Squeals to the piggy heavens! My sweet Bashful came home Saturday from spending Thanksgiving with my cousin Sammy in Virginia. Let me tell you something my friends, we stayed up so late Saturday night listening to stories and meeting his new “friend”. OMP – can you do a rock whistle?
She came out of the box all giggles and laughs. In fact, she bounced out so fast thank goodness daddy caught her when she was blowing kisses at him. She is a looker! Also when Bashful came out of the box, his little face was full of red lipstick. I wonder what they were doing in the box together for the ride back home to the Hotel Thompson? Snorts with piggy laughter.
But my friends, we had to ask the beauty what her name was. She has been very shy in saying it. We finally got it though – Virginia Blue Eyes. Isn’t that beautiful just like she is? She told us stories of her home in Virginia and that she has always wanted to travel to other parts of the world – especially here in the south where she fits right in. Dad says that she is kind of like Marilyn Monroe – old school movie star. Personally, I’m thinking she has all of the other rocks and mom/dad wrapped around her.
Also in the box was Mrs. Smith and Mr. Fields piggy ornaments. Aren’t they cute as buttons?! We have them in a special spot in our living room now and we LOVE them. Thanks Cousin Sammy for the great gifts and for hosting our little guy Bashful.
And you know what my friends? Bashful got mailed out Sunday to his next destination. It was just a short layover here overnight and then off to the wild blue yonder. Where will he land for Christmas? Who will host him next? Will it be warm or cold? We shall see soon!
