[FJ55] Pig en route!....:))

At exactly 13:45 this afternoon, a slighty sad Pig left town.
Sad, because it had been treated relatively well in temporarily ownership over 
the last 3 years, protected against the harshest of elements, emotionally

when and where....and it could only pray that it would not end up even further 
as a parts donor....but no, that was not to be its fate)

Pig ahoy, sailing away for a new shore!
