Subj:     Box Lunch Auction w/Anagram (S171)
          From: collins2 on 5/12/00

 The church social was the lunch basket auction, when the
 gentlemen bid on the ladies' tasty homemade lunches.

 To make sure her beau, Bill, chose the right one, Rose
 secretly slipped him a note listing her meal's ingredients.
 Not wanting to seem too eager, however, she wrote her mouth-
 watering menu in code.

 "The words in bold print spell out the foods I've tucked
 into my basket," she whispered to her admirer.  "But just
 for fun, I mixed up the letters to form five anagrams.
 You'll have to decipher what they say."

 Unfolding her note, Bill read the following message:

 "My fondness for a farm boy will LEAD ME ON quickly TO ALSO
 ADAPT to livestock.  I will learn to SELL A COW and a FINE
 RED CHICK.  And when a lamb IS BORN WE will celebrate."

 Luckily, the infatuated lad was a whiz with words.  So when
 the auctioneer read off the contents of a blue and white
 wicker basket, he knew his sweetheart had packed it.

 Can you be as shrewd as Bill and serve up the five "goodies"
 Rose included in her cryptic picnic lunch?
