Time to do some partying and dancing my friends. Me and dad have a secret but you have to keep it to yourself okay. Are you ready – pinky hoof/paw promise – you can’t tell – especially my mommy that I told you. July 3rd is mom’s 29th birthday again. We are throwing her a surprise birthday party here at the Hotel Thompson on July 3rd. She doesn’t have a clue!
ssshhh – you didn’t hear that from us okay. I gotta go practice some twerking now for the party 🙂 Where is Fozzie – the twerk team captain? Snorts!
I’ve been telling you my friends that my human dad is off his knocker. I don’t care where he goes, he *always* gets into trouble. You gotta believe me. He is NUTS! I’ll tell you two examples from this past weekend – then you will believe me.
First Example –
Dad and mom went for Chinese food Saturday night. They went to their regular place where they know the staff. Of course during dinner, dad is picking on the waitress and they are laughing up a storm. Towards the end of the meal, the waitress thought daddy was done with his plate and went to get it. Daddy turned around to her and did a Kung Fu fighter stance. THUD! The waitress started laughing so hard that people on the other side of the restaurant turned to look to find out what was taking place. That’s my daddy – nods head.
Second Example –
This same night at the Chinese restaurant, the waitress asked daddy if he wanted anything else. He told her no because he was dancing tonight. Shakes piggy head. Does this man EVER stop? He told the waitress that his stage name was Stretchmarks. Just so you know – I looked him up on line. Here’s a picture of him performing – (oh and daddy – who’s the funny one now? Snorts)
Dear Bacon – When they humans are away, the Kung Fu Fighting comes out to play. This kitty was “Kung Fu Fighting” – go ahead you can sing and dance with me. I won’t tell anyone. “Those kicks were fast as lighting. In fact, it was a little bit frightening – But they fought with expert timing.” Signed Funky Chinatown
Dear Funky Chinatown – Awesome! What a way to start a Dear Bacon issue. Love that song. It’s one of mine and dad’s favorites. Heck, you should see dad put on his headband and go to town – he’s got the moves like Jagger! But don’t worry, you’re moves are tops!
Dear Bacon – I may look like a super dog but really I’m not. I’m waiting at the driveway for my super hero to get home from school. When he gets off the bus, I give him the cape. In my eyes, he will *always* be my super hero regardless of how old. Do you have a super hero Bacon? Signed Side Kick
Dear Side Kick – Let me tell you something my friend, you are not only the bestest Side Kick ever – you are my hero. ❤
Dear Bacon – Make it stop. Why. Why do we have to be punished like this and given these drownings? Why can’t I just stay dirty? Signed Soaking Wet
Dear Soaking Wet – Aaaww – little guy. I’m sorry you feel this way. Let me explain something to you. Your humans love you. They really do and it doesn’t seem like it but me trust on this okay. If they didn’t love you, they would’t bathe you and take care of you. You know – you wouldn’t have your forever home. And here at the Hotel Thompson, if your clean guess what. You get to snuggle in the big bed. Is that the rule there too? If so, go ahead and get it over with so you can get some bonding time. Baths don’t take forever. Close those puppy dog eyes and roll in some water my friend!
Dear Bacon – My human. All mine. I don’t share. This is my human’s hand. I will hold it and hug it and call it mine. All mine. Signed George
Dear George – I say go for it my furry friend. I would gladly give you my hoof as well – you look way too cuddly! That’s one lucky human for sure!
Dear Bacon – The shock! It was amazing! We couldn’t believe it! It was like a train wreck and we couldn’t move away from the window. What we saw Old Man McDonald doing to Mrs. McDonald – WOW! He is one lucky man. Oh, you’re asking what? Come closer and we will whisper it to you. He was doing the dishes for her! I know! Shocking huh? A man in the kitchen doing the dishes. We all almost passed out too! Signed the Farm Hands
Dear Farm Hands – What the pig!? I’m so showing this to daddy. WOW! Yes you are right. That Mrs. McDonald is one lucky lady for sure!! Let me know if you see anything else.
Remember my friends, Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Keep your letters and pictures coming – sent them to me on my email 🙂
REMEMBER FRIENDS – We can’t have Dear Bacon issues without YOU. Keep your pictures and questions coming to me via email 🙂
Oh my friends – guess who has been out again unchaperoned together? This is what I found on mom’s iPhone. OMP (Oh my pig!) They are so going to get in trouble one day – snorts. You just can’t touch that!
Time to do some partying and dancing my friends. Me and dad have a secret but you have to keep it to yourself okay. Are you ready – pinky hoof/paw promise – you can’t tell – especially my mommy that I told you. Tomorrow is mom’s 29th birthday again. We are throwing her a surprise birthday party here at the Hotel Thompson tomorrow. She doesn’t have a clue!
ssshhh – you didn’t hear that from us okay. I gotta go practice some twerking now for the party 🙂
Oh dear – snorts. I think Auntie Sharon created a monster here at the Hotel Thompson. Mommy went to bed early last night. She said she was ‘drained’. I’m not sure what that means to her but to me it meant short snuggle piggy time. I was left to the devices of daddy. Joy. Great. I’m excited. Really. Snorts.
So there we were in the living room – just me and dad. Even the purr things wimped out and went to bed early. Dad looked at me and I looked at him. He then looked at our curio cabinet. I snorted to tell daddy no and not to think about it. But we know my daddy. He doesn’t listen to me. This is not going to end well my friends. He took out the Japanese headband from the cabinet that Auntie Sharon sent back with Bashful.
This is not good. I’m trying to use all of the piggy telepathy I could to muster to speak to him mind to mind. Don’t do it daddy. Put it back. You will get into trouble. But of course, he doesn’t listen to me and we are one mind short – snorts. Then he does the dumbest thing. He looks right at me and says, “This won’t hurt anything and mommy doesn’t have to know”. Rolls piggy eyes. Has he not learned *anything* in 26 years with this woman? She KNOWS EVERYTHING.
He put on the headband. Idiot. I swear that is what this man’s middle name. In fact, I think if you look up stupid in the dictionary, his picture dressed just like this will be there – wearing his Angry Birds shirt and everything. I snort at him and do you know the man had the audacity to snort back at me?
He walked over to our stereo equipment. I was like what is the idiot doing now? I can’t start to explain this silly grin that overcame his face. He was like, “We have to have some theme music”. I’m like what? Highway to Hell? cause that is definitely the direction you are headed with the headband. Or perhaps it is Another One Bites the Dust because you will be if mommy catches you. He started to play the music and that’s when I really rolled my eyes, jumped on the couch I normally sit on and waited for the show waiting with my camera.
Oh dear piggy heavens. Tell me the man is not reinventing Kung Fu Fighting. Listen old man, Do NOT – you hear me now – DO NOT give up your daytime gig. What do you call this position? Crouching Daddy Stupid Stance? This is not going to end well. You do realize that, right?
There he was dancing and singing along to his song. What he didn’t realize was that he woke up mommy. And guess who was in the hallway watching this performance of a lifetime? Yep, mommy. When he turned in his dance and saw her in the hallway, let’s just say that Crouching Daddy Stupid Stance went down fast on the floor. Guess that headband couldn’t save you then huh daddy dearest?
Squeal! You know the only thing that I love almost as much as food is an award – double squeal!
Awards just make me want to get up off the couch and do a happy dance. They excite me that much! Sometimes when dad sees me dancing, he gets up and dances with me too. It’s only awkward when mom walks into the room. But I digress, that’s a story for another posting.
Back to the award. My friends Piggy and Puggy at http://iarxiv.com/2014/02/14/awards-for-fellow-bloggers/ gave me the Super Sweet Award. aaww – they really like me and think I’m sweet. Thank you my kind dear sweet friends. If you haven’t met Piggy and Puggy, you *have* to visit their web page. Tell them that Bacon sent you. Piggy and Puggy are piglets in art. That’s kind of soft part in my little miniature piggy heart.
They gave me this award on what better day than February 14, 2014 – love day.
5 super sweet questions I have to answer:
1. Cookies or Cake? I love me some cookies – chocolate chip are my favorites!
2. Chocolate or Vanilla? I don’t get a lot of chocolate but I love me some vanilla!
3. Favorite Sweet Treat? Oh my – there are so many to choose from. I want to say Animal Crackers. Mom and Nana buy me huge containers of them – snorts
4. When do you crave sweet things the most? All.of.the.time – snorts. I am a piggy.
5. Sweet Nick Name? Ssshhh – don’t tell anyone okay but mommy calls me Piggalicious. Rolls piggy eyes – it’s so embarrassing.
Today, I’m offering this award to everyone who doesn’t have it. Why? Because all of you my kind friends are so sweet! If you don’t have this award or even if you do, please accept this as my gift to you for this month of love. Come in for a snout kiss and hug my friends!
You voted for it and the two winners were Benedict and Rockelle for their hot date on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014. The day started off with a lot of primping, planning and excitement. Manny and Bashful helped Benedict get ready for the day as Princess Coralena and Virginia helped Rockelle.
The day started off with the exchanging of some gifts. In the picture to the left, Benedict gave Rockelle a special box of chocolates telling her how he feels. Notice, “You Caught My Eye” was written on the box. Nice touch Benedict! In the picture to the right, Rockelle gave Benedict a red hot love ducky because she went quackers for him. Nice touch Rockelle.
Then, it was time for dinner. Mom and dad researched a lot of restaurants that would be unique for the happy couple. Something that touched both of them in
a different way. Something that made them think of their homelands. You know since Rockelle is from Australia and Benedict is
from the United Kingdom. A place maybe they didn’t have from their birth places but something that was unique to the United States. Then the light bulbs went off in their heads and they knew of the perfect place. Reservations were made and mom/dad (AKA the chauffers for the night) then bundled the two up for their romantic dinner.
Yep, that’s right. They went to Hooters on Tara Boulevard. The night started off with some shots in the picture to the left. After a few shots, Benedict and Rockelle loosed up a bit and started talking about their feelings for each other. In the picture to the right, you can tell that there was a magnetic pull to each other. Perhaps love was starting to erupt?
. They did a few shots to loosen up – you know liquid courage. Hooters is a great place that plays a variety of different music. Once they were loosed up, they were rocking to the music. Benedict asked Rockelle to dance. They did the electric rock slide and the pebble shuffle… you know instead of the two step or twerking.
After the shots and all of that dancing, they thought they might need to get something on their stomachs. You know drinking without eating makes one light headed and who knows what would roll around then? They started with some buffalo shrimp. Who needs utensils? It is finger food so they both dived into the plate. Benedict was such a gentleman and actually wiped some sauce off of Rockelle’s face. Of course the proper way would have been by using a napkin instead of using his tongue. But she seemed to like it.
Both liked fish so they decided to order the big fried fish sandwich. It was enough to share. And there is a reason that it’s called the big fish sandwich. Do you see how big that fish is? This was certainly one that didn’t get away and was a keeper. Benedict started on one side and Rockelle started on the other side. They met in the middle. And the little round things are tater tots. It’s often been said that Benedict looks like a potato so it isn’t a shocker that he absolutely loved the tots.
And Hooters, they are known for their wings. Yeah, that’s right. They’re known for their delicious wings. They got some of those to try as well. What’s a great night out if you don’t have lots of food. And they were there for several hours getting to know each other. The wings were fried, breaded and medium – mmmm – Rockelle loved them.
And, of course there is one more thing you have to do when you are at Hooters. I’m not sure if you are familiar with this restaurant. The staff is wonderful, gracious and very out going. They were wonderful to Benedict and Rockelle on their special date night. And since this was their first time at the restaurant, they wanted to give them a memory in a picture. So, they all decided to have their picture taken with the special couple.
Notice the two in the picture. And the girls were gorgeous. But after the photograph, Benedict assured Rockelle that she was the beauty and he only had eyes for her. aaww – way to go Benedict!
After they left Hooters, they didn’t want the date to end. They decided they needed something sweet. And again, Benedict came through. While they were in the back seat, mom/dad overheard Benedict tell Rockelle there was nothing they could get that would be sweeter than her. I think by this point they were holding hands as well.
They decided they wanted ice cream so mom/dad (AKA Chauffers) took them to Baskin Robins where they enjoyed a scoop of snickers ice cream. By this time, they wanted to sit at a separate table from mom/dad so they could talk by themselves. Mom and dad heard a lot of giggles so it seems they were getting along great.
Date night must have went really well because the next morning, Benedict and Rockelle were seen in the kitchen sharing a heart shaped doughnut. This special date night might be the start of something fabulous – maybe even a great relationship like Bogey and McCall. One never knows.
So friends, pat yourselves on the backs for a wonderful twosome.
I would like extend a special thank you to Mike Fiely the manager at Hooters and his wonderful staff located at 6785 Tara Boulevard, Jonesboro. Ya’ll really helped this little piggy out in making this special date night one to remember for my pet rocks. I would say, “You Rock!”
Tis the season to be merry my friends! Today, we have a very special issue of Dear Bacon. I bet a lot of you know my special friend. He’s been hanging (literally) around my house since Thanksgiving. For those that don’t know him, I’ll tell you a little back ground.
The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition came out in 2005 in a children’s book. The little Elf that comes with the book has a job between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. His main job is to watch over the household and report back to the North Pole nightly on if the people are naughty or nice. He comes back to the household by morning. There’s one important thing about the Elf. You don’t touch him as doing so will erase any Christmas magic that has been blessed upon him. Every morning that he comes back from the North Pole, people in the household find him in different places. But remember, it’s all magic!
So in honor of Christmas, we have the Thompson Elf – Don Juan – representing in the Dear Bacon issue. We hope you enjoy. XOXO – Bacon
Dear Don Juan,
You’re a fellow Elf. You know times are hard working for the fat guy. We work once a year. It’s hard to make a living like this. Sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do, right? Signed Elf Burglar
Dear Elf Burglar,
Step.away.from.the.pig. Don’t make me call the Elf Union. Elves do not steal in the houses that we are to watch over. Your special Christmas powers can be revoked with a snap of a finger. You know there are other jobs you can work while in the off season. I’ve heard Walmart is looking for door greeters. Or perhaps you can join a traveling circus during down times. Anything but stealing my fellow Elf.
Dear Don Juan,
Last night, the humans they stayed up until the whee hours of the morning making cookies. I just thought I would make my mark. You like? Signed Droopy
I like and I approve. This is what I’m talking about. Good little elves help out around the house not steal. Way to go my friend!
Dear Don Juan,
I’ve read on Bacon’s blog that his human father likes to play Angry Birds. Well, I thought I would share this photo for you to take notes on future escapades. Enjoy my friend. Signed Angry Elf
Dear Angry Elf,
That’s what I’m talking about! Thanks for the idea. I definitely will pursue this one tonight.. perhaps 🙂
Dear Don Juan,
When you have to go, you gotta go. The humans, they caught a picture of me in mid dunk. Thank goodness I was holding on and the humans didn’t see me in action. Signed Pepper Elf
Dear Pepper Elf,
Hey, you’re right. It’s nature. It’s part of life. At least you’re potty trained. Tis the season for magic in all forms.
Dear Don Juan,
What? We get kind of bored at night staying up all by ourselves. Sometimes we get back from reporting in at the the North Pole early. We gotta do something in our spare time for just us. I met this chick named Frankie Stein from Monster High. Dude, she has some moves! Signed Pole Elf
Dear Pole Elf,
Oh dear. This can’t be good. Where did you get that money? And dear Lord, you’re sitting on baby food. There’s a baby in the house. Step away from the pole and tell Ms. Stein to put on some clothing. Shakes head.. I may need to investigate this further. Can you email me Ms. Stein’s telephone number? You know, for my paperwork.
Dear Don Juan,
It’s just a little nick and tuck. What can I say? He was on the naughty list. I had to do something to snap him into reality that this is the Christmas season. Thoughts? Signed Barber Elf
Dear Barber Elf,
Are you insane?! We can’t do that. That poor fellow is going to be scared for life. Listen here you young Elf, report back to the North Pole ASAP. I’ve gotta get this taken care of with the humans. Where’s is that Easter bunny when you need him?
Dear blogville, I hope you enjoyed this special of Dear Bacon – Elf on the Shelf. Remember, tonight is the big night. Make sure you’re extra good and leave out cookies. I’ve heard Santa likes chocolate chip and macadamia. Well, that’s what my human daddy tells me. XOXO – Bacon
Note: Pictures were sent in by friends of mom who emailed them to me with questions.
Hello my spooktacular friends. Count Baconula here with Day 18 of my 31 Days of Spook. Are you still with me in my adventure? Still being brave or are you holding someone’s paw or hand by now?
Today, I want to share something wickedly scary. Something that scared my mom so badly when she was just a mere girl. Something that she had nightmares about. Something that was way beyond it’s time and deserves a place on my 31 Days of Spook.
If you dare, if you are brave enough, if you are not scared yet, you must watch this video attached. Shivers – there is no other than Michael Jackson performing Thriller with the voice over from Vincent Price. Enjoy my little spooks!
