Shivers. Do you text on your cell phone? Well, this is the story for you my friends.
You see, for the past three years, a woman along with her father and uncle have been sending text messages to a deceased family member in order to deal with the grief. The loved one died from cancer and was buried with her beloved cell phone. When she was alive, she would often text her love ones throughout the day.
You can imagine the shock to the family when they started receiving texts back from their deceased loved one beyond the grave. One of the texts read, “I’m watching over you and it’s all going to bet better. Just pull through.”
Can you imagine the shock, the disbelief and then the miracle of what happened. The family was told that their loved ones number would never be given to anyone else. What in the world was taking place? Just for this moment, it was like they were texting again in the family.
Later it was discovered that the number had been reassigned to someone else who was unrelated to the family. He had been receiving text messages from the family that showed their grief. He thought he would reply to help them.

Dear Bacon – Busted! But I tell you, I was set up. Really I was. You see, I saw the two legged kid in the house outside the other day making what he called mud pies. I thought why couldn’t I make one? They look delicious. And trust me that kid was covered but no he didn’t get into trouble. I get out there and start making pies and the entire world is coming to an end. What do you think of that? Signed Pie Maker
Dear Pie Maker – Personally, I don’t think that is the kind of pies that you eat. Perhaps you can roll around in it to be cool – my kind has been doing that for years. But to eat – shakes piggy head no.
Dear Bacon – The humans left the house – check. Got my bath in – check. Got my robe on – check. Got my snacks – check. Got the remote – check. There I was preparing to watch my show on television, America’s Top Bitches, then it happened. The humans came back home early. What the cream cheese?! What did they expect I was going to do while they were out – lay on the floor and take a nap? Signed Comfy
Dear Comfy – I’m with you on that one my friend. If my humans came home during my show, they would just have to pull up, sit down and shut up until the show was done. I mean we are talking priorities here.
Dear Bacon – Help!? My humans they watch Star Wars way too much. This is how they are dressing me up for Halloween. Lord help me. One of my humans will be Darth Vader and the other Luke Skywalker. Then there’s me in the middle. The nerve of them to make me go out in this attire! Signed Princess Leia
Dear Princess Leia – I got a couple of things to say my dear. First – hubba hubba. I love that outfit on you – you are gorgeous. I’m sure the real Princess Leia is full of envy with the way you wear that hair. Second up – you have to admit that the costumes will be original and that’s awesome. Just think you will stand out among your peers. Everyone will want to be you. And you know for doing this, you will probably get extra treats. I say wear it with style and look on the bright side you gorgeous babe!
Dear Bacon – This is how we greet our human when he comes home from work. This just shows to him what we think of him as royalty by being his welcome committee. What do you think? Signed Two Statues
Dear Two Statues – It’s okay my friends. You can tell me. You really stay there when he comes home to remind him of the royalty YOU are and that it is feeding time. It will be our little secret and we won’t tell. Zip – not a word. I wish our stairs could support me on them… what am I talking about? We don’t have stairs – snorts!
Dear Bacon – This photobomb thing has gone too far. Every time I try to take a picture to post on my Pet Harmony account, this dog jumps in either behind, beside or in front. What am I to do? Signed Looking for Love
Dear Looking for Love – Shaking piggy head. You know my friend, brothers/sisters can be a pain in the rump in the house. Might I suggest you to post HIS picture on Pet Harmony. If he had a friend, he would surely leave you alone. That would give you more time to find you a mate.
Remember my dear friends that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please keep sending your pictures and letters to my email address.

Shivers – today’s post brings me shivers just thinking about it.
Today, I want to concentrate on something close to our hearts here at the Hotel Thompson – the St. Augustine Lighthouse. We’ve watched television shows highlighting the paranormal activity here – have you seen any?
During the 1870’s construction began on the lighthouse tower. The superintendent, Hezekiah Pittee, had two daughters drown in an accident. The girls liked to get in a work trolley and roll down to the waterfront. One day, the trolley didn’t stop and capsized into the water drowning the two girls. Since then, reports have been made of seeing two little girls standing on the catwalk.
There have also been reports of moving shadows, voices and unexplained sounds. Other people have reported seeing a dark figure on the stairway inside of the lighthouse. On one show of Ghost Hunters, Grant Wilson and Jason Hawes caught a dark figure on the steps moving and a woman’s voice asking for help. It was haunting to say the least.
Reports have also been made of the smell of cigar smoke and a man in the basement area of the keepers house. This man is believed to be a Civil War hero and a former lighthouse keeper, William Ham.
The lighthouse is now open to the public. The St. Augustine lighthouse even offers what they call a Dark of the Moon Tour that allows access into the lighthouse and keepers house at night. During this time, you are given a glow stick to light your way so that you may investigate on your own. Any takers? I’m game.
