New Years Eve


Mommy came home from the worky place so excited tonight. While she was cooking dinner, she told me some fascinating things like tonight is the last holiday of the year. Geez I missed all of these special days being so young! She then explained that after tonight, we start a whole new year repeating the months we just finished. When it’s explained like that, I understand.

With the holiday being tonight, mom told me that I could stay up late…if I make it. Yawn – I’m already so tired. You know it’s hard having a full day like I do around the house keeping daddy and the purr things in line.

If I stayed up, Mom said that I would get to see magic in the sky. I’m not sure what she means by that and she wouldn’t explain. She only told me that I had to see it to believe it. I guess I’ll have to trust her. She hasn’t led me astray yet in my short privileged life 🙂

Our yearly tradition is to stay up late, make popcorn and watch the big peach drop on television that is downtown Atlanta, Georgia. I’m down with that by being all comfy on the couch with mom. Right now I’m watching LSU and Clemson play on television and posting from my iPad. (I got dad off it long enough from playing his Star Wars Angry Birds to do this post – thanks dad!)

Do you have any traditions tonight? Mom says we will do our New Years Resolutions tomorrow. That should be fun. I’m so excited to be able to enjoy these holidays this year.

Well, if I don’t hear from you tonight, happy New Year and I’ll talk to you next year – snort LOL

Bacon – uh oh – Houston We Have a Problem

20121231-083331.jpgDear Bacon,

HA!  I thought this would get your attention.  You haven’t done a Dear Bacon issue in what two weeks now?  What are you retiring little pig?  Couldn’t take the questions?  Can’t take the heat anymore – bark – LOL. 

Hate to say it but your public misses your little issues.  So what’s the story pig?  What’s up? 

P.S.  If you are ready to retire, I think I can take over just as well.  Just sayin’

Signed Spike


Dear Precious Spike,

Stay out of the kitchen dude!  I’m still here and rolling.  Due to the holidays, I took a little break.  I figured my peeps here would understand because they would be busy with their families as well.  I’ve been spending a lot of time bonding with my mom.  I’ll explain that in another post.  Never fear – Bacon is here!

Weekend Entertainment – Mom’s in the Pictures For a Change – YAY!


Friends, meet mom – YAY!  I know a lot of people ask about her and what she looks like.  It takes a special woman to have me… and to put up with me – snort. 

We did a LOT of mommy/piggy bonding this weekend.  My Aunt Tina came home for a visit from Louisiana and she came down to see me.  She took these wonderful pictures of me and mommy.  Mom takes all of my pictures and it’s kind of hard to get her in the picture when she’s taking the picture.  Know what I mean?  Well, Aunt Tina took these pictures during her visit. 

Mom was talking to me in this picture.  I was so intently listening because you know, she’s my mom and everything.  I was so into this conversation that the next picture will absolutely blow your mind. 

20121231-083244.jpgSee, I you that it would blow your mind.  I walked over and kissed mom with my snout.  See, I love my mommy.  And, this is a great picture of me and my short little body.  Great picture huh?  I thought it was one of those special Hallmark card kind of pictures.  So touching.  So loving.  A pig and his adopted mom – snort.

You do realize that there has to be a story behind this picture, right?  I’m not that easy.  I can be trained and I did learn a new trick this date that took me only about ten minutes.  You’re asking what the trick was.  Of course, to kiss mommy.  And how was I trained to kiss mommy?  Smile – this is going to make you laugh and smile.  Are you ready for it?



After a couple of attempts of doing this, exactly who was training who?  I was getting fed by mommy so who was tricking who.  Mom would put carrots in her mouth and lean over.  I would walk over and gently take them out of her mouth.  Yep, gently take them out of her mouth.  She is my mom.  I have to treat her special like.

After about 8 or 10 times of doing this, I caught on – wink wink.  I really caught on after the first time but with free food out like that I’m going to take whatever I can take – snort. 

See, I told you my kind was very smart.  We catch on like you wouldn’t believe.  And as you can see from these pictures, I’m not really that big.

Hogs and Kisses – Bacon
