Mom Made a New Friend – Gulps

Okay mom you can leave your new friend at the store okay – gulps.  Mom and dad went to the pet store to get some things for me and my bros here at the Hotel Thompson.  While they were in the store, they came across this guy who was being ‘walked’.  Rolls eyes – really?  He needs to be ‘walked’.  And we all know my mom, she hasn’t met a stranger yet that she won’t talk to.

So mom – with dad in tow – walks up to said stranger and inquires his name.  His name was – are you ready for this? – Chester.  Yeah okay.  So mom did something so outrageous.  She asked if she could touch Chester.  Mom – what in the heck are you thinking??  Chester gave his okay… something about his tongue sending approval.  I don’t want to know.  So while Chester’s head was turned, mom petted him.  He wasn’t greasy or slimy or anything like that.  He felt weird to the touch.

Then mom did the most insane thing.  She told daddy to give her his hand to touch Chester.  Now understand, all of this time dad is standing there and doesn’t have a clue who or what Chester is… I mean would you guess snake with a name like that?  Well dad the ever loving trustworthy guy he is reaches out his hand and touches Chester.  That’s when the guessing game began – what is Chester.  Dad thought he might have been a bearded dragon or another type of lizard.  But bless his heart he didn’t freak out when mom told him it was a snake.

Would you have freaked?  I told mom Chester was off limits here at the Hotel Thompson.  I mean OFF LIMITS!

Travels in the South

Last November, mom/dad traveled to Chicago, Illinois.  Or should I say, mom planned a trip and told dad absolutely nothing about it until the car came and picked them up at the Hotel Thompson the morning of departure.  Mom had already packed everything for their adventure.  Why Chicago?  Well first up, my Aunt Tina lives there with my cousin Sherlock Bones.  Second up, daddy has *always* wanted to go to Ditka’s Chicago.  Are you asking yourself what is that?  Well Mike Ditka is a former football player, was an awesome coach and a television commentator.  He coached the Chicago Bears back in the day which was one of dad’s favorite teams.

In the next couple of weeks, we will be highlighting some of the food that everyone enjoyed during their trip to Ditka’s Chicago.


Doesn’t this dish look mouth watering?  We saved one of the coolest things we experienced at the restaurant for last.  A lot of times, mom/dad split meals when they go out.  This night was no different.  Mom/dad decided to split the 16 ounce slow roasted prime rib.  This plate comes with burgundy mushrooms (that melted in your mouth), horseradish cream and an au jus.  Mom also had the steak added with a horseradish crust.  They were expecting to get one giant steak delivered to the table to split.  But no.  The restaurant was so awesome that they went ahead and ‘split’ the steak in the kitchen and delivered two dishes like the one above, one for mom and one for dad.  Wasn’t that awesome?!  And the steak was so tender that you didn’t need a knife to even cut it.  It was juicy and had the best flavor with the horseradish and mushrooms.  Dad said he would give two thumbs up for sure!
