Paw Time with Houdini

Barks my friends!  Welcome to another week of Paw Time with Houdini.  Can you believe I’m a big pooch now?  I am!  I’m a big dog – I’m ONE.  It was a great week of celebrating with Nana’s at the birthday party and then Wednesday night with mom/dad, Bacon, Mouse Girl, Hemi and the rock clan.  Don’t let those rocks fool you – they know how to PARTY!  I know we kept Bacon from his beauty sleep that night but hey a dog only turns one once, right?

I got lots of cool toys for my birthday.  My favorite – oh barks!! – it’s a ball inside of a ball.  And let me tell you my friends, I WANT THAT BALL!  It drives me crazy.  I can feel the ball inside with my paws.  I carry that ball around and bark at it and tell it to get out.  It doesn’t mind me!  Can you imagine that?  Well Bacon took a video of me trying to make that ball mind.  I thought this week I would share it with you. Enjoy my friends!

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

HAPPY CINCO de MAYO my friends!!

You’re asking yourself what does that mean?  I’m here to tell you.  May 5th is a date that is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride – to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first five years of the American Civil War.  This date of May 5th is not to be confused with September 16th which is Mexican Independence Day.

 

Go out and show your support for Cinco de Mayo – have some Mexican food and celebrate your support.

I know Bacon is going to encourage his mom and dad to go out for date night tonight and have fun.  I think he’s encouraging them because he thinks they will bring him back a piggy bag.  🙂 smart pig huh?

Celebrate my friends and have a great and safe time!

Thank You From Hemi

aaww – Thank you my friends.  Hemi sends massive hugs.  During his surprise birthday pawty last night, I read him all of his birthday wishes.  He was overwhelmed! After cake (which Mouse Girl tried to jump out of), we ran around the house playing HARD, chasing each other and yes friends.  He swatted my butt – not once – not twice – but about three times playing tag.  Thanks.

He was all tuckered out afterwards.  Mom took this picture of him passed out.  You think he played hard here at the Hotel Thompson?

OH AND FRIENDS –

I was on mom’s Facebook account last night.  I found some of you and sent a friend request.  If you got something from June Smith Thompson as a request – that’s my mommy 🙂  If you think *I* post crazy stuff here on my blog, you should see the crazy stuff mommy posts.  She’s crazier than me!  If you get a chance, hit her up.

1,000 POSTS

Today hits my 1,000th post!

Just a little over two years ago when mom/dad adopted me, I never dreamed that I would make it to this point.  You’ve been with me and listened to my snorts, my ramblings and read my blog.  Because of *YOU*, my blog is where it is today.

You have listened to this little piggy as he has shared about his life at the Hotel Thompson.  I can’t say thank you enough.  Without you, I wouldn’t be here having as much fun today as I did during my first post.  Thank you my friends.  In fact, thank you from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson.

Consider this post, a hug from us to you.  May your day today be as brightened as mine is hitting 1,000 posts.

I had to share what mommy woke me up with 🙂

What Goes Up Must Come Down

20130716-101748.jpg

Let’s all remember a very important thing in life.  What goes up, must come down.  It’s hard life lesson to learn.  Remember a while back and I was talking about the leak at the Hotel Thompson and having to call a contractor to look at the roof?  Well, we found out what caused the leak.  You might just be as surprised as we were.  Are you sitting down?  It was a bullet.  Let’s just leave it at WTP (What the Pig?!)  I can’t repeat what daddy said when he was told.  Apparently, someone thought it would be just fun and giggles to shoot a gun up in the air.  Thus, what goes up, must come down.  This is so very dangerous!  And the bullet came down on our house and caused a leak right over where daddy sits and watches television.  Do you know how frightened we all were when we learned this?  And, our neighborhood is not bad – it was just one of those times where people thought they would celebrate by shooting up in the sky, probably around New Years or the Fourth of July.  We can’t pinpoint exactly when it happened but once is enough okay.

I know this picture above looks like a horrid roof but it’s only 10 years old and was ‘suppose’ to be a 20 year roof.  One thing is that we live in the south and moisture will always be a problem here.  It gets muggy and yuck in the Summer – I’m not a big fan of that season.  I prefer cooler months, you?

Well, the contractor spoke to mom about what she wanted as to replace everything.  Of course, daddy laughed and said mommy has what did he say – expensive tastes.  But then again mommy said she wanted what she wanted the end of discussion – snorts – way to go mommy for putting her hoove down.  So everything was ordered and dad coughed up the checkbook.

A couple of days later, two pallets of 30 YEAR shingles architectural design showed up along with ridge material, felt and massive piles of wood for the new decking.  I in my little piggy life have never seen so much action in the front of the Hotel Thompson when the big truck unloaded all of this.  I just stood in front of the storm door and watched in amazement.  The ‘beeping’ of the big truck backing up was was hilarious.  I tried backing up and snorting but it didn’t seem the same.

Then the next day, this HUGE big metal box like thingy was dropped off in our driveway.  Mommy had to move the cars so they could get it there.  It was massive and empty.  It looked kind of mysterious but mom said to watch and see the next day to find out what it was.

Finally the third day early in the morning, it seemed like an entire village showed up at the Hotel Thompson.  There were so many people and I wanted to watch.  Dad locked the storm door so I could sit in front of it and watch.  It was amazing!  Daddy said they were going to ‘raise the roof”.  I didn’t understand that then until I watched all.day.long.

20130716-101756.jpg  And when I say all.day.long, I mean from 9AM until 6PM that night.  When mommy came home from the worky place, this is what she came home to.  Insert angelic music here – it was astonishing.  What a difference!  Mommy says that it makes the house seem so much bigger.  I personally think that it makes the house look entirely different.

But of course, she wasn’t home during the day when the ‘village’ was working on the roof.  Honestly, it sounded like a herd of elephants tap dancing on the roof.  And I admit, it scared me the first couple of times when they sent the shingles up the ladder and dropped them on the roof… or when they scraped all of the old roof off into the dumpster thingy… or when they pulled up all of the old decking and then replaced it.  I might have squealed a couple of times and ran to my room… but I wasn’t scared.  I’m a big pig.  Now the purr things – that’s another story.  They were scared.  They went straight to mom/dad’s room and hung out under the bed all day.  I think I saw them come out maybe a couple of times while the work was taking place.

20130716-101802.jpg

But it was a long day.  In fact, when mommy came home, daddy actually told her ‘he’ had a headache.  I found this strange because mommy is usually the one telling daddy that.  Daddy said he especially had a headache when he coughed up the checkbook again for the final payment.  Poor daddy.

But doesn’t it look fantastic?  And mom, she’s already talking about siding around the front eaves of the house, taking down the Mickey Mouses (oh no!) and doing the sides with siding.  Daddy just rolled his eyes and gave her the checkbook.  Isn’t he trained? snorts.

Earth Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world.

BREAKING NEWS**BREAKING NEWS** BREAKING NEWS**BREAKING NEWS**BREAKING NEWS**BREAKING NEWS**BREAKING NEWS**

 

April 22, 2013 is EARTH DAY.  Every year, more than 1 billion people in 175 countries will participate in various Earth Day events on this date.  It is the largest civic observance in the world.  The purpose is to raise awareness about important environmental issues. 

The first Earth Day took place in 1970.  After witnessing the affects of an oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, US Senator Gaylord Nelson organized a grassroots environmental teach in on college campuses across the country.  Many people believe that this first Earth Day celebration marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement.

Celebrate today – plant a tree, help clean up a beach or park and/or participate in an event near you.  Help to keep this world a better place for everyone!

 

This is Journalist Rocky the Squirrel reporting out – have a nice day!

It’s Almost Time

It’s going to be here before I know it – I’m so excited!! 

I will be turning the big ONE on Saturday, September 15, 2012.  Can you believe that I’ve been alive for almost a year now?!  Doesn’t it just seem like yesterday I  started my blog to all of my friends here? 

I’m not sure what mom has planned but she keeps saying words like surprise, big day, her little baby and she’s been sniffling sometimes when she says those things.  What’s up with that?  She’s also being real secretive.  A new thing she has started is spelling out words.  Hee hee – I watch Sesame Street on my television.  I know some of those words. 

Whatever she has planned, I know is going to be awesome.  My purr brothers tell me that mom is real sentimental (boy that was a hard word to learn).  I know there will be pictures and I will share.
