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!

And He Is Off Again!

The other night, mom/dad took Bashful out for some Mexican food.  They like to call that his “Going Away” Party.  He gobbled down his two hard shelled beef taco’s and then flirted with all of the staff talking about his adventures.  The places my rock has been!  The restaurant even told hi Bon Voyage to his next trip.  Heck, I wished we had signed Bashful up for Skymiles.  Just think of the miles we could have accumulated over the years.

But at last, mom took him to the ‘airport’ this morning and sent him off on his next adventure.  Where will he land?  What will he do?  What will he eat?  Where will he roll?  And the most important question – Who will he be visiting?

Travels in the South

Hello sweet friends to the first Travels in the South for 2017!  Today I want to show you something that comes from the kitchen of the Hotel Thompson.  You are going to love this!

When my pet rock was visiting Miss Harper Lee and Tallulah Bee in New Orleans, Louisiana, Bashful got hooked on a specialty there named Red Beans and Rice.  If you look here, you will find the recipe and pictures from that trip.

Well when Bashful came home, there were some of those amazing Camellia beans in his package.  So you know mom had to try them.  So this past Monday, mom put on a huge pot just like Miss Harper Lee’s mom does on Mondays.

When it was ready to serve, mom whipped up some rice and of course her homemade cornbread to go with dinner.  And let me tell you, it is an awesome recipe.  Dad had two bowls!  Does that tell you anything?

So friends – there you go.  A dish from mom’s kitchen!  Thanks Miss Harper for the recipe and wonderful beans.  This just might be our weekly dinner on Monday’s now.  ❤

Bashful Gets a Taste of Gumbo and Brass Bands

Oh friends – have you been wondering what my little Bashful has been doing in New Orleans? Well you gotta check it out – he’s been rolling around having a blast! XOXO – Bacon

It’s been a while since I’ve given you an update on Bashful’s New Orleans adventures. Every time I turn around, that little fella is hopping into my human mommy’s purse and they’re headed out the door. I finally got those two to sit down long enough to tell me where they’ve been and to share a few photos. Wow. They’ve been busy. A couple of weekends ago, Bashful joined both of my humans at Armstrong Park for the Treme Creole Gumbo Festival–New Orleans’ Premier Brass Band Showcase, which is presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. In New Orleans, we love a festival. There’s at least one every month–sometimes one each weekend of the month–and they usually revolve around tasty food and great music.

This festival features gumbo of every sort you can imagine: creole gumbo, seafood gumbo, chicken and sausage gumbo, even vegan gumbo and…

This Special Delivery Rocks

OH FRIENDS – Wonder no more. Check out where my little Bashful is and the adventures have already begun! ❤ XOXO – Bacon

Last Friday, my little sister and I received a very special delivery from our sweet little piggy friend Bacon. (If you already know Bacon, then you know what a special little pig he is. If you don’t know Bacon, click here to link to his blog. I promise you’ll fall in love.) To say that our box from Bacon sent both of us into a tizzy would be quite the understatement. It was packed full of everything a girl could ever want.

Tallulah and I were especially obsessed over the pink piggy toy. We spent quite a bit of time trying to dismember him, but he’s tough and managed to survive . . . at least for the first round.

As fabulously fun as the pink piggy toy and the fancy treats were, there was something even more special in that little box from Bacon. Meet Bashful, Bacon’s pet rock. As…

And He’s Off Again

He’s off again my friends!

Mom took Bashful to his fight earlier this week for his next host family.  Where in the world will Bashful end up at?  Any guesses?

UPDATE:  Mom just received a phone call that Bashful has landed and is at his host family.  Stay tuned ❤

One Lovely Blog Award

Squeals with piggy excitement!!  OMP – I got nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by my sweet friends over at Ladybuggz.  What a fantastic way to end the month.  Thank you my sweet friends for thinking of this little oinker and his group of misfit friends

Be sure to check out Ladybuggz when you get a chance and tell them that Bacon sent you.

❤   ❤   ❤   ❤

The rules are as follows:

  1. Post to accept the nomination
  2. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
  3. List 7 things about yourself.
  4. Link to the blogs you nominate.
  5. Notify the recipients of their award.
  6. Post the rules!

Here are seven things about me:

  1. I’m a miniature pot belly oinker.  But I’m not just any oinker.  I’m talented, write a blog, have my own bedroom with my own television and have my mom wrapped around my  hooves right where I need her.
  2. For years, I wouldn’t go outside to potty because I didn’t like the feel of grass on my hooves.  Nowadays, I’ve gotten used to it although I still hate going outside in the heat.
  3. My favorite snack is Animal Crackers.  I will do anything you want for a few cookies.  Darn this pot belly of mine!
  4. I have a pet rock named Bashful who travels the world and brings home friends each time he returns.  They also live in my bedroom and can be quite loud at times.  Don’t let them fool you.  They are party animals and love to play hide and go seek.
  5. I love to watch television.  I especially like the old school cartoons.  You know the ones like the original Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, The Jetsons – you know the good toons before they went crazy.  Mom can turn my television on and I will watch for horrors.
  6. There is only food at this time that I absolutely can not stand.  What is it?  It is kumquats.  Yucky.  Pooey.  Gross.  Mom gave me one and one of my ears went south and the other went north at the same time.  I spit it out and will not eat them.  In fact, I told mom to try one.  Do you know her ears did the same thing?  Snorts with piggy laughter.
  7. Have you ever heard of cow tipping?  Well mom says that she likes to pig tip me.  Rolls my piggy eyes.  There’s one spot on my side that mom can rub and boom – there I go.  I tip over, kick my hind legs and let mom rub my belly.  What can I say?  I’m easy like that.

Seven Nominations:

Of course, I would like to nominate anyone that doesn’t have this award yet.  If you don’t have it, please feel free to accept this award from my piggy heart.  Other than that, here are my choices:

My awesome friends Kali and Shoko from Canadian Cats

My brother Easy 

My buddies Hailey and Zaphod at the Hailey/Zaphod Chronicles

The Gang at Jan’s Funny Farm

My cousin Sammy at OneSpoiledCat

My nefkitty Purrince Siddhartha Henry

The dear friends Sam and Elsa at Tailsaroundtheranch
