Shopping Around the World

My friend Fozzie and I have scheduled a group posting today of Shopping Around the World.   We thought it would be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over.Here are our prices for the following from our area – Georgia USA:

.

  • Popcorn – We have a tendency to go old school here at the Hotel Thompson.  Mom buys the kernels in a bag to pop old fashion wise on the stove.  Trust me – it’s well worth the extra steps.  A 16 ounce bag of popcorn she can get on sale for $1.50 – it makes about 10-12 batches of corn for this oinker.  And trust me – I <3 my popcorn.
  • Beer/Wine – Mommy is very picky on her wine.  She only buys Francis Ford Coppola wines.  Don’t ask me why cause I don’t know cause she won’t give me a taste of the grape – snorts.  Daddy says it costs about $20.00 or more for a bottle.  Thank goodness mommy doesn’t drink that much – I mean hey that cuts into my popcorn right?  PLOL
  • Chocolates – Mom’s favorite chocolates are Dove.  You know the ones that you unwrap and they have a secret little message on the wrapper.  She buys a 16 ounces bag usually for around $4.00.
  • Ice Cream –  Mom has been hooked on Breyers  Gelato these days.  Her favorite – Vanilla caramel.  Sometimes and not very often she can get a tub (28.5 ounces) for $4.00.  I have to admit mommy gave me a taste the last time she had some of this.  It was delicious.  I think I squealed it was so good!
  • Random Item of your choice – Something that comes out only during this time that my mommy absolutely loves is the white chocolate covered Oreo’s.  Delish… well so says mom and dad.  I have still yet to get one – hint hint mommy dearest.

If you have some items that you want to get on the list, email me my friends.

Hope you had fun!!

My Sweet Nylablue

 In Honor of My Sweet Nylablue

  You may be gone but you are not forgotten.  I close my eyes and smile.  I dream of you running without pain or illness through the daisies chasing butterflies and looking so beautiful.  When I’m silent and still in my toddler bed with my Egyptian cotton sheet around me, I can almost hear your purrs in my ear – just like old times.  You were my first kitty girlfriend – my sweet purr thing – my snugglebug and you always will be the love of my life <3  

I think of you now watching over all of us that are still here.  You touched my life in so many ways.  You showed us how to keep fighting for life and things you wanted.  You showed us love beyond what we could ever imagine.  I was privileged to have you in my life – your love was an added bonus that I will *NEVER* forget.  You will always be part of my heart.  

I pray for your mom and send her loads of hogs and snout kisses.  May she find some peace and remember that we all are here for her in her time of need.  

We love you Sherri-Ellen!

Elf on the Shelf – OH NO!

Oh my friends.  I think I’m scared.  I think I may be in trouble.  It’s almost *that* time of the year again. You know the time.  *That* time when Don Juan comes out – shivers and squeals.  Wait a minute.  You’re looking confused.  You don’t know who Don Juan is?  You might be lucky that you don’t know.  Don Juan is the name of my Elf on the Shelf here at the Hotel Thompson.  But Don Juan – he’s “special”.  I mean really “special”.  You see, Don Juan is not made of the same cloth as all of these other elves that come out for the holidays.  Don Juan is evil – pure and simple.

You see these little Elf on the Shelves are a Christmas tradition.  In theory, they watch over the household and report back to the North Pole every night.  Once at the North Pole, they inform Santa of all of the happenings at their house.  By morning, the return back to the house in different positions so you know they’ve been to the North Pole.

But Don Juan. Shakes piggy head and shivers.  Don Juan has his own agenda.  He comes out and scares everyone here at the Hotel Thompson.  He does bad things…. some things I can’t even say out loud.  And get this, I didn’t want to be the only one with elves in the house this year.  So what did I do?  I sent out four elves to some friends here in blogville.  Some of them you might have already met.  My cousin Sammy has Elfvis – which has already gotten into some trouble.  My friends the Pigs have Timmy.  And then there’s a couple of other peeps that haven’t commented yet on their new elf’s name.

You see my friends may be thanking me too quickly.  You see, the day after Thanksgiving (11/28/2014) is when the elves get their special powers.  We won’t know until then if all of these friends that I sent out will be naughty or nice.  So I just want to put this out there my friends – I’m sorry – snorts.  It’s going to be a long holiday season.  The Elf on the Shelves have special powers from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Day.

So I have a really, REALLY important question to you my friends in blogville.

 Is there anyone that can take this little oinker in for a couple of weeks?

Please.  I’ll be nice… really.

Shivers just thinking of what Don Juan is up to… especially with my sock monkey!  Squeals!
