31 Days of Spook – My Breakfast

Well, I’ve started my morning off the right way.  I put  my cartoon DVD in and set the timer to come on this morning to wake me up.  Mom even got me some of my favorite seasonal cereals.  Today is spook blast from the past.  Let me introduce you to some new friends the I’ve met:20131006-165208.jpg

Count Chocula

Frute Brute

Fruity Yummy Mummy

Boo Berry


Do you know these guys too?  Mommy says they only come out during this time of the year in October.  Mommy got all four for me to try.  I have to admit that daddy did some encouraging as well.  He told mommy they were for ‘educational’ purposes for me.  Way to go dad!  Don’t forget to try some before they disappear!

Blast from the Past

WOW – mom got all sentimental on this toy from her childhood.  The Little Professor was released in June 1976 from Texas Instruments.  It was marketed as the first electronic educational toy.  I think this is where mom found her fondness of math and to these day loves numbers.  So many people hate math but it’s really in the way it is presented.  I think by having fun with the Little Professor, mom started off with a fondness of math.   She got that far away look in her eyes and reminisced about being 7 and walking around the house ‘calculating’.  She got pretty good at it too!

I checked this item out on ebay as well.  It runs from around $25.00 and up.  Not a good turn around knowing that when it first came out in 1976, the price was $20.00.

Daddy never had one growing up – maybe that explains his dislike for math.  I wonder if it’s too late for this little piggy to start using it?

Did you have a Little Professor?  Do tell.

Happy Friday and Such –

Another Friday is upon us – we all survived another long week!

I plan on hanging out at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m trying to enjoy every minute with mommy that I can in the next couple of weeks before they go on vacation.  Saturday is me and mom bonding day.  We might even try to go in the back yard and play in the leaves.  It’s a possibility.  Mommy says it’s fun.  I’m not so sure at this point.  I’ll keep you posted on my findings.

Sunday I think mom and dad are having date night – eeww. I still don’t get ‘date’ night.  Don’t they see enough of each other during the week?

Do ya’ll have anything planned?


I wanted to share something with you that me and daddy saw on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” earlier in the week.  I was totally in awe and fascinated – so was daddy.

The question came up <<look to the left>> that asked the following:

High concentrations of the mineral olivine are what make the sand at Hawaii’s Papakolea Beach uniquely what color.

Me and dad looked at each other and automatically said it at the same time.  Okay – maybe he said it and I oinked it – GREEN.  And you are probably saying you’re such a smart piggy.  Well, let me remind you of something.  Earlier in the month of September, I did a posting on Papakolea Beach.  You can see it at

That is how we knew the answer!  So what does this tell you?  Reading my blog can make you smarter!  Who would have thought that, huh?


So, share with your friends.  You never know what you might learn from my blog page.

It could be anything and everything my friends!

Happy weekend – have fun!
