Bacon’s Show and Tell

Bacon’s Show and Tell

This month we are sharing embarrassing stories from Thanksgiving or other family dinners.  I’m sure that we have a lot of material to pick from with the Thanksgiving holiday just taking place.

I’m letting mom take this one from a story from way back in the day – take it away mom!


Many, many years ago we attended a family Thanksgiving get together.  There was snack food, drinks and then the main meal to be served several hours later when everyone arrived.   Me and the hub unit arrived and socialized with family members we had not seen in years.  This was way back in the day during the times that the hub actually had vision.  We got separated at one time and met up at the snack table.  With drink in hand, I was headed to this fabulous looking shrimp platter.  That’s when the hub unit grabbed my hand and guided me away to a quiet corner.  Now I’m thinking, “That’s what I’m talking about, let’s get a little kissy-kissy.”  Boy, was I wrong.

He went in for what I thought was a kiss but instead of a peck, he whispered in my ear.  Might I say there was not enough adult beverage that night to help me from practically rolling around on the floor laughing.  He told me that one of the children (and yes he named names) had been camping out at the shrimp platter.  This child was told not to touch anything.. so he didn’t of course with his hands.  He proceeded to lick all of the shrimp on one side of the platter.  No wonder the platter was still full.  About the same time that Jim told me this, the host saw what was happening.  But the child was right.  He didn’t ‘touch’ the shrimp – laughs.  And Jim did tell the host – all of this happened within minutes but seemed to have been frozen in time.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Mark your calendars my friend.  Bacon’s Show and Tell for January is scheduled for Friday, February 26th, 2016.

This month – the job was for us anipals in finding an embarrassing picture of our humans.  Oh my friends – I think I found the topper of all embarrassing pictures – one of my daddy.

And let’s just say that I could not have planned this one even if I tried.  O.M.P.  When I saw it, I couldn’t believe it.  I snorted so loud and said, “Pig, this is the ONE”.

You see, mom/dad went to a family restroom at our local Sam’s Warehouse.  Of course, the call of nature hit both of my humans at the same time.  Mom got the grown up facility while dad was forced to use the little one… and I do mean little one.

 Now you do realize with the showing of this picture, that I may have to go into hiding or back to camp.  Then again, maybe we should all just chuckle to ourselves and not tell daddy of his embarrassing call of nature – snorts with piggy laughter.

Happy day my friends – can’t wait to see what you found on your humans 🙂 ❤

Journey to Israel – Part III

Welcome my friends with our Journey to Israel series.  If you have missed the previous two editions please see them at Part I and Part II.  This is a wonderful trip that my Aunt took around the Christmas holidays.  She was willing to share her adventure with everyone here in blogville.  Today she will focus on some sights that she was able to check out.  Here you go – hope you enjoy 🙂


Isn’t this just beautiful!?

You think of Israel and it really doesn’t come to mind the beauty of palm trees.  I thought of flat lands, mountain areas, a lot of churches and history.  But we so much more there.  The weather was perfect for our adventures.  It almost felt like spring/fall – coolness in the air and not hot at all.  We visited at a perfect time because in the summer months temperatures can exceed 109 degrees – way to hot for adventures.

This beautiful picture of palm trees was taken near Masada which is in the southern district of Israel.  

On this date, we went through the Masada National Park.  There was a small fee to access and explore the park – which I highly recommend you visit.  There are actually two paths that you can take for your explorations –

  • The Snake Trail leaves from the eastern (Dead Sea) side at the Masada Museum and gains 980 feet in elevation. It is thought that hiking this path is considered part of the “Masada experience”.
  • The Roman Ramp trail is also very steep, but has less elevation gain, and is accessed from the western side of the mountain by car.

 Here is another picture to the left of some of the paths at Masada.  Can you see the beauty – the mountains, the sky and all of the old rocks?

It’s not an easy path to walk and plan on taking lots of breaks to enjoy the scenery.  And just to let you know – the path that we walked was equivalent to walking 91 flights of stairs – so says the Apple Health App.  Can you believe that?!

Also – have fresh batteries in your camera.  You don’t want to miss anything and you definitely want to be able to look at these awesome pictures after your return home from your adventure.

I leave you this week with another picture from the Snake Trail path and of course a food pic – no blog would be complete without some type of food porn.  I hope you enjoyed today.  Join me next week for another edition of Journey to Israel.

Dear Bacon – Tongue Edition – Snorts

Dear Bacon – Help!  Let alone I had to get a bath.  Let alone they wrapped me up like a tight burrito so much so that my tongue hung out.  Then the human had to take my picture.  Really?  I can’t even fight it I’m wrapped so tight.  Any thoughts on how to handle this fiasco?  Signed Burrito in Training

Dear Burrito in Training – Let’s look at this on a positive note.  Your humans love you so much that they (1) bathed you; (2) wrapped you up to dry you so you wouldn’t get sick in this awful cold weather and then (3) took a pic of you.  Sounds to me like they are working hard towards next years Christmas cards.  You can never plan too far in advance my friend.  So this is what you do.  Wait for them to go to sleep – you know the snoring, tongue hanging out and drooling from the mouth.  Then take their picture to replace yours.  Simple as that.  Snorts.


Dear Bacon – I’m not sure about you but us dogs, we can spell.  We know exactly what you are spelling when you say V.E.T.  I’m not the kind of dog that runs but you spell V.E.T. and I’m gone like the speed of light.  Nobody likes those guys at the V.E.T. office – I don’t care how many treats you get.  What say you Bacon?  Signed G.O.N.E.

Dear G.O.N.E. – I concur.  Nobody likes the peeps at the vet’s office.  No way!  I mean my goodness they think giving you a treat makes up for the violation they give to your captain’s quarters – I don’t think so.  I mean heck, at least you can buy me a Mint Julep or something first – snorts with piggy laughter.


      Dear Bacon – This should serve the human for leaving their camera phone on last night.  I left them a little something to find on their camera roll.  What do you think – do I have it or what?  Signed Hot for Hollywood

Dear Hot for Hollywood – Oh absolutely my friend.  How could anyone resist that cute little face and tongue?  I wish I could be a fly on the wall when your human finds that picture on their camera phone.  I bet they laugh and then oohh and aaaww for hours!


Dear Bacon – I don’t get it.  I live in the south and every time someone new sees me, they say, “Bless his little heart.”  I don’t get it.  What does that exactly mean.  You live in the south – do you get that often?  Signed This is My Happy Face

Dear This is My Happy Face – You see here in the south, that is a term of endearment.  Peeps often say that for no apparent reason.  I’ve heard peeps tell this to babies, older peeps, anipals and to each other.  I don’t think they mean anything by it.  Nope not at all.  How could they?  I look at you and see a masculine little guy that is going somewhere in the world.  You just accept that term as a compliment, hold your head up high and march right on into 2016!


Dear Bacon – I was asleep – you know taking one of many naps during the day.  I had my little hoodie on for some added heat.  My human woke me up and said, “Say Cheese?”  All my tummy heard was cheese so I stuck my tongue out.  Don’t you know that was the moment my mom decided to snap my pic.  Why – tell me why – do these humans do this?  Signed Sticking Tongue Out

Dear Sticking Tongue Out – Personally I think sometimes the humans try to catch us off guard in an attempt to get an amusing look from us for their cameras.  Every once in a while, I let mom *think* she has me and I do something for her amusement.  What can I say?  It keeps the humans happy therefore we get more treats.  I say play it for all its worth my friend.  Work it!


Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to email me your letters and pictures ❤

31 Days of Spook – The Mummy

Oh Boo my friend.  This afternoon I have another real story for you about a mummy.  I heard about this story early last year and couldn’t believe it.  Since then, we have even her it mentioned on television.  Enjoy my friends – I’m here to hold your hand or paw if you need me 🙂


In 1976, a camera crew was filming a television show inside of a haunted house in Long Beach, California.  When they were setting up, they moved a mummy prop to the side.  When they did this, one of the arms fell off.  When the arm fell off, they noticed that it was actually real human bones.  After the authorities were called in, they learned that the body was the criminal Elmer McCurdy who was killed during a shoot out following a train robbery.

After he was shot, a funeral director embalmed his body and put it on display since he was so proud of his work.  Eventually a pair of carnival promoters claiming to be McCurdy’s brothers took the corpse for themselves.  McCurdy’s corpse popped up in many haunted houses across America before winding up in Long Beach, California.
