If someone in East Tennessee is missing their tame pot-bellied pig, I know where you can find her.
The Thanksgiving Ham, er, Pig
While trying to digest a huge Thanksgiving meal and visit with our friends and family at my parents house, I quickly lost patience with one of their dogs who would not stop barking on the front porch. After a few minutes, I finally went over to the window to knock on it each time she let out a yap. After a few raps on the window, something white and PIG-like caught my attention in the dark front yard. At first I thought I was seeing things - and when I announced to the room that there was a PIG in the front yard, everyone (myself included) thought I was crazy. And yet, YES, there WAS a PIG in the front yard, grazing away while the dog barked her head off on the front porch. Let me tell you, there's nothing quite like finding a PIG in the front yard to make Thanksgiving a little more interesting...
C.S. Lewis once said, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." Dream BIG. After going "there and back again," The Hubs & I have created a home that is full of books, stimulating conversation, and the laughter of our five kids. We have been the recipients of Amazing Grace, and our life goals can be summed up in four words: Love God, love people.

Happy Thanksgiving! That is so funny about the pig. Our neighbors in NC had a pot-bellied pig that they would walk around the neighborhood. Our dog would go crazy whenever she would see it.ReplyDelete
