Dear Bacon

20130220-081219.jpg

Dear Bacon – I’m a clown in the circus.  I love working in the circus except for one thing – I don’t like when people squeeze my red nose.  Other than that, it’s a blast.  Signed Pancho the Donkey Clown

Dear Pancho the Donkey Clown – That’s *all* you worry about?  People squeezing your red nose?  Not your clothes, the hat or the make-up.

Just the people squeezing your nose?  Dude, go with it!  Have fun at a job you love and earn your money while you can.

Maybe one day you can move to that donkey retirement community you’ve been looking into.


20130220-081227.jpgDear Bacon – I’m a happy pooch now.  I had some problems with my teeth and my master took me to the dentist.

I am so happy with the results!  AND he put in a little bling for me.  What do you think?  Signed Smiling Pooch

Dear Smiling Pooch – Well, your smile brought a smile to my face – it must be working.  You do look really happy in that picture.

And, I kind of like the bling.  Your master must really love you my friend!

Dear Bacon – Sometimes in life, we just have to stop and smell the roses.  You know, take each day one day at a time and focus in on the moment.  I’m a lot more relaxed these days doing that.  Signed Goat of Leisure.

Dear Goat of Leisure – Yes my friend.  You do look really relaxed in that floatie.  I think I may have to take some time today to enjoy the moment.  Thanks for sharing your deep thoughts.


20130220-081245.jpgDear Bacon – We have a game in the house where us purr things get into the boxes that are attached by the string.  The string is attached to the barky thing that pulls us around the house.  It’s really kind of fun.

Maybe you can use this traveling method for your purr things?  Signed Sliding Kitties

Dear Sliding Kitties – Yes I think that would be perfect for the purr things here.  *I* can get in a box and *they* can pull me around the house.

Perhaps they can bow down to me as well – snort.  It does look like a fun way to travel through the house!


 

20130220-081254.jpgDear Bacon – It’s cold outside in this weather.  Betsy and I have been knitting and this is what we came up with.  It’s quite the hit on the farm.  It did take us a while to knit it though – it’s hard knitting with your beaks.  What do you think?  Signed Two Cold Chicks

Dear Two Cold Chicks – That is very creative.  I’m kind of digging it.  Do you think you ladies can create something for me?  I would cherish it and wear it forever!

31 Days of Spook – Evil Passenger

There you are in the morning getting ready for work or school.  You are running around trying not to forget anything.  Was that coffee you put in the refrigerator and milk in the cabinet?  You don’t know.  You are running late now.  You have a piece of toast in your mouth, coffee cup in your hand, your purse on your shoulder and tote bag in one hand.  You go out to your car, open the door, get in and crank it.  That’s when you feel that you are not alone.  You look over in the passenger seat and oh my dear piggy heavens above – you see this!   What the oink!?  What do you do?

Do You Judge a Book by its Cover?

Do you sometimes look at a person and make a quick judgement of that person’s character without knowing anything about them?  It’s only natural and I think humans do it all of the time.  I mean personally, if I was to cross a clown – regardless if he looked nice or not – I would squeal like there was a 1000 hounds after me cause I ain’t talking to no clown.  Capice?

But humans – they are different.  Do they judge other peeps by what they wear?  How they look?  What they drive?  Sure they do.  That’s what makes us all different.  BUT, are they missing out on some good friendships along their way in life by making harsh judgments?

Take this situation that recently happened with mom.  Mom, dad and Nana went to a Mexican restaurant recently.  There was a line and they were standing in a corner waiting for their name to be called.  In the meantime, this family came in (mom and dad with their daughter who was about 8-9 years old).  They put their name in to the hostess and stoodd across the room.  The daughter wanted to be held so the mom picked her up.  In doing so, her hands were full so of course the hub unit holds her purse (which is another posting for another day – snorts with piggy laughter).

Now, mom thought it was hilarious to see the guy holding the mom’s purse so she walks over to him.  She gets really close to him and says, “That purse is awesome with your outfit.  I give it a 10”.  Now, the guy grins and says to mom, “Thank you darling.  I try to coordinate.”  It was totally hilarious and a great laugh was held by all.  When mom came back, Nana was laughing and told her she was brave.  Mom asked why and Nana told her why.  This is what got our minds going about judging a book by its cover.

Would you have done this like mom?  How about if the guy had long black hair, a beard and a mustache?  How about if the guy was wearing all black with lots of studs and leather?  How about if the guy was a biker dude?  How about if the guy was packing heat and had a gun on his hip?  Would any of this make a difference to you if he was a ‘biker dude’ or ‘the guy next door’?

I’m not saying that all biker dudes are nice – far from it.  But we are saying that sometimes one needs to not make first judgments of someone.  And let me tell you something, if anyone knows that it’s mom with her new purple hair.  Some of the most friendliest and loyal friends can just be different 🙂  That’s your piggy thought for the day ♥

Bacon’s Tales of Terror

Today I have a really good tale just for you.  I hope you are brave enough to read it… and survive without wetting your pants – snorts. Today, I’m going into a different direction that I hope you enjoy.  This past weekend was so beautiful that we actually went outside on the back deck of the Hotel Thompson and spent some time around a firepit.  Don’t worry about me – I was safe with my mommy around the fire – snorts.  But as we were out there, campfire stories started to be told.  I thought I would share one that scared this little oinker beyond belief.  Buckle up your belts.  It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

There was a family that lived in a huge antebellum home in the south.  They had two adorable children that were elementary school aged, a little boy and a little girl. The parents thought they would go out on a date – something they had not done in a very long time.  They called a friend of theirs that had a teenage daughter that offered babysitting services.  She advised that she would love to sit for them on their date night.

The date night came and the babysitter came over.  The husband and wife went over all of the emergency numbers and schedule with the babysitter.  The husband advised her that with the house being so huge, they would prefer her to stay in the play room.  The play room was huge with everything you could image.  A big screen television, a satellite, computers, games, etc.

After the parents left, the babysitter played with the children for a while and then it was bedtime.  She got them settled in their rooms and told them stories to help them go to sleep.  Afterwards, she went down to the play room for the remainder of the night.  

She settled in and looked around the room.  In the far right hand corner, there was a children’s rocking chair with a clown sitting in it.  She shivered.  The clown was scary.  It seemed to watch her every move. No matter what she did, the clown just seemed like it was watching her.  At times, she thought it was moving.  But it couldn’t, right?  It was just an ugly scary looking clown.  She couldn’t figure out why the couple would have it but then again this was a play room so each to their own.

   Finally, she couldn’t take it any longer.  She called the father on his cell phone and asked him if she could move to another room because this clown was freaking her out.  The father told her to quietly get the children, get out of the house and go next door to the neighbor.  What?  She didn’t understand why but she did what she was told.  A few minutes later after getting to the neighbor’s house, she saw flashing lights and police cars arrive at the house she just came from.  What in the world was going on?

A few minutes more passed and then the parents of the children came home and immediately came next door.  She was so confused.  She asked the father what was going on next door.  That’s when the dad told her the news that still shakes her to this day.  For weeks, the children had been having nightmares about waking up and seeing a scary clown in their bedrooms watching them.  The parents thought it was just that – nightmares.  And then when she called about the clown in the play room watching her, they knew the nightmares were not nightmares but actually true.  

You see, they didn’t have a scary looking clown doll in the play room.  The scary looking clown was actually a little person dressed up like a clown that had actually been living in the huge antebellum house for weeks waiting for the right time to kill the family.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month.  This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are going to highlight Halloween.  What did you do for Halloween as a child?  Did you trick or treat door to door, go to a Halloween festival or did you stay at home?  This month let’s share what we did and show pictures – costumes, movies, whatever your favorite Halloween captured.

BOO!  Mom never celebrated Halloween per say when she was growing up.  She says that she went out one time during her childhood – it was cold and wet and she hated.  And what did she dress up as that one time?  You won’t believe it – a CLOWN!  Can you believe that?

After that ill fated time trick or treating door to door, her parents got smart.  Why go door to door and worry about your child when you can keep them home to have fun.  So from then on, mom and siblings told their parents what kind of candy they wanted and their parents bought it for them so they could have it on Halloween.  As their dad passed out candy to the regular trick or treaters, mom and her siblings had pizza, ate candy and watched scary movies on television.  Those are some of her best memories – watching the likes of Vincent Price, Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi just to name a few.  I even found this picture of mom during her teenage years.

Dear Bacon

20140111-195437.jpgDear Bacon – It’s so hot!  I mean really HOT.  I can’t take it anymore.  I don’t even have the stamina to look for nuts.  I can’t even move from this limb.  Can you help a squirrel out?  Signed Hot in Atlanta

Dear Hot in Atlanta – I feel for you my friend.  It is so H.O.T. here in Atlanta.  I moved from my bedroom to the living room and was almost sweating.  I need winter back.  Come on over to the Hotel Thompson.  You can crash with Journalist Rocky the Squirrel in his air conditioned treehouse in the backyard.


20140111-195446.jpg

 Dear Bacon –  There is always that *one* family member that you just roll your eyes.  This is us trying to take a serious family picture for our dad for Father’s Day.  Do you see how well that worked out?  Stupid on the end has to make faces.  What to do my friend?  Signed Classy

Dear Classy – Snorts.  You know your dad might just appreciate that look on your siblings face.  I mean if he is the family clown – him looking serious might not be a fun picture.  I say go for it my friends.  It’s better to laugh than cry!


 20140111-195456.jpgDear Bacon – Rosie was having a bad day so I offered her a shoulder to cry on to get past her woes.  That was three hours and now she is asleep.  I don’t dare wake her but my shoulder – I can’t feel it anymore.  It’s past the tingling stage.  It’s now at the do-I-even-have-an-arm-there-anymore stage.  Have you ever been stuck like this?  Signed Big Brother

Dear Big Brother – You are the man my friend.  That was so thoughtful of you to have a leaning shoulder not only to cry on but to sleep on.  Of course, you can’t wake her.  After what she has been through – whatever that might be – a leaning shoulder from big brother will make all of the bad go away.  I’ve done it a time or two with Mouse Girl.  Awesome job my friend!


20140111-195508.jpgDear Bacon – There I was my fellow pig.  Eating my carrots and minding my own business.  That’s when it happened.  I heard the refrigerator door open.  You know that sound, right?  The sound of freedom. The sound that says the store is open.  Squeals!  There’s so many good things in that cold box.  Don’t you feel the same?  I couldn’t help but suck in air and squeal.  I wanna go shopping in that place!  What about you?  Signed Bandit

Dear Bandit – I feel you my fellow pig and squealer.  I love that huge cold box.  It has such mysteries of delights stored in it – from cold stuff to frozen stuff.  Once I opened the freezer and was sucking on ice cubes when mom busted me.  Why ice cubes?  Why not.  They tasted so delicious and were so cold in my piggy tummy!  Let me know if you get to go shopping in there.


FRIENDS – Please remember that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please email me your pictures and letters 🙂

31 Days of Spook – United Kingdom Clown

Oh dear piggy heavens – why?  Can you explain this to me why?  Why does some guy think it’s funny to dress up like a clown and walk the streets Chesterfield, United Kingdom in the middle of the night?  Do you understand when I say this is what nightmares are made out of.. do you agree?  Personally, if I went outside and saw this at 3AM, I would wake up my fellow neighbors from snorting and squealing in fright.  

So my friends in the United Kingdom, lock your doors at night and don’t look out your windows.  You may see this idiot psycho clown walking down your street.  Shivers to mergatroid!

Bacon’s Tales of Terror

Oh my friends.  Can you believe that in a short couple of weeks, October will be here.  You do know what that means, right?  31 days of Spook will be on my blog!   31 days of something scary, something that goes bump in the night, ghosts and ghouls, horror, haunts and other spooks.  Shivers – I get excited just thinking about it!

I’ve been working hard here in my bedroom searching around the world for stories to tell.  It’s hard grunt work – literally.  Sometimes I even scared myself!  With all of that work, I almost forgot about September 13th. It was almost here before I knew it.

I thought to myself, “Self, what can I do for the 13th of September?  What can knock people to the floor, make them scream and run to their mothers?”  It had to be good.  It had to be awesome.  Then BAM it struck me and I took flight to the internet.  Courtesy of said internet was some random pictures I found.  You see, these pictures were so good that I think they need NO explanation.

So without further ado, BOO my friends!

Blast from the Past

Shivers – Just look at that thing – and I say that loosely.  

20140321-084504.jpgI told you a couple of months ago that mom has been cleaning up some old boxes from her and dad’s childhood.  Well, this is another ‘toy’ from mom’s past.  Toy – snorts.  I think this is why me and mom think clowns are evil.  Look at that thing.  How in the world do you ‘play’ with such a thing and not cringe when you see clowns?

Can you just imagine that evil clown hiding in the box.  You hear the music going and going and then all of a sudden “POP” goes the clown.  Give this little pig a break.  I’m going to say it.  I would just drizzle right there and then!  I think the house would be flooded.

Did you have one of these things during your childhood?  Admit it, go ahead.  And  how do you feel about clowns now?

That’s right.  I thought so.  You’re welcome.
