Oh the poems that result from our conversations, JAN! This one is as pink with perfection as that little oinker. I think the pearls cast before her were accepted, and she wears them beautifully.

LOL LLin, the saying took me back to when I was a nanny in London and the housekeeper of the lady next door had a little pig with a pearl necklace on it which had been given to her by a cheating ex - I'd never heard the saying before and when you mailed me I was inspired to write this and find a cute pic to go with it:-) hugs jan xx
