Bashful is HOME!

Oh friends – I’m happy to say that Bashful made it back home over the weekend.  In fact, mom/dad went out Sunday morning.  When they got home, there was a special delivery on the porch – BASHFUL.  Remember he had been visiting Miss Harper Lee and her sister Tallulah Bee in New Orleans.    Of course, they couldn’t wait to get the box in and dig inside.  Boy were mom/dad happy – look at all of the awesome goodies.  There were marvelous hand pies from New Orleans from Haydel’s Bakery.  They had 4 different flavors – chocolate, lemon, cherry and apple.  The note from Miss Harper’s mom said to nuke a pie in the microwave for a mere 15 seconds and eat.  Well mom picked out the chocolate, nuked it and her and daddy then proceeded to make more aaww and oohh sounds in the kitchen than a porno – not that I would know anything about that….looks innocent.  The package also had beads, a shirt, cookies and red beans.  Remember last week when Miss Harper’s mom posted her Red Beans and Rice recipe?  If not, you can get it here.  My mom now has the beans and Bashful is begging for more of this delicious meal that he tried while in New Orleans.  So next week when my mom is on vacation, she is going to make this fantastic looking recipe.  We can’t wait… of course mine will be minus any pork products... you know for obvious reasons – snorts with piggy laughter.

AND did you see the magnificent piggy Christmas ornament?  Squeals with delight!  Isn’t it magnificent?  Mommy put it on our book shelf in the living room.  That way we can see it every day of the year – not just at Christmas time.  We absolutely love it!

And see the pop rocks.  That’s for Bashful and his new friend.  You know, in case they got hungry on the way home to the Hotel Thompson.

And of course you know when Bashful comes home, he brings a friend.  This time was no different.  Meet Lola from NOLA – isn’t she beautiful?  So flashy and it’s just meant for Lola to be laying around in those beads – don’t you think?   So our friends from New Orleans – thank you bunches and bunches. We love everything and will think of you often!!

My Trouble Maker Daddy

   The other night while mom and dad were laying in bed they were talking about fun times that have happened.  Daddy brought up a story that was hilarious and I had to share.  You see, my daddy has a warped sense of humor.  I can admit that – the nut doesn’t fall from the tree here with me – snorts.  And it doesn’t matter where daddy is because he can find trouble.

It was maybe five years ago when dad’s mom was still with us.  Dad, mom and his mom all went grocery shopping together.  Dad went up to the bakery with by himself looking at all of the cookies and was drooling.  Did I mention that daddy is a cookie freak?  He loves them ALL – it doesn’t matter what kind.  He was kind of being funny and asked the attendant for a free cookie.  The attendant said, “If you bring your mom, I’ll give you a free cookie” and she just smiled.  What she didn’t know was this was now a challenge for dad – snorts and rolls with laughter.

He went through the store until he found my mom and his mom.  He told them that they needed to come to the bakery with him.  He didn’t tell them why.  So there they go – all three of them to the bakery.  Dad saw the same attendant and told her, “I brought my mom” then he just grinned.  Well of course, he got a free cookie.  Shakes piggy head.  What my dad will do for a cookie!
