Bashful is Back Home – YAY!

12 Dec

20131211-105628.jpg Bashful made it back to the Hotel Thompson from Australia!  

We all stayed up really late last night talking about his travels and misadventures.  OMP (oh my pig)!  He had a blast down under.  And like Las Vegas, some things that happened in Australia stay in Australia if you know what I mean – winks winks.

You’re not going to accept that, are you?  You want the juicy details of his wicked time with Bimby while making his short silent movie Rockadile Dundee.  I’m sorry.

I can’t tell you any of the juicy details.  Bashful said that a gentlerock does not talk about his ladies.  aaaww – I raised that little pebble right!



The little international rolling stone came home with some great treasures of his time spent with his host family.  The above left handed picture is Bashful in his suit that he wore to the wedding. What a handsome little guy!  He now refers to that suit as his 007 Rock Bond outfit.  What a riot!  He told me late last night that he wore his suit out one night when he took Bimby out for a date – 🙂

The picture to the right is of Bashful and his Australian outback hat.  What a looker!  And you see that item behind him?  That is a hand painted boomerang from Australia that came home with him.  I’ve already caught him throwing it around the house.  We’ve all learned how to duck really fast with that thing flying about.  And never fear about his cross eyed look in the picture.  I think he was slightly inebriated from the long flight home.  You know, they’ll serve anyone a drink these days in the happy air above.  I guess there is no ‘under age’ in the sky.


This picture to the left is of the other goodies that Bashful came home with that was in his luggage.  Stickers of all different things – Koala bears, snakes and Kangaroos.  Bashful told me that I could have some of them to put in our bedroom – I can’t wait to decorate my board.

And you know, they didn’t forget mom either.  See that fluffy pen in the picture?  It’s a Mickey Mouse pen!  It lights up when you write with it.  Mommy is in love with that pen.  I do believe she took it to the worky place so she can use/look at it every day.


Fozziemom and company was even so nice to send the purr things some treats.  Trust me, those little vultures jumped on that bag like it was crack!

20131211-105657.jpgAnd talking about crack – snorts.  See that can to the left beside the Koala pouch, Bashful is hooked on that stuff!  Mom/dad tried some last night and gave me a small bite.  OMP (oh my pig!).  It is GOOD!  No wonder that little Bashful couldn’t stay out of it.  It’s peppermint glory.

And you’re probably wondering about that Koala pouch.  It is the cutest little thing that zips up.  There was something amazing in that little pouch.  I’m getting too ahead of myself so you’ll have to wait for what it was. I promise to tell you.


20131211-105705.jpgAnd of course, we have to show a picture of the intellectual Bashful with his glasses on and sporting his hat.  Can you believe he went to bed last night wearing that?  And yes, he used his specks when he was reading to us out loud about his adventures in his travel log.

Can you believe that we also had a slide show of his side trip to Sydney?  Oh gracious – it was a hoot.  He visited so many places while down under.  I think we will be hearing about his tales for some time to come.

But, we are talking about the international rolling stone – my Bashful.  He will be home for a couple of more days and then he is off to his next host family and his next adventure.  Where will it be?  Only me and the next host family will know.


20131211-105724.jpgBut before he hops that plane, we had to take some family pictures of the “Rock Clan”.  There they all are on their sofa in their bedroom getting to know each other.

From left to right, they are:

Princess Coralena (from Hawaii), Mannie (from France), Virginia (from Virginia), Bashful and wait a minute – who is that?



May I introduce you to the newest member of the Hotel Thompson.  This is Rockelle from Australia.  She is in this picture wearing Bashful’s Australian hat and wait – what is that?  She is siding up with Bashful and they are a twosome?!  Stop the presses – Bashful came home with a girlfriend?!  And they know how to grow them in Australia.  She has the cutest little accent and look at that purple eyeshadow.  She has so woo’ed the little guy.

And you’re probably wondering about how Princess Coralena must be feeling about this.  Well, let’s just say there’s going to be a rock fight about whose rock Bashful really is.  I can feel it in my bones.  But Bashful, he’s a young tyke.  He needs to experience life right now.  He can always settle down when he hangs up his travel boots, right?

So, to Fozziemom and clan – thank you so much for hosting a great time for the little fellow.  I know he had an awesome time and will always cherish his memories with you in Australia.  You were great.

But the bottom question remains – where will Bashful end up next?

    Oh my he came home with another girl friend-and he already has one-oh my that little fella is headed for a huge rock fight.
    Hopefully he will choose one of the girls, settle down and raise a houseful of little pebbles.

      Exactly! But, I don’t think it’s going to be that easy. If looks could have killed, Princess Coralena would have shattered Rockelle when she saw her. WOW – it was a definite rocking on egg shells kind of moment the other night. They all played nice but it’s going to happen. The bad thing is that Bashful doesn’t have a clue to Princess Coralena’s feelings. She was playing hard to catch before he went to Australia. Life should be interesting here with the rock clan in the next coming weeks. XOXO – Bacon

    Bashful is becoming quite the ladies rock! LOL. On a serious note, castlemaine rock has been voted by my son as the best candy or lolly as we call it in the world!! We love it and we are glad you got the chance to try it.

      OMP (Oh my pig!) It’s insane! I caught mom/dad in that stuff last night. It’s wonderful! I know personally because mom gave me a small bite. She said I needed it – I’m not sure what she meant by that. But, it’s delicious!! XOXO – Bacon

    Oh how great is this? I like Rockelle, she is cute! I bet the new girl in Hotel Thompson will be the reason for some Rock n’ Roll :o) Please keep me informed, brother, that sounds like an upcoming rock avalanche :o)

      Oh it does my dear friend. The other night they were playing rock, paper, scissors. Which I thought was a hoot since well, they don’t have arms per say. Princess Coralena was winning every single time. This can’t end well. I just feel it in my pot belly – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Wow….Bashful REALLY shook things up Down Under didn’t he AND came home with a lot of great loot from his visit with Fozziemum and the entire family. He had quite a time AND he even came home with a new girlfriend? Things are gonna get ugly around there with Coralena and this new chickrock ! Can’t WAIT to hear where Bashful is off to next……!!

    Holiday Hugs, Sammy

      Trust me Sammy – it is how shall I put this – strange right now. We all know Princess Coralena has fallen for Bashful. Bashful doesn’t know it. It’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out. Especially knowing that Bashful is going to be headed off for a new place in the next couple of days. Oh me. XOXO – Bacon

    Bashful it’s wonderful that you ate back, and with such accessories! How much fun you must have had. So good to be a gentlerock, one must never kiss and tell 😉

    • PigLove

      12/12/2013 at 8:34 am

      That’s exactly what he told us about his adventures in Australia. He said he would say nothing bad about Bimby – a gentlerock would never do that. And we all know that Bashful thinks he has a little Carey Grantrock in him. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh goodness he is home and already causing a kerfuffle with Rockelle hahahaah she really did fall for him…not as bad as Bimby who sadly looks a little worse for the wear in my sewing room awaiting still the paramedics hahahahaha I am glad you got a taste of the ‘rock’ as gentle stitches says it is very popular with a great story..i forgot to print it out and send it with Bashful!! glad he is using his glasses and glad mum likes her pen….tell Bashful the Boomerang is for dad to round up any tucker in the bush if he goes camping hhaha thankyou again for letting us show him some Great Southern Land hospitality 🙂 love Fozziemum xxx

      12/12/2013 at 8:36 am

      Oh my friend – he had a blast! Daddy immediately fell in love with the boomerang… so did the rock clan. They were tossing it around the house the other night much to mom’s disapproval. She said if one of her old Tiffany’s lamps got busted, she was going to bust up some rocks. Party pooper. I want to see explosions – snorts.
      Bashful actually wore his little glasses when he read from his travel journal. I think personally he picked up a little accent while visiting. It’s so cute!
      And you were so right about that candy – yummo! Now I know why he couldn’t stay out of it – he still can’t! Thanks again for a great time my friend. XOXO – Bacon

        Snorts. Well there was a close call with boomer today. Dad tossed it and almost took down a Mickey Mouse. Sshh don’t tell mom. She doesn’t know. Can you imagine dad explaining that to mom – MM bit the big one!? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon 🐷😄

      12/12/2013 at 8:38 am

      12/12/2013 at 9:25 am

      That is true. I must talk to him about the stones and boulders before his next trip. Thanks for reminding me of that 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    Rockelle is beautiful, especially that lovely purple eye shadow. That Bashful sure knows how to pick ’em. 😉

    • PigLove

      12/12/2013 at 10:44 am

      Doesn’t he? I’m not sure who picked who on that Australian trip. Rockelle has the cutest accent and Bashful came home with one as well. XOXO – Bacon

    you know our Mom is an Aussie even though she lives in the USA now…..but she LOVES Castlemaine Rock…she has been thinking about it for weeks and couldn’t remember the name and there you have a picture of it……now she has to zip an email off to her siss to get her to send some 🙂

    • PigLove

      12/12/2013 at 10:47 am

      That stuff is crack – in a good way might I add 🙂 We opened it up the other night because Bashful kept whining about wanting some. It was delish! Mommy said it freshened my breath – I’m not sure what she meant by that. It is fantastic! XOXO – Bacon

    I love that Koala pouch, so cute.The sort of pouch I would love to own too. Thanks for sharing

    • PigLove

      12/12/2013 at 1:36 pm

      It is the cutest little pouch. I think mommy is going to use it – you know of course when Rockelle doesn’t need it to hide if you know what I mean – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    • PigLove

      12/13/2013 at 9:21 am

      He did get a couple of days of rest. But I think the little guy knew he was in deep trouble here with Princess Coralena and Rockelle. I can’t believe my pebble has grown into a manrock and has lady troubles! Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      Thank you Nylablue and Mum – hogs and snout kisses. He had a ball in Australia. There’s no telling where that rolling stone is going to end up next. Rockelle is the looker. She made it through customs so I’m hoping all of her papers are in order. I know she’s giving Princess Coralena a run for her money. XOXO – Bacon 🐷


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
