How in the world does mom do this? How does she convince daddy to do the things he does and in what seems like he enjoys it!? You see mom hasn’t thought about the cloud. You know the cloud that saves all of the pictures on your Apple devices in the house – snorts with piggy laughing. I don’t even have to get on mom’s iPhone anymore. I can check the cloud from my iPad and see what she and dad have been up to. But don’t tell her okay – this is just our little secret. I found these shots of daddy picking out his new fashion wardrobe. Shaking piggy head. WOW – that’s the first word that comes to my piggy mind. Which one of these glorious sweaters do you like?
Sometimes I wonder if my humans fell on their heads repeatedly as small children. Really I do. You see a couple of weekends ago during mom’s marathon shopping spree, they took pictures and a video of something that I just found this past weekend. Mom always has the coolest pictures and such on her iPhone. In fact there is no telling what you will find on that phone. So there I was, reviewing her pictures and came across a video. Oh My Piggy Heavens. After watching it a half of dozen times – yes it’s that addictive, I had to ask mom about it.
Well, they were at Wally World (for most people that would be Walmart) – snorts. They saw this item on a shelf and knowing my dad he just had to see what it was and how it worked. They pushed a button and the next thing you know they are laughing like two hysterical kids in the toy department. Mom said she almost peed on herself. You know it’s good huh?
Of course when I saw it, I thought about twerking team captain Fozzie from down under. Why do you ask. Let me show you the video. And please tell me – do your parents do anything crazy like this? Snorts with piggy laughter.
And P.S. Please take note – that is a lady that walks by laughing at mom/dad with the twerking teddy.
Sometimes I’ll admit it – my mom/dad scare me. No, not the BOO kind of scare. The kind of scare when I go looking for mom’s pictures on her iPhone kind of scare. Take in point the picture below. Mom/dad what the heck were you thinking? See, this is the kind of trouble that happens when mom/dad go out unchaperoned. They don’t need to look for trouble – trouble finds THEM.
Rub Some Butt, Three Little Piggies BBQ Rub, Bone Suckin’ Sauce and Sweet Rub of Mine – really? Do I need to even ask where this ‘stuff’ needs to go? Dad don’t even think about coming my way with any of these bottles in your hand. I may need to ask for an intervention here at the Hotel Thompson. Daddy was too quick to let me know that some of these traveled to our house here. I haven’t seen them and Lord knows I don’t wanna.
Help me? Snorts and Oinks …. while I still can.
NOTE: I know I’m safe my friends. No worries here at the Hotel Thompson. Mommy wouldn’t let anything happen to me for anything in the world. No need to call PETA… yet 🙂
Oh my friends. Have you ever had one of those weekends where you did so very much that you finally just prayed for Monday to get here STAT because of being tired? Can you relate? Mom and dad had one of those weekends. Mom was already feeling slightly under the weather with her flare up. But Sunday night, she could barely walk. But I’m getting ahead of myself. So this is what those two humans of mine did.
Saturday – They got up for breakfast early and tried a new restaurant. Yes mom took pictures that I will post soon. They looked good too. After breakfast, they had to go to Kaiser to pick up some prescriptions. Then mom finally got her nails done – which was long needed. Then they went to Petsmart. Trust me, all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson wanted to go to Petsmart. But mom/dad said we couldn’t go because they were running all errands this morning before coming home to crash… which mom did 🙂 So after Petsmart and doing what dad said was ‘buying them out’ – rolls piggy eyes, they went to Wally World – Walmart for those that know the place. Daddy then got a haircut and afterwards, he and mom looked around for some things they needed. So, you see mom/dad did a LOT of walking all over the place. Which normally wouldn’t be bad but with mom’s current flare up situation, it wasn’t good. They left the house this morning around 8AM and didn’t get back home until way after 2PM. Then they had to unload the Jeep and put everything up. That’s a lot of work. With mommy not feeling too well lately, daddy wanted to go someone special for their date night tonight. So they left the house again at 4PM to go to a restaurant that is about 35 miles away.. not just any restaurant though. They have crab legs 🙂 Yum…. not that they brought me any back tonight – snorts.
Sunday – They got up for round 2 of shopping and getting errands done. They got up and went to a local place for breakfast – Cracker Barrel. Afterwards they had to go to a home improvement store named Lowes. Mom had some stuff she needed to return and they had pick up light bulbs and air filters for the Hotel Thompson. Of course, one things leads to another and the next thing they know they have a buggy full of stuff. But some of the things they found my friends – Oh my piggy heavens. I’ll share with you on another post on that – my parents are too hilarious! After dropping off these items at the Hotel Thompson, mom and dad wanted to go to another Wally World location to see if they had something they wanted that the other store didn’t… so off they went again. Not only did they find some things they were looking for but of course they found some more stuff. Did I mention that mommy *hates* shopping? She does. She can’t stand it. So she waits and makes lists and then tries to get everything at once. Silly mom huh?
Afterwards, it was time to do the monthly shopping so off they went to Kroger. Once there, they had to pick up some other medicines they had filled at their pharmacy. Then the major shopping for the Hotel Thompson. And did I mention that mom is a HUGE coupon shopper? She tells us anipals that she has to be so she can’t keep us accustomed to the way we are living. I don’t get it – do you? Mommy keeps up with her grocery list on her iPhone – there is actually an ap for that – snorts. So when we are out of something, she adds it to the list for the next trip. She also keeps up with her coupons on her iPhone. Mom says the one thing about shopping with coupons is organization and that it takes time. So they were at the grocery store for over two hours! Daddy told mommy at one time that just because they have room in the Jeep now doesn’t mean she had to fill him to the rim in this one trip – snorts – silly daddy. But then daddy also said that thank goodness they had Casper the new Jeep because everything they got would NOT have fit into Albert the Smart car. See all of the stuff in the back of Casper. You want to take a gander of the cost? Now mom/dad grocery shop majorly every 2-3 months. They will go every other week just to get milk and bread. The total cost of this shopping spree came out to be $178.00 – she then handed the cashier all of her coupons and told him to ‘make it rain savings’. Snorts – that’s my mommy. After mom’s coupons and such, it came down to a final price of $127.00 – mom said even the cashier was shocked and amazed at that. All of this for two somewhat adults, one pooch, two purr things and of course me who daddy says eats like a small child – snorts.
Then they came home to unload everything. Now mom has a great conclusion to this. She says, you shop all over the store and put things in your buggy. Then you have to unload everything at the register to be rung up. Then you have to load everything in your car to take home. Then you get home and have to take everything into the house and THEN put everything up. What a crap play huh? But daddy knew that mommy wasn’t feeling to good so he parked her in the kitchen and he brought everything into the house for her… aaww – that was sweet. Mom put everything up and crashed on the couch afterwards.
There she was medicated trying to get some rest while waiting for my Auntie Tina and cousins Savannah and Maverick to make it home. See they are visiting for a couple of days and was due to arrive at Nanas Sunday night. Mom finally got the call and her and dad then went to pick them all up for dinner. They went to a great pizza place and talked, laughed and got caught up. Afterwards, Auntie Tina and my cousins came to the Hotel Thompson to visit all of us anipals. That was great fun! We are all older now and loved the extra attention. And a certain piggy may or may not have done some cute things for that extra attention – just sayin’ . When they were done visiting, mom took them and Houdini up to Nana’s for a short visit. She was only there for a little over 30 minutes and then came home. After doing the medicines, for the week, she crashed pretty hard. Who cards that it was only 7PM, right?
So you see, we are all kind of excited that this past weekend is done. Completed. Over. Finished. All but one little itsy bitsy thing. What you ask? Snorts – I’m glad you asked. Tonight mom/dad are taking Houdini to a new groomer. This should be fun. Their appointment is at 6PM, right after mom’s work. Houdini doesn’t know yet. I’ll keep you posted on the results my friends. And one little question, is it the weekend yet? Snorts
I was so shocked myself. I couldn’t believe it and I heard it my friends. Mommy was at the worky place and I was in my bedroom taking a nap. That’s when it happened. I heard a girls voice. I was like, “That’s not mommy”. I put my head to my bedroom door and listened. What the cream cheese? Daddy was in the front room talking to a girl!
Of course I eavesdropped. I think mom would understand in this situation. I mean this is concerning family and family is first… right?
I heard daddy ask, “Siri, who’s your daddy?” That’s the hoochies name – Siri? What kind of name is that? But get this my friends. This Siri chick responded, “You are.” WTP (what the pig)!? This trumpet called Siri is flirting with my dad? Is she crazy? That’s my daddy! She can’t be doing this.
And then I heard daddy ask, “Siri, why did the chicken cross the road?” I tell you my daddy is strange. Why would he be asking this cornflake this question? But again get this – this Siri chick replied, “I do not know the motivations of chickens.” What a smarty!
Then daddy said, “Siri, you’re the best.” Piggy down – THUD. What has daddy done? And Siri said, “Thank you. So are you.” NNNOO!!! This has got to stop. Who is this scarlet?
I heard laughing from daddy. And then daddy said, “Siri, tell me a joke.” Siri said, “The past, the future and the present walked into a bar. It was a tense situation.” Daddy rolled with laughter. I don’t get it.
I couldn’t take it anymore. I had to put my hooves down and take my daddy back before mommy found out about this situation. I squealed like I’ve never squealed before – at the top of my lungs and scratching my bedroom door. That got dad’s attention. He came running to my bedroom and opened my door. I ran out of that room like it was on fire straight into the front room to find said hooch. Nothing. No one. Nada. Where did she go? I heard her. I know she was there. I checked everywhere. And still nothing.
What’s a pig to do now?
NOTE:This post is all in fun. Siri is actually put out by Apple products. Siri is the personal assistant that you can talk to on products such as the i-Pad or i-Phone. You can place phone calls, make appointments, and ask general questions to just about anything.
Oh WOW! I’ve been saying that all weekend – WOW. Sometimes one sees something that they can’t un-see. Then one thinks hard about what they shouldn’t have seen and they can’t stop laughing. This is one of those situations. You might not know this but all of us here at the Hotel Thompson enjoy a good chuckle – shocking huh? Well this past weekend, I happened to stumble across a commercial on You Tube that I just *HAVE* to share… I mean it would only be right of this little oinker to do so. I know after mom and dad watched it, they will never be the same again. They are constantly making comments every time one of us go potty now. Oh dear piggy heavens – the jokes that daddy has come up with after watching this video. Okay. I know. Enough with the foreplay – show you the video. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I have to go potty now – snorts.
Hey my friends – today I’m giving you the answers from mom and dad’s new game that I posted about yesterday. Remember, I showed you a picture to guess but did not give you any clues like how many letters or words the answer was. My deviled Ham side came out to play – snorts. The answer are posted below – how many did you get right? Remember these are the game answers and the game’s way of thinking. Should be interesting.
You have to put on your thinking cap and really look at the pictures. By looking at this picture to the left, you see a man, a boat and a tiger. The conclusion: Life of Pi

Picture 1 –
By looking at the nail and the manicure, you are suppose to get beauty. The lady has a crown so she is a Queen.
The answer – beauty queen.
Picture 2 –
This one took mom and dad a bit to figure out. The number 10 means perfect in this illustration. The umbrella with the rain means storm.
The answer – Perfect Storm

Another one that requires a little thinking. There’s a cat, a dog and a horse with a world looking image. What could it be. Oh – now it’s obvious –
The answer – Animal Planet
Picture 8 –
I leave you with another one that your probable got right. A snake and a set of eyes.
Those parents of mine. Can you say crazy? Can you say they act like teenagers or small children? Rolls piggy eyes. I guess that’s what really keeps them young at heart huh? Mom found this new game for her iPhone. It’s an ap called Guess the Emoji. For those that are on mom’s Facebook page, I’m sure you are familiar with it. Why do you ask? Because when you get stuck on the game, you can ask your friends on Facebook for help. And trust me, mom has done that – snorts.
The premise of the game – they show you pictures and you have to figure out what it means. If you are right, you go to the next picture. If not, you are ‘stuck’ until you figure it out. It’s an awesome game. What’s funny about it are the conversations between mom and dad. See with dad’s limited vision, mom has to explain the pictures to him. Which in itself is almost comical. But on the other hoof, daddy is really good with the game. Also with the game, they do show you how many words the answer is and how many letters. They even give you the available letters at the bottom of the page.
For your entertainment, I thought I would share some of the pictures for you to guess. And no, I’m not showing you how many letters or words the answer is… that’s my little piggy twist – evil huh? Snorts. I will post the answers tomorrow. The first one is to show you an example. Good luck my friends!

You never know what I’m up to here at the Hotel Thompson when mom is at work… or home for that matter. Take for instance this email we shared earlier in the week. I was only trying to help mom out. You can never stop looking for a better opportunity, right? Snorts. Somehow I don’t think she thought I was being helpful. I wonder how she will look in their cute little orange shirts? Then again on the other hoof, she can always bring me home some wings – Yummy!
My messages are in gray – her messages are in blue.
Just imagine you are on a date with your spouse and then your cell phone goes off with a text message. You know by the sound of the ring that it’s from one of your kids. You go to look at it and WOW – it’s a text from ME – Bacon. Who could stay mad at this little oinker for long? Especially when I’m giving you a heads up about free coffee! Mommy is a sucker for coffee.
After mom and dad’s date they did go to Dunkin Donuts. Mommy didn’t get the free coffee. She got the pumpkin white chocolate latte. She said it was delicious. I wouldn’t know because she didn’t give me a taste of it… BUT, she did bring me some donut holes. 🙂
So, that is how you get back on mommy’s good list. She drunk her coffee while I was in her lap getting snuggles. Everything is back to being good at the Hotel Thompson.
Oh, and what? Doesn’t every pig have an iPhone? It’s only the 3G that mom used to have but it still works for these emergency type situations – snorts.
