If you sent me one in the past and it’s not posted below, please let me know 😦 I just now figured out that I can add a page for my special awards. They really do mean so much to me my friends and I really, REALLY appreciate them. Hogs and Snout Kisses – Bacon

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! ❤

I submitted a picture to my cousin Sammy’s Tuesday Teaser.
Heck – that is the *only* way I could guess and get it right – snorts with piggy laughter.
Thank goodness my Aunt Tina was traveling in Israel and sent me a beautiful picture of Temple Mount. Gorgeous!!
Thanks Cousin Sammy for showing my picture!

Another great and wonderful 31 Days of Spook for October 2015! This special badge was created by my brother Easy and his staff across the pond – thanks my friends! It is awarded to all of my friends who followed my 31 Days of Spook this year and survived the spooks, the ghosts, the ghouls and cemeteries and still came back every day. Without YOU my friends, I would just be scaring myself – snorts. Thank YOU for your friendship and your dedication to my blog. Please take this special badge and share on your blog 🙂 Until next year’s 31 Days of Spook, happy haunting!

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!

In honor of my sweet Nylablue – my kitty girlfriend. Gone but not forgotten. You will always be my love and have a place in my piggy ❤
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.

Every week my friend and cousin Sammy posts on Tuesdays a teaser of a picture that you have to guess where it is. I stink at this but I ❤ to play. I really need to watch more National Geographic and travel shows so I can pick up some pointers. So far, my guess of Earth is always right but just not specific enough – snorts. Where is that pet rock of mine Bashful when you need him? He’s the rolling stone in the family! Thanks Sammy for a great game every week – love you cousin!
