Cuddle Up Day and Another Special Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

Today, January 6th, is a special day.  For one thing, it’s Cuddle Up Day.  Doesn’t that just sound wonderful?  It’s cold outside, make a fire and cuddle up for some snuggles.  And, you don’t have to cuddle with someone to appreciate this day.  Cuddle up in your favorite chair in front of that fireplace, pop in a movie, relax and enjoy your time.  Bring out one of your favorite stuffed animals – I’ve seen Bacon’s mom do that.  And hey, speaking of Bacon – cuddle up to your favorite pet.  I know Bacon will get his share of cuddles today.. as well as Houdini… as well as Hemi… as well as Mouse Girl 🙂

AND…

Today is also another special day. Today is also the big guy’s birthday here at the Hotel Thompson.  It’s dad’s birthday.  Now, he won’t tell us how old he is but I think he was around during the dinosaur era.  Why?  Because I hear Bacon’s mom calling him T-Rex at times.  Shakes squirrel head – so that has to be true, right?

So at this time, all of us here at the Hotel Thompson would like to wish the big guy a very wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  You do so much for us from giving us nuts to cleaning our litter boxes out to even cooking for us from time to time.  You are definitely the icing on our cake… and speaking of cake – enjoy – we love you big guy!

Merry Christmas

Last night, I made a deal with Hemi and Houdini.  We were going to hang out near the Mickey Mouse lamp pole all night in hopes of seeing the mysterious Santa Claus.  Mom/dad told us all that he wouldn’t come as long as our eyes were open.  So in preparation, we taped them open just in case Mr. Sandman came first.  We waited and waited to no avail.  Hemi and Houdini got frustrated and went to mom/dad’s room to sleep on the Select Comfort.  I myself was determined.  I mean hey, they don’t call me pig headed for nothing, right?  Snorts.

So I waited and waited – no snow – no reindeers – no fatman in red.  I was having a hard time trying to stay awake.  I jumped on the sofa and that was a big mistake.  Before I knew it, my eyes were droopy, my breathing had slowed and I had drifted off to peace on earth.

I’m not sure how much time had passed but something awakened me and it wasn’t my gas.  I kept one eye closed and barely opened the other.  To my surprise I saw a big fat guy all in red.  He was quietly putting pretty wrapped presents around the pole that he had first mistaken as a stripper pole – oh dear Lord.  But hold everything and wait a minute what is that caught my attention?  A woman was beside him wearing next to nothing.  No wonder for his confusion on the pole.  The next thing that happened scarred me for life when Santa grabbed said woman and gave her a kiss to last.  OMP (oh my pig).  What was that?  She turned and grinned and I saw it wasn’t a woman – it was my mom!  What will daddy think – what will daddy say.  I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus.  THUD – piggy down.

I shut my eyes so very fast.  This is not something that a pig wants to last.  When I reopened my eyes much to my amazement, everyone was gone but the presents were still there – all decorated – all wrapped – tucked in neatly around the Mickey Mouse pole lamp.  But something caught my eye in the corner near one box.  It was green and waving, “Come take a look”.  I quietly exited off my sofa and softly hooved my way across the floor.  Oh dear Lord – it was a $20.00 bill – I guess Santa did get a dance from the lap pole after all.

I squealed and ran down to my room in a hurry and tucked myself in to my toddler bed.  When then what did I hear?  Soft taps on the roof, a jingle of bells and in a loud bellow I heard a man say, “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!”

Decorating for the Holidays

 Happy day my friends.  We finally got everything together here at the Hotel Thompson and finished decorating for the holidays.  We don’t put up a tree here for obvious reasons – the two H’s – Hemi and Houdini.  That tree wouldn’t stand five minutes being decorated in our living room.  Trust me on that.  Between the purr thing climbing it and exploring, the puppy watering it and chewing on the bottom branches and well me – looks innocently – head bunting it, it would get tired and fall down to sleep.  I’m just saying and being realistic here.  It’s a good thing mom and dad agree.

So no tree here.  But don’t frown.  We have a Mickey Mouse lamp pole.  That fits in perfect here at the Hotel Thompson.  You know my mom LOVES that mouse with the gloves and we still get the pretty lights from the pole.  And the pole is sturdy.  I mean really sturdy like 20-25 pounds.  Hey, it’s gotta be sturdy to hold that huge Mickey Mouse head – snorts.

 We also put out my stocking for Christmas.  What?  You think it’s too small?  I told mommy I needed a bigger one.  One can never be too big for all of the goodies that dear Santa might leave in my stocking.  You know – like fruits, vegetables, Gold Fish and Animal Crackers – snorts.

I just have to find the perfect place to hang my stocking.  For some reason, daddy says we can’t put it on the fireplace mantle this year.  Something about it pulling down on the mantle last year.  One heavy stocking and your scarred for life huh?  Bummer daddy.

So I have to find a place for my little stocking.  I’m thinking on the back of the front room door.  That would surely be a nice place to put it.  And also Santa won’t miss it, right?  What do you think.  Any suggestions?

So who wants to kiss the Bacon?  Snorts

Paw Time with Houdini


img_5474 Brrr and Shivers my friends.  It has been a little chilly willy here this week at the Hotel Thompson.  I mean you did see the great ‘snow’ that big brother Bacon posted earlier int he week, right?  Heck, here in the south – a snow flake was seen, we must shut down the city!  Barks with puppy laughter.

Well it was so bad, that I had to get on top of mom’s chaise and get warm by the fuzzy blanket and the fireplace – you see that in the distance in the picture?  And yes, we can’t forget Mr. Beaver.  Mr. Beaver is what is next to my head.  He is way bigger than me and I drag him all over the Hotel Thompson.  He’s a great pal for sleeping, cuddling and of course beating up… can you believe sometimes he tries to beat me up too?  How dare that beaver!

And you are not going to believe this my friends but me and the Baconator have been keeping secrets here at the Hotel Thompson.  Yep, that’s right we said secrets as in plural.  Something will be happening next week.  I can’t share it right now.  Me and the pig have been sworn to secrecy by mom/dad.  But I can tell you that it’s exciting and wonderful.  Now, I need to go and help mom/dad with some cleaning around the Hotel Thompson.

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Time to Decorate

We finally got everything together here at the Hotel Thompson and finished decorating for the holidays.  We don’t put up a tree here for obvious reasons – two purr things, a pig and a dog now.  That tree wouldn’t stand five minutes being decorated in our living room.  Trust me on that.  Between the purr things climbing it and exploring, the dog watering it and chewing on the bottom branches and well me – looks innocently – head bunting it, it would get tired and fall down to sleep.  I’m just saying and being realistic here.  It’s a good thing mom and dad agree.
