Let’s just say we didn’t know about one of these talents here at the Hotel Thompson. WOWZER – Now you just have to go check it out. And remember, let Denny and Reilly know that this little oinker sent you 🙂

Hello my spooky friends. Thank you so very much for staying with me during my 31 Days of Spook. Have you been enjoying the stories, the thrills, the things that go bump in the night? Today, we have another guest story submission. This one is from my friend Bree. Do you know her? She’s Reilly and Denny’s mom. If you don’t know them, you have so got to visit their blog. They are great. And personally, I don’t think those pooches take a bad picture – I’m just saying. Please make it a point to visit my friend Bree – tell her that Bacon sent you. This is her tale – enjoy my friends!
“When I was very little – only 4 years, we lived in London in a very old house. One morning I woke up and was very sick and feeling very scared but then this little old lady came into room and sat on the bed talking to me. She told me some wonderful stories in her soft Scottish accent and she would sing to me too – and lull me to sleep. Every morning she would come and visit. She was very small only about 4′ 5”, had grey/white hair pulled back tightly and wore a little cap like the the one Andy Capp wears. She also had a little white pipe – like the one Popeye had. She wore a long black skirt with big pockets on the front of it, big brown lace up boots and had layers of sweaters on. She smelled of lavender and even to this day I still think of her when I smell it.
My Mom came in one morning and asked me who I was talking too. I didn’t know her name so I pointed to her and said, “Grandah”. Mom looked around and couldn’t see anyone and yet there she was sitting on the end on the bed. Whenever any of my brothers or sister was sick she would appear and we always knew she was about the house because we suddenly would smell the lavender. Our Mom too smelled the lavender but never saw or knew who Grandah was until one day she showed us a very old photo of our great grandma and it was her! She had been dead for over thirty years and yet there she would come visit us when ever we were sick and we knew she would make us feel better.”

When I started this blog many moons ago, I never thought I would meet as many nice people as I have and start as many wonderful friendships as I have. It seems like there are so many people that I feel like I’ve known all of my life. It’s a wonderful feeling. Friday afternoon, I got a box in the mail addressed to me. I was so piggy excited. Daddy wouldn’t let me open it though. He told me I had to wait until mommy got home from the worky place. I’m telling you, 5:00PM couldn’t come fast enough!
Mommy came home and I was already jumping all over her with excitement. I finally let her put her purse down and pushed her over to my box. First, there was a lovely handmade card that came out. Can you tell it was made for me?
Look at that picture – it looks just like me! And it says, “I heart my pot belly pig”. AAWW – I resemble that remark. It was so touching and special. A car with my resemblance? Then, mom opened the card and read it.
Oh dear sniff sniff. They love me. They really do? My friends Reilly and Denny at http://cowspotdog.blogspot.com/ thought about this little oinker and sent me Aussie? I’m not sure who was making it rain more – me or sentimental mommy? We went further into the box and what did we find? My new friend Aussie…
.Do you see Aussie?! Isn’t he the most cutest little piggy you’ve ever looked at?? He looks so much like me – even down to his pot belly! I can not tell you how much this gift has touched my little piggy heart my friends. Reilly and Denny – thank you – thank you – thank you. I can’t say that enough. Aussie is the cutest little piggy. In fact, I’m letting mommy take him to her worky place to put in her office. That way everyone can see him and talk about where he came from. He’s awesomesauce!
Thank ya’ll so very much my friends!!
