We Have a Mystery Here – Help Friends

23 Aug


We have a real mystery here Scooby Doo.  I need all of my crime solving friends to come help please.  The biggest mystery has happened this week here at the Hotel Thompson.  Dad’s favorite t-shirt is missing.  Gone.  No where to be found.  MIA.  No forwarding address – disappeared like it was in a magical act.

Like every Friday morning, dad gathered all of the laundry around the house, including his favorite t-shirt, for the wash.  He does the same thing every Friday.  Nothing unusual there.  Clothes went in the washer and later he transferred everything to the dryer.

That’s when the mystery started.  After all of the clothes were folded and put up, he couldn’t find his favorite shirt.  I do say *his* favorite shirt because mommy can’t stand it – snorts.  She says that there are more holes in his favorite shirt than in Swiss cheese.  That’s a lot of holes.  He says it’s comfortable and he loves it.  Once upon a time, it had a picture of his old college – Georgia State University.  But, he’s worn it so much that the picture has faded and it has become really ventilated.  He even tries to wear out in public.  Mommy says that people are going to think that she doesn’t clothe him or he doesn’t have any other clothes.  He just laughs at her and tells her she doesn’t understand.  Does your human daddy do this?

He calls mommy at our normal 3:00pm timespan when I wake up from my afternoon nap.  He tells her about his favorite shirt being MIA.  He’s actually heartbroken!  Of course, she feels his pain but secretly between you and me, I think she was jumping for joy in her office that it was gone.

 I kept sniffing around the house trying to find it all afternoon but no luck.  When mommy came home, she had to look for it before she could even start dinner.  I helped her with the search by following her around the house and giving her guidance and encouragement.  You know a snort snort here – a snort snort there.  Okay, it was almost comical but we had to be somewhat serious to help daddy out.

It was time for me to put on my sherlock costume and do some real investigation with mom.  Our first place was the laundry room where the crime took place.   Since she was tall, she checked out the washing machine while I did more ground work around the washer and the dryer.  We both came up with nothing.  WOW – it’s like it vanished in mid-air.  Nothing – no clues at all.  This is weird.

Then we went to the bedrooms.  I followed her like the faithful sleuth I am as her sidekick snorting all the way.  She checked the closet as I checked the floor and bed areas.  Again, nothing at all.  We just looked at each other in wonder and awe – maybe secretly grinning because said t-shirt had found a way of its own to disappear and neither of us had anything to do with it.

But all of this searching, had my pot belly rumbling.  I snouted mom’s ankle and gave her my pleading ‘feed me before I shrink and wither away’ look.  We called off the search to start dinner.  Hey, a pig has to eat to keep up this investigations.  After dinner, we would regroup.

Well, that was the plan.  It just didn’t work that way.  I ate too much – who would have guessed that?  I needed some major snuggle time with mom on the couch.  My belly needed to be rubbed and I needed a power nap.  Well, needless to say we both got comfortable and fell asleep on the sofa together.




I really need some help my friends.  These are the last known pictures of dad’s favorite t-shirt.  Have you seen it??

Oh and by the way, the remote control for the television in the front room is also missing.  This is quite a mystery we have here at the Hotel Thompson.

    It will turn up in a most unexpected place. You did line your bed with it did you?

      Nope. It is a real mystery. Both the t-shirt and remote. It’s like they both got sucked up into oblivion. Thank goodness all of our televisions in the house work on the same remote or dad would be past the panic mode by now – snorts. He is just ‘borrowing’ my remote for my television. And, I specifically oinked to him don’t lose it dad!

    What a wonderful. helpful little pig you are to have around Bacon. I am SURE it will turn up. Shirts don’t just disappear. I has to be somewhere! Perhaps the other critters dragged it somewhere?

      I’m thinking it’s in the place where the missing socks go, you know? Me and mom looked further around the house this morning. I’m just not sure where it and the front room remote are. While mom is at the worky place, I’m going to put my Sherlock outfit back on and do a little snooping around. Do you think aliens took them? XOXO – Bacon

    Hmmm if it’s anything like our house then our Mummy’s Mummy will have thrown it away! If she doesn’t like something of Daddy’s it has a mysterious disappearance!

    Happy Friday and whee hope it turns up!

      Snorts. Mom has threatened – jokingly – to get ride of it. But honestly, she didn’t do it this time. She was at the worky place. It *has* to be somewhere in the house. But, I’m thinking that maybe aliens came down and took both items back with them. You know for research. XOXO – Bacon

      That could be. I’ll have mom put out an all points bulletin at work for a remote and holey t-shirt walking down the street – snorts. XOXO – Bacon


    08/23/2013 at 7:04 am

    What is with men and their old, holey worn-out t-shirts?! Lol! My husband has a few himself that he adores. Good luck on the search.

      Exactly! Mommy can’t stand it. She doesn’t mind him wearing it around the house and yard but out on errands in public – snorts. She throws a major pig fit. Daddy doesn’t get it. He says it’s “comfortable” and she doesn’t understand. Rolls piggy eyes. XOXO – Bacon

    I “misplace” things (especially food when I can) often. My Mamma always says the house doesn’t steal, it hides (sometimes, especially with food, she’s wrong). We hope they turn up – hang in there buddy!

      Snorts – well my friend, the house is doing an exceptional job at this point. It is a real mysterious as to where those two items are. AND, it’s getting to the weekend which means I need my remote control back for ‘my’ television in my room. A pig has his priorities, right? XOXO – Bacon

    I think this calls for some research in the Time Life Mysteries of the Unknown books! I wouldn’t rule out spontaneous combustion or it being abducted by aliens….

      08/23/2013 at 9:44 am

      EXACTLY! Aliens probably entered our house and looked at all of our valuables. They noted dad’s t-shirt and thought that it was the most valuable because of the holes in it. That’s it! XOXO – Bacon

    Well, sweet Bacon it sounds as if that remote put on your dad’s favorite tee shirt and took off. lol Wish we could help but we have no idea where else you could look. Hugs and snout kisses

      I understand my friend. I’m exhausted from searching all over the house this morning. I just don’t know where it could be. Maybe they will turn up this weekend. I really hope so! XOXO – Bacon

    Has anyone checked with Hemi? Those cats can be kind of sneaky. My human mommy lost her passport once. She looked everywhere and took everything out of every drawer but nothing, so she got a replacement. (She’s always scared to death that she’s going to be detained because she has a replacement passport!) Then one day she opened a drawer that she had searched and searched and there was that old passport just sitting there. Freaky!

      It has to be. They are still MIA. We all searched tonight after dinner. Nothing. It’s getting really strange now. You mark my words though. I am going to find them this weekend. I am so on the case! XOXO – Bacon

    They will both turn up unexpectedly. We just found a lost thumb drive and missing eye drops here. They had been placed in an odd spot. I bet the shirt and remote are found together. One of our feral adoptees, “Nicky”, is really good at search … I would send him over, except that the 2nd part of “Search” is “Destroy”… lol

    • PigLove

      08/23/2013 at 11:22 pm

      PLOL. I bet your right. They are probably keeping each other company somewhere. And they are probably laughing at us.
      Search and destroy huh? That could come I’m handy in certain situations. I’ll keep that in mind. I may need to borrow your purr thing one day. Ha ha
