Bashful came home from Virginia!

01 Nov

 I’ve been a little late in getting some thank you outs and letting everyone know about Bashful.  It’s been crazy here at the Hotel Thompson my friends.  Please forgive me in my updates about my traveling pet rock.  Bashful spent some time in Virginia with Stuart at .


 Bashful actually got home the day before mom/dad’s vacation to the beach.  In fact, he kept us all up late into the night telling us of stories of visiting pigs, running away to a fair and watching Stuart ride a ferris wheel – I bet that was awesome!

He also spoke of getting into trouble with Stuart in his backyard and getting too close to the roadway – Bashful – shame on you!



Poor Stuart – when Bashful first arrived, his humans were a little under the weather.  So I guess that accounts for some of the trouble they got into.

Bashful is such a sweet international rolling stone.

But, I’ve noticed that he has picked up some wicked ways in his travels.  Tomato weed bong smoking in France and now in Virginia scotch on the rocks.  My little rock is growing up so fast – at times I think way too fast!

Bashful came home in a box full of surprises much to my amazement.  There were note cards with scotties on them to remind us of Stuart, pig cards (aaww) and the cutest little pair of piggy salt/pepper shakers.  OMP (Oh my pig!)  Mom was thrilled and squealed like a little piggy herself – it was too funny.  I can’t begin to thank you enough for hosting my little pet Bashful.  He had the bestest time!  I really appreciate you taking him in like he was one of your own and showing him a great time.




And you know, Bashful picked up a friend in his travels.  This is Virginia – check out those beautiful green eyes and red lipstick.  Everyone says that a girl can rule the world with red lipstick – I know she will here at the Hotel Thompson.  She’s already captivated Manny from France.

Thanks again Stuart my friend.  I’m sorry it took me a while to publically thank you. You rock!


And where will Bashful end up next?  I will tell you that he was so carefully helped into mom/dad’s suitcase when they went to the beach.  Darn… okay I admit it – I helped him stowaway but that’s a story for another day – snorts.

Other than the beach, where will he go next?  His list is long here at the Hotel Thompson.  The next person has been notified and after a much needed rest this week, hopefully he will be put on an airplane this weekend.

My, where in the world will Bashful land?
