Mom was going through our baby book last weekend and came across the picture of me when I was a mere babe on the day that I adopted them. I think I weighed right around 3-4 pounds at the time and I was around 5-6 months. Wasn’t I small. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m small now. But back in the day, I was really small. Mom called me her little furball all the time. I fit so snugly in Nana’s hands that day. She held me all the way home. aaww – those were the days.
I was so glad to be adopted to my forever home. Sometimes it’s hard for me to remember that far back – three years ago. Sometimes it feels like I’ve been here at the Hotel Thompson forever with my family. I wouldn’t want it any other way for sure.
Hope you have a great weekend friends. Now I leave you with Jokes from Daddy. I hope you enjoy 🙂

Today, August 16th, is National Tell a Joke Day. YAY! Today should be filled with chuckles and laughs all around. Participate in this laughable day and tell some jokes. Do it in person, pass it along in a few emails or blog about it. The more jokes you tell today, the more fun today will be. Start the laughter and keep it flowing.
In honor of this day, Bacon has decided to tell a few jokes that he has heard. Get ready to laugh friends.
Joke 1 –
One of my neighbors owns several cats. On a recent visit, she introduced them to me. “That’s Astrophe, that’s Erpillar, that’s Aract and that’s Alogue.”
“Where on earth did you get such unusual names?” I asked
“Oh, those are their last names,” she explained. “Their first names are Cat.”
Joke 2 –
Why are sharks mostly salt water creatures?
– Because pepper would make them sneeze.
Joke 3 –
Why do seagulls fly over the sea?
– Because if they flew over the bay they’d be bagels.
Joke 4 –
What do you get when you cross a flower and a dog?
– A Collieflower (cauliflower) – snorts
Welcome my friends to another week of Travels in the South. My dad says that sometimes you just need a good hamburger, something solid and substantial. This week he wanted just that – an awesome hamburger. You’ve heard us talk about the great pizza that a restaurant called Mellow Mushroom has but did you know they have build your own burgers? Daddy saw it on the menu and just had to try it… of course while mom had a wonderfully delicious salad – poor mom.
The burger is 100% black angus beef topped with dad’s favorites: pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar and swiss cheeses and bacon – gulps. Dad said it was a handful and was so delicious. Of course, it did take two hands to eat and plenty of napkins. I guess that’s a good sign to a great juicy burger, huh?
So if you have a Mellow Mushroom close by, check them out for their burgers. They also have vegan burgers which mom says sound delicious.
Barks! Hey sweet friends. How has your week gone? Here at the Hotel Thompson, we’ve had storms with icky rains and thunder all week. It was like someone outside was throwing a huge bowling party for a while. It doesn’t help that the Hotel Thompson sits in a little gully and there is a creek in the lower part of our backyard. So when it thunders, it almost shakes our entire house. At times, I feel like Toto in the Wizard of Oz.
Mom caught me in deep thought pondering about the rains yesterday. I was watching the rain come down outside the window. Every once in a while, my tail would wiggle in anticipation of the next BOOM of thunder. One day, I will catch that boom and make it mine for all of the times it scares me.
Hopefully the rains will stop for this weekend and we can have a great time of snuggles and treats. I hope you have a great one as well sweet friends. Now I leave you with silly daddy in his Jokes with Daddy. Enjoy!
Who doesn’t love a good onion ring? Mom/dad were visiting a place a couple of towns over from the Hotel Thompson. They saw homemade onion rings on the menu and decided to give it a whirl. This alone amazed me because here is a little tidbit for you. Dad hates onions. He hates them raw. He hates them in salads. BUT, he loves onion rings. I think that’s a little weird, right? But then again, we are talking about my daddy – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.
The onion rings finally came to the table and oh my piggy heavens – look at that mountain of goodness! These are huge!! They are fresh cut, hand battered and made to order – thus the ten minute wait to get them upon ordering.
The restaurant serves them with a Cajun dipping sauce (which when mom asked was told it was a ranch sauce with cajun spices). And it does have a little kick. Mom/dad asked for extra dipping sauce. Trust me, they said you needed it because look at how many onion rings you get. And mom said the price you wouldn’t believe – $4.99 for this tower of an appetizer.
But I just have one question. Not that they were good because mom/dad both said they were. My question is why does daddy get to play with his food and I can’t? Go ahead mom. Tell me. I’m waiting.
