Letter From Summer Camp

29 Jul

Dear Family,

Bacon here from Summer Camp.  Another day down and another day closer to coming back home to the Hotel Thompson.  Yesterday for our activity we went swimming in the lake.  Things were going good.  The cute little ‘strawberries’ (girls) got a thrill – snorts. Scott taped a fin on his back and swam over to their side.  I’ve never seen strawberries move that fast out of the water in my entire life.  Some of them were faster than the girls in those b-rated movies on SyFy.  It was really hilarious.  But Wolf caught Scott and he got into trouble.  I have to admit mom, I had *nothing* to do with that.  Really I didn’t – pig honor.

Last night, we got to watch a movie outside near the camp fire.  Now that’s what I’m talking about.  It was so much fun!  It was Race for Your Life Charlie Brown.  I got my first roasted marshmallow.  So delicious.  Of course, it was so hot it almost burned my lips but I couldn’t just stop at one.  And trust me.  No one noticed towards the end of the movie when I got the rest of the bag of marshmallows.  Nope not at all.  You see they were too busy taking care of the fire.  Oh don’t worry. It wasn’t that big.  A boy in cabin 3 threw some fireworks in the bonfire.  One went off into the brush and cause a small fire.  It only took two fire extinguishers to get it out.  No worries.  Talk to you later.

      I think he really is now my friend. He’s having a better time than I think what he is saying for sure. But I know I sure do miss him! ❤ Houdini

      I think it’s having his moments there even though it started off rocky with someone calling my brother a H.O.G. As if. ❤ Houdini

    I KNEW you’d get into it (though maybe a bit too much so on the pranks), Bacon. See – camp IS fun and you’re in the midst of it. Enjoy it while you’re there. 😉

      I do believe he is having more fun in nature than what he thought would happen. Can’t wait to see what happens next with his adventure. ❤ Houdini

    What’s a little fire when you can have a whole bag of marshmallows?? So glad your priorities are in order, B.

    Love and licks,

      You know my brother Bacon my friend. He is *always* about the food. If there is a way, he is so there! And, I don’t blame him. I love me some food too. ❤ Houdini

      Oh no my friend. Your LadyMum is going to send you to Summer Camp? Maybe you can talk her into sending you here with me for a while? We can camp out in Bacon’s room – barks. ❤ Houdini

    you should invite that Scott for a visit after the camp, seems he is a guy with brilliant ideas…

    • PigLove

      07/30/2015 at 10:31 am

      I’ll have to ask mom about that to find out where Scott lives so he can come for visits here at the Hotel Thompson. ❤ Houdini

      HA! Don’t let him fool you my friend. Bacon is an inside kind of piggy. He’s only doing this for Summer Camp. And you know what? I kind of feel the same. I love my comforts at the Hotel Thompson. Barks! ❤ Houdini


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
