Where in the World is Bashful?

Where in the World is Bashful?

The little tyke sent me this picture from his newest destination.  Not much to go on but he looks like he is having a heck of a good time.  You know that rock of mine NEVER stays home for very long.  So I’m wondering with all of the festivities in the pic, where will Bashful be spending his Christmas and New Year?  He did give me three hints.  I’ll list them here for you.

1 – He is going on vacation and will be traveling with his host family throughout the holidays.  I guess some people have the traveling gnome – we have a traveling pebble – snorts!

2 – His vision is still strong.  Sounds kind of cryptic.

3 – He’s catching up with a past girlfriend.  Wonder who this might be?

There you go my friends.  You know as much as I do.  Where or where in this huge world will Bashful be spending the holidays?

Guess Who Came Home?!

IMG_0597

 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?!

IMG_0595.JPGAnd 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.

OMP – Bashful and Speedy are WHERE?!

OMP – Where in the world did Speedy’s parents take them for holiday?  You won’t believe it.  You absolutely won’t believe it!  Please check it out on Speedy’s blog – WOWZER!  I have to admit that I might be just a tad bit green with jealousy – it’s beautiful!!

Bashful is Home!

Oh piggy heavens!  Bashful has made it home from Auntie Sharon in Australia!   He came in the mail and of course daddy would not let me open it until mom got home last night from the worky place.  It was a funny thing too.  It sounded like there was a party going on in that box.  In fact, this song was playing.

20140515-085701.jpg

Snorticles.  It was constant.  I kind of got used to it and was dancing and singing that catchy little tune myself.  When mom came home, I FINALLY got to open the box.  Bashful brought home a friend.  May I present to you Koishi.  Koishi in Japanese means pebble.  Here is the Japanese writing for it:  小石   Cool huh?  That Koishi is a looker – so pretty and beautiful in her kimono.  I know that Princess Coralena, Virginia and Rockelle were all in awe over her outfit.  There is a slight language barrier but I think we can get the meaning to a lot of things she is trying to say.  

The first thing she wrote was 私は恥ずかしがり屋の愛 which in Japanese language is Watashi wa hazukashi gari-ya no ai.  Do you know what that means?  I got out my piggy translator and looked it up.  It says, “I love Bashful”.  Isn’t that the sweetest?  That rock of mine certainly has the “IT” factor in picking up the ladies doesn’t he?  

All of the rock clans and I stayed up late last night talking and catching up on everything that has been going on here at the Hotel Thompson.  It was a late night into the morning but that was okay.  It was a stormy night here last night with thunder and lightening.  For a while, we lost power and everything was dark.  That’s okay though.  Koishi settled right beside Bashful and finally fell asleep in his arms.  It was adorable!

20140515-085708.jpg

 You gotta see some of the other items that came home with Bashful from Auntie Sharon.  First up, this adorable cute little keychain.  OMP (Oh m pig!)  Mommy fell IN LOVE with this keychain.  That soup in the bowl looks so real – like it’s going to pour out at any minute.  Isn’t is to die for?!

It’s so cute.  We had to put it on display in our curio cabinet.  We don’t want anything to happen to it!

20140515-085718.jpgThen, there was this headband.  Daddy had a FIT about it.  He immediately had to take it out of the package and put it on.  Snorts – it was too funny.  I’ll have to post about that situation next week.  When I tell you that daddy of mine is two scoops past crazy – I am not joking.  But I do have to give him this.  The man has skills.  Skills of stupidity but skills.  It’s okay though.  Mommy took the headband and wrapped it back up to put in our showcase.  We don’t want anything to happen to it.

20140515-085731.jpg

Also in the box were these cute little girls – I think they were made of wood.  Help me out Auntie Sharon if I’m wrong.  They were adorable!  I think perhaps they may look innocent and sweet but I think they were the ones starting up the party in the box with I Think I’m Turning Japanese.  Really, snorts, I do.

Of course, mommy put them in the curio cabinet as well.  They are too adorable and look so cute in the cabinet with the keychain and headband.

20140515-085725.jpg  And do you know what else Auntie Sharon found and sent to mom?  Minnie Mouse boxes – OMP (oh my pig).  I haven’t heard mom squeal that loud in a long time.  These two little boxes sit inside of each other.  They are precious!  Mommy was overly thrilled with them.

We can’t thank you enough Auntie Sharon for hosting Bashful and the wonderful gifts.  I really hope that Koishi will be happy here at the Hotel Thompson.   I hope I translated this correctly:

あなたに感謝し、私はあなたを愛して
Anata ni kansha shi, watashi wa anata o aishite

Movie Night – Rock Style

20130909-192251.jpg   Saturday night the Hotel Thompson had an open social so that Bashful, Manny and Princess Coralena could get to know one another.  For the occasion, mom got a 2006 Francis Coppola Pinot Noir out of the wine cellar and opened the bottle.  I mean heck, Bashful did some drinking in France so I guess he’s old enough now.

The bottle was popped and the social began.

It was a very entertaining night.  Manny has so many wonderful stories from France.  Bashful talked about his time with Easy and some of the things that were not posted.  There are some things that happen in France that stay in France my friends 🙂  Princess Coralena opened up and talked about her life in Hawaii.  It turned out to be a wonderful evening.

.

20130909-192244.jpgSunday, they all cuddled on the sofa, mom made popcorn and we all watched a movie.  The rock trio got to pick the movie and they chose a classic, “The Pebble and the Penguin.” It was the cutest movie ever!  We all enjoyed it, even dad.

After the movie, they all helped Bashful pack for his new field trip.  Princess Coralena and Manny were so excited for Bashful.  They talked about his adventure, where he was going and pondered into what kind of activities his host family would do with him.

Monday morning, they all hugged and said their goodbyes.  So far, so good.  Everyone is getting along just fine – just like we’ve been together forever!

Bashful Hide and Seek

Bashful – he’s a good pebble.  He tries to stay out of trouble.  Sometimes it works – sometimes not so much.  Last night, we were playing hide and seek in the house.  I can’t tell you how many times I walked by the table and saw this napkin.  It never dawned on me one single time that the little fella would be underneath it sleeping.

20130601-004234.jpg

The only thing that *finally* gave him away was that he had to go to the potty.  If it wasn’t for that, he would still be under the napkin on the table hiding.  And mom/dad, they weren’t much help.  I think dad was actually the one that suggested that great hiding place.  Where’s dad when *I* want to hide, huh?  Perhaps I should hide dad’s remote control and see how he likes to hunt for things for hours at a time – snorts.

Just another fun night at the Hotel Thompson.  How was your night?

On the Road with Bashful!

OUT AND ABOUT WITH BASHFUL… the rolling stone

 

 

 

 

 

Hello my friends.  This is Bashful, Bacon’s pet rock.  I’m continuing today with my series of “Out and About with Bashful… the rolling stone.”  Earlier in the week, you found me on my field trip to Wally World, better known to you as Walmart. 

 

20130430-105547.jpg

 While in the store, I got to ride this wonderful thing called a buggy.  It was wonderful!  Mom/dad got on to me a couple of times because I was so excited that I almost jumped out of the buggy like a Mexican jumping bean.  They fussed at me for reaching out and grabbing things off of the shelves.  I couldn’t help it!  It was so neat in this Wally World.  I’ve never been to a store before in my life. 

I found some really cool and comfy pillows.  Mom let me give them a test ride for comfort.  They passed with flying colors all the way around.  I mean hey, what better way to suck up to mom than to try these suckers out, right?  I know… I know… another pebble in the swear jar.

I couldn’t make up my mind which one I liked better.  We spent a lot of time in the pillow department going back and forth trying each one out.  20130430-105538.jpg

I wanted dad to help me out but he said that I was the rock for the job on this one.  So I bounced and bounced, wiggled in and got comfy.  What do you think?  I couldn’t just pick one.  Dad said he would ponder the decision while we were in the store looking around.

This place Wally World has everything!  So much under one roof.  It was simply amazing.  They told me that if I continued to be good, they would let me ride a pony.  What?!  They have ponies here too?  I was in shock… and a little excited.

So, I did what every smart rock would do.  I settled into the buggy, enjoyed the ride and looked forward to my pony ride.

And you know what?  They came through.  I got to ride a pony as you can see in this picture.  It was by far one of the highlights of my trip.  This pony made noises and moved back and forth and everything.  I could barely hang on without getting bounced right off of it.  It was all that this pet rock could wish for!

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed my trip so far.  There’s so much more to share with my outing at Wally World.  I hope you look forward to my next series.  Have a fantastic weekend my new friends.

Toodles – Bashful
