Pig Alert!

Beep... beep... beep... We interrupt this blog with breaking news...
Now, I'll be the first to acknowledge that I live in Philly and my total life experience with live pigs 
was passing two potbellied pets on my morning walk years ago... but, seriously???

Terrorize=Create and maintain a state of extreme fear and distress in someone; fill with terror.

I was terrified:
he'd find the kid's wading pool and never leave...
he would eat my garden...
he'd lay on my chihuahua...
my son would fall off his back before I got the picture...
my frisky beagle would fall in love...
we'd never be able to eat all that pork...
that much bacon would clog our arteries...
Uncle Eddie would hear of the pig roast and he'd never leave...

Any more?
Have a happy day:@)

On a serious note, looks like we're in for a nasty weekend here in Philly, as is the whole east coast. Obviously I'm hoping for nothing more than a bunch of rain and some wind. I have called off dinner with my sons on Sunday though, don't need anyone driving in that mess! If you're affected, please be careful.

  3. Lynn,
    Although the sun is out now, the next few days look quite rainy and windy. We were going to travel to the Boston area but will most likely stay put.
    Be safe.

  5. Wonder if the pig had a shirt on? Because all the criminals on Cops are shirtless. Seriously though, I'd be terrified that I would fall in love with the thing and it would want to live in my house.

  23. Hope you didn't let Earl watch that- it might give him ideas! Y'all stay safe and dry- we're battening down the hatches in VA too! :)

  24. You stay safe sweet lady. I am not sure how close you are to the coast. If you are in a coastal area please leave and go inland.
    I stayed during one hurricane and evacuated for two. When you stay in one you leave ever after. Grab Earl by the tail and high tail it!
    My prayers are with you and all who may be in harm's way.
    Hugs, Ginger
