Okay all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson are writing this to mom as an open apology for our misbehavior this morning. We apologize and will try very hard not to let it happen again. Really. We will. So let us explain our behavior my friends.
First up. Mom is not a morning person. Not at all. We are talking zombie before coffee – no coffee no talkie. Well this morning, rolls piggy eyes and looks innocent, someone set the alarm to zero five hundred dark in the woods time to get up… something about trying to be the first to check in with cousin Sammy’s Tuesday Teaser. (And no I wasn’t first – darn it and shuffles hooves). Well after I checked in, I went back to sleep in the big bed – see me here in the picture. Mom was not amused. She got up, went to the bathroom, mumbled about who in their right mind would change the alarm clock and then went back to bed for a few minutes. Unfortunately that’s when she fell asleep and that’s bad. Bad because today is a worky day and she has to go that worky place. And the alarm clock already went off. This is not good.
A couple of hours later, mom wakes up because Hemi is rolling around on her side. That’s when she notices that it is awfully lit inside of the room. She sits up and oh.my.gosh.it’s.a.run.for.your.money because it’s almost 8:00AM. What the cream cheese? What happened? I know – I know – “someone set the alarm to zero five hundred dark in the woods time to get up”.
She jumps out of bed, tells daddy she’s running late and starts the marathon. But of course we are all standing there looking at her like, “Hey, remember us?” You know that pitiful look of we have never eaten before and are starving – snorts. And did you know there is a reason why we anipals get up in shifts in the morning for feeding. You see, I need to eat first. It’s just the way it is. Once you satisfy my rumbling belly with my piggy chow and Cheerio’s, I’ll go back to sleep. Then there is Houdini that gets fed. If you don’t feed him by himself and watch, the purr things try to eat his food. And then lastly, it’s the purr things. We all like the purr things food – snorts. Try feeding us all at one time – snorts with piggy laughter. Let’s just say that it didn’t go too well and mom still had not had any coffee.
And then there was the incident with the front room carpet mat near the entrance. Someone was caught gnawing on it like it was a puppy treat – not mentioning any names little guy. There’s now a hole in it and mommy might have blown a gasket because of that…. or maybe it was because I butted my head through the baby gate into the kitchen and ate some of the purr things food?… or maybe it was the purr thing Hemi chasing Houdini around the house knocking over the water dish? I’m not really sure what exactly it was that threw mommy over the edge this morning but I think she sure was glad to go to the worky place this morning. Sorry mom.

Dear Bacon – It’s so hot! I mean really HOT. I can’t take it anymore. I don’t even have the stamina to look for nuts. I can’t even move from this limb. Can you help a squirrel out? Signed Hot in Atlanta
Dear Hot in Atlanta – I feel for you my friend. It is so H.O.T. here in Atlanta. I moved from my bedroom to the living room and was almost sweating. I need winter back. Come on over to the Hotel Thompson. You can crash with Journalist Rocky the Squirrel in his air conditioned treehouse in the backyard.
Dear Bacon – There is always that *one* family member that you just roll your eyes. This is us trying to take a serious family picture for our dad for Father’s Day. Do you see how well that worked out? Stupid on the end has to make faces. What to do my friend? Signed Classy
Dear Classy – Snorts. You know your dad might just appreciate that look on your siblings face. I mean if he is the family clown – him looking serious might not be a fun picture. I say go for it my friends. It’s better to laugh than cry!
Dear Bacon – Rosie was having a bad day so I offered her a shoulder to cry on to get past her woes. That was three hours and now she is asleep. I don’t dare wake her but my shoulder – I can’t feel it anymore. It’s past the tingling stage. It’s now at the do-I-even-have-an-arm-there-anymore stage. Have you ever been stuck like this? Signed Big Brother
Dear Big Brother – You are the man my friend. That was so thoughtful of you to have a leaning shoulder not only to cry on but to sleep on. Of course, you can’t wake her. After what she has been through – whatever that might be – a leaning shoulder from big brother will make all of the bad go away. I’ve done it a time or two with Mouse Girl. Awesome job my friend!
Dear Bacon – There I was my fellow pig. Eating my carrots and minding my own business. That’s when it happened. I heard the refrigerator door open. You know that sound, right? The sound of freedom. The sound that says the store is open. Squeals! There’s so many good things in that cold box. Don’t you feel the same? I couldn’t help but suck in air and squeal. I wanna go shopping in that place! What about you? Signed Bandit
Dear Bandit – I feel you my fellow pig and squealer. I love that huge cold box. It has such mysteries of delights stored in it – from cold stuff to frozen stuff. Once I opened the freezer and was sucking on ice cubes when mom busted me. Why ice cubes? Why not. They tasted so delicious and were so cold in my piggy tummy! Let me know if you get to go shopping in there.
FRIENDS – Please remember that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please email me your pictures and letters 🙂
