The ham to go with the eggs...

Actually a friend is opening a BBQ place and wanted pig shots for the walls... boy was that a stinky job.... but I did it.

I named this one Wilber, because as a child, my favorite book was Charlotte's Web,

    I don't eat pork anymore because of this cute guy! I read about pigs and learned they are more intelligent than dogs....I just can't do it. But I LOVE this photograph, and your efforts to capture his portrait are heroic!!! :) Btw, E.B. White, who wrote Charlotte's Web, lived in Blue Hill, Maine, which is just 8 miles from us. I loved that book too, Betty....I always will.
