Do a Grouch a Favor Day

February 16th is Do a Grouch a Favor Day.  Do it today and make the world a better place!

Everyone has been a grouch at some point in their lives.  Some people are occasionally grouchy while others maintain that grouchy attitude all of the time.  You know who they are.  Sometimes people get grouchy because they are tired, had a bad day and the weather outside is bad.  It doesn’t take much sometimes to put people in a grouchy mood.

Today your goal is to look around for someone that is in a grouchy mood.  Do them a favor that will cheer them up.  Hug them.  Lick them.  Be nice to them.  Bring them the paper.  Buy them a coffee or a doughnut.  You know – do something nice for them to see if you can see a smile on their face.  You can do it.  I know you can!

February 8th is Boy Scout Day that celebrates the birthday of Scouting in America. On February 8, 1910, Chicago publisher William Dickson Boyce filed incorporation papers in the District of Columbia to create the Boy Scouts of America.

Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts offer a tremendous valuable program of life skills and values for millions of boys. It has been popular since Lord Baden-Powell founded the Boy Scouts in the early 1900′s in Great Britain. The top award of Eagle Scout is an accomplishment that reaps recognition, rewards and benefits for a young man throughout his life.

Really Mom?

 Mom is so funny – really she is.  She was out shopping – which is dangerous in itself – snorts.  Well on one of her unfortunate shopping adventures, she picked up this coffee cup as a joke to me.  Really mom?  You are full of jokes these days.  Someone needs to get you out of bed on time for work… or to do your errands… or to work out.  Let’s think positive okay.  Snorts with piggy laughter.

Can you believe my mom bought this so called coffee cup?  It’s so hard to find appreciation in the things us anipals do for our humans.

I hope your day is full of love, family and hugs.  And let’s not forget food.  All kinds of food!  I found another funny for today.  I hope it makes you chuckle just a bit.

I also wanted to take this minute to express what I’m thankful for.  I’m thankful for my friends here in blogville.  I’m thankful for my family.  I’m thankful for a roof over my head and a soft bed to sleep in at night.  I’m thankful for the food provided for me every day.  I’m thankful for the love all the way.

I’m thankful for the purr thing Hemi (but don’t tell him cause it will go straight to his head.  I’m thankful for the little guy Houdini.  I’m thankful for Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and all of the pet rock gang.

I’m thankful for the shoulders I have to lean on and the laps I have to snuggle on.   I’m thankful to my birth mother who gave me to my adopted mother.

And when I count my blessings, I count all of you twice!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friends.  Love you bunches and bunches!

XOXO – Bacon

Defy Superstition Day

 

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

 .

Today, September 13th, is Defy Superstition Day!  Exactly what does that mean, right?  Well, you know all of those superstitions you’ve heard about all of your life like the following:

13 is an unlucky number; walking under a ladder; opening an umbrella inside of the house; black cats crossing your path; unlucky to put a hat on a bed

All of these are just that – superstitions.  Today, is your opportunity to break those beliefs.  Don’t worry about these superstitions – live life today at your fullest with no thoughts or worries that something bad might happen… especially if that black cat crosses your path.  Today – there are no superstitions.

Special Bedding

Hello sweet friends.  I have to share something with you that has made mommy squeal with delight.  And we all know that if mommy is happy, we are *all* happy.  Am I right?   Well mom is hot.  Okay well dad says that all of the time – rolls piggy eyes.  But I’m talking about another kind of hot – like the temperature outside.  H.O.T.  It doesn’t help that it’s in the middle of the Summer and outside there are temps – Hot and H.O.T.T.E.R than hell here in the south.

Mom has been doing a lot of research on bedding for her/dad’s king size bed.  She came across two things that she said had to help her out at night when trying to sleep in this heat.  The first was Dri-Tec sheets.  Now these sheets are like those shirts that guys wear when they are working out – the ones that pull the moisture from their body.  These sheets are like that.  So you can sleep and not worry about feeling ‘wet’ from being overly hot.  I mean heck if it works for those moisture wicking shirts, why not bedding right?  I mean the air conditioning is on here but mom is going through that change – wink wink – if you know what I mean.  Okay I don’t know what I mean.  I just keep hearing mom say that to daddy.  If you know, let me know okay.

Then mom found a special pillow that she had to have.  This pillow has cool/heat touch technology.  I know you are asking yourself what the heck does that mean – cool/heat tough technology.  I’m glad you asked because I had to ask daddy too.  Supposedly in theory, the memory foam in this pillow is such that you don’t have to keep turning your pillow over and over in the middle of the night AND the pillow actually stays cool to the touch – not cold but cool.

So mom tells daddy to fork over the credit card because desperate times call for desperate measures.  Since mommy is going through the ‘change’ thing, daddy was smart and said go for it.  Mom went to the store and bought these two items.  Immediately when she came home, she remade the bed and was all giddy about going to bed early that night.  Now, I don’t get it.  You just changed sheets and added a pillow and this made mom smile a mile long with excitement.  Women.

So do they work?  It’s been almost three weeks now since mom over indulged and bought these sheets and her special pillow.  Instead of asking mom does it work, I asked dad.  Because I knew dad would give me an unbiased opinion.  Dad said the sheets feel awesome on your body.  They are smooth and silky but not like silk sheets where you slide off to the other side of the bed.  These like comfort you and hold you.  And as far as mom’s special pillow.  Daddy laughed at my question.  He said that mom’s head touches her pillow and within minutes she is out like a light in the deepest sleep that he can remember.  Dad’s conclusion is that the sheets and pillow were expensive but making mom happy while sleeping is priceless.


Please note:  we at the Hotel Thompson were not compensated in any way for our opinion on these products.

Dear Bacon

 Dear Bacon – Thank goodness for Pokemon GO!  While everyone is out looking for Pokemon, me and my bros are practicing our battle Corgi skills on an empty beach.  Talk about fun in the sun.  No one to watch us work our magic.  Corgi’s will rule one day !  We might even let you in on our team since your’e a cool pig.  Signed Corgi’s Unite!

Dear Corgi’s Unite – Oh my piggy heavens!  Look at ya’ll with your swords and everything.  Dudes, ya’ll have skills.  I just know I could fit in.  I have a powerful snout.  Trust me on that.  I put my head down and snout out and CHARGE!  Keep practicing and keep me posted okay.

 


 Dear Bacon – Hey.  You definitely need to join us for a drink the next time you are in our area.  We know this bar where everyone knows your pet and human name.  The tab is endless – they just bill our charges to the human folks when they come in – good deal, huh?  So the next time you are our way, stop in for a bowl of milk or popcorn or a pint… of ice cream that is.  Signed, Coon, Pug and Mutt

Dear Coon, Pug and Mutt – Now you are talking my language.  A anipal friendly bar where they know our names and don’t bill us but our humans.  I am so in on this fun ride.  Save me a pint please cause I’m off to map you on my Waze app.

 

 


Dear Bacon – You do realize that by the human dressing me up in this garb, taking my picture and then laughing like a jackass, there will be punishment repaid.  How embarrassing huh?  The human is even talking about me wearing this ridiculous outfit for Halloween in a couple of months.  Please make this stop.  What can I do?  Signed Oscar (and yes that’s my name – rolls kitty eyes)

Dear cough-cough Oscar – Dude, you have to admit the brilliance of your outfit.  I know – I know.  But look at you.  You are rocking the Oscar the Grinch outfit and it is priceless in the second picture.  I think you would definitely be a blast at Halloween in that costume.  But just say for pay back, maybe you can leave a fur ball on your humans favorite chair or on their pillow.  I think that would be plenty sufficient cause trust me.  In the end, you are the STAR!


 Dear Bacon – I don’t get it.  These Air Jordans are suppose to make you be able to jump and fly and dunk.  I can’t do any of these things still.  I say this is false advertisement.  I should sue that human.  What do you think?  Signed Skippy

Dear Skippy – Snorts my friend.  First off, I think in order to “jump and fly” you would actually need some on your back feet as well.  And then running with a little thrust, you might just be able to fly.  And hey, it might help if you lace them up.  I’m just saying.  You don’t want to be mid-air and lose your shoe.  But until then, maybe you should watch this movie called, “White Men Can’t Jump”.  You know just for research purposes.  You might be able to make some money on the side if you take careful notes.  Let me know okay and I can be your manager one day.


 Dear Bacon – I win again this year!  This is me in my championship picture of hide and go seek.  Awesome huh?  Every year in my county, they have a contest with anipals hiding in their environment.  I won again!  That’s two years back to back.  So, you got any wonderful hide and seek pictures?  Signed Winner

Dear Winner – OMP – I had to take a double look there to find you my friend.  You do blend – very well!  I say conpigulations on your win.  And it’s never too early to start working on next year’s winning picture.  I just know you can make it three years in a roll!  You go!

 

 

 


REMEMBER FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please keep emailing me your pictures and letters.

Pigomon NO!

So here I am this past weekend listening to the news on television about this Pokemon Go craze.  I’m just shaking my head about some of the stupid things that people are ending up doing just to catch a Pokemon.  I don’t get it.  I really don’t.  I overheard mom/dad talking about the craze and they were just shaking their heads too.

So knowing that mom/dad thought it was crazy, I acted like any other kid in America.  I had to try it myself – snorts.  So mom put me to bed last night.  While she and dad were getting ready for bed, I downloaded the Pokemon Go app to my iPad.  Now this is where I have my first issue with Pokemon.  Why don’t you have animal players?  Why do you have to have either boy or girl.  Shame on you.

I finally settled with a boy and of course named myself BaconPigLove.  What else would I name myself, right?  So then I listened at my door intently waiting for mom/dad to go to bed.  In the meantime, I looked around my room.  Nope – Pokemon Monster Free just like I like it.  I snorted – stupid game.

Then I heard mom/dad walk down the hall – awesome.  Now was the time for me to make my move.  I silently pushed open my bedroom door and went down the hall holding my iPad.  Now I was so intent on getting to the doggy door that I didn’t see the stupid monster before I got right on top of him.  This stupid Rattata appeared out of nowhere.  And trust me friends, it’s just like it sounds – a stupid rat of some sorts that’s been eating too many science projects left in the fridge for too long. I didn’t know whether to squeal or take a snort or what.  So I flung this ball at it and it said I captured it.  Thank goodness because that thing could have carried Houdini off.  And speaking of which, I was trying to be quiet so I wouldn’t wake him up so he would yip-yap and give me away.

I got to the doggy door and scooted through… okay okay – I wedged my pudgy piggy butt through the door.  And then there I was in my magical backyard.  Surely, nothing would be found in my magical backyard.  I started walking around holding my iPad up looking for these supposed monsters.  Then I saw this thing happened on my iPad like something was jumping in a bunch of leaves. It was weird so of course I carried on towards it.  Slowly I tiptoed on my hooves and then this stupid bird like thing jumped out at me.  I think it said it’s name was Pidgey.  Trust me.  That’s not what I called it.  I caught it with my ball and scored some points.

By this time, I was deep in the woods.  Did I mention all by myself?  Then I saw the leaves moving again on my iPad.  This time it was further back in the woods near the tree line.  So again I tiptoed down the woods silent like the hunter I am – quit laughing.  I turned the corner and jumped out to get what only God knows was next.  That’s when this kid yelled louder than I was squealing.  OMP!  I peed on myself right there in *my* backyard… in *MY* woods and this kid was back there hunter Pokemon too. He yelled pig and I yelled kid and we both took off running in opposite directions.  Trust me it was so much easier getting back into the house through the doggy door.

I’m never going Pokemon hunting again…ever.
