Too much nakedness...

Naked Pig!

It’s been brought to my attention that in the fair city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, there lives a naked pig. Actually, he’s only semi-nude because he has a little coat but that’s the issue. The coat is too little and the pig has become a big, strong, incredibly handsome pig.

Auntie OddBall to the rescue. This has been in the works for some time and you’d have thought I’d have taken it down to the poor little freezing porker by now. I’m sure he’s all excited about having a new felted wool coat 2 weeks before spring. But between my schedule and my sister’s, actually meeting up has been problematic. There’s been a whole lot of phone calls that start with…”thought I’d come down this weekend…..Sure but I’m off to Toronto.” or “are you free to come down this weekend because I’m actually off…Sorry, I’m working. Again.”

In the meanwhile, the pig has froze his parts off while his people try to get their act together. Fortunately for the long suffering Willie, there’s been a scheduling break through. In about an hour, Ditto and I are off to visit Willie and fit his new coat. Pictures will ensue. Yeah, yeah, I’m going to drink my sister’s booze supply when I’m there. She’s not getting off scot free on this one.

In any event, I still have to finish packing and round up the clan. It’s road trip time.

Talk to you’se all laters, like Friday, I’m thinking; thanks for reading.

The IT support division has control of the computer and TV remote. Party time.

I can't wait to see the pics. And just to let you know, I think you are the first person to ever knit a jacket for a pig. Publish the pattern and write a book!

I've been wondering about that pig jacket...

You know half-naked pigs need trousers! You can't have them running around without their drawers like some common Disney character.

Actually, it's just the reflection of his bowl but I had to take a double take as well once you'd mentioned it.
