Watch out turkeys – it’s that time of the year. You could be the one this man is looking for to invite for Thanksgiving dinner… in a bad way. It’s time to play hide and seek. PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

Caution – Turkeys
Daddy You Are So Funny!
Snorts! So the other night mom/dad went out to dinner. When they came home, I got mom’s iPhone and went through the pictures. Why do you ask? Because she always has such neat pictures on there and this time she *knew* I was looking so I wasn’t doing something I wasn’t suppose to be doing. So I found this picture below of daddy. I just looked at mommy like okay and…So she explained the picture. And my friends – believe me it’s hilarious.
So mom and dad went to this place local place called Chick-Fil-A. It’s a great little place that has wonderful family values and great chicken by the way says mommy. Well they got done eating and went to check out. Daddy said he was going to go ahead and go out front and wait on mommy. Now, remember that daddy has very limited vision – he can see maybe tops 20% and it is no way in this world clear at all. You see him wearing glasses in a lot of the pictures but that’s mainly to protect his eyes from anything that might get in his face.
So mommy was like, “Are you sure you can get out front by yourself?” Daddy was determined that he could do this so he said yes and went outside.
A few minutes later, mommy came outside to see daddy sitting like above. Daddy was ‘talking’ to the guy on the bench with him. Mom couldn’t help but laugh. You see the bench/statue are new. It is the founder of Chick-Fil-A, Truett Cathy. The restaurant has recently put this in front of the restaurant in honor of Mr. Cathy who he passed away last September.
Of course after taking the picture – snorts, mom walked over to daddy and said, “What are you doing?” Daddy replied, “Talking to this guy.” Mommy said for kicks and giggles, “Was it a good conversation?” Daddy replied, “No, he was kind of quiet.” Okay by this time mom was rolling. Mommy finally couldn’t take it anymore and said, “Honey, it was a statue.” Daddy didn’t miss a beat and said, “No wonder he was slow talker.”
Now you have to know mom/dad. They are jokers by heart and no way mean harm in any of this. They both thought it was good plain fun – accidents happen. Trust me. There’s lots of things that happen here at the Hotel Thompson. Daddy would much rather laugh about them then sit and cry feeling pity about himself.
It Made the Paper!
On January 1, 2015, I shared with all of you my friends about the story my mom wrote on living with disabilities. You can read about it here if you missed it. It was really something that comes close to our hearts here at the Hotel Thompson. We deal with problems every day that have now become second nature to us. Well, the article got published in one of our local newspapers here – The Clayton News Daily. Squeals to the high heavens! You can click on here to be taken to the news article.
So much fun! We were all so excited for mommy here at the Hotel Thompson. If you haven’t read it, please do my friends! Have a great day!!
