Two birds with one stone I'm Faith Hill....FFA rescue pig. I'm cooling off and at the same time getting a skin treatment. Don't laugh...women used to pay for mud packs. It softens my skin and keeps the insects off of me. See how smart pigs are?'s all free. My close friend Bevo was on the TV but I missed it...I was still in the spa. Come one...come all...oh happy day...I'll share.

My Dog floating on a raft at the lake This is my dog, Diablo. He loves the lake but really would rather ride in the float than swim. Yes, he is very rotten but loved so much.
