How I Got Back on Mom’s Good Side

20130929-143320.jpgJust imagine you are on a date with your spouse and then your cell phone goes off with a text message.  You know by the sound of the ring that it’s from one of your kids.  You go to look at it and WOW – it’s a text from ME – Bacon.  Who could stay mad at this little oinker for long?  Especially when I’m giving you a heads up about free coffee!  Mommy is a sucker for coffee.

After mom and dad’s date they did go to Dunkin Donuts.  Mommy didn’t get the free coffee.  She got the pumpkin white chocolate latte.  She said it was delicious.  I wouldn’t know because she didn’t give me a taste of it… BUT, she did bring me some donut holes. 🙂

So, that is how you get back on mommy’s good list.  She drunk her coffee while I was in her lap getting snuggles.  Everything is back to being good at the Hotel Thompson.

Oh, and what?  Doesn’t every pig have an iPhone?  It’s only the 3G that mom used to have but it still works for these emergency type situations – snorts.

Happy Last Day of the Month

Happy Monday my dear sweet friends.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend full of rest and relaxation and lots of great food!  We had a little bit of cooler weather here this weekend and I absolutely LOVED it.  There’s just something about the coolness of the air that makes this little oinker want to run!  I went out in the back yard with mommy and we played for a long time together.  We took turns playing tag and chasing each other.  I think I finally wore mommy out – snorts.  She sat on the ground and that’s when I hit her like a football player.  We just sat on the freshly cut grass, snuggled and baked in the sun.  It felt good.  I admit I liked it.  But don’t go telling a lot of people okay. 🙂  20130929-141408.jpg

I admit it went down hill after Saturday morning.  Deviled ham came out and I got into trouble.  I learned my lesson because yesterday I had to pay the time for the crime.  I hate that – it interferes with my snuggle time with mommy.  I don’t like it when mommy ignores me.  But we made good yesterday afternoon. All is now well at the Hotel Thompson.

Today is the last day of September and the spooky month of October starts tomorrow.  I wanted to give you a heads up about October.  October is going to be a busy month for this little piggy.

I skyped a witch and she even saw me in her crystal ball.  Even she knew I was up to something before mom and dad did.  You see,  I’m going to have 31 days of Spook on my blog.  I’m personally going to highlight scary movies, television shows, legends, monsters and other things that go bump in the night.  I might even quiz you on some of them so be prepared.  Start brushing up on your trivia.  I hope it will be fun for everyone.

Second off, the parents are trying to go to the beach in October so they are looking for a pig sitter for me.  I’ve told them that I’m old enough that I don’t *need* a pig sitter but mommy is insisting.  So they are taking interviews – snorts – this should be fun.  I do hope they let me sit in for this so called interviews.  I’d like to give my two cents on the unfortunate soul person they choose.  I wonder what my witch friend that I skyped saw about this situation?  Snorts.  Of course, I will keep you posted.

So, happy last day of September my friends.  Welcome to Spooky October!  Evil snort

Trouble – Sigh



Okay, I admit it.  I get into trouble from time to time.  I’m a kid.  It’s what I do, right?  And, don’t we *all* get into trouble every once in a while?

Look at this cute, innocent ever so loving face.  Could I get into trouble?  You’re not falling for it either, huh?  I know daddy gets into trouble here at the Hotel Thompson. 

 One time mommy told daddy to get air conditioning installed in his dog house because he was going to be there for a while.  So, it happens.

So, yeah, I got into trouble.  As mommy says here at the Hotel Thompson, “You do the crime, you pay the time”.  I got my share of being in dad’s dog house yesterday.

  It went like this.  Mommy was in a clean mode.  I thought I would help her behind the sofa.  Well, I’m not as small as I used to be.  I got stuck.  After mommy stopped laughing at me because my hiney was stuck in the air, she got me out.  I might have barked back at her.  She stopped laughing then and told me that I was bad.  I really hate that word.

Then, she started vacuuming.  I might have – and that’s a really strong might have – tried to attack the vacuum cleaner.  Mom said that three lettered word again – bad.  She told me that I was pushing ‘it’.  Insert cute little piggy face here.  Pushing “IT”?

Okay, so I waddled into the unlocked kitchen by myself while she finished up in the front room.  I still couldn’t get over that she told me that *I* was pushing it.  So I did what any pig would do.  I knocked the kittty chow over that was in the chair.  Food was raining down from the heavens!  That Iams is some great stuff and I was pigging out…. until mom came into the kitchen.  Uh-oh.


Do you know how hard is to wrangle a pig that is chomping away on something that he’s not suppose to be eating?  Snorts – near impossible.  Just ask mom.  I had a great little buffet in the kitchen until she picked me up.  Then the squealing commenced.

That was enough to get dad’s attention who was in the bedroom.  He asked mom what I did as she was taking me to the bedroom.  Her reply, “Go look at the kitchen.”  Let’s just say that dad’s colorful words are very imaginative adjectives.  I learned a lot of them yesterday.

So, mom put me in my room and told me to serve my time for the crime.  Yes I was naughty.  Yes I knew exactly what I was doing.  Yep,  I pushed mommy’s buttons.  And, I have only one thing to say about it.

How can get away with it next time without getting caught?  Snorts

Friday’s Foto Fun – The Fugitives

The Scottie Chronicles - Winston's World

bashful on the lamI’m not stupid enough to post my whereabouts. The authorities would surely find us if I did. It may look like we’re still on the grounds of Sing Sing. But, dear readers, I assure you, we’re long gone.

Yes, Bashful and I have taken matters into our own paws – it’s OK,  I’ve got paws enough to share with my visiting pet pebble. No worries there.

Saturday Funny!

Remember way back when you used to get up to watch the cartoons on Saturday mornings while you’re parents slept?  Nah?  Shakes piggy head.  I don’t remember either – snorts.  I just hear mommy and daddy say that a lot around the Hotel Thompson.  There’s no cartoons on Saturday mornings anymore.  AND, the Cartoon Network doesn’t show any good cartoons anymore.  Am I right?

So, in honor of the old Saturday morning cartoons – I’m going to attempt to make you chuckle and smile with some jokes.  Are you ready for this?  Here we go:

I saw two dogs walk over to a parking meter.  One said to the other, “How do you like that?  Pay toilets.”

What is the scariest type of dinosaur? A Terror-dactyle

Why did the turtle cross the road? To get to the shell station!

What do you call a blind dinosaur? A Thoughtusawus.

Two caged circus lions break free and corner a clown in his dressing room. One lion says to the other, “Forget it, those things taste funny.”

PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).  I hope these gave you a chuckle.  I know they did me.

We’re Bustin’ Out

I wonder what kind of trouble they will get into? XOXO – Bacon

The Scottie Chronicles - Winston's World

bashful and bunnyI’ve had enough of being in the slammer.

Bashful, whadya say we bust outta here?

You may remember that Bashful and I have been confined to quarters for my little “let me show you the ropes” display of why not to walk in the road when the peep’s cutting the grass. It wasn’t pretty.

So, let’s just be on our way. I’m already out the front door.

Don’t worry, Bashful, your sedentary peeps will be here when you get back. That little bunny and I have been friends for a long time. He and that stoic Scottie will hold your place of honor while you’re gone.

By the way, that Scottie is a lamp. Let him light the way to our breaking out of Sing Sing of the South.

What You Learned Today:

  • If you’re just joining us, Bashful’s been visiting me for a while. He’s Bacon’s friend. And Bacon…
