Book Lovers Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Hello dear friends.  Today is the official Book Lovers Day.  Don’t you just love a great book.  Something that takes you away from the every day ordinary life that you have.  Something romantic – something exciting – something spy or a great mystery.  Anything that you can read to put you in another life or another space in time.  Reading can be for fun, educational, relaxing or research.  Reading can make us laugh, smile or even cry.

Today, I encourage you to find that interesting book – of any topic that intrigues you.  Open the book and start your journey anywhere – in the house, on your bed, in the grass, on a hammock.  Go away, even for a couple of hours, to a place that you don’t need a passport to travel.

I myself will be researching some recipes.  There are a couple of chickens and roosters that don’t know what time it is in our hood.  I’m researching ways to help them – even chitter chatter.  No really, just researching some interesting recipes.  Now my friends, go find your book!

Dear Bacon – Hide and Seek Edition

Welcome my friends to our Hide and Seek Edition of Dear Bacon.  All of these sweet kitties have won in various games of hiding.  After reading some of these letters, I couldn’t resist putting them all together for you today.  Hope you enjoy Dear Bacon as much as I love putting it together for you.

Dear Bacon – What’s more perfect then ‘blending in’ when the human tries to make the bed.  She can’t see me so she doesn’t know that I’m here.  This is perfect because that way I get to snooze all day.  I mean why not?  The human keepers have a job and that’s taking care of me, right?  Signed You Can’t See Me

Dear You Can’t See Me – Oh friend.  I can see now why you are a winner all the way.  I like the way you think.  And you are right.  The humans number one task is us anipals and in making sure that we are comfortable, fed and happy.  I say Amen to that my friend.  Carry on and sweet dreams.

Dear Bacon – For years when I came to my forever home, I watched my father and how he relaxed on the sofa after dinner every night.  After a while, I started doing the relaxation position.  I gotta tell you – it’s spot on!!  I highly recommend this to everyone – humans and anipals.  Don’t knock it until you try it is what I say.  Signed KO’d

Dear KO’d – I gotta tell you my friend.  That position does look comfortable.  You just kind of blend in to your surroundings.  I guess that’s what humans call a couch potato.  It’s unbelievable.  That position even makes your toes curl.  I love it!

Dear Bacon –  Can you pick me out?  Oh dude – I love this new rug that the master got.  It’s spectacular!  I can sneak over and lay down on it and no one ever knows where I am.  In fact, the human calls for me all of the time because she can’t find me and I’m right there in front of her.  Awesome huh?  I highly recommend this rug to your dude there Hemi.  He would definitely be able to use it.  Signed Hanging Out

Dear Hanging Out – OMP.  I can’t see you!  Now that is a cool rug there my friend.  I don’t think Hemi needs it though.  I can just see him doing that position hiding in plain view and me or my brother Houdini walking by and getting slapped extra hard on the fannies. Nope.  I think we will pass in passing this information on to the Master Hemi – snorts with piggy laughter.

Dear Bacon – I’m watching… always watching.  I want you to know that these humans do weird things in this giant litter box of theirs.  Can you believe when they use the liter box, they don’t kick the gravel over it?!  Isn’t that unbelievable?  And what the human mom does in the morning with the mirror.  OMC!  That’s some scary stuff.  She keeps telling me she’s “putting on her face”.  What happened to her face overnight?  Lord helps us piggy.  Things aren’t right in this room for sure.  You should check it out one of these days… of course undercover.  Signed Psycho in Training

Dear Psycho in Training – OMP.  They do what in their special room?!  That sounds so weird and strange.  I don’t get why they don’t cover their poo.  It’s the thing to do.  Poo, kick over and walk on.  No wonder they are always so stressed.  Tell me more the next time you hide out in there okay.

Dear Bacon – Look closer.  Nope.  I’m not a rug.  I’m laying on a rug.  I’m deep undercover… on a rug shall we say.  Do you do this deep undercover activities?  Please do tell.  Signed Snowball

Dear Snowball – Oh my – I just see a rug.  You are so deep undercover.  Me going undercover?  Only if I’m in mom/dad’s bed under the sheets.  That’s about all the undercover I get to do with this pot belly.  You keep it real okay my friend.

Dear friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your pictures and letters to my email address.
