Listen, Honey, They're Oinking Our Song

It was 23 years ago today that I married my best friend. I painted this for him at lunch today. I'm not sure how it started, or why it stuck around, but hogs became our "thing" (so some couples have pink roses, we have large pink barnyard animals). But I'm glad. I mean, what says true love better than the call of "Sooooo-ey!"?
