Happy Birthday Bashful!!

 

 OMP (oh my pig!)  Can you believe that it’s been FOUR years since Bashful came to live with me here at the Hotel Thompson?  This is him all snuggled in transport the first time that I saw him – aaww.  Wasn’t he all cute and innocent in his straw bed? 

And to think of all of the places he  has been in the world?  He’s going to need extra pages in his passport book soon ❤

So, today, let’s all wish our little international rolling stone a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Misaki

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this new series!


Name:  Misaki

Age:  4

Location:   ​Essex, UK

Web/Blog Page:  themisadventuresofmisaki  (Be sure to pop over and say hey – remember to tell Misaki that Bacon and Houdini sent you.)

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I was very curious about my new daddy’s beard, it tasted really nice when I licked it. And I liked the way mummy spoke to me about my new home, and our new life together, especially all the treats she promised me. I couldn’t wait to find out more!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When mummy and daddy gave up on trying to get me to sleep downstairs and let me bunk in with them

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   ​When I ate daddy spelt loaf that he’d been looking forward to! In my defence he left it on the kitchen counter so it was fair game really! But he still wasn’t very impressed.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  ​Although I’m a total daddy’s girl, its Mummy who would do anything for me. She’s the one who will get up with me in the middle of the night if I need to go out and will take me for early walkies while daddy is still snoring. She says she can’t resist my adorable face:-)

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That I’m greedy and spoiled – nothing could be further from the truth!


 

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Misaki – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Spies Like Us – 1st Set of Nominations

OMP (oh my pigs)!  When me and my buddy Fozzie opened up this contest, I don’t think we thought we would get such AWESOME pictures.  We want to say thank you so very much my friends for all of the submissions for Spies Like Us.  All I can say is WOW!  We knew *we* could do it.  We knew *we* could catch our humans in the most strangest of all predicaments.  AND WE WERE RIGHT.  Our fellow anipals – ya’ll did an excellent job.  I mean EXCELLENT.  I’m going to break down the submissions into two days – today and tomorrow  Remember to share this posting on your blog with your friends so they can vote on MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014.

IMG_0007.JPGSubmission 1 – Can you guess which one of our friends dressed up like Boy George during their day and strutted their stuff?  Can you?  Submission 1 was submitted by Sherri-Ellen – you know Nylablue’s mommy.  Isn’t this awesome?  I wonder if she sang Karma Chameleon while she was dressed up like Boy George?  Or maybe it was I’ll Tumbe 4 Ya.  Do you remember the name of the band that Boy George was in?  If you said Culture Club – you would be right!  Just like we thing Sherri-Ellen was right on the money dressed up in this outfit.  Way to go my friend!!

Submission 2 –  We know the humans do weird things in their day grooming themselves.  Easy was able to catch his mother with her hair up – literally.  Then mom had Easy’s undivided attention – was it the hair?  Was it the sweet talking to Easy?  Was it the scratching of his neck?  Who knows – but thanks to Easy for snapping this wonderful picture of his human!  Oh, and you are actually wondering what was in her hair?  Per Easy, it was the board rolls that you find inside of toilet paper.  Easy’s mom said that her fur is too long for common hair curlers.  What do you know – maybe that’s all the new style now?  Who would have thought that?

Submission 3 – OMP (oh my pigs!)  Speedy definitely got the scoop on my little tyke – the international rolling stone Bashful.  Speedy said he was absailing.  That rock sure does get into a lot of weird predicaments doesn’t he?  In fact, it kind of looks like he’s bungee jumping.  Snorts – way to go Speedy!

Submission 4 – Do you recognize this human partaking in Gravy Bones?  Note to humans – that’s *our* food.  You can’t have it okay.  Snorts – this submission was from Misaki of his mother getting into his Gravy Bones.  I wonder what she thought of them.  Were the good?  Chewy?

I might to put some of these on mom’s grocery list for the market so I can try some – licks piggy lips.  Awesome photo!

.

.

IMG_0078.JPG Submission 5 – These two pictures were submitted by Bunk and Lilly on their parents.  OMP (Oh my pig!)  They really went undercover as Spies to get these two.  Don’t you agree?  Snorts – ❤ them!  Don’t you just *have* to know the story behind these two photographs?  Oh to have been a fly on the wall!

Submission 6 – Oh dear piggy heavens.  I had to submit this one of my strange human daddy.  I don’t know what he was doing in the driveway.  Maybe it was his rendition of John Travolta dancing.  I don’t know.  Shakes piggy head.  He was rocking that orange though wasn’t he?  Maybe he was pointing to something flying in the sky over the Hotel Thompson?  Maybe it was a bird, a plane, or maybe me Super Piggy?  Oops, sorry I digress.  Let me get back on track.

Happy Birthday Bashful!!

 

 OMP (oh my pig!)  Can you believe that it’s been an entire year since Bashful came to live with me?  This is him all snuggled in transport the first time that I saw him – aaww.  Wasn’t he all cute and innocent in his straw bed? 

And to think, fast forward a year and think of all of the wonderful places he has traveled.  France to see Easy, Australia to see Fozzie, Virginia to see Stuart, United Kingdom to see Misaki and where is he now?  I’m not telling but you are going to be surprised where he turns up next.  That is definitely for sure!

.

So, today, let’s all wish our little international rolling stone a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Bashful Made it Home!

20140126-143250.jpg 

Bashful sweet Bashful finally made in home to the Hotel Thompson this weekend.  He came riding in on his skateboard that he got for Christmas at Misaki’s.  He was tired, had jetlag  and had a LOT of explaining to do on his travels back home.  I let him get some sleep but told him we needed answers.

Over breakfast this morning, he told us that he had an awesome time with Misaki and family.  He spoke of fun playing cards, riding his skateboard down some ramps, getting some beer and seeing some sights.  He also said it rained a lot more there than here in south Georgia – snorts.  He has memories that he will never forget and so much fun!

And he brought home some gifts. 

A piggy coaster that reads, “The best way to behave is to misbehave”; some seaside rock candy in the star (really delicious!); some Percy Pig candies (I can’t get enough of these!); a wonderful keychain to remind me of my travels and a pink piggy tote bag.

Thank you Misaki so very much for the treats, the kindness of hosting my Bashful  and showing him a great time.  I think he even came home with the cutest little accent!  I am so jealous of it. He has definitely gotten the rock girls heads turning here at the Hotel Thompson with that accent – snorts.

.

AND, Bashful came home with a friend.  Misaki said he was “sweet but slightly dim”.  I think they got into great trouble traveling together on the way home.  It could account for his interview with Rolling Stone magazine – snorts. 

May I present to you the  newest member of our rock clan – Benedict Cumberock.

Rolling Stone – WOW

 

 

Really Bashful?  Bashful is MIA from his travel to Misaki’s.  I got my issue of Rolling Stone magazine today (hey, I’m a happening pig that likes to read) and guess who is on the cover?  Bingo – that Bashful of mine.  Apparently while he was in London, he got interviewed.  Shaking my piggy head.

So maybe this tells us where he is now.  Living large with royalty and rock stars?  Bashful, if you are reading this.  You get your rock hiney here right this instant.  You have obligations waiting for you. If you are not home by this weekend, I will send authorities out to get you.
