Friday Flash 55 - Ohhhh, That Feels Good - September 14, 2012





We people of the human race,
Complain and carry on,
In keeping up with the Joneses,
Soon our money's gone.

At least we have two hands,
To scratch if we should itch,
Just think of this fat piggy,
When her skin begins to twitch!

 Pretty smart, I must say,
A "scratching" post saved the day!

I am taking part in Friday Flash 55.
Join MrKnowItAll & the gang to
have some fun.


As I headed to the market in Jaipur, I came upon a pig entourage. 
Mama and three babies.  Babies had to wait while Mama
scratched her neck, then turned around and scratched
her backside.

    1. Thank you dear Galen. I will certainly miss India but the wine here is deplorable and I will spend the whole time at home fortifying myself with good CA vintages.

  4. I've heard that pigs are smart...some people keep them as pets..well, maybe not in India. I'm glad mama found something to scratch her itch!

    1. It's amazing here. You see pigs running loose, camels pulling carts & cows EVERYWHERE, sometimes in the middle of busy streets, stopping traffic.

    1. I see pigs all over the place, foraging in piles of garbage put out on the street. I don't know if anyone owns them or not.

    1. Shakira - it is lovely to see you. My India trip, this time, ends 16 Nov, after a 5 month stay in Jaipur. I'll be busily saving for air fare to return.
