The Piggy Named "Iggy"

These pigs belong to my old man farmer friend. We currently have one pig named Q, we raised her and her sister Barbie from piglets, they were born here on the farm. We raised Barbie for a friend but she has since left the farm to go to higher grounds;) Q is ready to head to higher grounds as well but Maine Man has been so busy with the gardens and he is concerned that is just too warm to process the meat, plus we also still have pork in the freezer.
A couple weeks ago Q broke out. I get a call from my neighbor when I was out of town with the old man getting his chemotherapy treatment. She says"a lady just stopped and said your pig is loose." Yikes, slight panic moment!!! I had visions of her strutting up the road where the average car goes approximately 50mph. Long story short she had to awaken MM, he was working a stretch of nights. Q was captured thanks to my neighbor "Biker Stacy" and MM. Q would no longer be with us if MM didn't have to work that night.

There will be future posts about "Biker Stacy". She is my super cool neighbor that I have lots to post about. We hang out often and have SO much fun! She calls me "farmer Kim" hence her nickname. So much more to say about her but she deserves a post or two for herself!

Regardless I am down to the old farmer's house on a daily basis and can't refrain from taking pictures of his happenings from time to time. BTW, the Guinea Hen above on my header is from his farm too.


The kids have come home with lots of school work as the school year is finishing up. This is one of Flower Girl's poems I came across while browsing through her papers. Love it! Is is interesting to look through their projects, farming always seems to be their main theme.
The Piggy Named "Iggy"
There once was a fat, blue piggy named Iggy
Iggy knew a lot of red, blue, yellow, tall, fat piggies named Iggy.
One day, Iggy ate a piggy.
Iggy was still hungry, so Iggy ate another piggy.
Now his tummy was full of piggies.
He went to cross the piggy highway because he wanted to visit grandma.
He got hit by a piggy truck
and that was the end of the piggy, Iggy
