Bashful Came Home… and He’s Off Again!

14 Dec

 Squeals to the piggy heavens!  My sweet Bashful came home Saturday from spending Thanksgiving with my cousin Sammy in Virginia.  Let me tell you something my friends, we stayed up so late Saturday night listening to stories and meeting his new “friend”.  OMP – can you do a rock whistle?

 She came out of the box all giggles and laughs.  In fact, she bounced out so fast thank goodness daddy caught her when she was blowing kisses at him.  She is a looker!  Also when Bashful came out of the box, his little face was full of red lipstick.  I wonder what they were doing in the box together for the ride back home to the Hotel Thompson?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

    But my friends, we had to ask the beauty what her name was.  She has been very shy in saying it.  We finally got it though – Virginia Blue Eyes.  Isn’t that beautiful just like she is?  She told us stories of her home in Virginia and that she has always wanted to travel to other parts of the world – especially here in the south where she fits right in.  Dad says that she is kind of like Marilyn Monroe – old school movie star.  Personally, I’m thinking she has all of the other rocks and mom/dad wrapped around her.

Also in the box was Mrs. Smith and Mr. Fields piggy ornaments.  Aren’t they cute as buttons?!  We have them in a special spot in our living room now and we LOVE them.  Thanks Cousin Sammy for the great gifts and for hosting our little guy Bashful.

And you know what my friends?  Bashful got mailed out Sunday to his next destination.  It was just a short layover here overnight and then off to the wild blue yonder.  Where will he land for Christmas?  Who will host him next?  Will it be warm or cold?  We shall see soon!

    Oh my. Miss Virginia Blue Eyes is a real looker, Bacon! Mr. Smith and Mrs. Fields are adorable ornaments….can you get them on the tree? We have a santa that hangs out on the back of the chesterfield cause he’s too big for the tree.

    Oh where oh where will Bashful be for Christmas and more importantly will Santa find him there??? Glad you got the scoop from “Miss Blue Eyes” as to her actual name. She wasn’t gonna tell us. We thought she had the most beautiful sparkly eyes though – no wonder Bashful had a bit of a crush on her. Glad you like Mrs. Smith and Mr. Fields.

    Hugs, Sammy

      They are perfect cousin Sammy – We absolutely love the Smithfields. They fit right in here at the Hotel Thompson as Miss Blue Eyes. She’s so sweet! You should have seen her kissing Bashful goodbye yesterday – of course I held mistletoe over their heads – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    wow that was a short time he was at home… maybe he still needs his freedom and can handle that girls and pebbles only for a short while?

      Snorts! He is a traveling kind of guy breaking rock hearts everywhere he goes… but at least they all get to come here to live in happiness. Virginia Blue Eyes called him Elvis before he left – snorts XOXO – Bacon
