those pigs look like cousins of the evil chipmunks which inhabit the walls of my house.

TLP said...

Very descriptive writing. I could almost smell it.

Thank you Nessa for your reading. Nicely done.

Ha, Minka. Squiggliness is the standard.

Caution, Saurkraut, chipmunks die like bad guys in movie westerns, it's cute enough to make their murderer repent.

Thanks, TLP.

Bear, I think Churchill said that cats look down on you, dogs look up to you, but a pig will stand beside you as a friend.

Pig's version:

'Twas an evening in October, I'll confess I wasn't sober,
I was carting home a load with manly pride,
When my feet began to stutter and I fell into the gutter,
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
Then I lay there in the gutter and my heart was all a-flutter,
Till a lady, passing by, did chance to say:
"You can tell a man that boozes by the company he chooses,"
Then the pig got up and slowly walked away.

TLP, that's fantastic.

Great reading, Nessa! Jeremiah and Herr Ditmärchen are such a fun pair:) It's a fun read, Doug!

What that is, is The Famous Pig Song

Nessa! So wonderful to finally hear your voice.

Doug -- I am much enjoying the story! Keep writing ....

Loved it.
Makes me want to stand outside the butcher shop - if there were one around here - with a sign saying
"pigs are people too".

Jamie Dawn said...

Love it!! Bravo!!!!

I felt downright happy during this whole episode.
I also had a hankering for custard.

:-)

Doug said...

Thanks, Actonbell, I have hope for the pair in subsequent sections.

Never heard of them, TLP, but I just became a fan.

Thanks, Quilly. I'm trying to keep up with it, honest.

Pigs are people, Cooper, and people are pork.

Haha, JD. I did, too. And wildberry custard sounds great, but the fictional version isn't very filling and I have no idea where to find the real thing.

I always wanted to live in a stone hut with a thatched roof. Of course, that desire wouldn't last long if I ever did.
