Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 11

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different.  We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest.  So if you miss a day, you can catch up.  Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


The weird box is making noises.  None of us anipals will go anywhere close to it.  Mom/dad brought it back with them yesterday and took it to their bedroom.  And they weren’t gone as long as what we thought they would be.  Something really weird is going on here at the Hotel Thompson.  There’s lot of whispers.  Lot’s of secrets between mom/dad for some reason.  We don’t get it.  Help us our friends to figure this out.  This could be the spookiest Halloween month ever.

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 8

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Okay not funny.  Whoever is doing this, needs stop now.

The rain started again last night around midnight.  That’s right.  Straight from the hells of hot Summer and let’s jump into the rainy nights of winter.  Fall where are you?  Mother Nature – what drugs are you taking?

We were all in the living room together.  Finally the electricity had come back on and we were watching Jeff Dunham on the comedy channel.  How could one possibly be scared of a man talking to himself with his hand up a dummies butt?  Right?

And then all of our phones went off that we received text messages – all at the same time anonymous of course – with this lovely picture.  We all looked at the basement door like yeah right and ran to my bedroom.  That’s where camped out the rest of the night.  This staying by ourselves is crap.  Yep I said it.  Crap!  And Hemi was with us and his fur was standing up on edge.  It can’t be him, can it?

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 7

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

A creaky door?  You know that kind that you hear sometimes in a scary movie – gulps.  The long eerie squeak that you just know something is going to happen.  Where did it come from?  I oinked.  Houdini came into the living room.  Good, he heard it too.  We both jump on the sofa together.  Where is that noise coming from and where the heck is that flea bag of a evil purr thing that lives here?

It has to be that stupid purr thing making that noise.  No Houdini, it doesn’t sound like the opening of the lid of a coffin.  Where do you come up with these things? It’s Hemi.

There it goes again…. sreecchh.  We both looked at the same time.  It’s at the front door.  Whatever it is, we can hear it now clawing to get in at the front door through the storm door.  Gulps.  We both tunneled under the blanket peaking out at one end.  How is Hemi doing this?

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 6.5

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


The rain continues.  With a full moon.  One of these days Mother Nature, you are going to want something from us.  Nana called to check on us – left a lovely message on the voice mail.  We are just fine.  Mom/Dad fed us this morning and we are big kids now.  But the storm – the storm needs to stop.

The lightning is loud too.  It rumbles the Hotel Thompson.  About an hour ago, the electricity started flickering on/off.  And it got really dark outside.  Oh sure – go ahead kick us while we are down.  Do you know how hard it is for three anipals not to get into trouble with nothing to do in the house?  Nothing to keep us occupied by the sounds of thunder and occasional patches of light from the lightning.  And you know what else happens in the dark?

You hear every.single.noise.

Hemi is suppose to be the elite one light on his feet.  Hogwash!  Seriously, that cat sounds like a freaking elephant walking up and down the hallway.  And every little floorboard that can creaked, has creaked this afternoon.  I mean like weird creak.  Even the frogs aren’t singing outside tonight.  Even Houdini was in the kitchen a while ago but with the lightning it looked like his shadow was ten feet tall!  It about gave me a heart attack!  And believe me, it scared Hemi too.  He jumped in the air and twisted around flying back down to the bedroom.  He won’t admit it.  But he was scared – I’m sure it took one of his nine lives.  And hey I’m pig enough to admit it – it scared me.  I almost tinkled on myself.

What was that noise?  It sounded like a squeak… like a door of some sort.  Gulps.  What the cream cheese?

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 4

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


Meows – This being left alone for the entire weekend could be a blast!  Bacon and Houdini can have their spaces.  I want the big bed in mom/dad’s room.  That is like the happening place here in the Hotel Thompson.  I can watch my Investigative Discovery television channel and bring on all of my kibbles in there.  Nana can wait on my paws when she comes to feed us.  I may even purr at her once/twice just so she thinks I care… even though I don’t – evil purrs.  It’s what I do.  Wait a minute, I just got a text with a video.  Who would be sending me a video?  The number says unknown.  That’s weird.

Shivers to meow mercy!  Who in the heck would send me something like this?!  It has to be that pig.  Yep, nods head.  It has to be Bacon trying to get my fur to stand up.  It just has to be him wanting to see me get frightened.  As if.  This cat doesn’t do scared.  I’ll show that pig.  I’m not going to say a word.

Dear Bacon

20130531-235655.jpgDear Bacon,
You’ve caught us.  This is what we do when the humans aren’t looking.  ssshh – kind of keep it to yourself okay.  You’re welcomed to join us anytime – just bring your lightsaber.  Signed Squirrel Wars

Dear Squirrel Wars,

Hey – I’m in!  This looks like fun.  Party in the back of the Hotel Thompson this weekend.  I’ll call Journalist Rocky the Squirrel to get the invites out.  Thanks my friends!


20130531-235711.jpgDear Bacon,
Part of fitting in is the disguise.  I’ve been hanging out on the pier now for two whole days and no one has noticed me.  I think it’s the hat – maybe the fishing rod.  So I now know the answer to life’s greatest problem – blend in with the humans.  What do you think?  You want me to get you a rod and hat to come out with me?  Signed BirdGilligan

Dear BirdGilligan,

WOW!  I’m glad you told me who you were, I would have never guessed it!  You do blend in so well.  I’m wondering if I wore that outfit would humans ever think it was me?  How about I try to meet you soon and we can test that theory?  But first of all, I have to ask.  Can you lift 45 pounds?  Because if the humans catch on, you gotta get me out of there before they start looking at you as a two piece and me as bar-be-que.  Shivers.


20130531-235720.jpg
Dear Bacon,
I’m in the police academy trying out for a police officer.  I think I have the gun stance down.  You think?  Why don’t you come join me?  I’ve heard it runs in your family and perhaps someone in the family can put in a good word for us?  Signed Stop or I’ll Shoot

Dear Stop or I’ll Shoot,

That is a good stance.  I’m impressed.  I don’t think that I’m ‘police officer’ material in that way though.  My hooves – well they just get in the way when I try to hold some heat.  I’m more of a Pig9… you know something like a K9 but with me, an oinker.  With this snout, I think I can be trained to smell out all of the bad things out there.  But hey, what if we were partners?  You the bad cop and me the good cop – raises eyebrows.  That would work partner!


20130531-235738.jpgDear Bacon,
HELP!  There’s something on my noise and I can’t see it.  It tickles.  Hurry, what is it?  Is it dangerous?!  Signed Crossed Eyes

Dear Crossed Eyes,

Snort giggles.  Never fear my purr friend.  It’s just a lady bug.  They are good luck.  I think she likes you.  Maybe be nice to her and make a new friend.  There’s nothing to harm you little guy.

20130531-235801.jpg

Dear Bacon,

I think me and my friend are twins!  We both have some of the same characteristics – you know like being devious and mischievous – purr laugh.  I think it’s the constant smile that pulls the humans into our lives.  There’s only one small, tiny, little difference.  My friend can reshape his body to frighten peeps.  I can almost do that… not the way he does but I’m learning.  Signed Cheshire in Training

Dear Cheshire in Training,

WOW – I almost couldn’t tell the difference between you two.  That smile – it’s almost identical my friend.  Perhaps you can play his stunt double in real life?  That’s always an idea.  Just think of the fame and fortune you would have.  Carry on my friend and keep smiling.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,
They say that we can all stand on our heads. I don’t know. I think I may be vertically challenged or maybe my head is not flat enough. I just can’t seem to be able to do it all the way with my back legs straight up. It throws me off balance. Can you do it? Signed Not Happening

Dear Not Happening,
Never dear friend. Sometimes we are just not built to do these weird things that you see the humans partake. I can’t stand on my head. This pot belly of mine knocks me off center every time. And my mom, even though she’s human, she can’t do it either. Don’t try to be like everyone else. Make your own path and be happy – leave the sitting to your bottom.


20130618-013110.jpg
Dear Bacon,
There’s always that one idiot that has to pop in your picture. Can you relate? I was minding my own business in this shot. I just wanted it to look halfway decent to post on my Pet Harmony dating profile. Signed Available

Dear Available,
Yep. I know exactly what you are talking about. Hemi, the purr thing here at the Hotel Thompson, thinks he should be in every camera shot. He is always photo bombing my pictures. Just keep smiling. Pay back can really be tortuous for our sidekicks. Right? Maybe sign up your friend as well on Pet Harmony and post his picture – of course with your picture cropped out. Snort giggles.


20130618-013135.jpg
Dear Bacon,
It’s a wonderful thing to have such great friends. Out in the pasture, sometimes I just get tuckered out. That’s my good buddy will help me out and let me take a nap. Isn’t that nice of him? Signed Sleepy on the Road

Dear Sleepy on the Road,
That is an excellent friend. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen that kind of friendship before. You are most definitely one lucky little guy!


20130618-013152.jpg
Dear Bacon,
I coach a soccer team on the weekends. We are always looking for a few new team players. You ever think about playing? I’ve heard that snout of yours can be classified as a deadly weapon.

We could use a player like you. What do you say? Signed Coach Jones of Team Anipals

Dear Coach Jones of Team Anipals,

That sounds like a great deal of fun. I’m In to give it a shot. This snout is very wicked and these hooves are very fast!!


20130618-013210.jpg

Dear Bacon,
I think I need some anti wrinkle cream. Every time I wake up, I have more wrinkles! Soon, you’ll just see one giant sloppy dog. What can a pooch do? Please help. Signed Wrinkles

Dear Wrinkles,
As Lady Gaga once said, “Just put your paws up, Cause you were born this way, baby”. Embrace the way you are and don’t try to fight it my friend. Be happy in your own wrinkles.
