Pig Pickin’ 2008

Saturday, was Kathleen and Charlie’s annual Pig Pickin’ in Craig County, Virginia. I’ve attended this event a few times over the years– the first being 1998…ten years ago! Time flies!

A lot of my immediate friends who were with me in 1998 have moved away to different locales. For example, Ryan S moved to Maryland. Brian and Jodi are in North Carolina. But looking at the 1998 pictures, I see do someone who made both 1998 and 2008.

This event has always been dog friendly, but this year was the very first time I contributed to the pack. Jimmie accompanied me! I was pleased with his attendence. With a few infractions involving interest in the garbage or some of the dead opossums (a staple), he was well behaved. Poor Henry’s back foot is still weak, so I felt it was best to keep him away from all the other dogs and excitement.

Most of the time, Jimmie just chilled around me (those are my feet)

Last year, I got a lot of photos of the pig chopping process. This year, I went ahead and took a short video:

The food has consistently stayed delicious for a decade now and the party is always a fun time. I’ll part with a few more pictures:

I thought Charlie looked especially manly holding his Kahlua White Russian


A brief rainstorm (it did not stop the party)

Plenty of more pictures from the Pig Pickin’ 2008 are up on my Flickr site.

    So I’m guessing a “Pig Pickin’ ” is a good ole Pork BBQ? You grab dinner, cut it, cook, and eat it? Or is there something else I am oblivious too? I am from Georgia ya know… I could miss sumpin’… heheheheheheh
