Happy as a pig in …

The ever-reliable Chateau Tahbilk Shiraz made a perfect accompaniment to a home-made pork terrine for a beautiful Sunday lunch.

Things porcine have played a big part in the past week, not the least being how many times John Elliott last weekend said “pig’s arse” after being told that West Coast was the better team on the night. I smiled (all right, I laughed) every time I thought about it … well, Carlton’s year is done and dusted.

Pork was also mentioned in dispatches from my son Liam in Vanuatu. He now has a pet pig — affectionately known as Jeffrey — to go with the two dogs, Stu and Angus (Why do you ask, Two Dogs …?), the cat (called Cat) and the no-name python (which he caught in the backyard).
