Dear Bacon – I have the perfect plan my friend. Oh barks – it’s the best! Here’s the plan. I plan on going door to door in my neighborhood. When humans come to the door, I plan on telling them that I’m and Inspector with C.M. across the country. You know C.M. = Canine Meals. And that I’m there to sample their canine meals for originality and taste. Dude, I think I have a chance. What do you think? Signed Inspector Husky
Dear Inspector Husky – Oh dude! I think you do have a plan there. I can see it now – canines from all over the world will be catching on in their neighborhoods all in the honor of YOU. Might I suggest you get a badge made up as well. You know humans these days won’t let you inside unless your official. Be safe and keep us posted.
Dear Bacon – There we were me and my human going for a walk here in the Spring – rolls doggy eyes. Yeah Mother Nature has a twisted sense of humor. Snow in Spring. Yeah okay. Back to my story. We were walking and all of a sudden this snow came drifting off of the roof. I moved but guess who didn’t? Barks! Where’s Lassie when you need her to let peeps know my human fell and can’t get up? You know I did what I could. I stuck my head in the snow to make sure they were breathing. They were. Signed Lassie in Training
Dear Lassie in Training – Well priorities my friend. At least you made sure that your human could breathe. We all know that their hearing and reflexes aren’t like ours. This is just proof in the pudding – snorts. You did dig him up, right? I hope he’s not still there.
Dear Bacon – Well there goes my political career. I was going to run for President however this picture has now been circulated by the other candidates. I knew they were afraid of my charisma and they knew I would beat them. Darn it. I missed being President by just a cat’s whisker. Signed Nip Ready
Dear Nip Ready – You know my friend this doesn’t mean the end. As long as you didn’t inhale, you may have a chance. Really – check it out in the past history. I think you still need to run. Heck, even with the nip history you still have a better running campaign than some. Honestly.
REMEMBER my friends. Dear Bacon can’t happen without YOU. Please continue to send me your letters and pictures to my email address. ♥

Oh my sweet friends. How are you holding up so far with my 31 Days of Spook? Are you leaving the lights on at night yet? Are you watching all of the shadows behind you? Are you spooked when someone says hello to you? Snorts – if you are, buckle up those seat belts because I’ve got a great scary story for you today. This story was submitted by my friends Lassie and Benji. If you haven’t met Lassie and Benji, please visit their blog and tell them that Bacon sent you.
This is a true story from Lassie and Benji’s mom from like 87 years ago when she was a young teenager. In the picture to the left is Murko who is mentioned in the story below. In order to say Murko’s name correctly, you have to roll the “R” in the name. Go ahead and say it a couple of times. I know you want to 🙂 So now, we are going to tell mom’s story.
“Mommy came home from school one day and was all alone in the house. Well not totally alone, it was just her and her cat, “Murko”. There was this wicked wind blowing down the alley. Mommy lived in a twin house so the alley was just on the one side of the house. Anyway, the wind seemed to come outta no where! Mommy figured maybe a storm was coming, but she thought that was odd since she didn’t remember the weatherman mentioning a storm in the forecast.
Then Mommy heard some strange noises. It was almost like a high-pitched crying or wailing sound, but not quite. It was the wind. It was screeching as the air hit the corner of the windows while it was blowing down the alley. The high pitched screeching sounds were very short and the echo of the sounds bounced up and down the alley way. Mommy started to get an uneasy feeling.
The room went rhythmically from light to dark, almost as if it were shadows or passing clouds blocking the sunlight. Then all of the sudden a plant on the windowsill came tumbling over spilling dirt all over our dining room carpet.
Next, the curtains on the windows were flying up in the air as well — it was almost as if the curtains were dancing while flying in the air still tethered up by curtain rod. The curtains seemed to go methodically from one window to the next — floating up and down — first the dining room window curtains then the breakfast room curtains floated in the air. The pattern of the flying curtains was moving in Mommy’s direction getting closer and closer to where she was standing in the kitchen. Mommy was terrified seeing the white curtains floating in the air and seeing them headed in her direction…. and she screamed, “It’s a GHOST!”
Almost instantaneously, the cat leaped in the air like something spooked her and Mommy leaped even higher than the cat! And then all of the sudden the “storm” stopped.
Mommy thought to herself, was it really a “storm” or was the wind a sign of some evil presence or perhaps even a ghost! Mommy hurried and shut all the windows tight and clung to her cat waiting for her sibling to come home from school as well.
Mommy’s older sibling came home from school and was baffled at the sight of Mommy sitting on the floor holding her cat surrounded by the dirt all around her on the floor from the toppled over plant. Mommy told her sibling of the horrible tale of the wind and the plant and the flying curtains … and the sibling said, “What are you talking about, it wasn’t windy today!”
GULP! Maybe it was a Ghost after all!”
