The Valentines Date to Remember

 You voted for it and the two winners were Benedict and Rockelle for their hot date on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014.  The day started off with a lot of primping, planning and excitement.  Manny and Bashful helped Benedict get ready for the day as Princess Coralena and Virginia helped Rockelle.

The day started off with the exchanging of some gifts.  In the picture to the left, Benedict gave Rockelle a special box of chocolates telling her how he feels.  Notice, “You Caught My Eye” was written on the box.  Nice touch Benedict!  In the picture to the right, Rockelle gave Benedict a red hot love ducky because she went quackers for him.  Nice touch Rockelle.

.

Then, it was time for dinner.  Mom and dad researched a lot of restaurants that would be unique for the happy couple.  Something that touched both of them in

a different way.  Something that made them think of their homelands.  You know since Rockelle is from Australia and Benedict is

from the United Kingdom.  A place maybe they didn’t have from their birth places but something  that was unique to the United States.  Then the light bulbs went off in their heads and they knew of the perfect place.  Reservations were made and mom/dad (AKA the chauffers for the night) then bundled the two up for their romantic dinner.

Yep, that’s right.  They went to Hooters on Tara Boulevard.  The night started off with some shots in the picture to the left.  After a few shots, Benedict and Rockelle loosed up a bit and started talking about their feelings for each other.  In the picture to the right, you can tell that there was a magnetic pull to each other.  Perhaps love was starting to erupt?

. They did a few shots to loosen up – you know liquid courage.  Hooters is a great place that plays a variety of different music.  Once they were loosed up, they were rocking to the music.  Benedict asked Rockelle to dance.  They did the electric rock slide and the pebble shuffle… you know instead of the two step or twerking.

.

.

After the shots and all of that dancing, they thought they might need to get something on their stomachs.  You know drinking without eating makes one light headed and who knows what would roll around then?  They started with some buffalo shrimp.  Who needs utensils?  It is finger food so they both dived into the plate.  Benedict was such a gentleman and actually wiped some sauce off of Rockelle’s face.  Of course the proper way would have been by using a napkin instead of using his tongue.  But she seemed to like it.

.

Both liked fish so they decided to order the big fried fish sandwich.  It was enough to share.  And there is a reason that it’s called the big fish sandwich.  Do you see how big that fish is? This was certainly one that didn’t get away and was a keeper.   Benedict started on one side and Rockelle started on the other side.  They met in the middle.  And the little round things are tater tots. It’s often been said that Benedict looks like a potato so it isn’t a shocker that he absolutely loved the tots.  20140216-182219.jpg

20140216-182230.jpg And Hooters, they are known for their wings.  Yeah, that’s right. They’re known for their delicious wings.  They got some of those to try as well.  What’s a great night out if you don’t have lots of food.  And they were there for several hours getting to know each other.  The wings were fried, breaded and medium – mmmm – Rockelle loved them.

And, of course there is one more thing you have to do when you are at Hooters.  I’m not sure if you are familiar with this restaurant.  The staff is wonderful, gracious and very out going.  They were wonderful to Benedict and Rockelle on their special date night.  And since this was their first time at the restaurant, they wanted to give them a memory in a picture.  So, they all decided to have their picture taken with the special couple.

 20140216-182240.jpg

Notice the two in the picture.  And the girls were gorgeous.  But after the photograph, Benedict assured Rockelle that she was the beauty and he only had eyes for her.  aaww – way to go Benedict!  20140216-182249.jpg

 After they left Hooters, they didn’t want the date to end.  They decided they needed something sweet.  And again, Benedict came through.  While they were in the back seat, mom/dad overheard Benedict tell Rockelle there was nothing they could get that would be sweeter than her.  I think by this point they were holding hands as well.

They decided they wanted ice cream so mom/dad (AKA Chauffers) took them to Baskin Robins where they enjoyed a scoop of snickers ice cream.  By this time, they wanted to sit at a separate table from mom/dad so they could talk by themselves.  Mom and dad heard a lot of giggles so it seems they were getting along great.

20140216-182257.jpgDate night must have went really well because the next morning, Benedict and Rockelle were seen in the kitchen sharing a heart shaped doughnut.  This special date night might be the start of something fabulous – maybe even a great relationship like Bogey and McCall.  One never knows.

So friends, pat yourselves on the backs for a wonderful twosome.

I would like extend a special thank you to Mike Fiely the manager at Hooters and his wonderful staff located at 6785 Tara Boulevard, Jonesboro.  Ya’ll really helped this little piggy out in making this special date night one to remember for my pet rocks.  I would say, “You Rock!”

Do a Grouch a Favor Day

 

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

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

.

 

February 16th is Do a Grouch a Favor Day.  Do it today and make the world a better place!

Everyone has been a grouch at some point in their lives.  Some people are ocassionally grouchy while others maintain that grouchy attitude all of the time.  You know who they are.  Sometimes people get grouchy because they are tired, had a bad day and the weather outside is bad.  It doesn’t take much sometimes to put people in a grouchy mood.

Today your goal is to look around for someone that is in a grouchy mood.  Do them a favor that will cheer them up.  Hug them.  Lick them.  Be nice to them.  Bring them the paper.  You know – do something nice for them to see if you can see a smile on their face.  You can do it.  I know you can!

It’s the Cops

 Snorticles.  This is funny on so many different levels.  I could *so* see Hemi, one of the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson, doing this.  What am I speaking of?  That cat does look like Hemi.  I’m off to talk to him about this. So this must be what he does when mom/dad leave the house.  I see some blackmail coming in his direction.

 Happy Saturday my friends!

Get A Different Name Day

 

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

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

 .

February 13th is Get a Different Name Day – This day is created for those who are not fond of the name given to them at birth.  It wasn’t our choosing.  Rather, our parents bestowed it upon us.  If you like your given name, fabulous!  If NOT, then today is the day to take advantage of it and change your name for the day.

What will your new name be?  I was bestowed the name of Rockford Pygmy Sciuridae.  I know, it’s a mouthful.  That’s why I go by the name of Journalist Rocky the Squirrel. 

Bacon’s full name is Bacon Porkchop Thompson.  I interviewed the little pig and asked him what he would change his name to for the day.  The little chap has a sense of humor.  He had a few and here are some of them: 

  • Brad Bacon Pitt (He thinks he can get Miss Piggy with this name)                         
  • Bacon Bond 003 1/2   (The pig watches too much James Bond)
  • Kevin Bacon (Even I rolled my eyes on this one)
  • Hamm (He said he wanted to try another breakfast meat – that pig!)

What would your name be for today?  I would love to know.

Bacons Tales of Terror

Welcome to my 13th Tales of Terror.  Today I have a really good one for you.  I hope you are brave enough to read it… and survive without wetting your pants – snorts. Today, I’m going into a different direction that I hope you enjoy.  This past weekend was so beautiful that we actually went outside on the back deck of the Hotel Thompson and spent some time around a firepit.  Don’t worry about me – I was safe with my mommy around the fire – snorts.  But as we were out there, campfire stories started to be told.  I thought I would share one that scared this little oinker beyond belief.  Buckle up your belts.  It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

There was a family that lived in a huge antebellum home in the south.  They had two adorable children that were elementary school aged, a little boy and a little girl. The parents thought they would go out on a date – something they had not done in a very long time.  They called a friend of theirs that had a teenage daughter that offered babysitting services.  She advised that she would love to sit for them on their date night.

The date night came and the babysitter came over.  The husband and wife went over all of the emergency numbers and schedule with the babysitter.  The husband advised her that with the house being so huge, they would prefer her to stay in the play room.  The play room was huge with everything you could image.  A big screen television, a satellite, computers, games, etc.

After the parents left, the babysitter played with the children for a while and then it was bedtime.  She got them settled in their rooms and told them stories to help them go to sleep.  Afterwards, she went down to the play room for the remainder of the night.  

She settled in and looked around the room.  In the far right hand corner, there was a children’s rocking chair with a clown sitting in it.  She shivered.  The clown was scary.  It seemed to watch her every move. No matter what she did, the clown just seemed like it was watching her.  At times, she thought it was moving.  But it couldn’t, right?  It was just an ugly scary looking clown.  She couldn’t figure out why the couple would have it but then again this was a play room so each to their own.

   Finally, she couldn’t take it any longer.  She called the father on his cell phone and asked him if she could move to another room because this clown was freaking her out.  The father told her to quietly get the children, get out of the house and go next door to the neighbor.  What?  She didn’t understand why but she did what she was told.  A few minutes later after getting to the neighbor’s house, she saw flashing lights and police cars arrive at the house she just came from.  What in the world was going on?

A few minutes more passed and then the parents of the children came home and immediately came next door.  She was so confused.  She asked the father what was going on next door.  That’s when the dad told her the news that still shakes her to this day.  For weeks, the children had been having nightmares about waking up and seeing a scary clown in their bedrooms watching them.  The parents thought it was just that – nightmares.  And then when she called about the clown in the play room watching her, they knew the nightmares were not nightmares but actually true.  

You see, they didn’t have a scary looking clown doll in the play room.  The scary looking clown was actually a little person dressed up like a clown that had actually been living in the huge antebellum house for weeks waiting for the right time to kill the family.

Icemageddon – You Win

20140212-133443.jpg

That’s right. You read it correctly. ICEmageddon. Let’s just say yuck and eeww. You know what comes along with ice? No power. Nods piggy head. We have been without electricity since 8:30am. Translation. This little piggy is shaking like waves in the ocean. It’s freezing here inside of the Hotel Thompson. We can also hear tree limbs falling in my magical backyard and sirens outside.

Jack Frost is definitely nipping at my snout. Stop it Jack. And I don’t want to say its cold outside but Frosty the Snowman has already knocked on the door twice wanting to come in.

Oh Dear Lord. Someone come save me please. Shivers to mergatroid.

We Have an Emergency

20140112-011841.jpgHELP!

This is an emergency.  I’m out of Cheerios.  I’m out of Gold Fish.  I’m out of carrots.  I’m out of marshmallows.  What will I do?  I’m going to shrivel up to nothing. My pot-belly is going to disappear.  What will become of me –

THUD – I will *not* survive.

This is me begging mommy to go to the market.  She laughed at me.  Can you imagine that?!  My bowls were empty and mommy was laughing.

She went into the kitchen and started pulling magical things out of the cabinets.  Of course, there were no carrots but mom found all of my other favorite things.

Sigh – that was a close call my friends.  So very close!
