Found On Vernon Avenue: “Piggy”

When I spied this critter while walking down Vernon Avenue recently I did a double-take. As I learned from the gentlemen hanging out at this community garden this is not at all an uncommon occurrence.

A lot of new people like you who are moving into the neighborhood are fooled by her at first.

Moses (the gentleman at right) said and then he told me I was welcome to come by and hang out at his garden whenever I felt like it. I thanked him for his gracious offer and inquired as to his sow’s name. “Piggy” was his reply.

I mulled this over for a moment and made a recommendation:

Perhaps you should put on a sign on the fence saying “WARNING: Premises patrolled by an attack pig”. Moses and his companion (who I learned was once my neighbor, he lived at Box Street and Manhattan Avenue eight years ago) gave this matter some thought and agreed that this might be worth pursuing.

I have promised Moses to bring a portrait of Piggy to him the next time I am in the neighborhood. If you happen to be around 119 Vernon Avenue why now say hi to Piggy, Moses and his pals? They’re really nice guys.
