A Topanga carpenter, whos been around the block a time or two, comes clean: hes the flying pig sculptor. You know, the pink one thats been flying above the Boulevard for the past 10 years and you always wondered how it got there? Who made it? Did you know she also has a few-hundred-pound twin whos been flying over Box Canyon for five years? And the other day, catching the holiday spirit, he got all dressed up for the Fourth of July. As a special bonus (instead of fireworks), this patriotic pig comes with his own chemtrails. In prime moments, if youre lucky, and driving up Box Canyon Road, youll see him blowing clouds of smoke out of his pug-nosed snout and well...er other places. Whos this mystery artist with a comic twist in our midst? Chris Budzin, originally from Indiana, has been a Topanga resident for 20 years and a loyal and capable builder to many of his neighbors. He sees to it pigs really do fly all over and so can you.!
