Pig Alert!

Hey everyone! Guess what I saw in this month's Country Living Magazine- Piggy banks!


Earl says he's not surprised pigs are such a collectable, 
after all, folks have always wanted to live "high on the hog"...
Definition of High on the Hog:
The source of this phrase is often said to be the fact that the best cuts of meat on a pig come from the back and upper leg and that the wealthy ate cuts from 'high on the hog', while the paupers ate belly pork and trotters.
Pork belly... isn't that... BACON? That's quite the delicacy, says this pauper:@)

Have a happy day!

  7. Who Knew that ONE DAY the Piggy Bank would be worth MORE than it's contents! I LOVE the gold and green ones BEST! Earl is looking "Cute as a Button" with his little chef hat!
    Great article, and it made ME SMILE!
    I wish I had OUR OLD piggies now!
    Hugs to you,

  9. I was thinking about you on Good Friday when I was in a restaurant that had a HUGE pig on display. (oh my gosh I meant that in the nicest possible way)
    He was so gorgeous and looked like the one in the lower left of your picture. It was up on the bar and had to be 3 feet tall at least.

  10. I saw that in CL. We say "high on the hog" all the time here even though it's not happening to us.

  11. Hahahahaha! Earl had to be so proud! LOL

    I did not know where that expression came from, so I learned something today. Thanks!

    Loved seeing your pretty white cake, too, with the 3-D decorations. Cool effect!!

    Hugs,
