Travels in the South

21 Sep

Today we continue our travels in the south series.  I’m going to take you back to Tybee Island, Georgia.  Why?  Because that happens to be one of the places in the entire world that mom/dad can get to for an escape of reality to find inner peace.  You believe that, right?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

So there mom/dad was in one of the many stores on Tybee Island, wondering around aimlessly looking for ‘it’.  You do know what ‘it’ is, right?  When woman know they need something but can’t quite put their manicured finger on what it is they need.  You follow me now?  So there they were in this store, mom looks up and says to dad, “There it is!”  Oh dear have mercy is what I think dad mumbled.  What was it?  Take exhibit A in the picture to the left.  For a moment mom thought they were in the South Pacific on Easter Island.  Where else would they be finding this ‘dude’?

You know Easter Island – There are mysterious moai statues that are huge – averaging 13 feet and weighing 14 tons.  Although they stand silent reaching for the stars, they speak volumes on how did they get there and how were they constructed which to this day is a mystery.  So was mom surprised when she found “Junior” here on Tybee Island, Georgia of all places.  Now, mom thought Junior would be awesome standing either on her front porch here at the Hotel Thompson or on the deck.  See, mom’s weird like that.  And I’m sure us anipals would have endless nightmares of Junior chasing us in our sleep.  So, this is the one time that I can say dad talked some sense into mom… this time.  But if Junior is still there the next time mom/dad visits the island, I can’t promise it won’t come home… yay.

 And another “it” that mom found while shopping endlessly for nothing, was a treasured Tybee Island rock.  You know this rock did make it home to the Hotel Thompson and is now treasured with our other pet rocks.  They all get along and have been talking non-stop about the beach and the fantastic water.  I foresee a pet rock excursion taking place to Tybee Island in the near future.  Do you?

Now, I’m stepping away from this part on food – take it away mom/dad ❤

For obvious reasons, Bacon doesn’t need to see this.  This creation is one of mine and Jim’s favorite breakfast foods while visiting Tybee Island.  We even introduced it to Jean/Bill from Canadian Cats and to Fozziemom/Fozziedad from All Fur One and One Fur All when they visited.

It is hash browns well done crispy sprinkled with chopped up fried bacon.  See, that’s why Bacon didn’t need to see this.  It is insanely evil and so delicious.  You won’t look at plain hash browns the same way.

Hope you enjoyed this week in our Travels in the South series.  Until next time

      Junior would definitely be like the head rock here at the Hotel Thompson. If it’s still there next time, mom is so going to try to talk daddy into it. It would be kind of cool for sure. And those hashbrowns – I didn’t see the picture cause mom said it was Pig-Rated but daddy said they were the BOMB. XOXO – Bacon

        such guys are always heavy guys… the mama once thought she can load a 3 ft menhir stone in her car… think the farmer who offered this stone for free lays still on his field rolling around with laughter :o)

    OK ok ok…….now that wooden South Pacific tiki god thingie is pretty cool BUT those hash browns with bacon? WOWZERS… Mom makes hash browns a lot – even as a snack – and adding bacon means she’d have to COOK some which means I would GET some…… I’m all for her trying this out. Thanks!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Oh cousin – mom/dad said that picture of said hash browns was Pig Rated and wouldn’t let me look. But mom/dad said those hash browns were like the best things since sliced bread – awesome! I think Jean/Bill and Fozziemom/Fozziedad got to try them too when they were at Tybee Island. Mom/dad had to share with them. XOXO – Bacon

    I think we just have a new receipt on the menu, Bacon. Hash browns, never heared of it, but it sure is something to try 🙂 Pawkisses for a wonderful week ahead 🙂

      OMP – Now regular hash browns even this piggy enjoys. You just wash a potato, skin it (which I love to eat) and then grate the potato into shreds. A little butter in a hot skillet on the oven, put in the potatoes and let them fry right up with a crispy layer. YUM and YUM. XOXO – Bacon
