Okay all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson are writing this to mom as an open apology for our misbehavior this morning. We apologize and will try very hard not to let it happen again. Really. We will. So let us explain our behavior my friends.
First up. Mom is not a morning person. Not at all. We are talking zombie before coffee – no coffee no talkie. Well this morning, rolls piggy eyes and looks innocent, someone set the alarm to zero five hundred dark in the woods time to get up… something about trying to be the first to check in with cousin Sammy’s Tuesday Teaser. (And no I wasn’t first – darn it and shuffles hooves). Well after I checked in, I went back to sleep in the big bed – see me here in the picture. Mom was not amused. She got up, went to the bathroom, mumbled about who in their right mind would change the alarm clock and then went back to bed for a few minutes. Unfortunately that’s when she fell asleep and that’s bad. Bad because today is a worky day and she has to go that worky place. And the alarm clock already went off. This is not good.
A couple of hours later, mom wakes up because Hemi is rolling around on her side. That’s when she notices that it is awfully lit inside of the room. She sits up and oh.my.gosh.it’s.a.run.for.your.money because it’s almost 8:00AM. What the cream cheese? What happened? I know – I know – “someone set the alarm to zero five hundred dark in the woods time to get up”.
She jumps out of bed, tells daddy she’s running late and starts the marathon. But of course we are all standing there looking at her like, “Hey, remember us?” You know that pitiful look of we have never eaten before and are starving – snorts. And did you know there is a reason why we anipals get up in shifts in the morning for feeding. You see, I need to eat first. It’s just the way it is. Once you satisfy my rumbling belly with my piggy chow and Cheerio’s, I’ll go back to sleep. Then there is Houdini that gets fed. If you don’t feed him by himself and watch, the purr things try to eat his food. And then lastly, it’s the purr things. We all like the purr things food – snorts. Try feeding us all at one time – snorts with piggy laughter. Let’s just say that it didn’t go too well and mom still had not had any coffee.
And then there was the incident with the front room carpet mat near the entrance. Someone was caught gnawing on it like it was a puppy treat – not mentioning any names little guy. There’s now a hole in it and mommy might have blown a gasket because of that…. or maybe it was because I butted my head through the baby gate into the kitchen and ate some of the purr things food?… or maybe it was the purr thing Hemi chasing Houdini around the house knocking over the water dish? I’m not really sure what exactly it was that threw mommy over the edge this morning but I think she sure was glad to go to the worky place this morning. Sorry mom.

Yep, you guessed it from yesterday April’s Fool’s Day blog posting. The Hotel Thompson is now under construction. Day 2 and I’m ready to move in with any of you for the duration. Anyone at all. I don’t require much… really I don’t.
You see, this entire renovation has snowballed into what dad’s calls a cluster. You don’t understand cluster? Let me explain it to you the way mom explained it to him. Go ahead and get settled in – I’ll wait. Are you ready?
Okay mom and dad were discussing buying new furniture this year. Apparently what they have now came over with Noah on the ark. Rolls piggy eyes. It really didn’t but that’s how mom explained it. Dad said fine. We will get new furniture this year. And he was fine with that because even *he* said we needed new stuff. This is where it snowballed, went down a hill, around a curve and became a cluster.
Then mom said:
“Well, if we are going to get rid of our current furniture, why don’t we go ahead and get rid of the china cabinet, hutch and kitchen table that I hate so much as well. And since all of that will be gone and the rooms would basically be empty, why don’t we go ahead and look at that new floor we wanted for the front room because you know this carpet is shot. And hey, if we are going to do new flooring in the front room, why don’t we look at the kitchen and hallway too – that way it can all match and flow. And oh my goodness – if the room is empty, we can paint a couple of walls to give it some color in here. And then you know what honey, we can shop for the new furniture and accessories.”
I saw daddy writing something down the entire time he was listening to mom. He called me over and gave me this piece of paper. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. But he’s a good man… I think. He ended up saying the worse words ever invented for a man to say to a woman…. “Whatever you want honey.” He then handed over the check book. My friends, I really feel sorry for my dad.
Oh, and did I tell you the best part my friends. Mom wants ALL of this done by April 17th, 2015. Squeals and rolls – yeah okay. Don’t worry, I’ll be taking pictures of before, during and after to share. Right now, I would describe it as his/hers and ours in the making. Wish me luck!

Happy April Fool’s Day my friends. What? That’s not how it’s suppose to go? Oh, I get it. I’m suppose to “fool” you into something that you are not aware of. Oh I see – that’s how it works. Well, since I’ve already blown that part let me go in another direction. That would be fun, right? Nods piggy head – sure it will be.
I will tell you three things. ONE of them is true. YOU guess which one. How’s that for an April Fool’s Day? These may be tough so work it out my friends.
Statement 1 –
Since mommy loves the Mickey Mouse so much, dad thought he would meet her half way. He loves the rock group KISS.
So, daddy compromised and got this rocking Mickey Mouse/KISS tattoo this past weekend. Cool huh?
It looks tough. It looks cool. Mommy loves it. Daddy loves it. It’s a win-win situation. Don’t you think it’s groovy?
Statement 2 –
Oh dear piggy heavens help me – please help me! Mom and dad are doing a complete renovation here at the Hotel Thompson. Work started today and should be completed by Friday, April 17, 2015.
We are talking gut work – front room, kitchen and hallway. Out with all of the old – furniture, carpet and yucky linoleum in the kitchen. Painted walls, new floors and new furniture – perhaps some other really cool stuff.
All by Friday, April 17, 2015. Can I come live with you?
Statement 3 –
Our next door neighbor is getting a piggy – squeals – I’m going to have a girlfriend for real! They’ve talked about it for a while now.
I’m so excited. I can’t wait for you any longer Miss Piggy. 😦
There you go my friends. Three statements – which one is the truth? Go!

There’s just so much in my little life that I don’t want to miss. I just don’t have time to sleep. I might miss something. What am I to do? Signed Sleepy Pooch
Dear Sleepy Pooch,
Oh little fellow. You have to sleep. You’re not going to miss anything. You need to sleep to grow as big as you can. Everything will still be there waiting for you to explore the next day. Happy dreams my little friend.
Do you ever just have one of those mornings when you just can’t get out of bed. I really tried this morning. It didn’t work out so much for me. I just fell over backwards and went back to sleep. Signed Backward Pup
Dear Backward Pup,
AAWW – you’re just too cute there my friend. I really don’t have those kinds of mornings. My pot belly won’t allow it. It has needs and when it is time for food, I’m up and eating. Now afterwards, oh yeah. My bed calls me to come back to take a little nap. Sleep on my friend.
Sometimes you just have to curl up wherever you are and call it nap time. It doesn’t matter where. You feel like this? Signed Treecat
Well, if you fit you must sit and sleep. I’ve been known to crash on the front room floor once or twice. Sometimes the Sandman just hits you and you have to go down.
I didn’t fall down. There’s no way I would do that. The floor actually came up and hit me. After that, I just had to take a nap. It just happened. What can I say? Signed Carpet Cat
Dear Carpet Cat,
Hey, whatever you say. You don’t have to make excuses if you want to take a nap in the middle of the day on the carpet wherever you are – snorts.
Really, it’s not what you think. I’m working on an experiment. If I ‘look’ like I’m sleeping, maybe the birds will come. When the birds come, I have hopefully a two piece for lunch. What do you think? Signed Smart Kitty
Dear Smart Kitty,
Personally to me, you look like you sleeping. Why eat that little Woodstock or Tweety Bird. Let them be and stick to your kitty chow. I bet you will enjoy it more anyway.
Remember my friends, keep sending your pictures and questions to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com
Thanks and have a great day!
