Bashful Made it Home!

20140126-143250.jpg 

Bashful sweet Bashful finally made in home to the Hotel Thompson this weekend.  He came riding in on his skateboard that he got for Christmas at Misaki’s.  He was tired, had jetlag  and had a LOT of explaining to do on his travels back home.  I let him get some sleep but told him we needed answers.

Over breakfast this morning, he told us that he had an awesome time with Misaki and family.  He spoke of fun playing cards, riding his skateboard down some ramps, getting some beer and seeing some sights.  He also said it rained a lot more there than here in south Georgia – snorts.  He has memories that he will never forget and so much fun!

And he brought home some gifts. 

A piggy coaster that reads, “The best way to behave is to misbehave”; some seaside rock candy in the star (really delicious!); some Percy Pig candies (I can’t get enough of these!); a wonderful keychain to remind me of my travels and a pink piggy tote bag.

Thank you Misaki so very much for the treats, the kindness of hosting my Bashful  and showing him a great time.  I think he even came home with the cutest little accent!  I am so jealous of it. He has definitely gotten the rock girls heads turning here at the Hotel Thompson with that accent – snorts.

AND, Bashful came home with a friend.  Misaki said he was “sweet but slightly dim”.  I think they got into great trouble traveling together on the way home.  It could account for his interview with Rolling Stone magazine – snorts. 

May I present to you the  newest member of our rock clan – Benedict Cumberock.

I Got Mail!

You might remember a couple of weeks back I wished Percy Pig happy birthday.  You can find the post here https://piglove.wordpress.com/2013/07/23/happy-birthday/  He actually turned 21 that day – what an accomplishment!  Mommy has Percy Pig on her Facebook and we often read about the candy.  We’ve wanted to try them and even mentioned it in my post.

Well let me tell you about the kindness of someone right here on our blog.  Misaki, who is an Alaskan Malamute, has his own blog at http://themisadventuresofmisaki.wordpress.com/  Misaki  emailed me to advise that his human works close to a Marks and Spencer that sells the Percy Pig candies and asked it we would like some.  This little piggy was overwhelmed at the generosity of Misaki and his family.

Last night when mommy got home, we had a package in the mail and it was to me!  I opened it up and there was a personalized letter from Misaki.

I was so piggy thrilled and excited!  My first international mail from the United Kingdom.  I couldn’t slow down from running throughout the Hotel Thompson.  Mommy thought I was already high on sugar – snorts.  We opened the package to find – insert angelic music here – Percy Pig delights!  All kinds of Percy Pig delights!  There was Percy Piglets, Percy and Penny, Percy Pig and Percy Pig and Friends.  So much to choose from!  Mommy opened up the bags and put them in a tight sealed container.  I got to pick one to eat – snorts.  She *thought* she was going to get a picture – snorts.  She gave it to me and I was so hyped up from getting the package that I took off to my room to eat it.

Might I add – it was delicious!  It was kind of like a gummy bear and we all know that I absolutely LOVE my gummy bears.  It was sweet with a fruity taste.  I like to refer to them as pig heaven – snorts.  Mom/dad tried one as well.  Daddy was not a big fan.  He doesn’t know good taste when it comes to gummy bears like me and mom do 🙂  Mom, of course, loved them too.

  You’re probably asking what they look like.  Well, that’s easy.  They look like little pigs 🙂  Except for the package of Percy and Friends.  They have pigs, cows and sheep.  Cool huh?  Here’s a picture of them.

So Misaki and family – thank you so very, very, very MUCH!  I can’t tell you thank you enough.  Thank you so much for thinking of this little oinker and making his week with such a kind and thoughtful gesture.  Many hogs and snout kisses my friend – XOXO – Bacon

Happy Birthday!

20130723-074604.jpg

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PERCY PIG! 

Do you know who Percy Pig is?  He turns 21 today – yay!

Percy Pig is a brand of pig shaped gummy raspberry, strawberry, cherry and grape flavored candies licensed in Germany from Marks & Spencer.

Mommy has Percy Pig on her Facebook page and they posted this morning about Percy’s birthday.  Isn’t that so exciting?  A pig shaped candy?  Who would have ever thought that?  I think it’s fantastic!  A candy that looks like well ME! 🙂

.

Have you ever seen these in the store?  Mom helped me and went on line to find a picture of the candies.

This was taken off of Wikipedia.

Now, do you recognize them?  I wonder if mommy can get some here in the United States?  I bet they would be wonderful!
