Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,
Little dude, you are a hoot.  I read your blog all of the time.  I mean, up here in the cold – what else is there to do?  All of my buddies come over at least once a week so we can read your page together.  You are so funny little man.  You should go on the road.  What do you think?  We’ll buy tickets!  Signed Sealed and Funny

Dear Signed Sealed and Funny,

Thanks my friend.  I appreciate those kind words.  Everyone here at the Hotel Thompson has a tendency not to take life too serious – just go with it and have some fun.  It makes life so much more interesting!  I’ll let you know about any future road dates. 🙂

Dear Bacon,
You really should overcome your anti-nature fears.  It’s great out outside!  Look at this great picture that my older brother took of me on the beach.  You gotta come here and put your hooves in the sand.  Once you do, you’ll never go back!   I’ll save a beach chair for you – come on down!  Signed Chillin Tiny

Dear Chillin Tiny,

I will keep that in mind my friend.  You do look so very comfortable and that picture really pulls at some heart strings.  I’ve seen pictures from mom of the beach as well.  They make me almost want to rethink my anti-nature policies.  I am working on it.  When I make that leap of faith, I’ll be sure to let you know.  Don’t be surprised if you get a call from me somewhere in the near future my friend!  Thanks for the invite.

Dear Bacon,
Oh little man – purr – come on down to the desert and play with me.  I’m just like one of your purr things there at the Hotel Thompson.  I can help you get over your outdoor phobias.  Trust me, I can.  Growl – Signed Playful

Dear Playful,

For some reason, I just don’t get the same love and desire of you wanting to help me like my friend Chillin Tiny. As you said, you are like the purr things here.  With that in mind, I’m thinking your parting words of ‘trust me’ would be like something Hemi would say here before he swats me on my piggy fanny.  But, I appreciate the invite.  I think I’ll stay in the south and continue to be a member of the Hotel Thompson.  Take care of yourself my friend.  Be sure to use sunscreen.

Dear Bacon,
I bet you had to look twice at this picture, didn’t you or did you?  This thing called Photoshop is amazing.  I could even Photoshop you in my pouch.  Wouldn’t that be fun?  I could take you everywhere!  Signed Hop n’ Fun

Dear Hop n’ Fun,

PLOL (Pig Laughing Out Loud).  That does look like so much fun!  Perhaps I do need to come see you in real life so we can have so much fun down under!


20130601-000845.jpgDear Bacon,

Since all of the Harry Potter movies are done and over with, I have a lot of time on my wings these days.  Most days now, you can find me skateboarding along the boardwalk.  Watch out Tony Hawk – I’m coming for you with some of my tricks.  Signed Hedwig

Dear Hedwig,

I was just wondering what you were up to these days.  I just watched a couple of the Harry Potter movies last weekend.  You’re looking good.  They must be right about the camera adding 10 pounds plus because you look a lot smaller in this picture!  Be safe my friend.

Earth Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

.

April 22nd is EARTH DAY.  Every year, more than 1 billion people in 175 countries will participate in various Earth Day events on this date.  It is the largest civic observance in the world.  The purpose is to raise awareness about important environmental issues.

The first Earth Day took place in 1970.  After witnessing the affects of an oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, US Senator Gaylord Nelson organized a grassroots environmental teach in on college campuses across the country.  Many people believe that this first Earth Day celebration marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement.

Celebrate today – plant a tree, help clean up a beach or park and/or participate in an event near you.  Help to keep this world a better place for everyone!

And a little blast from the past you might remember that deals with Earth Day – Captain Planet and the Planeteers.  Do you remember this show?  It was an American animated environmental program created by Ted Turner, Robert Larkin III and Barbara Pyle.  It came out on September 15, 1990.

The basis of the program was set with Gaia – the spirit of the planet.  She is awakened by drilling which is above her resting chamber.  To control the damage, she sends out five magic rings to youths around the world who will become the Planeteers.

Kwame is from Africa and has the power of Earth with his ring.

Wheeler is from North America and has the power of Fire with his ring.

Linka is from the Soviet Union and has the power of Wind with her ring.

Gi is from Asia and has the power of Water with her ring.

Ma-Ti is from South America and has the power of Heart and telepathy with his ring.

All five can use their rings special powers to call the super hero – Captain Planet for help.

I think today would be the perfect day to check out this old classic of helping the environment!

Happy National Cereal Day –

March 7th is NATIONAL CEREAL DAY.. you know breakfast cereal. Did you know that cereal is the most convenient form of breakfast? It’s quick and easy. Get a bowl, pour cereal, top with milk and enjoy! And, there’s so many different kinds of cereal out there! You can add fruit to it. You can top it with nuts or raisins. You can top it with granola. You can even add honey, maple syrup or crushed fruit. However you eat it, it can be a delicious way to start your day or end your day.

Now, I know this is going to be hard to believe but hang with me for just a minute.  That pig – you know the one they call Bacon on this blog.  This is a picture of his piggy chow in his breakfast bowl that he gets every morning.  Do you know what the little oinker has on top of his piggy chow?  Anyone – anyone at all?  Cheerios!  Can you believe that?!  Even Bacon will be enjoying this day like all others with a topping of Cheerios on his piggy chow.  He doesn’t care what kind, he likes them all!  Regular, chocolate, banana nut, multi-grain, dulce de leche, peanut butter – all of them!

.

I mean think about it.  Cheerios are not just for the heart conscious adults – it’s for the little man too.  He has to watch his heart and health so he can be here for a very long time as well.  Bacon and his mom eat their Cheerios together every morning… of course his mother doesn’t have piggy chow added to hers which is good to know.

So on this National Cereal Day, enjoy a nice bowl of cereal – perhaps even Cheerios and think about the little pig.

OH – And don’t you just LOVE Bacon’s dads special spoon for his cereal eating habits?

Our Hearts are Broken

Our hearts are so broken here at the Hotel Thompson this morning.  We woke up to hear about the passing of our beloved brother Easy.  Please friends, join us in lighting a candle and sending massive hogs and snout kisses to Easy’s parents during this time.  Our hearts go out to them ❤

Travels in the South

img_8522

Hello friends – welcome to another edition of Travels in the South.  This week mom/dad went back for what they know.  They went to a local steakhouse that offers an appetizer called “Wild, Wild Shrimp”.  Better yet, mom had a coupon for this appetizer so that makes it even better, right?

These shrimp are lightly battered and friend.  They are served with different kinds of spicy peppers with a blue cheese dip dressing.  If you are like daddy, you pick the shrimp out and leave the peppers – snorts with piggy laughter.  But if you are mom, you jump feet first in and eat your way out.  Of course, this always goes well accompanied by a glass of Chardonnay, which mom had.

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon – Seriously!?  Trust me humans.  Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.  Really – trust me.  The commercials for “bring your pets anywhere” and the “adventure” doesn’t really fly with us anipals.  Let alone the phrase bonding.  Let me tell you a secret humans – pay attention now – we can bond at home.  No need for the side of a cliff.  I’m just sayin!  Signed Hanging Kitty

Dear Hanging Kitty – Dude, I got you totally on this.  I take great comfort in the confinement of my home.  I have no intentions of camping or hanging out like yourself there – EVER!  But my friend – please be careful until you get back home.  You wouldn’t want to lose one of those lives of yours.


Dear Bacon – I get called a name a lot that this picture represents.  I know you are a smart pig and can figure this out.  I really don’t like this name.  I prefer Donkey.  I mean doesn’t that sound so much better than the other word?  Go ahead and get it out.  I know you want to.  Signed Sir Donkey

Dear Sir Donkey – It took me a couple of minutes but I get it.  That’s pretty funny.  It’s a hole and your a …. donkey.  Snorts with piggy laughter.  Yeah, I think I like donkey better too.


Dear Bacon – Do you believe piggy friend?  I so do!  I just know that we can’t be the only ones out here.  There has to be little green men or grey men – something like that out there too.  I’ve watched a lot of documentaries and silently slithered listening to the information.  I even thought I would put aluminum foil on my head to see if I can make contact.  I admit I got help with that.. you know no fingers and all.  So what do you think?  Is there life out there among us that don’t belong here?  Signed Slivering Scully

Dear Slivering Scully – OMP!  I’ve seen those shows too.  All of them – Area 51, X-Files, Monsters and Mysteries in America just to name a few.  I do believe.  I mean heck, I think some of them walk among us.  I mean think about – I could be a pig from another planet.  It could happen – snorts!


Dear Bacon – I give up.  This two legged creature is now living with us in my home.  Mom and dad left one day and then a couple of days came back home with it.  It is loud.  It stinks.  It throws up fur balls a lot.  It just sleeps and poops.  Rolls kitty eyes.  I really don’t understand it.  So I climb in one of it’s sitting play things.  And guess what?  I got stuck.  So disgraceful.  I couldn’t move.  I couldn’t wiggle out of it.  I was totally humiliated.  Of course the humans got me out after they took pictures for that Facebook thing.  Kill me now.  Signed Stuck in a Rough Place

Dear Stuck in a Rough Place – I have so been there my friend many times.  Of course the humans are going to take pictures first before helping you out of your delicate situation.  I don’t understand them at all.  I really don’t.  I’m sorry about it being in your home now.  Try to stay far, far away from it… at least until they are in their teens.

 


Dear Bacon – Look I might be a small pup but I’m strong in heart.  I must weigh 200 pounds – look at these muscles!  Do you lift?  Signed Dexter

Dear Dexter – Aaww – you do look like you are strong like an ox my friend.  Remember safety first and always have a spotter okay.


❤ Remember friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to email me your pictures/letters. ❤
