February 15, 2016 – Anipal Appreciation Day!


What a Day This Was – SQUEALS!  Me and my cousin Sammy came up with an idea to celebrate our fellow anipals and to make new friends in the form of Anipal Appreciation Day.  This was our first year and what a success to meeting so many great and wonderful new anipals and peeps.  So shall it be written that from here on out every day after the the humans day of love we shall celebrate the love of fellow anipals on February 16th.  If you joined us this year – thank you – you were amazing!  Mark your calendars for next year to have another great party! ❤

Thanks Cousin Sammy for showing my picture!

OMP!  My cousin Sammy does weekly Tuesday Teasers.  Of course, I can never guess the picture.  I so have to travel more!  But on this date along with two other people, we all checked in at the same time – 9:01 AM.  Okay, maybe this little oinker didn’t but my mom did from her food blog so it’s still in the same family.  Awesomesauce!  I guess mom finally caught on to me setting her alarm at zero five hundred dark on Tuesday mornings – snorts!

IMG_0916This “I Survived Bacon’s 31 Days of Spook” badge goes out to all of my followers for the month of October.

October is a very important month on my blog where I highlight stories of something spooky, things that go bump in the night and/or ghosts or haunted places.

October’s 31 Days of Spook can’t be a great thing without my followers and friends that read the stories and share their comments/stories.  I appreciate your friendship so very much.

Please post this badge on your blog to share with others so they can also look forward to my 31 Days of Spook!  Happy Haunts!

I hosted my first contest – “Elf on the Shelf Contest” in September 2014.  The goal was to send emails to me in why you deserve the captured elf on the shelf we had here at the Hotel Thompson.


The winner was announced on 09/11/2014 on my blog and it was my friends Samuel and Wallace in South Africa – way to go!!  Can’t wait to see what kind of special powers your captured elf has around the holidays.  Congratulations my friends.
