Blast from the Past

Oh yeah – give me some classic Football.  This is another one of mom’s cherished childhood games.  Can you believe that daddy actually had one as well?  He doesn’t know where his went – but leave it to my mommy who.saves.EVERYTHING.  This game actually came out in 1977.  I think it’s a fossil now – snorts.

I checked this out on EBay.  They range from around $30.00 to $150.00 now new.  Can you believe that?  All of these ‘classics’  are making a come back.  Mommy didn’t even like football when she got hers as a child but she said she played the heck out of that thing!

Did you have one?

Baby Pictures

Snorts.  Some people have asked me what I looked like as a piglet.  I went through my baby book and picked up some pictures to share.

This is a picture of me when I first came to the Hotel Thompson.  It was taken the day my mom and dad adopted me.  I was three weeks young here.  I immediately fell right to sleep in my mom’s hands on her shoulder.  I couldn’t help it.  I felt safe and loved.  Once upon a time, I was this small.  All cuddly.

I think for the first three months in my life, the only time mom put me down was to sleep, to eat and to use the potty.  I guess that was my baby stages huh?  Notice how small my snout was – it was itty bitty.



This was a picture of me eating some of my baby food.  I had a mixture of baby food, formula and chow mix here.  This was when I was a little bit older – probably around 9 weeks.  I stayed small for a long time.  Heck, I’m really small considering today’s standards.  I weigh in today at 48 pounds.  That is small considering that some miniature pot bellied piggies get to over 100 pounds!


This picture to the left is of my nana holding me.  She called me the original piggy in a blanket – snorts.  I guess I was for a while.  And trust me, I ate this attention up just like a… well an attention hog.  Hey, it’s what I do right?

And I know you are dying to know what was the first picture mom saw of me that reeled her in, aren’t you?  Mom saw these two pictures of me and fell in love instantly.  There was no looking back.  I had her wrapped around my hooves immediately.  Here you go:

Can you believe I was that small?!  Squeal!
