Today at the Hotel Thompson, we say goodbye to the rest of our furniture. Last Thursday, Salvation Army came out and picked up some pieces. Today, Goodwill will be picking up some pieces. What is final, the junk man will be coming by this afternoon and picking it up. It has been a long week getting this far. To think, by tonight the kitchen and front room will be empty.
Kitchen table, chairs, china cabinet and entertainment center – you were all good in your efforts these past 16 years while you have lived here. You have seen good times and bad. We have served many of meals, laughed and cried at the table. And furniture – sofa and couch – you have especially been great these past 11 years. You’ve taken a lot of torture from us anipals. We will all miss you dearly because we have been told we can’t be on the new furniture – rolls piggy eyes. That hurts. But mom/dad said not to worry, they will work something out with us.
This starts Phase II of the renovation here at the Hotel Thompson. The painting. Colors have been picked out. Rollers are ready. Not a lot of painting but some contrast painting is lined up. So that’s where we are my friends. Phase II. Phase II only has a couple of days and then the end is near – Phase III. I can make it… right?

No pets on the furniture?? Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! …..Wait…. That IS a joke right…? I mean it’s called FURniture…..
Love and licks,

Snorts and rolls with laughter. Aren’t they funny. No anipals on the furniture. Mom says she will sneak is a blankie on the sofa with dad. Maybe. XOXO – Bacon

You’re doing good old buddy old pal….it’s tough saying bye bye to the old friendly furniture – all the memories of cuddling on the couch and chair…..curling up on blankies to watch tv and have snacks together……no doubt your Mom and Dad have plans for cuddle spots that will NOT be “restricted air space” in the house……..can’t wait to see the final version of Casa De Thompson!
04/11/2015 at 6:29 pm
Me either! I ❤️ the new name. Casa de Thompson has a nice ring to it. I may have to use that for the final revealing. Should be fun and exciting for sure. I can’t wait to see everything come together. Right now everything is in different directions. XOXO – Bacon
04/11/2015 at 6:37 am
Hang on! You are almost there.
04/11/2015 at 6:30 pm
I’m hanging. I think possibly we might be the worse part. Maybe. Of course if mom doesn’t fall off the latter painting. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
04/11/2015 at 6:50 am
Bro that’s the best phase ever… after all things are gone and the walls are empty you see how your project grows with efurry stroke of the brush… But I agree for the old furnitures, they are a part of our life somehow… I sometimes wish they would fall apart automatically after some years, so you haven’t that rock in your stomach when you give them away :o)
04/11/2015 at 6:32 pm
Snorts. The walls being bare were a problem. Mom was going to paint one wall. BUT all of the walls are in need of paint so all walls are getting painted. Ha! Too funny. Mom is not Michaelangelo so this will be interesting for sure. XOXO – Bacon

Adious Much-couchos….but out with the old..means in with the new…maybe you will get your own recliner 🙂 loves Fozziemum xxxx
04/11/2015 at 6:33 pm
Now that’s what I’m talking about. My own special place for my butt. Will you ask mommy for me. Awesome! XOXO – Bacon
04/12/2015 at 11:54 pm
I will Bacon…but i bet she already has plans 🙂 loves Fozziemum xx
04/11/2015 at 9:03 am
Do they really thing you won’t go on the new stuff? Humans are so silly! Someone needs to break them in!
04/12/2015 at 1:14 am
Snorts. You are so right. Just wait and see who wins this battle. Ha! XOXO – Bacon

Yes we agree they need to be broken in by furry butts. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly
04/12/2015 at 1:15 am

I really like painting. .. It’s the prep that sucks.
04/12/2015 at 1:17 am
Snorts. Mom started tonight. This should be fun. I wonder how many snout prints I can get in the paint before she notices? XOXO – Bacon

OMG! I think that would be a wonderful faux painting look! 🐽🐽🐽🐽🐽🐷 Yup. I’d love to see it 😂
04/12/2015 at 10:29 pm
Ha! Mom is having a time with it. Wish you were closer 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
04/11/2015 at 2:27 pm
Yep…change is hard sometimes. However, you will ‘love’ your ‘new digs’ when the painting is done and the new furniture arrives. And just think how much the next family will enjoy the furnishings you donated ! ♥
And I imagine your parents have great plans in the furniture dept for you , Houdini and purr thing. There are chairs made just for furry kids … we’ve seen ’em !!!

This is one big reno!
04/12/2015 at 1:18 am
Yes! And mom says she feels every bit of it in her aching joints. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
04/11/2015 at 6:31 pm
Yes you can make it and when they arrant home you can’t on that furniture all you want and break it on. Just think of all of those new springs good for bouncing.
04/12/2015 at 1:19 am
Snorts. I like the way you think my friend. XOXO – Bacon
04/11/2015 at 6:51 pm
I hope your taking pictures so we can see what you done. Sounds like it’s going to be really nice.
04/12/2015 at 1:21 am
I’ve taken pictures every step of the way. It’s definitely going to be completely different. XOXO – Bacon

No pets on furniture lasts about as long as keeping a new car clean – we give it 3 weeks 🙂
04/12/2015 at 1:21 am
Snorts. I give it three minutes until mom turns her back. XOXO – Bacon
04/12/2015 at 8:04 am
Wait, I’ve been off the grid & missed this–you’re getting rid of all your furniture? Won’t the anipals be upset with you (not to mention your hubby?!) PS, this must be the week for it (spring cleaning, I guess) as we are expecting new sofa to arrive & I have to arrange the removal of our old one. Good luck with the remodel–all the dust & chaos will be worth it when you’ve got a new, beautiful space!!!
04/12/2015 at 10:31 pm
Dust? You don’t know half of it. Snorts. Mom got a wild hair up her butt and decided to renovate. The kitchen, living room, hallway and bathroom have all been gutted. All furniture has been donated to various organizations. Hardwood flooring is going down and new furniture has been ordered. Mom
gave it a three week turnaround. Did I mention painting too! Snorts. This is going on the third week now. Can I come stay with you? XOXO – Bacon

Of course! Bacon meets (duck) eggs! 😉

Oh snorts! Yes we remember. Oh wow – great times! We got so emotionally attached to our furniture, don’t we? Mom/dad say that the new furniture is going to be equally as great. I can’t wait for this renovation thingy to be completed. Mom gave it three weeks – not a day more. Three weeks will be Saturday. I do hope it’s over by then. Mommy has been pushing WAY too much on everything. She still has to finish painting and then Thursday/Friday it is out of her hands. Thank goodness for that. XOXO – Bacon
