Bacon’s Show and Tell

Welcome my friends to this months Bacon’s Show and Tell.  We are highlighting a picture from your childhood.  Something that you have fond memories about and/or a story behind.

My dad when he was younger had a love for cowboy things – hats, boots, etc.  He wore them all of the time and would hardly take things off.  He even told his mother when he was younger, he wanted to wear this attire for his yearly Christmas picture.  So off they went.  Him in his cowboy hat, boots and winter coat.

He climbed up on Santa’s lap and told him what he wanted for Christmas.  Of course, more action figures, toys and you guessed it – more cowboy stuff.  You can see from Santa’s face how enthralled he was at the information and for dad’s details of exactly what kind of everything he wanted.  Looking at the picture, daddy’s mom *almost* felt sorry for Santa… almost.

 .

And this is mommy.  She is all decked out in a handmade shawl and hat that I believe was what her grandmother made.  She was a happy baby and excited for most picture days.   I think this picture was actually taken around Easter one year.

And hey look at those chubby cheeks – you want to pinch them don’t you?  I hope you had fun my friends with this month’s Bacon’s Show and Tell.  See you next month!

Thank You and Help Please

Oh my friends!  What a wonderful thing that happened here last night at the Hotel Thompson.  I got mail!  Not an email but real goodness mail.  I was so piggy excited that I ran all over the house and couldn’t wait until mommy got home from the worky place to open the package.

 When she did – OMP!

It was the most beautiful thing in the world.  My ❤ just swelled up with so much love to my good pal Fozzie.  Why do you ask?  Well, she actually made me something with very own two hands.  It’s adorable – LIKE ME.  It’s cute – LIKE ME.  It’s priceless – LIKE ME!  It has an awesome bell on it that is so freaking cute!  I’m letting mom take it to work with her to put on her desk beside another great piggy that my Auntie Sharon made me a while back.  That way every single time mom looks at them during her stressful day, she will think of all of the love that went into making these and of course of ME!

And of course, mommy did a special thank you video to my friend Fozzie.  You can see that at the bottom.  NOTE:  Ignore mom’s southern twang – snorts.

And now this is the part where I need you my friends.  As you know we have little Houdini here at the Hotel Thompson.  The little guy is going through some puppy teething kind of bad.  He wants to chew on everything – including my tail – snorts!  Any of you my good friends have any thoughts or suggestions on helping the little guy out?  Anything would be like most welcomed.  Mom tried the washcloth in the freezer trick – he turned his nose up at it and went for mom’s fingers instead – snorticles.

.

So – can you help this piggy out?  I know my tail and mom’s fingers would like great appreciate it so very much!
