    How good are your eyes?

    With apologies to all my NC neighbors & friends, had to share...While riding Wednesday evening on Shears Rd near Mooresville, went by this scene once, had to hurry back to make sure of what I was seeing.
    Identify the picture:
    Is it :
    A) The Dog
    B) Dinner
    C) The lawnmower
    D) A pig
    E) All of the above
    ???

    How good are my eyes? I have reffed college football, basketball, and baseball. When a coach asks me about a call and questions my eyesight, I say to him, "You know, the sun is 93,000,000 miles away. I can see that just fine; the play at second base was about 93,000,000 miles closer, too."
    We don't stop playing because we get old; we get old because we stop playing.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    Hey that's weird. I saw a pig yesterday but it was the normal "beige" kind and a women at her front door was apparently coaxing it in to her house from the front side walk.

    It was in a semi-rural area, but a suburban style home. Strange deal. NO doubt -normal pig -turned pet. About 30 lbs now.

    Pot belly pigs reportedly make good pets. Pigs are very intelligent and trainable. On the other hand, the wild feral hogs we have here in Louisiana are a highly destructive, invasive species. They're also not something to be faced without a suitable firearm.

    Looigi, Seems once or twice a year someone around here is injured hunting ferral hogs (open season). Javalina can be more aggressive, but taste wonderful and I use a revolver with them.

    Got a local guy who regularly takes 2 pot bellys to the park near my house to graze and poop. While on my way to Orlando last week I saw a black pig grazing on the side of the road. Don't know if it was an exscapee or feral.

    It makes you wonder if you're seeing things ? I was coming back from the grocery store to the cottage a couple of summers ago when I saw what looked like a big black Newfie dog sitting by the side of the road by a mailbox about 200 yards down the road. I thought "those people don't even own a dog".

    As I got closer, the "dog" turned out to be a young black bear. Two seconds later he jumped into the ditch and took off into the bush.
