To say that us anipals control and walk all over the humans here at the Hotel Thompson is kind of an understatement.  Last night, we all snuggled into the king size Select Comfort bed.  Hemi slept ‘with’ daddy.  Their setting is 100 – ha!  Me and mom kind of like it a little softer.  Our setting is a 50.  You gotta love the Select Comfort!  Mouse Girl she sleeps in her little princess bed on the floor.  She is such a girl!  And Houdini – he was right there with me and mom – a perfect 50 setting.

Notice Hemi’s position on TOP of daddy.  This is how he beds down.  Personally I think Hemi believes that daddy is his mattress.  He sleeps like this all of the time.  He often will reach his paw out and touch daddy on the face.

Sometimes, he will drift over for some mommy loving but we all know that Hemi is daddy’s little boy just like I’m mommy’s boy.  Humans are not the only ones that pick favorites – us animals do as well.  But to us, it’s a little different.  We know who we can wrap around our hooves and paws – :) Would we do that?

And you didn’t think that Hemi sleeps like this?  Just check out this bottom picture. The proof is in the picture.  He’s actually comfortable.  Touching dad’s face, his eyes closed and dreaming of chasing Journalist Rocky the Squirrel in the backyard.

But I have to ask you this – look at that paw?!  Do you understand what I mean now when I tell you it hurts when he slaps this little oinker on the fanny?  Snorts PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud)!

PPSSTT – I Have a Secret

Time to do some partying and dancing my friends.  Me and dad have a secret but you have to keep it to yourself okay.  Are you ready – pinky hoof/paw promise – you can’t tell – especially my mommy that I told you.  July 3rd is mom’s 29th birthday again.  We are throwing her a surprise birthday party here at the Hotel Thompson on July 3rd.  She doesn’t have a clue!

.

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.

.


This month there are a couple of things that took place here at the Hotel Thompson.  Of course, mom did her comparison test between Albert and Tank and bought meals for two different peeps in drive thrus.  That’s just her little way of giving.  

Daddy brought the garbage can up for a neighbor.  

Mom sent three random cards to people in her life for no apparent reason except to say that they were loved :)  I hope they enjoyed them and it made them smile at least for a few minutes.  

Here’s a funny one.  Mom is in weekly tournaments in two games that she plays.  This week, she didn’t battle to be the winner.  She shared the glory and took the back seat for a change.  This doesn’t sound like a big deal but you gotta know my mom.  She is a HUGE competitor in her weekly challenges – snorts.

And last Friday, mom made a big challenge for herself.  Everyone that she met, she made a compliment to them about something related to them.  Whether they looked nice, had a great laugh, smelled good or did a great job, she told them something to make their day.


 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!  And remember, it’s little things that add up to make someone’s day.  It doesn’t have to cost money or be a huge endeavor.  You can’t begin to realize what a smile can do for someone that really needs it that day.

I challenge you for the month of July to have a compliment day.  Compliment everyone that you meet in something that is special.  Do you accept the challenge?

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 August 5, 2015 – mark your calendars!

Dinner Approved by Satan?

  Can you say that my mom and dad have been at it again? Snorts – of course they have.  They went out to dinner over the weekend.  All was going well and they were even behaving – which in itself is something unbelievable.

Then, they get the check.  Mom starts laughing hysterically.  Dad was like, “Tell me.  I want in on the joke.”  So mom says, “Dinner was approved by Satan himself.”  Dad was like why is that?

Then mom told him.  The total on the ticket was 1666.  Dad was like, “I gotta order something else.  No way!”  Too funny.  It’s a good thing that meal was tasty.  Who knew eating could be so sinful – snorts with piggy laughter.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Hey dude!  With all of the soccer craze going on right now, I thought I would hop along and be a professional athlete as well.  I love soccer.  There is nothing more relaxing than kicking the ball around. I think I’m just as good as David Beckham or Pelé or even Cristiano Ronaldo.  What do you think?  Do you think they would count my front feet as hands?  Do you ever play ball?  Signed A Beautiful Mind

Dear A Beautiful Mind – Awesome.  That’s what I say.  I think it’s awesome that you love to play soccer as much as you do.  I can see you in the Olympics and at the big game.  And yes I can see you next to the greats that you mentioned.  I myself have snouted a ball around the backyard here from time to time.  I think it’s a great way to relief some stress.  I don’t care what any other peep thinks, you do what you love my friend.  Go score BIG TIME!


Dear Bacon – Can you guess who my hero is?  Go ahead guess.  I bet you can’t figure it out?  I know you can’t!  I’ve gotta go now and find my brother Luigi and that gorgeous Princess Peach.  Signed Mario

Dear Mario – Snorts!  Good one my friend.  You are awesome.  You look just like that guy.  No doubts in my book at all.  And yes we guessed right off who you were.  You see my mom loves Mario and Luigi and all your friends.  She says she grew up with them and gave them a run for their money playing arcades.

I think you need to work your look for as long as you can and make it work for you.  Perhaps you can go on a nationwide tour and promote Mario and Friends. Wouldn’t that be fun?  If you come to my neck of the woods, I would love to see you in person.  Take care and safe travels!


Dear Bacon –  I told everyone I would be back and here I am.  I’m back and ready to take over the world.  This time I’m coming back as a pooch that is deadly… that has secret weapons of destruction.  Don’t get in my way.  Signed Poochnator

Dear Poochnator – WOW!  Does your humans know about this?  And I have to ask.  Do you know my friend Easy?  Are you secretly Easy in disguise?  A pig has to know these answers my friend.  And hey, does your mother know about your late curfew while you are out saving the world?  And my mom says to tell you to remember to wear clean underwear… you know just in case something happens.


Dear Bacon –  I’ll do anything for a carrot.  I’ve heard you are the same.  What would you do for a carrot?  Signed Tony “The Pig” Hawk

Dear Tony “The Pig” Hawk – You go my friend.  You ride like there is no tomorrow.  Hit those decks, do those tails, ride those carves and hit some air.  I can see you doing all of these tricks and getting all of the carrots you could wish for.  And have I done anything for a carrot?  You betcha.  I’ve given Mouse Girl here back scratches and washed Hemi’s feet.What? That’s as adventurous as this pig gets!


Dear Bacon – Oh my pussy cats.  There I was in the house walking around like I normally do.  I went into the bathroom and there was a beautiful bubble bath in the tub.  I looked around and no one was there.  So I decided to take a little dip thinking that humans left it for me, right?  I’m laying back enjoying the suds and then have mercy – the human master walked in naked.  What has now been seen can not be unseen.  I’ll even be honest with you. I’m not sure which one of us screamed the loudest.  Signed Rub-a-Tub-Puss-in-a-Tub

Dear Rub-a-Tub-Puss-in-a-Tub – WOW!  Now first up.  That is a lovely ‘scared’ picture of you in the suds.  It does look like you were enjoying yourself.  Second up, I gotta ask.  Did you give up your luxurious bubble bath and give it to the human or did you share?  Snorts – I know I wouldn’t have gotten out!


FRIENDS – Please remember that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please email me your pictures and letters :)

Netflix Series

Have you watched this television series? I think it showed originally on Showtime.  (This picture was taken off of Google for the 8th Season).  The entire show is about Dexter Morgan who is a blood splatter expert working in Miami, Florida for the Miami Metro Police Department.  What people don’t know is that secretly Dexter is a serial killer.  Now saying serial killer brings to mind a bad person – an insane person, right?  I guess in a way it still rings true but Dexter is a little different.  He only kills people that deserve it.  Sounds weird huh?  We are talking about people that kill that get off in the court system or people that kill that others don’t know about.

While it was on Showtime, we didn’t watch it… you know for obvious reasons – we didn’t have Showtime :) Snorts!  But when it went to Netflix, I put that show in my queue so fast and started watching it… all eight seasons!

Now we couldn’t watch while the purr things or Houdini was still awake.  Me and mom had to wait until they went to bed and were asleep and then we would watch 1-2 shows every night.

Now I want you to think about this.  There was eight seasons and about 12-13 shows per season.  So mom and this little oinker invested probably around 100 hours of watching around 104 shows.  No, we didn’t do this overnight.  Yes, we did it during downtime.  What?  Can’t a pig have a favorite show?

If you haven’t watched the shows, I’m not going to give anything away.  But I will tell you that we went through a LOT of drama, a lot of killings, a lot of twists and a lot of plots that made your mouth hang wide.  I started to know the characters like family.  I grew fond of some of them.  And after watching the shows, me and mom would discuss what happened.

The first three seasons we watched within a matter of weeks.  They kept me on my piggy hooves while covering one eye and jumping at surprises.  Yes, they were that good.

Season 4 through 7 were okay.  Something happened along the way.  You see Dexter was trying to be ‘normal’.  He even got married and had a baby.  All of this was great.

Then there was season 8, the final season.  To us, this is where things seemed rushed.  Have you ever read a book that was so good all the way through it and then in the last chapter you learn that everything was a dream?  Well, it was kind of like this to us.  It was so good but the last show of season 8 left us wanting.  There was so much more that could have happened.  I mean, yes there are only so many killings that a serial killer can do but it just felt empty here.  Too many things happened in the last show that your brain doesn’t have time to process it.  Then when it does, your brain is like WTF just happened… pardon the bad language.

Have you seen this series?  What did you think?  Discuss.
