My Aunt Came for a Visit

08 Jan



So this past weekend, my Aunt Tina came home for a visit.  She lives near the the outskirts of Chicago in Illinois.  Right before she came home, they got a huge SNOW storm.  This is my cousin Sherlock Bones going outside to see snow and do his business.  First off, I can’t imagine snow this deep.  Heck, it’s hard for this little piggy to imagine snow period since I’ve never seen it.  Second off, thank goodness I have a wee-wee patch in my bedroom.  I just don’t see myself as a ‘going outside to tread through the snow to find grass to take a pee kind of oinker’.  I guess you could say that I’m a little spoiled like that.  Just a tiny bit.

So, Aunt Tina came home to get away from the cold and snow to find what?  Not snow but single digit cold.  PLOL (Piggy laughing out loud).  Way to go Mother Nature in turning a twist of bad luck.  It is funny though in one way evil twist of nature.  You see Aunt Tina used to live in Louisiana.  The only thing they had to worry about there were perhaps rain and hurricanes.  Now, well, I think this picture tells you everything Aunt Tina and her family think about this time of the year.

    OMP! Poor Mr Bones and the flamingo! I am totally fascinated! Keep warm and wear my cowl to bed if you like. 🙂

      Snorts – you saw that flamingo huh? I don’t think it’s pink anymore. I think it’s white as snow with cold – HA! Just so you know, daddy wrapped me up in my cowl yesterday while mommy was at work. I slept on the couch wearing it for almost 3 hours solid. Daddy finally woke me up cause he was worried. No worries – I was all nice and warm and surrounded by love from my Auntie Sharon 🙂 Love you! XOXO – Bacon

      Yep, he’s trained for outside business. I’m so lucky to have a place for my inside business. Poor Sherlock Bones must have frozen his well you know what off in that cold snow. So not for this little piggy! That is why my mom/dad plan their vacation in October every year – the perfect weather at the beach. XOXO – Bacon

        Snorts – I thought the same thing. His “transmission” has to be touching the snow. Shivers just thinking about that. XOXO – Bacon

    YUCK! Well, that is a load of snow for sure. We may have nine degrees this morning BUT no snow……..yet anyway……I’m glad I don’t have to go outside to potty too Bacon – I like my bathroom facilities to be heated!

    Hugs, Sammy

    • PigLove

      01/08/2014 at 9:09 am

      EXACTLY! My potty patch is always inviting in the safety and warmth of my bedroom. I just can’t imagine going outside in that type of weather. Yesterday we had single digits here. Today it’s barely 20 degrees. I didn’t even want mommy to go outside to go to work in this weather! XOXO – Bacon

    Looks like the snow is touching Sherlock’s belly. *shiver* I hate when that happens! Poor little guy. Stay warm, B.

    Love and licks,

    • PigLove

      01/08/2014 at 9:09 am

      Exactly. You know if it’s touching his belly well it has to be touching his most important parts. Can you imagine? No thank you very much. I’ll take my potty patch anyday INSIDE – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Poor Sherlock Bones….it is quite elementary that he shouldn’t be out there…at least not with a gps attached to him so when can find him!

    • PigLove

      01/08/2014 at 9:11 am

      Snorts! Too funny. He has to go ‘outside’ to potty. I think he needs a potty patch. XOXO – Bacon

    I grew up in a place where it used to regularly by 20 below and snow several feet at a time. My neighbor had a tractor with a loading bucket on the front. He would drag our driveway with the bucket so we could get the car out, but sometimes it would be snowing so hard that it would refill as he was dragging it out. I don’t live there now, but I still have family there.

      01/08/2014 at 9:12 am

      Oh dear Lord. I could not image that kind of weather. I guess I’m learning that I am definitely a sun-palm tree-beach kind of piggy. The only digging I want to do is in the sand 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    01/08/2014 at 8:56 am

    Your poor Aunt Tina, only to discover the freezing weather there too. At least she got to see you. Hope Sherlock Bones gets a little more potty space soon, that snow is colddddd!

    • PigLove

      01/08/2014 at 9:17 am

      Snorts. Tina thought it was a heat wave compared to Chicago. Poor thing. I’ll stay in my Hotel Thompson – I can’t stand the cold. I want snuggles and heat. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. You see where my weird sense of humor comes from now? It’s a long line of strangeness in the line. XOXO – Bacon

      YAY!! I knew there were benefits for not being an outside piggy. XOXO – Bacon

    That is a lot of snow, we wouldn’t like having to go do business out in that much snow either sweet Bacon. We don’t think flamingos are snow birds are they? That bird is all covered in snow. Hugs and snout kisses

    • PigLove

      01/08/2014 at 3:08 pm

      Snorts – I don’t think Aunt Tina’s flamingo is too happy either. That is cold. Cold like I don’t want to see – EVER. XOXO – Bacon
