Miss Liberty entertains a Senator

Miss Liberty apologizes for being behind on her blogging. She has had a very busy summer and would like to share some memories of the highlights of the last few months:

Miss Liberty, best-selling author of 'The Big Squeal' on, entertained an Illinois State Senator on the Fourth of July!

Illinois State Senator Andy Manar of Bunker Hill strolled over to Liberty's yard after marching in Taylorville's patriotic parade.

Sen. Manar, his three children and a niece, were welcomed by Krista Alexander Bowers, the 1983 Christian County Fair Queen, who was visiting from California.

Formerly a starving orphan piglet, Miss Liberty found a home with Krista's parents, Hal and Carol Alexander.

Miss Liberty served her signature dish -- Pigs in the Blanket (beef of course).

Carol Alexander, Liberty's "as told to author," is pictured on the terrace with Sen. Andy Manar, his children and a niece.

Krista Alexander Bowers, a former Miss Christian County Fair, welcomed the Senator to Miss Liberty's "pignic."

At the 2014 Assumption Fest, Illinois State Sen. Andy Manar, right, said he keeps a copy of "The Big Squeal' on his office desk. The inspiring story of a homeless pig and Abraham Lincoln celebrates America's heartland. At left are Andy's friends Nolan Drea and his father Mike.

A little pig-headed, Miss Liberty declined to perform her favorite trick until after the Senator and his guests departed! Even apples placed atop the igloo as an incentive, did not persuade Miss Liberty.
