HAPPY CINCO de MAYO my friends!!

You’re asking yourself what does that mean?  I’m here to tell you.  May 5th is a date that is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride – to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first five years of the American Civil War.  This date of May 5th is not to be confused with September 16th which is Mexican Independence Day.

 

Go out and show your support for Cinco de Mayo – have some Mexican food and celebrate your support.

I know Bacon is going to encourage his mom and dad to go out for date night tonight and have fun.  I think he’s encouraging them because he thinks they will bring him back a piggy bag.  🙂 smart pig huh?

Celebrate my friends and have a great and safe time!

Travels in the South

Everyone should have that one great Mexican restaurant that they always have on their ‘go to’ list when nothing else sounds good for dinner.  You know what I mean.  There is always the constant, “Where do you want to eat”, conversation going on here at the Hotel Thompson.  It’s daily and it always ends with, “It doesn’t matter.  Whatever you want.”  I piggy swear that sometimes they need to write all of the local restaurants down on pieces of paper, fold them and put them in a box.  When these nights come up about where do you want to eat, randomly pick a piece of paper out of said box – problem solved.

This was one of those nights where mom/dad just automatically skipped the conversation and went straight to their stand by of Mexican food.  It’s a no brainer.  They don’t even have to decide what to order because they always get the same thing and split the meal.  What is it you ask?

This wonderful meal is called Tacos De Alambre.  It’s made with flour tortillas, grilled steak, onions and bell peppers.  Mom also gets her Tacos De Alambre topped with Chihuahua cheese.  This is a great Mexican melty yummy cheese.  Can you say delicious?

Travels in the South

Anyone for some nachos?  Welcome my friends to another posting of Travels in the South.  Today we went a little Mexican.  Okay maybe I should say mom/dad went a BIG time Mexican.  They decided one night to go out and split some Fajita Nachos and maybe – and I stretch maybe – a Margarita might have been involved – snorts with piggy laughter.  And I say share because look at that plate!

It had peppers, onions, chicken, steak, shrimp and cheese slathered all over it.  It was messy and so delicious!  And hey splitting it between mom/dad meant half of the calories, right?  Don’t you love the way those two parents of mine have changed their way in thinking about food?  You don’t have to give up the things you love, just split them in half with someone else you love ❤

Dear Bacon

Dear Bacon –  It is that time of the year to celebrate graduations.  Here I am with my pup who just graduated from the top of his training class.  I told him we would go out for Mexican and a little Samuel Adams for the pop if you know what I mean.  These classes don’t come cheap.  But only the best for my son.  I told little Bubba that we would take a selfie to remember this moment forever.  They are only young once and grow so fast.  If I close my eyes, he might be driving next week!  Signed Big Bubba.

Dear BB – Now that is so awesome my friend.  What a way to celebrate the moment at paw.  And you are right.  The little tykes grow up so fast.  At first I had a little rolling stone and now he travels so much I have no clue where he is this week – snorts with piggy laughter.  Enjoy the little minutes friend!


Dear Bacon – There I was minding my own business playing in the hood.  The master called me and I came willing.  That’s when he started spelling words.  Really?  We can spell you know.  Then I heard the letters to that God forsaken place – gulps – the V.E.T.  I was like, “Whatcha talkin bout Willis?” Yep, I call my human by his first name when he says that three lettered bad word.  As if anyone wants to go and get felt up by the V.E.T.  Do your humans do this?  Signed Arnold

Dear Arnold – The man has some nerve.  Humans forget we are smart anipals for sure.  Of course we can spell! We can do all kinds of things the humans don’t know about it when they are not looking.  Of course, that’s a post for another day – snorts!  I think you should ignore the human.  Who really *needs* to go get felt up?… well maybe if there is a cute poodle involved and that is a strong maybe!


Dear Bacon – Do you ever wonder why the earth move sometimes?  No not like around orbit or anything.  I mean like you are in the house and you hear a huge bang or a rumble on the streets.  It’s not what you think.  You may *think* that it’s maybe a thunder storm or a big truck.  Nope it’s not.  It’s us Super Squirrels letting pooches know who really is in charge – us.  This is a picture of me fixing to rock a dog’s world.  Just imagine what the dog looked like when he saw me in mid-strike.  HA!  Signed Super Squirrel

Dear Super Squirrel – OMP!  It all makes sense now.  This is why Australia doesn’t have squirrels.  Possibly – and I stress possibly – all the continents were united and you Super Squirrels took force like the Marvel comics and broke everything apart.  Tell me my friend, am I on the right track?  Try to keep your strikes down okay.  We don’t need anymore continental drifts – snorts.


 

Dear Bacon – I don’t get it.  I’m not amused.  First up my human goes into hysterics when he looks at me and calls me Scooby.  He is always offering me Scooby snacks and asking me if I’m ready for a mystery.  The line was drawn when he got me this new collar.  I think my human has went over the fine line of sanity.  I really do.  Can you help my human out?  His name is Shaggy and he is even talking about taking me to something called DragonCon this year.  What the heck is that?  Barks – Scoob

Dear Scoob – Oh dude, your owner is just having a lot of fun for sure.  I can see Scooby Doo in you.  Scooby Doo is like a happening pooch that is great at solving mysteries and he even belongs to a gang.  Of course the gang is called Mystery Inc.  It’s not a bad thing at all my friend.  And this DragonCon thing is a huge convention where you can meet so many new friends.  Heck, you might even meet someone that looks like you.  What a blast it would be.  Maybe Houdini can come dressed as Scrappy?  Look Scrappy up – it would be a blast!


Dear Bacon – Do you ever feel like you are being made the butt of all your staff’s jokes?  My staff put these glasses on me and have not stopped laughing since.  Heck, the mommy almost made water down her leg from laughing so hard.  Who says that us anipals are the ‘kids’ these days.  Really!  Signed Googly

Dear Googly – Shaking my head.  I understand completely.  My humans are two of the biggest kids ever here in the south.  I don’t trust them to leave the house by themselves.  Trouble doesn’t find them.  They find trouble.  It’s so embarrassing.  You just keep your eye on the situation my friend.

Paw Time with Houdini


Hello sweet friends – welcome to my Paw Time with Houdini. Today is Cinco de Mayo and we here at the Hotel Thompson have been getting ready for the holiday all week.  You  might have read earlier in the week where daddy is going to join a mariachi band to attempt to make some extra money for our surprise in September.  Well we know that every super hero – even a mariachi singer – needs a side kick.  So mom went shopping with Nana and look what they found me – can you believe it?!  My very own Mexican poncho with fringe – barks with puppy excitement.  I think it fits my little bum just perfect.  I am so ready to go out tonight for some partying…. just a couple of houses down from me they are throwing a party.  We have been invited.  Of course, they wanted Bacon as guest of honor so he backed out.

Go figure huh?

Between daddy dressing up with his guitar and me with my new poncho, hopefully we can make a little side money.  Wish us luck.

But wait a minute, I’m not done.  Barks!  Nope I’m not.

I want to share what my brother Phenny’s dad made me from across the pond.  *Now* I think I’m ready to start rolling some r’s and singing.  Oh mom, can you practice some Spanish with me now?  Hasta la vista babies! ❤

And now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – enjoy my friends ❤

Daddy is Getting a Part-Time Job

Our big surprise is coming up in September – just mere months away!  So dad thought he would be resourceful and get a part-time gig with a mariachi band to help with saving some money.  And with Cinco de Mayo being in a couple of days, what better way, right?

So the next time you are in your local Mexican restaurant, be on the lookout for my daddy.  He will be the one singing off key with a southern twang.  You might want to consider giving him a little something to be quiet.

I wonder if we can find a Mexican poncho small enough for Houdini so he can go as his side kick?  You know – the more making extra money the better, right?  Snorts with piggy laughter.
