...and this little Piggy...

Well according to the Chinese Zodiac I'm a Pig. Never mind how polite Blogger noted that I was a Boar (not a bore people) when I checked that zodiac box in the whatchamacallit. Let's face it, a Pig is a Pig there are no two ways about it. Believe it or not, I love being me and I love being a Pig! Which kind of explains why I collect some of the little dudes.




Me.....at play!


Me....tyin' on the old feed bag!


Me....goin' gaga! (Probably the early '80's)




Me....ahem,uh do I need to spell it out people!

If you care to read, this is what they say about me...........ahem, I mean Pigs. Let me know if you think they nailed it!


Personality
Occupying the last position in the Chinese Zodiac, the 12th, the Pig symbolizes such character traits as diligence, compassion, and generosity. Pigs enjoy life and because they are entertaining, others enjoy their company. Pigs are giving souls and reap much enjoyment when they’re helping others, but sometimes they give too much. Honesty is what Pigs give and it’s what they expect to receive in return.

Pigs seek peace and will do what is necessary to maintain it. This trait, while admirable, sometimes makes it easy for others to take advantage of Pigs. Pigs are always doing for others, helping anyway they can, but rarely will they ask others for help. This can overwhelm and stress them, but Pigs don’t mind.

When it comes to money, Pigs enjoy spending more than saving. They gravitate towards name brand items. Thriftiness happens only occasionally, but Pigs do know how to find great deals.
Health
Always seeking fun, Pigs often indulge more than they should. Excessive eating, drinking and smoking can cause sickness. Pigs aren’t very active and, combined with their excessive behaviors, cause them to gain weight. Pigs are social and being alone makes them unhappy. Pigs would benefit from adopting a healthier lifestyle.
Career
Pigs enjoy helping at work and can always be counted on. They enjoy opportunities that allow them to express their creativity. Pigs are detail-oriented, a trait admired by management. Pigs aren’t afraid to take on responsibility. Some good career choices for Pigs include: entertainer, caterer, doctor, veterinarian, or interior decorator. They’d do well in retail or hospitality.
Relationships
Supportive and giving, Pigs make great partners. They’re affectionate and sexual and prefer staying home to going out. They enjoy what they have, especially their home and family. Once they find the right partner, they’re typically committed for the long-term.
Pigs and the 5 elements
Metal Pigs – Years 1911 and 1971
Metal Pigs have a tough exterior, and this strength can be seen in all areas of life. They work diligently and love with all they have. They’re outspoken and trust others right away.
Water Pigs – Years 1923 and 1983
Water Pigs are trustworthy almost to a fault. Others can easily influence Water Pigs, but Water Pigs are also good at influencing others to get what they want. They’re extremely social and enjoy having a good time.
Wood Pigs – Years 1935 and 1995
Wood Pigs are the most helpful and are always seeking ways to work with others. In fact, they’ll help others even when others say help isn’t necessary. Big hearts and strong minds characterize Wood Pigs.
Fire Pigs – Years 1947 and 2007
The fire in Fire Pigs comes through in everything they do. They’re gutless risk-takers and once they put their minds to something, it’s all or nothing. That applies to work, romance and goals. Fire Pigs make excellent leaders and bosses.
Earth Pigs – Years 1959 and 2015
Earth Pigs are most content at home, with family. They never approach a task without first formulating a plan. Earth Pigs are better at being led than being a leader.
Compatibility
Pigs are most compatible with a Rabbit or Goat and incompatible with the Monkey and Snake.

I love the snap of you dancing in the early 80's!!! My friends had a few snaps of me dancing (I think that was what I was doing????) from the 80's and I made them thrwo them all away....what were we thinking, lol).
Hey I'm a pig as well.......I always seek peace at all times, am always doing for others, and sometimes perhaps get taken advantage of. Yet, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Have a day filled with love, joy and laughter my friend and.......

As an astrologer I can say that Pigs are my favourite people in the Chinese zodiac. I have oodles of Pig friends, as well as a Piggy mother, and I've never yet met a Pig I didn't like. :-)
