And They Are OFF!

08 Dec

  A couple of weeks ago, I gave mom/dad a list of things I just needed to send off this year for Christmas around the world.  Now, mom looked at the list and just dreaded it because the woman *hates* shopping. Can you believe that my friends?  A woman that *hates* shopping?  Rolls piggy eyes – I know unheard of.  Now on the other hoof, dad LOVES shopping.  He can’t get enough of it.  In fact, personally I think he was a woman in a previous life – I’m just saying.

But daddy had this bright idea to come over him Sunday morning.  He said to mom, “You know, I bet the post office won’t be busy today.  Let’s go play Santa and Mrs. Claus and mail everything off.”  You know friends that this is not going to end well, right?

 So mom went through all of the shopping bags, made out all of her Christmas cards that she could remember and started bagging things up.  Of course, us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson tried to help.  So friends, if you get a card or a package from us and it has some anipal fur in it, you my friends just got a bonus – snorts with piggy laughter.  Now you need to figure out which one of us it came from because we were all trying to help mom out.  She might of gotten a little frustrated to say the least in our attempts to help.

This picture here to the right is one of the many bags that was loaded up in the Jeep for transport to the main post office that is open on Sundays.  You see, last Sunday mom/dad went there to get some customs declarations and there was no one in line.  Thus that is why daddy thought no one would be there this week.

Let me tell you something my friends,  daddy was wrongas usual.  The post office was packed!  There were 23 people in front of us and ONE teller.  Yep 23 people – mom counted them.  So they stood in line…and stood…and moved slightly…and then stood some more.

Finally mom had to walk because her back was hurting.  She went outside and came back in laughing.  Of course, daddy hadn’t moved that much in line.

He asked mom why she was laughing.  She told him and I have to admit that it was hilarious.  What was it?  Okay outside of the post office there are several signs that fully enforces “Do not back into parking spaces.”  The post office is really strict about this rule.  Mom is standing outside, sees the sign and looks around the parking lot.  That’s when she sees it and starts laughing… of course all the while whipping her camera out to take pictures of course.

 On the other side of the sign is the car that is what – backed into a parking space.  Oh dear Lord no.  We better call the postal police on this situation STAT.  What?  Oh yeah – hits piggy forehead – *THAT* is the postal police backed into a parking space.  What was I thinking?  Talk about setting the example by leadership huh?  Mom told this to daddy and he was just laughing up a storm.  Why is that some people don’t have to follow the rules huh?

 And we all know my daddy.  He really doesn’t have a serious bone in his entire body.  Maybe that is how he stays so young – acting his shoe size?  There mom/dad are standing in the slow line progressing closer and closer to the one teller.  Daddy gets this grin on his face, looks at mom and says whose envelope is this?  Mom looks and tells daddy.

Daddy then says, take my picture.  Mom says okay and clicks away.  Daddy then tells mommy, “You can tell Fozzie I touched her package”.

Shaking piggy head.  I told you my friends – he acts his shoe size!

      Snorts! We didn’t either but this is one of the main hub post offices and they are – we were so thrilled to know too. It’s much more convenient in trying to push – I mean – get mom to mail my stuff. XOXO – Bacon

    Post office? Bane of my existence. I got sent a parcel but was not there to receive it – they say it got delievered to the post office and waits for me there … I went there – nope, no parce for me … I phoned DHL … They mixed up my parcel with that of a man who has vanished … AAargh .. where is my advent calendar?! I suppose the posties are having a good advent with it.

      Post offices are not one of mom’s happy places either. I’m sure they are enjoying your advent calendar though 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

        Well, my cousin has made it herself and took it to a postoffice in time (11/26) – and I am not too happy with others enjoying it! Funny, same post office where mine got lost, I posted MY advent calendar to my cousin on the 30th – and it reached her in time on the 1st!

    But it’s a big shoe size, right? 🙂 It’s nice your pop can smile about things like that. In this day, it’s so nice to see someone enjoys ‘looking for a way to bloom where they’re planted.’ {quote by Christie Brinkley} ❤

      Exactly! My mom/dad are weird like that. They smile at a lot of strange things – rather be smiling and laughing than crying is what they always say. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    There is much merriment in Hotel Thompson in the ‘Merry Season” It is the ‘Carol Maeryment’ season; Or ‘Carol~Noël’ season. You keep your hoofs in line, Sweet Bacon. You have Mummy’s back! She’ll reach sainthood if she makes it through her years with your crew; A regular St. Francis of Assisi. He’s the only Saint I know. LOLROF barking.
    Hey if I can’t play with my name at Christmas then I’m hiding ’till 2016! I even had to recite a poem in grade school about the name Carol at Christmas. It didn’t bother me though. I embraced the attention and I was very shy. We should finish our decorating by tomorrow night.
    I have not slept since yesterday morning. Why? Because my MacBook went dark. Something is really wrong I think. But as long as it can share with my iPad it works normally. Every time I tried opening Facebook in Safari on the MacBook it locked and I had to force quit Safai and not use Facebook. Couldn’t even share to Facebook. Tomorrow will be set aside for my computer woes. The decorating takes priority! I’m sure I’ll sleep tonight. But first I need to finish a Project.
    Oh, I need to know. . .
    Does your Daddy’s hair give off enough electricity to light the bulb? 😎 ⛄️ 🎄

      snorts with piggy laughter!! You are way overly tired my sweet dear friend. Decorating finish and then off to bed you – I’ll snort you a story and tuck you in 🙂 Daddy’s electrical like an eel – snorts. And we are finishing decorating tonight too. I may even help mommy with the wrapping – Houdini will be cute wrapped up don’t you think? Or maybe Mouse Girl? Okay – now finish your project and I pray for you sleep tonight. XOXO – Bacon

    I think a citizen’s arrest was in line for the postal police officers… maybe make them stand in a long line to get booked on top of it!

      Amen to that my friend. That’s exactly what needed to be done. What’s good for one should be good for them all. XOXO – Bacon

    hahahaha your pawrents are the bestest of the world…. and if all people would be like your mom and dad, we had not only one sad face on that world.. I bet the sign is there because my mother visited that post office once. She actually thought the parking assistant screams like a Banshee when you do it right. Even my grampy was speechless although he knows her such a long time…. :o)

      Snorts with piggy laughter. You are so kind to us brother. I was going to mail you Houdini but the spoil sport at the post office said there wasn’t enough holes in the box. I thought one was plenty – snorts. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
