"I like Pigs"
I think Winston Churchill said it this way:
"Cats look down on you, dogs look up to you but pigs look you straight in the eye. I like pigs." I do too.
So my friend Cheri's young daughter Rat surprises me last week with a package containing this SWEET piggy box and YOU KNOW I want to make something like it myself, and so I did! The one thing I did was make the knob into the piggy snout. Thanks Rat for a great inspiration!
Yesterday I was so pleased, speaking of pigs. I get this message from a veterinarian (Cornell Vet school is just up the road and there are hundreds of vets in Ithaca). This vet is a pig lover too, but serious. Heidi had grown up on a pig farm and is now a large animal vet, working on large animals obviously, but a lot of pigs this year in particular. She and her family came over to talk pigs, look at pig pottery and watch a demo, and happily wander off with talk of 'we'll need to order a half dozen pig mugs....'. Doesn't everybody???????
