Happy First Day of Autumn!

Yeah – the cooler weather is finally getting here.  I just love Autumn – or Fall – whichever you prefer.  I love the cooler weather.  I love that it means that it’s almost the holidays.  And this year, mom says it means I can run and jump in the leaves in the back yard.  I totally can’t wait.

Happy Autumn my friends!  XOXO – Bacon

Paw Time with Houdini

 

This picture tells you absolutely everything you need to know about how hot it is here in the south of Georgia.  The heat index this week has been torturous.  Just moving it seems to make sweat and heat.  Even mom/dad says it is like living in a walk in sauna.  There are *those* peeps that say don’t complain because winter will be here soon.  Then there are *those* peeps like my mom/dad who absolutely love the winter.  Not the ice, snow close down school/businesses cold but the 60’s or 50’s temps outside.  Now that is weather my mom/dad LOVE.  As they peeps say, you can always put on clothes to stay warm but you can’t keep taking off clothes to get cool.  Well you could but dad said you might get arrested outdoors.  Hilarious huh?  Speaking of dad, now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Hope you have a great weekend sweet friends ❤

Journey with Friends

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


 Hey sweet friends!  How did you do last week?  We are moving right along here at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m actually doing good.  I’ve been working a lot of different hours but I’ve also been watching what I’m eating.  It’s meshing the two half way these days.  Complicated but it’s working.  I no way got my walking in because of work.  But I can say that the weather is getting cooler.  Most days it’s still hotter than you can imagine but every couple of days, Fall tries to kick in and make an appearance.  And another thing about fall – pumpkin.  Oh my!  I just can’t get enough of pumpkin.  I actually found a recipe for pumpkin muffins with cream cheese.  I’m going to see if I can tweak the recipe to get rid of some of the sugar and try it maybe this coming up weekend.  It sounds so marvelous.  I’ll keep you posted and try to take pics.  How are you with pumpkin – yay or nay?

So my friends – how was YOUR week?  Hugs to a great week.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – As you can see, I’m in this contraption my new humans like to call a box.  I call it a box of hell.  I mean I was okay with the humans putting me in it and taking me to their vehicle but to strap me in like the box is part of me – they will pay.  Not at first because I’m fortunate to be adopted.  But after a while… after making my new living conditions mine, they will pay.  I smell dog in this car so I do hope they have a dog and I do hope said dog is ready to be blamed for everything.  Signed Nails Out

Dear Nails Out – Oh pal.  I hate to say it but it’s almost funny to look at the picture.  Now don’t get me wrong.  I’m not laughing at your situation.  Of course I wouldn’t do that.  But the picture of a box with arms attached – oh have mercy.  I so understand the complete concept of payback.  That poor pooch doesn’t know what is coming to his digs.


Dear Bacon – Everyone keeps saying that can’t wait for winter or fall and the cooler weather.  I say no.  I like the summer.  You don’t see us anipals bundles up to go out to use the facilities.  You don’t see us anipals where boots and coats when it’s raining.  This is me from last year.  bbbrr – can’t you just feel the cold weather.  Nope. I think I’ll pass…. but I guess mother nature won’t let me.  So, it’s time to dig out my umbrella, scarf and rain boots again.  There’s nothing like trying to pee outside where water is already all over you.  Signed Special

Dear Special – You know I like the way you think my friend.  I myself am not very fond of the outdoors, especially in the elements.  Perhaps your humans can fix you a potty area off of the back door or something.  You know so you don’t get wet.  But if not, I have to say you look adorable in your fall outfit for sure.


Dear Bacon –  Hey dude.  I’m like saying to my humans that if the potential president of our United States can have a comb over, like why can’t I?  Right?  And I have to admit that like I carry the comb over so much better than that dude for sure.  I mean like for real!  This is like my look and I’m digging it for sure.  I like the close shave all except my comb over which makes me like stand out in front of everyone else.  I mean dude with that in mind, maybe *I* should run like for the president of these United States.  I think like I have as much experience as the others, right?  Would you like vote for a dude like me?  Signed Dude

Dear Dude – I think everyone in the United States should write you in when they vote.  Just your views on life and your style, that makes you stand out in front of everyone else.  Nobody can claim that you have a double making appearances.  Nobody can claim that your cold.  Nobody can claim that you are not your very own dog.  I like that in a running campaign.  I say go for it.  And remember, free treats for everyone that votes!


 

Dear Bacon – They say you can be whoever you want to be.  I’ve always wanted to be a dinosaur.  I mean who wouldn’t, right?  I’ve always roared and told my humans that I’m strong like dinosaur.  They found this horse coat and boom they knew it had my name all over it.  Now, I love wearing it.  Wouldn’t you be scared if you saw me coming your way?  You would, wouldn’t you?  Signed Roar

Dear Roar – Oh my piggy heavens!  I’m shaking with fear.  That is so awesome my friend.  I love your coat and I think you make the coat.  I think it’s awesome that your humans bought if for you.  In fact,with your coat on, you could be a superhero.  I can see it now on all the televisions and papers – “Super Roar Adventures”.  It has a great sound to it, right?  Keep having an awesome time in your coat dear friend!


Dear Bacon – I claim not fair!  My doggy rights have been violated.  Who do I need to make a report to?  My friends are buttheads.  That’s right.  I said it.  They kept telling me about a new friend they met and how we had to meet because I would love them.  That’s when they introduced me to the new friend and then stepped to the side to take a picture of me saying hello.  Buttheads.  How do I get even Bacon?  Signed Caught Sniffing

Dear Caught Sniffing – Shaking my piggy head.  I’m so glad that I’m not the only one that gets caught in these types of things.  I’m so sure that there will come a time when they forget about this incident and everything with the stars line up just right that you will get even for sure.  AND I’m thinking it might be better than this episode… maybe.

 


❤ Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue emailing me your pictures and letters ❤

Travels in the South

Oh my friends.  Is it hot enough for you outside?  It’s so blistery hot that you just can’t do anything.  It’s all mom can do sometimes just to waddle to the mailbox and back.  Yes, it’s that hot here in the south.  In fact, it’s so hot here that I saw a yellow jacket taking off his jacket due to the heat.  It’s so hot that when mom buys bread at the grocery toast, by the time she gets it home it’s toast.  The chickens are laying hard boiled eggs.  The cows are giving evaporated milk.  Okay I’ll stop.  you get it.  It’s H.O.T.

Well with everyone having such a heat wave, I thought I would share a picture of you that mom took last Christmas.  Her and dad went and stayed in a cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains.  They arrived one night and it was cold – shivers.  They woke up the next morning to a blanket of white.  Now doesn’t that feel cooling?  Close your eyes and think of it with me.  Better?

Happy Dance – Happy Dance

Guess who my mom/dad talked to this morning – go ahead guess.  I bet you can’t guess.. can you?  Do you know?

They got to talk to my brother Easy’s  parents across the pond.  So cool!  They absolutely LOVED it.  This isn’t the first time they have spoken but it’s like its the first time every time – why?  Because they are so cool!  We just love it!  But hey – now that I think of – why didn’t *I* get a chance to snort at Easy?  Why were mom/dad hogging the phone?  Bad mom/dad.  I think ya’ll should go to your room for some punishment.  Yeah that’s it.  Time off for you two.  Don’t worry.  I’ll be in charge of the other anipals.  Snorts with evil piggy laughter.

Hope everyone has an awesome Saturday – piggy out!

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – There.  I’m ready for Winter.  Bring it on Mother Nature.  I’m ready to get rid of the heat and welcome the cooler weather.  My scarf is ready and I’m waiting.  Tap.tap.tap.  That’s my paws tapping while I’m waiting.  When is this winter suppose to get here pal?  Signed Scarf Dog

Dear Scarf Dog – Oh my friend.  I agree with you about weather.  And you do look so very sharp in your scarf – you will be ready for it when Mother Nature decides to play nice.  Now, we have had some cooler days and I can tell with my piggy senses that it’s coming.  But winter is still a far piece away.  Autumn will be here September 23.  Winter is not officially here until December December 21.  So we do have some time.  But Autumn does bring cooler weather too.  And this little oinker can’t wait!  Until then, stay cool my friend.

 


Dear Bacon – Sometimes you just need a sleep buddy to hold on to to keep the nightmares away.  It’s always better knowing someone is there for you.  Do you have a sleep buddy?  Signed Ginger Twins

Dear Ginger Twins – I think that’s a fabulous idea my friends.  Mom and dad go to sleep holding hands.  They say that otters do the same thing so they don’t float away from each other in the water.  You see, lots of anipals do this and I do believe it’s a wonderful way to fall off to sleep knowing someone has your paw.  Sometimes I sleep with mom/dad and get close to them.  Other times, Houdini or Mouse Girl will bunk with me and lay real close.


Dear Bacon – It’s not bad enough that I have to wear the cone of shame.  Oh no.  I should have known something was up when my human dad wanted to hold me for a second.  I could feel him doing something to my cone of shame but didn’t know what.  That is until I met up with the mirror and saw his creation.  Really dad?  Perhaps I should get you a cone of shame?  Signed Bat Cat

Dear Bat Cat – I have to admit it my friend but that cone of shame is priceless.  How many other purr things do you know that can say their cone of shame was made just for them.  I say wear it with pride and hey give your human daddy some slack.  His creativity could make you ‘the cat’ of the neighborhood.  Give it a test and see what I mean.  Others will be so jealous!


Dear Bacon – Okay I let the humans sleep in on the weekend.  I didn’t pounce on them and wake them up.  I showed respect and refrained from barking my head off.  But this is where I draw the line.  It is now noon and my bowl is empty.  I’m going to start wasting away soon without my food.  Darn these paws.  If I had fingers, I could get my own food out of the bag and refrigerator.  Humans – WAKE UP.  Signed Hungry Jack

Dear Hungry Jack – WOW – noon huh?  That is total control on your part my friend.  Perhaps pull the humans blankets off of them?  They will wake up quickly with that.  And this picture is priceless for them.  Perhaps email or text it to their magical cell phones.  They wake up pretty quick when those things ring too.  Hope you get fed soon 🙂

REMEMBER friends.  Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your pictures and questions via email.

Shopping with Mom/Dad

Sometimes I wonder if my humans fell on their heads repeatedly as small children.  Really I do.  You see a couple of weekends ago during mom’s marathon shopping spree, they took pictures and a video of something that I just found this past weekend.  Mom always has the coolest pictures and such on her iPhone.  In fact there is no telling what you will find on that phone.  So there I was, reviewing her pictures and came across a video.  Oh My Piggy Heavens.  After watching it a half of dozen times – yes it’s that addictive, I had to ask mom about it.

Well, they were at Wally World (for most people that would be Walmart) – snorts.  They saw this item on a shelf and knowing my dad he just had to see what it was and how it worked.  They pushed a button and the next thing you know they are laughing like two hysterical kids in the toy department.  Mom said she almost peed on herself.  You know it’s good huh?

Of course when I saw it, I thought about twerking team captain Fozzie from down under.  Why do you ask.  Let me show you the video.  And please tell me – do your parents do anything crazy like this?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

And P.S. Please take note – that is a lady that walks by laughing at mom/dad with the twerking teddy.

Numbers Are Our Friends

A lot of people look at math and numbers and screech out, “Eeww”!

My mom is different.  It runs in her family.  Her sister is the same way.  They like numbers.  They like math.  They do math problems to relax.  Weird aren’t they? To them dealing with math, is as easy as tying your shoes.  I don’t agree.  That’s why me and dad wear shoes that slip on or use velcro – snorts.  Also to me, dealing with math is like a dog working a yo-yo.  It just isn’t natural, right?

But I have something for you this morning that will blow your mind my friends.  I want you to get out a piece of paper and a pen and/or pencil.  Now, here’s the scary part – pay attention now.  I want you to write down exactly what I say below.  Okay?  I’ll help you out each step of the way.  I learned something while I was gazing at the calendar this morning and it was totally cool.

Write down the number of the month.  This is November so it would be 11.

Now write down the number of what day it is.  Today is the 12.

Now write down the two digit year.  13

What do you have for today when you write it out?  11/12/13

Neat huh?  Who said numbers can’t be fun?  Now go share 🙂

Happy Monday My Friends!

 

Hope everyone had an pigawesome weekend.  There was finally some cooler weather here in Georgia.  Have I told you that I absolutely LOVE me some cooler weather?  I can’t stand the heat from the summer.  Now that it’s Autumn, there’s just a tad bit of coolness out there.  It’s great!  I take after mommy in that aspect.  She loves the cooler weather *almost* as much as me.

So this past weekend, I snuggled a lot.  No news flash there huh?  Snorts.  We watched some football – that I was ready for!  Watching football brings back some fond memories for me.  Daddy has told me stories on how my great, great, great, great, great, great grandpig played in the first games.  He was thrown around a lot but loved his job.  Every since then, my kin folks have played.  Now, I know you probably don’t think so.  You’ll have to think hard on what position my ancestors play.  I don’t care to get that involved in the game.  I’ll just watch from the safety of my couch beside mommy where I’m safe if you know what I mean.

I helped mommy around the house.  Daddy kept singing Mary had a little lamb to us.  I’m not sure why?  But mommy, she would laugh about it so that made me happy.

I tried helping daddy play his Angry Bird game.  I don’t think he appreciated my help in touching the iPad screen with my hooves.  I don’t know if he was worried that I would beat his score or what – snorts.

I even played with the purr things here this weekend.  I was nice … especially since they threw me a surprise birthday party last week.  I let that Hemi crawl all over me.  He even rode my back one time when we were playing chase.  I wish mommy could have gotten a picture of it but that purr rascal is FAST.  He boomeranged off me like I was a balloon animal.

Other than that, we chilled and enjoyed the weather.  You?

Oh, I thought I would throw this funny out to all of my friends on this Monday.  I know mommy enjoyed this picture.  She said it was SO TRUE.  I feel you mommy – can’t wait for you to get back home tonight!

Everyone have a happy Monday!
