le piglets!



(pottery piglets by Gary Rith)
A city child came running into the farmhouse. “No wonder that mama pig is so big,” she yelled. “There’s a bunch of little pigs out there blowing her up!”

Becky Jo went to the Iowa State fair and took pictures of piglets for me (top) and then Kasey goes there too and takes more pictures of the same piglets and then the wife brings home the NY Times and the SAME batch of piglets are on the front cover! The wife sees this little piggy here, brownish, and sez 'that's a nutter butter piglet'.

My next door neighbor had a pet pig. The pig was always lying on his front porch.

nothing like the state fair, the best part is the livestock... nothing like spending an hour watching a grown man comb, spritz and brush a cow
