Bashful Made it Home!

27 Jan


Bashful sweet Bashful finally made in home to the Hotel Thompson this weekend.  He came riding in on his skateboard that he got for Christmas at Misaki’s.  He was tired, had jetlag  and had a LOT of explaining to do on his travels back home.  I let him get some sleep but told him we needed answers.

Over breakfast this morning, he told us that he had an awesome time with Misaki and family.  He spoke of fun playing cards, riding his skateboard down some ramps, getting some beer and seeing some sights.  He also said it rained a lot more there than here in south Georgia – snorts.  He has memories that he will never forget and so much fun!



And he brought home some gifts. 

A piggy coaster that reads, “The best way to behave is to misbehave”; some seaside rock candy in the star (really delicious!); some Percy Pig candies (I can’t get enough of these!); a wonderful keychain to remind me of my travels and a pink piggy tote bag.

Thank you Misaki so very much for the treats, the kindness of hosting my Bashful  and showing him a great time.  I think he even came home with the cutest little accent!  I am so jealous of it. He has definitely gotten the rock girls heads turning here at the Hotel Thompson with that accent – snorts.


AND, Bashful came home with a friend.  Misaki said he was “sweet but slightly dim”.  I think they got into great trouble traveling together on the way home.  It could account for his interview with Rolling Stone magazine – snorts. 

May I present to you the  newest member of our rock clan – Benedict Cumberock.

      Benedict was a lot of company to Bashful on the way home. I think Bashful was showing off to him on the way back and that’s why they got sidetracked. XOXO – Bacon

    Welcome home Bashful…remember: There’s no place like home!

      You got that right!! I think I will enclose some ruby red slippers for him on his next trip. That way all he has to do is click them together three times and repeat, “There’s no place like home”. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. Don’t let his looks fool you. I think he’s a mastermind at winning you over. He has mom wrapped around him already. Rolls piggy eyes. XOXO – Bacon

    Phew!! So glad they made it home, probably Benedict mixed up their flights or lost their passports 🙂

      01/27/2014 at 9:42 am

      Snorts – that could be. They came rolling in together on their skateboards. I guess they thought they were Tony Rocks or something. XOXO – Bacon

    Sweet bling! Benedict hardly looks like a potato at all…. *gulp* and those eyes! Whoa. Welcome home, Bashful.

    Love and licks,

      Benedict has a LOT of character, trust me. He talked so much Saturday night that I had to keep getting on to them about going to sleep. He just kept jabbering away. XOXO – Bacon

    I know Bashful had fun visiting Misaki BUT there really is nothing like being home sweet home. What a wonderful pile of fun goodies he brought home too! Benedict looks like a real character – no wonder Bashful was in a bit of trouble on this journey!

    Hugs, Sammy

    Glad you made it home Bashful! Benedict is interesting. At first I thought he was a Yukon Gold potato.. shhhh.

    • PigLove

      01/27/2014 at 9:45 am

      Snorts – I’m going to tell him you said that. That is so funny! He does kind of resemble a Yukon Gold. Anybody else wanting french fries now? Snorticles. XOXO – Bacon

    Bet you’re going to have to sleep for a month Bashful. Perhaps best not to tell all 😉

    • PigLove

      01/27/2014 at 10:53 am

      Snorts – he told me that some things that happened at Misaki’s stays at Misaki’s. That’s normally how his travels are. He reveals just enough. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts – I love that – CPR – that is too funny. I’m sending you some hogs and snout kisses to the both of you. I think Bashful is going to be home a couple of weeks before he leaves out again for destinations unknown. The rock clan has a little special they are putting together. It should be interesting to say the least. Stay tuned! XOXO – Bacon

      Snorticles. I understand completely my friend. My mom has been watching Sleepy Hollow on television. One of the main characters came out wearing his knickers – oh dear piggy heavens. I thought mom was going to pass out right there on the front room floor. I don’t get it. I see daddy wearing his knickers all of the time. It does nothing for me. Those humans. They are a crazy bunch that are so hard to understand. XOXO – Bacon

      Thank you Auntie Sharon. I kind of missed the little tyke. He’s got some photo ops that he has to do. Can you believe a local restaurant wants to see him? Should be interesting. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
