I really thought I was going to have to put a call out for someone to build a boat yesterday. It rained like there was no tomorrow. All of us was getting cabin fever of being inside and on top of each other. Today though, it’s beautiful. The back yard was freshly cut and mom decided we needed to spend some quality time together outside so we did.
I had to walk around and investigate my kingdom – smelling the grass and sneezing. And I can tell you it’s the truth. The camera does put weight on you. There’s no way my pot belly is that big. No way at all. But don’t worry. I did get some exercise in the yard… and so did mom. I made her chase me around because I wasn’t ready to come in when she was. Of course, I thought twice when she said – and I say quote, “Fine then, let Mr. Bigfoot get you.”. I ran past her and inside of the house so fast after that, she almost fell – snorts.
Snorts and oinks friends to a happy and wonderful Friday! I think my buddy Maxwell says it best in this video clip – bring on the weekend!
So today on this fine Friday, I wanted to ask you an important question. You see mom and dad were discussing their favorite shows on television last night and it got me to thinking. Why don’t I ask all of you my friends so that maybe we can highlight a show that someone else might want to watch. Makes sense huh?
So I’m going to start with our three favorite shows to watch here at the Hotel Thompson (in no particular order).
Mountain Monsters – Now this is a show that we didn’t watch right off when it came on the Destination American channel. But one night mom did and she has been hooked every since. The AIMS team (which stands for Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings) goes all over looking for monsters in the woods. AIMS was founded by team members Trapper John Tice, Jeff Headlee and Willy McQuillian. There is also Buck, Wild Bill and Huckleberry. Awesome names huh? They have done shows on everything from the Jersey Devil to the mysterious Bigfoot.
Investigative Discovery – Or as you may know and recognize it – the I.D. Channel. Anything that is related to murder is on the channel. And my mom – she considers herself an inspector in trying to figure out the show endings before the television tells you. It’s really interesting to see how people think they can “get away” with murder. Never a dull moment and trust me, you won’t be able to just watch ‘one’ show and leave. Oh no, you will be hooked!
Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Brothers and Dead Files – Okay I hooked all of these up in one posting because they all deal with the paranormal, the afterlife, the what bumps in the middle of the night and keeps you on your toes kind of television shows. Mom and dad both love this stuff and yeah I have to admit that it’s grown on me. I’m not as afraid of things in the middle of the night anymore. Houdini though – he’s another story.
So tell me my friends, what are your favorite shows?
At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the back yard. It’s a good thing for privacy. There’s also a small creek that runs behind the property line. That’s a bad thing for the long slithery things that come out of it wanting to venture into our back yard – shivers. But, there’s other animal life back there. I’ve seen it all from my window in my bedroom.
There’s squirrels that hang out playing tree games jumping around and secretly taking our pictures for their photo albums. Sometimes they come up on the deck asking to borrow a cup of nuts. Personally, I think that Journalist Rocky the Squirrel sends over his family to sponge off of mom and dad. I’m just sayin’ – snort.
There’s also a family of rabbits that play in the woods and come into the back yard. They are fast. Last year, they were all babies and this year they have now grown up into beautiful adults.
Mom throws out bread and seed for them to eat. And, they love the clover in the back yard. There’s lots of that for their little buffet meals.
And let’s talk about frogs. Oh thud – the frogs are so loud at night! You can hear them from the creek croaking at night. It kind of calms you down a bit and it’s memorizing.
Other times you just want to hang out the back door and yell, “I’m fixing frog legs tonight, any takers?” Just piggy joking. We wouldn’t do that – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).
And then, the other night we saw something that was unique and interesting. Mom, the ever ready camera gal, took a picture. Of course it came out blurry. I mean, come on it wouldn’t be a sighting if it wasn’t blurry, right – snort? There it was walking slowly through the back yard. It looked directly at her. I was in my room watching and it scared me so bad. What was it you ask. Are you ready for this? It’s unbelievable!
PIGGY DOWN! I was in shock. It had all of the signs of the legendary Bigfoot. Camera picture blurry, tall, hairy – it was BIGFOOT.
Then, I took another look. It had a slight resemblance to someone that I recognized. Shucks, all that fuss – my bad. It was just my dad walking through the back yard. Darn it – I was that close to being famous. Oh well, close though. I’ll keep looking. 🙂
So mom was in the kitchen messing around the other day. Something caught her attention in my magical backyard. She went over to the window and then started oohing and aahhing like a crazy woman. She went and grabbed her camera because she said she had to take pictures.
Of what me and dad kept asking her. She kept telling us, “I’ll tell you in a minute. This is so cool!” We kept at her though – what is so cool. Please share your discovery. It is *my* magical backyard and nothing and no one should be in it… except for maybe Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and perhaps my Bigfoot – but that’s stories for another day – snorts.
Finally I put down my hoof and
demanded begged for an answer – who or what was in my backyard. That’s when she said two words – Cow Kitty. What?! Cow Kitty from Canada? You know Cow Kitty that visits my friends Shoko and Kali from Canadian Cats.
How in the world could Cow Kitty get all the way down here in Georgia? Was there a mysterious space travel? Did Cow Kitty come via a space ship? Oh my – look at the resemblance to Cow Kitty. What do you think – how did Cow Kitty get here in MY magical backyard? So weird. I’m off to ponder this for a bit and think about space travel now.
I recently saw this question posted on Facebook and could not resist sharing it here with you my friends. You are kidnapped and the characters from the last television show are mounting a rescue. Who are they?
Me – snorts – that would be the folks from Gilligan’s Island – you know the Skipper, Gilligan, the Professor, Mr and Mrs. Howell, Ginger and Mary Ann. What does that mean. It means I’m never getting rescued – snorts with piggy laughter.
Mom/Dad – This is hilarious. Mom/dad watch this show at night when they go to bed called Mountain Monsters. They love that show! You’ve got the guys – Trapper, Jeff, Willy, Wild Bill, Buck and Huckleberry. They are from the West Virginia area and track down mysterious sightings of weird creatures and of course Bigfoot. Their team is called AIMS (Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings). This is going on their 3rd season. If anything, mom/dad’s rescue would be a hoot full of excitement and adventure. Below I found a picture off the internet on the Destination America website. Look at these guys – don’t you want to be rescued by them too?
