Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –
Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!
Today, September 16th is Collect Rocks Day! This day is right up Bacon’s alley. You know because Bacon collects rocks. Not just any rocks but pet rocks.
Collect Rocks Day is a day to enjoy your pet rocks. Pet rocks are not just stones that sit there all day. They are individuals. They are pets. They have wonderful attitudes. And might I add – they are PROS at Hide and Go Seek. One time, Bashful hid in the fish tank and it took us almost three days to find him – that was fun! So you see, they also have a sense of humor.
It doesn’t matter what they look like. It doesn’t matter what economical background they come from. All that matters is the love and fun that is had with your rocks. Sounds like humans should take note of this huh?
So from all of the rock clan here at the Hotel Thompson (Bashful, Manny, Princess Coralena, Virginia, Benedict Cumberock, Koishi, Rockelle and Speedy Rock) Happy Collect Rocks Day!

Jumping all around and squealing. Guess who came home yesterday. Go ahead – guess. Can you guess? Do you know? Do you want a hint? Go ahead guess. BASHFUL my international rolling stone. He’s been spending time with my buddy Speedy in the United Kingdom the past couple of months. He has told all of us some awesome stories of adventures he had with Speedy. They danced and boogied to the radio. Played in the garden together. Met some ponies and some girls ❤ And of course some things that happened in the United Kingdom – stays in the United Kingdom – snorts.
The mailman delivered a box to the steps of the Hotel Thompson and once we opened it, we found a booty of goodies. Bashful dressed like a pirate. Pirate coins, notebooks and a sleeping bag! Can you believe the goodies?!
And you know what? Bashful came home with a friend – cheers, screams and snorts. May we present to you Speedy Rock to the left. Awesome – spectacular – fun – amazing. Look at the resemblance to Speedy – all the way to the ears to the bushy tail. OMP (oh my pig!) We were snorting with delight here.
And the gals – Princess Coralena, Virginia, Rockelle and Koishi were falling all over him and his accent… or was it his eye patch? I think they are all in ❤ and hey – what’s there not to be in love with, right?
Thanks Speedy for showing my tyke a most excellent adventure. And I guess that brings up the next question. Just where in the world will Bashful show up next? And to those that have signed up on the list to host Bashful, don’t give up. We are slowly working down the list. It might take a while, but it will get to you.

Does the outfit make me look tough? My dad says I have the eye of the tiger but yet my mom says I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. What do you think? Signed Upper Cut
Dear Upper Cut,
Yous do look tuff. Me wuld suwe want yous in meez corner. Let me tell yous ‘bout….Aw nevew mind, yous worried ‘bout floatin’ like a butterfly and stingin’ like a bee.

So it looks like yous followin’ in da wight footsteps. Keep yous chin up and growl a bit, me finks hims did.
I’m ready for the beach. My flippers are on and I’m ready for some adventure. My favorite shows to watch on the nature channel show seahorses. Do you think I can blend in with them? Signed C.Horse
Yep yous got yous flippers on alwight. Let’s see…will yous fit in? Well these days yous wuld fit wight in most evewywhere so me dusn’t see why not. Yous might wanna check into an air tank tho’ meez not suwe yous lungs can take all at water. Yous know don’t ya’ dat male sea horses hav da babies? Is dat da kinda adventure yous lookin’ fur? Me dusn’t fink it works dat way ifin so. Yous might get luckier and find mowe adventure in da nearby pasture.
