I Haven't Had Much Time to Blog This Week...

Sign this one up for the Packers (or meat packers, at least): A 150-pound pig that wandered onto a Green Bay highway eluded authorities for several hours, even after being Tasered by the police.

As always, we took a quick kolache break at the famed Czech Stop in West, Texas on our way back, and we were quite amused by the sign posted on the door: "AS OF DECEMBER 1, 2006, WE WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT CHECKS."
