Someone once said you can put lipstick on a pig...someone famous, I think. The question is, can you still make that little oinker run? As we see here, the answer is definitely yes, and the result brings joy to thousands of fair-goers every summer. Including yours truly.

By the way, I did not make up the name "All Alaskan Racing Pigs"--that IS the outfit's real name!

The Lance? In France

Or perhaps more accurately, at this writing, in the Principality of Monaco, awaiting the start of his 12th Tour.
Go Team Astana!

Incidentally, this photo taken whilst on a (ultimately futile) sweatshirt search* with the aforementioned Fudd. TSG was glad that we could bookend his heat-treated visit to the ole stomping grounds with a couple of forays to more temperate climes.

*TSG travel tip: When you're on vacation,
if an article of clothing catches your eye,
get it right then! If you decide to wait and
come back for it later, it will
no longer be available in your size
or the color that you want.
