Contest Winner

Do you remember our contest a couple of weeks ago here?

I introduced mom’s new ride Hot Lips which is a 2018 Toyota Prius Hybrid to you.  The contest was to guess –

How many miles do you think mom can go on ONE tank of gas?

The person who gets closest without going over will get a little something from the Hotel Thompson.  Remember, don’t go over on your estimate but get as close as you can.

First off – thank you to all of the people who guessed some great numbers. Mom was shy only by a couple of days of going almost ONE month without filling up Hot Lips.  As you can see from the picture below, mom went a total of 542 miles on ONE take of gas – can you believe that?!  We were so psyched here.  And now we are watching to see how far she goes on her second tank.

So the winner of the contest is katsrus!!

Conpigulations sweet friend.  Send me your address via email and I will get you something in the mail.

Thanks everyone for playing! ❤

Cyber Hugs and Contest Time

First off I want to say thank you to all of my friends.  I don’t think I say that enough around these parts.  Thank you.  Thank you for listening to my rumbles and grumbles from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson.  We all send you massive amounts of hogs and snout kisses, puppy kisses and kitty licks.


Now

CONTEST TIME!

I introduced mom’s new ride Hot Lips to you last week.  Let’s play a game.  Mom’s new car Hot Lips is a 2018 Toyota Prius Hybrid.

How many miles do you think mom can go on ONE tank of gas?

The person who gets closest without going over will get a little something from the Hotel Thompson.  Remember, don’t go over on your estimate but get as close as you can.

I want to add this part to you – mom bought her new car on APRIL 17 and the dealership filled it with gas at that time.  Mom has not filled it up herself.  So here we are May 1 and it is still going on that one initial fill up by the dealership.  So you might want to think about that in your guess.  When mom actually fills up Hot Lips for the first time, she will take a picture of her odometer (which was 15 miles when she bought it) and share it with everyone to end the contest.  Good luck my friends ❤

My Daddy My Hero

Last week on 07/29/2016, it was National Wing Day.  Now this day is kind of fun for my humans.  You see a local restaurant near us puts on a challenge for how many wings can you eat.  Last year, my dad ate 37.  He thought that was awesome but there were some peeps that did so much better.  So knowing my dad, the challenge was on this year for 2016!

He prepped, he exercised, he didn’t eat a thing hardly all day Friday until Challenge Time.  It was almost like watching Joey Chestnut prep for the Hot Dog eating contest on Coney Island every year for the Fourth of July.  I pushed him on – even at times encouraging him to exercise just a little bit more.  You know to show him his full potential in this challenge.

Then as the time got closer and mom was headed home from work, dad went through the, “Oh no, what have I got myself into” syndrome.  It’s typical I’m sure.  But never fear friends.  I talked him down and tried to take his mind off of the situation by chasing him up and down the hall.  I looked at it as trying to build up his appetite.  Yeah that was it.

So they arrived at Hooters and daddy was ready to throw down.  His first 10 were regular breaded wings medium and they came with french fries.  But daddy is no fool.  He let mommy eat the french fries.  I mean they are just potatoes to weigh heavy on your tummy, right?   The second 10 were breaded lemon pepper wings.  He was going strong and mommy was snapping pictures and doing a play by play on Facebook.  The next 10 were back to regular breaded wings again.

But then daddy hit the proverbial tummy wall.  Could he do it… would he do it?  YES – 10 more were delivered to the table in a breaded Cajun seasoning (mom didn’t get a picture of those for some reason).  Dad found his second stomach and gobbled them down.  That was 40 WINGS, beating the last count of 37.

But wait a minute – hold everything.  Mommy had some left on her plate and he ate two of hers.

♥ The bottom score – 42 WINGS ♥

Way to go daddy!  And friends you can start practicing now.  There is what 359 more days until the next National Wing Day!

Bashful in Nature

  Never fear my friends – have you been wondering about Bashful and his antics of late?  Well, I’m glad to report that he has been settling down here at the Hotel Thompson for a much needed rest these past couple of weeks.  He advised that he had jet lag something wicked from his last trip so rest for the weary huh?

But never fear.  He is still going strong and he and the other pet rocks have been putting their heads together to come up with a contest for very soon – so be on the lookout for that okay.  It should be a real hoot.

AND the rock clan has something BIG they are also working on for the end of May – doesn’t that pique your interest?  They never slow down – what can I say.  Just like Bashful taking time out to explore and have fun with some of his friends in this picture.  Can you spot him?

Thanks and I Got a Snowball!

Oh my friends.  I received a package in the mail the other day.  I love receiving packages.  This one had my name on it but dad made me wait to open it up until mom got home from the worky place.  Spoil sport that he is huh?  Snorts with piggy laughter.  Mom *finally* got home and yes it seemed like YEARS to me with this package teasing me all day.  So mom helped me open and OMP – Squeals with piggy delight.  I was one of many winners on a contest that our friends at Animal Couriers had a couple of weeks ago. They sent me a desk calendar with some awesome pictures of some of the pets that have transported.  Smiling – and trust me there are some beautiful pics in it!  I’m going to let mommy keep this calendar on her desk here at the Hotel Thompson.  That way both of us can see it every day.

And I Got a Snowball!

Can you believe that my friends?  An entire snowball all to myself.  Okay, maybe not the cold outdoor snowball you might be thinking of but I prefer this snowball and so does my mom – snorts with piggy laughter.

Evil Squirrels Nest 2014 Holiday Card

OMP (oh my pig!)  

I entered Evil Squirrel’s contest to win a hand drawn artwork for Christmas.  Every day for the past week, I’ve been going to the mailbox at the end of the drive to wait on the post man.  The first couple of days I met him, he jumped pretty high when he first saw me.  Maybe it was the snorting?  Maybe it was the fact that I was hiding behind a bush when he rolled up and jumped out at him?  I’m not really sure.  But since our acquaintance, we have been meeting daily for Christmas cards. I think he’s getting used to me now.

Well yesterday, I finally got my card – squeals!  I just *know* it will be worth a million catrillion dollars one day!  I’m such a lucky pig!  So friends, be sure to check out the other cards that were sent here.  And Evil Squirrel – you are the best – I have a piggy crush for sure!

Elf on Shelf Contest – Winner

IMG_0146 IMG_0145-0

So this contest is said and done.  First up – I want to thank EVERYONE that submitted emails and EVERYONE that voted.  We really appreciate that here at the Hotel Thompson.  There were some great emails sent and don’t worry – there will be more contests in the future 🙂

It was a very close race in the voting.  The top 3 according to the list were:

No. 3 – Evil Squirrel

No. 2 – Sammy

No. 1 WINNER – Samuel and Wallace!

Congratulations my friends.  South Africa is going to get their very own Elf on the Shelf.

Samuel and Wallace, please send me your address to send you your new friend.  You will need to name him before Thanksgiving.  Keep in mind, he is related to our Don Juan but who knows what his personality will be until after he receives his powers the day after Thanksgiving.  Don’t forget to post updates on him.  We will surely miss the guy here at the Hotel Thompson.
