Friends – mine and Houdini’s journal is back up and running again. What? You didn’t know it was down because you haven’t been visiting? No way!
You can check out our journal here or by clicking on the link to the right of my blog titled Journal of Bacon and Houdini. Our journal is about the behind the scenes of our life here at the Hotel Thompson. Our humans don’t read it because well… that would be an invasion of privacy, right? So we talk about everything there – everything!
We hope that you enjoy it and leave us messages about what you think. You never know what we will be discussing 🙂
Love, Bacon and Houdini

Friends – this is an awesome day – National Sandwich Day! Sandwiches are so varied in how you can make them – what bread, what meats, hot or cold, grilled, pressed, open or closed, condiments, toppings – sigh – let me slow down. The options are out there my friends. Do you know how the day got started?
English history says that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich. He was a heavy gambler and would spend hours at the tables in London’s gambling halls. In 1762, he created the sandwich by putting meat between two pieces of bread. This allowed him to stay at the tables longer to gamble. Thus, the sandwich was made.
And do you know what Elvis Presley liked on his sandwiches? Peanut butter, banana and bacon (sorry Bacon) and then it was grilled. It does sound interesting in a round about way.
And do you have a Subway restaurant in your area? Today if you buy a sub and a 30 ounce drink, you get a free sub to share. Now that sounds like an awesome way to spend today.

Dear Bacon – What? Who are people to judge? There I was walking in the woods minding my own business. That’s when it crossed my path. It was so huge. So ugly. So mean looking. Shivers to Smokey the Bear. This thing was huge. What can I say? Even bears hate spiders. They are evil little creatures. Are you afraid of those eight legged freaks too? Signed Sitting on Top of the World
Dear Sitting on Top of the World – I agree with you whole heatedly my friend – SHIVERS! To be so small and somewhat innocent looking, those legs and eyes set me off every single time. They are a wicked bunch who think the entire world is out to get them. In thinking such, Yes. I can admit it. I’m so afraid of them. Heck we had one outside our front porch here at the Hotel Thompson that was so huge that it could carry me off. Is there any room up there for me too?
Dear Bacon – I’m just trying to set the record straight my friend. Not all of my kind is mean or aggressive. That’s how the bad owners try to make us feel. Take for instance me – I’m full of love and kindness as you can see by my friends. I love everyone and would not hurt not a soul. Signed Love Actually
Dear Love Actually – Bravo my friend. You make a great example in setting everyone straight. We are only as our humans are. Full of love and life shows the kindness in your humans – just like mine. We wouldn’t hurt anyone… except for maybe licks and kisses. Keep up the great work!
Dear Bacon – It’s time to have a talk with my master. After balancing the budget for him, there are some cuts to be made. I think we should start in his food budget and see how he likes it for a change. What do you think? Signed Bulldog Accounting
Dear Bulldog Accounting – I think you may be on to something my friend. If we cut their food budget and the things they enjoy, they might see the light when it comes to cutting our food supply and the things we enjoy. Great strategy. Let me know how it works okay.
Dear Bacon – I am ready for the battle. I will protect and serve you my oinker friend through thick and then. I have my sandals and sword and will travel for your safety. Signed Warrior
Dear Warrior – Aaww – that’s a great friend that would pick up, travel to my side and protect me through thick and thin. You are such a great and brave warrior. But in these parts here at the Hotel Thompson, I don’t have much to worry about. Not really. I think most days all I do worry about is whether or not tonight I’m having a salad or side dish from mom/dad’s dinner. That’s the highlight of my worries. You see, I have it made here at the Hotel Thompson. I know that. I say your talents and bravery should be for say a woman of your kind… that way you can win her heart forever every day together. What do you think? Keep me posted because I think personally any woman would be honored to have you at her side – her shining knight hero.
Dear Bacon – Roar! I’m a bear. I’m a fox. I’m a dog. Listen to me ROAR. Barks! No not really. You see I am a dog. However, I look like a fox or a bear. Neat huh? My humans love that about me. At first people are like WOW – look at that bear. Then they learn that I’m a poochie. Then they are like aaaww isn’t he cute? I’ll take it – I’ll take all of the attention I can get. Right? Signed PandaFoxPooch
Dear PandaFoxPooch – I think that’s awesome! You can have the best of three different worlds. Just think of the tight spots you can get out of with your multi-talents. Too cool my friend. And you have the entire package – the looks, the coloring and the roar and barking. Carry it with pride!
Remember my friends that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send your pictures and letters to my email address. 🙂
