I saw a special on my television about this island. It’s called Poveglia Island. It was so spooky, foggy at night and mysterious. Would you stay on the island overnight?
Only 4 items you can pick, what would you pick? I think I’ve watched the television series Naked and Afraid too many times. I’ve really thought about this and my picks are:
pot, matches, tent and knife
I could use the knife to filet fish or lobster from the ocean. I could use the matches to light the fire under the pot to cook the fish/lobster. Then I could nap in the tent so I had a break from the sun or rain if it happened. What would you choose and why?
Hello my sweet friends. It’s been a couple of weeks since my last check in here from the Hotel Thompson. We are ALL so glad the renovation is over here. It was amazing and I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the before and after pictures as well as mom’s breakdown of the different phases. I tell you that mother of mine is a scheduler… and a juggler. She kept us all on a strict schedule. Have you see the television shows where they don’t show the home owner the after until it’s finished? That’s what mom/dad did to us anipals here. We all got shipped up the street to Nana’s to spend the night the day of the floor installation. The last thing we remember is the carpet and linoleum. So that Friday after the furniture was delivered, mom came and got us from Nana’s. OMD! Once we got inside of the Hotel Thompson, us anipals couldn’t believe it! It was so new and different. We all thought we were at the wrong house for a bit. So many different changes. We anipals went around and of course had to check things out and mark our territories. So many new things to try out!
Then it happened. Mom told us that we had to be careful of the new flooring and furniture. And of course, daddy put the baby gate back up blocking us from the kitchen. That baby gate is because of Bacon – don’t tell him I told you that. That pig – rolls doggy eyes – he knows how to open the freezer so he can’t go in there anymore. Since he can’t go in there, we can’t go in there. Of course, the cats jump the fence but I’m too little. But when I did get to go in the kitchen to check things out – WOW! I ran and ran and ran around that kitchen island so many times that I got dizzy. It’s so neat!
And of course my favorite piece of furniture is the couch. All of those big puffy pillows – I was in pooch heaven. My personal challenge is to see how many I can knock on the floor before mom/dad realize what I’m doing – barks! And mom’s chaise – WOW! That thing is like a bed for a queen – which my mommy is – 🙂 She keeps this comfy Chinese blankie on it that she wraps up in when she is on it. The other day, I jumped up with her. Yep – see the picture. It was so comfy! And are you wondering what my shirt says? It’s one of my favorites – of course my brother Bacon doesn’t like it but I think that’s what makes it even funnier. The shirt says, “I like bacon on my bacon”. Funny huh?
Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well. Happy weekend!
They always say that grass is always greener on the other side. Well, I stuck my head through the fence to look at the other side. And you know what? It doesn’t look greener. Can you hear what I’m saying pig? It does *not* look greener. Signed Mythbuster Goat
Dear Mythbuster Goat,
Thank you for letting me know that. I’ve always wondered about the grass being greener on the other side. I just never knew what the other side was. Now I do. You’ve helped *me* out so very much.
What? I’m only helping my brother out in getting all of the crumbs on the bottom of the bowl. Really? Cause you know all of the good stuff is on the bottom of the bowl. Honestly. Signed Chef Paw
Dear Chef Paw,
I will take your word for that. Take it from an expert who is used to getting all of his crumbs, it’s much easier just to flip the bowl over. That way, you can get some of the crumbs as well. Just a tip my friend….and thank goodness your brother wasn’t drinking water.
I was having a dream that I was fixing to eat the biggest hot dog in the entire world. It look so delicious. I could almost taste it. Then I woke up cause I bit my paw. What a let down. Do you ever dream of eating food? Signed Dog Dreams
Dear Dog Dreams,
Snorticles. Do I ever have those dreams – snorts. That’s like asking me if I’m hungry. Of course I have those dreams. I can’t say though that I’ve ever tried to eat a paw or hoove. My legs are too short to reach my mouth – thank goodness!That must have been a mighty good dream my friend.
Where are the clothes pins when you need them? Sometimes I just need a few to pin back the wrinkles on my head. That way, maybe my tongue wouldn’t fall out of my mouth when I’m sleeping. You think? Signed Rip Van Pup
Dear Rip Van Pup,
I feel you my friend. I totally feel you. Sometimes when I sleep, everything wonders into their own zipcode. My mom feels the same way. All it means though is you are totally relaxed and comfortable in your environment. That’s a good thing.
Bottoms up! I saw the pictures you had of Bashful at Tybee Island last October. They really intrigued me. I thought I would stick my head in the ocean to see if I could find Sponge Bob and Patrick. I didn’t see them but got a lot of water in my trunk. And by the way, does this ocean make my butt look big? Signed Scubaphant
I’m so sorry little guy. Bashful saw Spongebob at Tybee last year because they were doing a movie on the island. I think afterwards he went back home to Hawaii. But I say, keep looking cause you never know where he might wash up on shore. As far as your butt, it looks just fine. I only wish mine was that cute!
Friends – don’t forget to send your questions and pictures to me at Baconthompson@gmail.com
As you know, my pet rock Bashful has been traveling and has been visiting Misaki overseas. He is currently on the way home and it can’t be a minute too soon.
Last night, I was awakened by some noises in my bedroom that I share with the rock clan. Yep, I can admit that the rock clan – Princess Coralena, Virginia, Manny and Rockelle – have a little corner in my bedroom that they hang out.
At first, I didn’t know what the sound was so I layed in bed listening. Then I heard it again, “Oh Bashful.” Then I heard lots of giggling. WTP (What the pig) was going on? I opened one of my eyes and looked over towards the rock clan. It seems that Princess Coralena was having a dream about Bashful. Oh Dear Lord. I so do not need to hear this – snorts.
I got out of bed and stumbled over to her corner. I gently woke her up and we talked about her dream. It seems that Princess Coralena has really been missing Bashful. She told that she had a dream about him and they were lost on a deserted island alone. She painted quite the little picture for this oinker. So much so, that I came up with this picture in my head –
I think Bashful may be in trouble when he gets home. Now, he has two gorgeous rocks fighting for his attention. That’s right. I said two. Princess Coralena was playing hard rock with him before not wanting to say she ‘liked’ him. Then, he came home with Rockelle from Australia who was very up front with her feelings for him. I do hope by the time Bashful gets home that he decides what is best for him with these two ladies.
What do you think he should do? I really don’t know what to tell him as far as advice.
