April Fool’s Day?

Happy April Fool’s Day my friends.  What?  That’s not how it’s suppose to go?  Oh, I get it.  I’m suppose to “fool” you into something that you are not aware of.  Oh I see – that’s how it works.  Well, since I’ve already blown that part let me go in another direction.  That would be fun, right?  Nods piggy head – sure it will be.

I will tell you three things.  ONE of them is true.  YOU guess which one.  How’s that for an April Fool’s Day?  These may be tough so work it out my friends.


Statement 1 -

Since mommy loves the Mickey Mouse so much, dad thought he would meet her half way.  He loves the rock group KISS.

So, daddy compromised and got this rocking Mickey Mouse/KISS tattoo this past weekend.  Cool huh?

It looks tough.  It looks cool.  Mommy loves it.  Daddy loves it.  It’s a win-win situation.  Don’t you think it’s groovy?

.


Statement 2 -

Oh dear piggy heavens help me – please help me!  Mom and dad are doing a complete renovation here at the Hotel Thompson.  Work started today and should be completed by Friday, April 17, 2015.

We are talking gut work – front room, kitchen and hallway.  Out with all of the old – furniture, carpet and yucky linoleum in the kitchen.  Painted walls, new floors and new furniture – perhaps some other really cool stuff.

All by Friday, April 17, 2015.  Can I come live with you?


Statement 3 -

Our next door neighbor is getting a piggy – squeals – I’m going to have a girlfriend for real!  They’ve talked about it for a while now.

I’m so excited.  I can’t wait for you any longer Miss Piggy. :(

There you go my friends.  Three statements – which one is the truth?  Go!

Pay it Forward

Okay Friends – Here We Go!

My sweet friends at Nikitaland have started this monthly issue of Pay It Forward.  We asked for you to keep this in mind all month and to share things here today on what you have been able to do.  Paying it forward is not for bragging purposes – it’s an attempt to show how many different things we can do to pay it forward – lots of them don’t even include money.  Gestures that we take for granite may be a God send to another person.  So here we go – I’ll start on what mommy has done in the past month.


Mom *always* buys breakfast for at least one person during the month in a drive thru.  This month wasn’t any different :)  She bought breakfast for the guy behind her in line at the drive thru and left him a pay it forward card.

Dad brought the trash cans up from the drive for us and the neighbor.

Mom left a card in the mailbox for the mail lady with a piece of chocolate once during the month as an appreciation gift.

Mom also fixed all six of her supervisors at work a treat bag for St. Patrick’s Day.  They had green shot glasses and some candy.  They were a huge hit and everyone seemed like they really enjoyed them.

AND, they were easy :)  All 6 shot glasses with candy wrapped in green paper cost only around $5.00

And this month mommy did something for daddy too.  She surprised him with dinner one night to a place that he really enjoys.  She took off work early, pick him up and they went off in Albert the Smart Car. She didn’t even tell him she was leaving work early that day.  It was a great surprise and daddy had an awesome time!


Thanks my friends for reading and supporting the Pay it Forward mission.  What did YOU do this month to make a difference?  Please post on your page and link back so everyone can see that it takes everyone making a small part to do a great dent!

My buddy Nikitaland made up a good deeds sheet.  You can get it here.  You can print it, hang it on your fridge and just jot some things down that you do during the month.  That way at our next meet up, you can share what you have done to PAY IT FORWARD.

AND if you are interested in getting some Pay it Forward bracelets, check out Nikitaland’s post here for ordering information.  Believe me friends – WE CAN ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Next meet up will be Friday, May 1, 2015 – mark your calendars!

Sherlock Bones – My Cousin

  Hey friends.  I’m not sure if you remember my cousin, Sherlock Bones, that lives in Chicago with my Aunt Tina.  I wanted to introduce you to him – he’s just hanging out listening to some leadership theories.  You know just hanging.  He’s a smart guy – right up there with the likes of me.  Snorts – yeah.  We would make awesome sidekicks.

Couldn’t you see him as Sherlock Holmes.. I mean Bones and me as his trusty-yet-handsome-adorable-snuggly assistant Dr. Watson?  I think it would be a perfect fit.

We could travel the world with the likes of Scooby Doo solving mysteries and working for awesome food.  What?  What do we need money for?  That’s why we have humans – snorts.

Who would be your side kick my friends?

Bacon’s Show and Tell

For Bacon’s Show and Tell for March we are focusing on another great toy you had from childhood.  Mom and dad both had this toy.  They played with it for hours – you could mess things up, redo the picture, write stuff and draw beautiful pictures… if you were talented – snorts.  What was this awesome toy you are asking.

 An Etch-A-Sketch.  Do you remember them now?  Oh my pigs.  Mommy got a dreamy look on her face as she reminisced about her memories.  One of her favorite things was going line by line only moving inches at a time to the left to make the entire screen blacked out.  What a thrill that was when you couldn’t see any part of the screen – snorts – mom was so easily amused for sure.  She said that hers got broken because one of her brothers stepped on the glass part.  Another toy that had a brief life expectancy but was fun while she had it.

Dad remembers playing with his as well.  He had more talent… I guess you could call it that… and he would draw on his.  Now, I’m not saying that you would recognize the pictures – snorts – but he would attempt at it.  And then write messages on it and erase them to keep them secret.  He doesn’t remember what happened to his childhood inspiration.  It’s probably a good thing.

Can’t wait to visit other blogs and see what they had as one of their cherished toys from childhood.  Hope you had fun this month my friends!

Dear Bacon – Sleeping Edition

 NOTE:  Due to Bacon’s Show and Tell coming out tomorrow (3/31/2015), I am featuring my weekly Tuesday edition of Dear Bacon issue today.  I hope you enjoy my friends!


 

20140111-200522.jpg

Dear Bacon –  When you are tired, you are tired.  What can I say?  I’ve watched the humans here at my paradise.  When they come home from work, they lay down on the couch and put their legs up.  I thought I would give it a whirl.  I gotta say, it’s awesome.  So relaxing and peaceful.  Have you ever tried this?  Signed Forty Winks

Dear Forty Winks –  You know you look so peaceful there my friend.  I’m going to have bounce the purr things off of the couch here, climb up and stretch on the big boy couch to see what it feels like.  I have gotten on mom’s love seat with her but somehow your position looks so appealing.  Thanks for the tidbit of information.  I’m off to see if purr things can fly now.  Snorts


20140111-200536.jpg

Dear Bacon – The mailman was being so rude when he snapped this picture.  Yes I was taking a power nap.  But let me set the record straight right now.  If he had opened the gate or stepped one toe into my space, I would have been on him like a casing on a sausage.  I’m just sayin’ – no joking around.  I protects what is mind.  Signed Power Pup

Dear Power Pup – You know my friend I believe you.  How dare that mailman take this photograph of you and send it to your humans.  I just know you will get even for that little mis-step… right?  I’m sure a great sneak attack barking ferociously will set that guy in his place… in more ways than one.  Keep me posted.


20140111-200546.jpg

Dear Bacon – My human said I was quote, “Flying off of the rafters” and advised me to take a nap.  Yes that is right.  She sent me to her room while she had company.  Hhmmphh – I was sore for a few minutes.  That is until I pounced on top of the big bed and got comfy on her pillow.  These humans have the life!  What luxury they sleep in – and they expect us to sleep on the floor.  I don’t think so.  This pillow is now marked MINE… all MINE.  Signed Spoiled Puss

Dear Spoiled Puss –  Hey, I’m with you my friend.  The humans do sleep in luxury.  I agree 100%.  That’s why every time I get a chance, I’m so on mom/dad’s Select Comfort bed right in the middle with *my* pillow.  And yep, I would be a 65 on the Sleep Number bed – snorts.  Happy Dreams.


20140111-200601.jpg

Dear Bacon – Our human went to sleep while we were out playing.  We heard them snoring. Dude, they can make the racket louder than any of us, right?  Well, me and my twin thought we would just stare at them until it woke them up.  Have you ever done this?  It’s a fun game.  The woke with a start.  I think we have powers… secret powers.  Signed Pig Powers

Dear Pig Powers – One pig to you two, I *know* we have super powers.  The humans just don’t realize it but they will soon when we take over the world!  Snorts – Pig Power


20140111-200613.jpg

Dear Bacon – Oh dude.  I went out last night with the boys and things got a little wild.  Okay maybe a LOT wild. I woke up like this on a picnic table in a yard I don’t know with none of my friends.  I don’t even know what we did.  Shakes head – what a night!  Signed Cat Calling

Dear Cat Calling – Oh my friend, you need to slow down and rethink your life.  You don’t even know what you did, where you ended up at and no friends to help you in case something happened while you were sleeping.  You might want to rethink that party life and focus on the future.  Your college cat calling nights on the fence might be over.  Take care of you okay!


REMEMBER FRIENDS – We can’t have Dear Bacon issues without YOU.  Keep your pictures and questions coming to me via email :)

I’ve Created a New Season – Happy Sprinter

This picture is from Wikipedia.  It shows the typical seasons – Spring, Summer, Fall and then Winter.  That’s the way it’s suppose to fall.  But this year, dear old Mother Nature is not playing fairly.  Mommy says she needs hormone shots and daddy says she needs more dates with Father Time.  I’m not sure which one is right.  I just know that maybe she needs a kick in the butt.  Yep, I said.  I kick right smack in the middle of her captains quarters.

You see, this weekend is what I’m talking about.  Saturday here at the Hotel Thompson we get up and it is beautiful.  There’s no other way to put it.  The birds are chirping (and that’s a story for another time – snorts), the sun is out, the wind is just right and the temperatures are in the 60’s.  You couldn’t ask for a more gorgeous day.  Mom and me went out to wash her Smart car Albert.  It only took less than five minutes by throwing a cup of water at it – snorts.  I kill myself.

20140112-143627.jpg

Our neighbor Big Daddy had cut our yard and the back yard was spectacular.  Thanks Big Daddy!  We went out there and ran for a while.  Mommy says it was for me to get some sun and I said I understood.  Secretly I knew she wanted me to run some excess Winter weight off so I would sleep more deeply tonight.  I’m good with that.  I just wonder why she didn’t make daddy do the same.  Double snorts.

It was a wonderful day.  Lots of running, loving and snuggles.

Then BAM!  What a change Sunday.  Sunday brought us rain, cool weather and strong winds.  We could actually sit inside and hear the winds!  We all got up and had breakfast together.  It was so damp and yuck outside that after breakfast, we all went back to bed.  Now, I’m not hating days like this because usually, like this day, when we go back to bed we all get on the Select Comfort for a siesta.  It was great.

Picture this.  A king sized Select Comfort bed with two humans, two purr things and a piggy.  Snorts, I’m a 65 with mommy on the Select Comfort.  Daddy and the purr things are a 100.  That’s just too hard for this little oinker.  When we got up from our nap, it was still yuck outside.

Now, I’m telling you all of this for a reason.  It’s suppose to be Spring but it still acts like Winter.  I’m suggesting a new season called – Sprinter.  You get it?  Spring with Winter.  So sometime today, tell someone Happy Sprinter.  Then smile and remember my little story here.  :)

Happy Sprinter my pals!
