Flying Pig


"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."

~Lewis Carol~

An unusual weather vane, Denise! Someone has a sense of humour or was it on the roof of a farm where pigs are raised? Have a good week!

A flying pig does seem odd, but then it really is an attention getter because it's not a rooster.

He's a beautiful weather vane and I love Lewis Carrol poems....if that pig were here right now he'd be spinning...we are in a bit of a windstorm.

One can't help but like Carroll poems.
