From the author of “Almost, Maine” comes a series of funny, sweet and sad love stories that dare to ask, “once you find love, what the heck do you do with it, and how do you make it last?” From a bride who wears isotoners to keep her ‘cold feet’ warm, to a man who loses his hearing every time the words “I love you” are spoken, this perfect show for imperfect lovers is a delightfully unromantic comedy, for the romantic in all of us.

Each spring, Barb Loken’s dad would get a special permit from the city of Minneapolis so he could bring home a small piglet. Then for the next six weeks, he would carry the pig around to different elementary schools and teach children about farm animals. He loved to show off the intelligence of the pig, which could hit several different locks with its snout in order to open its feed box. At this point, a flag would snap up that proclaimed, HOGS ARE BEAUTIFUL!
