An Ode to High Blood Pressure, in 6 Words

Oh friends – you must check out this posting!! My great friend asked me to participate in six words again (I’m #35 today). Today’s theme is an ode to high blood pressure in six words. Of course, mine is “Being invited to the barbeque dinner”. Shivers – that can be dangerous for a little piggy… especially one that is say well endowed in the pot belly – double snorts. Be sure to check this out today my friends. AND many thanks to Eli for inviting me again – you’re the man! XOXO – Bacon

Just a dad ...

All signs point to summertime.

The pollen has subsided. Baby geese are now awkward goslings. The Cubs and Astros have clinched last place, and LeBron is one of the last men standing in the NBA playoffs. There’s more spaghetti straps and short shorts, I’ve noticed.

And of course – High-Blood Pressure Awareness month is winding down.

And not a moment too soon, I might add. I’ve wanted to blow my top at least 30 times in May – that’s an average of once a day. That’s a lot, y’all, for a guy like me. Things keep pissing me off. Like, when we run out of graham crackers, and it’s 3 a.m.

Shopping Around the World

My friend Fozzie and I have scheduled a group posting today of Shopping Around the World.   We thought it would be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over.

Here are our prices for the following from our area – Georgia USA:

  • Price of internet for one month.  We are pretty fortunate here at the Hotel Thompson.  Our monthly internet service runs us around $15.00 a month.  We run my laptop, dad’s i-pad, mom’s computer and mom’s i-phone off of it.
  • A pint of Ben & Jerry’s.  If you don’t have Ben & Jerry’s, post what you do have.  Ben & Jerry’s is right up there with Häägen Dazs here.  It runs about $4.00 a pint.
  • A six pack of Coca Cola.  Mom just bought some at the market last week on sale.  On sale, they run about $1.99 – off sale $2.99 each
  • Coffee.  Whatever brand you buy, just be sure to list the brand and size.  Mom and dad usually get Eight O’Clock coffee.  It runs $6.00 for a 12 ounce bag.  If they are lucky, sometimes they can get it buy one get one free.
  • A regular sized Snickers candy bar.  $0.80 each
  • Grooming.  🙂 Most of us anipals get groomed.  How much does it normally cost you to go to the spa?  Snorts.  The last time Mouse Girl (one of the purr things here) went, it cost $40.00 – :O  This was for a wash, cut, groom and dry.  She’s girly like that – PLOL (piggy laughing out loud).  The last time I went, I cost $25.00.  There’s not much to fluffing a pig – snorts.

Are you surprised at any of the prices above?  Do tell.  If you have suggestions for the next Shopping Around the World – please email them to me at
