Happy Birthday!

Today has been an important date all around – especially here at the Hotel Thompson!  You do realize what a huge fanatic my mom is about the mouse that wears the white gloves?  I mean, it’s bad enough that there are Mickey Mouse shapes across the facial boards of the Hotel Thompson… let alone the mouse is somehow someway in every room… and mom even has a tattoo of the fellow – shocker huh?  I think you can say that she’s serious about Mickey.

Can you believe that November 18, 1928, Mickey Mouse made his debut into entertainment.  He wasn’t originally known as Mickey Mouse.  Did you know that?  His first mark into history came in Steamboat Willie as Mortimer Mouse.  They changed his name shortly thereafter – good thing too, huh?

In 1929, they came out with a short called The Opry House.  This is when the mouse got his famous white gloves for his outfit.

.

.

And, did you know that Walt Disney himself did the voice of Mickey Mouse up until 1946?

And, the most important thing I found that I *know* mom is going to have a fit about.. there’s actually a Mickey Mouse cocktail.  It’s made with tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco and a lime wedge.  I guess it could be a grown up version by adding Vodka.

So, let’s all wish mom’s little idol a Happy Birthday!!

Boo! Mom’s Ready for Activities Tonight

IMG_9410.JPG

Mom’s ready for tonight.  She has her costume complete.  She even went and got her a pedicure.  She’s ready for the big time.

Are you going out tonight?  Are you dressing up?  Do tell – I need details my friend.

Us – we will probably visit Nana up the street and perhaps the neighbors.  Then it’s back to the Haunted Hotel Thompson – snorts.  That’s where we will pop some corn, watch some scary movies and then shake/shiver together in fright.

Whatever you do, ya’ll be careful tonight and have some fun!

I gotta share a picture from mom/dad’s trip to Australia.  One morning, mom/dad and Fozziemom/Fozziedad were staying at the Oscars on the Yarra in the Yarra Valley – beautiful place!  Magnificent suite with two bedrooms, a common room, kitchenette and a back deck.  So breathtaking!  Well mom sleeps with a fan on for white noise sound.  The next morning, mom wakes up and sees the next to her on the bed.  OMP – wouldn’t you have squealed with piggy fright?  Yep, that’s dad all bundled up like Casper.  Shaking my head snorting – those peeps of mine.  Just wait until I tell you more about their trip.

And years ago, mom made a movie about all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson for Halloween.  I thought I would share with you again.  Have fun – don’t be too scared – snorts and oinks. Make sure you watch until the end to see who is the most afraid here at the Hotel Thompson.

Dear Bacon

20130618-013318.jpgDear Bacon,
What? Don’t hate. You know you want a hat just like mine so you can play outside with it. Right? Signed Scooter

Dear Scooter,

Yeah, sure. I would absolutely LOVE to have a hat like yours to wear outside and make the funny thing on top go around and around Maybe if it was real windy, I could fly. I like the sound of that! So, yes two please my friend 🙂


20130618-013334.jpgDear Bacon,
This is just me telling my friends on how to get more seed and nuts from the humans. Any suggestions for us? Signed Cute as Can Be

Dear Cute as Can Be,

Well you can also take tips from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel. He knocks on our back door frequently asking for a cup of nuts for him and his family. Mom even throws leftover bread out to them to help them out. You know, you do what you have to do. This economy has hit us all! Take care my friends. If you are ever near the Hotel Thompson, knock on the back door. 🙂

Dear Bacon,
I’ve read about your adventures in your magical back yard. Now this is what *I* consider a magical back yard… with drink in hand! You’re mom promised you a pool. Make her pay up pal. Signed Simple Puss

Dear Simple Puss,

I like the way you think my friend! My mommy made a lot of promises to get me outside. Although its only happened once so far, I think I need to make her pay up with one of the promises being a pool. Do you think I would be pushing it to be able to lay in a chair with a drink and food like you have?


 

20130618-013414.jpgDear Bacon,
I love to play music. I can bang that keyboard with the best of them. This is me practicing, “Unleashed Melody”. It’s a sad and soothing song to us pooches. Have you ever heard of it? Do you play any musical instruments? Signed Wolfgang Pooch

Dear Wolfgang Pooch,

You do have some talent – way to go my talented young friend. I haven’t heard of that song yet but I will be sure to Google it on the internet and listen to it. I know it has to be amazing! As for this little piglet’s talent. Let me see…. I’m thinking…. mommy says I rip some good ones… but I don’t think she’s referring to a musical instrument for some reason 🙂

I’ll keep thinking about that answer. Take care and maybe we shall see you soon in the Hollywood lights!

Dear Bacon,

Don’t even say it. I know – I know. Yo Quiero Taco Bell. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s really funny. Ha Ha. My humans think it’s funny to dress me up as a taco. How would they like it if I dressed them up like a hot dog? BOL (Barking out loud)! Signed TB

Dear TB,

First off, tell me they didn’t name you Taco Bell – TB for short. Now that would be funny. Oh, I’m sorry. But look on the other hand. You are cute. AND, I bet if they took you to a Taco Bell in the drive thru, you would get free food. Free food – that’s good, isn’t it? Be proud little guy. Wear it with pride.

Paw Time with Houdini


 Barks!  Happy Friday friends.  Hope you have been having an awesome week so far.  It’s down hill from here – I can see the light of the weekend.  Hopefully this weekend I can rest and relax with mom.  Last weekend, I went for my yearly wellness check.  This is me and my doc, Dr. Waggoner.  He’s a pretty cool guy for sure.  He said I was in good health and my weight was great – isn’t that what we all want to hear?  In fact, my weight was actually down a little from last year.  Dad was worried because someone has been giving a few extra treats here/there.  So no worries daddy – bring me some more treats – barks!

Mom said I was her sweet little trooper today.  I got three shots and not one single time did I whimper or cry.  See, I was a big boy ❤  And I don’t have to go back for another year – now *that* is awesome.

Now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – I know you can’t wait for that.  Have a great weekend dear friends.

Paw Time with Houdini


Barks!  Oh friends – how was your week?  Mine was just barky wonderful!  I want to show you a new toy that I got last weekend during the great Snowmageddon here in the south.  It’s a Bark’s Woof Beer bottle.  It’s made of hard plastic and has a squeaky toy in the bottom part of the bottle.  It’s the cutest thing and mom/dad fell in love with it when they saw it in the store.  They just knew I would love it – don’t you?

They brought it home and gave it to me.  Oh my doggy heavens!  You should have seen me dragging it around the Hotel Thompson, squeaking and playing with it.  It was a blast!  Mom took this picture of me on the couch.  I actually fell asleep with the bottle in my mouth.  Mom said I couldn’t hold my woof beer.  Barks with piggy laughter!

Have you ever seen such a cute toy?

 Hello sweet friends – Happy 2017!!  Can you believe we finally made it to the new year?  We stayed up a little to watch the fireworks.  We had an awesome seat right in our front room at the Hotel Thompson where we could see out the window.  Some peeps in the hood went crazy – I don’t know how they even had fireworks left for midnight there were so many.  We were all okay as long as mom/dad were in the living room.  And with the noise, we all got to sleep in the big bed with them.  Now that was awesome!

This was one of the pictures that mom took of me and dad on New Years Eve.  Me and dad were having a blast.  I just love sitting behind him on the pillows and looking over his shoulder.  You know – someone has to keep him in line – barks with puppy laughter!

So with the new year comes new Jokes with Daddy – are you looking forward to this?  Today’s Jokes with Daddy is a little special.  You’ll see what I mean.  Have an awesome Friday sweet friends!

So, let’s all wish mom’s little idol a Happy Birthday!!

Let’s Take A Quiz – Since mom loves the mouse so much, I’m going to give you three statements.  Tell me if each one is true or false – how many can you get right about mom and her beloved mouse?

(1)  Mom has a tattoo of Mickey Mouse on her body.

(2)  Mom’s family name is Mortimer.

(3)  Someone close to mom was born the same year Mickey Mouse was in 1928.
