Snorts! So the other night mom/dad went out to dinner. When they came home, I got mom’s iPhone and went through the pictures. Why do you ask? Because she always has such neat pictures on there and this time she *knew* I was looking so I wasn’t doing something I wasn’t suppose to be doing. So I found this picture below of daddy. I just looked at mommy like okay and…So she explained the picture. And my friends – believe me it’s hilarious.
So mom and dad went to this place local place called Chick-Fil-A. It’s a great little place that has wonderful family values and great chicken by the way says mommy. Well they got done eating and went to check out. Daddy said he was going to go ahead and go out front and wait on mommy. Now, remember that daddy has very limited vision – he can see maybe tops 20% and it is no way in this world clear at all. You see him wearing glasses in a lot of the pictures but that’s mainly to protect his eyes from anything that might get in his face.
So mommy was like, “Are you sure you can get out front by yourself?” Daddy was determined that he could do this so he said yes and went outside.
A few minutes later, mommy came outside to see daddy sitting like above. Daddy was ‘talking’ to the guy on the bench with him. Mom couldn’t help but laugh. You see the bench/statue are new. It is the founder of Chick-Fil-A, Truett Cathy. The restaurant has recently put this in front of the restaurant in honor of Mr. Cathy who he passed away last September.
Of course after taking the picture – snorts, mom walked over to daddy and said, “What are you doing?” Daddy replied, “Talking to this guy.” Mommy said for kicks and giggles, “Was it a good conversation?” Daddy replied, “No, he was kind of quiet.” Okay by this time mom was rolling. Mommy finally couldn’t take it anymore and said, “Honey, it was a statue.” Daddy didn’t miss a beat and said, “No wonder he was slow talker.”
Now you have to know mom/dad. They are jokers by heart and no way mean harm in any of this. They both thought it was good plain fun – accidents happen. Trust me. There’s lots of things that happen here at the Hotel Thompson. Daddy would much rather laugh about them then sit and cry feeling pity about himself.
Dear 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.
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!
Dear 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!
Dear 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 🙂
Okay, how many takers do I have here with this funny? Are you weird, deranged, freaky or just plain nutty like me? Do you not care who knows it?
I’m raising my hoof. I’m me. I’m one of a kind. I have ups and downs. I laugh, snort, cry and squeal like a rooster/dog. I run and jump, play and sleep. I have fun.
I meet new friends and remember my old friends. I foam at the mouth when I’m excited. I fart when I overeat. Hey, it’s who I am.
But in the end, I’ll be your friend through thick and thin! ❤ you my friends – old and new!
T.G.I.F. Everyone recognizes those four letters from all over the world. Thank Goodness It’s Friday. Those four letters brings smiles and hoorays to the humans and us anipals. But I bet you didn’t know that they also have another meaning. Shocking huh?
You see my mom has worked a lot of different jobs. She once worked with our local school system for six years. Trust me, she has told me stories of those times. There is *never* a dull moment working with elementary children – ever! One of the stories that she told me was about T.G.I.F. I’ve never forgotten it and neither has she. It was sweet and kind and so childish – it was great and still brings a smile to mom’s face and mine to this day. I’ll tell you what happened and you be the judge here okay.
Mom was in the front office of the school and this little boy who was in the first grade came into the office. He was crying. So mom being the gal she is walked up to him and immediately hugged him. She then took him to the side office and they sat on the couch together. You see he was having a bad day and it was only 9:00AM. His dad was overseas in the military and his mom had to work. She couldn’t get off work to come see him in his first grade play. He was beside himself! And for a first grader – this was just the end of the world – you can imagine.
Mom talked to him for a few moments and tried to get him to brighten up a bit. She volunteered to step in for his mom to come see him in his play. His upside down face turned into the biggest smile you would ever see and his tears of grief turned into tears of joy. He just couldn’t believe that my mom was going to do that for him. She got the time from him that she should attend and helped him clean up his face.
That’s when she noticed that one of his shoes were untied. She got down on the floor and tied it for him. That’s when she saw this T.G.I.F. written on the toes of his shoes.
