Dear Bacon – Who says that humans get to have all of the fun? Us anipals can appreciate a good movie too. For instance, one of the best movies ever made – can you guess it? Star Wars of course! I mean come on piggy – don’t you love it? The lights, the action, the fights, marrying Hans Solo – what is there not to like?! What do you think about the movie? And what is your favorite movie. You can tell me. Signed Princess Leia Kitty
Dear Princess Leia Kitty – Well I can see my friend from your outfit that you really, REALLY like to get into your character and enjoy your movies. I’m piggy enough to admit that I’ve never watched any of the Star Wars movies. Now before you hiss too loudly, remember I’m only 4.5. My dad hasn’t introduced me yet. But I can guarantee you that after I read him your letter, he will. Lucky me.
My favorite movie? Of course Charlotte’s Web. What’s not to like? Snorts and oinks!
Dear Bacon – I know you have a pesky cat at the Hotel Thompson. I have one here too. Shaking my head. Why are cats so evil? They say their misunderstood. Barks – as if. They have the humans completed snowed – completely! Us anipals know the truth. You see, our humans were at work. The pesky fur ball got onto the coffee table, looked at me and started to push the bowl of flowers towards the end of the table. I was like NO! – but of course why listen to me – I’m just the dog as he puts it. As he knocked the bowl off the table, I couldn’t help it with my expression and of course the turd took my picture. Guess who got blamed for it? Yep, moi. Because we all know the cute little kitty would never do such a thing. Help me my friend. Signed OMD!
Dear OMD! – That pesky no good for nothing flea bag! Yes I understand your situation completely. Hemi here thinks he is the master and does things very similar. Like smacking me hard on the fanny when no one is looking and when I try to take a nip at him squealing to the high heavens. Heck, I wasn’t going to eat him – I was cleaning him… yeah that’s the story. So you see, I know your pain. I think perhaps your little friend should have some payback. Call me – I’m sure we can come up with something like honey or peanut butter accidentally of course being left out for him to be covered in… or maybe a swift bath in the toilet. What? I would never hurt kitty – nope not at all 🙂
Dear Bacon – We have this cool thing in our hood called doggy daycare. It is like the total bomb in the summer! The bus comes to our house, picks us up and takes us on field trips and play dates and the doggy facility. OMD! I so highly recommend this. We go twice a week and this is our picture from the bus – it’s so cool. This was our “we aren’t doing anything-sweet-and-innocent” looks on the way home. Dude, you gotta check it out and see if they have one in your hood. Signed Summer Fun
Dear Summer Fun – Oh my piggy heavens! That sounds like so much fun for sure! You get out, your humans get a break and you make lots of friends and see things all over. Oh my gosh! I’m so green with jealous. I gotta check this out. Thanks my friends for letting me know of this awesome experience. I wanna go on field trips too!
Dear Bacon – We were set up! We found several notes in the woods saying there was going to be a party here at the house and that cover charge was a buck. We came but we were set up – there was no party! The room was dark and no one was at home. What a joke! We were hoping for a great time and a full keg. Should we stand here until someone comes home? Signed Buck Party
Dear Buck Party – OMP! The cover charge was a buck? Shaking my piggy head. Oh my friends – you were definitely set up on this one. I’m so sorry but in a way you have to admit it was kind of funny. Should you stand there until the family comes back? Probably not. I wouldn’t want to see what they have in store for you if you do. I say chalk this one up to experience and keep tracking the woods to see if the familiar smell of the person that set you comes back.
Take care my friends.
Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to email me your letters and pictures.

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?

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?
