The whole hog!

We spent a rare night without the kids this saturday - a 50th birthday in 1970's theme! All I can say is that I hope the pictures never see the light of day!

The next morning I bumped into this fine looking beast - the sad part of the tale is that one of his siblings had been the guest of honour at the birthday feast the night before!

I did not have the heart to mention it!


You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

Did anybody mention bacon?

My scariest wildlife encounter this year was with a gigantic Feral Pig, so I say 'eat up!' :)

Poor Piggy soul ... he thinks you like him for his good looks and personality, while all of the time, you are thinking bacon. For shame, Stewart.

He really is a cute personable pig ... I used to befriend the animals at my Uncles farm ... he was a butcher, so we all know where they ended up. Still doean't sit well with me until I sit down to a good juicy steak. Then suddenly I don't think about it .... hmmm. Have a great week,Stewart and Happy 50th if it was you :), or it not, to whoever it was ...

Happy Birthday! Of course it's a belated wish, because as always, I have to play catch-up with my commenting.
