    Well all went well................ A good friend of mine asked me to do a pig pickin for his sons graduation and his parents were comeing to visit for the second time in 20 yrs...........The weather co-operated but it got hot and I was one tired pig at the end of the day....... Had a great time even though I didnt get to spend time mingeling.......... Love to see happy people with their bellies full....
