Time to Decorate

We finally got everything together here at the Hotel Thompson and finished decorating for the holidays. ¬†We don‚Äôt put up a tree here for obvious reasons ‚Äď two purr things, a pig and a dog now. ¬†That tree wouldn‚Äôt stand five minutes being decorated in our living room. ¬†Trust me on that. ¬†Between the purr things climbing it and exploring, the dog watering it and chewing on the bottom branches and well me ‚Äď looks innocently ‚Äď head bunting it, it would get tired and fall down to sleep. ¬†I‚Äôm just saying and being realistic here. ¬†It‚Äôs a good thing mom and dad agree.

So no tree here. ¬†But don‚Äôt frown. ¬†We have a Mickey Mouse lamp pole. ¬†That fits in perfect here at the Hotel Thompson. ¬†You know my mom LOVES that mouse with the gloves and we still get the pretty lights from the pole. ¬†And the pole is sturdy. ¬†I mean really sturdy like 20-25 pounds. ¬†Hey, it‚Äôs gotta be sturdy to hold that huge Mickey Mouse head ‚Äď snorts.

We also put out my stocking for Christmas. ¬†What? ¬†You think it‚Äôs too small? ¬†I told mommy I needed a bigger one. ¬†One can never be too big for all of the goodies that dear Santa might leave in my stocking. ¬†You know ‚Äď like fruits, vegetables, Gold Fish and Animal Crackers ‚Äď snorts.

I just have to find the perfect place to hang my stocking.  For some reason, daddy says we can’t put it on the fireplace mantle this year.  Something about it pulling down on the mantle last year.  One heavy stocking and your scarred for life huh?  Bummer daddy.

So I have to find a place for my little stocking.  I’m thinking on the back of the front room door.  That would surely be a nice place to put it.  And also Santa won’t miss it, right?  What do you think.  Any suggestions?

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month. ¬†This month for¬†Bacon’s Show and Tell we are going to highlight Halloween. ¬†What did you do for Halloween as a child? ¬†Did you trick or treat door to door, go to a Halloween festival or did you stay at home? ¬†This month let’s share what we did and show pictures – costumes, movies, whatever your favorite Halloween captured.

BOO! ¬†Mom never celebrated Halloween per say when she was growing up. ¬†She says that she went out one time during her childhood – it was cold and wet and she hated. ¬†And what did she dress up as that one time? ¬†You won’t believe it – a CLOWN! ¬†Can you believe that?

After that ill fated time trick or treating door to door, her parents got smart.  Why go door to door and worry about your child when you can keep them home to have fun.  So from then on, mom and siblings told their parents what kind of candy they wanted and their parents bought it for them so they could have it on Halloween.  As their dad passed out candy to the regular trick or treaters, mom and her siblings had pizza, ate candy and watched scary movies on television.  Those are some of her best memories Рwatching the likes of Vincent Price, Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi just to name a few.  I even found this picture of mom during her teenage years.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month.

This month for¬†Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting¬†school. ¬†Now I looked far and wide to come up with some pictures of mom/dad from their school days. ¬†My goodness – we are talking dinosaur age here – snorts with piggy laughter. ¬†But I did find some that I would share with you my friends. ¬†Now trust me, these are good!

.

The first picture is of my dad. ¬†I’ve talked about it before how he was a big football player in his school days. ¬†He absolutely loves the game. ¬†This is him in his football outfit around his senior year, sometime circa 1981.

Handsome and YOUNG huh?  That was his number Р72.  Of course, he made shoulder pads look fashionable Рsnorts!  He was what my mom called a jock in high school.  She was the exact opposite.  She was what the football players called a nerd Рa smartie Рthe one the football players went to for help in their studies.  Yep, that was my mom.

.

.

This is her picture from graduation way back in 1987.  See that yellow cord?  She was an honor graduate.  Cool huh?  She still has that around the house here somewhere.

So there you go – two pictures from mom/dad’s school time. ¬†Different schools and different times. ¬†There’s no telling though in this small community how many times mom/dad crossed paths while growing up. ¬†All I gotta say is thank goodness they finally did meet up and stay together!
