SO...we really wanted to do a lighthouse story cos we saw that blog going around, and even though the closest thing we have ever seen that would/could resemble a lighthouse is this.............
I guess then we will tell you what happened to our mom on her way to work this morning.
So she is driving along on Hwy. 1 which is a pretty busy highway in the morning. Peoples are getting to work, semis are going to the interstate, farmers are going to the local gas station for coffee, or maybe a porta-potty. We are not really sure.
As mom is coming across the bridge she see's a truck alongside the road with their blinkers on. At first, she thought maybe they were on their phone but then she saw a little tiny pig run out in her lane of traffic. Luckily she was the only person on the road for that very moment, and she hurried and pulled off the side of the highway.
The guy said the little pig was going to get hurt running along the highway and he was trying to catch him. We think he fell out of his farmers truck cos he had a yellow ear tag. NO ONE ELSE WAS STOPPING TO HELP so Mom just stood in the middle of the highway and they were sorta forced to stop.
We don't know if this was illegal but probably the semi drivers were getting ready to call our local sheriff just to get mom off the highway. Finally, the electric guys drive up and pull off and one of them gets out to help. They corner that slippery little pig on the bridge and grab him up so he is safe.
Mom gets out of the middle of the road, people wave at her, people flip her off, but Mom is happy.
Hopefully that little pig goes to a really nice farm, where they will take care of him the rest of his long long life.
So thats our Wednesday story about mom and the pig. We always thought mom would rescue a Golden not a pig. You never know.
