On the Road with Bashful!

OUT AND ABOUT WITH BASHFUL… the rolling stone





Greetings my friends!!  My name is Bashful and most of you know me as Bacon’s pet rock.  I’ve really grown attached to living at the Hotel Thompson and I like to think I’ve come into my own here.  I’ve been working with Bacon and mom/dad in what I can bring to the table.  I wanted to do something because everyone kind of participates here in Bacon’s blog – even the purr things.  Well, we all put our heads together and come up with “Out and About with Bashful… the rolling stone”.   I’m going to get to go on field trips all over the place and then report back with pictures on what I did.  This is my first in a long series.  I hope you enjoy and please leave comments – I love to hear from you!


This past weekend, mom/dad took me for a small field trip to Wally World.  You probably know it better as Walmart.  But don’t let me get too ahead of myself.  I got to ride in the Smart car.  That was so much fun!  Here I am playing on the front windshield.  You can see me in the  middle near the wipers.  I thought it was a hoot hanging out here until mom/dad got ready.  I like this car – it’s small like me! 

Dad eventually told me I had to get down.  He was afraid that mom was going to turn on the wipers and send me flying across the yard.  That would have been fun… well except for the landing.  The landing would have sucked.  Oops, I gotta put a pebble in the swear jar.




So finally, I got into the little Smart car.  Did you know there is a great spot for me to sit right there on the dash?  It was the coolest thing.  It was like it was made for little me.  I was thrilled… that is until mom took the corner and I went flying on the floorboard near dad’s feet.  I shook myself off and realized that it was kind of fun to go “WHEE WHEE” at a high speed.  Mom said I couldn’t do that again.  I could lose an eye doing something like that.  So, I got buckled in for the rest of the trip.




Before you knew it, we were at Wally World!!  I’ve heard about this place but had never been.  Mom/dad put me in the buggy for the ride – I didn’t know there would be rides at the store!  I was so excited. 

My very first field trip.  Half of the fun was in getting there.  You’ll have to stay tuned in what got me in trouble at Wally World.  I was bad – but I was a good bad – hee hee.

Hope you enjoyed my little teaser.

    Your parents are jolly smart for running a smart car. Smart for the planet and smart for the pocket. Afterall, small is the new big!
