Inner Peace Award

Squeal! Happy piggy dance – shake it to the left – shake it to the right – I’m so excited!! Angel Whisper gave me this award last week on 05/20/2014.  Isn’t it awesome?!  So unique and lovely!!  Thank you so much my kind sweet friends!

The only ‘rule’ for this award is to write a short piece on why you are accepting it.  That’s easy enough so here I go.

Life is too short.  Life is too short to be stressed…to be worried… to be depressed.  There’s one way to overcome all of that.  Laugh.  Laughter brings inner peace and smile to your face.  If I make one person smile… or pee in their pants a little with laughter… then my job is well done.

For those that do not have this award, please accept it.  I’m giving this award to ALL of my friends here on my blog.  You deserve a little inner peace today 🙂  Much love to all of you – XOXO – Bacon

Snorts – Do You Hate Your Job?

 OMP (oh my pig)!  I gotta share this.  Do you hate your job?  Wish you didn’t have to do certain things at work?  Mommy was having a bad day last week.  She loves her job.  She just got what she called ‘overwhelmed’.  Well, me and dad went on line to the great cyberspace to find something that would (1) make her laugh and (2) show her what a great job she really does have.

We found this and it was perfect.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did here at the Hotel Thompson.

Texts from Bacon

 

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.

Bashful Fun

While Bashful was on vacation with mom/dad at Tybee Island, he had the best of time.  Do you remember that little breakfast place that mom/dad liked so much called The Breakfast Club?  Well, Bashful fell in love with it as well.  He wanted to get a job there so he could stay on the island forever.  He went for an interview but well he didn’t talk too much and there really wasn’t a need for a traveling international stone so he didn’t get the busboy job – darn.

So instead he overlooked the kitchen help at the grill as they prepared mom/dad’s meal the last morning they were on vacation.  Don’t let his stoic look fool you.  He was worse than Gordon Ramsey from Hell’s Kitchen to those workers at the grill – snorts.  But he finally did whip them into shape and mom/dad got their wonderfully delicious breakfast.  It was a sad breakfast knowing it would be some time before their next return.

After that heavenly breakfast, everyone decided to walk down the streets of Tybee one more time for memories sake.

Bashful got a little freaked out when he saw this picture of a shark on the side of the building.

Heck, he rolled like an avalanche back into mom’s pocket so fast that her shorts almost fell down – now that would have been a sight!

But Bashful didn’t have anything to fear – it was just a giant shark advertising a business.  A business that I might add had some wonderful trinkets and fun things in it from the beach.

Yep, that mom of mine – she likes to shop – snorts.

And of course, no good-bye is complete without walking down the pier and telling the ocean farewell.

Bashful went a little too far though.  He threatened to jump if mom/dad didn’t stay just one more day longer on their trip.  Well heck, what could they do?  They couldn’t have Bashful jumping off the pier – he can’t swim!  He sinks… like the Titanic.  The poor thing – I never taught him a fundamental important thing like swimming.  And mom, she couldn’t go in after him, she can’t swim either!

So, they had to do what they had to do.  Stay one more night. Way to go Bashful.  I wonder if I threaten to jump off the couch, would I get my way in anything?  hhhmm – I’m off to practice before mom gets home 🙂

Possible Careers for this Oinker at Large!

You know it gets to a point in a little pigs life that he has to start thinking about his future. Even Bashful has already started thinking about a career as a police rock. The little fellow has high ambitions. He’s working on his ‘demanding, authoritative’ voice now. It’s a work in progress.

So that got me thinking. I really need to start thinking about a career. You know, just in case I have to support mom/dad in their senior years. What? It could happen. So here are some possibilities that I have come up with.

 I’m still thinking about a life on the opposite side of crime. It kind of runs in the family. 🙂 There are K9’s out there that help detect bombs and drugs. Why can’t there be a Pig Detector? With my snout, I have a strong sense of smell. I think I could also detect bombs and drugs… of course with the right amount of training.

I wonder if the academy would take me? I think I’ll look into this and find the number in mom’s phone later. Maybe she can even pull a few strings for me and get me enrolled. And hey, if I get in then perhaps we can get Bashful in later? It’s worth a shot, right?

 

And I’m still not giving up on the idea of being a pilot. That would be pigawesome! If I could fly an airplane, perhaps this would finally put to rest the old saying about when pigs can fly. I mean heck with enough thrust any of us can take flight… even if it is only for a couple of minutes.

If I could fly a plane, just think of the possibilities. Do you think Delta would hire me? I could spruce up the old resume. How would you feel the next time you were flying and the pilot was ME? Of course, I would oink first before I told you we were taking off and I would try to keep the turbulence down. Thoughts?

 

 

Oh the days of being a cowboy.. running around the great pastures… all of that open space and fields.

Okay – maybe not a cowboy. I’m not that ready for nature yet.

Give me a little bit and I might change my mind.

But for now, let’s skip this for the time being.

 

 

What about working in road construction. Hey in Atlanta, Georgia, they are *always* working on the roads. I could direct traffic with the best of them. Maybe even my favorite news channel, Fox 5, here would do a special on me.

I can see it in lights now – “Tonight at 11PM – special on oinker that directs traffic in busy downtown Atlanta. Don’t miss it!”

Oh, that sent chills up my spine. This could definitely be a possibility my friends.

 

So what do ya’ll think my friends? Do you think any of these would work for me or do I need to keep looking for different jobs. Where was my guidance counselor when I was in school? Let me know. I’m up for suggestions my friends.  Just think of the possibilities! 

Oink XOXO – Bacon
