I’ve Created a New Season – Happy Sprinter

This picture is from Wikipedia.  It shows the typical seasons – Spring, Summer, Fall and then Winter.  That’s the way it’s suppose to fall.  But this year, dear old Mother Nature is not playing fairly.  Mommy says she needs hormone shots and daddy says she needs more dates with Father Time.  I’m not sure which one is right.  I just know that maybe she needs a kick in the butt.  Yep, I said.  I kick right smack in the middle of her captains quarters.

You see, this weekend is what I’m talking about.  Saturday here at the Hotel Thompson we get up and it is beautiful.  There’s no other way to put it.  The birds are chirping (and that’s a story for another time – snorts), the sun is out, the wind is just right and the temperatures are in the 60’s.  You couldn’t ask for a more gorgeous day.  Mom and me went out to wash her Smart car Albert.  It only took less than five minutes by throwing a cup of water at it – snorts.  I kill myself.


Our neighbor Big Daddy had cut our yard and the back yard was spectacular.  Thanks Big Daddy!  We went out there and ran for a while.  Mommy says it was for me to get some sun and I said I understood.  Secretly I knew she wanted me to run some excess Winter weight off so I would sleep more deeply tonight.  I’m good with that.  I just wonder why she didn’t make daddy do the same.  Double snorts.

It was a wonderful day.  Lots of running, loving and snuggles.

Then BAM!  What a change Sunday.  Sunday brought us rain, cool weather and strong winds.  We could actually sit inside and hear the winds!  We all got up and had breakfast together.  It was so damp and yuck outside that after breakfast, we all went back to bed.  Now, I’m not hating days like this because usually, like this day, when we go back to bed we all get on the Select Comfort for a siesta.  It was great.

Picture this.  A king sized Select Comfort bed with two humans, two purr things and a piggy.  Snorts, I’m a 65 with mommy on the Select Comfort.  Daddy and the purr things are a 100.  That’s just too hard for this little oinker.  When we got up from our nap, it was still yuck outside.

Now, I’m telling you all of this for a reason.  It’s suppose to be Spring but it still acts like Winter.  I’m suggesting a new season called – Sprinter.  You get it?  Spring with Winter.  So sometime today, tell someone Happy Sprinter.  Then smile and remember my little story here.  🙂

Happy Sprinter my pals!

Poor Mommy

Such a simple little word – BOO.  Three letters that hold a lot of power and oomph behind it.  But, I’m getting ahead of myself snorts.  Let me start from the beginning.

Mommy has had a terrible time the past couple of weeks.  She went left and her back went right and it ‘popped’ out.  As she told daddy, her giddy up had a catch and I mean a BAD catch.  It happened on a Saturday about three weeks ago.  Mom and dad went to the market for their six month shopping trip which is an all day ordeal, store after store stocking up for half of the year to fill up the pantry and freezer.  It’s a blessing to do this but the day is LONG.  But secretly, I think mom and dad enjoy it to the max and have a great time.  That’s my personal belief and I’m not hating the six month trip because this is the time they stock up on my treats to from the club house 🙂

At the end of the day though, mom was pooped.  Walking on all of that concrete all day long caused a nitch in her back.  It started off with a mild limp on her right leg.  Then it moved to her back side.  Mommy stayed on the heating pad on the sofa for a long time that weekend.

Come Monday,  it was still ouchie.  She went to her chiropractor for an adjustment several times that week but to no avail.  The pain was excruciating.  So much so, that daddy and me had to help her off of the couch.  Mommy said she felt like she was 102!  OMP (oh my pig!)

So finally she went to the regular doctor.  They gave her some medicine that she took starting the third week.  Finally – some relief!  She still had a hitch in her giddy up but now it was a small limp instead of walking like t-rex throughout the house.  All was getting better.  This past weekend, she was even able to get off of the sofa without assistance from me and dad.  I was going to get my mommy back – squeal!

So Sunday night mom tucked me into bed, told me my bedtime story and went into their room to get ready for bed.  There she was standing near her dresser and taking her night time medicine.  Daddy was in the bedroom with her and mom saw him – no biggie.  Then out of the blue – daddy said :

It wasn’t loud.  It wasn’t harsh.  It was just a matter a factly.  He does it all of the time – not a huge thing.  Usually mom would just say, “Is that all you got?” and they would just laugh about it.  But not this night.  I learned a couple of things this night.

1 – Mom can jump really HIGH for a girl.  I was amazed.  There’s no way I could jump that high – darn my pot belly – snorts.

2 –   Mom can take a joke and she laughed it off.  Daddy though – I have to admit that he was laughing so hard that he almost had water running down his leg.

3 – This is the most important.  Guess who is back to square one with their back hurting again?

I told you – my parents are ridiculous and that is saying it mildly.

Running out of Thyme

Leave it to my mom and dad to come up with something so stupid that it’s funny.  They went to the market yesterday and came home with this picture.  Shakes piggy head.  They really need help.  Professional help.  How can I trust those two out by themselves?

We May Have a Problem

This morning started off normal.  I got mom up for breakfast like I do around 6:30AM.  I ate and mom she was a little different.  She didn’t fix her cereal and eat with me.  That was odd.  Then it happened.  Mom went into the fridge to get cream for her milk.  That’s what started the uh-oh we have a problem situation.  Instead of putting milk into her coffee, she put orange juice in it.  I tried to tell her but she had her eyes closed.  Very strange.  But don’t worry.  Once she tasted that coffee, they opened up pretty quickly.

Then, after she remade her coffee, we went into the front room to cuddle and watch the morning news.  Usually we do this for about 20-30 minutes before she starts to get ready for work.  But today, mom fell asleep.  Okay – don’t fuss.  I fell asleep too.

So there we were, asleep on the sofa.  All peaceful.  Dad was asleep in the bedroom still.  We were all in sleepy land until this awful ringing started.  It was mom’s personal cell phone.  She got up to get it and in her dazed state, she answered by saying the name of her work.  Snorts.  It then dawned on her where she was.  Assure me that your humans have done this too.

Thankfully mom’s cell phone rung because it was now after 8:00 AM and mommy has to be at the worky place at 9:00 AM.  WOW – talk about a race with the clock.  I’m not sure I have ever seen mommy move this fast.  She raced to the bathroom for her shower and I went and got daddy up.

Getting daddy up is always a treat for me.  Just imagine and let me paint you the picture.  Your asleep in your bed, snoring and dreaming of delightful things.  All of a sudden a little pig walks into your room snorting.  I walk over to the side of your bed in full force bunting you with my snout and pulling at your blankets.  Yeah, I know.  Snorts – it’s not dad’s favorite way to wake up.  He kept asking me why I was still up?  Cause you see, after breakfast mommy usually puts me back down in my room for a early morning nap.  With me getting daddy up, he knew something was wrong.

He put me down, mom raced out of the bathroom like she was on fire and sat at her vanity.  The next thing we knew, mom the tornado left for work.

But I’m telling you.  We may have a problem with mom at work.  She didn’t start off too well this morning.  I just bet you that she is working really, REALLY hard right now at her desk – NOT.

OMP – 3 Pigs and a Baby

OMP (oh my pig!)

Where has the movie been all of my piggy life?  I found this movie, 3 Pigs and a Baby, on Netflix last night.  It was released in March of 2008 and I *just* found it.  Okay, I’ll give you that.  I wasn’t born in 2008 but still.  Any movie about pigs, that seems to be right up my alley, don’t you think?

For movie night last night, we all watched this movie and I have to say it was hilarious!    I’m not sure who laughed the hardest, me, mom, dad or the purr things.  Have you seen this?!  I give it five out of five snorts.  It keeps you on your hooves with laughs, turns and twists.

The movie starts with part of the ending and then tweaks back to how it got to this point.  You are asking what point?  Well in the opening shot, the 3 little pigs are all tied together, hanging upside down over a boiling pot of water in the wolve warehouse.  That’s a scary way to start the movie huh?

Then the story flashes back to what got the 3 little pigs to this situation.  It goes through the original story.

The big bad wolf goes to  Sandy Pig’s house made of hay.  He tells Sandy Pig to open the door.  Sandy Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin.  The big wolf then huffs and puffs and blows the house down.   Sandy Pig then runs to his brother Richard Pig’s house.

The big bad wolf then goes to Richard Pig’s house made out of sticks.  He tells Richard Pig to open the door.  Richard Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin.  The big wolf then huffs and puffs and blows the house down.   Richard Pig and Sandy Pig then run to their brother Mason Pig’s house.

The big bad wolf then goes to Mason Pig’s house made out of bricks.  He tells Mason Pig to open the door.  Mason Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin.  The big wolf then huffs and puffs and blows the house down.   But wait a minute, he can’t because the house is made of bricks.  The big bad wolf is determined to get inside of the house of bricks so he climbs up to the chimney.  His plan is to go down the chimney and thus he will be inside of the brick house.  In the meantime, the 3 little pigs build a fire.  Well, you can guess what happens.  That big bad wolf won’t be huffing and puffing anymore – snorts.  

But, that’s when the story takes a huge left turn and becomes a snort of a completely different movie.  In fact, this movie has more twists and turns than a roadtrip in the mountains.  Those big bad wolves are not giving up in getting those oinkers.  They plan on infiltrating into the house of bricks by leaving a baby wolf in a basket at the doorstep in hopes that Mason, Richard and Sandy Pig adopt him.  After some convincing, the 3 pigs adopt little “Lucky” as their own.  Lucky has no clue that he’s a pig, he just knows he’s different.

Lucky goes to school at Pigville Academy and all is fine until he begins to be a teenager.  Then he finds out he’s adopted – snorts.  He learns that he is a wolf raised as a pig and he was adopted by Mason, Richard and Sandy Pig.  Uh-oh Houston we have a problem.

Lucky runs away and finds the big bad wolves.  They convince him, “To be a wolf , you have to be head to toe in fur, claws, and a… meat eater of gulp – PIG.”  Oh no… this is not going to end well.  They convince him that he needs to hide the key to the brick house under the mat on the harvest moon so they can take care of things… things that are a secret that they can’t talk about.  Lucky agrees – thud piggy down!  And later the big bad wolves convince Lucky that there will be a surprise party for his dads so he has to leave the key under the mat.

The Harvest moon comes and by this time, Richard and Sandy Pig have re-built their homes and moved out of Mason’s brick home.  Mason and Lucky get into an argument and Lucky rides off on his motorcycle but not until after putting the key under the mat.  And the Harvest Moon – it’s a sign for the big bad wolves to start their hunting season.  So here we go again.

The wolves go to  Sandy Pig’s house made of hay.  They tells Sandy Pig to open the door.  Sandy Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin.  The wolves huff and puff and blows the house down.   Sandy Pig then runs to his brother Richard Pig’s house.

The wolves then go to Richard Pig’s house made out of sticks.  They tell Richard Pig to open the door.  Richard Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin.  The wolves then huff and puff and blows the house down.   Richard Pig and Sandy Pig then run to their brother Mason Pig’s house.

 The wolves then go to Mason Pig’s house made out of bricks.  They tell Mason Pig to open the door.  Mason Pig says not by the hair on his chinny chin-chin.  The wolves then huff and puff and blows the house down.   But wait a minute, he can’t because the house is made of bricks.  But wait a minute, why huff and puff when you can just use the key under the mat to get into the house.

So here we are, right back to where the movie started.  The 3 little pigs are tied up and hanging over a huge pot of boiling water.  This is when the pigs find out that Lucky was planted in their home to get the pigs eventually in time.

At the last minute before the 3 little pigs are dunked into the hot boiling water, Lucky comes flying through the warehouse window on his motorcycle and saves his three dad’s.  Of course the wolves aren’t happy about this and they take after the 3 little pigs who are headed to the brick house.  A fight of sorts begins and things go a little hectic until Lucky makes a big speech.

After Lucky’s speech, the Pig Wolf Pact is signed dedicating pigs and wolves to a life of peace, love and understanding from here on out.  And Lucky, he was lucky.  Not only did he get three fathers with the 3 little pigs, he also got the adopted family of the wolves.  All is good again in Pigville.

What a sweet and wonderful movie.  I must buy this for my collection so that I can watch it over and over.  It touched my little piggy heart and made me smile and snort.  You gotta watch this movie!

REMINDER – Movie Night with Bacon


We have movie night here at the Hotel Thompson often.  Every once in a while, I get to choose the movie. 🙂  It’s always a fun time when I get to because you just never know what I’m going to pick.

One week, I picked a scary movie.  Of course, I hid behind mom on the sofa behind her back and only peeked with one eye opened at the television screen occasionally.  Snorts.  It’s what I do.

But the other day, I found the bestest of all movies.  I don’t know how I’ve never seen this one before!  It was great.  It was wonderful.  It was right up my alley.  Nope, it wasn’t Charlotte’s Web or Babe – nothing like that.

So get out your popcorn and your soda and come back here tomorrow.  I’m going to break down the movie for you.  🙂  It should be a blast!
