I'm sure I've seen these two at Prime Minister's Question Time


Comment by Maureen on 30th June 2017 at 09:00
A friend very kindly sent me a photo of one of their recent arrivals..a little piglet,he/she was so cute.


Comment by Veronica on 30th June 2017 at 09:08
They could be sniffing for truffles!


Comment by dirty harry on 30th June 2017 at 09:19
best back bacon is what i see.where abouts in the woods is this ?


Comment by Maureen on 30th June 2017 at 10:39
DH you are so predictable..trying to sound macho..give up ,it isn't working.


Comment by irene roberts on 30th June 2017 at 11:30
They are gorgeous! I agree with Maureen on dh. My daughter would have given them names by now if she still lived in Wigan!


Comment by Maureen on 30th June 2017 at 14:12
Let's all have a guess..Harriet,Jessica and Charlotte..just a bit of fun.
I hope you don't mind David and thank you.


Comment by Veronica on 30th June 2017 at 14:47
.i'll go for Polly ,Pippa and Primrose - beats Apple , Bluebell and Harper Seven anyway!


Comment by Cyril on 30th June 2017 at 14:58
dirty harry, a friend was telling me the other day that they had bought some bacon from the butchers shop in The Stables, and said it was the tastiest bacon that they had tasted in some years, so if you want some good back bacon try up there.


Comment by Derek Platt on 30th June 2017 at 16:55
So DTease if you are sure you have seen them at Prime Minister's Question time. Tell me which one was the prime minister


Comment by irene roberts on 30th June 2017 at 18:35
Maureen and Veronica, our Ashley would be proud of you! She gives everything a name. I'm sure David won't mind you giving the pigs names. Photo-a-day has often brought complete strangers together, having a bit of fun, and in the world we live in, that's no bad thing. Although we've got in bother in the past for it, haven't we, Maureen?!


Comment by Veronica on 30th June 2017 at 18:52
There's nothing wrong with a bit of light hearted humour...I tend to give names to all and sundry it must be a Scholes trait Irene!!!
Mind you it did get me in trouble sometimes!


Comment by Maureen on 30th June 2017 at 18:59
Irene, yes we have..mainly having chit chats with Giovannii (Johnny)..but it's harmless fun and if the person that put the photo on did mind he didn't say..if we were told off about it we no doubt would take heed and stop..but isn't it nice when we can all have a little natter ..but we never take the photographer for granted..we are very grateful to every one of them.


Comment by Dave on 30th June 2017 at 19:09
I see no reason whatsoever , after the enthusiasm shown, that the above cannot
be now and forever more ,been known as Maureen, Irene and Veronica . Any objections?


Comment by Allan on 30th June 2017 at 19:16
What about calling them Chops , Bacon and Ham ?


Comment by Maureen on 30th June 2017 at 19:37
Dave,what a brilliant idea.


Comment by Veronica on 30th June 2017 at 19:38
No objections whatsoever! Good idea!


Comment by DTease on 30th June 2017 at 19:44
Derek, the one at the back hiding it's face with embarrassment.


Comment by Veronica on 30th June 2017 at 20:23
Dave having said I've no objections .to the pigs ......I'd still prefer it being a rose! :o))


Comment by irene roberts on 30th June 2017 at 21:12
Wonderful, Dave! And they are so gorgeous, as are WE! I think the one with the dimples is Veronica, (see "Album")....thankyou for taking this in such good humour. As Maureen and I know to our cost, not everyone sees things that way. Tuck in, Ladies! xx.


Comment by Veronica on 30th June 2017 at 22:08
The dimples are on the end of the noses Irene!!! Really deep too!


Comment by Ken R on 1st July 2017 at 02:22
Are they saddlebacks or a cross breed?
