Who Needs An Elf?

Oh dear piggy heavens above. Looks at the captured elf on my desk and really fears for it – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Evil Squirrel's Nest


My friend Bacon is running a contest to try and find a worthy home for one of his friends.  That friend just happens to be an elf… and at that, a possible conspirator with the infamous evil Elf on a Shelf of the Hotel Thompson, Don Juan!  As you can see, my shelf is already bursting with friends of my own.  But that never stops me from trying to pick up a new companion to watch me type all these crappy posts on my blog, so I am officially entering Bacon’s contest with this post!  Since I’m lazy I thought it would only be fair to let the current denizens of my shelf make their own case for wanting to welcome Don Juan’s friend into their lives… so I’ll let them take it away from here!


It’s the tire swing squirrel here.  Hanging around on my Goodyear perch makes…

Happy LONG Weekend!

Oh friends – can you smell it?  Here comes a wonderful LONG weekend.  Full of fun, food, cuddles, food, love, food, backyard fun, food, television, sleep and more food – snorts. You get the drift – let’s all have some fun.  Kick your feet up, snuggle down on the couch, gather in the back yard to make S’mores and have F.U.N.

Have a great LONG weekend my friends!  I’ll be thinking of you!

My Dad – The Superhero

WEEK No. 4

Okay friends – Christmas is coming up soon…for those counting 117 days – snorts.  Well my daddy, he is special – we all know that.  He loves his toys.  Literally, the man ❤ toys.  He and mom went to Wally World a couple of weeks back and the first place he goes is the toy section.  What can I say.  My father is a child at heart.  When they came back home, I found these pictures on mom’s iPhone.  OMP (Oh my pig) is all I can say… and maybe WOW.

My dad wants to be a superhero.  Now I know where I get those feelings from… I’ve always wanted to be Super Pig.  So I’m thinking that with Christmas coming up soon, I’m going to buy him a costume from me – his number one piggy son.  That’s where I need your help my friends.  In the next six weeks, I’m going to show you a picture that mommy took of daddy in the toy section.  At the end of six weeks, YOU can vote who my daddy needs to be and what I get him for Christmas.  Sounds fair to me, you?

Okay – this week’s picture – thoughts?  My father – Iron Man?

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Today we are highlighting a toy that you really loved as a child and absolutely could not live without – that you had hours and hours of entertainment.  

Today, I want to focus on mommy – the bookworm.  Yep, the bookworm.  As a child, she always had a book in her hand and was reading.  I think that is why it is so important for her to read me a bedtime story at night to this day.

When she was younger, she absolutely loved the Nancy Drew series.  OMP (oh my pig!)  Can you believe that we still have the original book series and the original lunch box here at the Hotel Thompson?  They are in one of her boxes marked childhood.  I’ll even tell you a secret.  Sometimes, she brings them out and reads them to this day.  I’ll be honest with you.  She might have even read some to this little piggy.  Awesome huh?
