Five Fact Friday –

Happy Friday my friends – we made it another week!!  YAY.  Let’s party!  Let’s eat!  Let’s play!  Let’s cuddle!  I hope you have a fantastic weekend doing what you want to do.  Whatever it is, be the best you can be at it sweet friends!  And here are five more facts about me that maybe you didn’t know :)

  1. One time, we had our neighbor over from next door.  When we have company, it means they are there to see me.  What?  When you have company, aren’t they there to see you?  Snorts – I thought so.  Also this means that I have to show off.  So I was running around the front room and thought I would sneak behind the sofa.  Mommy doesn’t like it when I go behind the sofa so she had placed a pillow at the entrance to block me off.  I wasn’t going to let a little pillow stop me from performing so I tried to jump the pillow to get behind the couch.  It didn’t work out so well.  This darn pot belly got me stuck.  All you can see was my fanny in the air and my feet peddling but not touching anything but air.  Mommy had to safe me.  It was so embarrassing.  Totally.
  2. The first time the pizza guy delivered to the Hotel Thompson, he almost peed on himself.  I answered the door with mom and snorted.  Let’s just say he wasn’t expecting a piggy to answer the door.  Now they know our address as the “pig house” and bring me extra food when mom orders.  It’s kind of fun.  Some of the carriers have had their pictures taken with me.  Hey, it’s a win-win situation.  They get a picture taken with their favorite piggy and I get leftovers :)  Who could ask for anything more?  But I will tell you.  Daddy is jealous – snorts.
  3. The mailman knows me now.  He delivered mail addressed to Bacon Thompson for a long time and finally got the nerve to ask was that really my mom’s sons name.  She said yes and asked if he wanted to meet me when he delivered a package to the door.  We are now on a first name basis.  How many mailmen can say they deliver mail to a real pig every day?
  4. I love football season.  Heck, some could say I love football.  First off, it’s in the fall and the weather is cooler.  Second off, this is dad’s favorite time of the year.  Dad watching football means snacks in front of the television.  Snacks in front of the television means daddy shares with me.  Cause mom has a steadfast rule here at the Hotel Thompson.  “Don’t eat in front of the pig unless you plan on sharing with the pig.”  With that in mind, are you ready for some football?
  5. The one thing that mom absolutely can’t stand that I do?  Did you know that there is one thing?  It’s really bad too.  When I get overly excited – like when she is popping popcorn on the stove for us – I start walking around her feet.  That’s not bad because the purr things do that too.  The bad part is that sometimes I step on her toes.  With my hooves.  That is very painful.  It’s like stepping barefoot on a thousand Lego’s all concentrated on your toes.  Ouch.  Sorry mom – my bad.  I just get excited.  

There you go.  I hope you learned something new about me today.  Have an awesome Friday and weekend my friends.  Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do – snorts!

Shopping Around the World – REMINDER

REMINDER 

Me and my pal Fozzie have scheduled Shopping Around the World for:

Wednesday, August 27, 2014.

Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine.  That way we can keep track of all of the different prices.  It should be interesting to see the differences between.  Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.

This month we are focusing on items that we *have* to have in our lives.

Items to price this month:

  • Water.  Let’s shoot for a price on a 24 pack of water.  This is something that we use every day and can’t live without.  Some people drink it straight from the faucet while others of us buy bottles.  What is the price of a 24 pack of water in your area and what brand?
  • Bath Soap.  Something ‘most’ of us use when we shower – or I hope so anyway snorts. What brand do you get, how many boxes together and how much.  I say how many boxes because I know sometimes they are sold in packages of 1 or 2 – sometimes more.
  • Deodorant.  This is something that has blown mom’s mind lately – the price of deodorant – WOW!  Again, this is something that most of us use every day or should.  Tell us what brand you get and how much.
  • Laundry Detergent.  Another product that is important in our lives while washing our clothes.  What kind do you buy, the price and size.
  • Random Item.  This is something that we are going to start incorporating every month.  This is your choice.  List a random item from your area, what it is and the price.  ALL YOUR CHOICE.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars Wednesday, August 27, 2014!

If you have suggestions for the September issue, please send them to me at baconthompson@gmail.com

I Need *YOU*

I need *YOU* my friends!  

Every October on my blog, I do 31 Days of Spook.  I started that last year and it was so much fun!  Can you imagine, 31 days of scary stories, pictures, places to visit and things that go bump in the night – squeal!  People enjoyed my October blog so much that my buddy Easy suggested I do a monthly edition which I do on the 13th of every month called Bacon’s Tales of Terror.  Just a little something to keep your interests piqued with the unknown.  

This is where I need *YOU*.  I’m working on some stories for October.  Have you ever visited a haunted location?  Do you have strange paranormal happenings in your area or gulp – your house?  Do you have a local Bigfoot with a good story?  Have you been abducted by aliens?

If so, please put on your writer’s cap and become an Investigator for me.  Can you write me a little story of what happened and email it to me at baconthompson@gmail.com   I would so <3 to include it in my 31 Days of Spook in October.  And hey, you might even get a scary little badge for your page :)  Thanks my friends!!

Snoozing – Throw Back Thursday

Nope.  I’m still not too big that I can’t slumber down with mommy for a little Saturday nappy.  This is us taking a little snooze.  We had both fallen asleep on the sofa after a hard day of working and playing.  What can I say?  We make a great team – you think?

Contest Time!

C O N T E S T     T I M E 

YAY!  Shake your tail feathers.  Do a little dance.  Have some fun – it’s contest time!  It’s so exciting.  We’ve been thinking about a contest here at the Hotel Thompson and I think we have a winner!

Every year at the Hotel Thompson the day after Thanksgiving our friend Don Juan comes out to play.  You remember Don Juan don’t you?  He’s our special little Elf on a Shelf that is *always* up to no good in so many different ways.   If you forgot about Don Juan, you can read about that little fellow here .  And we all have to remember when Don Juan filled in for me on a special Dear Bacon edition.  Oh dear piggy heavens.   Thank goodness he only sneaks out once a year.

I think we ALL remember this little surprise he left mommy last year under the Christmas tree.  Rolls piggy eyes.  He was bad.  I mean really bad.  He even liked to sneak in the bathroom and watch mommy take a shower.  He would throw skittles at her.  Unreal that fellow.

This year we thought we would share the fun.  That’s it.  Share the fun.  You can have your very own Evil Little Elf on a Shelf.  A friend of Don Juan has come to visit us here early.  He’s still boxed up because you know those elves don’t have secret powers until the day after Thanksgiving.

Here are the rules for the contest: 

  1. Send me an email at baconthompson@gmail.com why you think you should adopt the boxed up Elf on the Shelf.  Explain what makes your family special and what you have to give.  Words, pictures or videos.  Whatever you think will give you the edge.  (Remember to give your blog address – thanks)

  2. We are taking submissions until August 30th, 2014 at midnight.

  3. We will randomly pick the top three submissions and post them for everyone to vote on in September.

  4. The winner gets their very own boxed up Elf on the Shelf.  Now remember, this is a friend of our Don Juan.  Who knows if he is evil or good.  That’s between the winner and the boxed up Elf on the Shelf.

So put on your thinking hats my friends and get started with the emails.  It should be a blast!
