Bacon’s Show and Tell – MARK YOUR CALENDARS

Today is going to be a twist to our normal Bacon’s Show and Tell.  This month we are going to highlight something that is the oldest in your house.  It could be a person – snorts watch out daddy of mine.  It could be a special dish that you use only on special occasions.  It could be a picture frame of a loved one.  It could be a dress.  It could be a military uniform. Anything.  What is the oldest thing you have in your house?  Take a picture and share it with a story on April 30th, 2015.  Can’t wait to see what you find my friends.  Have fun!

Shopping Around the World – MARK YOUR CALENDARS

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April 2014.  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 – Friday, April 24th.

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:

  • Spring/Summer is quickly approaching my friends on this side of the world.  On the other side of the world, Autumn/Winter is quickly approaching.  That is if Mother Nature starts playing well with others 🙂  It was suggested to post what you pay during this time of year for the month for your heating and/or air conditioning.  What temperature do you set your thermostat on?  Discuss.
  • Meat.  Most of us eat some type of meat in some way.  Post one of your favorites and cost.  NOTE:  If you don’t eat meat, post something that you get your protein from that you eat a lot and discuss.
  • Vegetable.  What is your go to vegetable/cost.
  • Random Item.
  • Homemade Dish.  This went over really well last month.  Post something that you put together, take a picture if you can, and discuss prices in making the finished product.  As last month, you can combine your meat, vegetable and random item for your homemade dish.

We hope to see a lot of homemade dishes and recipes this month.  Let’s share.  Kind of like eating at everyone’s table around the world.  Have fun with this my friends!

Paw Time with Houdini

Hey my friends to another week of Paw Time with Houdini.  As you have read on Bacon’s blog, the Hotel Thompson is now under construction.  I didn’t know what that word was until I started hearing all of the banging, pulling and ripping… and let’s not mention the grunting and groaning from mom and dad.  WOW – those two really can put out some elbow grease when they put their minds to it.

They said that this reconstruction would be better for ALL of us here.  I really hope so with the noises they are making.  And daddy says the worse is yet to come this weekend.  When I asked why he said because he and mom were hitting ‘the’ closet.  I must have looked confused still.  Daddy explained that most people have that one closet that no one ever opens because of everything that might fall out.  They are opening that closet here at the Hotel Thompson and cleaning it out this weekend.  Mom said it was for storage benefits.  I’m not sure about that.  I think I’ll go up and spend time with Nana while they fight the inner closet demons.


Last week when I got groomed, I came home and mom put me in my jammies.  The first thing I had to do afterwards and climb up on my pillow, stretch out and take a nap.  It’s a tough job being this adorable.  You know?  Mommy says this picture just tugs at her heart.  Nana says it looks like I was praying.  Barks!  I was totally exhausted.



The next day, I moved to my bigger bed that I have learned to move around to my liking.  Don’t I look all cute and innocent in this one?  I was chewing on my toy keys.  I ❤ those toy keys.  I’ve had them since mom/dad adopted me back in September.  They are one of my favorite chew toys in the entire world.  Do you have something like that too?  They are falling apart now but I’m not ready to give them up just yet.

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!
