One Big Pig.



We never did get an official total on Arnold's weight, but we estimated somewhere between 350 and 400 pounds. Man, that is one big-ass pig. I've never seen one like that in person.

I mentioned below that Christine and I were heading to the Big Sky Ranch Woofstock Fundraiser. Nice little idea from Mrs THIT. We didn't bring the mascot, but we probably could have. Several people brought their dogs.

And damned if there wasn't wrestling after all! I thought it'd be a fake ring set up for kids to mess around in, or one of those deals where you dress up as a sumo wrestler and bump around with other people, but no! It was the good folks of Rage Wrestling Entertainment come to donate a little time to the cause! Good for them.

The gentleman running this whole thing appears to be doing an outstanding job. The animals seem clean and happy despite carrying around some stories of cruelty that would probably make your toes curl. We'll keep an ear to the ground for it next year as well.

Oh, and another thing! Remember how I mentioned below that I added my name to the list of people hoping to get a flag flown from the Peace Tower?



Well, I got a written response today! It includes the following:
Due to the large number of requests we receive, there is currently a long waiting list for Peace Tower flags. It make take approximately 17 years before we are able to honour your request.
Oh.

That's okay, I'll wait. Can someone remind me in 2023?

Considering how often you post the same bullshit, I guess you must have bookmarked!
