We would like to say that ours was but last Friday, our refrigerator decided that it was done. Tired. No longer wanted to exercise. Daddy got a drink out of the fridge Friday morning, went to drink it and it was hot. That’s when he decided to touch everything in the fridge and everything was hot. So dad called mom who was on the way to the worky place with the great news. You just know that made mom’s Friday morning.
So she checks in with work and then takes a couple of hours of emergency leave to come home. Once home, mom checks out the fridge and concurs – it’s not working. Now mom tells dad that the fridge they had was huge for two people. So they decide rather than fixing it because of it’s age, they go price a new one because the repair wasn’t going to come cheap for the old one.
So my friends, let me introduce you to our new fridge. A stainless steel Whirlpool. It fits better in the kitchen and mom says it actually holds more than the old one. I think it’s fantastic. More room means more groceries for me. And doesn’t it look better? Now mom/dad just have to remember that the fridge is on the bottom and the freezer is on the top. It was the opposite on the old one. And yep, dad has already hit his head several times going into the fridge. Snorts with piggy laughter. Good thing he has a hard head.

Snorts! By the time you read this my friends, I will have left the building… AKA Hotel Thompson. We have a surprise coming here to the Hotel Thompson… or should I say someone coming here – snorts with piggy laughter. I’m keeping my snout shut though and not saying a word about who it might be.
And this time of the year makes me ill. You might have heard that from me before. And I do have something to say. After this picture was snapped, I might have snapped myself at daddy and bit him. Don’t worry – it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t the first time in the past couple of weeks. (This picture was taken last week). I’ve had a few aggression problems lately with this weather – some days cool and some days hot. So mom called my friends that I went to the camp with last year and they have suggested me come and visit them for about a week. Which is really good since mom/dad have friends coming anyway – that way they can play with them more and I can take some time to run with fellow anipals. Make sense huh?
But don’t worry. Everything will work out – I’m sure of it. And I’m taking my laptop with me so I can check in and still have fun my friends. Think about me okay. Love you guys. ❤ XOXO – Bacon

Hemi and Mouse Girl here – you know us – the purr things from the Hotel Thompson. We have tied up the little oinker, thrown him in the closet and are now standing against the door so he can’t come out and catch us on his laptop. Evil meows – okay maybe some of that is not true. But we are on his laptop – 🙂 I mean would *we* hurt that oinker? Nah. Okay maybe slap his butt a couple of times but who’s counting?
This morning me and Mouse Girl were talking and we realized we haven’t pushed our humans around lately. You know what I’m talking about my kitty friends. You know – letting the humans know who really is in charge and it’s not that oinker like he wants everyone to believe. So we came up with a game plan and I was up first. Meow – tighten your seat belts my humans it’s going to be a bumpy morning – purr.
So every morning, mom gets up to get ready for work. I follow her around the Hotel Thompson. What? It’s what I do. That pig can’t have all of the fun with mom. But this morning before she even got OUT of bed, my plan was put into action. I kept getting on mom’s night stand which drives her CRAZY in like 5 seconds flat. Then I changed channels by hitting the remote when the television came on for the news. Then I kept jumping off of mom wanting her to play with me. What? These things were
to piss mommy off to the high heavens just to get a little snuggle time with my mom. Then you know how us kitties like to ‘mark’ things by rubbing up against them? I mean hey we gotta keep doing this because they’re two cats here and everything is mine – sorry Mouse Girl. Mom got on to me because I kept knocking everything off of her vanity. What? You shouldn’t put pretty, shiny small things on there to get my attention. I’m just sayin’. I got done with my careful plan of taking over the Hotel Thompson and tag teamed my partner, Mouse Girl.
Mouse Girl’s plan was to get daddy. She’s good. She has that man wrapped around her paws. Dad gets up and wonders down the hallway like a bear coming out of hibernation. Mouse Girl does what she does best. She weaves in and out of his legs. For a big girl (no offense MG), she’s got some moves. She almost makes dad trip. Then after mom leaves to go to the worky place, dad gets his breakfast together and puts it on the tray in the living room to watch morning television. He goes back into the kitchen to get a drink and Mouse Girl strikes. She jumps like a little ninja onto his tray and starts nibbling at his Cheerios. Score one for the girl. Daddy fusses and gets her down.
Then plan C goes into action. Me and Mouse Girl ‘fight’. We bring out the ninja skills and act like we are killing each other. Of course this is right beside where daddy is trying to have his civilized breakfast. Of course, daddy blows a gasket. Score for the kitties!
Daddy says he can’t take it anymore so he’s going to workout on the treadmill to let out steam. HA PURR! Shake your tails. We did it. Mission accomplished. Daddy goes into the work out room and hits the treadmill. Poor guy.
Afterwards he comes out to find us. Then he fusses. Why? Because we look so innocent – and we are. Really. Sometimes you just have to show the humans who the kitty is 🙂 And nope. Sometimes it’s NOT that pig here at the Hotel Thompson. Of course daddy did rat us out too. He called mom at the worky place and told her about everything. Down side. Bummer.
So purr things UNITE – what have you done lately to show your humans who are in charge?

I know it seems hard to believe but sometimes during the day I text mom while she’s at the worky place. It’s really easy to do. I have everything set up on my laptop and on dad’s iPad – thank goodness for modern technology huh? I thought from time to time, I would share our insightful texts. Take for instance this one that we did this morning. My texts are in blue and mom’s are in gray. Perhaps you can pick up me and mom’s great sense of humor in these? Snorts – take care my friends and have a great day!

Yesterday on Labor Day, mom proclaimed it a no electronic gadget kind of day. That meant no iPhones, no IPads, no laptops and no computers. We actually had to converse with each other face to face.
Have you tried to live life without any of those glorious gadgets for one day?! It’s the pits! We couldn’t check the television guide because it’s on mom’s iPhone. She allowed me 15 minutes to post my Happy Labor Day post yesterday and that was it. I was cut off after that. I couldn’t talk to any of my cyber friends. Do you know how hard that was?! I was shaking with withdrawals by noon. And poor daddy. He couldn’t play any of his Angry Bird games on the iPad. It was not good. We were all wanting to reach out for these devices. Even the purr things with whatever they have been up to lately were wanting to get on the laptop. They couldn’t and they were complaining big time to mom but she wouldn’t cave.
At 1:00pm, mom went into the kitchen and started pulling things out of the big ice box. I followed her because well you know there wasn’t anything else to do. The next thing you knew, dad was in there too. Mommy said we were going to cook out as in the great outdoors in my magical backyard. What?! Go outside and eat… with nature? Mom, you’re taking this way too far!
So we all went outside in my magical backyard. Mom and dad worked with the grill and after a while some amazing smells starting happening. I walked around the back yard – my hooves even touched the grass and it was okay. Okay because the grass had just been cut. Even mom’s hooves were touching the grass when she was playing with me. It was kind of… cool. And you know what? It was kind of fun rooting around with my snout. Let’s not go crazy and say I want to do it everyday but it was kind of fun. It wasn’t too hot and it smelled good out in nature…. of course the smell coming from the grill helped a lot. We all even ate on the deck. That’s right. I said all. Mom and dad were slipping me bites here/there of chips and little pieces of steak. I even had some potato salad. Afterwards, me and mom played tag in the yard. I would chase her and then she would chase me. She said that she needed the exercise after eating.
After a withdrawal kind of morning from electronics, the day didn’t end all too bad. We actually had a wonderful time together face to face without gadgets and emails or texts. I would highly recommend it every once in a while – just don’t tell mom I said that. I can’t let her know she’s right all of the time, right?
But there was ONE down side to being off of the computer yesterday. I missed a very important date – my friend Easy had a birthday and turned four! How many times do you turn four and I missed it? I know mom turns 30 every year but it just seems different with us anipals you know. So Easy, I hope you can forgive this little oinker and his blunder. This is from the deepest parts of my piggy heart – HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY FRIEND!
And please friends – go tell Easy over at http://easyweimaraner.wordpress.com/ happy birthday.

Bashful – the rolling stone!
Hello my friends! Today’s posting will conclude my fun adventure that I had at Wally World, otherwise known as Wal-Mart. I hope I have expressed how much fun it was! I do hope that you have had a good laugh at my field trip and my experiences. But don’t worry, although my adventure with Wally World… AKA Fun Land USA… is over, my field trips are not done. I am going out more to explore and will post about those trips soon.
Today, we concentrate on education. I really tried hard to broaden my knowledge while at Fun Land USA.
I started first in the book section. Those Dr Seus books are wonderful! Did you know that daddy can almost recite the entire book of Green Eggs and Ham by heart? He loves that one just about as much as I do. You can see me in this picture next to the books reading. I stayed there for as long as mom/dad would let me. They were looking at their books and I was looking at my age appropriate books. It was all good.
Then we moved on to exciting and wondrous things… the electronic department! I was trying so very hard to get mom/dad to buy me my very own iPad. They said I was too young and had to share with Bacon still. Stomps pebbles – but I wanna my own iPad. Darn it all. I love playing on Bacon’s. It’s a lot easier to type, if you know what I mean. Maybe one day when I become a policerock and make my own money, I can get one.
With all of this shopping, I got hungry. I might have strayed off by myself. Mom/dad got scared because they couldn’t find me. They said next time, I have to wear my leash – darn shucks.
I’m not sure why they were so scared, they did eventually find me. I was in the frozen food section licking the strawberry pie box. Tasty – 🙂 Now I know why Bacon loves strawberries. Of course, I tasted it so mom/dad had to buy the pie. They weren’t fussing too much cause they said they were hungry too. It was delicious!
Well, that’s it for today’s field trip. I hope you enjoyed it my friends!
Toodles – Bashful

Now, understand that my mom has a really drawn out southern accent. I had to do several double takes when she said, “Possible Beach Time”. I thought I was going to have to make her put several quarters in the swear jar. That is until dad said it. It was a close call for this little pig. I thought she had finally went over that fine line of insanity… which she says is a close line – snort oink.
I think it would absolutely be a wonderful thing to dip these hooves into the ocean waters and walk on the sand. There’s just one problem though. I don’t do nature. eeww – there’s no telling what little creatures would be hiding out at the beach – like seaweed, stingy fish and fish for that matter.
Seriously, I would not mind the destressing of being a beach pig, lying in the sun and playing in the water. That could be fun – minus nature. Heck that would be a hoot. You know…. the original bacon in the sun. Then again if I got too hot, we could have a problem Houston. Everyone would come searching the bacon smell and I could be in trouble.
But just think of the beautiful sand castles that me, mom/dad could make at the beach. My snout is a wicked tool and I could help. You know, come up with some art like this –
Me + Beach = NOT happening. So we need to start thinking of who is going to watch this little, sweet, precious, snuggble piggy in October when mom/dad go on vacation. Any takers – snort. I don’t require much. Heck, I practically take care of myself. I just require a few things:
- Laptop or iPad
- Unlimited access to the magical kingdom called a kitchen
- My own bathroom facilities
- Snuggy time
- Toddler bed
- Nightly turn down service with a bedtime story
- Room service
- Maid to clean said room
- Massage therapy
See, it’s not much. Any takers? XOXO – Bacon
