Travels in the South

What week would be complete without a birthday cake picture?  Mom/dad went to a local italian restaurant last week for mom’s birthday.  This is a piece of wonderful cake mom got at the end of her meal.  It’s called the Black Tie Mousse Cake.  It has rich layers of chocolate cake, chocolate cheesecake and a creamy melt in your mouth mousse.  Did mom enjoy it.  YES.  It was just enjoy to enjoy and share with daddy.

Paw Time with Houdini

Did you celebrate the 4th of July this week?  This week has been one continual pawty here at the Hotel Thompson.  Every year during the 4th of July, it’s *always* a pawty.  Not just for the 4th but there’s also another important howliday in there.  On the 3rd, it was mom’s barkday.  We had a blast!  There was cake, ice cream, presents, dinners and bunches of shopping and fun.  Mom/dad and Nana even went and saw the new Jurassic World movie.  They had such a great time playing together.  And they didn’t forget us anipals either.  We had doggy ice cream to celebrate the week.

Did ya’ll have a great time this week too?

Independence Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel – Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

Today is July 4th – the birthday of our nation. On this day, we celebrate and enjoy the freedom that comes with the event that made this day so special.  Do you know how this date originated?  Here’s a little background information for you:

 Thomas Jefferson was the author of the Declaration of Independence and led a committee that crafted the declaration between June 11-28, 1776. Jefferson and other representatives from the thirteen colonies voted and approved it on July 4, 1776. The document declared freedom for the 13 colonies from British rule. Thus, July 4th is known as Independence Day in the United States. The actual Declaration of Independence is in the Exhibition Hall of the National Archive in Washington, D.C.

And here’s a little bit of trivia knowledge to WOW some of your friends.  The Declaration of Independence didn’t actually get all of the signatures by the representatives until August 1776.  The President of the Continental Congress, John Hancock, had to sign it to make it official.  Have you ever heard of the saying, “Put your John Hancock on it?”  Now, you know where the saying originated from.

Today we enjoy this day by celebrating our freedom.  It’s a time for some good old fashioned baseball, hot dogs and family picnics.  Throw in some parades and fireworks and it becomes a holiday with a bang!

Happy Birthday, America!

Happy Birthday Hemi

20130624-194724.jpg

This post goes out to my brother Hemingway – Hemi for short. He is a lot of things here at the Hotel Thompson.

He is my brother.

He is my friend.

He is the master cat.

He is mom/dads oldest.

I talk about him a lot here on my blog. Mostly about him using his ginormous paw to slap me on the rump – snorts. But really, today is his birthday. Today he turns the big 14 years young. Happy birthday Hemi.

And just remember Hemi, with your age – snorts –

you might want to cut back on spanking this oinker.

Just sayin’

Cuddle Up Day and Another Special Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

Today, January 6th, is a special day.  For one thing, it’s Cuddle Up Day.  Doesn’t that just sound wonderful?  It’s cold outside, make a fire and cuddle up for some snuggles.  And, you don’t have to cuddle with someone to appreciate this day.  Cuddle up in your favorite chair in front of that fireplace, pop in a movie, relax and enjoy your time.  Bring out one of your favorite stuffed animals – I’ve seen Bacon’s mom do that.  And hey, speaking of Bacon – cuddle up to your favorite pet.  I know Bacon will get his share of cuddles today.. as well as Houdini… as well as Hemi… as well as Mouse Girl 🙂

AND…

Today is also another special day. Today is also the big guy’s birthday here at the Hotel Thompson.  It’s dad’s birthday.  Now, he won’t tell us how old he is but I think he was around during the dinosaur era.  Why?  Because I hear Bacon’s mom calling him T-Rex at times.  Shakes squirrel head – so that has to be true, right?

So at this time, all of us here at the Hotel Thompson would like to wish the big guy a very wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  You do so much for us from giving us nuts to cleaning our litter boxes out to even cooking for us from time to time.  You are definitely the icing on our cake… and speaking of cake – enjoy – we love you big guy!
