Where in the World is … ?

Do you know Waldo?  Do you recognize the iconic red/white striped shirt, the matching bobble hat, those glasses?

Waldo is based on a series of children’s books created by British illustrator Martin Handford.  Books have pictures of numerous different types of people as illustrations with Waldo thrown into the mix somewhere.  Readers of the books are challenged in finding Waldo – thus Where’s Waldo?  In the USA, we love to find Waldo.

In fact, true story – one time mom and my Aunt Tina stopped in a Hooters I believe somewhere in Louisiana.  They were eating, not much drinking had started – snorts, when Aunt Tina spewed beer all over mom laughing.  After mom wiped off, Aunt Tina told mommy three o’clock.  If you didn’t know, that’s girl talk for look to your right but do it without being too noticeable.  Mom looked at her three o’clock and almost peed in her pants from laughing.  A guy was sitting all alone at a high top table and looked just like Waldo – all the way down to his red/white shirt and glasses.  It was too much for them.  They couldn’t stop laughing.  Aunt Tina actually took a picture.  I’m so going to have to find that picture to share with ya’ll.  It was a snort of a good time for those two in Hooters.

You’re probably asking yourself, “Pig, why are you talking about Waldo?”  Well, I’m glad you asked my friends. This brings us to the most important question of the month – okay maybe not the *most* important but close to it.


Where’s Bashful?  That’s right.  Where in the World is Bashful, my international rolling pet stone?

Bashful has taken flight to his next undisclosed secret destination host family.  Where will he go?  What troubles will he find?  What misadventures will he get into?

His time at the Hotel Thompson was cut short this layover.  I think there was a lot of tension in the air between Princess Coralena and Rockelle fighting for Bashful’s affection.  I think Bashful just wanted to get away from both of them to think about what he wants in life.

This time is interesting.  Both ladies are being very polite right now.  We shall see what this separation does for all of them.

So, Where in the World is Bashful?

Dear Bacon


Dear Bacon,

It’s really not what you think.  Honestly.  I was just surfing the net and this came up.  I really wasn’t looking for this kind of well activity.  Honestly.  Signed Captured

Dear Captured,

Let me get this straight.  Your um doggy activity just ‘happened’ to show up on your laptop… and the headphones just ‘happened’ to be on as well.  Okay my friend.  Whatever gets you through the night – snorts.



Dear Bacon,

The humans, they insist on me wearing jammies to bed.  What we do for our humans, right?  Signed Pampered

Dear Pampered,
Enjoy it my friend.  If it makes the humans happy, then we are in a good spot.  Not a lot of others have the life that we have.  We should live it up and take advantage of all the love the humans want to throw at us.  Enjoy it!



Dear Bacon,

Nobody knows the stumbles I’ve made in life.  I’ve got it bad.  Some days I just don’t know about my life.  I tend to ‘hit’ the can too much these days and pass out while drinking.  I think I have a problem.  Can you help?  Signed Squirrel Anonymous

Dear Squirrel Anonymous,

Admission is the first step my friend.  And you do realize that you have a lot of friends to help you through these tough times.  Life has to much to offer and you have too much to live for than to hit the can and sleep through it.  I’m sending you Journalist Rocky the Squirrel’s number.  Call him.  He will help you out.


Dear Bacon,
You know us pit bulls get a bad rap.  They tend to categorize us all in one place saying we are mean spirited.  That’s like saying all mice are icky.  Would your mother think that about Mickey Mouse?  People shouldn’t judge all of us because of a couple of bad instances.  Don’t you think?  Signed LoveBug

Dear LoveBug,

You said it exactly my friend!  How could anyone think that you were a ‘killer’ by that picture all snuggled up in your bed with your security penguin?  Such wise wisdom that we should share with everyone in the world.  No judgements – just love!



 Dear Bacon,

See, Bashful is not the only one that can pick up chicks.  I do too – purr.  This is my friend Gloria.  I give her rides everywhere we go.  Isn’t she pretty?  Signed Felix


Dear Felix,
You *are* the purr thing my friend.  That is awesome that you pick up ‘chicks’ and give them rides.  I bet you are very popular on the farm.  Have a fantastic time with your friends.


**Remember friends – send your pictures and questions to me at
