Dear Bacon – What? Who are people to judge? There I was walking in the woods minding my own business. That’s when it crossed my path. It was so huge. So ugly. So mean looking. Shivers to Smokey the Bear. This thing was huge. What can I say? Even bears hate spiders. They are evil little creatures. Are you afraid of those eight legged freaks too? Signed Sitting on Top of the World
Dear Sitting on Top of the World – I agree with you whole heatedly my friend – SHIVERS! To be so small and somewhat innocent looking, those legs and eyes set me off every single time. They are a wicked bunch who think the entire world is out to get them. In thinking such, Yes. I can admit it. I’m so afraid of them. Heck we had one outside our front porch here at the Hotel Thompson that was so huge that it could carry me off. Is there any room up there for me too?
Dear Bacon – I’m just trying to set the record straight my friend. Not all of my kind is mean or aggressive. That’s how the bad owners try to make us feel. Take for instance me – I’m full of love and kindness as you can see by my friends. I love everyone and would not hurt not a soul. Signed Love Actually
Dear Love Actually – Bravo my friend. You make a great example in setting everyone straight. We are only as our humans are. Full of love and life shows the kindness in your humans – just like mine. We wouldn’t hurt anyone… except for maybe licks and kisses. Keep up the great work!
Dear Bacon – It’s time to have a talk with my master. After balancing the budget for him, there are some cuts to be made. I think we should start in his food budget and see how he likes it for a change. What do you think? Signed Bulldog Accounting
Dear Bulldog Accounting – I think you may be on to something my friend. If we cut their food budget and the things they enjoy, they might see the light when it comes to cutting our food supply and the things we enjoy. Great strategy. Let me know how it works okay.
Dear Bacon – I am ready for the battle. I will protect and serve you my oinker friend through thick and then. I have my sandals and sword and will travel for your safety. Signed Warrior
Dear Warrior – Aaww – that’s a great friend that would pick up, travel to my side and protect me through thick and thin. You are such a great and brave warrior. But in these parts here at the Hotel Thompson, I don’t have much to worry about. Not really. I think most days all I do worry about is whether or not tonight I’m having a salad or side dish from mom/dad’s dinner. That’s the highlight of my worries. You see, I have it made here at the Hotel Thompson. I know that. I say your talents and bravery should be for say a woman of your kind… that way you can win her heart forever every day together. What do you think? Keep me posted because I think personally any woman would be honored to have you at her side – her shining knight hero.
Dear Bacon – Roar! I’m a bear. I’m a fox. I’m a dog. Listen to me ROAR. Barks! No not really. You see I am a dog. However, I look like a fox or a bear. Neat huh? My humans love that about me. At first people are like WOW – look at that bear. Then they learn that I’m a poochie. Then they are like aaaww isn’t he cute? I’ll take it – I’ll take all of the attention I can get. Right? Signed PandaFoxPooch
Dear PandaFoxPooch – I think that’s awesome! You can have the best of three different worlds. Just think of the tight spots you can get out of with your multi-talents. Too cool my friend. And you have the entire package – the looks, the coloring and the roar and barking. Carry it with pride!
Remember my friends that Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send your pictures and letters to my email address. 🙂
Sometimes I wonder if my humans fell on their heads repeatedly as small children. Really I do. You see a couple of weekends ago during mom’s marathon shopping spree, they took pictures and a video of something that I just found this past weekend. Mom always has the coolest pictures and such on her iPhone. In fact there is no telling what you will find on that phone. So there I was, reviewing her pictures and came across a video. Oh My Piggy Heavens. After watching it a half of dozen times – yes it’s that addictive, I had to ask mom about it.
Well, they were at Wally World (for most people that would be Walmart) – snorts. They saw this item on a shelf and knowing my dad he just had to see what it was and how it worked. They pushed a button and the next thing you know they are laughing like two hysterical kids in the toy department. Mom said she almost peed on herself. You know it’s good huh?
Of course when I saw it, I thought about twerking team captain Fozzie from down under. Why do you ask. Let me show you the video. And please tell me – do your parents do anything crazy like this? Snorts with piggy laughter.
And P.S. Please take note – that is a lady that walks by laughing at mom/dad with the twerking teddy.
Oh my friends! We here at the Hotel Thompson have been watching a new game show on television called Bullseye. It is hosted by Kellan Lutz – you know him from Twlight (he played Emmett Cullen) and co-hosted by Godfrey who is a comedian on the Godfrey Complex. This show is a combination of Wipe Out and Fear Factor.
It starts with 8 contestants (4 women and 4 men). They have to go through three challenges. By the beginning of the third challenge, they are down to 3 contestants to go up against each other to win $50,000! So you think it’s easy to play?
They have different challenges that I’ve seen in the past couple of weeks. One challenge had the contestants running down a MOVING train from the caboose to the engine. Along the ways, they were throwing off bullseye’s that were attached to the side of the train. Then they rushed to the front of the train and jumped off to hit the big bullseye to stop the train. Don’t worry – they were all tied so they wouldn’t fall off the train or jump to far in front of the train to stop it. But can you imagine doing this? The quickest one that got all of the bullseyes removed, won the $50,000. Not bad for a days work huh?
I’ve also seen it where they are attached to a cord hanging off of a helicopter. They are swung through the air and have to throw big bean bags towards a bullseye on the ground. They get two attempts and the closes bean bag to the bullseye target wins. Sound fun swinging through the air?
The show airs on the Fox channel on Wednesday nights at 9:00 PM. Mark your calendar to watch it this week. We highly recommend it here at the Hotel Thompson. In fact, I think I’m going to practice hitting some bullseye targets this week… where are those purr things to help me out? Snorts!
So, I’ve started watching this new series on television. It comes on the Fox channel at 9:00PM on Monday nights. It’s called… are you ready? Sleepy Hollow – insert spooky music here.
This past Monday was the first episode. If you loved the original Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, you will probably love this as well. This new series is like a modern day version of the fairy tale fantasy. I had doubts before watching the show but after the first episode – I’m hooked – hooves and all!
This new show has everything – suspense, drama, witchcraft, adventure, thriller and a headless horseman. Who could ask for anything more?
The show, of course, revolves around a resurrected Headless Horseman, Ichabod Crane and Lieutenant Abbie Mills in 2013 Sleepy Hollow, New York.
As Ichabod Crane, can you imagine waking up to the 21st century when all you remember is 18th century Colonial America? Technology alone mystifies poor Crane. There is even some humor in these clips, especially when he gets in a car and starts playing with the windows – up/down/down/up – too funny.
If you get a chance, you must check out this show and see what you think. We at the Hotel Thompson are hooked on the first episode. I did hear on the television this morning that there will be some reshows of the pilot tonight. Check your television guides.
The second episode titled Blood Moon will be on September 23, 2013 at 9:00PM.
Of course, this little piggy has his thoughts on who in the show is bad and who is good already. I can’t wait to watch future shows to see if I’m right. Please let me know what you think. XOXO – Bacon
