Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April. We asked for all of you to post prices on certain items in your part of town. We are going to do it again this month on Wednesday, July 30, 2014.
Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine. That way we can keep track of all of the different prices.
It should be interesting to see the differences between. Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.
Since it’s summer, we are going with some summer items – YAY!
- Toilet Paper – this should be really interesting. Note what kind you buy with how many rolls and the price.
- Regular package of ground beef.
- Store bought pizza. Note what kind you buy with the price
- Package of hot dogs – Note what kind you buy with the price
- Package of bacon – this really hurt to type – snorts. Note what kind with the price.
Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars Wednesday, July 30, 2014!
If you have suggestions for the August issue, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you so very much my friends for participating in my first Bacon’s Show and Tell yesterday. It was such a great joy in seeing everyone’s different favorite toys they had as children. They brought such good memories to us here at the Hotel Thompson as I’m sure you had as well. A special shout out to my Cousin Sammy for filling in for me yesterday. I really appreciate your help Cousin! I can’t say thank you enough for looking after Bacon’s Show and Tell.
Let’s mark our calendars for Thursday, July 31, 2014, to have our next Bacon’s Show and Tell. This time though, let’s highlight that one toy that you really wanted as a child but you never got while growing up. I’m sure we all have that one thing we dreamed about but never showed up at birthdays or Christmas. On Thursday, July 31, 2014, let’s get that one toy finally and talk about what it meant to us.
Now as for me being PMIA (piggy missing in action) yesterday. WOW – could it have been a longer day for us here at the Hotel Thompson? Mommy took off work – that should have been my first clue that something was amiss during the week – especially on a Monday. Are you ready for the breakdown? Snorts – tighten your seat belt here we go.
First up – may I present to you Albert – mom’s Smart car. He had his “physical” yesterday. Yep, I said it – physical. The good thing about a Smart car is that you can go 10,000 miles before an oil change. It counts it down for you and let’s you know when you need to take it in for a change. Great perk. Down side – it takes synthetic oil and costs more than normal. But like mom said, once every 10,000 miles makes it only getting an oil change around once a year. And I bet you didn’t know that my mom comes from a long line of grease monkey’s. She has been known to change her own oil – go mom – but not on Albert nope. She hasn’t tried although she’s watched videos and wants to attempt it one day. (And speaking of working on cars, snorts, mom has to tell you about a story with daddy on that one day). But I digress. So after Albert’s oil change, mom has to reset Albert to count down another 10,000 miles. Why? Because the professionals don’t know how to reset him. Rolls piggy eyes. Really? And you call yourselves professionals – snorts.
Second up – I had to go for my yearly “physical”. Joy. Yay. Super. What a fun time. I’m going through a shedding phase – which is normal. Mommy neglected to write this on the family calendar. I wonder why? Surprise for the piggy? Sure why not. It really wasn’t that bad – not considering. My vet, Dr. Corine, is wonderful and she smells great. What I don’t like is the waiting room. Dr. Corine is an exotic pet doctor. There was a snake as a patient in the waiting room yesterday. You trying to give this piggy a heart attack? Mr. Snake stayed to himself but my mohawk was up on my back. Shivers. And I might have – stress MIGHT – have peed on the floor. Okay – I was a little nervous. Who wouldn’t be with that anaconda in the room with me? I’ve seen videos of them eating my kind. Shivers. But I didn’t have to wait long before Dr. Corine took me back for my “physical”. She went down the list – eyes clear, temp good (don’t even ask – and no she didn’t buy me a drink first!), teeth good, ears good, hooves good – mom’s been doing great at keeping them trimmed. Then we got to the weight. I weigh a whopping 48 pounds. WOW – I’m a pig – snorts – literally. I’m healthy. My pot belly is not over abundant and my face is not puffy. But do you know Dr. Corine had the nerve to tell mommy to watch my weight?! Watch MY weight. Really? Stomps hooves. As if. I am a miniature pot bellied piggy. I have standards to maintain Dr. Corine. Bite me. Snorts.
🙂 So that’s why I was PMIA yesterday. Of course after my “physical”, guess who else had their physicals? Yep, mom and dad. I think I heard mom say bite me too – snorts.

Hello my friends. Welcome to another great issue of Dear Bacon. This week, we have another guest helping me out with my issue. Today, my friend Forrest and Fozziemom are stepping in for me to do a special edition of Dear Forrest. Be sure to visit them at their blog and check them out – let them know what a great job they did – thanks Forrest and Fozziemom!
Save a horse, ride a piggy – BOL. This is my gal pal Susie. The other farm animals think we are crazy. We are. Crazy in love! Do you think it’s cool? Signed Sam and Susie
Dear Sam and Susie,
I think the other farm animals are jealous…inter species can work…even if it does seem a bit odd. You loves who you loves so I say go for it! And yes it is way cool!
Since they added the word “selfie” to the dictionary, we thought we would try it. We think it’s a work in progress. Have you tried this? Signed Say Cheese
I must say I have tried selfies myself and it always ends up with booger shots..or drool. I think you have the crazy eye down pat though. Keep it up. I have seen some pretty bad human ones BOL BOL
They say you can be anything you want. I wanted to be a pineapple. What kind of fruit would you be? Signed Piney
Well if you want to look like Camen Miranda then I say I like it veryyyy much. As for me, if I had to be a fruit I would be a banana. Then I could split whenever it got too much BOL BOL
Dude. The beach is so totally awesome. The water is rad. Do you hang five bro? Signed Surfer Bark
Dear Surfer Bark,
Man you are hangin’ more than five my friend. You might take off if them ears get any more steam behind them BOL. I hang 5 in the dam. It’s usually followed by mum landing flat BOL …wonder what that counts as BOL
I look fat. Maybe it’s my ears? Maybe it’s that bunny tail? Maybe it’s the beer talking from another bottle down? Can you help out a bunny? What do you think? Signed Fatbun
I think you are standing in front of the wrong mirror my friend. You look fine to me..nice and plump and round and delish…oops I mean fine. Sorry, I get side tracked by bunnies. I think if you were here at my place I could help you exercise..do you like to run? BOL
Thanks to Fozziemom and Forrest for another great issue. Remember my friends, these Dear Bacon issues can’t happen without you 🙂 Remember to send your pictures and questions to me at email@example.com
