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 email@example.com

Do you remember last week when I had a BOLO (be on the look out) and an APB (all points bulletin) out for Twinkies Chocodiles? You can read about it here if you don’t remember. I told you that my mom if not anything is very pig-headed (snorts) when it comes to things that she wants. Now you know where I get my stubbornness from – I don’t fall too far from the tree. This weekend, she was determined to find these little treasures somewhere within a fifty mile radius of the Hotel Thompson.
Insert Mission Impossible music now. Nana called my mom on Friday at her worky place. Mommy told her of these delectable little treasures and gave Nana a mission of looking for them at store she was going to that day. Nana went to the store and even got the store manager involved to no avail. Bummer.
Then mom/dad went grocery shopping at another chain store Saturday morning. Again, nothing. Bummer. Now, it was getting to mommy. She is not a quitter – especially with chocolate on the table. Mom called Nana and they were going to meet up for lunch on Sunday to come up with another plan.
Sunday, mom/dad took Nana out to lunch. Lunch was great but the thing still dancing in mom and Nana’s heads were these chocolate Twinkies – oh yummy! So after dinner, a trip was planned to Wally World. It was like humans gone wild when they entered the doors of old Wally World. Fist bumps commenced and then it was ready, set and GO off they went in their separate ways to find the elusive Chocodile who some called Bigfoot – often talked about but never seen.
That’s when mom saw it out of the corner of her eye. A blue stand filled with what you might ask – Chocodiles – THUD. I think mom actually dropped to her knees in front of the display and thanked the heavens above. She then called daddy who then called Nana and they all met in front of the alter of chocolate covered Twinkies. You would have thought they had never seen chocolate before.
I can’t tell you how many boxes mom and Nana bought. I *can* tell you that they freeze well – snorts. And I can tell you that mom had one last night. As she was moaning in satisfaction, I picked up a few choice words from her like the following, “Spongy cake goodness with a white cream in the middle surrounded by a chocolate heaven”. Okay, after that I kind of left the room quietly so mom could have a moment. I’m guessing that they are mom approved.

My humans – they can’t be trusted to go out anywhere without getting into some type of trouble. This past weekend, they decided to go out and get Mexican with Nana. Daddy ordered a large soda. This is what they gave him – snorts. Daddy looked at the waiter and said, “I’m sorry. I ordered a large.” Snorts – rolls piggy eyes. Daddy of mine – you are too funny. Can you see the comparison of that drink with his paw? It’s H.U.G.E. Mommy said she has never seen one so big before. Mom and Nana just laughed.
And nope. He didn’t require a refill – snorts.
