Pulled Pork - in memory of Piggly Wiggly

Fret not, Piggly Wiggly is here to stay - however, 37 stores, from Charleston to Savannah are heading for the chopping block this week (full story here)...

...now, to me (currently in transit from Seattle to Savannah), Piggly Wiggly was as much part of the Southern landscape as boiled peanut roadside stands, cheer-wine delivery trucks and kudzu encased barns (Google it).

I'm working on a three part tribute series - 3 large (at least 4 foot) square wooden canvas paintings, honoring "the Pig"...

...here's a digital concept of the first one in the series.

Alas, one piglet was spared the sausage stuffer; store #101, Coligny Plaza,17 Lagoon Rd
, Hilton Head, SC 29928 (though, still an hour's drive from Savannah).
