The Good, Good Pig

I am reading a charming book titled "The Good, Good Pig" by Sy Montgomery. It's a true account of a woman who loves animals almost more than she loves people, and who raises a pig from birth to -- well, at this point he's 10 years old and weighs about 700 pounds. I highly recommend this book if you want a sweet, pleasant read.

Next up for me is "The Heroin Diaries" by Nikki Sixx, formerly of Motley Crue. Austin really wanted to read it, and although it looked very dark (it's about addiction and redemption), I told him he could read it, and then I wanted to read it. Well, Austin's done. Tim intercepted it and finished. So now it's my turn. I have a feeling I'm going to need a little "Good, Good Pig" to balance this one out.

Both books sound good. Haven't had time to read much myself lately and I miss it.

Um, I'd say you had a VERY busy week. My goodness, how'd you get ALL that done AND ordered your pretty pink boxing gloves too!??!!
