So there we were this past Saturday all of us bundled in the living room watching the clock intensely. We were expecting a long distance call from someone here in blogville. Someone that we have talked to verbally by type, sent packages to back/forth and even talked to them on Facebook. But we had never talked in person via the phone. Emails were sent back and forth and the magical time was set for 2:30 pm our time which would make it 8:30 pm their time. That’s right, they are SIX hours ahead of us.
Then it happened. The phone rang. We all jumped of course because we were concentrating on the phone and clock. Mom answered the phone and put it on speaker.
Mom – “Hello”
Friend in blogville – “Hello is this the Hotel Thompson?”
Score – jumps for joy. It is our friend and not a solicitor or robo call – snorts. I know – I know. You’re asking who was the caller. It was – are you ready for this – my brother Easy from France! We were ALL so excited. We got to talk to Easy’s dad and had such a blast! Mom was so excited that she got to talk to a real Frenchman – hubba hubba. It was an awesome time full of fact changing and getting to know each other and ask questions that we’ve always wanted to. And talk about accents. WOW! It was great.
One never knows who might reach out from across the telephone lines in the future. Thanks Easy for calling this oinker. We had the best of time! I know it’s greedy to say but we can’t wait to do it again!

Jumping all around and squealing. Guess who came home yesterday. Go ahead – guess. Can you guess? Do you know? Do you want a hint? Go ahead guess. BASHFUL my international rolling stone. He’s been spending time with my buddy Speedy in the United Kingdom the past couple of months. He has told all of us some awesome stories of adventures he had with Speedy. They danced and boogied to the radio. Played in the garden together. Met some ponies and some girls ❤ And of course some things that happened in the United Kingdom – stays in the United Kingdom – snorts.
The mailman delivered a box to the steps of the Hotel Thompson and once we opened it, we found a booty of goodies. Bashful dressed like a pirate. Pirate coins, notebooks and a sleeping bag! Can you believe the goodies?!
And you know what? Bashful came home with a friend – cheers, screams and snorts. May we present to you Speedy Rock to the left. Awesome – spectacular – fun – amazing. Look at the resemblance to Speedy – all the way to the ears to the bushy tail. OMP (oh my pig!) We were snorting with delight here.
And the gals – Princess Coralena, Virginia, Rockelle and Koishi were falling all over him and his accent… or was it his eye patch? I think they are all in ❤ and hey – what’s there not to be in love with, right?
Thanks Speedy for showing my tyke a most excellent adventure. And I guess that brings up the next question. Just where in the world will Bashful show up next? And to those that have signed up on the list to host Bashful, don’t give up. We are slowly working down the list. It might take a while, but it will get to you.
