Travels in the South

Oh sweet friends – welcome back to another edition of Travels in the South.  Today we bring you some entertainment.  While Fozziemom and Fozziedad were visiting, all decided to go to Tybee Island, Georgia.  Once there, they were hungry and thirsty so went across the street to one of mom/dad’s favorite restaurants called Bernies.

Last week, on this post here – I showed you some of the food that they had at the restaurant – strips of bread and beer cheese and buffalo shrimp.  Who could ask for anything more?  Well these four would ask for something more – snorts with piggy laughter.

You see, Bernies sells an alcoholic concoction that they call Jell-O shots.  Not just any Jell-O shots but Jell-O shots in different flavors and topped with Pop Rocks.  Yep Pop Rocks – you know the little candies that pop in your mouth and was the roar years and years ago.  Well mom thought hey ya’ll, let’s do some Jell-O shots.  And everyone was like sure why not we’ve never had any before.  So the table of Jell-O virgins had shots all around all in different flavors.

You take a little stirring stick and break the Jell-O from the sides and then gulp in down in one or two swallows.  At the time of swallowing, you have the magical Pop Rocks popping in your mouth.  Well one Jell-O shot led to several Jell-O shots and the table was feeling great.

So great was the Jell-O shots that even Bashful had to get into the action.  And we all know that rock likes his alcohol for sure!  So everyone left the restaurant in good spirits and walked back across the street to their hotel.  Now last week, I hinted at something extra that my mom did with her circus wig.  So now, I’m going to tell you what she did.  Come closer.

Everyone went to their rooms and it was decided that they would change into swimsuits to go to the pool, which was right across their rooms.  So mom changes into her swimsuit and giggles like a school girl in the bathroom.  She comes out with her robe and tells daddy what she did.  Daddy falls across the bed he is laughing so hard.  Mom then goes over to the joining door to Fozziemom’s room and knocks.  Fozziemom answers and she tells Fozziemom that she needs her opinion in something.  Fozziemom was so quick to say sure what do you have.  Mom then opens up her robe showing her bathing suit.  And let’s just say mom put that wig ‘down under’.  She then proceeded to ask Fozziemom if she thought mom needed to shave before going to the pool.  Honest truth.  That shows you how whacked my mom is.  Snorts with piggy laughter.

So until we meet again – cheers!

Box of Boogers

What the cream cheese!?  Mom/dad went out … alone might I add.  When they came home, they were laughing about boogers.  Boogers my friends.  Shaking my piggy head.  Only my humans would find boogers hilarious.  Then dad was like you should have eaten one and tried it.  Now that got my attention.  My mom eating boogers – eyes up questioning dad’s sanity.  Then mom was like if you eat one I will.  WTP?  Mom hello – if dad jumped off a building would you?

So while they went into the kitchen giggling like school kids, I grabbed mom’s iPhone and ran to my bedroom to see if I could find out what was going on.  That’s when I found it.  Box of Boogers.  “Tangy gummy boogies that look and feel real”.  Really  – who cares?!

Do you want to try one?  Go ahead and admit it – you do don’t you?

Dear Bacon – We are the Bark Crew.  We do spare jobs around the house and inside of the house.  We have extra paws so we are good at electrical and tile work.  You have work – we need the job.  So can you spread the word?  Signed Bark Crew

Dear Bark Crew – Now that’s what I’m talking about.  Anipals for anipals and getting the job done.  Can you give me a few references to also share?  I’m sure the dads around the houses will love someone else helping with their Honey Do lists for sure!


 Dear Bacon – The humans went out for their date night and this is my time for Netflix and Chill.  Yeah, I no humans do it a little different but what can I say.  I’m an anipal that has an incentive – booze, cheeze-its and dog movies.  Look at the woof on that pooch on screen!  That’s what I’m talking about.  SIgned Chilling

Dear Chilling – Hey dude – I like how you think. The next time your humans go out, give me a call and we will make a party of it.  I know of a few anipals we could invite.  While the humans are away – we can live it up with some Jamison!


Dear Bacon – We just want you to know the truth.  When the song Bad Boys comes on and asks what you going to do – think of us.  We are undercover canines for the police department.  Sorry we can’t show you our faces – we’re undercover dude.  But we are always working and on the job – heck we could be in your hood and you would never know.  If you did, we wouldn’t be doing our job, right?  So carry on little pig and don’t worry – we are here to protect you!  Signed Undercover

Dear Undercover – Squeals with piggy delight.  DUDES!  I so wanna go undercover too.  I just know I could be a undercover pig.  I mean who would expect a pig, right?  I know I have the skills – I just know it.  Do you think I could shadow ya’ll one day in a ride along?  Just let me know and I’ll be there.  Be safe out there on those mean streets!


Dear Bacon – Times are tough these days.  My humans are barely making it work so I told them I would help out and get a job to make some of that green stuff.  So I did what any good standing pooch would do.  Hello – I’m your Uber driver:)  They will hire anyone as long as you have a car and know the streets.  And what better anipal to fit that criteria but me.  So hit me up if you need a ride.  I keep water and dog biscuits in the back set for your pleasure.  Thanks bunches.  Signed Cliff

Cats Rule – Pigs Drool!

 Hello blogville – Hemi here.  Can you say busted little piggy?  I told you I could get better pictures of the roaming chickens.  I set up the situation Saturday afternoon.  I then sat a few feet away from the door… just waiting.  Cause you know, us lions are good at waiting.  I must have sat there for hours… okay maybe it was 30 minutes.  Who could sit longer with that pig and dog running around here at the Hotel Thompson.

Then it happened.  I heard them first but I waited patiently.  I saw a couple of these 2 piece snacks walk in front of my door.  That’s when I silently stalked up to the door and peering over the threshold.  If you wait, more will come and that’s what I did.  At one time, I counted five babies… then the mom showed up.   Look closely at the picture to the right above where I am standing – you can see her head.

And we are right.  As soon as the pig and dog spotted them and started making enough noise to wake the dead – rolls kitty eyes – they ran back to the neighbors house and went into their backyard.  They so live there!  Can you say busted?

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!


Hey my friends!  How did you do last week?  Last week was better for me.  I actually was a good girl and went home and cooked after work every night.  Can you believe that?  I was so proud of myself!  AND we kept it good clean foods – eggs, salads, veggies.  I was very proud of myself cause I feel great this week.  Me and the hub have decided to eat clean, walk and we are not going to let that little devil called the scale rule us.  We were weighing once a week and I think that kind of commanded the next week.  So, we are now going to weigh once a month.  I already feel less stress with putting that in place.  How often do you weigh?  Does that deviled scale rule your life?

Now my friends – how did you do?❤

Table for Two Please

Like many people, Saturday night was mom/dad’s date night.  You might remember that a couple of week’s ago, they went to dine at the finest restaurant this south of Atlanta.  It was the Sam’s Warehouse – snorts with piggy laughter.  Daddy went in and asked for a table for two – rolls piggy eyes.  He’s the romantic isn’t he?  The previous night they had pizza.  You can read about that date night here.

Well mom must have enjoyed her fine dining experience because last night she wanted to go back.  But this time, they wanted hot dogs with the works.  By the works I mean sauerkraut, onions and mustard.  Dad also went the extra mile with a bag of chips.  Now you are probably asking yourself was this as awesome as the pizza night?  Nods head.  Mom said YES.  For a whopping $5.00 – they had dinner for two.  Big spenders huh?

Now after they were eating and were just sitting there talking, they saw some peeps they knew.  The peeps came over and sat with mom/dad asking them what they were doing.  Mom said they were on their date night.  The peep said, “Hogwash – you’re married now.  There are no date nights”.  What?  Mom/dad didn’t get that memo.  They always have weekly date nights.  Don’t your parents?

Hospitality

It was almost like looking in mirror. I’m sure my little tyke got all of his home sickness out right there my dear friend. And don’t forget that one tiny little mishap… never fear. He was just out looking for Peyton Manning his hero… besides me of course. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

Tails Around the Ranch

This week I’ve been entertaining our friend, Bashful. Sam here. Other than that one teeny, tiny little mishap where we almost lost him at last weekend’s pet awards, we’ve had a pretty good time I think. He went with us to the hospital this week and hung out with various volunteers, staff and patients. But I think he’s been a little homesick the past few days. Bacon‘s mom sent some cool toys along with the little guy so I tried to make him feel like he was back home. How’d I do? I mean, Bacon and I could practically be twins, right?

Missing bro (1)

Our visit is coming to an end soon but we hope the little guy had fun while he was in the Mile High City. Here’s hoping everyone has a great weekend and that our fur-iends in Louisiana and throughout the South are safe and dry. Please keep them in your…
