Happy Mothers Day Moms!!

Today is a wonderful and glorious day – Mother’s Day.  I appreciate my birth mother, Bertha, and I love her very much.  If it wasn’t for her and my dad Champ, I wouldn’t be here, right?  Snorts.  So I’m very thankful for my mother – Happy Mother’s Day mommy Bertha.

 I’m also very thankful for my adopted mother.  Mommy Bertha gave me life but my adopted mom gave me a home full of love.

I’m also very thankful for my nana.  If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have my adopted mommy.  See how these things work?

I am so excited to share this date with you my friends and wish you all a wonderful Mother’s Day filled with love and snuggable hugs.

Trivia Knowledge – did you know that the first Mother’s Day was May 10, 1908 in Philadelphia.  That’s good trivia knowledge that I learned from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel.

So from me, Hemi, Mouse Girl, the ‘rock’ clan (Bashful, Manny, Rockelle, Princess Coralena, Benedict Cumberock, Virginia) and Journalist Rocky the Squirrel –

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY – WE LOVE YOU!!

Happy Father’s Day Daddy!

Today, June 16th, is just a special day – it’s Father’s Day!!  I have to say happy Father’s Day to my biological father, Champ.   If it wasn’t for him and my mom, Bertha, I wouldn’t be here with my adopted family at the Hotel Thompson.  So Happy Father’s Day Champ! 

 

And then, my adopted dad.  What can I say?  He adopted me when I was a small tyke – I could barely walk!  I knew nothing about life at a mere three weeks.  I was still on formula and had to be taught everything.  Do you know to this day, dad takes care of me during the day?  While mom is at the worky place, dad makes sure that I get all of my nutritional food and that I’m happy until mom gets home.  Isn’t that great?  I guess you could call him my pigdad.

So, for today dad don’t worry about anything.  Me, the purr things and mom will handle it at the Hotel Thompson.  Heck, mom even said something about fixing your favorite food… and that I might get a taste.  Hey – it’s a win win situation today!

Enough of the seriousness though.  Let’s talk Bacon – oink chuckles.  Just for today dad, you can sit back on the sofa, enjoy your television and have the remote.  You don’t have to utter one word… especially the phrases I’ve heard you say around here.  Oh, you look shocked.  Let me remind you of some of the phrases – PLOL (Pig Laughing Out Loud).  How many have you heard from your fathers?

Just because I love you doesn’t mean I have to like everything you do.

Because I’m the Dad, that’s why!

I brought you into this world, and I can take you out! 

I’m a Dad, I know everything.

The sooner you learn to stand on your own two feet, the better off you’ll be. – which never makes sense to me since I have four feet – shakes piggy head

That’s just the way life is, son.

You make a better door than a window!

Were you born In a Barn?  well, yes I was

Do you think money grows on trees?  technically, it does 🙂

I haven’t developed gray hairs for nothing!

You are too young to understand this.  

And my favorite all time one liner from dad –

Go ask your mother….. perfect… I will 🙂

Can I Make You Smile?

A lot of people think that pigs can’t be cute or precious. I, on the other hand, think the complete opposite. Personally, I think we can be extraordinarily cute. You’re probably shaking your head and thinking to yourself, “Yeah, right.” Well here’s a challenge for you – give me just a few minutes to see if I can change your point of view. 🙂

Look at this picture of me when I was probably around 5 weeks old. Mom was being funny and wanted a picture of Bacon and Eggs. Silly woman – me being bacon in the purest form and eggs. I admit it. This picture *almost* became our Christmas card my first year at the Hotel Thompson. It was fun posing with these eggs. The best part was afterwards, mom fried them up for me for lunch. MMMM – that was delicious! Did it make you smile a bit? No? Okay, let’s try again.

I’m a pig. I’m very smart and very curious about everything. I watch what you do, where you get things and catch on quickly. In fact, mom thought it was funny that I learned very quickly where the food was kept in the kitchen. Immediately, I will go to that big box that keeps all of the wonderful delights in the house. If only a had thumbs and not hooves. I would be in that box so quickly! She thought my antics were funny therefore she got me my first t-shirt that stated, “I didn’t do it.” Did this one give you a tiny little smile? No? Okay, you’re playing hard ball. Let’s try again.

How about the old saying, “What happens at nana’s house, stays at nana’s house”. Nana babysat me for a week and made me a playpigpen. Even at a young age, I learned how to escape it – snort. I would pick the bottom up with my powerful snout and there you go – call me PiggyHoudini! I had fun that week with nana. She liked to feed me… something about fattening up the hog. I wasn’t sure what that meant. When mom and dad came back from vacation, they said I was so fat that I couldn’t squeak! Any smile? Any snort? No? Okay – let’s go old school with mom and dad pictures.

Mom and dad adopted me when I was a mere 3 weeks old. Before them, there was my birth mom and dad here in these pictures. The black/white piggy to the left is my father Champ and the pink piggy to my right is my mother Bertha. See, that’s where I get all of my cuteness all rolled up into me – 100% loveable Bacon. That has to make you smile a bit… a tiny bit? No? WOW – you are hard.

How about seeing this picture of me at three weeks when I weighed only one pound. The Pepsi can was as big as me. I was snuggable, just like now. I was cute, just like now. I was nothing but hooves and snout – so loveable, just like now. Do you have a small smile, a tear in your eye? Okay.

This is it, my last possible picture to get you with a little grin. This is me taken from my web cam on my laptop when I write my blog. Yep, I write it so you get it straight from the pigs lips. I told you I was special and smart.

So you have to tell me, did I get you to smile – even a little bit – with my thoughts and pictures? Did I change your mind that us pigs are loveable, snuggable little things?
