Into December and things are still open, e.g., (no snow, just mud)

Getting a good jump into winter without frozen ground and snow...  Boy o boy, I got the feeling that we're going to pay for this later.  Critters don't seem to mind the warmth though, come to think of it, me neither.   If it was like this every beginning of winter lots more people would want to stay.  Thank goodness that is not the case.  Most of the time, say after August, its blowin and cold.  Just right for "settin' out."  On to pig news...  Boar Boy, also known as Redmin, got into one of the gilt's pen, and well, lets just say he's having messy fun.  I'm not too sure that the gilts feel the same way about it.  He has to go and I'm off to build a new pen for those gilts.

PPignick 11/11/11

Wow, what a great first ppignick!!!  We roasted, on a spit, a fresh pig stuffed with a fresh pig stuffed with sausage and fresh slab bacon.  Wholly cricker!  Some good!
The neighbors gathered and the rest is history...
I'm indebted to Tim and Lori for the idea and the place to do it.  Plus all the other stuff that needed to be done prior to your neighborhood descending upon your crib;  Then there was Pit Master Walls who stepped up in a big (wide awake) way and got 'er done buddy!  Thanks to Momma Sue mother of two young lads and devote spouse who let Masterbaster Kevin out for the night!!! Literally!!!  And thanks to all who came out in the wind.
The bonus was; the pork was "face-fall-off good," and to see all the good people together at the same time!

  Looking forward to the next one...  Word on the street is she's a moving down the road apiece, down in the 'crik proper' one could say...
Oh, by the way, we do homage to the days of the great Pignick of SWH.  However,  this ain't that and so the name 'PPignick' for pig stuffed with pig, but still on Beautiful MDI.  Happy days,
