Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER my dear friends

((HOGS AND KISSES)) it’s a wonderful and joyous day!

I love Easter.  I love everything about it.  I love the fun.  I love the excitement.  I love the actual meaning of Easter.  I love it all!

Mom makes is so special for all of us.  Mom gave the purr things their little basket.  She was going to take a picture of it but too late – they got to it.  There was little pieces of grass everywhere from their straw basket.  They got cat treats, a bag of Iams – their favorite and a couple of play mice.  They were happy – more so for the basket and grass at first – snorts.  Silly purr things.

Dad loves his Angry Birds games so this year mom tried to decorate the eggs in their colors.  Didn’t turn out as good as last year but dad absolutely loved them.  Me, of course I favored the piggy one.  What more I favored was what was inside of the egg. Snorts – I do love my food.

And me?  You asked what did the Easter Bunny bring me?  ALL kinds of goodies.

I got a yearly pot full of my special treats! I noticed last week that my big bucket was MIA (missing in action) here at the Hotel Thompson.  That Easter Bunny is sneaky.  He must have come in last week and took my bucket to fill up with all of these goodies.

Look in that bucket –

  • Animal crackers – yes the convenient size – snort.
  • Yellow squash and eggplant.   I love it chopped up and raw.
  • Carrots – look at the size of those master pieces!
  • Oranges and apples.
  • And my training raisins were in the bottom of the bucket.  I only get raisins when mom is teaching me new tricks.  I guess she’s up to training again.

YUMMY – this pig struck the gold mine!   I think personally the Easter Bunny likes me the best, don’t you?  But I won’t tell anyone if you don’t.

And we can’t forget about  rock clan. The Easter Bunny brought the rock clan what else but Rock Candy!

Everyone is having a blast on this special day.  I hope you and yours also have a spectacular Easter my friends!

Bacon and friends at the Hotel Thompson 🙂

Bashful is HOME!

 

Guess who came home from visiting my brother Phenny in France?!  That would be Bashful, my pet rock.  Squeals!  Some of the stories he told – oh my piggy heavens.  He had such a blast visiting Phenny – and getting in trouble and spending some time on his time out rug – snorts with piggy laughter.  He arrived Thursday night here at the Hotel Thompson with some wonderful gifts that kept him company on his way home.

And of course, he brought home a friend!  Meet Brittany who is a little bit of rock and roll – all the way from France.  Let me tell you friends, she has a voice on her and has been singing non-stop.  I need to be careful with this one.  The next thing I’ll know is she will be starting her own Rock Group here at the Hotel Thompson with some pebble back up singers.

So everyone – let’s welcome Brittany to the blogs and my growing rock collection.  ❤

And huge THANK YOU for Phenny and his staff for hosting my little tyke Bashful.  Thanks so much brother!!

Happy Birthday Bashful!!

 

 OMP (oh my pig!)  Can you believe that it’s been FOUR years since Bashful came to live with me here at the Hotel Thompson?  This is him all snuggled in transport the first time that I saw him – aaww.  Wasn’t he all cute and innocent in his straw bed? 

And to think of all of the places he  has been in the world?  He’s going to need extra pages in his passport book soon ❤

So, today, let’s all wish our little international rolling stone a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

And He Is Off Again!

img_4586

The other night, mom/dad took Bashful out for some Mexican food.  They like to call that his “Going Away” Party.  He gobbled down his two hard shelled beef taco’s and then flirted with all of the staff talking about his adventures.  The places my rock has been!  The restaurant even told hi Bon Voyage to his next trip.  Heck, I wished we had signed Bashful up for Skymiles.  Just think of the miles we could have accumulated over the years.

But at last, mom took him to the ‘airport’ this morning and sent him off on his next adventure.  Where will he land?  What will he do?  What will he eat?  Where will he roll?  And the most important question – Who will he be visiting?

Travels in the South

Hello sweet friends to the first Travels in the South for 2017!  Today I want to show you something that comes from the kitchen of the Hotel Thompson.  You are going to love this!

When my pet rock was visiting Miss Harper Lee and Tallulah Bee in New Orleans, Louisiana, Bashful got hooked on a specialty there named Red Beans and Rice.  If you look here, you will find the recipe and pictures from that trip.

Well when Bashful came home, there were some of those amazing Camellia beans in his package.  So you know mom had to try them.  So this past Monday, mom put on a huge pot just like Miss Harper Lee’s mom does on Mondays.

When it was ready to serve, mom whipped up some rice and of course her homemade cornbread to go with dinner.  And let me tell you, it is an awesome recipe.  Dad had two bowls!  Does that tell you anything?

So friends – there you go.  A dish from mom’s kitchen!  Thanks Miss Harper for the recipe and wonderful beans.  This just might be our weekly dinner on Monday’s now.  ❤
