Blast from the Past

08 Apr

 Mom is at it again cleaning out boxes in the garage.  She hasn’t done it in a while because of her back pain…. which by the way we found out wasn’t exactly back pain.  The pain was in her right hip, hurt to touch, she couldn’t lay on that side and was just horrid.  She went to the doctor and learned that it was Trochanteric bursitis.  Joy huh?  So she’s treating that and mom says thank you very much for everyone that prayed and was thinking about her.

But anyway, back to the blast from the past.  Anyone remember “You Sunk My Battleship!”  There’s a gazillion pieces and looks fun for me to drag all over the house but mommy says no touchy…. and that means the purr things here too at the Hotel Thompson!  Snorts.

Anyone want to play?   I call blue side!

    As a kid, the only thing I loved more than playing battleship was cheating at battleship! I would move those boats everywhere if it meant beating my older brother.

      It must have great memories. Daddy keeps walking around the house today muttering, “You sunk my battleship”. Hilarious – he better get over that before mommy gets home. He’ll drive her crazy! Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    I still have one of these and my grandkids think I was so poor and disadvantaged, because we didm”t have computers, iPad or iPods or iPhones.
    We sure had a lot of fun though.

    The original, and still the best version of Battleship! One time I lined up all five of my boats side by side. My opponent (I think it was my Grandpa) hit one, and then continued across the board, hitting as different ship each time. He couldn’t understand why after 5 straight hits he hadn’t sunk one of my ships yet. Of course, once he did realize what I had done, I was quickly toast!

      Wasn’t it so much fun?! Mom and dad played a couple of games last night. I tried to help out by stealing pieces – snorts. What can I say? It’s what I do. XOXO – Bacon

    oh Battleship! that game mostly ended in a disaster because the unhappy admiral, who lost all the ships, cried a river :o) Do you remember Mall Madness? Please give your mom a hug and I hope the pain goes away soon.

    Battleship! We still play it in the treehouse! It’s such a great game.

    • PigLove

      04/14/2014 at 3:06 pm

      I want a treehouse!! You know a real one. Way up high but it has to have a walk way and not a ladder because well you know I have hooves and can’t climb like that. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
