What?!

Hello friends of the Hotel Thompson.  This is Sherlock Bones reporting in from Chicago, Illinois.  Do you remember who I am?  I am Bacon, Houdini’s and Hemi’s cousin (my mom is Bacon’s mom’s sister).  WOW – that’s a lot to follow isn’t it?  Well guess what?  The gang’s mom/dad are not at the Hotel Thompson.  The gang of anipals are at Nana’s for a couple of days.  Why do you ask?

Because I have kidnapped them and they are magically here with me… and my two purr things – Poseidon and Marmalade.  Trust me, we are all taking good care of the pawrents.  We won’t let them get into too much trouble… but considering Bacon’s dad I think that asks for way too much, right?   And we all know where Bacon’s dad will be.  At any spectacular restaurant he can find – howls with laughter!  So stay tuned next week.  I’m sure there will be lots of details to spill.

Journal to Healthier Living – Week 19

Welcome my friends.  I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living.  It’s a step in the right direction for sure.  I hope you come along for the ride.  Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share.  Hope you enjoy.  Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤


Week of 05/13-05/19/2018 – Week 19

“Dear Journal – I think one of the biggest things about losing weight/eating healthier is getting your mindset in the right direction.  If your mind is not there, it’s not going to happen regardless of how many times you attempt.  Another for me is setting goals.  If I have the mindset and a mini goal to get to, it’s a done thing.  It’s the way I’m made just like others I’m sure.  In saying that, I’m re-adjusting my life, getting things in line and hitting my plan effective June 1.  Why am I putting it off until June 1?  Why not start today?  Well, we have vacation plans this week/next.  I’m going to enjoy myself and then hit it hard with monthly goals.  That is the plan.  So my walking pace will be back in June – come hell or high water.”


This week walked: 6.10

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  135.75

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  541.06

  small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

Paw Time with Houdini

See I can be a good boy… most of the time anyway.  But on this particular day, I had the patience of a saint!  Really I did.  Remember last Sunday being Mother’s Day?  Well, the one thing that my mommy doesn’t get a lot of is sleeping in on the weekends.  So Sunday, daddy got all of us up and out of the bedroom so mom could just sleep in.  He fed us all and we tried to stay quiet.  Of course daddy feeding us isn’t the same as mommy feeding us and talking to us.  But we gave her a day.

I sat patiently on daddy and the side of the couch waiting for mom to come out of their bedroom and down the hall.  I was on guard waiting… waiting… and then waiting some more… and then it happened.

Mom came out of the bedroom!

I’m not sure which one of us was more happy.  We barked, grunted and meowed and then dad grunted cause he was happy mommy was finally going to take him out to eat… of course her choice of restaurant for her day.  And then, you know letting those two out together there is going to be some trouble.  Check out the video they made Mother’s Day.  Shaking my head.  Even after almost 30 years, those two are gross.

Contest Winner

Do you remember our contest a couple of weeks ago here?

I introduced mom’s new ride Hot Lips which is a 2018 Toyota Prius Hybrid to you.  The contest was to guess –

How many miles do you think mom can go on ONE tank of gas?

The person who gets closest without going over will get a little something from the Hotel Thompson.  Remember, don’t go over on your estimate but get as close as you can.

First off – thank you to all of the people who guessed some great numbers. Mom was shy only by a couple of days of going almost ONE month without filling up Hot Lips.  As you can see from the picture below, mom went a total of 542 miles on ONE take of gas – can you believe that?!  We were so psyched here.  And now we are watching to see how far she goes on her second tank.

So the winner of the contest is katsrus!!

Conpigulations sweet friend.  Send me your address via email and I will get you something in the mail.

Thanks everyone for playing! ❤

Watch Out Ax Body Spray

  My mom and dad have got to quit going out and shopping.  Earlier today, they came home laughing.  Why you ask?  They showed me this picture – Bacon Body Spray.  ALL I have to say is, “What the piggy are people thinking?”

Bacon Body Spray – really?  No mom and dad didn’t buy this product.  I kind of wished they had though.  Exactly what does Bacon Body Spray smell like?  I don’t smell.  Really I don’t.  I’m very clean.  So how would people really know what Bacon Body Spray should smell like?  Can you tell me that my friends?

Has someone ever made a spray out of you?

Travels in Chicago –

 Did

 you think I was done highlighting some of the wonderful food mom/dad tried when they were visiting Illinois last November?  Of course not – snorts with piggy laughter.  How could

any visit be complete to the Chicago area without trying some of their famous Chicago deep dish pizza?  And of course, there was only one place they had to go for that –

Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria

First up, Aunt Tina said they had the best calamari.  So everyone ordered the Calamari Fritti which was lightly breaded and fried to perfection.  They serve this delectable appetizer with a side of cocktail sauce.  Of course, Aunt Tina made sure to spritz lemon all over these yum-yum’s before everyone dug into them.

And then everyone dug into some salad.  See even Aunt Tina made daddy eat some vegetables – mom was so proud.  Of course mom told daddy he had to eat the salad because the pizza takes time to cook.  That’s right.  Deep dish pizza takes longer to cook than the regular pizzas you might order from your fast food place.

 Then after a while, mom/dad/Aunt Tina said they heard angels singing and their individual pizzas were delivered.  Instead of getting one huge pizza, they all got individual ones with side salads.  These pizzas had sausage and black olives – and lots of sauce.

What did mom/dad think about this Chicago style deep dish pizza?  Dad is a huge pizza person.  He said that he ‘thinks’ he liked it but he would have to try one again to be sure.  That sounds like dad, huh?  But in the end, he said he would give it about an eight.

Mom said it was okay.  Mom is not a fan of a lot of sauce on her pizzas and of course this one is fully loaded with sauce.  And the crust is thick and a there is a lot of it surrounding the pizza.  Mom said the crust was kind of hard too.  There was lots of flavor but this pizza left mom on the it was okay side.  So for these reasons, mom gave it about a four.

But overall, everyone had a fantastic time at a famous landmark.  Would they go back again – of course they would!  There is more to the menu than just pizza.  And if you know anything about my mom/dad, they are professional eaters – snorts with piggy laughter.

Week of 05/06-05/12/2018 – Week 18

“Dear Journal – Life is better with a plan.  I think I finally found a plan that I can work with and do every day.  I’m a planner like that.  So what is the plan you ask?  I’m glad you asked Journal.  So for part of my lunch during the week, I’m doing 15 minutes of light stretches/yoga.  This has been giving me a solid rock during the week.  I don’t feel as pressured or stressed when I get home.  Another 15 minutes I do a solid walk.  And then I’m watching what I’m eating.  And the big one – no soda’s.  I did it once for almost six months.  I can do this again – no soda’s.  And more water… water is your friend.  Be one with your friend.”


This week walked: 6.26

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  129.65
