Oh friends – welcome back to my Bacon’s Tales of Terrors for this month. This month I’m taking another true story one that you might have heard out of the headlines. We here at the Hotel Thompson were in awe hearing and seeing it on the news last month and then we found out more information that was just simply astonishing. So, are you ready for it my friends?
During the mid-part of March last month, Lynn Groesbeck was traveling in her vehicle with her 18 month old baby, Lily. For some reason, the car went off the road into the freezing river in Spanish Fork, Utah. The two were trapped in the car for over 14 hours.
A fisherman happen to see the vehicle and called authorities. When four rescue workers came to the car, they all said they heard a woman yelling for help – a mature older voice. This voice was so pleading that the workers got into the frigid waters and were able to work harder and flip the car over. The vehicle had been partially submerged in the freezing water and workers were shocked to see the mother had passed away and had been deceased for hours but the baby was still alive and in her car seat.
Was it adrenaline that helped the workers push the vehicle over? Was it the pleading voice of Help that gave the four workers the adrenaline they needed to get the car upright? Was it the deceased mother that was still looking over her precious baby? Where did the voice come from that all four heard? And let me add that the water was so cold that some of the workers had to be treated for hypothermia. How did the baby survive the cold for 14 hours?
Baby Lily is recovering in the hospital and family say that she is going to be just fine. What do you think of this true story? Did it give you goosebumps like it did us here at the Hotel Thompson?

You talk about having your own room. All 8 of us have to share a room and this is our kitty bunk beds. It gets kind of crowded and you really can’t stretch out… let alone snuggling up to any kind of a blanket or pillow. We even heard that the kitties at the Hotel Thompson sleep in a ‘real’ bed. Is that true?? Signed Eight is Enough
Dear Eight is Enough,
WOW – that is a tall kitty bunk bed there. I would think that stretching out on the floor would be more freedom than confined to that little compartment. Is it first come, first served or is everyone assigned their ‘bed’? Make the best out of it my little purr things! Enjoy the moments in life where you can. P.S. Yes the purr things here get to sleep with mom and dad on their select comfort bed. Rotten aren’t they? … like I don’t know nothing about being rotten… snort.
I hear the “V” word… you know “vet”. I tried to hide but the master found me like this. What do you think I should do next time? Signed Hide N Seek
Dear Hide N Seek,
Well first of all, next time hide under something that you can actually ‘hide’ underneath. Just because you can’t see your master doesn’t mean your master can’t see you. Follow me? But hey on the other hand, that is really a cute picture of your captain quarters – snort – LOL.
Sometimes the best things in life are when we sit back, relax and reflect on life. You know, don’t sweat the small stuff. I have a favorite rock that I like to sun myself on and reflect. It helps me to keep stress free and ponder my life in general. Signed Pondering Ribbit
Dear Pondering Ribbit,
WOW – Well you do look relaxed my green friend. I tried meditation in my bedroom. I just couldn’t get my mind to quit focusing on running and eating though. Perhaps I will try again. Stay green my friend.
I’m the sheriff here in these parts. Bark Bark – you think I fit the part? I may be small but I’m a force to be reckoned with! Signed Walking Small with a Big Bark
Dear Walking Small with a Big Bark,
I think you can possibly get away with it – you are just too cute with that hat on!! And those big brown eyes, yeah, I would let you arrest me. Snort. P.S. I’ve seen some political people on the television. I think you have a shot just like everyone else! Be firm but be fair – that should be your motto.
My master is always telling me, “Safety first”. Every time we go on a road trip, she straps me in. Other dogs don’t get strapped in. Signed Wanna be Free
Dear Wanna be Free,
If all of the other barky things jumped off a cliff, would you? If they all got taken to the doggy jail…AKA pound… would you want to go too? Your human cares for you with all of their heart and doesn’t want anything to happen to you. I say go with it little man. Enjoy the extra treatment.
