Happy Birthday Hemi

20130624-194724.jpg

This post goes out to my brother Hemingway – Hemi for short. He is a lot of things here at the Hotel Thompson.

He is my brother.

He is my friend.

He is the master cat.

He is mom/dads oldest.

I talk about him a lot here on my blog. Mostly about him using his ginormous paw to slap me on the rump – snorts. But really, today is his birthday. Today he turns the big 8 years old. Happy birthday Hemi.

And just remember Hemi, with your age – snorts –

you might want to cut back on spanking this oinker.

Just sayin’

PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud!)

 

Oh friends, did you know that mommy/daddy adopted Hemi and his brother Tybee when they were three weeks old?  They barely had their eyes open and had just started walking – I guess you could say that was walking.  Their little tails were like a piece of yarn – 🙂  They had gotten picked up by Animal Control and taken to the shelter.  Mom and dad saved them both and brought them home.  They are such softies when it comes to us four legged animals, you know 🙂

Dear Bacon,

Hey – we’re just hanging around in underwear. I mean if the humans can do it, why can’t we, right? Signed – Trio Fruit of the Loom

Dear Trio Fruit of the Loom,

UUMM, okay. I completely understand. Some people here at the Hotel Thompson like to run around in their Fruit of the Looms too – not mentioning any names – snort snort dad snort snort. Whatever makes you comfortable, go for it my friends!

Dear Bacon,

Hey look. I don’t want any problems here. I just want to eat my little bamboo stem in peace and walk away. I’m not trying to cause any problems. Okay? Signed Panda Express

Dear Panda Express,

Why am I craving Chinese food now all of a sudden? I don’t get it. I have no problems with your little snack man. You go right ahead and eat that piece of grass bamboo. I’m more of a fruits and veggies kind of piggy any who. Good eats and take care my friend!

Dear Bacon,

Do you know how hard it is to write that great American novel? This is me on my thinking beanie bag with my books and laptop. Sometimes it is so hard to concentrate. What do I do for inspiration? Signed Next Great American Dog Writer

Dear Next Great American Dog Writer,

I do really understand your dilemma. It’s hard to be a writer. I know first hand from my experience in writing my blogs. The clue is to never give up. Inspiration comes to you when you are least expecting it. Sometimes I find it from watching television or watching the humans around here at the Hotel Thompson. When something hits you, write it down as a ‘go to’ when you are least inspired. Keep writing my friend.

 

20130601-000648.jpgDear Bacon,

Sometimes one has to sit back, let it all out and meditate to take away the stress from the day. Do you ever do this? Signed Lemur Lips

Dear Lemur Lips,

Yes. I do meditate and I have even attempted piggy yoga at times. I’ve never let myself go as far as you have my friend. My tongue doesn’t stick out. Although you have quite an interesting and long tongue, I just don’t think mine would meet the standard. Keep destressing my friend!
