While Bashful was on vacation with mom/dad at Tybee Island, he had the best of time. Do you remember that little breakfast place that mom/dad liked so much called The Breakfast Club? Well, Bashful fell in love with it as well. He wanted to get a job there so he could stay on the island forever. He went for an interview but well he didn’t talk too much and there really wasn’t a need for a traveling international stone so he didn’t get the busboy job – darn.
So instead he overlooked the kitchen help at the grill as they prepared mom/dad’s meal the last morning they were on vacation. Don’t let his stoic look fool you. He was worse than Gordon Ramsey from Hell’s Kitchen to those workers at the grill – snorts. But he finally did whip them into shape and mom/dad got their wonderfully delicious breakfast. It was a sad breakfast knowing it would be some time before their next return.
After that heavenly breakfast, everyone decided to walk down the streets of Tybee one more time for memories sake.
Bashful got a little freaked out when he saw this picture of a shark on the side of the building.
Heck, he rolled like an avalanche back into mom’s pocket so fast that her shorts almost fell down – now that would have been a sight!
But Bashful didn’t have anything to fear – it was just a giant shark advertising a business. A business that I might add had some wonderful trinkets and fun things in it from the beach.
Yep, that mom of mine – she likes to shop – snorts.
And of course, no good-bye is complete without walking down the pier and telling the ocean farewell.
Bashful went a little too far though. He threatened to jump if mom/dad didn’t stay just one more day longer on their trip. Well heck, what could they do? They couldn’t have Bashful jumping off the pier – he can’t swim! He sinks… like the Titanic. The poor thing – I never taught him a fundamental important thing like swimming. And mom, she couldn’t go in after him, she can’t swim either!
So, they had to do what they had to do. Stay one more night. Way to go Bashful. I wonder if I threaten to jump off the couch, would I get my way in anything? hhhmm – I’m off to practice before mom gets home 🙂

Bashful sure went to extremes to get them to stay!! I think I’ll stick to ‘puppydog eyes’ though

I know, right? If he would have jumped, we would have never gotten him back! The little player. XOXO – Bacon

You met Mr Ramsey?! How cool my friend. I would love to meet him one day – but far, far away from the kitchen! XOXO – Bacon

That would be pigawesome my friend! He’s seems like rather a delightful guy away from the kitchen. XOXO – Bacon

I am sure it’s the same with a lot of chefs Bacon! I worked in kitchens for years and with many chefs with worse tempers and less talent 😉 hugs Fozziemum xxx

That is true. You know I like to be mom’s sous chef when she cooks. You know every once in a while if I’m good, she tosses me something that she’s working on that is always delicious. I guess that’s where Bashful gets his sous chef skills from. He’s a block off the old rock here – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

He must be Bacon..he seems to like it in the ‘foodhole’ heheheh 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xxxx

Bashful you make me a little weak in the knees being that close to the water. One little slip up and your Mom or Dad or both woulda had to be in that water trying to find you! You need a little teeny life jacket if you are going to be around big water.
11/18/2013 at 9:56 am
Good point. I’ll have to get one made for Bashful before next year’s trip. Mom said if he would have jumped, it would have been over for my little tyke. I can’t have that happening! XOXO – Bacon
11/18/2013 at 9:35 am
You need a lifejacket, Bashful. I have one too… in case I will get wet feet :o)
11/18/2013 at 9:57 am
Well, it’s settled then. I’ll have to order him one before mom/dad take off again next year. Can you imagine mom/dad jumping in after him?! We would have certainly heard about that on the afternoon news here. XOXO – Bacon

I’m glad they did it. Otherwise you had to hire Mr. Hasselhoff for every holiday..

That little Bashful of mine does have a way of wrapping people around his stony self, doesn’t he? I’m not sure where he picks that up from – whistles and looks around innocently. Its not like *I* would try to wrap anyone around my hooves – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
