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.
You will NOT believe who I scored a story from for this month’s Bacon’s Tales of Terror. Someone famous. Yep I said that – famous. If you follow the paranormal field, you will recognize the name. We are SO EXCITED to share it this Wednesday, January 13, 2016 for my Bacon’s Tales of Terror. You don’t want to miss it either. It is an awesome story – something that happened in real life to our guest. So mark your records now my friends – and don’t worry – I’ll hold your hand 🙂

Welcome my friends to the first day of my 31 Days of Spook! We love this time of year here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s one of my busiest months trying to keep all of you my friends in blogville just at the right amount of teeth chattering, sitting on the edge and being scared of your own shadow. I hope that you stay with me all month and enjoy my 31 Days of Spook. Today, I start off my tales from a special scary story from my brother Easy. What exactly was seen that can not be unseen in the middle of the night? Read the story to find out and be sure to let Easy know your thoughts. Now, lock the doors and shut the windows… you might even want to turn on a light – boo!
It happened many moons ago to the boyfriend of my mommas friend. That boyfriend had a granny who lived in a small village behind the 7 mountains near Nowheresville. Every year in Shocktober, the people there celebrated a kind of a harvest festival, called Kirmes. That year, the guy invited his girlfriend and my momma to visit that fest and his granny agreed to let them stay over night.
They celebrated with the people of the small village and the booze ran like the Niagara Falls. After they were well filled, my mom and her friend walked to the home of that granny, placed the empty popcorn buckets next to their bed and fell asleep, while the boyfriend found no end and was glued to the beer-fountain.
In the early morning, they woke up by flashing lights and hullaballoo in front of the house. It was caused by the boyfriend who called the police…
As he went home plastered like the yellow brick road, he saw a movement next to a wood pile on the yard of his granny. And he swore by the sun and the moon and the stars and by all brewsky of slice earth that he saw the face of the devil what peeked around that wood pile. He could describe every part of the devilish face and he gave the pawlice all details that they could make a fabulous composite sketch.
Butt the pawlice was eggstremely farouche and they refused to start a dragnet operation. They brought no dogs and hey refused to pulverize the woodpile with machine guns and silver bullets nor would they throw grenades on that pile – Come on pawlice! That’s denial of assistance in an emergency case… and hey, that’s YOUR CHANCE to save the world from the evil.
Sadly the pawlice wasn’t keen to earn endless fame and famousness and after some dingy comments about barflies and drunkards they left the crime scene. And that pawlice actually had the nerve to send a bill for the pawlice operation… 170 bucks… for nothing.
Yes, I know… if more alcohol than blood runs in our veins, it happens that we see “things”… but this guy was scared to death and he was sober with fear immediately. And also the next day he swore that he saw His Diabolic Majesty in the furs… and even as my mom met him by chance some years later, he told her the same story… and he swore again that he saw the devil….
We don’t know what or whom this guy saw that night, but with his detailed description I made an identikit, just in case you walk home once from a harvest festival …
VIOLA… here we have it …

OMP (oh my pig!)
I entered Evil Squirrel’s contest to win a hand drawn artwork for Christmas. Every day for the past week, I’ve been going to the mailbox at the end of the drive to wait on the post man. The first couple of days I met him, he jumped pretty high when he first saw me. Maybe it was the snorting? Maybe it was the fact that I was hiding behind a bush when he rolled up and jumped out at him? I’m not really sure. But since our acquaintance, we have been meeting daily for Christmas cards. I think he’s getting used to me now.
Well yesterday, I finally got my card – squeals! I just *know* it will be worth a million catrillion dollars one day! I’m such a lucky pig! So friends, be sure to check out the other cards that were sent here. And Evil Squirrel – you are the best – I have a piggy crush for sure!

Mom and dad had no clue whatsoever that they were filming another movie at Tybee Island last week. When they arrived and checked into the hotel, they saw a lot of tractor and trailers parked with the sign to the left on them. They’ve made several movies here so mom and dad got excited. They
snooped asked around and were told what was being filmed. How awesome. How exciting.
Then they did some walking around themselves and saw this trolley to the right that mom immediately took a picture of… can you guess what the movie is? Can you? Would you be surprised to learn that they are filming the next Sponge Bob Squarepants 2 movie in the Savannah and Tybee Island area? For real!
How could mom and dad miss this in their trip planning? And they found out that the week before they arrived, Antonio Banderas was doing his shots as a pirate. What?! How could they miss out on all of the wonderful fun. Right?
So the movie comes out in 3D in 2014. Mom/dad knew they missed it by arriving late for the game. But they were going to enjoy the beach nonetheless.
So Monday, mom/dad decide to walk around the beach, enjoying the sun and surf. They walked down to the Tybee pier and skipped the steps going for the direct walk up. There wasn’t any people around so mom does like I do – puts her head down and charges on – snorts.
They passed someone that looked faintly familiar. There was someone in front of this person and another behind the person. Mom continues on dragging daddy behind her. She says, “Hey” to the people. They reply hey back. I mean heck she is from the south – you gotta be friendly, right? Then the person in the middle is in a blacked out van and whisked away.
Mom looked at daddy and said, “Who was that?” Dad says describ him (because you know he can’t see very well). Mom describes him – all in black, black top hat, black, long curly hair, black glasses – dad stops her immediately. What? Say that again to which she did. About the same time, one of the people that had walked him down from the pier said in their walkie-talkie, “Slash to base camp.”
Holy batman – it was Slash, the rock guitarist from Guns N’ Roses. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know who he was either. Mom didn’t – snorts. I had to see a picture to remind myself of who he was. I’m adding this one so you know too. He did a cameo in the new movie. And mom saw him. In fact, she could have flicked him on the ear as daddy said. It was that quick. And you know how daddy can be funny. It was a quick meet but if given the chance daddy was going ask Slash to take a picture with Bashful because you know it would make him famous – snorts.

Does this tell you in any way, shape or form how much I missed my mommy? She snuck into the house when I was taking my nap in my bedroom. I smelled her first and then I heard her voice. I came running in the front room so fast and so hard that I almost knocked her down. She sat on the sofa and I jumped up with her putting my head in her lap. She said I starting making a ‘purr’ sound. I missed my mommy! I stayed there and slept with her for the longest time. Every once in a while, I would lick her fingers to make sure it was her. I stayed there for hours until she just had to get up and go potty. I mean Hannah was great and everything – but she’s not my mommy!
And things weren’t too bad. Can you believe those purr things got into more trouble than I did? Snorts – way to go Hemi and Mouse Girl. Hannah never got use to me calling her for breakfast in the mornings. Man that girl can jump from a dead sleep. But she was sweet and tried really hard to be at my beck and call. She only did one thing that really upset me. Mommy gave me her t-shirt that she had worn to bed the night before she left so I could smell her all week. Hannah thought it was dirty and washed it the second day. After that, I didn’t smell mom anymore and moped around a little.
Oh and there was that incident with the pizza. I’m not mentioning any names but when you leave a slice of pizza just laying around on a television tray in the front room unchaperoned, you just *know* it’s going to call my name… especially when it’s cheese pizza. Thanks Hannah – snorts – nice snack!
I didn’t let mommy go to bed until late last night and she went back to the worky place this morning. It’s just me and dad today getting things from the vacation taken care of. And yeah, I guess I kind of missed him just a little bit too. Don’t tell him though – okay.
Mommy says that she has plenty of pictures for me to post next week about their trip. And you know, I helped Bashful stow away in their suitcase so he went to Savannah too. He had a BALL! He’s going to finish up a couple of things this weekend and will be headed off next week to another secret destination – I know he can’t wait!
Ooohhh – and while mom/dad were at the beach, they saw someone famous. Yep, famous. Can’t wait to tell you who next week!

I’ve done a lot of reserch lately on my kind. I’ve come across what I believe are the top 6 most famous pigs. I wonder if you recognize any of them? Let’s go down memory lane to see if you know at least one 🙂
NUMBER 6 – WILBUR
Everyone remembers this wonderful story from child hood. Saved from the slaughter house – shivers – by Fern, Wilbur grows from the runt of the litter to a prize winning pig.
Sounds kind of familiar with myself since once upon a time, I was a little runt as well. I like to think I’ve done good for myself. This story also has a fabulous looking spider named Charlotte in the novel.
She almost makes you think spiders are cute and adorable, you know.
NUMBER 5 – BABE
All Babe wanted to do was be a sheep dog so what did he do? He trained himself to herd sheep. That makes sense, doesn’t it? No one believed in him that he would succeed but he persevered.
He learned the secret language of sheep and his success and being a sheep pig was secured!
This movie is wonderful and very touching – makes you fall so deeply in love with this special oinker!
NUMBER 4 – MISS PIGGY
The piggy of my dreams – swoon! She is a blue eyed bombshell, all sweet and girlish on one side and on the other side ready to karate chop herself to the top.
What is there not to love about this gorgeous pig?!
When will she ever learn that the green Kermit is not for her and she should just come and live with me at the Hotel Thompson? We could make an awesome – wonderful team together!
NUMBER 3 – ARNOLD ZIFFEL
I’ve been watching this pig for a while now on Green Acres – he is right up there with my friend Maxwell. I love that he lives in Hooterville and does all of the things I like to do – watching TV and changing the channels, taking his lunch box in his mouth to school and painting pictures.
He was a little human pig… just like me! 🙂
Who would have ever thought I was a pig in training from Arnold?!
NUMBER 2 – PORKY PIG
“Th-th-th-that’s all folks!” This is one of my favorite cartoons to watch on my television in my bedroom at the Hotel Thompson. He has stuttered his way into my heart and home.
I think I have several DVD’s of his cartoons that I like to watch at night when I’m falling off to sleep. He’s great! He can carry his own show and be a side character. I just love this cartoon!
And, are you ready for the number 1 pig as a famous pig?
NUMBER 1 – ME OF COURSE!!
Did you honestly think I would pick anyone else? Snort chuckles.
I like to think that I’m famous. Maybe not anywhere else but here with my friends that I simple love and adore!
Thanks for going down memory lane with me.
XOXO – Bacon
