National Popcorn Day

19 Jan


Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”



Today, January 19th, is a great day.  It is National Popcorn Day.  This is a wonderful day that we can all enjoy and nip our teeth into – literally.  I know my kind loves corn and I know that little piglet in the Hotel Thompson loves the popped corn.  Some people believe that the origin of this day is somehow connected to the Super Bowl.  I guess it kind of makes sense since they’re all kinds of bowl games on right now.  I know Bacon’s daddy is in football heaven.  

Let me tell you story about Bacon and his love of popcorn.  That little oinker can be all the way in his bedroom playing around and watching his television.  But the moment that he hears the corn kernels hitting the pan in the kitchen, he totally loses it and runs through the hallways skidding into the kitchen.  He will sit on the floor in the middle of the kitchen and watch his mommy as she pops the corn over the stove – you know old fashioned like.  When it starts to pop-pop-pop, he always walks over and hits his mom in the ankles with his snout wanting some.  He knows he’s going to get some but he doesn’t have a lot of patience that little guy.  And then when he does get some, he sounds like a little chomping machine.  He’s a hoot.       

Enjoy the day my friends.  I’ll be back soon!

    Well that sweet porker deserves all of the popcorn that it is safe for him to eat.

      Snorts. Oh I do. I think it’s because I like it that the purr things here like it too. It’s great stuff and mommy says it cheap. I’m not sure what that means though. XOXO – Bacon

        “Cheap” is one of those human terms that as far as I’m concerned only means the sound that birdies make. Period. When it comes to ME and MY needs, “cheap” isn’t in the picture! HAHAHAHA

        Hugs, Sam

      You too brother! I think we are going to pop some and watch this show called Treemasters on the Animal Planet. It’s about a guy that builds tree houses all over the world. Some cost over $250,000! I keep getting thoughts on the one I want. I’m still trying to win daddy over but he just laughs at me and says, “In your dreams”. XOXO – Bacon

        Oh, I know that saying, brother. Sadly no one writes out a check in our dreams and if, I’m not sure if I would cash this kind of checks LOL btw: I know the perfect one and only tree for a treehouse. I will visit this area next week to take a photo…

    Well Bacon…you and Mac the scotty have the same taste for pop corn. He like you bolts from his room at the sound of the first ‘pop’…. and pleads for the corn !!! Would ‘love’ to see you two together at the popcorn bowl chomping away!!! Oh, by the way, Mac’s first sweetheart was a little ‘piggy gal’ named Daisy. She was in the run next to his at our favorite pet ‘hotel’. Ahhh…it was ‘love” at first sniff!!
