An administrator, at the school where I taught, is leaving for another position. When I asked- “would you ever consider returning here, if a position opened?” The response was-

So, I made this little parting gift.

Liberated the idea from an automata site several years ago. It is sort of a trial and error build as there were no plans.

Lew, If I ever see a pig fly I believe that I’ll just throw in the towel. Nice work, it’s cute.

Very nice departing gift and one I am sure he will always have a smile for whenever he looks at it and tells the “story” that goes along with it.

First pig to fly, November 4th, 1909. We celebrate it every year at work.

That being said, great parting gift.
