Welcome back my friends to another edition of Travels in the South. We have been talking about our visit with our great friends Bill and Jean from Canadian Cats. If you have missed the previous editions, please check them out here: Red Lobster; Fogo de Chao; Stately Oaks.
This week, we are talking about what those crazy four peeps did on Friday, 02/19/2016. Believe it or not, this day was toned down a bit. You see mom had a doctors visit in the afternoon so why not plan around that and make it a family event – snorts. More about that in a minute.
To start the day, we took a family tour of our local spa. Why do you ask? Of course to get all of our nails done. Mom just had hers done so she took photographs. And yes, we mean ALL – even the guys.
Let’s start with Jean here.
Isn’t that cute? Jean is behaving at this particular moment and she is at the end of getting her nails finished in the drying machine. What? You don’t think that Jean misbehaves? Oh my friends – you would be so wrong. You are inquiring what am I talking about?
Let me present to you exhibit A. Jean so openly smoking in the spa. What shame… what enjoyment she looks like she is having… what audacity. She just pulled out that cigarette and started smoking it right there and then. Was getting those nails done that satisfying? Snorts with piggy laughter.
She puffed like there was no tomorrow and she wasn’t holding prisoners. Everyone was openly staring – Jean puffing and mommy snapping pictures. Then everyone started laughing.
It’s really hard to keep a straight face when you start eating your cigarette. The crunch of the candy kind of gave it away. But hey, you gotta say that Jean has style, right?
When’s the last time you saw candy cigarettes? Particular Lucky Lights? I snorted so hard when I saw these pictures. What a hilarious time huh?
And look at Jean’s finished nails… pretty huh? Cute little paw prints. I wonder who that print reminds her of… Shoko or Kali?
And like I said, don’t forget it wasn’t just Jean getting her beautiful nails done. Oh no. Let’s talk about the guys here too. There’s always a first for everything and when you are here in the south – do as the southerners do. What do you ask? Well dad gets his toes done all of the time. So, Bill was swayed into it as well. This is Bill and Daddy during their bonding time.
Now that is some kind of spoiling, you think? Hot towels on your legs, massages, toes all looking beautiful – do you think by the looks on the guys faces that they actually enjoyed their little spa treatment?
I say yes. Of course after this kind of treatment, it was time to do something exciting – everyone went shopping!
After shopping, it was a quick bite to eat and then to mom’s doctors appointment. It was time for her mammogram follow up. You see, mom has been getting tested every 3 months for a while to check on a certain spot. Well guess what? It must have been having friends there to hold her hands because she was checked and cleared for a 6 month check up – what a day huh? We were *all* thrilled to hear about this current change.
After the visit to the doctors office, everyone came back to the Hotel Thompson for a visit. Of course, I was at camp this week. Mouse Girl was in hiding. She so doesn’t take for visitors – spoil sport huh? Hemi was acting like dad’s parrot by being on his shoulder – rolls piggy eyes. Hemi has pirate issues. And of course, Houdini was out making friends… of course he barked until Jean gave him some treats. Then he was hers ❤ Hope you enjoy this pics my friends. Remember, come back next week to see some more Travels in the South.

Looks like Houdini was very interested in your visitors. Can’t wait for the next installment.
03/23/2016 at 12:46 pm
Snorts! Thanks my friend. From what I heard, he was barking like a little idiot for the longest time. Then daddy told Jean to give him a treat – the easiest way to that puppy’s heart is by food it seems. XOXO – Bacon

sue ellen....Lucy & Mac scotty dogs..

Bacon..our dad gets his ‘paws’ and ‘hooves’ trimmed up at the spa too ! He complains that he gets an inch shorter when his ‘hooves’ are sanded down. No one listens to him though…teehee.
Our mom really likes going to the spa. As for us Scotties , well ah, we like spa days when they are over for us and we are on the way home. ☺

Snorts!! Spa day is a family thing here at the Hotel Thompson. Mom/dad go once a month for their TLC treatment. They come home in such a better mood. XOXO – Bacon

What a lot of fun and how great to go from 3 months to 6. I am humbled because I whine because I have to go every second year. I wont be whining any more. I loved the pics, especially the Spa day. What an ingenious idea for travellers. ❤️
03/24/2016 at 9:37 am
Oh Auntie Sharon – hogs and snout kisses. Mom has been on a watch list for a while now so she was scared. To go down to a 6 month check is such a blessing for sure. And they had so much fun on their spa day. Secretly I think Dad and Bill had the bestest time ever having the ladies work on them. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Such adorable paw prints on your mom’s own paws! 😉
03/28/2016 at 11:16 am
Jean looks so adorable with her paw prints. I’m sure they remind her of Shoko and Kali every time she looks at them. I think my mom should get a little piggy on hers. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

MOL MOL that cigaret made us laugh… We can imagine how people stared at it, without saying anything…MOL 😀 We love the nails, she must have missed Shoko and Kali very much ❤ The pictures are great again! No fishy in the water…for yours truly eventual..MOL ? Pawkiss 🙂 ❤

The smoking was so much fun for sure and we all had such a blast getting all fancied up – I think the guys had more fun than us being pampered. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
