I’ve Created a New Season – Happy Sprinter

31 Mar

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!

    That’s true it’s sprinter! Good word for that weather-circus, brother! We have that effect vice-versa, first it was cold and dark but suddenly yesterday it became as hot as in hell. I bet tomorrow when we wear t-shirts and shorts it will change again :o)

      I think you’re right. I can’t stand this in between stages of Sprinter. After the hibernation of Winter, I’m so ready to get move a little and run. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. I am way over winter. Winter was cold. I hibernated and ate a lot. I didn’t run and I didn’t have fun. Now, I need Spring. Time for play… and of course more food. XOXO – Bacon

    Sprinter is a good word!! You’re so inventive, sweetie! 🙂

    Oh and you know what!? Spring is playing tricks on us too. We have cold days and then really warm days… It’s soooo ANNOYING!! 😦 (*sigh*)

    Happy Sprinter, Bacon! 😀 xoxo Roxy & Tigerlino ❤

      Happy Sprinter Roxy & Tigerlino,
      Mother Nature sure needs to get her act together. I need some Spring. I’m done with this hibernation stuff. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh no just lost my comment to a Mac Attack. We think Sprinter is brill. We think a boot up the butt is well called for. Best part was some extra snuggles in bed. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly.

    Just a quick one, we don’t want to offend but this has happened many times before and we feel obliged to say as we know replying to comments takes so much time. We don’t see them unless we revisit a blog from the day before etc etc. Therefore wasted on us. Not sure if it is the same for some of your other followers. Maybe you want to ask as we found out the hard way the no one ever saw our replies.
    Best wishes Molly

      I wonder if that’s because you are on blogspot and I’m on wordpress? I’m going to so have to inquire about this. Thanks for the heads up and letting me know. XOXO – Bacon

      Shivers to mergatroid. This weather has so got to figure itself out. Do you know yesterday morning when mommy went to the worky place it was in the 30’s here, damp and cold. When she came home, the temperature was reading over 90 degrees in her care! Really Mother Nature? XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon are you overcoming your aversion to nature? you seem to be spending lotsa fun times out in your magical back yard. I so wish I lived next to someone called Big Daddy, that is so cool, I guess I will need to move to the south huh?

    • PigLove

      04/01/2014 at 8:55 am

      Snorts – that’s one of the great things about the south. The giving of some really nice people. Mommy has known Big Daddy since she was minnow. They have kind of adopted my mom/dad and vice versa. They are wonderfully nice neighbors. We do a lot for each other back and forth. In fact, mom and dad were over at their house last night talking for a long time. XOXO – Bacon
