Spotlight Thursday – Meet Rocky and Bullwinkle

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 series!

❤ Rocky and Bullwinkle are Facebook friends.  They will be checking in throughout the day to answer any comments/questions.  Let’s welcome them ❤


Name:  Rocky and Bullwinkle

Age:   One years young

Location:  Cumming, Georgia

Web/Blog Page:  Facebook – Rocky and Bullwinkle

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?   Our dad was scary at first.  He had to chase us to get us in the crate.  We ran away but eventually he caught us.  He was very nice but it was scary being placed in the back of the truck.  When we got to our new home, we met our mommy who was very beautiful ❤ and she was so nice to us.  We knew right away our mommy really loved us.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  After finishing our job of eating all of the ivy and brush, we knew they fell in love with us and built us a house.  And our new fur mom Sierra loved us a lot.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   Rocky here.  My big no-no was good.  I escaped out of the fence.  That’s bad enough but wait for it.  I then ate mom’s favorite plant.  Okay yeah that was definitely bad but wait for it.  I then jumped on the table outside and pooped on it.  Yeah, and they still kept me.  If nothing shows love, that does.  Bullwinkle here.  My big no-no wasn’t as bad as Rocky’s – trust me on that.  The worst I do is maybe scream and maybe complain when I’m hungry.  But don’t you complain when you’re hungry?

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Rocky here.  I’m like dad.  People actually call us two peas in a pod and say that me and dad think the same and act crazy.  Bullwinkle here.  I’m very close to mom.  We love each very much!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  People think us goats eat tin cans – we don’t even like the taste!  Actually we are very intelligent and we put things in/out of our mouths because that’s how we find out what things are like – you know like how dogs smell things.  And if anyone gets a goat, we need to come in pairs.  We don’t do well without a friend.  And let me tell you, a lonely goat is a bad goat.  And we are very loving.  We can act like big goofy dogs.♥

This is us – Rocky and Bullwinkle – with Sierra.  Happy Trails!


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

Travels in the South

  Welcome friends to another edition of Travels in the South.  Today is being brought to you by daddy.  Recently McDonald’s launched a bigger Big Mac called the Grand Mac.  Now dad loves his Big Mac’s of any kind but he has been opting out of trying this because of eating clean.  Well this past weekend, he couldn’t help himself.  He had to try one and of course mom was there to interview him and take pictures – that’s my mom.  She didn’t try one or any of his french fries – go mom and your will power!

Now this is from the McDonald’s website:  “A regular Big Mac is two pure beef patties, Big Mac sauce, sandwiched between a sesame seed bun, American cheese, crisp lettuce, onions and pickles.”  And a regular Big Mac has 540 calories.

Now here is the description from McDonald’s website on the Grand Mac:  “Sink into 1/3 pound of real beef seasoned with salt & pepper sandwiched between a sesame seed bun.  All dressed with special sauce, crisp lettuce, onions, pickles and two slices of American cheese.”  And a Grand Mac has a whopping 860 calories!

Okay, a little more beef, an extra slice of cheese and 320 more calories.  And the pictures on television and on the McDonald’s website show there is a size difference and we all know that size matters, right?  So what did daddy think about the Grand Mac?

Daddy shrugged his shoulders at it.  The Grand Mac that he got did not look much bigger than a regular Big Mac.  It didn’t taste any different per say.  It was just okay.  In fact, if dad had to do it all over again, he said he would pass.  It just wasn’t that awesome.  So there you go – from the dad’s mouth.

Bashful is HOME!

 

Guess who came home from visiting my brother Phenny in France?!  That would be Bashful, my pet rock.  Squeals!  Some of the stories he told – oh my piggy heavens.  He had such a blast visiting Phenny – and getting in trouble and spending some time on his time out rug – snorts with piggy laughter.  He arrived Thursday night here at the Hotel Thompson with some wonderful gifts that kept him company on his way home.

And of course, he brought home a friend!  Meet Brittany who is a little bit of rock and roll – all the way from France.  Let me tell you friends, she has a voice on her and has been singing non-stop.  I need to be careful with this one.  The next thing I’ll know is she will be starting her own Rock Group here at the Hotel Thompson with some pebble back up singers.

So everyone – let’s welcome Brittany to the blogs and my growing rock collection.  ❤

And huge THANK YOU for Phenny and his staff for hosting my little tyke Bashful.  Thanks so much brother!!

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!

Journey with Friends – Week 11

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


March 12, 2017 –   I think the i-Watch needs to have housecleaning put in for one of the exercises you can perform.  Really I do.  The past couple of Sunday’s me and the hub unit have spent cleaning and moving things around here at the Hotel Thompson.  There’s no telling how many calories you are burning off while washing/drying/folding clothes, sweeping/mopping the floors throughout the home, cleaning the tub/toilet in the bathroom and taking trash out.  Are you with me on this?  LOL  Miles Moved: 1.10

March 13, 2017 –  Back to the hills today – how much fun can one girl have?  Today’s routine was this:  walk the entire parking lot, then do the cardiac hill up and down twice and then repeat with a total of four times around the parking lot in 30 minutes.  And let me add it was 40 degrees with wind outside today.  I bundled up, zipped up my hoodie and hit the ground walking.  Another day down for sure – what a way to start a Monday!  Miles Moved: 2.60

March 14, 2017 –  It’s cold outside.  Okay I said it. I’m not ashamed of that.  I live in the south for heavens sake.  It’s not suppose to be this cold like ever really. It was in the 30’s today and the wind was something wicked.  I emailed my sister that lives in Chicago.  She let me know really quick what cold weather really is and then sent me this weather warning… of course after telling me to bundle up before walking.  And I did walk.  In the cold.  Bundled up like a snowman.  Spring where are you?   Miles Moved: 2.22

March 15, 2017 –  Again with this crappy weather.  Our winter has been pretty mild so why Mother Nature are you being a witch this week?  Don’t you know I have walking to do – goals to meet?  I did 25 minutes outside until my face was frozen.  I did the last 5 minutes inside walking around the office making my own paths around desks and other obstacles.  But in the end, I got my 30 minutes in.  Please make the weather better tomorrow.  Miles Moved: 2.08

March 16, 2017 – Went to a friend’s restaurant last night with the hub unit. Let’s just say I ate a little too much of the good stuff.  But never fear.  The voice of my sister pushing me along was with me today encouraging me to do double time on the hills.  Heck, I walked so hard today – full 30 minutes outside in the cold 40’s weather – that my i-Watch gave me a medal.  See that and eating a decent dinner tonight – a delectable salad – who could ask for more?   Miles Moved: 3.54

March 17, 2017 –  Oh my goodness!  I have the worst migraine today.  Needless to say I didn’t move much.  I don’t get these often but when I do – WOWZER!  It’s going to be a low key day today. Miles Moved: 1.11

March 18, 2017 –  I feel so much better today!  Yesterday was so dark and today I’m back baby!  Gotta make up for a day missed from yesterday so today it will be errand day.  Miles Moved: 1.90


Thoughts for the week:  Let’s talk about encouragement this week.  Friends, you do not know how much help you are in encouraging me each and every week.  It’s like my little club encouraging me to walk five days a week.  Thank you very much for your support, encouragement and ideas  ❤

And my sister Tina.  She bought me my i-Watch for Christmas so I could get healthier.  I can’t thank you enough Tina.  Between that I-watch knowing you are always looking at my activity rings and you being in my head guiding me what to eat and do, I don’t know how I could do this.  You are totally awesome and rock!  Smooches to a better *US*.  


This week walked: 14.55

TOTAL 2017 Miles: 143.36


Weight Loss:  -12.00 pounds (88 more to go!)  *Scales aren’t moving lately.  I’m fixing to shoot them.  However, I can feel the changes in my body – which is better than the scales moving, right?

Oh Good Grief Daddy – Part II

Today daddy thought he would go for a dress tie adventurous look to show his Irish roots.

I’m not sure about you, but I think he needs a bigger tie – snorts PLOL (Piggy laughing out loud).
