Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.

Houdini the Heroic Wild Boar

OMYGOD, there are dedicating that Elton John song "a candle in the wind" to Houdini the Runaway Scottish Pig (they keep interjecting "houdini the runaway pig" into every stanza!) on the radio.

Why Houdini? Because he escaped a truck, being unloaded into an abattoir to be turned into bacon or whatever. Apparently he evaded like 16 slaughterhouse employees, jumped over two 5 foot fences, and through a sliding door and was on the lam for 13 days!

Good piggy! That is quite a feat. He only weighed 130 pounds. Hell, my dog cannot jump over something a foot tall.

Unfortunately on Saturday night Houdini met his end, which will no doubt sadden all the people who were calling for him to be saved from the slaugherhouse.

"No one was hurt" they say. Jeesh. Houdini is dead. But he had a free life for nearly two weeks, and is the hero of mistreated porcine friends everywhere.
