Dad and Bashful Met a Celebrity!


You know I really need to speak with mom and dad about some of their activities.  I think in some ways it’s just not fair that I can’t go ‘out and about’ with them on some of their adventures. I’m not green with the jealous monster – really I’m not.  But I would like to meet some of these celebrities too.  Even Bashful has gotten into the swing of things.

They were all out the other day and got to meet a famous celebrity that we often watch on the television.  In fact, we sing the show tune a lot of the times, especially when we take baths.  It’s just catchy and you can dance to it.  What can I say?  snorts

I hope you enjoyed the celebrity pictures.  Have you ever met a celebrity?  Who was it and where?

Running of the Bulls

WOW – This is all this little pig could oink this past weekend when I saw some coverage of the Running of the Bulls. Really? People really put their lives in jeopardy to run through the streets of Pamplona, Spain chased by B.U.L.L.S with HORNS. I gotta ask. Are you crazy?! This is not only for one day but it is a annual nine day festival.

I understand it is a tradition. The first thing they do is take a statue of San Fermin and parade it through Pamplona. This saint is believed to ‘protect’ the runners as they are being chased by the mean bulls. And, it really did look festive on television. They even had musicians playing and singing. And they had people standing on balconies throughout the streets that watched the bulls chasing the humans. Now, I enjoyed the music, the singing and I could even watch.

But, this little pig doesn’t run that fast to participate in the running FROM the bulls – snorts. I would be a nice little snack for them. Shivers. And the actual bull run lasts about four minutes – but still I don’t think this oinker would have a chance.

So instead of ‘running’ from the bulls, I thought I would do it ‘my’ way 🙂

I carried my king size Egyptian cotton sheet from the bedroom into the frontroom. At times, mommy would hold it for me so I could run through it. You know, like she was fighting a ‘bull’ per say. She would call me a pigatador – snorts. It was fun and kept me busy for some time. Even daddy got into the game playing and would hold it up for me.

It was really fun. I’m not sure who it wore out faster – me, mommy or daddy. Even Hemi, the purr thing here at the Hotel Thompson, got into the action and would run through it. What can I say – we are so easily entertained!
