Adventures with Mom/Dad

Hello my friends.  If you have been following my blog for any length of time, then you know that my mom/dad are crae-crae, crazy, over the top, not swimming with both oars or shall we say can not go out into public without getting into trouble.  You understand where I’m coming from?

This weekend was no exception.  I’m telling you, mom/dad left to their own devices not under anipal care, can be committed somewhere with matching white jackets that tie in the back.  At this point, you are probably asking yourself well what the heck did they do this time?

Dad had been telling mom all week that Saturday night, he was taking her somewhere special, somewhere with pizzazz with great food and that the place was very popular.  Come Saturday night, mom donned some special clothes and met dad in the front room.  Dad told her, “Honey you are way overdressed.”  So mom went and put on some jeans and a t-shirt.  That’s when she started thinking what kind of “nice” place was this restaurant.

They get into the Jeep and dad gives mom instructions.  That’s when… give me a moment to snort with piggy laughter… they arrived at the special restaurant with pizzazz – the local Sam’s Warehouse.  OMP – mom busted out laughing so hard and was thankful she changed clothes for this special outing.

Mom/dad entered the warehouse and had the person at the door check their membership.  That’s when dad told the greeter that he needed a table for two.  Mom just shook her head and laughed.

So mom/dad find the best seat in the house and decide what they want for dinner.  They chose pizza – astonishing huh?  But not just any pizza.  Dad referred to it as the best pizza this south of Atlanta.  And the picture really does not do it justice.  That one pizza slice is as big as a regular paper plate – or fine china as daddy called it that night.  So, two slices of pizza and two drinks for an astonishing $4.00 date night. Can you beat that?  Snorts with piggy laughter.  So, the next time you are at your local Sam’s Club, check out the amazing pizza… not that I would know personally because mom/dad didn’t bring me home a piggy bag.

Journey with Friends

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Hello sweet friends.  How did you do last week in your Journey of Life?  I am still battling my flare up but it does seem to be getting better.  I even tried to walk a bit more than last week which was awesome – slow but awesome.  I ended last week with 6.68 miles.  It helped that one day I went to our local mall and walked the entire downstairs and upstairs looking for new nose rings.  I was lucky and found some that I really liked.  But you know, they just don’t make a huge variety of them.  And yes, I got up the nerve Friday night and actually changed my nose ring out for the first time.  It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.  Yay for that!  And this week food wise is looking good.  I have our meal plans worked out which should help me getting home from work at night.

So friends – how did you do?

National Parent’s Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

 .

Today, July 24th, is National Parents Day.  Everyone has a parent –:)  Today is a special day to honor your mother and father – biological or adopted.  I know Bacon appreciates the time he spent with his biological mother and father.  If it wasn’t for them, he wouldn’t have the great parents he has today.  Bacon’s biological parents wished nothing but the best for him and I think he has it here at the Hotel Thompson with his human mom/dad.

All of us here at the Hotel Thompson are all very lucky to have mom/dad.  There’s so much love!

Today, National Parents Day, brings the real meaning of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  Spend some time with your parents doing something fun and most important showing them how much they are loved and appreciated.

And did you know that this day was made official in 1994 by President Bill Clinton who proclaimed that the fourth Sunday in July as National Parents Day!

Paw Time with Houdini


Hey my friends – how was your week?  This week has been long and I’m really looking forward to mommy being home this weekend.  Now, if only there would be cooler weather – we would all be set.  You are probably looking at this picture and saying, “What in the world?!”

You see, mom gets these ideas in her head that when she needs (not wants – barks) something, she has to have it.  Is your mom like that?  Mom has been sitting on the sofa in the evenings because of her flare up.  She kept complaining to dad that they needed ottoman to put their feet up on.  So finally, she was like that’s it!  We are buying an ottoman.  She then told daddy to be ready in 10 minutes.  See, she’s like that.  Dad calls her high strung but he still loves her.  I’m not sure what that means.

So they left me in the house with the devil cat Hemi and Bacon and off they went.  About an hour went by and they came home.  Mom was all giggly and happy.  Daddy was lugging this gigantic ottoman in the house.  This is me trying out the ottoman.  I think it passes my comfort test.  What do you think?

And it’s a cool ottoman too.  It has a top and a bottom.  You can turn the top over and you have like a hard spot to eat off of place your drink or play a game – whatever you want to do.  AND it also has a great storage place.

And you know mom.  She’s a deal maker.  She got it 70% off at our local Ashley’s Furniture which we can’t say enough nice things about.  Way to go Mom!

Now I leave you my friends with Jokes from Daddy.  Enjoy and have an awesome weekend!
