Pigs

I was listening to Radio 4 the other day - the short story - and I heard this most wonderful tale about some pigs - maybe some of you heard it. My Animals and Other Family

One of the descriptions the writer had related was that she lived on a farm and had a couple of pigs given

They were her pride and joy and she described them as

"looking like ancient aunts and uncles rolling around in a field at a nudist camp"

I really loved that!!  It was so vivid I wish I could write in that way.

Hi Lin

Do you remember Harry Harrison, a great science fiction writer of the sixties and seventies. One of his best short stories was 'A man's best friend is his pig.'

I've used a similar theme for one of my short stories. If I can find it I'll put it up for review.
