Dear Bacon – Just the facts little guy. Nothing but the facts. We’ve been watching too many repeats of the movies Men in Black. Don’t ask me which is which. We just like to dress like Kay and Jay. You know, just for fun and giggles. The neighborhood doesn’t know how to act when we roll into it – bark. What do you think? Do you like to dress up like any of your favorite guys? Signed Kay/Jay
Dear Kay and Jay – Oh dudes – I love the look! That is so neat. I’ve seen those movies and ya’ll kind of look just like the two. I think it’s the ties and sunglasses. I would love to roam around in my costume too. I secretly want to be a piggy super hero. I keep asking mom to make me a cape. I know with a cape, this little piggy would have special powers and be able to fly. Stay cool barky things!
Dear Bacon – This little pup couldn’t take it and fell asleep. When I woke up, there was the hunny jar near me and I was passed out. I don’t know what happened and I don’t know why it’s so funny. The humans keep laughing. Can you explain? Signed Pup Dog
Dear Pup Dog – Snorts – it is kind of funny little man. Your humans are really playing with you. It’s cute. You need to ask the humans to read you the story of Winnie the Pooh. You look like Pooh. He liked his hunny. No, that’s wrong. He LOVED his hunny. Hey, I would keep the costume for Halloween. You’ll get lots of candy!
Dear Bacon – It doesn’t matter what kind of cat you are, we love boxes. It’s that simple. We will get in them and play with them. I just wanted to let you know. Signed Kitty Box
Dear Kitty Box – I’m not hating you on that. I know the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson love to play with their boxes all of the time. Mom/dad area always asking them why buy little purr thing presents when you can just give them the box. Shrugs shoulders. It’s a kitty thing. I completely understand. I tried to do the box thing too. I didn’t get it. I destroyed the box in less than five minutes. Now that’s my fun time! Enjoy the box my friend!
Dear Bacon – I know the purr things like their boxes buy I prefer daddy’s guitar case. While he plays, I crawl in there and the music puts me to sleep. It’s actually more comfortable than it looks. Does your human have a guitar case for you to try this? Signed Squishy
Dear Squishy – You do look most uncomfortable. I think I’m going to let you call this one and let you crawl in. Dad does have a couple of cases but looking at this body, there is no way I will fit in there. I don’t care how much I try. Sleep on my friend!
Dear Bacon – With summer comes doggy camp. I thought I would snap this picture of all of us on the bus headed to camp for the week. It’s a ball! We get to do lots of neat things and have fun. There really isn’t any time to miss the humans. Do you get to go to camp? Signed Campdoggers
Dear Campdoggers – That looks like so much fun! As far as I get to camp is when I go to nana’s for a couple of days. She always fattens me up so I can’t oink. 🙂 It’s fun and you know what they say. What happens at nana’s, stays at nana’s! Have fun at camp!
Dear Bacon – I need some help. My master continues to dress me in this silly outfit. I’m not a big fan. When I wear it and we go out on the town, everyone is really sociable though.
They always say, “Hello Kitty”. They’re really nice about it. I on the other hand just can’t stand the outfit and I don’t get it. What can I do? Signed – Purr in Distress
Dear Purr in Distress – You don’t get it do you… Hello Kitty? Do you ever surf the net? Do you ever google Hello Kitty?
You know what – go for it. Wear it with pride. You look really darling and I caught myself saying, “Hheelloo Kkiittyy.”
Dear Bacon – See, I have talent too. I love to ride my bicycle around our little village. People see me rolling – they know I’m hip. So it’s got training wheels – you gotta start somewhere and I love this thing.
You ever thought about riding a bicycle little pig? Signed – Hip to the Hop
Dear Hip to the Hop – Have you looked at me lately? My legs are a little challenged. My front legs are shorter than my back legs.
My tushy is made for comfort not speed. I’m not into exercise unless it involves putting food into my mouth. But, hey more to you dude. Ride it with pride!
Dear Bacon – Every morning we get up and look at the window. It’s our time to sit and reflect with each other. Here lately, this stupid bird gets right in the window and puts his tail feathers in our faces. What is up with that?! What is this birds gone wild or something. We are minding our own business and this chick has to do this? What can we do? Signed – Purr Things of Reflection
Dear Purr Things of Reflection – You have to admit that’s kind of funny. You know, I’m not saying ya’ll do, but a lot of purr things chase after birds. Maybe this bird is “pigeonholing” ya’ll into one little category. Thank you – I thought that was funny too. Maybe try a different window in the house. Maybe try ignoring the bird. Reflect on my purr things and be the better kitty!
Dear Bacon – Every morning my adopted father comes out of the shower naked. I can’t help to look like this every time I see him. I mean, why would you shower naked? I don’t take my fur off, do you? Will this shocked look ever stop? Signed – My Face May Freeze
Dear My Face May Freeze – Hang in there little man. Humans do weird things like that. My mother likes to sit in the water full of bubbles in the dark with candles. Now that is strange to me! Seeing your parent without clothes is natural to them. Be tough little guy. It’ll become second nature to you soon.
This post goes out to my brother Hemingway – Hemi for short. He is a lot of things here at the Hotel Thompson.
He is my brother.
He is my friend.
He is the master cat.
He is mom/dads oldest.
I talk about him a lot here on my blog. Mostly about him using his ginormous paw to slap me on the rump – snorts. But really, today is his birthday. Today he turns the big 14 years young. Happy birthday Hemi.
And just remember Hemi, with your age – snorts –
you might want to cut back on spanking this oinker.
PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud!)
Dear Bacon – People come and see me at the zoo all of the time. They take my picture and always say, “Smile”. Well my friend, this is my happy face and I am actually smiling. In fact in this picture that someone took of me, I am meditating. I’m concentrating on thinking perhaps I am taking their pictures and they are posing. What do you think? Signed Happy Monkey
Dear Happy Monkey – I think you are thinking along the right path. I tell you what. I’m going to send you a camera so that you can do just that. Take humans pictures when they try taking your picture. Can you imagine the look on their face when you tell them to smile? Snorts!.
Dear Bacon – Dude, what’s up? I’m like feeling the nature man. I’m rocking with the inspiration of Marley and others. You know, keeping it real and much love to all. Peace Bro. Signed Bob
Dear Bob – WOW! I feel the love all over my friend. You keep rocking it and sharing it with everyone. How could anyone not be happy with you? You have to be the most even mannered pooch I’ve ever met – and the best dressed one to boot. Peace, Love and Rock n Roll to you. Keep it real and love to all.
Dear Bacon – I have to admit that my ears usually are down but on this date I saw something so totally scary that those ears shot straight up and haven’t went back down yet. I saw my humans naked… butt naked… without any clothes. Oh my eyes! Signed Pete
Dear Pete – I’m so sorry my friend. I know it’s hard to get over that. What has been seen can not be unseen now. It does get better though. After a while, it seems second nature and it doesn’t scare you as much. I should know. Daddy lives in naked world when mom is not here. Rolls piggy eyes. He says he cleans better. Now that is a thought you can’t get out of your mind isn’t it? Snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – I’m here to answer the ever lasting question – how do you make panda bears. Well, as you can see from the picture you know have the answer – 🙂 You are so welcome. Signed Pan Family
Dear Tongue – Oh my piggy heavens. I have always wondered about that my friends and I’m sure others have as well. Ya’ll are awesome to let us know the secret. What a beautiful family you have there!
Dear Bacon – Listen the water is fine my four legged pot bellied piggy. Why don’t you come for a swim with me. I’ll even teach you how to swim under the water. I’m sure you will catch on fast. What do you think? Signed Mr. Friendly
Dear Mr. Friendly – Not that I don’t appreciate your well… friendness but I think I’ll pass. For some reason, I think it’s better for this little oinker to stay on dry land, far away from the water and far, far away from your swimming lessons. Call it a premonition if you will.
But, carry on my friend and thank you… really.
Dear Bacon – The nerve of our family vet. Can you believe that (A) they had the nerve to come near my captains quarters with that proby thing and (B) they told my humans that *I* needed to go on a DIET?! What in the world was he thinking? Don’t my humans pay for his sound advice? What kind of crap advice is this? I think the look on my face tells you everything I think. Signed Tiny
Dear Tiny – Oh dear. That proby thing is awful. It must be a torture device from centuries long ago. Yep, that’s what I think. And that look on your face. Oh my. You are certainly not happy. And well… looks down at my pot belly. I am one NOT to give any advice to you on that four lettered dirty word – D.I.E.T. Shakes head – nope.
Not the one to do that at all my friend.
Dear Bacon – I see you – purr snicker. I have my eyes on your activities good or bad. I’m reporting back to that Evil Elf of yours Don Juan. You just wait. You’re going to get it when he comes out in November. Signed The Watcher
Dear The Watcher – Really?! It’s not bad enough that I have rogue elf that watches my every move, you’re going to as well? Rolls piggy eyes and walks away. This is so not fair in this oinker’s life. Can’t we all just get along? Snorts
Dear Unhappy Pooch – WOW my friend. That is some look you have there facing your tomb of doom. It’s just not right. And to put you in this time out right in the middle of the living room where you can hear and see all of the fun activities going on around you. Shakes piggy head and clicks tongue. Nope, just not right. I’m sorry pal. Maybe when you come out of serving your time, you just ignore those humans. Show them who is getting timeout there. Don’t give them any affection.
None whatsoever… can you last like what five seconds? Hang in there my bud!
Dear Bacon – I double kitty dare you to try this maneuver. Heck, I triple meow dare you. I dare you to put your back legs up over your head. In fact if you can do this position, I will personally come over every day and give you a piggy massage – heck I’ll even clean up your room for you. Signed Fear Factor Feline
Dear Fear Factor Feline – Really?! That’s okay my furry friend. That’s what I have my mommy for – massages and cleaning – snorts. Let’s hope that cannon of yours doesn’t go off while you are bent legs over head.
Dear Bacon – Summer really stinks. It’s totally hot and uncomfortable. All I can do is stand in front of the fan and let the breeze overtake me. I just have to do something to cool me down. Signed Flappy
Dear Flappy – Hey pal, whatever you need to do to keep you cool I say go for it! Momma is a firm believer in her fan in this hot summer. Can’t we just skip over that season? I’m all for it. Let’s start a petition. What do you think?
Dear Bacon – Hubba hubba little man. I find you so fascinating. I can’t believe a pig like you is still single. What do you say we fix that problem? Signed I Do
Do Don’t – Not that I’m totally not appreciative or anything but I’m just not ready to settle down like that. You’re totally beautiful and I think you will find the perfect pig one day. Don’t give up my friend.
Dear Bacon – You talk about Houdini at the Hotel Thompson a lot of different times. I just want you to know that I think I’m more spoiled than he is. My humans actually dresses me too. It’s a pain in the rump area but hey it makes them laugh. You ever think about dressing up? Signed Prissy
Dear Prissy – First off – you look adorable in your little outfit. Your face doesn’t *look* like you’re enjoying it but hey if the humans are happy, right? Second off – I can be a fussy little character. I’m not too proud to say that. I just don’t see me as a ‘dress’ up kind of guy. Buy hey if the mom wanted too, I would let her. Like you said, it makes the humans happy and smile. That’s our jobs!
Dear Bacon – Have you ever heard of the Red Hat Society? I’m a member and they have monthly meetings. I think you need to look it up in your area and do a posting on it. I think it would be fascinating. Signed Fun Times
Dear Fun Times – I’ll do that! I’ve heard mom talk about it with her friends. There’s also purple hats, right? 🙂 See, I do pay attention even though sometimes mom doesn’t think so. You wear that hat with pride and look forward to a posting in the future my friend.
Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –
.June 8th. is Best Friend Day . This is a great day to express to your friends how much you really appreciate them and cherish their friendship. Of course, we need to do this year round but today is a special day to share your appreciation and honor your friends.
Best friends are great people. You can spend countless hours with them doing all kinds of things and sometimes just doing nothing at all. Whether you are talking up a storm on the telephone lines or just sitting in a room together watching a movie without talking, friends are great companions. You share everything with your best friend – from your secrets, your goals in life, your desire to endless achievements and your disappointments in life.
So today – go celebrate Best Friend Day. Call up your bestie and spend some time, give them a small gift or hug, call an old friend you haven’t heard from in a while and if you don’t have a best friend – go find one today!
This squirrel is very fortunate to have so many friends here on this blog as well as at the Hotel Thompson. Huge thanks to all of my friends here – Ya’ll are the best of friends!
