Shopping Around the World – REMINDER

Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World.  Seeing everyone’s different FIVE ingredient salads was awesome and eye opening!  We took notes here at the Hotel Thompson and can’t wait to try some of these new recipes.

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World and it has become a huge hit.  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, June 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

This month we received a suggestion from our friends Reilly and Denny with Cowspotdog. This month we are pricing FIVE items from two different stores for price comparisons in your area.  Now, we are going to make this kind of easy.  FIVE items of your choice in making a meal.  Of course, you can use more than FIVE items to make your meal but you have to price comparison shop FIVE items from TWO different stores.  Got it?  And as always, pictures and recipes are greatly appreciated for our viewing pleasure… and of course licking the computer screen – snorts.  Happy shopping my friends.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars Wednesday, June 24, 2015!

Thank you very much for your ideas for the monthly listing. If you have an idea to be added to my on-going list, please send them to me at baconthompson@gmail.com ❤

Mom/Dad You Have Some Explaining To Do

  If you don’t know much about anything else about me by this point, you have to know that my humans are strange… unpredictable if you will. They are *always* getting into some type of trouble.  They are always going out and about unchaperoned.  And there is no telling what chaos they cause anywhere they go.  You don’t believe me still?

  Let’s take a look at example 1 to the left here.   Okay let’s assume I was snooping and found this on mom’s iPhone under pictures.  What?  I didn’t say that I did it.  I said just assume… looks innocent.  Let’s get back to the point shall we.  Tell me this my friends.  Have you ever been in a restaurant where there was such ‘stuff’ hanging around?  I mean is it me or a skull riding a motorcycle kind of eccentric or pushing the envelope just a bit?  Let alone mom/dad told me that this place was adults only and you had to be 21 years of age to enter and eat.  Now I understand why.  This restaurant is called the Vortex Bar and Grill and mom even did a blog about it on her food blog here.  It has great food… not that this oinker got a piggy bag to go or anything.  Snorts – way to go mom/dad.

When I saw this picture above, I was like cool a skull.  Then I looked further and longer at the picture.  Then I was like – what the pig is that?!  And more importantly – why is it hanging on the wall wearing Mardi Gras beads?  What the heck did it do to get those beads?  Of course seeing one of my ancestors ‘mounted’ on a wall got me squealing to the high heavens above and mom had to come to my bedroom to see what the problem was.  I mean heck, it’s not every day you see this, right?

Mom saw what I was squealing about and sat down on my toddler bed with me for ‘a talk’.  First up was the talk about not snooping… hey I said assume but I guess I just got busted huh?  Mom mentioned something about privacy and some things I shouldn’t see – blah blah blah – and sometimes things seen or heard can not be now unseen or unheard – blah blah blah.

Okay mom got it.  Please explain why one of my ancestors is on the wall wearing beads.  Honestly, she didn’t know why but she explained to me that this animal was called a boar.  There are several different classes of boars and mostly run wild.  We are related through the ancestry leaves.  He is kind of a mascot of sorts at this restaurant.  Okay that’s cool.  He lives on in fame still kind of smiling if you look at the grin on his face.  I wonder if that is because of the lack of somewhat clothing the waitresses wear in this alternative bar?  Or is because of the different people he sees throughout the day from lawyers to bikers?  But I still have to ask. Why is he wearing beads?  What do you think is the story behind that my friends?  You know this piggy has an inquiring mind.

Five Statements

Welcome my friends to Five Statements.  We love this game here at the Hotel Thompson.  We are going to tell you FIVE STATEMENTS.  You have to tell us which ONE is the truth.  Do you think you know us that well to figure it out?  Let’s put it to the test and see what you think you know of the Hotel Thompson.

Statement 1 – Daddy played professional football.

Statement 2 – Mommy used to be a ballerina.

Statement 3 – I love the feel of newly mowed grass on these hooves and run on it all of the time.

Statement 4 – Mom/dad and Bashful once met guitarist Slash.

Statement 5 – I always mind my matters and do what mom/dad say.

There you go my friends – the FIVE STATEMENTS.  Which one is true?  I’ll tell you tomorrow 🙂  Happy guessing.
