Bacon’s Show and Tell

This month, we are focusing on gifts.  Since Christmas was just last month, let’s focus on that one thing that you received that was absolutely wonderful.  Maybe it wasn’t from Christmas – perhaps it was on your birthday last year.  What is it – why can’t you live without it?

Okay this month it’s easy.  What’s the ONE gift that mom can’t live without?  Of course, it would have to be her Apple i-Watch that her sister gave her.  It does everything.  It’s like an extension of her cell phone that she wears on her wrist.  It’s a watch.  It’s a phone.  It’s a trainer.  It’s a therapist with her breathing and stress levels.  It keeps up with her steps/her miles.  It challenges her to be more.  It does everything!  So yes, that would be the one gift that mom can’t live without.  Much, MUCH thank you to her sister – Tina!

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Bacon’s Show and Tell – This month we are highlighting embarrassing Christmas stories.  There wI’ll always be the story of daddy buying mom the endless love jewelry collection and wrapping it over and over box within box upwards twenty times.  Thank goodness dad didn’t learn of the Saran Wrap wrapping method.  Have you heard of it? You wrap the presents however many times and then proceed to wrap an entire box of Saran Wrap around the package.  Yeah – mom would have hurt him.  

But I digress.  I think one of the funniest things was mom taking these pictures of dad without him knowing it n a restaurant.  I would say the were priceless.  What do you think?

We Got Mail

Squeals with piggy excitement.  Don’t you just get overly excited when you get mail?  I know this little oinker does.  Heck, I’m on a first snort basis with our mailman.  I think he gets as excited as I do when he sees an envelope made out to this little piggy.  And what was it and who was it from you are asking yourself?

Wait no longer.  I got the world.  Snorts with piggy laughter – okay maybe not the ‘world’… but I did get Australia.  Okay maybe not the entire Australia – how about a snow globe of Australia.  And who was it from?  It was from my bestest Auntie Sharon in the entire world.  You know Auntie Sharon from gentlestitches.  Isn’t she the best and so awesome for thinking of little old me?  I just want to jump in an airplane and go thank her in person… but there’s too many layovers and I might get lost.  Wouldn’t that be something?  Can you see it now in the headlines, “Traveling oinker lost in connections.”

So Auntie Sharon – I’m sending you loads of hogs and snout kisses.  Forgive me okay if I didn’t send you an email right away.  Mom has been under the weather.  It’s hard enough to keep daddy in check these days but we all know when the mommy is down, the house is down.  Much love my sweet friend ❤

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Welcome my Friends to August – Bacon’s Show and Tell

This month we are talking about that ONE thing that you had growing up that impressed your life all of these years that you still think about it?  Something that maybe perhaps you still have somewhere put away in your home?  Something that when you look back at and think of the times you had with this ONE thing that it makes you smile so wide and your heart just glows?

 


Today I want to talk about one of mom’s things that has touched her all of her life.  Something that she has kept  and would never do without.  See this little dresser – three deep drawers with foxes/bears on the front.  This little dresser has been in mom’s life close to 46 years.  You see, shortly after mom was born her daddy built this little dresser for her.  And mom has kept it all these years.

It has lots of dings and scratches and some of the stickers on the front are even starting to come off.  But still mom has it and wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.  It sits in my and Houdini’s room and we treasure it too.

In fact, currently it is being used to store all of Houdini’s clothes.  So you can kind of say that it’s second generation now doing it’s thing. ❤

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.  It takes everyone in blogville to have a party every month 🙂

This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting the funniest gift you have been given.

At Christmas when mom/dad were first starting to date, both sides of parents would have get together’s for dinner and presents.  Around the 2nd or 3rd year of mom/dad dating, they were gathered at mom’s parents house for presents.  They would pass presents around and each person would open them up while others watched.  This particular Christmas had two funny gifts.

One was for mom’s mom (my Nana) that was from dad.  One day dad heard Nana telling Grandpa that she absolutely loved pickles and she couldn’t get enough of them.  Well, dad wanting to please her, fixed her up.  He went to our local Sam’s Club and bought Nana the biggest jar of pickles he could find.  One gallon of awesome dill pickles all to herself.  What a guy huh?

The same Christmas, mom also got a present from daddy.  She opened it up and it held nothing but band-aids and bandages of all assortment.  Mom was confused at most while others wondered too what was this about.  That’s when mom found the card in the box from daddy.  It said, “You look as good to me as a bare ankle to a rattlesnake and I’m going to be all over you.”  Various shades of red on mom’s face can not explain the embarrassment and trying to explain the box without reading the note.
