Cost of the War in Iraq
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.

Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment.

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.
2 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
