Favorite Shows?

Snorts and oinks friends to a happy and wonderful Friday!  I think my buddy Maxwell says it best in this video clip – bring on the weekend!

So today on this fine Friday, I wanted to ask you an important question.  You see mom and dad were discussing their favorite shows on television last night and it got me to thinking.  Why don’t I ask all of you my friends so that maybe we can highlight a show that someone else might want to watch.  Makes sense huh?

So I’m going to start with our three favorite shows to watch here at the Hotel Thompson (in no particular order).

Mountain Monsters – Now this is a show that we didn’t watch right off when it came on the Destination American channel.  But one night mom did and she has been hooked every since.  The AIMS team (which stands for Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings) goes all over looking for monsters in the woods.  AIMS was founded by team members Trapper John Tice, Jeff Headlee and Willy McQuillian.  There is also Buck, Wild Bill and Huckleberry.  Awesome names huh?  They have done shows on everything from the Jersey Devil to the mysterious Bigfoot.

Investigative Discovery – Or as you may know and recognize it – the I.D. Channel.  Anything that is related to murder is on the channel.  And my mom – she considers herself an inspector in trying to figure out the show endings before the television tells you.  It’s really interesting to see how people think they can “get away” with murder.  Never a dull moment and trust me, you won’t be able to just watch ‘one’ show and leave.  Oh no, you will be hooked!

Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Brothers and Dead Files – Okay I hooked all of these up in one posting because they all deal with the paranormal, the afterlife, the what bumps in the middle of the night and keeps you on your toes kind of television shows.  Mom and dad both love this stuff and yeah I have to admit that it’s grown on me.  I’m not as afraid of things in the middle of the night anymore.  Houdini though – he’s another story.

So tell me my friends, what are your favorite shows?

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month.

This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are going to highlight what else but something embarrassing on your humans – snorts with piggy laughter!  Has your humans ever did something so embarrassing to each other that to this day it still stands out?  A joke?  Something that was suppose to be serious but turned out hysterical instead?

This month – I’m giving it to my mom for her tale – hope you enjoy it my friends – snorts with evil laughter.

This happened many, many years ago when I was still single and I was living in my first apartment.  After years of throwing rent out of the window, I decided that it was time to invest in buying my first house.  Jim of course said he would help me with the packing – so nice of him.  He came over after work one day and as I boxed items up, I would tell him what was in them so he could tape the box and write on the outside the items enclosed – you know the typical moving fashion.  He would then stack all of the boxes in my living room awaiting to be moved to their new home.  This went on all day long and we finally got everything boxed up – I was so happy!

The day of the move came and one of my girlfriends husbands owned his own company.  He got his staff to come over and move me down the road to my new house.  As they were moving the boxes, I heard snickers and laughs but I didn’t think of it.  As we got to the new house and was unloaded the boxes, I had them place them all in one of my spare bedrooms so I could unpack them at a later time.  Again, here was the snickers and laughter.

Finally my girlfriends husband took me to the side and he was laughing.  He asked me if I had packed the boxes.  I said that I did and that my boyfriend at the time taped them and wrote was in them.  That’s when my girlfriends husband bent over laughing so hard that he farted.  Yep he farted.  What in the world?!  He finally got himself together and said come here.

He took me to the spare bedroom where his workers were standing around laughing and pointing at my boxes.  My ever so helpful boyfriend instead of writing kitchen items, bedroom, bathroom, clothes or dining room had written such things as porn, soft porn, whips, leather, dildo’s, sex toys, lingerie, etc.

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Welcome my friends to Bacon’s Show and Tell for January.  This month we are talking about something embarrassing that has happened in our life.  It could be something from child hood, adult hood – last week for that matter.

My mom/dad are known for their troublesome ways.  In fact, I do believe that trouble finds them each and every time they leave the Hotel Thompson.  It’s just going to happen.  I’ve accepted that in my piggy life.  So today, I want to share two stories with you on my parents on something embarrassing.

First up – Dad

Now if you have been reading my blog for any length of time you know that dad is a character.  One night dad and mom decided to go out to dinner down the street at a local cafe.  Dad put on some sweats and an old t-shirt, nothing elaborate.  They drove down to the dinner, got out and started to walk to the front door.  The restaurant had windows all along the front of it and you could see inside as well as the people see outside.  Dad went to step up on the walkway and right about that time his pants got tired and fell down to his ankles.  Nothing like dinner and a show huh?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

Second up – Mom

Sweet mom.  Dad’s always picking on her and getting away with it in public places.  You know for two old people, they can be cute this way.  Dad will sometimes sneak a kiss or pat mom on the butt and nobody ever catches him doing it.  One time, mom/dad were at the mall at a store named Macy’s.  They were walking around and mom thought she was going to pat dad on the butt like he does her.  She went and did it.  Well about that time, this elderly lady turns the corner and catches mom right in the action.  Oh dear piggy heavens.  You would have thought with the way the elderly lady acted that she had caught mom grabbing dad’s front side and not his back side.  It was priceless.  Of course, dad walked off leaving mom standing there all embarrassed while said lady gave mom a tongue lashing like you wouldn’t believe.  When mom tried to walk away, the elderly lady followed her telling her that her actions were unladylike and very unbecoming a southern lady.

Shopping Around the World

Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World last month.  It’s so awesome to see the various prices around the world – and the pictures with recipes!

This month we have a suggestion from my cousin Sammy on highlighting cookies or other sweets for December.  Is there a special treat that you fix only around the Christmas holidays?  A certain cookie to share?  It does not have to be five items or less this month.  Share your recipe and picture of your sweet items.

This time of the year mom loves to fix what she has always called reindeer noses.  Now they have been called other things like yummy, pure grace, delicious, Rolo droppings, etc.  Snorts with piggy laughter.  It doesn’t matter what you call them because you will absolutely love them.  AND they are so easy to make.  You will need:  1 bag of pecan halves (prices range on this – the bag I bought was $8.99); 1 bag of Rolo caramels in milk chocolate candies ($4.00) ; and 1 bag of small pretzels ($1.50 on sale).  Total paid around $14.50 for some priceless candy 🙂

Turn your oven on to around 250-300 degrees.  While that is pre-heating, start taking all of the aggravating pretty foils off of the Rolo caramels in milk chocolates.  Yes you can be like my mommy and eat some for all of that painstaking foil removal.  Then, put some parchment paper on a baking pan.  Add a bunch of small pretzels and top with one Rolo each.  Now, here is the tricky part.  You don’t want to put so many on the baking pan that when you pull it out of the oven you don’t have time to top them with the pecan half.  You see they will cool fast and you want that finishing touch – trust me.  Okay so now you have your pan planned out.  Place it in the hot oven for around 5 minutes until the Rolo melts all over the pretzel.  Once that happens, remove the pan and quickly add a 1/2 of pecan to the top squishing it down in the chocolate.  mmm – just thinking about it.

Let these cool before trying one.  Trust me on this – daddy found out the hard way.  Once they are cool, put in a air tight container and share… or not 🙂

Bacon’s Show and Tell

This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting December.  What we do, traditions, food, parties with friends and family – what special things do we do for the Christmas holidays?

Now mom/dad have been together since Moby Dick was a minnow.  Daddy said that when he was courting mommy, every year for Christmas they would go to mom’s family in the morning with presents and dinner.  Then in the afternoon, they would head to dad’s family for presents and dinner.  It was certainly a full day surrounded by family, food, love and LOTS of people coming/going.

Once mommy decided to let daddy ‘catch her’ and put a ring on her finger by marriage, their house was the gathering point for a couple of years for the family dinner and presents.  Then here and there, moms and dads passed away and it was time for my mom/dad to start making their own ‘family’ tradition.

Since mom/dad don’t have any two legged creatures for Christmas, me and the other anipals here at the Hotel Thompson step up.  Hey, it’s the least we can do for mom/dad, right?  So we leave out little hints – cut outs from pet store magazines, videos from television and paw prints spelling out what we want from Santa.  Then mom/dad have a direct line to Santa and tell him everything.  On Christmas day, we all get up at the crack of dawn and rush to the living room to shred open presents.  It’s a grand time in our day.

Then when we have played with our toys and ate some treats, we anipals take a nap so that mom/dad can do their Christmas.  You ask what?  Well, you just *know* it’s going to involve food – snorts with piggy laughter.

For years now, mom/dad go to a local restaurant for all you can eat CRAB LEGS.  Can you believe that?  How traditional is that?  Not so much but they absolutely love it.  And let me tell you something.  They are serious about their crab legs.  They wear bibs and everything and they have tools.  Tools to eat?!  WOW – I don’t have tools to eat… well unless you count my powerful snout and hooves – snorts with piggy laughter.

   .

But they get buckets of crab made in a spicy boil that are delivered fresh and steaming to their table.  They then throw caution to the wind and get cracking.  Neither one of them throw in the towel until they are happily full of crab meat.

This is their time to spend together, talk about family that have passed, laugh and joke about their days together.  They talk about their life together and drink to years more to come.  They talk about their love for each other.

And talking about love. Mom has bad arthritis in her fingers.  There comes to a point in her crab cracking that those fingers just give out.  And what does daddy do about it?  He will sit there and crack open her crab legs for her to eat.  Now my friends, that is love!
