T. GAMBLE: Some pig's hogging all the ice cream

OPINION: Pot-bellied pig struggles with dog days and ramps

Some Pig lived his first year in my backyard with access to the sun porch when too hot or too cold. But, alas, the good times came to an end, precipitated mainly by the fact he weighs about 250 pounds. Whoever first coined the phrase “greedy as a pig” sure knew what he was talking about.

T. GAMBLE: When the time is right to hop away

OPINION: Jim the Toad had been with us for almost two years

For some time, I impressed upon the Hurricane the need to set Jim free. You know, let him live in the wild the way God intended for a toad to live. Not to mention I was darn tired of going to the feed store every three days so that Jim the toad could make the Guinness Book of World’s Records as the fattest reptile ever.

And, each day now for over 4,000 days, he did no such thing. … It would not be the way this story ends. She’d already heard the ending.

OPINION: Pilot may have future in Congress

I might go to jail protesting because my kid is in jail, or the government took my land, or unfair taxes, or discrimination against gay, transsexual, Scientology, single mothers, but it will be over more than campaign finance reform laws.
