Bashful is HOME!

21 Dec

Oh friends – I’m happy to say that Bashful made it back home over the weekend.  In fact, mom/dad went out Sunday morning.  When they got home, there was a special delivery on the porch – BASHFUL.  Remember he had been visiting Miss Harper Lee and her sister Tallulah Bee in New Orleans.    Of course, they couldn’t wait to get the box in and dig inside.  Boy were mom/dad happy – look at all of the awesome goodies.  There were marvelous hand pies from New Orleans from Haydel’s Bakery.  They had 4 different flavors – chocolate, lemon, cherry and apple.  The note from Miss Harper’s mom said to nuke a pie in the microwave for a mere 15 seconds and eat.  Well mom picked out the chocolate, nuked it and her and daddy then proceeded to make more aaww and oohh sounds in the kitchen than a porno – not that I would know anything about that….looks innocent.  The package also had beads, a shirt, cookies and red beans.  Remember last week when Miss Harper’s mom posted her Red Beans and Rice recipe?  If not, you can get it here.  My mom now has the beans and Bashful is begging for more of this delicious meal that he tried while in New Orleans.  So next week when my mom is on vacation, she is going to make this fantastic looking recipe.  We can’t wait… of course mine will be minus any pork products... you know for obvious reasons – snorts with piggy laughter.

AND did you see the magnificent piggy Christmas ornament?  Squeals with delight!  Isn’t it magnificent?  Mommy put it on our book shelf in the living room.  That way we can see it every day of the year – not just at Christmas time.  We absolutely love it!

And see the pop rocks.  That’s for Bashful and his new friend.  You know, in case they got hungry on the way home to the Hotel Thompson.

And of course you know when Bashful comes home, he brings a friend.  This time was no different.  Meet Lola from NOLA – isn’t she beautiful?  So flashy and it’s just meant for Lola to be laying around in those beads – don’t you think?   So our friends from New Orleans – thank you bunches and bunches. We love everything and will think of you often!!

    Bashful made it back to Bacon and the Hotel Thompson! Check out all the souvenirs he brought back. More importantly, check out Lola from Nola . . . his newest girlfriend. Loved having you in New Orleans, Bashful, and I’m so happy you made a love connection while you were here. 🙂
