Happy Pig day

USA | Friday, 25 November 2011 | Views [394]

Thanksgiving Day. Sent an email to the kids wishing them a happy holiday. Missing them. Haven't actually spent the day with them in a long time. Devin in Minnesota and Nick and Janelle spend the day with her family. Still, nostalgia for being with family. We have had an exciting start to the day. Up early to help Dennis make food. Brought some garbage out and I see 7 dogs and 3 guys in camo run across the back yard - the last guy is carrying a dead wild pig on his back! I yell for Dennis and I run in to get my camera. The guy carrying the pig stops and poses for a picture. The other guys ae trying to get the dogs over the fence. Dennis yells that it is OK and that he will unlock the gate. The dogs, some big, scary-looking things with protective gear on, never look at us, they are all eyes on their human. Dennis chats with the guys and finds out that they have another pig in the truck that arrives to pick them up. Each pig is at about 250 pounds! Crazy. It was quite a rush when I first saw them running through the yard, Men in camo and big dogs! Yikes! They promised to bring Dennis some smoked pork. Nice. Anything can happen in Puna. Dennis lives in teh Puna District of the island, and they call people who live here Punatics. There are a lot of 'characters' that live around here. Happy Turkey (pig) Day from Puna!
