Greetings blogville friends!! Me and Auntie Sharon from Gentlestitches are co-hosting a Read Me A Story day scheduled for Monday, June 13, 2016.
We are asking for all of our friends to participate on this date by video taping themselves reading a story to peeps/anipals here on the blogs. Doesn’t that sound like so much fun? It can be a short story, the first chapter, something everyone knows or something new. And the video doesn’t have to be long, 3-5 minutes would be awesome. You know long enough for all of us anipals here in blogville to get involved in your reading. And don’t worry about video taping – it can be of the book, it can be of you reading it or it can be of your anipals while you are reading. Be creative and have fun with Read Me A Story my friends.
Please share this posting and badge with your friends on your blog.
We hope to see you reading a story next month 🙂

Do you sometimes look at a person and make a quick judgement of that person’s character without knowing anything about them? It’s only natural and I think humans do it all of the time. I mean personally, if I was to cross a clown – regardless if he looked nice or not – I would squeal like there was a 1000 hounds after me cause I ain’t talking to no clown. Capice?
But humans – they are different. Do they judge other peeps by what they wear? How they look? What they drive? Sure they do. That’s what makes us all different. BUT, are they missing out on some good friendships along their way in life by making harsh judgments?
Take this situation that recently happened with mom. Mom, dad and Nana went to a Mexican restaurant recently. There was a line and they were standing in a corner waiting for their name to be called. In the meantime, this family came in (mom and dad with their daughter who was about 8-9 years old). They put their name in to the hostess and stoodd across the room. The daughter wanted to be held so the mom picked her up. In doing so, her hands were full so of course the hub unit holds her purse (which is another posting for another day – snorts with piggy laughter).
Now, mom thought it was hilarious to see the guy holding the mom’s purse so she walks over to him. She gets really close to him and says, “That purse is awesome with your outfit. I give it a 10”. Now, the guy grins and says to mom, “Thank you darling. I try to coordinate.” It was totally hilarious and a great laugh was held by all. When mom came back, Nana was laughing and told her she was brave. Mom asked why and Nana told her why. This is what got our minds going about judging a book by its cover.
Would you have done this like mom? How about if the guy had long black hair, a beard and a mustache? How about if the guy was wearing all black with lots of studs and leather? How about if the guy was a biker dude? How about if the guy was packing heat and had a gun on his hip? Would any of this make a difference to you if he was a ‘biker dude’ or ‘the guy next door’?
I’m not saying that all biker dudes are nice – far from it. But we are saying that sometimes one needs to not make first judgments of someone. And let me tell you something, if anyone knows that it’s mom with her new purple hair. Some of the most friendliest and loyal friends can just be different 🙂 That’s your piggy thought for the day ♥

Dear Bacon – I don’t get it. Really I don’t. The humans come into this special room, sits on what they call the throne and then what? I don’t get it. Is something suppose to happen in here? Why do they sit on this thing with water in it? I almost fell in. Shaking my kitty head. Signed Mystified
Dear Mystified – Well my friend I’m here to tell you the secret. You see, I have learned from my staff here that this is *the* room. It’s where the humans do the most thinking. Yeah – it’s true. Sometimes dad refers to it as the ‘library’. My mom has even called it the powder room which is weird because I’ve never seen her with powder in there. But take it from me, it’s *the* room of the house because when the humans come out, it’s like their steps are lighter. Weird huh?
Dear Bacon – We ALL hate picture day. Doofus here wouldn’t smile for the camera. I was tired of being out in the hot sun on the hot pavement. Take the picture and let’s adios peeps. If this dog doesn’t smile soon, I’m going to let the claws of hell out and strategically place them on his derriere ever so gently. I’m just saying! Signed Too Hot for Pics
Dear Too Hot for Pics – Give me a second my friend. I’m making a note to self – never take pictures with Too Hot for Pics. Claws of Hell huh? I think I’ve seen them here at the Hotel Thompson. Maybe Doofus – is that his real name? – just wanted to feel your paws on his head gently massaging his temples. Maybe he has a headache from the heat too. Maybe he’s as tired as you are. Here – eat Snickers. You’re never yourself when you’re hungry 🙂
Dear Bacon – What in the heck is my owner thinking? Please tell me has he lost his everlasting feeble mind? It’s not bad enough that I have to wear the Cone of Shame that can almost pick up channels from Tokyo, but he has to sit me on top of his snowboard. Really? Signed Rolling My Eyes Although You Can’t See
Dear Rolling My Eyes Although You Can’t See – Now would be the time to leave him something in his shoes, near the bed or in the kitchen. You can always say you couldn’t find your litter box through your Cone of Shame. That’s what I’m thinking. Next thing you know, he’ll have you skates. Oh WOW – I’m so sorry for that suggestion – snorts out of comments….
Dear Bacon – What is up with this contraption? I feel like it’s a booby trap of some sort and now I’m stuck in it and can’t get out. How and why do girls wear these things. They can’t be comfortable – not by a long shot. Signed Tortured
Dear Tortured – I don’t know the girls wear them but if other girls are like my mom, it flies off at the end of the day almost striking anyone in the near vicinity. I guess you can call them deadly weapons. Be safe my friend.
Dear Bacon – That pussy cat is going to wake up with one bad heck of a headache. I was tired of him putting his paws through my front door and trying to grab at things in my house. Don’t worry – he’s okay. I’m just using him as a rug for a while and walking all over him for a change. Maybe that will teach the guy to knock first. Signed Jerry Mouse
Dear Jerry Mouse – Well I do hope that Tom Cat is okay. He looks a little flat – what did you do take a sledgehammer to the guy? I know if I was knocked out like that, I would definitely be showing you some respect. Enjoy your newspaper. I’m sure the fireworks will be blasting soon enough.
REMEMBER MY FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue sending me your questions and letters to my email address ❤
