Green Acres?

Let me start by saying I am a city girl, born and raised! However, I married a country boy 30 years ago and his parents gave us some ground! Need I say more! You can take the boy off the farm but you can never take the farm out of the boy!

Over the years we have raised and broke horses, raised cows, even raised 75 chickens once. Don't ask. Over the past 10 years we have mainly concentrated on raising and running hounds. Well my son-in-law (also a country boy) decided to raise pigs! So the first batch was born. Guess where I am going with this? That's right, we bought 2 piglets. They are pretty cute right now and my daughter is getting really attached to them. She calls them Babe and Gordy, but my husband calls them Pork and Chop, just to remind her what is going to happen come about January. The poor guys are going to have an identity crisis, with multiple names and all!

Well anyway, here is a picture of Babe (pork) and Gordy (chop) as they enjoyed some over-ripe watermelon.
And let me assure you that I DON'T slop the hogs! That is my daughter's job! Mine? Take great pictures and make scrapbook pages!

So go have an adventure today, and whatever you do, never, never marry a farmer!
