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.
Love is in the air here at the Hotel Thompson. Valentines Day is right around the corner. It’s a special day . You see mom and dad got engaged on Valentines Day many, many, many years ago – snorts.
Our pet rocks here are growing and want to do something special for Valentine’s Day. They are willing to be involved in the making of a love connection. Kind of like a twist between the Bachelor and the Dating Game.
We now have three men rocks – Manny, Benedict and Bashful. We also now have three women rocks – Princess Coralena, Virginia and Rockelle. We are putting love to the test and are counting on you for help.
We are going to let you our blog friends VOTE on who goes out on a date with who for Valentines Day. I will post their ‘date night’ on Monday, February 17, 2014. What they did, where they went, what troubles they got into. You know all of the juicy behind the scenes stuff.
Today we vote for the bachelorette. Who will go out on a date. Here’s a little bio of each for you to decide.
Bachelorette #01 – Princess Coralena
Princess Coralena comes to us from the happy place called Hawaii. She is a princess who loves romance, kind gestures and spice.
Princess Coralena’s view on love, “I am from the romantic islands of Hawaii where love is in the air at every turn. One day I will find my king to cherish and treat him like the rock he is. I love dancing – especially hula dancing – winks.”
Bachelorette #02 – Virginia
Virginia came to us from Stuart in Virginia. She is sassy. Don’t let that demure look of green eyes and red lipstick fool you. She is a vixen. She’s read more Harlequin Romance novels than mom – and that’s a LOT!
Virginia’s view on love, “I look for a rock not on his looks but on his undying love for me. I’m looking for my missing piece to my heart and when the matching piece finds me, it’s for eternity. I love camping out on the sofa and being a couch rock watching romantic movies while holding hands.“
Bachelorette #03 – Rockelle
Rockelle came to us from Fozziemum in Australia. She has the cutest, sexiest little accent. She loves to party and have a great time.
Rockelle’s view on love, “Love as much as you can as long as you can. I love long walks, cooking and eating. Who doesn’t like eating? My favorite date is holding pebbles in a mountain stream while watching the stars in the sky.“
So who will it be? Who would you like to see go on a date on Valentine’s Day.
