National Pick Strawberries Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

May 20th is a wonderful glorious day.  It is National Pick Strawberries Day – what a great
day to enjoy.  I know that this is a day that the pig Bacon can wrap those jowls around.  He absolutely LOVES strawberries and that’s a huge understatement.

Today, start a new tradition.  Go find a strawberry field and pick your own strawberries.  Start a family tradition.  I think Bacon’s mom is actually going to go and pick the little fellow a few of his own today. I wonder if they will let Bacon come and pick his own?  Chitter Chatter – that would be a picture for the blog!  Enjoy my friends!

Texts from Bacon

Oh friends, here’s another Texts from Bacon that you can’t miss out on.  The things that are communicated here at the Hotel Thompson never stop.  It’s like living in a circus sometimes!  Hope you enjoy.  My texts are in blue and mom’s are in white.  Have a great weekend – I can almost see the light from here on the couch!

Paw Time with Houdini


 Barks!  Hello sweet friends.  Hope you have had a fantastic week.  We all know my mom the shopper – barks with puppy laughter.  Well today I am wearing one of her finds.  She is always looking for new clothes for me.  Cause you know a pup can *never* have too many shirts.  Well, mom was shopping and found this shirt for me.  This is a shirt from the Cesar Millan line.  You know Cesar Millan – the dog behaviorist.  This shirt is made really well and double stitched.  I’m not sure what that means but mom got pretty excited over it and so did daddy.  Then again, my humans are weird.  On the bottom of the shirt (you can’t see it in the picture cause I’m sitting on it), it says Cesar Millan.  Mom has priced these shirts before and they are a little costly.  Well, she got this shirt on what she calls clearance for a sweet $5.00 – awesome huh?

Well my friends, hope you have a fantastic weekend.  Now I leave you with a throwback with Jokes with Daddy.  Hope you enjoy it!

Adventures with Mom/Dad

Let me just start this by saying – snorts with piggy laughter.  You *never* know what I will find on mom’s i-Phone when she is not looking.  Sometimes it’s things that even I can’t believe that my humans do in public in front of other people.  I just don’t get it – shaking my piggy head and oinking.

Last night mom came home from work and went to bed kind of early.  She just wasn’t ‘feeling it’ she said.  What it was I don’t know but from the way she was looking I don’t want to feel it either.  Do you know what ‘it’ is?  Do share.

So while mom went to bed, she left her cell on the sofa.  I crawled up beside daddy and checked it out.  That’s when I found this video that mom/dad took over the weekend while shopping.  Oh dear – please don’t lock my humans up for their strangeness.  Let me know your thoughts my friends.  Is it time to buy those fancy white jackets that tie in the back for both of them yet?

Travels in the South

 Welcome back my friends to another edition of Travels in the South.   Last week, I gave you some appetizers from a restaurant that mom/dad visited a couple of towns over from us.  You can read about that here.  Today I wanted to share the main course with him.  Now after eating all of those wonderful appetizers, mom did the right thing.  She went for a salad.  Mom said their salads were awesome with all kinds of the goodies that she likes in them like cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, mixed greens and croutons.  Doesn’t it look fantastic?

But dad, dad went straight up southern on all of us.  He got what the restaurant has on their menu as Glynn Street Burger.  Why is it called that?  Well the restaurant is on Glynn Street of course – snorts with piggy laughter.  Makes sense huh?  But what is in a Glynn Street Burger is the question.  Let me introduce you.

The Glynn Street Burger is an 8 ounce hamburger patty topped with a fried green tomato, pimento cheese and -gulps- bacon.  If you need to click on the picture to make it bigger to get a better look at this magnificent burger, please do.  You will want to see all of this goodness.  Dad says it’s one of those burgers that is wet and delicious.  You will need plenty of napkins… or as mom says a hose to hose you down before you get back in the car.  This burger is messy but so worth the fight in getting it into your tummy.  If you never had a burger with pimento cheese and a fried green tomato – don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.  Dad went straight up southern with this meal.   But as in the famous words of our favorite television detective, “One more thing.”  See those tater tots in the plate.  They are sweet potato tater tots.  Mom doesn’t care that much for tater tots but on this date couldn’t stay out of dad’s plate.  They were that delicious!

 

But wait a minute, mom has one more picture to share with you.  These are the outside doors of the bathrooms – too cute huh??!!

Happy Mothers Day Moms!!

Today is a wonderful and glorious day – Mother’s Day.  I appreciate my birth mother, Bertha, and I love her very much.  If it wasn’t for her and my dad Champ, I wouldn’t be here, right?  Snorts.  So I’m very thankful for my mother – Happy Mother’s Day mommy Bertha.

 I’m also very thankful for my adopted mother.  Mommy Bertha gave me life but my adopted mom gave me a home full of love.

I’m also very thankful for my Nana.  If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have my adopted mommy.  See how these things work?

I am so excited to share this date with you my friends and wish you all a wonderful Mother’s Day filled with love and snuggable hugs.

Trivia Knowledge – did you know that the first Mother’s Day was May 10, 1908 in Philadelphia.  That’s good trivia knowledge that I learned from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel.

So from me, Hemi, Houdini, the ‘rock’ clan and Journalist Rocky the Squirrel –

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY – WE LOVE YOU!!

Age Appropriate? Come on Dad

BOO!

Were you scared?  Piggy rolling around laughing.  I put a sheet on myself last night and was running through the Hotel Thompson snorting, oinking and booing.  I think I scared daddy and made him jump.  It was kind of funny and he said he was laughing inside although I couldn’t see him.  He said I kind of gave it away with the sheet over my snout.  What do you think?  Would you have been scared?

Dad also told me that I’ve been watching too many paranormal ghost shows.  Seriously dad?  Is there ever *too* many paranormal ghost shows?  He then told me that perhaps some of them weren’t age appropriate for me.  Daddy, you’ve got be kidding me.  Admit it dad, you’re the one afraid of the dark, not me.  And is there anything really not age appropriate for me?  I’m not like those scaredy cats around the house.  I’m a man pig.  I can take it.

Mom lets me stay up and watch these types of shows with her, especially on Friday and Saturday nights when there’s no work the next day.  They’re great fun.  Sometimes I think me and mom could team up and investigate a spooky place together.  It would make a great television show.  How many paranormal shows have you seen with a pig co-host?  I ain’t scared of no ghosts!
