Fireworks in a Plastic Pig

This is the man I spent 12 years of my life with. Yup. You know his mama is proud, too.

So, Greg decided it would be fun to put some fireworks inside a plastic pig bank and then the pig would be all multi colored when they went off.

Of course, he intended to capture this for posterity. Things didn't go quite as planned.

When he came in and asked if I wanted to come outside and "put a ground bloom inside a pig" I told him that was something no one had ever asked me before.

The first video is of the pig. The second video is of Greg explaining the pig.

This is really the "Making of" and "Director's Cut" of the Fireworks in a Pig. See Greg's account of the event, and close up footage of the pig, at
Check for the blog, art, and more. Friend me on Facebook.

Thanks, Jane. Greg provides constant amusement, what can I say? You can hear the fireworks going off in the background other places, but I'm guessing there's a good chance none of those people were putting them into a plastic pig.

Enjoyed seeing the "behind the scenes" work that goes into Greg's posts (visiting from a link on his site). You have to love people who do their own thing! :-)

BTW - I signed up for KIVA after checking out the link on your site - THANKS!

Welcome, Lisa! So glad you popped over for the "director's cut" of Fireworks in a Plastic Pig! Greg is someone who has a real zest for life and it's inspiring to be around.

So glad you found I absolutely love the concept of helping people at the grassroots level. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Thanks so much for coming by and also for commenting.
