Bacon‘s Spooktoberfest – Day 5

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different.  We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest.  So if you miss a day, you can catch up.  Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


Barks – wiggles butt and looks cute.  YAY!  I’m a big boy now.  I get to stay by myself with the guys while mom/dad are away this weekend.  How cool is that?  I am a big boy now.  And Bacon is going to give me his room – that is way cool to be in bro’s room and bed.  It has everything in there!  I can survive three days without mom.  The guys say I can’t, but I can.  Surely I can.  I’ll watch the Anipal Planet and have fun.  I might even get a chance to play on the internet some.  Opps wait a minute…. I just got a text.  It looks like it’s from Nana.

Um.. no.  Nana wouldn’t send that but she’s in the video.  No way!  Who did this??  Hemi – it has to be Hemi.  Just why in the doggy heavens would he do that?  I am so going to tell…. no I’m not.  That little furball will get his.  Just wait.  I’ll get him back.  Trying to scare me!

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 4

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different.  We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest.  So if you miss a day, you can catch up.  Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


Meows – This being left alone for the entire weekend could be a blast!  Bacon and Houdini can have their spaces.  I want the big bed in mom/dad’s room.  That is like the happening place here in the Hotel Thompson.  I can watch my Investigative Discovery television channel and bring on all of my kibbles in there.  Nana can wait on my paws when she comes to feed us.  I may even purr at her once/twice just so she thinks I care… even though I don’t – evil purrs.  It’s what I do.  Wait a minute, I just got a text with a video.  Who would be sending me a video?  The number says unknown.  That’s weird.

Shivers to meow mercy!  Who in the heck would send me something like this?!  It has to be that pig.  Yep, nods head.  It has to be Bacon trying to get my fur to stand up.  It just has to be him wanting to see me get frightened.  As if.  This cat doesn’t do scared.  I’ll show that pig.  I’m not going to say a word.

Chucky Lives!

So there was mom/dad rolling down the street doing their errands one weekend.  They stop at a stoplight.  Mom looks over and says, “WTP”.  Dad of course is like what?  Mom says, “Give me the camera – Give me the camera – I gotta take a picture of this”.

Okay that kind of statement means Trouble with a capital T.  It can’t end well – I’m just telling you my friends.  I’ve been around mom long enough to know there will be a blog posting coming from those words.

So mom proceeds to click off a couple of pictures to dad’s continuous, “What’s going on?”  Mom told dad he wasn’t going to believe what she just witnessed – it was scarier than she could put into words – it was unfathomably – aliens surely had to have something to do with this – it was that BIG.

So for your visual understand, I blew the picture up.  What did I tell you?  Scary huh?  That is CHUCKY tied to the back of a pick up truck.  You know there’s a good story behind that!

31 Days of Spook – The Addams Family

 Today I want to go down a road that happens to be another one of my mom and dad’s favorite.  The Addams Family.  I know you want to do it.  I won’t tell.  Go ahead and snap those fingers my friends while you can.  Don’t be scared. Insert evil piggy snort.

The Addams Family actually got their start in the cartoons.  No, you don’t believe me?  Well let me educate you then.  The creator of the The Addams Family was American cartoonist Charles Addams.  Charles Addams was born in Westfield, New Jersey and his cartoons reflected around the macabre and dark humor.  The Addams Family was created in 1938 and were published as cartoons in The New Yorker.

On September 18,  1964, the first weekly series of The Addams Family came on television in black and white.  The last show was aired on September 2, 1966.  Funny thing to know during this time period, WIlliam Shawn who was the editor at the time at The New Yorker refused to publish any of Charles Addams cartoons on the The Addams Family while they were on television.   WIlliam Shawn thought The New Yorker had a more refined readership.  Once William Shawn retired from The New Yorker in 1987, The Adams Family was welcomed back.

In the television series, almost every member of the family demonstrated some uniquely inhuman almost paranormal traits –

  • Morticia was able to light candles with the touch of a fingertip. Morticia would also ask visitors if they minded if she smoked.  She would then cross her arms and literally start to smoke with smoke coming out in curls of smoke from her body.
  • Gomez was athletic.  His cigar would light the instant he drew it out of his breast pocket and extinguished when he put it back.  Gomez could also perform mathematical calculations in his head.
  • Fester generated electricity and could power a lightbulb in his mouth as a party trick.  He liked to ‘recharge’ in his electric chair.  And do you remember Fester suffering from migraines?  Do you remember the cure?  The cure was clamping his head in a vise.
  • Grandmama could whip up potions of varying effects and could fly on a broom.
  • Pugsley was always seen as being able to survive any mortal injuries including his sister’s regular attempts to kill him.
  • Wednesday was also able to survive any mortal injuries inflicted upon her by Pugsley.  She was also strong enough to bring her father down with a judo hold.
  • Lurch had Frankenstein strength.
  • Thing could travel from box to box.

TRIVIA TIME MY FRIENDS –  (Don’t cheat.  The asnwers are at the bottom of this page – have fun 🙂

  1. In the movie Adams Family Values, Morticia and Gomez have a third child, a little boy.  What was his name?
  2. What was the one thing that Gomez liked blowing up?
  3. What was Wednesday’s favorite toy named?  You know, the one that Pugsley cut the head off of.
  4. What was the address to The Addams Family home?
  5. What is the name of Morticia’s African Strangler man eating plant?

31 Days of Spook – The Adams Family

 I hope you have been enjoying my 31 Days of Spook.  Not too scary for you… I hope.  Today I want to go down a road that happens to be another one of my mom and dad’s favorite.  The Addams Family.  I know you want to do it.  I won’t tell.  Go ahead and snap those fingers my friends while you can.  Don’t be scared.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

For Bacon’s Show and Tell for March we are focusing on another great toy you had from childhood.  Mom and dad both had this toy.  They played with it for hours – you could mess things up, redo the picture, write stuff and draw beautiful pictures… if you were talented – snorts.  What was this awesome toy you are asking.

 An Etch-A-Sketch.  Do you remember them now?  Oh my pigs.  Mommy got a dreamy look on her face as she reminisced about her memories.  One of her favorite things was going line by line only moving inches at a time to the left to make the entire screen blacked out.  What a thrill that was when you couldn’t see any part of the screen – snorts – mom was so easily amused for sure.  She said that hers got broken because one of her brothers stepped on the glass part.  Another toy that had a brief life expectancy but was fun while she had it.

Dad remembers playing with his as well.  He had more talent… I guess you could call it that… and he would draw on his.  Now, I’m not saying that you would recognize the pictures – snorts – but he would attempt at it.  And then write messages on it and erase them to keep them secret.  He doesn’t remember what happened to his childhood inspiration.  It’s probably a good thing.

Can’t wait to visit other blogs and see what they had as one of their cherished toys from childhood.  Hope you had fun this month my friends!
