Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the back yard. It’s a good thing for privacy. There’s also a small creek that runs behind the property line. That’s a bad thing for the long slithery things that come out of it wanting to venture into our back yard – shivers. But, there’s other animal life back there. I’ve seen it all from my window in my bedroom.

There’s squirrels that hang out playing tree games jumping around and secretly taking our pictures for their photo albums. Sometimes they come up on the deck asking to borrow a cup of nuts. Personally, I think that Journalist Rocky the Squirrel sends over his family to sponge off of mom and dad. I’m just sayin’ – snort.

There’s also a family of rabbits that play in the woods and come into the back yard. They are fast. Last year, they were all babies and this year they have now grown up into beautiful adults.

Mom throws out bread and seed for them to eat. And, they love the clover in the back yard. There’s lots of that for their little buffet meals.

And let’s talk about frogs. Oh thud – the frogs are so loud at night! You can hear them from the creek croaking at night. It kind of calms you down a bit and it’s memorizing.

Other times you just want to hang out the back door and yell, “I’m fixing frog legs tonight, any takers?” Just piggy joking. We wouldn’t do that – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

And then, the other night we saw something that was unique and interesting. Mom, the ever ready camera gal, took a picture. Of course it came out blurry. I mean, come on it wouldn’t be a sighting if it wasn’t blurry, right – snort? There it was walking slowly through the back yard. It looked directly at her. I was in my room watching and it scared me so bad. What was it you ask. Are you ready for this? It’s unbelievable!

PIGGY DOWN! I was in shock. It had all of the signs of the legendary Bigfoot. Camera picture blurry, tall, hairy – it was BIGFOOT.

Then, I took another look. It had a slight resemblance to someone that I recognized. Shucks, all that fuss – my bad. It was just my dad walking through the back yard. Darn it – I was that close to being famous. Oh well, close though. I’ll keep looking. ūüôā

Travels in the South

Friends, this is a great one today. ¬†I know – I know. ¬†I say that every week on my Travels in the South. ¬†But listen – every week I think there is absolutely no way that mom/dad can top the week’s prior Travels in the South. ¬†And every week, this little oinker is wrong. ¬†Right after mom’s accident (4 weeks ago today), she was feeling really icky and low. ¬†So dad treated her to this masterpiece. ¬†What is it you ask?

Daddy was speaking with the owner of a local restaurant that we go to a lot and was telling him that mom needed something to pick her up. ¬†The manager sent over this creation on the house. ¬†This is called¬†Goo Goo Crunch pie. ¬†It has layers of chocolate fudge, peanut butter mousse and a nougat cream topped with caramel, chocolate sauce, fresh whipped cream and oh yeah – chopped up Goo Goo Clusters. ¬†Can you say insanely wicked good?! Daddy said that he could tell it was good. ¬†Not by the smile on mom’s face. ¬†Nope. ¬†Daddy said he could tell by the groans coming from mom. ¬†Oh my piggy heavens. ¬†Watch out Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. ¬†Daddy said mom had you beat on this day – snorts with piggy laughter!
