Where in the World is Bashful?
The little tyke sent me this picture from his newest destination. Not much to go on but he looks like he is having a heck of a good time. You know that rock of mine NEVER stays home for very long. So I’m wondering with all of the festivities in the pic, where will Bashful be spending his Christmas and New Year? He did give me three hints. I’ll list them here for you.
1 – He is going on vacation and will be traveling with his host family throughout the holidays. I guess some people have the traveling gnome – we have a traveling pebble – snorts!
2 – His vision is still strong. Sounds kind of cryptic.
3 – He’s catching up with a past girlfriend. Wonder who this might be?
There you go my friends. You know as much as I do. Where or where in this huge world will Bashful be spending the holidays?
Friends – If you get a chance, you *must* check out mom’s food blog here. You will NOT be disappointed. Those pictures of hers just make me want to lick the computer screen. YUM-YUM! Don’t forget to let her know what you think. ❤
Oh friends. I have to admit that life is *never* boring here at the Hotel Thompson – EVER! Especially when those two humans of mine that I call parents are involved. They are always up to trouble when they go out unchaperoned. This week has been no difference.
First up daddy. Let me start by saying that Houdini was NOT hurt in dad’s latest antics. You are already shaking your head aren’t you – snorts. You see mommy had to run an errand at this party store and daddy went with her. Daddy wanted to look at the balloons while mom got what she needed. When she came back to get daddy, he was talking with a store clerk and they were snorting and laughing together. She knew right then something was up. Shakes piggy head – you know this can’t go well right? So mom asks what is going on, what is so funny. That’s when the store clerk and daddy shook hands, quit laughing and the clerk walked away. Mom was persistent though and asked daddy what was that all about. Do you know what he had the nerve to tell her? Daddy and the clerk were talking about how many helium balloons it would take to make Houdini fly. What in the world!? Okay, I admit it. It would be fun to watch and according to size/weight the number would probably be 6 or 7. Mom was not so happy about that. Of course, daddy tried to convince her he wouldn’t do it outside, only indoors, but she wasn’t buying it – snorts. I wonder why?
Then, I saw this picture on mom’s iPhone. OMP (oh my pig!) shakes my piggy head. There really aren’t words here to as what daddy is doing. Is he riding the unicorn, mugging the unicorn or training the unicorn? God only knows when it concerns my daddy.
Mom tried to explain the picture to me. She said that daddy saw this pink think in a box and pulled it out. Yep a pink unicorn – how realistic this time of year huh? Of course, the unicorn got tired and sat on the floor. Daddy wanted to ride it – shakes piggy head – why I don’t know. But giddy up unicorn.
Now here’s what you don’t see in the picture. Mommy said people started watching and laughing and pointing. Who wouldn’t right? And you don’t see in the bottom left hand corner of the picture which I conveniently blocked out was a woman bending over. Let’s just say that she had more crack showing than a plumber… or a side street. Snorts – now *that* is what had me cracking up. Poor lady.
And don’t think that daddy is the only culprit that gets into trouble when out unchaperoned. Oh no – my mommy fits right into some big shoes – literally. Do you like her new red shoes for Christmas? She says that a woman can NEVER have too many shoes. Okay. I just don’t know. Shakes piggy head.
So tell me this my friends. My humans are not the only ones with these skills for trouble – right? Snorts.
