Literary Pigs

I was sitting aty my desk tryingto think of a post for Pink Saturday, when my collection of Disney Character pens caught my eye. There, surrounded by pink fluff, was a cute Piglet that lights up. A lightbulb when off in me, too, and I decided to write about some pink pigs!
We all know Wilbur, I hope. He's "Some PIg" as the folks at the state fair discover, thanks to his friend Charlotte the spider. Wilbur originally appeared in the book Charlotte's Web by e.B. White. Two movies, a cartoon version and a live action, have been made of the book.This is Babe: The Gallant Pig. You may not remember him. He made his film debut in 1995 and followed it up with Babe: Pig in the City. He hasn't been heard from since. However, before his short film career, Babe was a literary character in the book of the same name by Dick King-Smith.And finally, here's Piglet, Winnie the Pooh's timid little friend. He's been in more movies than Wilbur and Babe combined, but he also started out in the book The House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne.
A big thanks to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturday each week. I hope you'll take some time and visit her and some other participants. There's over 160 this week!

Hi Elizabeth,
Love your pink pigs! Pooh and his friends is one of my favorite characters! I love your blog! I don't see anything wrong with it, so I probably can't be a helper with the blog improvement project. Although I really would like to know how you get those different taps at the top of your blog that takes you to the different places on your blog. I have been trying to figure that out for the longest time!! I really like your buttons and rick rack as your background. It really sits of your page! Have a great weekend!

Oh my goodness I love piggies! LOVE THEM! From the age of 17-27 I collected stuffed pigs. I SLEPT with a stuffed pig named Pudgy well into my married years. He came on my honeymoon with us. Even sat on the plane!

There sure are some fabulous little piggies out there, but what happened to Miss Piggy? She must have been too busy with Kermit to make an appearance. I think he keeps her hopping, hee hee!

Happy Pink Saturday and have a great holiday weekend1

What a l♥vely Pink Saturday blog entry. This is the one day of the week when I get to sit for a couple of hours and soak in my favorite color. Thanks for being a part of that day☺

Wishing you and yours a wonderful family weekend. I will be remembering my father who served in WWII, and praying for all of our military who are in harms' way.

Great pink stuff!! Sorry I have not been here lately...two reasons...my little dog has been very sick..diagnosed with diabetes and doing better and the other is everytime I go to your site it closes down automatically! Today was the first time I could get in for quite some time. It closed down first try and then the second try I was able to get it to come up. Now you think I would have asked my computer mechanic husband for advise??? He was usually not here or sleeping! Have a wonderful memorial day my friend!
