Journey with Friends

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


 Hello my sweet friends!  How was your week last week?  I’m thinking in the past couple of weeks, I need a pat on the back.  Why do you ask?  Let me tell you some facts 🙂  The first week I started, I walked 10.41 miles total.  I was encouraged.  Last week, I only walked 7.95 miles due to my pain levels being really high from my rheumatoid arthritis and my hip woohoo-jumping-smiley-emoticonbursitis. But although I was in pain, I ate clean.  So eating clean and moving more, drum roll please, I weighed Saturday.  And guess what?  Are you sitting down?  I’m down 16 pounds since we got back from vacation.  Now that to me is amazing.  That weight loss is from 3 weeks and it’s a high number but I usually start off that way and then narrow down every week.  I’m *beyond* excited.  Tomorrow I go for my yearly insurance biometrics so that will also give me some panel blood numbers to go by when I get my blood work done again in three months.

So I’m excited.  How did you do my friends?

Miles Walked Since 06/13/2016:  18.36 miles

What? Really? No Way!

For Bashful’s birthday on Friday, mom/dad took him out to a local restaurant that has really awesome southern food.  He said that he was in desperate need for great food.

I tell you – in some ways that rock eats better than I do here.

In this picture, you can see that he ordered beef tips over rice, macaroni and cheese and sweet potato souffle.  Talk about southern comfort food huh?  Bashful said it was totally delicious and that he even licked his plate clean.  That’s my boy!

When Bashful came home, me and him had a heart to heart about some of his travels and his plans for the future.  That’s when he told me something that I couldn’t believe.  I think I actually fell over because it was totally unbelievable.  He told me a secret that I was shocked – astonished – I couldn’t fathom it to be true.  So I did what any piggy would do.  I ran to my mommy.

Mommy!  Bashful told me X-Y-Z.  Is it true?  My mom got this silly grin on her face and said, “It could be.”  WHAT?  I tell you I cried.  I literally cried like a little baby – look at this picture!

What the piggy heavens?  My friends.  You are so NOT going to believe this secret.  I’m dying to tell you but I can’t.  But Oh My Piggy Heavens.  You will absolutely WET yourself when you find out what it is.  Shaking my piggy head.  It’s like a dream come true.

So until I can tell you, you will just have to sit and simmer and hope that I don’t spontaneous combust from excitement.

Dear Bacon

img_5513

Dear Bacon  – So I need advice. My mommy and daddy work a lot and I am at home alone. It gets boring sometimes and lonely i just want to be with mommy. What should I do while mommy is at work.  This is my mommy in the picture – isn’t she beautiful?  Signed Icess

 Dear Icess – AAWW she is beautiful just like you my sweet friend!  You know just a couple of thoughts your way.  One is that your mom can leave her sleep top for you to snuggle on throughout the day.  That way you can ‘smell’ mom and feel comforted.  Second is television.  I love my television.  I keep it on all of the time watching the Animal Planet.  That would give you a lot of company as well.  And you can redecorate the living room.  I’ve seen Houdini here do that to the pillows on our couch.  Just don’t destroy them like Houdini has done – that’s another post for another time – snorts.  I hope this helps my sweet friend.  Hogs and snout kisses.


  Dear Bacon – Sometimes one just needs to stretch out with the sun rays on their body and take a siesta.  It doesn’t matter where you are – when it hits – IT HITS.  Signed Felix.

Dear Felix – You are so very right my friend.  When it hits, it does hit.  I’ve been there as well as other anipals here on the blog.  Another great place to fall asleep is on your human.  Do you know they will not move until you wake up?  Now to me, that’s deep love!


  Dear Bacon – Sometimes the only place you can find quiet in the entire home is the bathroom.  Isn’t that where the humans go for their quiet time?  I know they can be in there for what seems like hours.  Sometimes I hear mom asking my dad is he taking up residency in there.  So with that in mind, I thought I would try it out for a nap.  You know what?  It was awesome!  Nobody bothered me for almost an hour.  Talk about a power nap.  Where’s your favorite place to nap?  Signed Sinkpus

Dear Sinkpus – Oh my piggy heavens!  I’m so going to have to remember this.  I don’t think I could make it up to the sink but behind the pedestal sink would be ideal.  No one would ever think to look for me there.  Thanks my friend for the ideal – Happy Sleeps


Dear Bacon – What?  There’s nothing to see here friend.  Just a dog tucked in to bed for the night.  Doesn’t everyone sleep this way?  Signed Nighty

Dear Nighty – Hey, I have no problems my friend.  I sleep like that all of the time in my toddler friend.  Nope, nothing to see.  Us anipals need to be comfy too in their homes.  Sleep on and sweet dreams of running through fields of flowers 🙂


Dear Bacon –  Here I am – Here I am – Throw the Ball.  I’m just trying to show Cam Newton how to couch the football – meows with evil laughter.  You know how to have fun with the game and be a good loser.  I’m not sure if he knows what that is all about.    Signed Fig

Dear Fig – There are so many places I could go with this but I won’t.  I will be nice and kind.  And if Mr. Newton is reading this – please take notes.  One needs to use the help of others, be nice and have fun with the game.  AND always remember, even if you lose a game – be the bigger person and take notes for what to do better next time.  Don’t sulk and have temper tantrums.  I’m just sayin’.


 Dear Bacon – I tried.  I really did.  I ate and then I couldn’t move anymore.  See, I’m just a little puppy.  I play hard.  I eat hard.  And I also sleep hard.  Hold me.  Signed Tuck

Dear Tuck – Oh my little friend.  Squeals with cuteness overload.  Sometimes you just can’t take anymore.  I know.  I’ve been known to do that as well.  And also Houdini – rolls piggy eyes.  That little guy also does the same all.of.the.time.  You were tuckered out Tuck.  Your tummy was nice and warm and full.  I just want to pet it looking at your picture.  All you needed was for your mommy to come pick you up and rock you while you sleep.  Don’t worry – you will grow out of this.  Take care Tuck.


REMEMBER MY FRIENDS – Dear Bacon can not happen without YOU.  Please keep sending me your pictures and letters to my email.

Heads Up My Friends – Mark Your Calendars

I am squealing with delight.  Really I am my friends.  If you could see me right now, you would see the biggest grin on my little piggy face.  In fact, I don’t know which one of us is more excited – me or mom.

My brother Easy gave me this award last Monday (06/09/2014).  SQUEAL!  You know awards make a happy piggy dancing all over the place here at the Hotel Thompson.  I ❤ awards almost as much as I ❤ food!  They are so exciting to this little oinker.

Easy  gave me the Liebster Award – awesomesauce!  Here are the rules for the award:

4 – Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.  See below – so much fun!

Questions for me to Answer:

  1. What was the weirdest thingy you ever ate?  Kumquats.  They are DISGUSTING.  They are sweet and sour at the same time.  I ate one.  One of my ears went in one direction and the other ear went in the opposite direction.  Eeeww
  2. Have you ever slept in a Howl-tel?  Not yet.  But I might get to soon 🙂
  3. Do you have a favorite show in television you could watch forever and ever and ever and ever? I love Green Acres and Gilligan’s Island.  I am constantly watching these two shows on my television in my bedroom.

The *Best* Sign I’ve Seen for Spring

 OMP (oh my pig!)  This is too funny.  I’m hoping that sprinter (combination of spring and winter) is almost over.  I saw this sign and couldn’t resist.  I squealed and rolling around laughing so much that mom thought I was having a seizure.  Daddy was ready to call 911 and tell them that we had a piggy down here at the Hotel Thompson.  Aren’t they just too funny – snorts.

So, are ya’ll so excited that you can wet your plants?  PLOL (piggy laughing out loud). 20140330-184003.jpg
