Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 9

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different.  We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest.  So if you miss a day, you can catch up.  Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.

And don’t worry, you can always hold my hoof. 


I’m telling  you friends, mom/dad came home late last night.  We were all so glad here at the Hotel Thompson.  It hasn’t rained here in so long.  Everything has just been so fine.  The moment mom/dad goes away, of course it has to pour.  Of course the electricity has to go out.  Of course someone would send us anonymous outrageous texts.  Of course.  Seriously who have I pissed off?  Who have any of us pissed off?

And mom/dad came home, but something is weird with them.  They are awfully secretive.  Shaking my head.  Things are off kilter here at the Hotel Thompson.

Okay not funny.  Whoever is doing this, needs stop now.

The rain started again last night around midnight.  That’s right.  Straight from the hells of hot Summer and let’s jump into the rainy nights of winter.  Fall where are you?  Mother Nature – what drugs are you taking?

We were all in the living room together.  Finally the electricity had come back on and we were watching Jeff Dunham on the comedy channel.  How could one possibly be scared of a man talking to himself with his hand up a dummies butt?  Right?

And then all of our phones went off that we received text messages – all at the same time anonymous of course – with this lovely picture.  We all looked at the basement door like yeah right and ran to my bedroom.  That’s where camped out the rest of the night.  This staying by ourselves is crap.  Yep I said it.  Crap!  And Hemi was with us and his fur was standing up on edge.  It can’t be him, can it?

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 3

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement.

Snorts – OMP – the Hotel Thompson all to ourselves.  OMP – it’s going to be a blast.  The food, the unlimited internet time, the endless phone calls and television time.  Squeals with piggy excitement.  We will all have our spots – Hemi in the big bed, Houdini in my bedroom and me in the living room.  We will all have our own televisions – I’m so excited!  I can finally watch all of my ghost shows without them being edited by mom/dad.  It will be a blast.

I have to work on my ‘needs list’ for nana when she comes.  You know like the basics – Cheerios, animal crackers, bananas, apples, grapes, my salad mix – you know all of the important stuff.  And we can’t forget my popcorn – oh no.  We *have* to have our popcorn.  So there I was working on my list on my computer pounding on my keyboard when the internet started doing something stupid.  It would go out and then my screen wold flash and then it would come back.

Gulps.  And then I got this Haunted Connection message – what.the.cream.cheese was this about?!  A ghost is interfering with my internet connection.  Are you kidding me?!  This has to be the makings of Hemi.  There is no way the Hotel Thompson has a ghost or is haunted.  Yeah – it’s Hemi.  I’m not saying a word and I’m going to act like nothing is wrong.  It has to be that trouble maker the cat.

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 2

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement.

Barks!  Us all alone in the house.  I’m so excited my tail won’t stop wagging.  After the ‘family meeting’, we all ran to Bacon’s room for our own little anipal meeting.  We can’t let the humans know how excited we are.  We will rock this house, stay up as long as we want, eat what we want and watch anything we want on television.  OMD – it will be a blast.  I call Animal Planet.

Meow – I just want to be left alone on the big bed.  I may need help setting my number on the Select Comfort to a happy 60 – that number is purfect for my spine.  Houdini – there is enough televisions in this house that we all can watch what we want.  I gotta see me some Jackson Galaxy.  That man thinks he is the cat whisperer.  He is so wrong.  Man will never rules us cats – ever.  Meows.

Oinks – We gotta set a plan in motion guys.  When nana visits, we gotta make sure she leaves all of our goodies out and makes popcorn.  I call the television in the living room.  I just love stretching out on the chaise.  That thing was made for my curvy body.  And the ottoman next to it holds my laptop.  OMP – I can spend hours on the computer and there’s no one to tell me to get off.  I may have died and gone to heaven.  But guys, we can’t be too happy in front of mom/dad.  You know we gotta make sure they think we will be miserable and miss them – as if – snorts with piggy laughter.  And don’t worry, I have dad’s credit card number.  We can order pizza and have it delivered.  That kid on Home Alone will have nothing on us!

Bacon’s Spooktoberfest – Day 1

BACON’s SPOOKTOBERFEST

Welcome my friends to October 1, 2018 – we all know what that means.  It’s time for Bacon’s Spooktoberfest!  A month full of things that go bump in the middle of the night.  The strange noises that vibrate through the house.  The kind of eerie creepiness that settles in that you just want to run to your room and hide under your bed… Shivers.  I almost scared myself.  So friends stay tuned to my blog for excitement. This year, we are doing things a little different.  We are writing a continuous story for 31 days of Bacon’s Spooktoberfest.  So if you miss a day, you can catch up.  Have a fun and scary month sweet friends.

There we all were – all of us anipals – me, Houdini and Hemi.  It was time for the ‘family meeting’ here at the Hotel Thompson.  Us anipals translated ‘family meeting’ into who left the fur ball on the pillow Hemi or who has been eating the cat food Houdini to the dreaded Bacon you need to slow down from flying through the house kind of meetings.  These meetings were always about what we can do to improve the dynamics here at the Hotel Thompson.  Rolls piggy eyes.  I’m sure you can relate – boring – yawns.

We were settled in the living room when mom/dad walked in demanding our attention.  But that’s when it turned weird.  Mom brought popcorn to the meeting.  All of us anipals love popcorn.  Hey, something is not right.  We all gathered our clusters of popcorn, started snacking and listening to mom/dad.  Dad was talking.  Now that’s weird.  Usually it’s mom during the ‘family meetings’.

“Kids, we have some news that you might be a little upset at first but before you get upset, think of this time as an adventure”, dad then stopped and looked at mom before continuing.  “Me and mom are going out for a couple of days this coming weekend.  We are going to leave on Friday and come back Sunday.  We think you are old enough not to be housed out to everyone.  This time, nana will come and check on you to feed you but we are going to let you stay here in your home…. by yourselves.”

Us anipals just looked at each other in shock.  What do you mean, leave us alone?  Like all alone – no parental guardianship?  PAWTY!!  I mean, that’s a shame.  I’m sure we will get along somehow.  Secretly us anipals were high fiving each other behind our backs.   Gotta make it look good though – sad looks on all of our faces and of course the needy hugs and lap time for sure.

Cheese Pizza Day!

 

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

 .

.

Today, September 5th is Cheese Pizza Day – YAY!  That’s what this squirrel is talking about.  Who doesn’t like pizza – especially cheese pizza?  Do you remember the movie Home Alone?  What was Kevin’s favorite pizza?  CHEESE PIZZA.  The basics of a wonderful pizza with all of that gooey cheesy awesomeness!  Pizza has to be one of the most popular dinner meals there is – it’s quick and easy.  Whether you make it yourself from scratch, with a little help from the store in a crust or delivery and/or pick up.  It can be thick crust, deep dish or thin crust.  What do you like?  At the Hotel Thompson, they prefer stuffed crust – with extra cheese.  Licks lips and gets plate ready to go see if I can ‘borrow’ a slice or two for my family 🙂  chitter-chatter – It’s what I do as a squirrel.

So tonight to celebrate – What do you want on your pizza?

Dear Bacon

 
Dear Bacon – We are all trying to do everything we can this time of the year to make more money for Christmas.  I’m working on chaperoning humans around that kind of party too much.  Hey, it’s just one of those things of giving and caring you know.  And don’t worry.  Those that I pick up don’t remember me driving them anywhere let alone the money I take out of their wallet – barks!  Signed Duber

Dear Duber – Dude that is an awesome service.  And you are right, no one will remember the great service that you are rendering.  Stay safe my pal and drive between the lines!


 Dear Bacon – It’s going to get cold soon in these parts.  I gotta make sure we have enough wood for the fireplace to keep the house nice and toasty.  When the humans go to work, so do I!  But don’t worry, safety first with this ax.  Signed Lineman of the County

Dear Lineman of the County – AWESOME!  Bravo – bravo – bravo my friend.  That is some thinking of ahead to make sure you stay warm.  And if the humans stay warm – that means you get more play time and treats.  That is a most excellent idea.

P.S.  You know where I can get some of those boots in a pig size 3?


Dear Bacon –  Talk about a hart day.  I’m telling you beautiful life is so hard some days keeping up with all of the activities this time of the year.  There’s the hairballs to fuss up.  There’s the dogs to keep in line.  There’s the hiding from the yearly Christmas card that goes out.  There’s the singing at midnight to be scheduled.  There’s the pouncing on the keyboards when the humans want computer time.  Sigh – see – it’s a hard life being this good.  I just want to kick back in my recliner at the end of the day with a glass of wine.  How do you keep your sanity?  Signed Kitty Pinot Noir

Dear Kitty Pinot Noir – WOW – You make happiness look so good my little purr friend.  When you put everything down the way you did, your life is active.  I myself try to take many, MANY naps during the day.  This keeps me sprite and ready for mom when she returns home at the end of the day from her worky place.  Cause we all know that when the homes get home, it’s game time!


Dear Bacon – It’s that time of the year!  Finally all of the great movies come on television that scream HOLIDAYS.  This is me from over the weekend.  I looked at the television guide that morning and saw that my movie of the season was coming on that night.  Got in my jammies, took out my contacts and had the popcorn ready for my netflix and chill – HOME ALONE.  Dude, can that Kevin scream or what?  I absolutely love that movie.  It just shouts Merry Christmas!!  Signed Dog Alone

Dear Dog Alone – OMP!  That’s one of my mom’s favorites too.  She says it’s not Christmas time until she watches that movie on television.  What a coincidence you two have.  I say go for it my friend and make the holidays happen for you.  I myself love to watch Rudolph every year.  That is my Christmas show to start the season.  Enjoy and be safe!


REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU.  Please continue to send me your letters and pictures to my email.  Thanks!
