Snorts – as if. Okay so there I was last night playing around on my laptop and I came across this informative piece of information. I read it and then snorted so hard that I fell off of my toddler bed. Let me just say there is NO WAY this little oinker is getting close enough to any slithery long snake of any size to check his eyes out. I’m just saying. What about you my 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!
Another week of maintaining. I’m good with that. Of course I would like to be down – who wouldn’t, right? But baby steps win the game in the long run. I hope LOL.
Things have been trying to get back to normal here at the Hotel Thompson. I think we all finally got to say goodbye to the flu last week. Thank goodness for that. We are all tired of being sick – trust me on that. Now we are fighting the pollen levels. This is one of the great things here on the south – not. Pollen in the spring kills us all. We walk around not being able to breathe, watery eyes, sneezing and wheezing. One day last week, the pollen level hit over 3,700! I didn’t think we would survive the day. Do you fight the pollen in your area? How are y’all doing my friends?
Dear Bacon – Help! Let alone I had to get a bath. Let alone they wrapped me up like a tight burrito so much so that my tongue hung out. Then the human had to take my picture. Really? I can’t even fight it I’m wrapped so tight. Any thoughts on how to handle this fiasco? Signed Burrito in Training
Dear Burrito in Training – Let’s look at this on a positive note. Your humans love you so much that they (1) bathed you; (2) wrapped you up to dry you so you wouldn’t get sick in this awful cold weather and then (3) took a pic of you. Sounds to me like they are working hard towards next years Christmas cards. You can never plan too far in advance my friend. So this is what you do. Wait for them to go to sleep – you know the snoring, tongue hanging out and drooling from the mouth. Then take their picture to replace yours. Simple as that. Snorts.
Dear Bacon – I’m not sure about you but us dogs, we can spell. We know exactly what you are spelling when you say V.E.T. I’m not the kind of dog that runs but you spell V.E.T. and I’m gone like the speed of light. Nobody likes those guys at the V.E.T. office – I don’t care how many treats you get. What say you Bacon? Signed G.O.N.E.
Dear G.O.N.E. – I concur. Nobody likes the peeps at the vet’s office. No way! I mean my goodness they think giving you a treat makes up for the violation they give to your captain’s quarters – I don’t think so. I mean heck, at least you can buy me a Mint Julep or something first – snorts with piggy laughter.
Dear Bacon – This should serve the human for leaving their camera phone on last night. I left them a little something to find on their camera roll. What do you think – do I have it or what? Signed Hot for Hollywood
Dear Hot for Hollywood – Oh absolutely my friend. How could anyone resist that cute little face and tongue? I wish I could be a fly on the wall when your human finds that picture on their camera phone. I bet they laugh and then oohh and aaaww for hours!
Dear Bacon – I don’t get it. I live in the south and every time someone new sees me, they say, “Bless his little heart.” I don’t get it. What does that exactly mean. You live in the south – do you get that often? Signed This is My Happy Face
Dear This is My Happy Face – You see here in the south, that is a term of endearment. Peeps often say that for no apparent reason. I’ve heard peeps tell this to babies, older peeps, anipals and to each other. I don’t think they mean anything by it. Nope not at all. How could they? I look at you and see a masculine little guy that is going somewhere in the world. You just accept that term as a compliment, hold your head up high and march right on into 2016!
Dear Bacon – I was asleep – you know taking one of many naps during the day. I had my little hoodie on for some added heat. My human woke me up and said, “Say Cheese?” All my tummy heard was cheese so I stuck my tongue out. Don’t you know that was the moment my mom decided to snap my pic. Why – tell me why – do these humans do this? Signed Sticking Tongue Out
Dear Sticking Tongue Out – Personally I think sometimes the humans try to catch us off guard in an attempt to get an amusing look from us for their cameras. Every once in a while, I let mom *think* she has me and I do something for her amusement. What can I say? It keeps the humans happy therefore we get more treats. I say play it for all its worth my friend. Work it!
Remember my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to email me your letters and pictures ❤
You know my dad has issues. I’ll be the first to admit that to you. He is special. Mommy says it all of the time… that and he is a treasure – snorts. One of his favorite things to do is shop. I know – for a man that is hilarious because mommy hates.to.shop. She would rather do it on line than to go into a store – shakes piggy head. There is no hope for her.
But sometimes on the weekends, mom does like to go to our local pet store. Sometimes she brings me and sometimes she brings the little pooch Houdini. This past weekend was Houdini’s turn.
Now this is where mom made her first mistake. She told daddy to find Houdini a bone. Now Houdini is 5.5-6 pounds. Daddy came back with a bone and said, “What about this one?” Can you visualize mommy rolling her eyes at daddy with this picture? I know I could! Really daddy? That’s T-Rex you have there.
Hey my friends. I hope everyone had a wonderful LONG holiday weekend. I know we did here at the Hotel Thompson. Mommy was home the entire time and we ate, slept and played together all day some days. It was great! We were all so sorry to see mommy going off to the worky place this morning.
But something happened on Thanksgiving day that I have to tell you about. We were all up watching the Macy’s Day Parade on television which is a yearly tradition with us. The parade is going down with lots of blow up floats, people are singing, bands are playing and then *IT* happened. OMP – I squealed and ran to mommy. We both then looked over at the fireplace to make sure Don Juan was still sitting on top of the fireplace. A float came down the parade – do you see who it is – shakes piggy head. How did “HE” get in the parade? Did you watch the parade? Did you see him?
I tell you my friends. I feel Don Juan’s eyes on me during the day. He doesn’t move – just sits there wherever we find him at in the morning. But his eyes. Those creepy little eyes just seem to watch me walking around the Hotel Thompson. The little freak… shivers.
Hey my friends – today I’m giving you the answers from mom and dad’s new game that I posted about yesterday. Remember, I showed you a picture to guess but did not give you any clues like how many letters or words the answer was. My deviled Ham side came out to play – snorts. The answer are posted below – how many did you get right? Remember these are the game answers and the game’s way of thinking. Should be interesting.
You have to put on your thinking cap and really look at the pictures. By looking at this picture to the left, you see a man, a boat and a tiger. The conclusion: Life of Pi
Does that blow your mind? Now figure out these –
Picture 1 –
By looking at the nail and the manicure, you are suppose to get beauty. The lady has a crown so she is a Queen.
The answer – beauty queen.
Picture 2 –
This one took mom and dad a bit to figure out. The number 10 means perfect in this illustration. The umbrella with the rain means storm.
The answer – Perfect Storm
Picture 3 –
A house – that’s kind of obvious however the tree throws you a bit. The illustration of a woman in a wedding dress means wife.
The answer – housewife
Picture 4 –
Candy is obvious as well as apple.
The answer – Candy Apple
This one is one of the more simple ones. There’s a piggy – yay me – snorts. Then there’s a bag of money.
The answer – Piggy Bank
Picture 6 –
This is one that really blew mom and dad’s mind. It’s deep. You have to really look at the pictures. A snowflake, the sun, the leaves – and then you shake your head in confusion huh?
The answer – Four Seasons
Picture 7 –
Another one that requires a little thinking. There’s a cat, a dog and a horse with a world looking image. What could it be. Oh – now it’s obvious –
The answer – Animal Planet
Picture 8 –
I leave you with another one that your probable got right. A snake and a set of eyes.
The answer – Snake Eyes
Do you know what they say about the grass is always greener on the other side? Or here’s another one – be careful what you wish for? Yeah, I think I stepped four hooves right into this problem. I wanted Spring. Spring is here. The weather is warmer than Winter… there’s a nice breeze outside… the birds are chirping… the grass is green. What could be wrong you ask?
Yep, that six lettered dirty word – POLLEN. In the south, it’s bad. I mean really bad. Today’s forecast:
Total Pollen Count for 4/11/2014: 4054
That’s really high. That means everything is yellow… or like mom calls it pollinated. The itchy, watery eyes. The sneezing. The can’t breathe because your throat is full of pollen. And, you can taste it. Really, you can. Who wants to go outside and roll around in the grass with all of this out there? Perhaps I should have been more specific with Mother Nature about Spring? Daddy has to wear a mask outside when he ventures out. Between us – he kind of looks like a human wearing a snout – snorts. And snouts – I’m not going out in my magical backyard until this pollen goes away. I don’t care how much the unicorn and bigfoot plead for to come play.
Do you have pollen? Are you a sufferer? They say it will last for a couple of weeks until everything ‘blooms’. Until then, welcome to Sprinollen… yep that’s what I’m going to call it.
You voted for it and the two winners were Benedict and Rockelle for their hot date on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014. The day started off with a lot of primping, planning and excitement. Manny and Bashful helped Benedict get ready for the day as Princess Coralena and Virginia helped Rockelle.
The day started off with the exchanging of some gifts. In the picture to the left, Benedict gave Rockelle a special box of chocolates telling her how he feels. Notice, “You Caught My Eye” was written on the box. Nice touch Benedict! In the picture to the right, Rockelle gave Benedict a red hot love ducky because she went quackers for him. Nice touch Rockelle.
Then, it was time for dinner. Mom and dad researched a lot of restaurants that would be unique for the happy couple. Something that touched both of them in
a different way. Something that made them think of their homelands. You know since Rockelle is from Australia and Benedict is
from the United Kingdom. A place maybe they didn’t have from their birth places but something that was unique to the United States. Then the light bulbs went off in their heads and they knew of the perfect place. Reservations were made and mom/dad (AKA the chauffers for the night) then bundled the two up for their romantic dinner.
Yep, that’s right. They went to Hooters on Tara Boulevard. The night started off with some shots in the picture to the left. After a few shots, Benedict and Rockelle loosed up a bit and started talking about their feelings for each other. In the picture to the right, you can tell that there was a magnetic pull to each other. Perhaps love was starting to erupt?
. They did a few shots to loosen up – you know liquid courage. Hooters is a great place that plays a variety of different music. Once they were loosed up, they were rocking to the music. Benedict asked Rockelle to dance. They did the electric rock slide and the pebble shuffle… you know instead of the two step or twerking.
After the shots and all of that dancing, they thought they might need to get something on their stomachs. You know drinking without eating makes one light headed and who knows what would roll around then? They started with some buffalo shrimp. Who needs utensils? It is finger food so they both dived into the plate. Benedict was such a gentleman and actually wiped some sauce off of Rockelle’s face. Of course the proper way would have been by using a napkin instead of using his tongue. But she seemed to like it.
Both liked fish so they decided to order the big fried fish sandwich. It was enough to share. And there is a reason that it’s called the big fish sandwich. Do you see how big that fish is? This was certainly one that didn’t get away and was a keeper. Benedict started on one side and Rockelle started on the other side. They met in the middle. And the little round things are tater tots. It’s often been said that Benedict looks like a potato so it isn’t a shocker that he absolutely loved the tots.
And Hooters, they are known for their wings. Yeah, that’s right. They’re known for their delicious wings. They got some of those to try as well. What’s a great night out if you don’t have lots of food. And they were there for several hours getting to know each other. The wings were fried, breaded and medium – mmmm – Rockelle loved them.
And, of course there is one more thing you have to do when you are at Hooters. I’m not sure if you are familiar with this restaurant. The staff is wonderful, gracious and very out going. They were wonderful to Benedict and Rockelle on their special date night. And since this was their first time at the restaurant, they wanted to give them a memory in a picture. So, they all decided to have their picture taken with the special couple.
After they left Hooters, they didn’t want the date to end. They decided they needed something sweet. And again, Benedict came through. While they were in the back seat, mom/dad overheard Benedict tell Rockelle there was nothing they could get that would be sweeter than her. I think by this point they were holding hands as well.
They decided they wanted ice cream so mom/dad (AKA Chauffers) took them to Baskin Robins where they enjoyed a scoop of snickers ice cream. By this time, they wanted to sit at a separate table from mom/dad so they could talk by themselves. Mom and dad heard a lot of giggles so it seems they were getting along great.
Date night must have went really well because the next morning, Benedict and Rockelle were seen in the kitchen sharing a heart shaped doughnut. This special date night might be the start of something fabulous – maybe even a great relationship like Bogey and McCall. One never knows.
So friends, pat yourselves on the backs for a wonderful twosome.
I would like extend a special thank you to Mike Fiely the manager at Hooters and his wonderful staff located at 6785 Tara Boulevard, Jonesboro. Ya’ll really helped this little piggy out in making this special date night one to remember for my pet rocks. I would say, “You Rock!”
Bashful has *finally* opened his eyes here at the Hotel Thompson and gotten adjusted. This is his first picture with his eyes wide open. He was goofing off on one of my blankets. If you look close, you can see a natural smile. He tells me he is so happy here.
He is looking forward to some adventures here.
If you have any questions for the little guy, send him a message at Baconthompson@gmail.com
I’ll make sure he gets them and responds.
He has a few things coming up in the next couple of weeks. I’m sure the little tyke is going to have a rock of a time!
