Happy Birthday Bashful!!

 

 OMP (oh my pig!)  Can you believe that it’s been FOUR years since Bashful came to live with me here at the Hotel Thompson?  This is him all snuggled in transport the first time that I saw him – aaww.  Wasn’t he all cute and innocent in his straw bed? 

And to think of all of the places he  has been in the world?  He’s going to need extra pages in his passport book soon ❤

So, today, let’s all wish our little international rolling stone a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

This Special Delivery Rocks

OH FRIENDS – Wonder no more. Check out where my little Bashful is and the adventures have already begun! ❤ XOXO – Bacon

Last Friday, my little sister and I received a very special delivery from our sweet little piggy friend Bacon. (If you already know Bacon, then you know what a special little pig he is. If you don’t know Bacon, click here to link to his blog. I promise you’ll fall in love.) To say that our box from Bacon sent both of us into a tizzy would be quite the understatement. It was packed full of everything a girl could ever want.

Tallulah and I were especially obsessed over the pink piggy toy. We spent quite a bit of time trying to dismember him, but he’s tough and managed to survive . . . at least for the first round.

As fabulously fun as the pink piggy toy and the fancy treats were, there was something even more special in that little box from Bacon. Meet Bashful, Bacon’s pet rock. As…

And He’s Off Again –

Oh my friends – we had the best party yesterday for Bashful.  He came home on Monday from the United Kingdom – just in time for my birthday, mom/dad’s anniversary and for National Collect Rocks Day.  We’ve had a time talking about his adventures, some of the behind the scenes action that took place and getting to know Speedy Rock.

But now Bashful is off again to parts unknown.  Well, not unknown to us here at the Hotel Thompson and his lucky host family – snorts.  Where will he end up at – who will be hosting him next – what adventures will he have this time?

.

Will it be here or there?  Where will he roll up to next?  What friends will he be visiting?  What gifts will he be bringing?

These are all important questions of the day.  So where do you think my little Bashful will end up this time?  Any guesses?

Guess Who Came Home?!

IMG_0597

 Jumping all around and squealing.  Guess who came home yesterday. Go ahead – guess.  Can you guess?  Do you know?  Do you want a hint?  Go ahead guess.  BASHFUL my international rolling stone.  He’s been spending time with my buddy Speedy in the United Kingdom the past couple of months.  He has told all of us some awesome stories of adventures he had with Speedy.  They danced and boogied to the radio.  Played in the garden together.  Met some ponies and some girls ❤  And of course some things that happened in the United Kingdom – stays in the United Kingdom – snorts.

The mailman delivered a box to the steps of the Hotel Thompson and once we opened it, we found a booty of goodies.  Bashful dressed like a pirate.  Pirate coins, notebooks and a sleeping bag!  Can you believe the goodies?!

IMG_0595.JPGAnd you know what?  Bashful came home with a friend – cheers, screams and snorts.  May we present to you Speedy Rock to the left.  Awesome – spectacular – fun – amazing.  Look at the resemblance to Speedy – all the way to the ears to the bushy tail.  OMP (oh my pig!)  We were snorting with delight here.

And the gals – Princess Coralena, Virginia, Rockelle and Koishi were falling all over him and his accent… or was it his eye patch?  I think they are all in ❤ and hey – what’s there not to be in love with, right?

Thanks Speedy for showing my tyke a most excellent adventure.  And I guess that brings up the next question.  Just where in the world will Bashful show up next?  And to those that have signed up on the list to host Bashful, don’t give up.  We are slowly working down the list.  It might take a while, but it will get to you.

What Has Bashful Been Doing Lately?

Bashful is still visiting my buddy Speedy in the United Kingdom.  He is having the bestest of all time.  He’s been hanging out with Pebbles – Speedy’s pet rock friend.  They are awesome.  And Speedy is still walking his humans on their leash – snorts – that kills me!  I absolutely ❤ it!

Speedy took Bashful back to the Cadover Bridge.  It is so beautiful there!  You gotta check out their story and see the gorgeous pictures.  And while you are there, check out Speedy walking his humans – 🙂

There’s plenty of pictures – and you can see Bashful exercising – shocker.  Guess he’s got to maintain that physique for the ladies huh?  Tell Speedy Bacon sent you over to check out his page.

Have a great morning my friends!

Can You Believe It’s Been A YEAR!?

WOW – Can you believe it’s been one year since my little international pet rock Bashful started traveling the world?  It seems like he’s been doing it forever but it’s been one year – 365 days today – that he boarded his first flight and took off to parts unknown.  He’s become such a little explorer!

And don’t worry folks if you signed up to host my little rock, you are on a waiting list.  I keep up with.  If you want to be put on the waiting list, shoot me over an email at baconthompson@gmail.com

And for those that have been following his adventures everywhere in the world, do you remember his first place that he visited?

Oh, you want a hint huh?  Okay.  Do you recognize this butt from anyone?  Snorts.

Snorts – oinks – squeals.  I couldn’t resist.  My little Bashful’s very first trip was to see Easy in France.  Do you remember this picture of his adventure?

He has been all over the world traveling, racking up airline miles, having wonderful adventures, meeting new people and bringing smiles to the world.  Thank you so much my friends for showing my little tyke a great time and being part of these experiences!

Do You Want to See Something that Will Make YOU Smile?

Oh friends.  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  We did nothing really.  Well okay.  Mom and dad went on a little field trip that I will post about this afternoon but other than that – nada.  But, this morning I saw a video that will absolutely BLOW your mind.  It will make you oohh and aaww.  We have watched it here at the Hotel Thompson repeatedly.

It’s from my good friend Speedy.  You *have* to jump over to his page and watch the video.  He’s on a leash!  And he likes it!  And yeah, Bashful is in the video too but this time, it’s all about Speedy because he is simply AMAZING!  So, check him out here my friends.

AND while you are watching the video of the beautiful countryside – check out the horses in it too.  I want to live there!  I wonder if I can mail myself to Speedy?  A couple of air holes in the box should do it, you think?  Snorts
