Many thanks to all of you who alerted me to the Chinese New Year – Year of the Pig! my time has come. I thought you might like to see the pig that started the madness. It will also provide me another excuse to try out my new light box.
The year was 1986, my brother had just gotten married and I was engaged. My new SiL collected geese. I was at a craft show and bought this little piggy bank. Boar was living in Michigan and we had a nightly phone chat. When I was telling him about the craft show I said, “you know how they collect geese? let’s you and me be pigs!” the rest is history.
Dude. Georgie and I are going to be money.
i remember that piggy! we have switched over time from geese to rabbits to fox/hound/horse but you are still pigs. tee hee.
Awww, *sniff* and you used your little lightbox to photograph the piggy. :P
i thought of you when I ordered a few things
that pig is SO cute!
one of our favorite quotes around the house, “that’s not a pug, that’s a pig!” and the reverse, depending on the situation. ;)
21+ years of collecting pigs, you must have quite a collection!
too cute! my mom collects chickens… i um, collect yarn.
How apropos. :-)
The reeesst of the story…love it!
I don’t blame you one bit!
“Let’s you and me be pigs!” I almost get choked up… so romantic. ; )
Boy there will be no shutting you up for the next 364 days; a whole year of piggies.
We’ll all have to leave comments with links to piggy pix everyday so you can poke-a-pig-a-day.
Ann, you must go to this link!!!
So sweet! I think Steve and I are monkey collectors, specifically the wise ones…
Love the story! Love the pig! Hate geesse!
