BAR-B-Q

This will be our last installment in this series. A pig pointing south. Allow me to digress. There is a wonderful movie, THE LION IN WINTER, if you have never seen it, you must. In the movie, Eleanor of Aquitaine and King Henry II are arguing. Henry says something to the effect, "When pigs have wings," (or something like that). Eleanor retorts with, "Then there will be pork in the treetops come morning." That is what I think of when I look at this vain. A classic line, one heck of a pig!

  1. Let's see...a pig pointing south from Florida...to Cuba, where they make those great pulled pork sandwiches? I hope this little piggie doesn't go to market.

  2. No orange sauce for this one, I'd say cider.

  3. Flying pigs remind me of the Pink Floyd's album 'Animals'...

  9. Too funny! I can't decide now whether I like the pig or the heron better.

    What's up for next week's series?

  11. Well, my friend, this has been a great series...I'm still amazed at how you found all these things. One has to wonder, though, why someone would put a pig on a weather vane!

  14. I can post here again! Yay! I love this series and I love A Lion In Winter. Pigs flying is much more cultured than whatever that saying is about monkeys flying out...

  15. Oh, and I gave you an award if you haven't seen it. I'm conflicted about them myself so if you decide not to accept, I understand (sobbing, shoulders shuddering). I really do (not).

  21. "The time has come," the Walrus said,
    "To talk of many things:
    Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
    Of cabbages--and kings--
    And why the sea is boiling hot--
    And whether pigs have wings."


    The Walrus and The Carpenter
    Lewis Carroll
    (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

  22. not heard that line "pigs in the treetops" before (am NOT a film buff) but I do like it - perhaps not as much as a bacon buttie (that's a sandwich). Flying pigs are what we call police helcopters around here.

  23. God, I love every single word in that play. "There's no sense asking if the air is good if there's nothing else to breathe."

  24. I really like this one. But I think f it as the pig who got free and now runs with the winds.

  25. Does a Congresscritter live there? Congress is all about pork...

  26. What a cool collection! And yes, I've seen the Lion in Winter! :-)

  27. I haven't seen that movie in years... I love the piggie weather vane though!

  28. The dialog in that movie was some of the best I've ever heard. It's always nice to be reminded. I forgot about the pigs in treetops!
