There’s a yearly tradition that we do here at the Hotel Thompson that I thought I would share. It’s nothing difficult, really simple if you will. Mom/dad have done this for years and as they say, “If it ain’t broke – don’t fix it!” I thought I would share with my friends here in blogville because one can never have too much of good luck, right?
On the 31st of December before midnight, place money outside on your porch. It can be a loose bill, change, or in an envelope. This stays on your front porch. Before midnight, everyone goes outside of the house.
At midnight, you open the front door and throw the money in over the threshold. This should be the first thing that crosses your door. This represents money coming into your home for the new year. Remember, you don’t step into the home until after the money goes in.
I’m not sure where mom/dad got this from but they have been doing it forever. I mean heck, we’ll take all of the help from everywhere we can, right? Happy money tossing tonight my friends 🙂

Was I ever surprised with this years results. It could have only happened with all of my friends here in blogville. Thank you for reading along and supporting this little piggy in his mission of making people laugh. Here’s a toast for an awesome new year in 2014!!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 30,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Don’t ask. It was a dare. Those stupid cats think they know everything. They dared me to do this. I did. They took pictures and now it’s all over the You Tube thingy. And, I can’t get down. Help. Signed Limbo
That is quite the predicament you have there my friend. I guess you could say your in between a rail and a staircase – snorts. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t snort. Perhaps take the challenge and just jump down. Once you are down, find those purr things. Revenge is sweet. Wishing you the best.
I got the coolest gift for Christmas. I’ve been wearing these and freaking people out in the home and while walking. Aren’t they just awesome? Signed Bug Eyes
Dear Bug Eyes,
Snorts – I absolutely *love* them my friend. They are so cool. I can just see the people you pass as you are on your constitutional walk with your humans. So much fun!!
The humans. They are the strangest people. The little knee high human was blowing what they call bubbles at me. These things were fascinating. I couldn’t get enough. They floated in the air but when I touched them, they went away. Have you ever seen this witchery? Signed Impressed
I have never seen them in all of my life. Your little knee high human must have special powers. I would be hesitant around them and walk the line. What if they trapped you in one of those bubbles? hhmm – this is just most strange to me. I must research this more with my human daddy. Be careful my friend.
Today, I will be on the computer most of the day – just like those humans. But, I don’t get it. This computer is doing nothing. Signed Confused
Okay, let me explain this to you my purr friend. You don’t *sit* on the computer to be ‘on’ the computer. You sit in front of the computer and type on the keyboard to surf the net. Understand now? Try it. You’ll be surprised of the world out there at your claws.
I am SO with you on your Christmas tree escapade last year. I understand completely. The tree got tired. I’m saying the same thing. I walked by it and it fell. It had nothing to do with me looking at the pretty shiny ornaments. Shaking head – nothing at all. Signed Busted
Oh dear kitty. You see with at least my ordeal, I didn’t stay in the room for a picture. You my friend got exactly what it is – busted. The proof is in the picture. Next time, flee fast on those little legs and act like you are asleep. Not that I know from experience, but that might help your cause next time.
Remember friends – keep the questions/pictures coming to me for my weekly Tuesday Dear Bacon issues. You can send your questions/pictures to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com
