Monday Thoughts…

Last night at the Hotel Thompson was touch and go for a bit.  A storm moved in with an evil grin on its face around 3:00PM.  The skies got dark and the the clouds got all mean looking.  It got all dark outside like it was around midnight instead of the afternoon.  Thunder clacked and echoed.  Hotel Thompson sits in a gully and when the thunder boomed, the house literally shook.  For a few minutes, we thought we were going to have our own edition of the Wizard of Oz and instead of Toto – you would have me Bacon.

Then the sky let loose with harsh rain and winds.  You could hear it hitting the house and windows.  One earsplitting BOOM of thunder and we were then sitting in the dark.  The purr things ran and hid under the bed in mom/dad’s room.  I knew I was safe with mom. 

The front room was dark and all you could see were lightening flashes.  When that happened, I could see mom/dad for just a few minutes before it went dark again.  It was like a scary movie. 

CLACK – BOOM – FLASH – MOM/DAD – DARKNESS AND SILENCE.

It was something that this little piggy didn’t enjoy.  We finally all got up and went to bed.  What else was there to do?  Thank goodness my iPad still worked.  Mom set me up with a cartoon, tucked me in and stayed with me until I finally drifted off.  There’s just something about her voice! 

I think we finally got electricity back up around 7:15PM.  You really don’t realize the things you take for granted when you don’t have this wonderful thing called electricity.  Like for instance, going to the bathroom with no windows.  It’s dark in there!  And cooking.  Stoves don’t work without electricity.  Thank goodness my food doesn’t require cooking 🙂

I’m just glad that today is a new day – all full of sun and heat.  So Mother Nature, if you’re listening, no more thunder storms for a while okay.  We would really appreciate that 🙂

See, I’m a SMART Pig

Where there are matters of food, you can so find me. I love food. Can’t you tell? It takes a lot of hard work to maintain this wonderful pot bellied figure.

Mom has a thing for Lifesaver Gummies. She bought the bigger bag at the store so that she could introduce them to her favorite, ME! PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

Dad was like, “Bacon’s not going to like them”, etc. Mom was like, “I know my baby. He’s going to LOVE them.”

Well mom even went the extra step and said she was going to try something new with me. I’m not a dumb pig. When she says that, there’s going to be lots of extra food for training – snort – YES!

Mom gave me a gummie Lifesaver and what do you know – I loved it. She then proceeded to put one on my snout. She was telling me, “No, no, not yet.” I listened to her because you know more treats for me!

Then she said I could go for it. I couldn’t flip that thing off of my snout fast enough into my mouth. It was so good and juicy!! Have you ever put anything on your nose and flipped it into your mouth? Daddy was laughing at me because he said one time at a restaurant with mom he put a clam on his nose and flipped it into his mouth. See, if the food is good – they will come.

Aaaww – these are the good times! XOXO – Bacon
