Hi Jan, I have used my hubby's account to contribute to this cause. My blog is Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe. Liberte' is our entry to name the pig. Hope you reach your goal.

Love John's blog!

I'll be back Janet, going to put my thinking cap on this one. All those names are very cute so far. For some reason all that came to mind when I saw her was "Priscilla", don't know why.

Good luck with this latest fund raiser and thanks so much for stopping by with your birthday greetings :)

Texan said...

Oh good it went through :O)... Some very creative names so far! LOL

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Sent the PAYPAL fees for two tries, MAYBEL or HYACINTH.
Good luck with your fundraiser, and hope the weather cooperates.
