Today has been an important date all around – especially here at the Hotel Thompson! You do realize what a huge fanatic my mom is about the mouse that wears the white gloves? I mean, it’s bad enough that there are Mickey Mouse shapes across the facial boards of the Hotel Thompson… let alone the mouse is somehow someway in every room… and mom even has a tattoo of the fellow – shocker huh? I think you can say that she’s serious about Mickey.
Can you believe that November 18, 1928, Mickey Mouse made his debut into entertainment. He wasn’t originally known as Mickey Mouse. Did you know that? His first mark into history came in Steamboat Willie as Mortimer Mouse. They changed his name shortly thereafter – good thing too, huh?
In 1929, they came out with a short called The Opry House. This is when the mouse got his famous white gloves for his outfit.
And, did you know that Walt Disney himself did the voice of Mickey Mouse up until 1946?
And, the most important thing I found that I *know* mom is going to have a fit about.. there’s actually a Mickey Mouse cocktail. It’s made with tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco and a lime wedge. I guess it could be a grown up version by adding Vodka.
So, let’s all wish mom’s little idol a Happy Birthday!!

Okay my friends – I hope you are looking forward to this little food pictures that my mom is doing on her food blog. I gotta say – I LOVE looking at her pictures. Check her blog out here.
Remember – She posts her food blogs on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And you know what… ssshh – don’t tell her. But sometimes, I will sneak her camera out and drool over the pictures that she has taken. So delicious – except when she and dad eat gulps pork! Squeals!

Dear Bacon – I need help. My humans came home from their night out and caught me in the act. I couldn’t help it. Really. There was a kitty thingy outside of the window taunting me. It got me all worked up because the only thing separating us was this window pane and stupid blinds. I think I took care of the blinds. Signed Busted
Dear Busted – WOW! You see my friend the entire thing about trying to get away with something is not messing up the something so that you get caught in the middle of it – like your picture. I see hours – if not days – of making up with your humans on this one. And really…. tell me the truth. Was the cat really worth it? He’s probably laughing at you now.
Dear Bacon – Who says my poop or farts stink? I fart the rainbow – and I have proof now! Purrs and laughs at the ‘inside’ joke. Signed Rainbow Brite
Dear Rainbow Brite – I’m actually at a loss of words with this one pal. The proof is in the carpet and the colors are vibrant. You are touched with the rainbow. Carry on.
Dear Bacon – One of my hatchlings is bigger then the normal and furrier. I think I may need to call Guinness Book of World Records. I think I might have the biggest boy on earth. What do you think? Signed Tired Mom
Dear Tired Mom – Somehow, and I may be wrong, but I don’t think that is your baby. I think perhaps if you look closer, you will see *your* baby next to you. Look to your right.. a little bit more. Now you see your chick that looks like you? Now looks at your “big baby”. See how different he looks? In fact, I would go as far as to say that he might not chirp but may bark instead. Go ahead, poke him a little to see. Test my theory my friend. I think you’ve been played by a pooch.
Dear Bacon – It’s so hard to find good help these days. I hailed a taxi and got this ridiculous slow guy. Doesn’t he know it’s all about speed? Dude I hope he charges by the mile and not the time – I would owe a fortune! Signed Hare
Dear Hare – I hope you packed a lunch, a book and perhaps your cell phone. You can probably get a lot done by the time you get to your ‘destination’. Good luck with that and don’t forget to tip.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes when the wife gets mad at you, you just know she’s mad. Take for instance this picture. We were outside this morning watching the sun came up. I might have said something stupid. I’m thinking at least the wife did cause the next thing I new she was telling me to kiss it where the sun doesn’t shine. Why? Can you explain women to me? Signed Paw in Mouth
Dear Paw in Mouth – There are no words or instruction manuals my friend. As someone smart once told my father, “You can be right in your relationship or you can be happy. You can’t be both.” Those my friends are words to live by. I think you have a job to do now. 🙂
Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without your letters and pictures. Please keep sending them to me 🙂
