Somebody tell him you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. If he's bald, he'll need a piggy wig. From a market, probably. Anyway, I ran all the way home. And had roast, er, beef?

Then you also need a little Mozart from SALZberg to flavor your CHOPin.

A little story that happened to us a few years ago:

Yesterday, my sister was at the house with her youngest boy enjoying the pool. What a better way to beat the heat than read a book while watching your child do his best to pop a pool raft by landing on it from the diving board, you ask? Well I though it was an idyllic setting too, until I got a frantic call from my sister, screaming that there was a pig in the house, a huge pig, that she described with many modifiers ending in "ing".
I left work in the middle of a shoot (on a side note; one knows you live in a rural area when your client doesn't even bat an eye at such an excuse, as if hog invasions are a much more common occurrence than I would have thought, "Sure, hun, sounds like you need to hurry home"). I got home expecting to see "Hogzilla" in an easy chair and was not disappointed. What I found was my next door neighbor's grandchildren had accidently let his prize three hundred pound hog out, and the ensuing chase through the woods came to an end when Wilber went head first through my sliding glass door. The door did not break by the way, even after being bashed off its tracks, landing on a stone floor, and I expect being trampled by said pig. Good glass in that door.
My sister was standing on the couch, still yelling into the phone. She had called everyone she knew, the police or animal control were not on that list. My nephew's favorite thing at my house, besides the pool, is my old, single pump Daisy BB gun, which I am proud to say he was diligently using to defend his mother. Sister got a little miffed at me when I complimented him on his accuracy rather than scold him for shooting a gun in the house, but hey, when there is a hog in the house, rules change. The pig, having found the inside of my house not as inviting as he had hoped had already left through the same hole he entered, the neighbor's grandkids still in the woods, afraid to approach my house.
Today, I'm spending at home, cleaning. No real harm done but it does look like I staged a hobbit mud rastling contest. Every where from hip level down there is a hog sized swipe of mud. I think I'm ready for BBQ and will have an oriental rug, slightly soiled, for offer at my next yard sale.
Pork, the other white meat,
--A

If I were to hazard a guess, it would be Tennessee, Arkansas or Kentucky where this occurred. Been to both so it an educated guess. What comes to mind is a place I stopped for a "rest" break in Tennessee. A wide spot on the side of a hill called "Bucksnort" (I am not kidding - it is I-40).

However, as this place didn't have a swimming pool, and most places in KY & TN don't have pools, it must be Arkansas.

Have you considered renaming the place you live Hog Bottom or Hog Ridge, depending on your terrain?

Here we just have feral hogs and javelinas. I just hate Razorbacks - the U of Arkansas mascot - always gave U. Tx hell when there was a Southwest Conference.

RD - that is 1 big porker!

I love this quote from the article:

Quote
Mike Stone is having sausage made from the rest of the animal. "We'll probably get 500 to 700 pounds," he said.

That's a lot of sausage sarnies!

Jim - May I be so brash as to FOG you?

"Both" refers to 2 options, you put 3. You also missed the "is" between "an" and "educated".

It didn't have a swimming pool so it must be the place you did not mention as NOT having swimming pools? That doesn't make a lot of sense.

I suspect this to be a fake as the kid is resting his left arm on his knee. The 6th grader (12 year old) would need to be really large to be able to do that while kneeling, or even standing, behind a wild hog that size. But I watched the exhumation of "Hogzilla" on the National Geographic Channel and a skull the size of the one they dug up would easily go with a feral pig weighing 800 pounds.

The first two are agreed to. (I was considering two states only, then realized that a third could also be considered. Failed to amend all of the post.) The last, NO!

The sister's son was in the swimming pool. Kentuk' and Tenn. do not have very many pools in peoples back yards. Thus only Arkansas is left in consideration.

I considered Georgia - My sister lives near Trinity, Alabama and Going to Atlanta from there it is easier to go through Chattanooga and then south rather to south Alabama and north.

So, did you get 'er done? The mud cleaning that is.
