Dear Bacon


Dear Bacon – I’m a clown in the circus.  I love working in the circus except for one thing – I don’t like when people squeeze my red nose.  Other than that, it’s a blast.  Signed Pancho the Donkey Clown

Dear Pancho the Donkey Clown – That’s *all* you worry about?  People squeezing your red nose?  Not your clothes, the hat or the make-up.

Just the people squeezing your nose?  Dude, go with it!  Have fun at a job you love and earn your money while you can.

Maybe one day you can move to that donkey retirement community you’ve been looking into.

20130220-081227.jpgDear Bacon – I’m a happy pooch now.  I had some problems with my teeth and my master took me to the dentist.

I am so happy with the results!  AND he put in a little bling for me.  What do you think?  Signed Smiling Pooch

Dear Smiling Pooch – Well, your smile brought a smile to my face – it must be working.  You do look really happy in that picture.

And, I kind of like the bling.  Your master must really love you my friend!


Dear Bacon – Sometimes in life, we just have to stop and smell the roses.  You know, take each day one day at a time and focus in on the moment.  I’m a lot more relaxed these days doing that.  Signed Goat of Leisure.

Dear Goat of Leisure – Yes my friend.  You do look really relaxed in that floatie.  I think I may have to take some time today to enjoy the moment.  Thanks for sharing your deep thoughts.

20130220-081245.jpgDear Bacon – We have a game in the house where us purr things get into the boxes that are attached by the string.  The string is attached to the barky thing that pulls us around the house.  It’s really kind of fun.

Maybe you can use this traveling method for your purr things?  Signed Sliding Kitties

Dear Sliding Kitties – Yes I think that would be perfect for the purr things here.  *I* can get in a box and *they* can pull me around the house.

Perhaps they can bow down to me as well – snort.  It does look like a fun way to travel through the house!


20130220-081254.jpgDear Bacon – It’s cold outside in this weather.  Betsy and I have been knitting and this is what we came up with.  It’s quite the hit on the farm.  It did take us a while to knit it though – it’s hard knitting with your beaks.  What do you think?  Signed Two Cold Chicks

Dear Two Cold Chicks – That is very creative.  I’m kind of digging it.  Do you think you ladies can create something for me?  I would cherish it and wear it forever!

Journal to Healthier Living – Week 10

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 03/11-03/17/2018 – Week 10

“Dear Journal – Do you ever feel like time is slipping away.  You look in the mirror one day and you love your curly hair and your long legs.  You look again and your hair is thinning and those once long giraffe legs now resemble a short buffalo?  LOL – okay nothing that drastic but you get the meaning.  Life is short.  We talked about celebrities aging today… and then realized that we were also aging.  We still act like kids young at heart while our bodies get older every day.  What once we thought would never happen to us when our grandparents couldn’t get up as fast or walk as far has now hit us… no full force yet but knocking on the door for short visits.  We say it all of the time – life is short.  So what do we do?  Live it up as if it is the last.  Because you never know – tomorrow is not a given 🙂 ” 

This week walked: 5.17

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  80.31

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  541.06

  small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤



This week the hub unit was craving homemade fried shrimp and his beloved tater tots.  I use to limit these meals because of the deep frying and I still do.  But, I wanted to see what the air fryer could do for my hub’s favorite meal.  I bought fresh shrimp, deveined them and slightly pounded them giving them a ‘flat’ appearance.  I then battered the shrimp with a light coating of egg mixture and seasoned flour.  I placed them in the air fryer for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.  Have way, I turned them and added the tater tots.  They came out beautifully!  Lightly tanned on the outside, crunchy and so juicy on the inside.

Deep Thoughts Monday


This morning after my breakfast of piggy chow and Cheerios I was reading the newspaper… You know catching up on the current events. While reading the paper, I had a cup of coffee that looked kind of like this.  That started me thinking. Wouldn’t you love to go to your neighborhood coffee shop and order a cup of joe like this? Wouldn’t it make you smile? You would think of me, wouldn’t you? It takes a very talented barista to pull this off and make coffee look this good. Maybe Starbucks needs to add it to their menu. Mom would definitely order it.

Having this cup of coffee made me think of the different changes in the world. What if… Let me stop laughing… What if the roles were reversed and mommy stayed at home and I went to her worky place? I think being a pig I could fit right into the mix. It might work. Let’s really think about it shall we.


Mommys computer has dual monitors. I’m not sure what that actually means but it sounds exciting. Mom says she types a lot all day long and plays with numbers. Now I can’t type the 100 plus words a minute that she does cause you know she has 10 fingers and I only have 2 hooves but I can try. And playing with numbers, well I’m not so good at that but it should be interesting in payroll and monthly STATs that she does. Ok well maybe going to work wouldn’t be a good idea.

Then I started thinking about the animal store called Petco. Have you been there? They have a cat and dog buffet bar that the humans can fix for them. Petco, I have a complaint with that. Why can’t you make a piggy buffet bar? Just saying.

Rocky’s Nut Brunch

Hello dear friends.  I have a great one for you today.  If you are like Bacon’s mom, she is always forgetting what side of her car has the gas tank.  I’m going to show you today how you can tell without getting out of your car.  It’s really easy.  Look at your gas gauge.  Do you see the little gas pump image?  Whatever side the arrow is pointing at, that is the side of your gas tank.  For example, in this picture the gas tank has the arrow to the left.  The gas tank is on the left side.  If the arrow was pointing to the right, the gas tank would be on the right side.  Did you know that?  Now you do!

Happy St Patrick’s Day

You don’t *have* to be Irish to enjoy this day – happy St Patrick’s Day!

Make sure you are wearing something green or you may get pinched… then again you might like getting pinched – snort LOL. I think daddy has his lucky green Irish shirt out to wear today and mom is wearing her green Irish socks. I think they are safe. I think they need to put my green vest on so I can be festive as well. Perhaps mom will get camera happy and take a picture for later on for every one.

I’ve got some St Patrick day facts for you – how many did you know?

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, although he was born in Britain, around 385 AD. His parents Calpurnius and Conchessa were Roman citizens living in either Scotland or Wales, according to different versions of his story.

Wearing green, eating green food and even drinking green beer, is said to commemorate St Patrick’s use of the shamrock. Did you know that mom and dad have been to restaurants on this date where the sweet tea is green! Shocking huh? But the bigger shocker is that the actual color of St Patrick’s Day is blue. Green became associated with St Patrick’s Day during the 19th century. Green, in Irish legends, was worn by fairies and immortals and also by people to encourage their crops to grow.

Popular Irish toats on St Patrick’s Day include, “May the roof above us never fall and may we friends beneath it never fall out.”

St Patrick’s Day was first celebrated in America in Boston, Massachusetts in 1737.

In Chicago on St Patrick’s Day, the rivers are dyed green.

In Seattle on St Patrick’s Day, there is a ceremony where a green stripe is painted down the roads.

Savannah, Georgia is the second biggest parade party for St Patrick’s day. Savannah holds a special place in my heart as well as my parents. Did you know that mom and dad adopted me from a little town about 80 miles from Savannah called Broxton. Small world huh?

Lucky Charms, a favorite cereal for young and old, was created in 1963 with it’s popular mascot, Lucky the Leprechaun. Do you remember the tune?

Hearts, Stars and Horseshoes – Clover and Blue Moons – Pots of gold and rainbows – And the red balloon. That’s the luck of me lucky charms! Their magically delicious!

Spring is Around the Corner

20130319-083317.jpgI think this says “EVERYTHING” about what I’m feeling – spring is near and around the corner.

I SO CAN’T WAIT!!  It’s time for this little piggy to come out of some hibernation and start moving again.  I miss the days of running throughout the Hotel Thompson and chasing playing with the purr thing and the barky thing.  I just know they’ve missed me too.

And with Spring – you know what else comes – all the wonderful fruits of the season.  Oh, it makes my little mouth water so much.

Is everybody with me on this Spring thing??
