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!
Hey my friends. How did you do last week? I’m still bouncing right along trying to cook more at home, eating better and walking when I can. Sometimes I get too focused on something and overdo. Do you know what I mean? Since a couple of weeks ago when I tweaked my way of eating a bit and not pushing myself so much to do walking, I’m feeling and doing better. Funny how that works huh? But sometimes there are days still when the little devil sits on your shoulder and says, “Go ahead, eat that chocolate. It doesn’t matter.” I think we all fight the devils here/there in our life. Let’s all of us get the things off of our chest that need to be out there.
. I will not let people get me down. I will not cringe over the little things of extra work on my desk, more bills that need to be paid, kids schedules or deadlines. I will not play your high school games. I will not let the devil overtake my life. I will not curse in traffic. Today I will put my head up high. I will be me – take it or leave it.
Now my friends, how was your week? Do tell and list some of the things that will *not* get you down this week ❤

Mark your calendars my friend. Bacon’s Show and Tell for January is scheduled for Friday, February 26th, 2016.
This month – the job is on you my fellow anipals. Here is your mission. Go and look on your humans camera roll on their phone, their photo albums, their high school albums for that matter, their senior pictures, prom pictures – any picture you can find of your human. The more embarrassing the better – snorts with piggy laughter. Meet back here in February and let’s have a blast of a time laughing at our humans for a change!

Welcome back my friends to the reveal of the five statements. Which one did you guess was true? Did you pick it right away or did it take some work in thinking about each one? Just what kind of person is my mommy? Let’s see if you got it right.
Statement #01 – Mom got a sport letter and award in Track when she was in high school. Winner-Winner. Mommy actually was the assistant to the track coach in high school for two years and kept the scores for all meets. This is how she gained her letter and award. Snorts – you thought she ran didn’t you? If mom ran, she says she would have two black eyes and two broken knees. Now that is hilarious! AND who was the first person to guess it correctly – my brother Easy. He knows my mommy!
Statement #02 – Mommy loves Cabbage Patch Kids. Really? Mommy despised Cabbage Patch Kids. If you are a true follower, you have read her story about the demise of her *cherished* Cabbage Patch Kid in a fierce game of Cowboys and Indians – snorts with piggy laughter.
Statement #03 – Mom graduated with a C average in high school. C student – oh no. Mommy was an honor graduate – straight A’s. In fact, some would say she was a nerd! The shock of that huh?
Statement #04 – Mom’s first pet she ever had was a snail named Igor. This would have been cool but again no. Mom’s first pet was a dog named Beast.
Statement #05 – Mom and dad met when mom was working her pole at her second job. Now I had to throw this in there. Of course it didn’t happen this way. But once, mom/dad went to a book store when they were dating. Mom wrote a check and the lady asked for her work number. Daddy did tell the lady it was the Cheetah Club (which was a strip joint in Atlanta, Georgia). The lady replied, “Yeah, right. I don’t think anyone with Holly Hobby checks would be a stripper!”. Now *that’s* funny.

Happy Friday my friends – we made it another week! This week while surfing the net in my bedroom, I came across this poem titled I Was Dying. I think it was so appropriate these days where we can be in such a rush with daily life that we don’t stop and smell the roses. I hope that this touches you the way it did us here at the Hotel Thompson. Happy Friday and let’s live some this weekend!
