I’m late.  As some of you that follow me may have noticed, I have done several blog posts using a “national day” as a theme. Well, March 1st was National Pig Day and I missed it. The reason this is a big deal is that my mom loves pigs (Hi, Mom!) and has a wonderful collection of them. They’re mostly ceramic figurines, but she has a few other items too – like the iron flying pig doorstop or the pig-weighing-herself salt and pepper shaker, for example. Quite a while ago now my mom told all of us not to give her anymore pigs because she felt she had more than enough. I don’t always abide by that wish, but I’m sure she’ll find this “ode to the pig” blog post quite acceptable!
