    I honestly didn’t know about these names for the groups Colleen. The pigs were a surprise since we always had pigs around the farm. Just never knew they were called a team. I’ll have to play with this for a while, but just signed up for the Grammarly app, and it’s looking like fun. We could also have some go ’rounds when I want to use my “KY” grammar, but that can also be fun. I wonder if a group of skunks would be called “a skank of skunks”?
