Rocky’s Nut Brunch

Welcome my friends to another week of Rocky’s Nut Brunch.  Today I want to share something with you that I found and was in awe about.  In fact, I immediately had to call Bacon’s dad and tell him.  This was huge news.  Do you know who Lee Jun-fan is?  Maybe you know him better from his stage name – Bruce Lee.  Bells go off now?  He was a Hong Kong and American actor famous for his martial art skills.  He was even the founder of his own studio in the martial art Jeet Kune Do.  The man had skills upon skills with his moves.  He is also known for his quotes.  One of them being:

Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless and add what is specifically your own

That makes you think doesn’t it?  But I’m done yet blowing your mind on Bruce Lee.  Let’s talk about Bruce Lee way back when he was a teenager.  In 1958, what championship do you think he won?  Go ahead and guess.  I bet you never would guess the answer.  We were all shocked here at the Hotel Thompson.  What was it?  In 1958, Bruce Lee was the Hong Kong Cha Cha championship winner.  Stunner huh?  So there you go, that blows our minds.  Did you know this?

Paw Time with Houdini

See I can be a good boy… most of the time anyway.  But on this particular day, I had the patience of a saint!  Really I did.  Remember last Sunday being Mother’s Day?  Well, the one thing that my mommy doesn’t get a lot of is sleeping in on the weekends.  So Sunday, daddy got all of us up and out of the bedroom so mom could just sleep in.  He fed us all and we tried to stay quiet.  Of course daddy feeding us isn’t the same as mommy feeding us and talking to us.  But we gave her a day.

I sat patiently on daddy and the side of the couch waiting for mom to come out of their bedroom and down the hall.  I was on guard waiting… waiting… and then waiting some more… and then it happened.

Mom came out of the bedroom!

I’m not sure which one of us was more happy.  We barked, grunted and meowed and then dad grunted cause he was happy mommy was finally going to take him out to eat… of course her choice of restaurant for her day.  And then, you know letting those two out together there is going to be some trouble.  Check out the video they made Mother’s Day.  Shaking my head.  Even after almost 30 years, those two are gross.

Contest Winner

Do you remember our contest a couple of weeks ago here?

I introduced mom’s new ride Hot Lips which is a 2018 Toyota Prius Hybrid to you.  The contest was to guess –

How many miles do you think mom can go on ONE tank of gas?

The person who gets closest without going over will get a little something from the Hotel Thompson.  Remember, don’t go over on your estimate but get as close as you can.

First off – thank you to all of the people who guessed some great numbers. Mom was shy only by a couple of days of going almost ONE month without filling up Hot Lips.  As you can see from the picture below, mom went a total of 542 miles on ONE take of gas – can you believe that?!  We were so psyched here.  And now we are watching to see how far she goes on her second tank.

So the winner of the contest is katsrus!!

Conpigulations sweet friend.  Send me your address via email and I will get you something in the mail.

Thanks everyone for playing! ❤

Watch Out Ax Body Spray

  My mom and dad have got to quit going out and shopping.  Earlier today, they came home laughing.  Why you ask?  They showed me this picture – Bacon Body Spray.  ALL I have to say is, “What the piggy are people thinking?”

Bacon Body Spray – really?  No mom and dad didn’t buy this product.  I kind of wished they had though.  Exactly what does Bacon Body Spray smell like?  I don’t smell.  Really I don’t.  I’m very clean.  So how would people really know what Bacon Body Spray should smell like?  Can you tell me that my friends?

Has someone ever made a spray out of you?

Travels in Chicago –

 Did

 you think I was done highlighting some of the wonderful food mom/dad tried when they were visiting Illinois last November?  Of course not – snorts with piggy laughter.  How could

any visit be complete to the Chicago area without trying some of their famous Chicago deep dish pizza?  And of course, there was only one place they had to go for that –

Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria

First up, Aunt Tina said they had the best calamari.  So everyone ordered the Calamari Fritti which was lightly breaded and fried to perfection.  They serve this delectable appetizer with a side of cocktail sauce.  Of course, Aunt Tina made sure to spritz lemon all over these yum-yum’s before everyone dug into them.

And then everyone dug into some salad.  See even Aunt Tina made daddy eat some vegetables – mom was so proud.  Of course mom told daddy he had to eat the salad because the pizza takes time to cook.  That’s right.  Deep dish pizza takes longer to cook than the regular pizzas you might order from your fast food place.

 Then after a while, mom/dad/Aunt Tina said they heard angels singing and their individual pizzas were delivered.  Instead of getting one huge pizza, they all got individual ones with side salads.  These pizzas had sausage and black olives – and lots of sauce.

What did mom/dad think about this Chicago style deep dish pizza?  Dad is a huge pizza person.  He said that he ‘thinks’ he liked it but he would have to try one again to be sure.  That sounds like dad, huh?  But in the end, he said he would give it about an eight.

Mom said it was okay.  Mom is not a fan of a lot of sauce on her pizzas and of course this one is fully loaded with sauce.  And the crust is thick and a there is a lot of it surrounding the pizza.  Mom said the crust was kind of hard too.  There was lots of flavor but this pizza left mom on the it was okay side.  So for these reasons, mom gave it about a four.

But overall, everyone had a fantastic time at a famous landmark.  Would they go back again – of course they would!  There is more to the menu than just pizza.  And if you know anything about my mom/dad, they are professional eaters – snorts with piggy laughter.

Dear Bacon

20140111-200253.jpg

Dear Bacon – I gotta share my most funniest thing in the entire house to do.  Hang off of this magical roll of fluff!  Meows – it’s the bestest!  Have you ever tried this?  Signed Kitty Roll

Dear Kitty Roll – Snorts!  Looks down at my pot belly.  Nope.  Can’t say that I’ve ever done that before in my life.  For some reason, I don’t think this pot belly would allow it.  But you are right about one thing my friend.  That is a magical roll for the humans.  They love it!

.


 20140111-200303.jpgDear Bacon – I think everyone should show their colors and heritage.  This is me and my garb.  What do you think?  Signed Scotty

Dear Scotty – Dude, I think you look righteous in your outfit!  In fact, I could say that you rock!  I’ve gotta research my history and see what my ancestry is like.  Of course, whatever I find will look nothing like you.  You are gorgeous!

Dear Bacon – There we were in the parking lot of the local Petsmart.  Mavis bet me that I wouldn’t go in the store.  Well, I showed her.  I went into the store, said hey to the cashier who gave me a biscuit and left.  Easy as pie.  Okay, maybe not.  Maybe I took more than one cookie and maybe I left a little drizzle from the excitement.  Regardless I’m a bad boy.  Signed Bad Boy

Dear Bad Boy – WOW!  So that was you I heard squealing out of the local Petsmart parking lot.  Next time remember – sometimes one has to look like a regular guy to get away.  No speeding my friend.  You may hurt someone..


 20140111-200325.jpgDear Bacon – I’m the top champion of the hide and go seek series in our area.  I thought I would share this picture that made me top dog.  Signed See Me if You Can

Dear See Me if You Can –  Oh my goodness my friend. You are the world’s best at hide and go seek.  I wonder if you can teach me some of your tricks.  They are awesome!

Dear Bacon – My humans will get pay back from this outrageously stupid shirt they have placed on me.  I am not fat.  I am fluffy.  There is a difference.  Oh wait – is that food I hear hitting my bowl… gotta walk fast to it.  Talk Later.  Signed Puss in Shirt

Dear Puss in Shirt – Oh my.  Fat – nah.  Fluffy – sure.  Houdini goes through that all of time.  Extra fur well it does make you fluffy.  I see that.  Now you enjoying a little too much food – looks down at my pot belly – I can see that too from my prospective.  All of the time.  I say hey if it’s not broken, there’s no need to fix it.  As far as your human goes, pay back can be made… I’m sure you can come up with something.  A strategically placed fur ball in one’s human shoe comes to mind 🙂

.


REMEMBER friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please be sure to email me your letters and pictures.
