Shopping Around the World – REMINDER

Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World in August.  It’s so awesome to see the various prices around the world!

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April.  This has become a huge hit and we all want to know if we are paying more or less than everyone else – snorts.  We are going to do it again this month on Wednesday, November 26.

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.

Items to price this month:

  • Popcorn – Whatever you buy – post the price and the item
  • Beer/Wine – Whichever one you drink – post the price and the item
  • Chocolates – What’s your favorite – post the price and the item
  • Ice Cream – What’s your favorite – post the price and the item
  • Random Item of your choice.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars

Wednesday, November 26, 2014!

Thank you very much for your ideas for the monthly listing. If you have any more suggestions to be added to my on-going list, please send them to me at

Elf on the Shelf – OH NO!

Oh my friends.  I think I’m scared.  I think I may be in trouble.  It’s almost *that* time of the year again. You know the time.  *That* time when Don Juan comes out – shivers and squeals.  Wait a minute.  You’re looking confused.  You don’t know who Don Juan is?  You might be lucky that you don’t know.  Don Juan is the name of my Elf on the Shelf here at the Hotel Thompson.  But Don Juan – he’s “special”.  I mean really “special”.  You see, Don Juan is not made of the same cloth as all of these other elves that come out for the holidays.  Don Juan is evil – pure and simple.

You see these little Elf on the Shelves are a Christmas tradition.  In theory, they watch over the household and report back to the North Pole every night.  Once at the North Pole, they inform Santa of all of the happenings at their house.  By morning, the return back to the house in different positions so you know they’ve been to the North Pole.

But Don Juan. Shakes piggy head and shivers.  Don Juan has his own agenda.  He comes out and scares everyone here at the Hotel Thompson.  He does bad things…. some things I can’t even say out loud.  And get this, I didn’t want to be the only one with elves in the house this year.  So what did I do?  I sent out four elves to some friends here in blogville.  Some of them you might have already met.  My cousin Sammy has Elfvis – which has already gotten into some trouble.  My friends the Pigs have Timmy.  And then there’s a couple of other peeps that haven’t commented yet on their new elf’s name.

You see my friends may be thanking me too quickly.  You see, the day after Thanksgiving (11/28/2014) is when the elves get their special powers.  We won’t know until then if all of these friends that I sent out will be naughty or nice.  So I just want to put this out there my friends – I’m sorry – snorts.  It’s going to be a long holiday season.  The Elf on the Shelves have special powers from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas Day.

So I have a really, REALLY important question to you my friends in blogville.

 Is there anyone that can take this little oinker in for a couple of weeks?

Please.  I’ll be nice… really.

Shivers just thinking of what Don Juan is up to… especially with my sock monkey!  Squeals!
