Shopping Around the World – REMINDER

Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World last month.  It’s so awesome to see the various prices, recipes and pictures from around the world!

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April 2014.  This has become a huge hit and we all want to know if we are paying more or less than everyone else – snorts.  Our next scheduled Shopping Around the World will be – Wednesday, September 30th.

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:

FIVE items of your CHOICE – Something that you go to when making the family dinner.  Perhaps this is one of your family’s favorite?  A quick meal?  A snack?  List your FIVE items and discuss what the meal is.  Having pictures will also be fantastic to share.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars

Collect Rocks Day


 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Today, September 16th is Collect Rocks Day!  This day is right up Bacon’s alley.  You know because Bacon collects rocks.  Not just any rocks but pet rocks.

Collect Rocks Day is a day to enjoy your pet rocks.  Pet rocks are not just stones that sit there all day.  They are individuals.  They are pets.  They have wonderful attitudes. And might I add – they are PROS at Hide and Go Seek.  One time, Bashful hid in the fish tank and it took us almost three days to find him – that was fun!  So you see, they also have a sense of humor.

It doesn’t matter what they look like.  It doesn’t matter what economical background they come from.  All that matters is the love and fun that is had with your rocks.  Sounds like humans should take note of this huh?

So from all of the rock clan here at the Hotel Thompson (Bashful, Chip, Manny, Princess Coralena, Virginia, Benedict Cumberock, Koishi, Rockelle, Speedy Rock and Hudson) Happy Collect Rocks Day!

Oh and P.S.  Don’t let Bacon’s mom fool you.  She has a rock fetish too.  She wants to collect her very own rock – as in this picture of Rock – chitter chatter – isn’t she funny!?

Anniversary Kidnapping – Part 3

Welcome back my friends to Part 3 of mom/dad’s kidnapping.  Of all of the places to send mom/dad overnight – why not a hotel?  Snorts.  I grabbed daddy’s credit card and booked them a room at the Hyatt in Marietta which is down the street from the restaurant I sent them to – Pappasito’s Cantina.  The good part about this was that mom/dad are Hyatt members and they had enough points on their card that the room was FREE.  Yes, you read that correctly.  FREE.  Nothing beats FREE – especially when you are putting together an anniversary weekend.

But wait a minute.  There is something better than FREE.  FREE champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries courtesy of the hotel manager, Mr. Foster.  You rock Mr. Foster.  This made mom/dad’s anniversary night.  They enjoyed the bubbly and the room.  Among experiences of hotel stays, this one ranked way up there at the top of the list – perhaps maybe even number 1.  And look at the decorated bed.  Romantic huh?

Okay remember then room was on the Hyatt point system and FREE.  Well Mr. Foster also upgraded mom/dad’s room for their anniversary.  Oh my piggy heavens!  I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this video that mom took – OMP!  I wanted to come too – and the other anipals here.  There was plenty of room for us to have a gracious time and we wouldn’t be in the way.  You don’t believe me?  Well, I’m going to share mom’s third video with you on the room.  Daddy said they were in pig heaven!  What’s not to like – check this out.  AND SPECIAL THANK YOU TO MR FOSTER AND THE STAFF OF THE MARIETTA HYATT – YOU ROCK!
