Letter From Summer Camp

27 Jul

Dear Family,

Bacon here from Summer Camp.  I’m settled in… well as much as I can be.  Mom dropped me off here on Saturday morning.  She introduced me around and showed me my cabin.  I’m rooming with 10 other peeps.  I walked around looking for the television and was told there isn’t one in the individual cabins.  What?  And we all have to share the bathroom.  Double What?  What kind of place is this Summer Camp?  How barbaric.  I couldn’t believe it when mom hugged me, told me goodbye and then left without me!  It took everything within me not to chase after her.

That afternoon, they left everyone to their own devices to settle in at our cabins.  We had a greet and meet that night before retiring to our cabins for the night.  First up, really mom?  You put me in a Summer Camp where we have to participate in activities… outside… in nature?  Do I really look like that kind of pig?  Then when I went to bed for the past couple of nights, there was no apple or treat on my pillow and no bedtime story.  Huh?  And a room-mate here bedding in this cabin actually called me a H.O.G.  It took all I could do not to rip into him but I didn’t.  I just did what came natural to me.  When he went to the bathroom, I dragged his blankets and pillow outside.  H.O.G.  Imagine that.  Me?  No way!

We get one hour of computer time at night after dinner.  ONE hour.  I gotta make it count so I’ll send you an email when I can.  Make sure Houdini takes care of my blog this week.  Tell everyone in blogville I miss them and when I survive this I will be back.  Much love to you, Bacon

    …. hmmmm…. hmmmm… hmmmm… bro… he called you a HOG? what kind of room mate is that? (I mean is it a big guy or can you blow him away?) my mom hated that kind of activities… it makes no sense for a 10 year old girl to make an ash tray from clay…she started smoking many years later… and she had no vim to classify plants… you can smoke them or not – game over… shall I send you a cake with some tools for a pricon break?

      Barks! It sounds like my brother Bacon is having a hard enough time right now. I’ll let you know about the cake with some tools. I’m hoping he will check his blog tonight. Can you believe they only give him ONE hour of computer time? That’s totally outrageous. He lives by his laptop! ❤ Houdini

    Oh I think that roommate needs a little reality check! You’re just the guy to do that Cuz! Sounds more like a military camp than a “pleasant getaway”. I hope you are at least having SOME fun there!

    Hugs, sammy

      Barks! I know right cousin. He called him a H.O.G. Really? My brother is not a hog. He may be a little pig headed sometimes but in no way resembles a HOG. ❤ Houdini

    OMP!!!! And I thought I had it bad with my peeps sneaking away. Shall I tawdle on down to rescue you? No wait. I think you should stay and wreak havoc on that cretin roommate of yours. That’d be fun! H.O.G. my a#@!!!

    • PigLove

      07/27/2015 at 5:03 pm

      Exactly! I have faith that big brother Bacon will take care of this guy. HOG! No one calls my brother names. I wanted mom/dad to take me to this so called camp right then and there so I could handle this twerk. ❤ Houdini

    Oh Bacon, just think when you come home how much more you’ll appreciate the separate bedroom, bathroom, etc. I’m sure you’ll manage to tame the beasty roommate or at least have some fun trying. [wink]

      You got that right – you really do know my brother don’t you. He is not going to take this sitting down… he will get this guy. You just wait and see. ❤ Houdini (who is taking care of big brother's blog this week)

    We’re glad you’re making the best of it, Bacon.

      He is doing that. Can’t wait to see what he sends today. ❤ Houdini

    Cwap!! Let me at that stupid guy! The sheer gall of him…I’d tweak him good Bacon. There is no need for that kind of talk. We could stick little pins in his ears (my claws) and throw him in water to see if he floats. Hope the chows good and plenty of it.

    Your friend,


    • PigLove

      07/28/2015 at 10:03 am

      aaww – thanks my friend. If this guy doesn’t back down from calling our Bacon a H.O.G. it’s going to be on like Donkey Kong! ❤ Houdini

      I know Auntie Sharon. We are waiting for his letter for today. I’m hoping things get a little bit better for him. ❤ Houdini

    Bacon – no tv! no bedtime snack! What kind of camp is that! We feel your pain!

    • PigLove

      07/28/2015 at 10:08 am

      Thanks my friends. I know Bacon is dying without his all day electronic use, his television, his air conditioning and room service. WOW – he really does have it made here at the Hotel Thompson doesn’t he? Barks! ❤ Houdini


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
