Dear Bacon

20130203-195455.jpg
Dear Bacon – I heard me and your mom have something in common. We both like oatmeal pies from Little Debbie. What? You thought I was going to say we both like you didn’t you? Ha! Signed Pux

Dear Pux – Funny one there my friend. Don’t give up your day job. Oh that’s right. You only work one day out of the year. Who’s saying ha! now? Snort

Dear Bacon – Your looking awfully cute these days. Such a nice physique. You must really take good care of yourself. Signed Future Ms Bacon Your Biggest Fan

Dear Fan – You are so sweet to think of me. Thank you so much for your kind comments. You know we would never work. You live out in nature and well I don’t like it. It would be like the new version of Green Acres. But thank you my dear.

Dear Bacon – They tell me that I’m too kind hearted. I let the purr things in this establishment walk all over me. You would do the same thing, wouldn’t you? Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny – Of course I would… for the baby purr things. Now the older ones, that’s another story – snort.  But there’s nothing like being the baby purr things personal jungle gym. Spoil them rotten is what I say.

Dear Bacon – I feel like the humans are mocking me. Something is not right with my house guests here. Signed Corky

Dear Corky – WOW. Your humans do have a sense of humor there with your house guests. I would find it oddly disturbing. LOL

The Plan Is Set –

The cookies have been made – chocolate chip.  I’ve heard that’s Santas favorites… well that’s what my dad says.  You know it is a funny thing – snorts.  That’s dad’s favorite kind of cookie too.  They have a lot in common.  I have three cookies set out.  Again, that’s what daddy says would be the perfect amount because of all of the other cookies he will eat in the world on this big night.  Dad’s a smart man when he’s not throwing himself into drainage embankments – snorts.  And by the way, thanks for all of the special thoughts with daddy.  He is feeling so much better now – just in time for Christmas.

Me and the purr things have gotten special permission from mom/dad to stay up tonight in the living room to await for Santa Claus.  They say he won’t come as long as we are awake but I think we can trick him.

And I’m still holding on to that one really important thing on wanted for Christmas.  Nah, not the hippo.  Mom discussed the pros and cons of that with me.  This is the one thing I really, really, REALLY want for Christmas under the Mickey Mouse lamp post.  My dream piggy 🙂 swoon

We’ll see what happens.  I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas my friends.  I love you bunches and bunches!!  XOXO – Bacon

Dear Bacon

20130601-000719.jpg
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 SoSealFunny

Dear SoSealFunny,

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. 🙂

20130601-000735.jpg
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.

20130601-000744.jpg
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.

20130601-000813.jpg
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.

 

Thanks my friends for submitting your pictures and questions.  Keep them coming!  Send your questions and pictures to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com

Dear Cocco – Special Edition

 My great friend Cocco at http://myminipetpig.com/ has stepped in to do a special edition of Dear Cocco.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  That little Cocco is a very pigtalented little oinker.  I think together, we could rule the world.  Big thanks out to Cocco and his mom Katie for this special edition!  We hope that you will do it again in the future ((HOGS AND KISSES))

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20130326-133733.jpg

Dear Cocco,

We know you piggies are considered the fourth smartest animals around but did you know that we hamsters are very talented?  We have formed a musical band and we are pretty sure you and your piggy friends couldn’t do that.  Signed The Musical Trio

Dear Musical Trio,

We actually don’t need to form a band.  We are a nonstop one-man band kind of animal.  We can squeal, screech, snort, bark and kiss.  We are innately musical so we don’t even require any instruments.  Ha.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20130326-133722.jpg

Dear Cocco,

Did you know that cats can dance?  We are extremely graceful and actually invented several moves.  We are wondering if you can guess what dance we are doing.  Signed The Stealthy Cats

Dear Stealthy Cats,

Why thank you for enlightening me.  I wasn’t thinking you were dancing at all.  I was thinking you were in the midst of a cat fight.  Now that I know you were dancing, I am quite sure you were doing the Cha Cha.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20130326-133702.jpgDear Cocco,

Us dogs know revenge.  My humans went on a walk and didn’t think I could make it the whole duration since I’m “getting old” so they left me home.  Their mistake was leaving dinner to cool on the counter.  These old bones jumped up and gobbled it all down.  I’m feeling pretty smug.  Signed One Smug Pug

 

Dear One Smug Pug,

I say good for you.  You put your humans in their place.  I bet you taught them a lesson and they will take you along next time!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20130326-133650.jpgDear Cocco,

Hippos love having their teeth cleaned.  Trainers think we are just naturally obedient when it comes to teeth cleaning but the truth is our teeth love the massage.  They squirt the water in, tickle our gums and then tell us “good job”.  Did you know we hippos eat as much muddy grass as we can just to get those silly humans to give us a tooth massage?  Signed The Toothy Hippo

Dear Toothy Hippo,

A tooth massage sounds like good clean fun.  I’ll avoid one at all costs though and leave the enjoyment to your kind.  The only kind of massage I like is of the belly variety.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20130326-133712.jpg

Dear Cocco,

These wild flowers are making me a wweeeee bit giddy!  Hehehe, come have a sniff.  You’ll be feeling silly in no time!  Signed Goofy Giggler

Dear Goofy Giggler,

I’m on my way, save some flowers for me!
