National Fried Chicken Day – Oh Have Mercy!

 

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world! 

 

 

July 6 is National Fried Chicken Day.  On this day, enjoy your crispy, tasty, finger licking good fried chicken.  Fried chicken has got be one of America’s favorite meals.  You know right up there with apple pie!  And you know what?  Fried chicken is good hot or cold right out of the refrigerator. 

We all know that fried foods aren’t good for us but every once in a while, you just have to splurge on some great chicken. And today, I *had* to mention this national holiday because Bacon’s mom is a huge fan.  No, let me change that.  Bacon’s mom is a ginormous fan of the fried chicken.  And yes, even the little booger Bacon likes his share as well.  It’s tasty – however you get it. 

And the good thing about fried chicken is that it comes in many different forms.  Almost everyone thinks that their recipe is the best recipe.  You have KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) when it was really KFC – not this newer lighter better for you version they are putting out there.  Heck, that’s another news update for another time!   You also have Church’s which is really good.  Their pieces of chicken are huge and oh so wonderful.  And, you even have a place called Bojangles that has really good fried chicken. 

Then, you have Bacons parents favorite chicken – Popeyes.  You can get it either spicy or mild.  Mom likes it mild and dad likes it spicy.  That Bacon, he eats it either way.  Look at that picture of the chicken.  Doesn’t that fried chicken look just about next to perfect?  Can you tell that we are from the south and we adore chicken?? 

So, on this day – you enjoy some fried chicken from your favorite place – even if it’s your own kitchen.  I am totally sure they will be having Popeyes at the Hotel Thompson!

Dear Bacon,

Hey – we’re just hanging around in underwear. I mean if the humans can do it, why can’t we, right? Signed – Trio Fruit of the Loom

Dear Trio Fruit of the Loom,

UUMM, okay. I completely understand. Some people here at the Hotel Thompson like to run around in their Fruit of the Looms too – not mentioning any names – snort snort dad snort snort. Whatever makes you comfortable, go for it my friends!

Dear Bacon,

Wwaattzz uupp? Hey we all gotta have some fun in life my friend. Take it from me, don’t sweat the small stuff. Turn it around and have fun. Life is WAY too short. Signed Monkey Man

Dear Monkey Man,

Hey, you’ve got the right view in life. I like that. Here’s a Waahhhatt’ss uuupp back at you. Keep cheerful Monkey Man!

Dear Bacon,

Hey look. I don’t want any problems here. I just want to eat my little bamboo stem in peace and walk away. I’m not trying to cause any problems. Okay? Signed Panda Express

Dear Panda Express,

Why am I craving Chinese food now all of a sudden? I don’t get it. I have no problems with your little snack man. You go right ahead and eat that piece of grass bamboo. I’m more of a fruits and veggies kind of piggy any who. Good eats and take care my friend!

Dear Bacon,

Do you know how hard it is to write that great American novel? This is me on my thinking beanie bag with my books and laptop. Sometimes it is so hard to concentrate. What do I do for inspiration? Signed Next Great American Dog Writer

Dear Next Great American Dog Writer,

I do really understand your dilemma. It’s hard to be a writer. I know first hand from my experience in writing my blogs. The clue is to never give up. Inspiration comes to you when you are least expecting it. Sometimes I find it from watching television or watching the humans around here at the Hotel Thompson. When something hits you, write it down as a ‘go to’ when you are least inspired. Keep writing my friend.

 

20130601-000648.jpgDear Bacon,

Sometimes one has to sit back, let it all out and meditate to take away the stress from the day. Do you ever do this? Signed Lemur Lips

Dear Lemur Lips,

Yes. I do meditate and I have even attempted piggy yoga at times. I’ve never let myself go as far as you have my friend. My tongue doesn’t stick out. Although you have quite an interesting and long tongue, I just don’t think mine would meet the standard. Keep destressing my friend!

 

Remember friends – keep sending your pictures and questions to me at baconthompson@gmail.com
