Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon,
One of my characters is Harry Potter. I’ve read all of his books and seen all of the movies multiple times. Do you think it’s weird of me to dress like this? Signed Harry Trotter

Dear Harry Trotter,
We can have our idols too. I favor Spiderman AKA Spiderpig. It doesn’t hurt anyone so why not? You trot my man – you trot!

Dear Bacon,
The other kitties in the house make fun of me because I pray every night. They say animals can’t do this. I say they can. What do you think? You never know until you ask, right?  Signed Praying Puss

Dear Praying Puss,
If He moves in your heart to pray, go for it. Don’t let others judge or try to change you. Pray on my friend.

Dear Bacon,
I need help. I just can’t smile. This is my happy face. I’m a rough and tumble kind of pooch.  I take no crap.  I protect the house.  I protect the master.  I can’t afford to smile.  A dog has to do what a dog has to do.  Any suggestions?  Signed Canine Exposed.

Dear Canine Exposed,

I understand wanting to protect the house, master and what is rightfully yours.  I’m going to assume that you are single.  You need to relax the lips and teeth sometimes and let someone close.  You can smile and still be a strong dog in charge.  Just know when to show the teeth and when not to.  Good luck!

Hey Pig,

Two people can play this game.  I borrowed your computer earlier and surfed the net.  You’re not the only one with skills.  Just wait until you find out where I’ve been using your log in.  HEE HEE – Signed Hemi the Master

Dear Hemi the You Think You Are The Master,

Stay out of my room.  I’m going to tell mom on you.  Keep your claws off what is not yours.  Just remember – all is fair in love and war.  I have the proof in the picture that you were using my toys again.  Be afraid.


Dear Bacon,

We think you’re handsome!  We all take turns driving a pink Corvette.  You would look awesome in it.  If you are ever in Dallas, come see us.  Signed Charlies Bunnies

Dear Charlies Bunnies,

Thanks for the invite girls.  You rock!

Wiggle Your Toes Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Friends – What a glorious day this is – Wiggle Your Toes Day!  Think about it – whether you have paws, toes, hooves or whatever, sometimes it just feels good to spread those toes and wiggle them.  Let those piggies loose (no offense Bacon).

Humans push their toes in shows or socks all day long.  They are always in a rush and sometimes forget to slow down.  Today, slow down!  Take those toes out of their confinements, wiggle them and let them breathe for a while.

Toes, hooves or paws come in all different sizes and shapes.  Have you wiggled your toes yet today?

Friendship Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Who could ask for a better day?  The first Sunday of August is always Friendship Day.  Isn’t that a wonderful day to celebrate?  What is better than friends – whether they come in the human form or the animal form.  Friends are always there with us in good times and in bad times, to share special moments in our lives.  Sometimes all it takes is just a smile, holding a hand, a hug or just an ear or shoulder to cry on.

Friendship Day should be celebrated by phone, in person or by reaching out in an email or blog.  You don’t have to live next door to show someone how much you care.  Express your friendship in some way today and show the ones that you love what they mean to you.

NOTE FROM PIGLOVE –

We here at Piglove would like to tell all of our friends here how much we love and appreciate them.  You put up with our silliness, our sometimes seriousness (although it doesn’t happen often) and our whack-o ways.  We started Piglove as an outlet to share memories of Bacon… a cute little miniature pot bellied pig.  This blog has grown so much to include Houdini, Hemi, as well as Journalist Rocky the Squirrel and all of the rock clan. 

 You have helped me to personally grow and do something that I love, to write and make people laugh.  I would like to take this time on Friendship Day and tell each and everyone of you – Thank You for being our friends.  We cherish our times, our talks, our emails and phone calls.  We cherish your ‘go with this’ attitude when we come up with something whacky and new.  You can never imagine how much your friendship means to us.  Here’s to another year of great posting, inter-action with our friends and much laughter –  Bacon’s humans

International Day of Friendship

  Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Of all of the important holidays I can tell you about, today seems to be the most important in my book.  July 30th is International Day of Friendship.  The world is filled with too much hate, too many wars, too much prejudice and way too many disagreements.  Today, we should put all of that aside and reach out to each other and say, “Hello friend happy friendship day!”

This is just not a backyard problem or a school playground problem.  This is a worldwide problem.  A problem that needs to come to an end.  Everyone has differences – we wouldn’t be individuals if we didn’t.  But when you look down to it, we all want to be happy and what better way than to get along.

Today let’s make friends with different people, different cultures and different countries.  Extend your hand – or an olive branch – and say hello friend.  Say hello to your neighbor, to the stranger at the market and say hello to a person that you see everyday but you don’t even know their name.  Today is the day to make a friend near and far.

To all of our friends, we at the Hotel Thompson would like to say thank you for being our friend – happy friendship day.  And to those that don’t know us yet, Happy Friendship Day.  May we get to know you better today and in the future!

 Who will YOU say hello friend to today?

National Parent’s Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

Today, July 23rd is National Parents Day.  Everyone has a parent – 🙂  Today is a special day to honor your mother and father – biological or adopted.  I know Bacon appreciates the time he spent with his biological mother and father.  If it wasn’t for them, he wouldn’t have the great parents he has today.  Bacon’s biological parents wished nothing but the best for him and I think he has it here at the Hotel Thompson with his human mom/dad.

All of us here at the Hotel Thompson are very lucky to have mom/dad.  There’s so much love!

Today, National Parents Day, brings the real meaning of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  Spend some time with your parents doing something fun and most important showing them how much they are loved and appreciated.

Happy Birthday Hemi

20130624-194724.jpg

This post goes out to my brother Hemingway – Hemi for short. He is a lot of things here at the Hotel Thompson.

He is my brother.

He is my friend.

He is the master cat.

He is mom/dads oldest.

I talk about him a lot here on my blog. Mostly about him using his ginormous paw to slap me on the rump – snorts. But really, today is his birthday. Today he turns the big 13 years old. Happy birthday Hemi.

20130624-195359.jpg

And just remember Hemi, with your age – snorts –

you might want to cut back on spanking this oinker.

Just sayin’

PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud!)

Oh friends, did you know that mommy/daddy adopted Hemi and his brother Tybee when they were three weeks old?  They barely had their eyes open and had just started walking – I guess you could say that was walking.  Their little tails were like a piece of yarn – 🙂  They had gotten picked up by Animal Control and taken to the shelter.  Mom and dad saved them both and brought them home.  They are such softies when it comes to us four legged animals, you know 🙂

 

 

And special thank you to Phenny across the pond who sent me and my brother Houdini some birthday goodies.  We are sending you lots of meow’s, hogs and snout kisses ❤

Journey with Friends – Week 21

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Sunday, May 21, 2017 –  Finally a day that I could somewhat rest.  I did get my circles filled on my Apple i-Watch.  I’ll be honest with you.  It was definitely a challenge today.  I finally just had to break down, put Houdini in his stroller and take a walk around our block in our neighborhood.  Of course, we went right by Nana’s who lives up the street so we had to stop so Houdini could say hello.  It was a miserable walk though – so hot outside!  I’m afraid that when summer finally kicks in, I’m going to be one sweaty mommy!  Miles Moved: 1.71

Monday, May 22, 2017 –  Well – LOL – my plans were to get up early this morning and hit my treadmill.  It didn’t work out that way though.  I had a hard night last night sleeping with pain.  Pain didn’t want to go away no matter what medicine I took or what white noise I had in the bedroom.  Nothing helped so I didn’t really go to sleep until 5AM and the anipal clocks go off at 6:30AM.  So, as soon as I got to work, I did my walk outside.  Really muggy because we have rain coming our way sometime today/tomorrow.  But I was able to talk to a girlfriend while I walked which was wonderful

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 –  Sleep still escapes me.  Darn the RA in my hip.  I can not find relief.  I can walk through the pain but trying to sleep and feeling the thud-thud-thud of the pain does not help.  I will try to treat myself well tonight before bed and see if that helps.  Miles Moved: 2.40

Wednesday, May 24, 2017 –   Finally, I’m exhausted enough that I slept like a baby last night.  On the other hand, I slept so hard that I talked in my sleep all night and according to my husband was looking for my sandwich in the sheets – LOL.  Talking in my sleeps beats walking in my sleep which I also have been known to do.  Never a boring moment here at the Hotel Thompson – that is for sure! Miles Moved: 2.81

Thursday, May 25, 2017 –  I’m tweaking my food intake starting today.  I want to see the scales move as well.  This walking is doing some amazing things to my legs and butt but come on scales play nice to me 🙂  Miles Moved: 2.17

Friday, May 26, 2017 –   I’ll be honest with you. There are some days that I want to sleep in. Some days that I want to go to bed early. And some days that I just don’t want to work out. I’m like everyone else. What motivates me?  Knowing that I want to be healthier. Of all things in life, that is my goal. Miles Moved: 2.40

Saturday, May 27, 2017 –   Today was awesome. I made Jim go walking with me. That way he sees and feels first hand how I do. Heck, I think he enjoyed it. Miles Moved: 1.43


Thoughts for the week: Me and Jim were talking tonight about our new way of living. It’s funny how our lives have changed. Now we eat to live instead of living to eat. It’s funny how we have changed these past course of months. 


This week walked: 15.69

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  249.64

Just an interesting tidbit of information. I’ve walked almost 250 miles this year so far. To get to Tybee Island, it is 256 miles. So I’ve almost walked 👣 to our beautiful place in the sun. Fun fact, huh.  ❤️
