Way to go Daddy!

I gotta give dad this – he knows exactly what to do sometimes.  For instance, this afternoon.  Today is a special day for mom at the worky place.  It is Administrative Professionals Day.  I know mommy is not dad’s per say ‘secretary’ but she is the keeper of the Hotel Thompson.  So, in a way you can say she is.

So when mom gets home, daddy is going to meet her at the door with two options.  He’s going to tell her to choose one for now and the other for later.  What a gesture.  I can’t tell you which one she is going to pick… you’ll have to guess :)  Or should I say, which one would YOU pick?

Administrative Professionals Day

Today , April 23rd, is a wonderfully special day for not only Bacon’s mom but for all of the Administrative Professionals out there in the world.  Whether you call them secretaries, administrative assistants or my personal favorite Octopuses, they do not get enough praise for what they do.  They are the office keepers, the schedulers, the reminders, the speed typists – the office jugglers.  They not only keep the work load going but they remind their bosses of their personal dates to remember and patch up the boo-boos that happen while at work.  They should be praised daily and reminded of their wonders.

So by all means, don’t forget your office Octopus.  Show them your gratitude.  A small token of a card, a cup of coffee, a gift card, flowers or take them to lunch.  Just don’t forget that special worker.

And to mom and everyone else – Happy Secretary/Administrative/Octopus Day.  We here at the Hotel Thompson wish you all the best today.  You are so worthy – we definitely couldn’t live without you!

Earth Day

April 22nd is EARTH DAY.  Every year, more than 1 billion people in 175 countries will participate in various Earth Day events on this date.  It is the largest civic observance in the world.  The purpose is to raise awareness about important environmental issues.

The first Earth Day took place in 1970.  After witnessing the affects of an oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, US Senator Gaylord Nelson organized a grassroots environmental teach in on college campuses across the country.  Many people believe that this first Earth Day celebration marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement.

Celebrate today – plant a tree, help clean up a beach or park and/or participate in an event near you.  Help to keep this world a better place for everyone!

And a little blast from the past you might remember that deals with Earth Day - Captain Planet and the Planeteers.  Do you remember this show?  It was an American animated environmental program created by Ted Turner, Robert Larkin III and Barbara Pyle.  It came out on September 15, 1990.

The basis of the program was set with Gaia – the spirit of the planet.  She is awakened by drilling which is above her resting chamber.  To control the damage, she sends out five magic rings to youths around the world who will become the Planeteers.

Kwame is from Africa and has the power of Earth with his ring.

Wheeler is from North America and has the power of Fire with his ring.

Linka is from the Soviet Union and has the power of Wind with her ring.

Gi is from Asia and has the power of Water with her ring.

Ma-Ti is from South America and has the power of Heart and telepathy with his ring.

All five can use their rings special powers to call the super hero – Captain Planet for help.

I think today would be the perfect day to check out this old classic of helping the environment!

Dear Sammy – Special Edition

Today, we have a very special Dear Bacon issue – it’s called Dear Sammy. My cousin Sammy is going to fill in for me today and do his own edition. Be sure to go visit Sammy when you get a chance and tell him what a great job he did. Thanks cousin!!

20140414-092942.jpgDear Sammy,

This is what I’m talking about. See, I’m so tough that the big kitties act like I’m not even there. They don’t mess with me, even when I growl at them. Can you control big cats too? Signed Ferocious Kitty

Dear Ferocious Kitty

I think you are obviously handling the big kitty situation at your house just fine. I can tell by the way those big cats are walking right by and NOT looking at you that they are truly intimidated by your presence. They hear your growl of warning and just keep on walking. You are destined for greatness – they already made the “The Lion King” but I’m thinking perhaps you could star in “The Ginger and White King”? Can I be your agent?.

.

20140414-092953.jpgDear Sammy,

There’s nothing to see here. Really. I’m just massaging the dogs face. Yep. That’s it. Really. Signed Face Stomper

Dear Face Stomper

I’m not sure if that dog is so drugged up from whatever operation he had that caused him to have to wear the Cone of Shame that he doesn’t FEEL you there or if you truly are performing some kind of facial massage. But he doesn’t seem to mind either way so I say GO FOR IT. I’ve never been *that* close to a woofie before but ‘more power to ya’ is what I say.

Dear Sammy,
Help. I’ve been mugged. The humans here have such a whacky sense of humor. What am I to do? Signed Puppy Mugged

Dear Puppy Mugged,

If I was in a bar (which I’m not) and I ordered a brewski (which I wouldn’t) and they served me with a mug full of adorable puppy like you, I’d be pretty darn happy (as long as I could train you to meow instead of bark of course). However, I would NOT leave the barmaid a tip. When a guy orders a brewski, he does not expect it to have eyes looking back at him!

.

20140414-093021.jpg Dear Sammy,
Oh dear Lord. I am not a chia dog. The humans found this get up and took advantage of it. Help. Please. Signed Chi-Chia Dog

Dear Chi-Chia Dog

After I finally stopped laughing, I realized the only way to improve on this outfit would be if your humans had put orange sneakers on your feet… the non-clay-colored feet ruin the effect! I think your humans are si-si-si-silly!

Dear Sammy,
Look closer. To the left. Down a bit. There you go. Signed #1 Hide and Go Seek

 

Dear #1 Hide and Go Seek

This is totally CUTE… but the more I thought about it the more I realized why it sort of creeped me out too… why? Because it almost looks like your little head is coming OUT of that bear’s belly (think “Alien”)!!! See what I mean? EEEEEEKKKK!!

Remember friends – send your pictures and questions to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com – thanks so much!

Texts From Mom and Dad

Can you say eeww – I went through mom’s cell phone last night and found this text between her and daddy.  Eeww – hold me.  So sick those two.  No wonder they get into trouble unattended – snorts.  Daddy started it – his texts are in blue…. mom’s are in gray.  Are your humans this weird?  Tell me I’m not the only one – please!

Lake Placid Marathon – Spoilers

Oh this was a GREAT weekend.  Mom and dad decided to have a Lake Placid movie marathon Saturday night.  We didn’t go to bed until we saw all FOUR movies.  Shivers – we got the popcorn and soda out. – it was great.  They even let me stay up with them and watch them all.  Have you seen these movies?  They have a little bit of horror mixed with some good lines of comedy.  They are a MUST see.  Here’s a breakdown:

20140414-101317.jpg Movie #01 -

This is the beginning of the four movies that came out in 1999.  It all starts in Lincoln County, Maine at Black Lake.  What a nice pleasant sounding name huh?  This movie stars Bill Pullman as Jack Wells, Bridget Fonda as Kelly Scott and Betty White as Delores Bickerman.  Strange things are happening on the lake.  Jack and Kelly start to investigate and they witness Delores blind folding a cow and feeding the cow to an enormous crocodile.  After they confront Delores, she admits that the crocodile followed her husband home one day and they fed it.  Years later, the crocodile ‘accidentally’ ate her husband.  But instead of being upset, Delores kept feeding it treating it like it was one of her kids.   And might I add, Delores has some of the best lines in this movie.

Towards the end of the movie, there was actually two crocodiles in the lake.  One does die and in the last seen you see one surviving adult tied to the back of a flat bed truck speeding down the road towards Portland, Maine.

But don’t worry, in the last scenes you also see Delores feeding bread crumbs to several baby crocodiles leading us to believe that the two that were original had mated.  YES!  So this brings us to Movie #02.

Movie #0220140414-101324.jpg

Lake Place 2 came out in 2007.  This movie starred John Schneider as Sheriff Riley and Sarah LaFleur as Emma Warner and Cloris Leachman as Sadie Bickerman (who is Delores’ sister from movie #01).  It picks up from the first one.  Delores has passed away and her sister Sadie is now living in the cabin near the water.  A researcher has disappeared on the lake and the sheriff and Emma (from Wildlife and Game) are investigating.  They get attacked early on by a 20 foot crocodile and here we go all over again.

But this time, there’s a twist.  You see Sadie has been feeding the crocodiles now.  Not just anything but with hormone enhanced meat and this is why they are so large.  And the crocs have mated and everyone finds a large nest of giant eggs.  Oh hog heavens – this one will keep you on the edge of your seat – trust me!

20140414-101333.jpg

Movie #03

Lake Placid 3 came out in 2010.  It still takes place on Black Lake in Maine.  At this time Sadie Bickerman has passed away.  Her son, Nathan, (played by Colin Ferguson) along with his wife Susan and their little boy Connor are at the cabin packing things up for sale.  Conner starts chasing a lizard towards the lake where he sees baby crocodiles.  Conner keeps the babies a secret and refers to them as ‘his pets’.  He starts feeding them and they start growing really fast.

This movie also brings Reba (played by Yancy Butler) to the screen.  I have to say that Reba really makes the movie.  She is a poacher that doesn’t really follow the rules of the law.  AND she has a mouth on her – let me tell you she can feel UP the swear jar here at the Hotel Thompson during this movie – snorts.

All I can say is towards the end of the movie, don’t move.  Wait for it and you’ll see what I mean.  Then this brings us to Movie #04.

20140414-101340.jpg

Movie #04

Lake Placid: The Final Chapter came out in 2012.  This brings back our friend Reba who was a poacher in Movie #03 but now is working as an EPA Agent.  Not because she had a change of heart but rather it’s part of her judgement from being a poacher in movie #03 – snorts.  The people in the town thought it would be a wonderful thing to build an electric fence around Black Lake and turn the lake into a crocodile sanctuary.  Sounds all nice huh?  NOT!

One night the fence gets left open and you know a field trip of kids are on the way to the other lake.  But the driver is checking out his cell phone instead of watching the road and goes through the gate to Black Lake.  So here we go – the kids are at the wrong lake and you know the crocodiles are going to come out and play – and they do!

Don’t let “The Final Chapter” fool you.  Stay to the end again.  I guess they can make a Lake Placid – Really The Final Chapter if they want to.  Snorts – hope you check these movies out.  They are really good.  And I have to admit – me and mommy jumped maybe a half of a dozen times while watching these Saturday night.  These are probably what you call b-rated movies that have played on the SyFy channel numerous times.  It doesn’t matter – they were great to watch.

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER my dear friends

((HOGS AND KISSES)) it’s a wonderful and joyous day!

I love Easter.  I love everything about it.  I love the fun.  I love the excitement.  I love the actual meaning of Easter.  I love it all!

Mom makes is so special for all of us.  Mom gave the purr things their little basket.  She was going to take a picture of it but too late – they got to it.  There was little pieces of grass everywhere from their straw basket.  They got cat treats, a bag of Iams – their favorite and a couple of play mice.  They were happy – more so for the basket and grass at first – snorts.  Silly purr things.

Dad loves his Angry Birds games so this year mom tried to decorate the eggs in their colors.  Didn’t turn out as good as last year but dad absolutely loved them.  Me, of course I favored the piggy one.  What more I favored was what was inside of the egg. Snorts – I do love my food.

And me?  You asked what did the Easter Bunny bring me?  ALL kinds of goodies.

20130312-101826.jpg

I got a yearly pot full of my special treats! I noticed last week that my big bucket was MIA (missing in action) here at the Hotel Thompson.  That Easter Bunny is sneaky.  He must have come in last week and took my bucket to fill up with all of these goodies.

Look in that bucket -

  • Animal crackers – yes the convenient size – snort.
  • Yellow squash and eggplant.   I love it chopped up and raw.
  • Carrots – look at the size of those master pieces!
  • Oranges and apples.
  • And my training raisins were in the bottom of the bucket.  I only get raisins when mom is teaching me new tricks.  I guess she’s up to training again.

YUMMY – this pig struck the gold mine!   I think personally the Easter Bunny likes me the best, don’t you?  But I won’t tell anyone if you don’t.

And we can’t forget about  rock clan – Benedict, Manny, Virginia, Princess Coralena and Rockelle.  Bashful is with his host family so I’m sure he won’t get left out.  But here at the Hotel Thompson, the Easter Bunny brought the rock clan what else but Rock Candy!

Everyone is having a blast on this special day.  I hope you and yours also have a spectacular Easter my friends!

Bacon and friends at the Hotel Thompson :)
