Safe travels my dear Bashful –
This morning was the day. Bashful left for his trip afar. None of us thought it was going to be as emotional as it was. We all woke up this morning and none of us were in a real talkative mood. Bashful was so excited last night that he didn’t go to bed until sometime in the early hours this morning. When I got him up this morning he was tired – but happy and excited.
We all had his favorite for breakfast – Coco Pebbles cereal – and talked about his new adventure. Mom/dad told him to be on his best behavior and that they didn’t want any phone calls or emails that he was misbehaving in any way.
Mom/dad took Bashful to his pediarocktrician yesterday. They gave him a clean bill of health and gave him a shot for motion sickness. I hope that it lasts his entire trip.
I, Bacon and Mouse Girl all said our goodbye’s to the little guy this morning at the house. Mom/dad took him to the airport for his flight. Daddy said that mom totally collapsed and cried like there was a faucet turned on full force. Poor mom – she’s so sentimental like that. She just stood at the window watching the plane load up and take off. She wouldn’t even leave the airport until they couldn’t see the plane anymore. Poor thing – I’ll have to give her extra snuggles tonight.
Thank goodness Bashful got his Passrockport. He needed it this morning going through customs and checking in for his flight. Since he’s under age, the flight attendant said she would take good care of him. He even earned his wings – cool huh on Delta? For his flight meal, he is going to get rockstew. I *know* he will be excited about that. It’s one of his favorites.
The only thing we are not too sure about is the flight movie. Since it’s such a long flight, they are
showing Castaway. This kind of worries me. Let’s just hope that the movie doesn’t cross over into reality. I’m not too sure how Bashful would do stranded on a tropical island. He burns really easy.
So to the host family – you *know* who you are 🙂 He should be arriving in about 6-10 days. It’s a really, REALLY long flight – snorts. I hope you have loads of fun with Bashful and we can’t wait to read about his adventures. Take plenty of pictures and have FUN!

You know it gets to a point in a little pigs life that he has to start thinking about his future. Even Bashful has already started thinking about a career as a police rock. The little fellow has high ambitions. He’s working on his ‘demanding, authoritative’ voice now. It’s a work in progress.
So that got me thinking. I really need to start thinking about a career. You know, just in case I have to support mom/dad in their senior years. What? It could happen. So here are some possibilities that I have come up with.
I’m still thinking about a life on the opposite side of crime. It kind of runs in the family. 🙂 There are K9’s out there that help detect bombs and drugs. Why can’t there be a Pig Detector? With my snout, I have a strong sense of smell. I think I could also detect bombs and drugs… of course with the right amount of training.
I wonder if the academy would take me? I think I’ll look into this and find the number in mom’s phone later. Maybe she can even pull a few strings for me and get me enrolled. And hey, if I get in then perhaps we can get Bashful in later? It’s worth a shot, right?
And I’m still not giving up on the idea of being a pilot. That would be pigawesome! If I could fly an airplane, perhaps this would finally put to rest the old saying about when pigs can fly. I mean heck with enough thrust any of us can take flight… even if it is only for a couple of minutes.
If I could fly a plane, just think of the possibilities. Do you think Delta would hire me? I could spruce up the old resume. How would you feel the next time you were flying and the pilot was ME? Of course, I would oink first before I told you we were taking off and I would try to keep the turbulence down. Thoughts?
Oh the days of being a cowboy.. running around the great pastures… all of that open space and fields.
Okay – maybe not a cowboy. I’m not that ready for nature yet.
Give me a little bit and I might change my mind.
But for now, let’s skip this for the time being.
What about working in road construction. Hey in Atlanta, Georgia, they are *always* working on the roads. I could direct traffic with the best of them. Maybe even my favorite news channel, Fox 5, here would do a special on me.
I can see it in lights now – “Tonight at 11PM – special on oinker that directs traffic in busy downtown Atlanta. Don’t miss it!”
Oh, that sent chills up my spine. This could definitely be a possibility my friends.
So what do ya’ll think my friends? Do you think any of these would work for me or do I need to keep looking for different jobs. Where was my guidance counselor when I was in school? Let me know. I’m up for suggestions my friends. Just think of the possibilities!
Oink XOXO – Bacon
