Oh friends, here’s another Texts from Bacon that you can’t miss out on. The things that are communicated here at the Hotel Thompson never stop. It’s like living in a circus sometimes! Hope you enjoy. My texts are in blue and mom’s are in white. Have a great weekend – I can almost see the light from here on the couch!
Barks! Hello sweet friends. Hope you have had a fantastic week. We all know my mom the shopper – barks with puppy laughter. Well today I am wearing one of her finds. She is always looking for new clothes for me. Cause you know a pup can *never* have too many shirts. Well, mom was shopping and found this shirt for me. This is a shirt from the Cesar Millan line. You know Cesar Millan – the dog behaviorist. This shirt is made really well and double stitched. I’m not sure what that means but mom got pretty excited over it and so did daddy. Then again, my humans are weird. On the bottom of the shirt (you can’t see it in the picture cause I’m sitting on it), it says Cesar Millan. Mom has priced these shirts before and they are a little costly. Well, she got this shirt on what she calls clearance for a sweet $5.00 – awesome huh?
Well my friends, hope you have a fantastic weekend. Now I leave you with a throwback with Jokes with Daddy. Hope you enjoy it!
Let me just start this by saying – snorts with piggy laughter. You *never* know what I will find on mom’s i-Phone when she is not looking. Sometimes it’s things that even I can’t believe that my humans do in public in front of other people. I just don’t get it – shaking my piggy head and oinking.
Last night mom came home from work and went to bed kind of early. She just wasn’t ‘feeling it’ she said. What it was I don’t know but from the way she was looking I don’t want to feel it either. Do you know what ‘it’ is? Do share.
So while mom went to bed, she left her cell on the sofa. I crawled up beside daddy and checked it out. That’s when I found this video that mom/dad took over the weekend while shopping. Oh dear – please don’t lock my humans up for their strangeness. Let me know your thoughts my friends. Is it time to buy those fancy white jackets that tie in the back for both of them yet?
Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY. This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better. Some of them, you may already know. We hope that you enjoy this series!
Name: Kinley and Brinley
Age: 1 year young
Location: Plano, Texas
What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? Kinley: OMD, I LOVE you!!! Can I hug you? Can I crawl inside you? Seriously, I just wanna melt into you. Brinley: I luvs you too. Oh, dat charm bracelet sure looks tasty. Are it edible? No?? Ok, back to da loving then.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? Brinley: I knew I was in my forever home right when I got here and met everyone. After all, how could they not love a three month old westie pup?? Kinley: I knew I was in my forever home right when I met my momma. I just tried to melt right into her – I knew my family was the one.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? Brinley: Probably when I got caught chewing up the cabinets in the kitchen. I was worried da peeps would be upset. Ok, my momma wasn’t exactly happy about it, but I got forgiven. Kinley on the other hand, she never thinks she’s done anything wrong, even when she has. Kinley: What, me do something wrong?? I don’t think I’ve ever done anything wrong. I just smile and forget all about it.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Brinley: Probably my dad. He was ready to let me run loose all over the house when I was a baby. My momma (and Kinley’s momma) nixed that idea – she didn’t want me chewing something I shouldn’t or making messes everywhere. Kinley: Well, it would have to be my momma since I don’t got a dad (my momma are Brinley’s momma and daddy’s daughter). But I has Brinley’s parents wrapped around my lil fluffy paw too – grandparents are great for spoiling you!
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? Brinley: That I’m just a cute little fluffy dog. People are always saying I’m cute on the walk. I’m a tough terrier! Kinley: I gotta agree with Brinley. It’s that I’m “cute.” Even when I growl people, they say I’m cute! What’s a girl gotta do to prove she’s tough?
Welcome back my friends to another edition of Travels in the South. Last week, I gave you some appetizers from a restaurant that mom/dad visited a couple of towns over from us. You can read about that here. Today I wanted to share the main course with him. Now after eating all of those wonderful appetizers, mom did the right thing. She went for a salad. Mom said their salads were awesome with all kinds of the goodies that she likes in them like cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, mixed greens and croutons. Doesn’t it look fantastic?
But dad, dad went straight up southern on all of us. He got what the restaurant has on their menu as Glynn Street Burger. Why is it called that? Well the restaurant is on Glynn Street of course – snorts with piggy laughter. Makes sense huh? But what is in a Glynn Street Burger is the question. Let me introduce you.
The Glynn Street Burger is an 8 ounce hamburger patty topped with a fried green tomato, pimento cheese and -gulps- bacon. If you need to click on the picture to make it bigger to get a better look at this magnificent burger, please do. You will want to see all of this goodness. Dad says it’s one of those burgers that is wet and delicious. You will need plenty of napkins… or as mom says a hose to hose you down before you get back in the car. This burger is messy but so worth the fight in getting it into your tummy. If you never had a burger with pimento cheese and a fried green tomato – don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. Dad went straight up southern with this meal. But as in the famous words of our favorite television detective, “One more thing.” See those tater tots in the plate. They are sweet potato tater tots. Mom doesn’t care that much for tater tots but on this date couldn’t stay out of dad’s plate. They were that delicious!
But wait a minute, mom has one more picture to share with you. These are the outside doors of the bathrooms – too cute huh??!!
Dear Bacon – Please make my humans stop. It rains a lot where we live. They insisted on getting me this raincoat. I see nothing funny. Yet, my humans laugh their butts off every time they put it on me. I don’t get it. Signed Sluggo
Dear Sluggo – Shaking my head. Pal, I have to say that raincoat says it all, especially with knowing your name now. You humans have a wicked sense of humor indeed. I wouldn’t be upset with them. Go with it and have a blast in your raincoat. Now, if they start laying down some salt where you walk, that’s where I would draw the line. Snorts with piggy laughter – yeah – draw the line.
Dear Bacon – I went on Pet Harmony and signed up for some adventure in my life. I don’t think this is what I had in mind for adventure. I was thinking a little cat calling at night, maybe some fence walking, trash can tipping and singing to the Cat Gods. I don’t think for some reason my user name helped me out with what I wanted. Where did I go wrong? Signed Chick Magnet
Dear Chick Magnet – Oh friend. I think you might want to rethink that user name. I think some of your fellow anipals to it too literally. But then again, you can’t claim false advertising. You are a chick magnet. Who knew you could get that many chicks on top of you.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes you are born this way. There could be a million reasons to make the perfect illusion but that would start a bad romance. Til it happens to you, don’t hate the paparazzi. They could make you speechless. So keep that poker face my friend. Signed Lady Kitty Kitty
Dear Lady Kitty Kitty – You do remind me of someone. I just can’t put my hoof on it. Maybe I’ll just dance and think on it for a while. I love your look my friend. It’s you and everyone is an individual. Wear it with pride always!
Dear Bacon – I’m not sure why my humans woke up from bed, saw me, screamed and passed out. I don’t get it at all. They were watching television and fell asleep on the sofa. I got bored so I crawled up on the ledge of the television stand and took a quick siesta myself. I woke up and stretched I guess about the same time they did. For humans, let me tell you, they can scream loud! Signed The Ringer
Dear The Ringer – Dear Lord have mercy. I think I would have lost my crap as well kitty. Don’t you scare people or anipals like that again. Do you not watch television at all?! I gotta go now. I think I tinkled myself.
Dear Bacon – Just wanted to give you a heads up on some sound relationship advice. Sometimes all it takes is one accessory to catch the ladies. I find that the perfect hat can start a wonderful relationship. You should try it sometimes my friend. Signed Cowboy Up
Dear Cowboy Up – Oh my! This sounds ideal for sure. I think I will go shopping for some accessories. How could a little piglet in a hat go wrong? Thanks for the great relationship help my friend!
❤ Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send your letters/pictures to me via email ❤
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!
Sunday, May 7, 2017 – The good thing about challenging myself to a perfect month is committing to exercise every day for at least 30 minutes. Once upon a time, it sounded so foreign to me to want to do this. These days, it’s normal talk. Funny how things change like that. Miles Moved: 1.47
Monday, May 8, 2017 – The best things about Monday is the start of a new week. Normally coming off of a weekend, I am so ready to walk some stress off. But with walking on the weekends now, it’s the fact that I *need* to really walk in a workout. Your life changes so quickly it seems. Just to think I use to be a couch potato that sat at my desk all day and on the sofa at night watching television. What have I become? Miles Moved: 3.20
Tuesday, May 9, 2017 – The days are getting hotter here. Soon I’m going to have to start changing clothes before I hit the streets during my lunch break. But it does seem like I’m seeing more and more people outside now as I walk. There was more people watching me over the winter months than I knew. People are watching me and that makes me feel safe in my walks through the neighborhood and building complex. You just never know who is watching. Miles Moved: 3.06
Wednesday, May 10, 2017 – I’m extremely busy this time of the month with preparing some monthly statistics. My mind is mush. So it really does feel to get away from my desk for a short period of time and walk off some steam. Too bad my mind doesn’t shut down while I’m walking. How can I walk and still configure numbers in my mind? Giggles – nerd never shuts down. Miles Moved: 2.26
Thursday, May 11, 2017 – Okay, I think I have this new way of living down pact with exercising and moving. Next week, new food choices will be put in effect. Of course my hub will act like I’m starving him to death – LOL. Must shop this weekend for all foods and restock the house with healthy choices. Miles Moved: 2.64
Friday, May 12, 2017 – I’m exhausted today. I feel wiped out like I’m trying to come down with a summer cold. Really Mother Nature? Please don’t do this to me okay. I really don’t have the time. Miles Moved: 2.40
Saturday, May 13, 2017 – What happened to the old me and where did she go? This was a day that did not end and I’ll tell you a secret. I loved every minute of it. I never would say that with the old me. We took my mom out today for Mother’s Day and afterwards went shopping to a couple of places. Then I went home and cleaned out my closet and dresser taking some items to Goodwill. Then I swept and mopped the entire house. Did a load of laundry and folded. Cleaned out the anipal rooms. What was I thinking getting all of this done in one day? So weird having all of this energy. Miles Moved: 2.85
Thoughts for the week: Another great week behind me to full rings every days on my Apple i-Watch. Go me! When I first started this challenge, I though it would be difficult. Yet I find myself having more and more energy instead. So very weird – I’ll take it anyday! My sister said that once you get on a row, you don’t want to stop. I so see what she is talking about! Let’s go for another perfect week my friends!
This week walked: 17.88
TOTAL 2017 Miles: 216.55
