BARKS! It’s not fair. It really isn’t. Why? Well one of my toys decided to blow up right out of the blue. I had absolutely nothing to do with it. It started on the couch, went to the floor and ended up under the sofa. I had nothing to do with it not whatsoever. Dogs honor. Have you ever had a toy do this?
Of course, mom was too happy to be taking shots at my rump. Like really mom. That was a private moment. What if I took a picture of your butt up in the air. Just sayin’. Barks with puppy laughter.
Now my friends, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy. I hope you enjoy this one – Barks!
Hello friends of the Hotel Thompson. This is Sherlock Bones reporting in from Chicago, Illinois. Do you remember who I am? I am Bacon, Houdini’s and Hemi’s cousin (my mom is Bacon’s mom’s sister). WOW – that’s a lot to follow isn’t it? Well guess what? The gang’s mom/dad are not at the Hotel Thompson. The gang of anipals are at Nana’s for a couple of days. Why do you ask?
Because I have kidnapped them and they are magically here with me… and my two purr things – Poseidon and Marmalade. Trust me, we are all taking good care of the pawrents. We won’t let them get into too much trouble… but considering Bacon’s dad I think that asks for way too much, right? And we all know where Bacon’s dad will be. At any spectacular restaurant he can find – howls with laughter! So stay tuned next week. I’m sure there will be lots of details to spill.
Oh boy, has daddy got a good one today for you my friends. For obvious reasons, I’m going to let daddy explain his choice to you – snorts with piggy laughter.
Thank you Bacon – now you scoot along and be a good piggy. You certainly do not need to see this.
Hello friends – Look at this burger! Can you say in the famous words of Bacon, “Oh my piggy heavens?!”
On a recent outing with the wife, I came across the burger. The menu called it The Boss. I nicknamed it The Caveman. It was *almost* too much for even me to handle… but I did.
The pictures don’t do it justice – it is HUGE!
Are you asking yourself what is in this creation? There is a hamburger patty on the bottom, topped by smoked brisket, tender rib meat, jalapeno cheddar smoked sausage, bacon and cheddar.
I could barely wrap my hands around this burger. And once I did get my hands around it, I wouldn’t dare put it down because it would fall apart on me. And that my friends would be horrible.
So I picked it up and dug in. This burger was so piled with goodies inside that they kept falling out and onto my tray.
And see those french fries on my plate. I’m sure they would have been good but I had no room left to enjoy them.
And if the sandwich was that big, do you think I could wrap my mouth around it? Barely – that is the word – barely!
And it was good until the last bite!
Dear Bacon – I’m just being friendly. That’s it. Really I am. He looked so lonely in the cage. I just thought I would pop in to say hey and you know give him a reassuring pat of assurance from me. That’s it. Really. Signed Felix the Friendly Kitty
Dear Felix the Friendly Kitty – Sure buddy. Whatever you say. Just remember though that the proof is now in pictures. That means no mistakes in your friendly ‘pats of assurance’. Just sayin’ my friend.
Dear Bacon – I’ve heard you come from a long line of football players. We know not players per say but footballs themselves – Barks! Well, we gotta game going in our hood all of the time. Next time you are in the area, join us. And don’t worry, we won’t deflate the ball at all. Signed Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady
Dear Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady – What guys you are. Thanks for the invite and I will definitely keep that in mind. Can’t wait for the football season to start this year!.
Dear Bacon – There was this pot that mom had on the porch. She grows beautiful things in it. So I was thinking that I’m a puppy and maybe for me to grow into something beautiful, I would pot myself. I jumped in and added water. Is it working yet? Signed Puppy Flower
Dear Puppy Flower – I don’t really think that is how it happens my friend. But on the other hoof, you look really cute in that bucket. And hey you got a bath out of it too. I say just be you. You are going to grow up soon enough. And remember one final thought buddy. You are already beautiful.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes no matter how small you are, one needs to draw the line. The humans put me in a wine glass. What.were.they.thinking? A wine glass. I’m not a wine glass kind of pup. I think I’m more of an oversized coffee cup kind of pooch. What do you think? Signed Small Barks
Dear Small Barks – I have to say my friend, either way I think you are cute in either a wine glass or a coffee cup. I think you should play it for everything it’s worth. Make the humans pay in so many different ways – extra treats, extra puppy chow. .
Dear Bacon – I have to say a puppy power nap is sometimes the best thing you can do. I highly recommend them any time during the day or night. Take notes from me pal. Don’t forget your blankie and pillow. Signed Sleepy Town
Dear Sleepy Town – WOW! You are the posted child for a puppy power nap my friend. I love it and trust me. I am so taking notes!
REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon issues can’t happen without YOU. Please remember to email me your picture and letters.
Welcome my friends. I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living. It’s a step in the right direction for sure. I hope you come along for the ride. Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share. Hope you enjoy. Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤
Week of 05/13-05/19/2018 – Week 19
“Dear Journal – I think one of the biggest things about losing weight/eating healthier is getting your mindset in the right direction. If your mind is not there, it’s not going to happen regardless of how many times you attempt. Another for me is setting goals. If I have the mindset and a mini goal to get to, it’s a done thing. It’s the way I’m made just like others I’m sure. In saying that, I’m re-adjusting my life, getting things in line and hitting my plan effective June 1. Why am I putting it off until June 1? Why not start today? Well, we have vacation plans this week/next. I’m going to enjoy myself and then hit it hard with monthly goals. That is the plan. So my walking pace will be back in June – come hell or high water.”
This week walked: 6.10
TOTAL 2018 Miles: 135.75
TOTAL 2017 Miles: 541.06
❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤
Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –
May 20th is a wonderful glorious day. It is National Pick Strawberries Day – what a great
day to enjoy. I know that this is a day that the pig Bacon can wrap those jowls around. He absolutely LOVES strawberries and that’s a huge understatement.
Today, start a new tradition. Go find a strawberry field and pick your own strawberries. Start a family tradition. I think Bacon’s mom is actually going to go and pick the little fellow a few of his own today. I wonder if they will let Bacon come and pick his own? Chitter Chatter – that would be a picture for the blog! Enjoy my friends!
