Pigs or Cows? ... Pigs.
I know what you are thinking.
You think I haven't been blogging because I'm just layin' 'round here stuffed full of Thanksgiving feast food ... too full, temporarily fat, and lazy to put fingers to keyboard.
Not hardly, although it sounds delightful.
Except for Thursday, when I did resemble a lazy stuffed gourd sort of guy, I have been really busy. When I finally stop at midnight each night ... it's hard to face the dialup home connection.
The living room is really coming together now. When I finish this post, I'm heading to G'ville to get a few more supplies from Lowes. I'll have the town to myself because 99.89% of the city will be glued to their sets watching the only game that must, at all costs, be won ... UF vs. FSU.
My crew is below me as I type this gathered around the tv in the still disheveled living room, hooting and hollering, and thoroughly enjoying themselves.
They will not miss me for the next few hours.
What about the pig?
Today I went to Mayo to buy a $190 show piglet for the Suwannee River Livestock Fair in March.
Longtime readers know we raise a show pig each year. It is that time again ... somehow.
Blogging makes me realize how fast a year can go by. It seems like just yesterday I was writing about last year's pig.
This year's pig is a little girl. I'll introduce you to her this week. That's her nose above.
She has no name yet.
The honor of naming her is Junior's since it is his pig. He is open to suggestions although he's never chosen ... chuckled over, but never chosen ... your excellent suggestions.
Feel free to try again ... I really liked last year's suggestion from one of you ... "Pig Newton", but he didn't choose it.
I think I'll suggest "Porkwah", since I like the French language so much.
Oh, the cow reference in the title ... what about the cows?
Yes, I have cow pictures too ... I will let you SEA them soon.
Right now, an empty home improvement big box store is calling my name.
