Dear Bacon,
Little dude, you are a hoot.  I read your blog all of the time.  I mean, up here in the cold – what else is there to do?  All of my buddies come over at least once a week so we can read your page together.  You are so funny little man.  You should go on the road.  What do you think?  We’ll buy tickets!  Signed SoSealFunny

Dear SoSealFunny,

Thanks my friend.  I appreciate those kind words.  Everyone here at the Hotel Thompson has a tendency not to take life too serious – just go with it and have some fun.  It makes life so much more interesting!  I’ll let you know about any future road dates. 🙂

20130601-000735.jpg
Dear Bacon,
You really should overcome your anti-nature fears.  It’s great out outside!  Look at this great picture that my older brother took of me on the beach.  You gotta come here and put your hooves in the sand.  Once you do, you’ll never go back!   I’ll save a beach chair for you – come on down!  Signed Chillin Tiny

Dear Chillin Tiny,

I will keep that in mind my friend.  You do look so very comfortable and that picture really pulls at some heart strings.  I’ve seen pictures from mom of the beach as well.  They make me almost want to rethink my anti-nature policies.  I am working on it.  When I make that leap of faith, I’ll be sure to let you know.  Don’t be surprised if you get a call from me somewhere in the near future my friend!  Thanks for the invite.

20130601-000744.jpg
Dear Bacon,
Oh little man – purr – come on down to the desert and play with me.  I’m just like one of your purr things there at the Hotel Thompson.  I can help you get over your outdoor phobias.  Trust me, I can.  Growl – Signed Playful

Dear Playful,

For some reason, I just don’t get the same love and desire of you wanting to help me like my friend Chillin Tiny. As you said, you are like the purr things here.  With that in mind, I’m thinking your parting words of ‘trust me’ would be like something Hemi would say here before he swats me on my piggy fanny.  But, I appreciate the invite.  I think I’ll stay in the south and continue to be a member of the Hotel Thompson.  Take care of yourself my friend.  Be sure to use sunscreen.

20130601-000813.jpg
Dear Bacon,
I bet you had to look twice at this picture, didn’t you or did you?  This thing called Photoshop is amazing.  I could even Photoshop you in my pouch.  Wouldn’t that be fun?  I could take you everywhere!  Signed Hop n’ Fun

Dear Hop n’ Fun,

PLOL (Pig Laughing Out Loud).  That does look like so much fun!  Perhaps I do need to come see you in real life so we can have so much fun down under!

20130601-000845.jpgDear Bacon,

Since all of the Harry Potter movies are done and over with, I have a lot of time on my wings these days.  Most days now, you can find me skateboarding along the boardwalk.  Watch out Tony Hawk – I’m coming for you with some of my tricks.  Signed Hedwig

Dear Hedwig,

I was just wondering what you were up to these days.  I just watched a couple of the Harry Potter movies last weekend.  You’re looking good.  They must be right about the camera adding 10 pounds plus because you look a lot smaller in this picture!  Be safe my friend.

 

Thanks my friends for submitting your pictures and questions.  Keep them coming!  Send your questions and pictures to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com

Wacky Wednesday

Yay – hump day is here! I can almost see me sleeping on the weekend. Oh, that’s my bad – I see my friend Tiny the elephant sleeping 🙂 PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

Do you remember that old show called Name that Tune? Me and mom/dad are working on a new game show that we are going to feature here on my blog sometime soon in the very near future. It’s going to be hilariously fun!! Start brushing up on your commercials now my friends. Snorts – as my friend Speedy says at http://www.speedyhousebunny.com/ , sometimes I have way too much time on my hooves 🙂

Dear Bacon,

Sometimes life is so overwhelming that I just don’t know what to do.  It’s so stressful.  I just have to sit down and it weighs on my shoulders.  Any tips for me?  Signed Heavy Thoughts

Dear Heavy Thoughts,

If any of my friends have taught me anything it’s that sometimes we have to stop and smell the roses.  Life is not as bad as what you think.  Think of the positive things in life and how much you have going for you.  It seems like you’re overlooking the ocean in your picture.  That in itself can be very relaxing and have a calming effect on oneself.  And you know a good chuckle solves a lot of problems.  You can never take yourself too serious.  Focus on those thoughts for a while my friend and keep your trunk up.  You have a lot to bring to the party!  

 

20130428-203232.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Hee-hee I’m eating your strawberry.  How you like that?  HA HA Signed Tortoise

Dear Tortoise,

What’s that?  I couldn’t hear you through eating through this basket of strawberries that my mom got me.  That’s right – I said basket.  Hope you enjoy your ONE strawberry my friend.  Snort – Love you!

 

20130428-203242.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Mommy said that if I eat my vegetables I will grow up to be strong just like you.  Is she right?  Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny,

Your mom is 100% correct.  Eating vegetables make you strong.  Now eat up that corn and broccoli I see and become a member of the clean plate club.  Make mommy proud and grow up to be nice and strong!

 

20130428-203257.jpg

Dear Bacon,

Sometimes it takes a friends to help you out in meeting that future Mrs. Right.  I saw this gorgeous lady and had to get her attention some how that she would remember me.  I got my bro to help me out with an outstretched arm.  What do you think – did I make an impression to last?  Signed Romeo

Dear Romeo,

I gave this picture and letter the test and showed it to mom.  She got all teary eyed – you passed with flying colors.  She said that it was the sweetest thing she has seen in a while.  You should have made a huge impression on your lady friend.  Give her a call and ask her out for brunch now to get to know her.  If ya’ll get engaged, drop us a line to let us know.

 

20130428-203322.jpgDear Bacon,

Yep, it’s me the Hemi… your purr thing at the Hotel Thompson.  I know you talk about me and the paw that hits your hiney at times.  I thought I would show your friends the size of my hand.  Maybe then they will understand why you cry like a little girl when I do it.  Meow – Master Hemi

Dear Master Hemi,

Stay away from my computer and room.  After my loyal followers see the size of that paw, they will then know what a little bully you are – snort.

Happy Tuesday – Guaranteed to Make You Chuckle

Happy Tuesday my friends.  Sometimes we just need a little something extra to make us laugh, to put an extra step in our giddy up, you know just something to amuse us to make us chuckle.  I have looked far and wide and found something that is guaranteed to make you smile.

I looked all over the internet in search for the one thing that you would look at and just burst out in automatic laughter.  I think I found it.  I showed it to dad – he almost fell off the couch.  That was a good sign on the amusement scale.  I showed it to mom.  She was putting on make up and let’s just say the eye liner didn’t all go on her eyes because she was laughing so hard.  I showed it to the purr things.  Even *they* laughed hysterically! 

So my friends, here is the test.  Here is my pal that can be rented out at parties.  He is guaranteed to make you laugh.  Please get out your singles and have them ready for the entertainment.  May I present to you – Stripper Tiny!

Yeah – PLOL – I Used To Do This

20130409-084331.jpg

 

Did you know that when baby elephants have a ‘fit’ and don’t get their way,  they throw themselves into mud like this little guy and have a ‘temper tantrum’?  Did you know that?

When I was little – which seems like worlds ago – I used to do the same thing.  Mom used to call me her little baby elephant.  If I didn’t get my way, I would throw myself on a pillow on the floor with my butt in the air like that.  It doesn’t work much these days.  Mom just tells me to let her know when I’m finished.  My mom – she’s a tough one like that. 

Mom actually has this picture hanging on the refrigerator to remind me that this is how not to act to get something.  I thought I would share it with you.

Dear Bacon,

See there’s this place called the GYM that humans and animals work out at all of the time.  You should find it.  You’re starting to look a little porky – bark – ha.  Signed  Stud Muffin

Dear Mutt Stud,

You want to go there huh? This exquisite body is 45 pounds of lean shapely pig.  I’m called a pot bellied pig for a reason.  It takes a lot of work to maintain this exquisite physique.  You should only inspire to have this high performance body one day my friend.  That is all.

**************************************************************************************************************************

20130124-091858.jpg

Dear Bacon,

I do not know why you insist on calling those bubbly things in water a spa adventure.  They are not and I will not abide.  You and the humans can not make me.  I will not partake in that watery death sentence.  Signed Cornered

Dear Cornered,

WOW – I commend you on the nose in the corner situation.  Is it really all that bad?  I would think that you for one would love to play with the bubbles.  I know the purr things here do when mom is in bubble land.  Did you even stick a paw in the suds? 

**************************************************************************************************************************

20130124-091922.jpgDear Bacon,

I’ve heard in your Netflix que you have a lot of ghost and life after death shows.  HA – I think I’m right up your alley little man.  Any time you want to take the challenge, you just let me know.  I think I can accommodate you.  Signed Precious

Dear Precious,

Who you been talking to about my private Netflix account?  I’m good.  Really I am.  I do find it intriguing but not so much to take a challenge physically to find out.  I thank you very much though for the offer.  It was awfully nice of you and I appreciate the thoughts.  You just take it easy and try not hurt yourself okay.  Thanks anyhow!

 

**************************************************************************************************************************

20130124-091844.jpgDear Bacon,

Sing with me little oinker –

You put your right foot in,
You put your right foot out,
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey Pokey
And you turn yourself around,
That’s what it’s all about.

Signed Dancing and Singing Elephant

Dear DAS Elephant,

I absolutely loved it and needed that snort.  Thanks so much my friend.  Keep up the fabulous work!

**************************************************************************************************************************

20130124-091908.jpgDear Bacon,

I’m not sure if you and your mom have ever played Hide N Seek but it’s a great game.  I’m the winner of the 2012 Best in Camoflauge.  Can you imagine how I won here in this picture?  Sometimes the humans even forget I’m in the room.  Signed Invisible

Dear Invisible,

OMP (Oh my pig!)  That is outrageous and over the top.  You go you little Houdini.  I’m going to have practice up on my skills and see if I can one day live up to your standards.  Totally awesome!

Dear Bacon –

20121120-062013.jpg
Dear Bacon,
Spiders eeww.  Nobody likes them man.  I’m sorry little dude.  I saw one on the floor.  It was huge.  There was no other place to go.  The evil thing was in the doorway threatening my manhood.  I jumped on the first thing I could to get away from it.  Sink be it.  This is how my master found me.  This doesn’t make me less of a dog does it?  My fear of spiders?  Signed Sweetness

Dear Sweetness,

Well, it might take you down a couple of notches.  You’re name my take you down a few more.  You are my fellow friend are a dog.  A big dog at that.  You could have easily walked over that little spider and saved you some grace.  Unless that spider is as big as you, you are the bigger person.  Start dogging up.

Dear Bacon,
Hey dude.  I read your blog all of the time.  I see people talking about yoga and I’ve seen some of the positions.  I gotta lot of stress in my life.  I thought I would try it.  WOW – it works great!  This is my zen trunk position.  It took me a long time to get the balancing together but it’s great now.  Have you tried it yet??  Signed Stingphant

Dear Stingphant,

That’s amazing!  I’m going to have to try some of these positions in my room when no one is looking, especially that Hemi.  It helps out in stress huh?  I really don’t have that much stress but I think over the holidays I’m going to try it.  I’ll keep you posted.

Dear Bacon,
Who says zebras can’t be fast?  I’m tired of being the underzebra in the bush getting chased all of the time. I bought me a bike and it is the bomb!  Those pesky little cats can’t catch me anymore.  Whatcha think?  Signed Einstein

Dear Einstein,

I’m amazed!  First of all, you have the talent to ride a bike.  Second of all, I would have never thought about doing that to escape the cat.  But I do have a question.  How are you going to feel that thing up with gas when it runs out?  Just a thought to think about.  Stay safe my striped friend!

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

20121120-062701.jpg

Dear Bacon,
I love the water.  I just can’t get enough of it.  My favorite sport is water skiing.  Everyone said that due to my size that I would never be able to participate.  Well, I proofed them wrong.  Don’t let anyone say that you can’t do something.  You can.  Signed Geoffrey

Dear Geoffrey,

I’ve got to admit that if you can do that, I can do some of the things that I want to do in my life.  There’s nothing that can hold us back.  Thank you so much for the inspiration!

————————————————————————————————————————————————-

20121120-062807.jpgOkay pig –

You think *you* have problems with those pesky purr things.  I have problems.  My master has pet mice.  You know where I’m going.  You can’t eat the pets.  But this, this is taking things a little too far and asking me too much.  What am I to do?  Signed Heathcliff

Dear Heathcliff,

WOW – mom does walk around telling me not to eat the cats.  I don’t.  I may tug on their tails a little but it’s all out of love.  But mice hanging around the head.  Oh buddy, there’s got to be a line somewhere and that’s pushing it.  You might need to leave the room when the master has those play things out wondering around.  I can hold back a lot but that – no way!  Be strong!

Dear Bacon

20121009-213252.jpgDear Bacon,

I’ve read on your posts that your parents like to ‘pig tip’ you.  LOL – I thought that was so funny… pig tipping.  Yeah, it was real funny until my parents read it and now they want to ‘elephant tip’.  You think you can have your mom hold back a little on the pig tipping?  It’s giving my parents ideas.  Signed Trunk Up

Dear Trunk Up,

Ouch.  Sorry for that little bro.  I’ll talk to mom and show her your email.  You do look awfully cute like that though.  Love your trunk.  I only have a snout.  If I had a trunk, the possibilties are endless!  HUGS

 

—————————————————————————————————————————————————-

20121009-213337.jpg
Dear Bacon,
My dad is like your mom.  He thinks he needs to take pictures of my every move.  Sometimes when one is sleeping, that is called a private moment for a reason.  Yes, I sleep with my tongue hanging out.  Some humans drool, right?  Do you sleep with your tongue out?  Signed CatNap

Dear CatNap,

AAWW – you are so cute!  I have been known to drool while I sleep.  I also have been told that it looks like I’m smiling when I sleep.  Mom calls me her perfect little angel when I sleep. We all sleep differently.  Don’t worry about it at all. 

 

—————————————————————————————————————————————————–

20121009-213441.jpg

Dear Bacon,
My humans are not so happy with me.  They keep trying to take the dreaded Christmas card picture and well I keep looking like this.  I tell them that this is MY happy face but they don’t get it.  What can I do?  Signed Smiley

Dear Smiley,

Some people just show emotions in different ways.  They need to understand.  So you’re not ‘smiling’ in your picture.  You are so cute in it though.  I just want to squeeze you and eat you up… okay maybe not eat you up but you get the drift.  Maybe you can work on the eyes – don’t look so surprised when the camera is flashing.  Perhaps that would help you out.  HUGS

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

 

20121009-213610.jpgDear Bacon,
I have a favorite toy that I sleep with, my Elmo.  Do you have a favorite toy that you like to cuddle with?  Signed Catelmo

Dear Catelmo,

Yes I do have a favorite toy that I like to cuddle with.  It’s called my mom – snort.  Other than that, I have a favorite blankie.  It’s my king size Egyptian cotton cuddly blankie.  I love that blankie!  I roll around in it, sleep with it, drag it around the house and play on it. 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

 

20121009-213710.jpg
Dear Bacon,
I think I have a problem.  My vision has been getting worse lately.  I can’t see to get around the farm anymore.  I’m afraid that Farmer Dale is going to get rid of me if I keep running into trees.  What am I to do?  Signed Emo

Dear Emo,

Just a thought at first glance… have you thought about a haircut?  You look like one of the Beatles with that haircut now.  I can almost bet you that you will have amazing vision once you get a proper haircut.  Why don’t you ask Farmer Dale to give you a little trim.  Let me know how that works out for you my friend.
