs. Swanson, how long it would take to move all the precious contents to Fairmont. She replied, "Ja, Ja, I'm working on it! I'm only one person, so this isn't an easy task and might take a while. Ronnie, as you can imagine, is very little help when it comes to things other than writing bad poetry." Sweet Swine Scoop will keep you in the loop when the Sweet Swine County Museum opens in Fairmont.
