Book Lovers Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Hello dear friends.  Today is the official Book Lovers Day.  Don’t you just love a great book.  Something that takes you away from the every day ordinary life that you have.  Something romantic – something exciting – something spy or a great mystery.  Anything that you can read to put you in another life or another space in time.  Reading can be for fun, educational, relaxing or research.  Reading can make us laugh, smile or even cry.

Today, I encourage you to find that interesting book – of any topic that intrigues you.  Open the book and start your journey anywhere – in the house, on your bed, in the grass, on a hammock.  Go away, even for a couple of hours, to a place that you don’t need a passport to travel.

I myself will be researching some recipes.  There are a couple of chickens and roosters that don’t know what time it is in our hood.  I’m researching ways to help them – even chitter chatter.  No really, just researching some interesting recipes.  Now my friends, go find your book!

Price Placement

So daddy lied.  He decided to venture out with mom to take a break from wrapping and they went down the street to a store.  It wasn’t busy which was awesome.  Daddy of course was looking around with mommy.  That’s when mom found this package and started laughing uncontrollably inside of the store.  In fact, mom was laughing so hard that she couldn’t breathe.  Daddy didn’t know whether to call a doctor or an exorcist for mommy.  That’s when she finally got a hold of herself and described to daddy about this video.  Remember stores – it’s all about price placement and where NOT to put the sticker.  OMP – Now I have the giggles – rolls with piggy laughter.

Price Placement

Sometimes when daddy goes shopping he finds the most amazing things.  Sometimes – and I’m just saying sometimes – especially during this time of the year placing the price tag is very important and can change everything.  Just as in this case.  Bet you never think of the show on television or this book again the same way – snorts with piggy laughter.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Welcome my friends to today’s Bacon’s Show and Tell.  This month we are highlighting something that is the oldest in your house.  As you know, we have been doing a LOT of renovating here at the Hotel Thompson.  Mom has an antique trunk that came from her mother’s mother – old huh?  Well, mom explored inside of the trunk and found something older than daddy!  Can you believe that?

Here is a newspaper from the Bangor Daily News dated Wednesday, January 2, 1963.  Can you believe that?  If you look close in the upper right hand corner you will even see the cost of the newspaper during this time – EIGHT CENTS!  You might be asking yourself WHY would you have such a paper from such long ago?  My Nana’s family is actually from Bangor, Maine.  Small world huh?

And I told you this newspaper was older than my dad.  It is by 4 days – snorts.  My dad was born on Sunday, January 6, 1963.  What a small world huh?

Bacon’s Show and Tell – REMINDER

Today is going to be a twist to our normal Bacon’s Show and Tell.  This month we are going to highlight something that is the oldest in your house.  It could be a person – snorts watch out daddy of mine.  It could be a special dish that you use only on special occasions.  It could be a picture frame of a loved one.  It could be a dress.  Anything.  What is the oldest thing you have in your house?  Take a picture and share it with a story on April 30th, 2015.  Can’t wait to see what you find my friends.  Have fun!
