Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – They say that after you have been with your humans for a while, you start looking like each other.  I think my human has rubbed off on my slightly. I’m cool with that.  You should see my human.  He says I’ve rubbed off on him as well  Signed Domguise

Dear Domguise – WOW.  That’s all I gotta say.  If this is what has happened to you, I can only imagine what your human looks like.  You do make the look though my friend.  Really, you do.  Take care.


Dear Bacon – Don’t let my size and cute looks fool you.  I’m one crazy and tough quack.  This is a deadly beak and I can take care of myself.  Whatcha looking at pig?  Signed Duck Off

Dear Duck Off – Hey, no problems here my friend.  I know when I’m up against a touch quacker.  I think it’s in your beady eyes that you mean business and will not put up with any crap from anyone.  Shivers – you scare me.  You really do.

 


Dear Bacon –  We just wanted you to see that you weren’t the only cute miniature.  Look at us – we rock this barn here at Old McDonald’s farm.  Signed Goat Twins

Dear Goat Twins – OMP (oh my pig!)  You two are the most adorable things I’ve seen in some time.  How does your humans not just pick you up and squeeze you?  Rock on my friends.  Ya’ll are totally cute as buttons!


Dear Bacon – I was on my walk the other day in the neighborhood minding my own business when I came across such a weird animal.  I’m not sure what it was.  It hopped and made little sounds.  We got nose to nose.  Do you know what this thing was?  Signed Boo

Dear Boo – It’s a rabbit!  Look at those ears and that adorable little cotton tail.  WOW – I have rabbits in my magical backyard but nothing like that fancy one.  So cute!

Snorts – Is *Your* Refrigerator Running?

We would like to say that ours was but last Friday, our refrigerator decided that it was done.  Tired.  No longer wanted to exercise.  Daddy got a drink out of the fridge Friday morning, went to drink it and it was hot.  That’s when he decided to touch everything in the fridge and everything was hot.  So dad called mom who was on the way to the worky place with the great news.  You just know that made mom’s Friday morning.

So she checks in with work and then takes a couple of hours of emergency leave to come home.  Once home, mom checks out the fridge and concurs – it’s not working.  Now mom tells dad that the fridge they had was huge for two people.  So they decide rather than fixing it because of it’s age, they go price a new one because the repair wasn’t going to come cheap for the old one.

So my friends, let me introduce you to our new fridge.  A stainless steel Whirlpool.  It fits better in the kitchen and mom says it actually holds more than the old one.  I think it’s fantastic.  More room means more groceries for me.  And doesn’t it look better?  Now mom/dad just have to remember that the fridge is on the bottom and the freezer is on the top.  It was the opposite on the old one.  And yep, dad has already hit his head several times going into the fridge.  Snorts with piggy laughter.  Good thing he has a hard head.

Journey with Friends – Week 4

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


January 22, 2017 – The day of rest.  Today calls for cleaning, laundry and FOOTBALL.  Too bad the i-Watch doesn’t keep up with the day-to-day activities that we do.  You know what I mean.  For example:  shaving aerobics.  It has to account for something twisting yourself like a pretzel to shave your legs.  Or scrubbing the toilet/shower/tub areas.  All of that moving around, grunting and groaning.  What about cleaning the litter box?  Or making a king size bed by yourself.  LOL – some things just don’t get counted.  Miles Moved:  0.70

January 23, 2017–  Back to work – back to grind of things.  I think I like taking a walk during my lunch ‘break’.  It gives me energy to survive the rest of the afternoon.  I’m kind of ticked though because my walk didn’t make my exercise circle – it did make my activity circle though.  It’s weird.  I’ll look at it again tomorrow to see what’s going on.  Miles Moved: 2.08

January 24, 2017 –  Still feeling good and motivated which is awesome.  I can’t remember ever changing my eating habits and feeling this good.  Totally weird for sure.  I like to take my walk between 11-11:30am at work.  This is before people start going to lunch so there’s still a lot of people in their offices just in case I need someone.  Funny how we think about that huh?  But I’m a safety girl – LOL.  And again, my walk didn’t make my exercise circle on my i-Watch.  Stomping my southern feet 😦  I’ll give it one more shot tomorrow to see what I’m doing wrong.  Miles Moved: 1.79

January 25, 2017 –   Still walking the parking lot.  I feel good afterwards.  Do I want to before hand – absolutely NOT!  But in the end, I know it’s good for me.  And it’s only been since the beginning of January, but I feel my body changing in good ways – my legs are getting stronger – my pain levels are not so high lately.  That’s totally awesome.  Miles Moved: 2.27

January 26, 2017 –  I almost have a perfect week in my activity rings.  As long as I’m pushing it and my activity ring circles, I feel great about myself.  From going completely sedentary to moving, it feels good.  Yep, I can’t believe I said that.  🙂  Miles Moved: 2.05

January 27, 2017 –  Friday!  Can I get a YES!  Of course, Friday wouldn’t be Friday without something happening, right?  I don’t walk on Friday’s at work because I want to walk on Saturday with the hub unit.  We shall see how this works for sure.  Miles Moved:  1.43

January 28, 2017 –  Well, one of the appliances decided to quit working at the house (we will post about that later).  Stress is a wonderful thing – ha!  Lot’s of waiting today for the delivery man… I mean lots of waiting.  Miles Moved: 1.47

Thought of the week:   I think I finally found my groove.  I walk at work Monday thru Thursday.  Then I pick up one day on the weekend to walk with the hub unit.  It’s taking me the entire month of January but I think I have a system now – yay!  My next weigh in is 02/01/2017.  Hopefully there will be a good change going south on the scales.  I hope so… I really hope so 🙂


This week walked: 11.79

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  45.23


Weigh In 01/15/2017:  -6 pounds

National Corn Chip Day

 

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

.

.

January 29th is mandated as National Corn Chip Day! Corn chips are right up my alley if you know what I mean. Who can turn down a good chip? Can you believe that 50 years ago (way before this journalists time), few Americans even knew what corn chips were? That’s amazing to me. Today, we can’t imagine life without those tasty little morsels. They were first marketed in 1961 and have been going strong since.

So, in honor of today being National Corn Chip Day – go out and eat some chips… with salsa… with dip… plain… with a friend… yeah, I know the pig is going to get his share!  I think I even heard his humans saying they were going to put corn chips in their chili for dinner tonight.  Now *that* does sound lip smacking good!

Paw Time with Houdini


Hello friends – BARKS!  I hope you have had a wonderful week.  I wanted to share a picture with you that my brother Bacon took of me a couple of weeks ago.  Mom laughs at it and says it’s cute while dad says it’s a huge lie.  What’s the lie?  I think mom has it right and my shirt tells you everything about me.  Right?  I mean I am the angel here at the Hotel Thompson.

This weekend we are resting up for the big game.  You know the Super Bowl.  Our Falcons right here from Atlanta will be playing.  Dad says it’s going to be an awesome game.  We can’t wait – Go Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the rest of the players.  Rise Up!

Now I leave you with Jokes from Daddy.  Hope you enjoy and have an awesome weekend friends.
