Collect Rocks Day

16 Sep

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Today, September 16th, is Collect Rocks Day!  This day is right up Bacon’s alley.  You know because Bacon collects rocks.  Not just any rocks but pet rocks.

Collect Rocks Day is a day to enjoy your pet rocks.  Pet rocks are not just stones that sit there all day.  They are individuals.  They are pets.  They have wonderful attitudes. And might I add – they are PROS at Hide and Go Seek.  One time, Bashful hid in the fish tank and it took us almost three days to find him – that was fun!  So you see, they also have a sense of humor.

It doesn’t matter what they look like.  It doesn’t matter what economical background they come from.  All that matters is the love and fun that is had with your rocks.  Sounds like humans should take note of this huh?

So from all of the rock clan here at the Hotel Thompson – Happy Collect Rocks Day!

Oh and P.S.  Don’t let Bacon’s mom fool you.  She has a rock fetish too.  She wants to collect her very own rock – as in this picture of Rock – chitter chatter – isn’t she funny!?

        That might be a great idea for sure! If you find “The Rock” that mom is looking for, can you mail him here? XOXO – Bacon

        Oh brother. Let me know. Maybe your mom can share The Rock with my mom. Have you ever heard him sing It’s a Beautiful World? Love it. It makes mommy swoon. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts – Are they awesome? I’ll tell you brother, the rock pals here make a LOT of noise when you leave the room. They would absolutely talk your ear off! XOXO – Bacon

    I’ve collected rocks since I was a kid. I pick them up in my travels, especially when visiting cemeteries! I’ll leave the big Somoan kind to your mom.
