This afternoon, Janice of Hearts on Noses potbellied pig sanctuary sent my friend Ellen and I this link, a newstory about a pig named Cinderella who was terrified of mud and so the owners had boots made especially for her and now she is a happy little piggy:

I chuckle over it, and go about my business which included meeting up with Janice to look at some property (more about that later), and when I came home I find THIS email........
