Oh my piggy heavens – squeals!  I got a letter from the strawberry I met at Summer Camp – you know Piper.  Piggy swoons – she even sent me pictures.  WOWZER – isn’t she a looker my friends?  Now do you see what I saw in her at camp?  Hubba hubba – I’m attaching her letter for you to read 🙂

Dear Bacon,

I hope my letter and picture finds you safe and happy.  I really enjoyed our times together at Summer Camp a couple of weeks ago.  I’ll be truthful with you – I miss you my oinker friend.  I can’t get you off of my mind.  I dream about you – see the happy look on my face.  I keep reliving our last day together where we shared our first hog and snout kiss – ❤ dreamy.  You know I don’t live too far away.  My mom said she would be game for a piggy date in the future… that is if you want to see me again.  Much love my porky love.  Love and ❤ kisses – Your Piper

Special Thanks To Laura Gerry who sent “Piper’s” pictures.  You are so awesome our friend ❤

Pringles Guy vs Monopoly Guy

  I’ve had a lot of time on my hooves lately… especially when I learned that mom/dad are sending me to Summer Camp.  So I’ve done a lot of surfing the net on the subject.  But during my research, I came across something interesting.

Have you ever noticed that the guy from Monopoly and the guy from the Pringles can (potato chips), look an awful alike.  You think they are the same guy, distant cousins or no relationship at all?  Do you see the similarities?  Something is definitely the same there.

This is My Pitiful Look

20140424-092317.jpg

My friends – My friends.  I’m working on some extra snuggles from mommy this weekend.  She is not bending on this Summer Camp thing.  Do I really have to go??  I’m really trying hard to beg, cry for mercy, anything.  Nothing is working.

Do I look pitiful enough here in this picture giving mom snuggles?  I was having a deep conversation with her when dad snapped this picture. Mom said that she is going to put this one in a frame beside her bed so she can look at me every night before she goes to sleep.  Don’t worry, she said she is going to pack me one too for Camp.

Squeals – but I don’t wanna go!

Piggy Ramblings

  Let’s ramble a bit shall we my friends?  First up let’s talk about birthdays. Mom is a little blue today – in a good way though.  Her baby Houdini turns the big ONE.  Of course mom tells all of us anipals that we are ALL her babies which we know.  And now Chip (Bashful’s son and my grandson) is almost potty trained.  All of the babies are growing up so fast here at the Hotel Thompson.

Also mom has been doing this DIEt thing.  Lord help us all here.  Mom says she is doing things differently this time with her DIEt and she is recording everything that passes her lips in a journal on her iPhone (there’s an app for that – snorts).  She tells daddy every night that you just don’t understand how many calories you are consuming until you start logging them.  It has definitely been an eye opener for mom.  We all tread lightly around her on this DIEt.  Of course, with mom cutting back that means we here area also cutting back.  See how that flows down hill?  This interprets to less Animal Crackers for me and less chips for daddy throughout the day.  But then mommy has to go to the worky place during the week – insert evil snorts.  What she doesn’t know happens here when she is gone is a great thing.

Another happening thing here at the Hotel Thompson is the demise of mom’s laptop several months ago.  Bless her heart – it was a slow death of the Toshiba.  Toshiba was a great one and served years of hard work.  Mom used my laptop for a while but it wasn’t the same.  She complained something about piggy drool.  What?  It is *my* computer – rolls piggy eyes.  She has been using her iPhone and iPad for Facebook and blogging but she complained about the keyboard and something about when she gets on a roll she can’t type as fast as she wants due to the lack of a ‘real’ keyboard.  WOW – she is such a princess, isn’t she?  Snorts

Well yesterday, a package arrived not for me but for mom.  Amazing that they didn’t turn the package away because mom never gets packages.  She opened it up last night.  Of course, all of us anipals were right there in her lap and on the box to help out and see what it was.  Hey, it’s what we do.  She opened up a box and then another box inside of that box.  It almost seemed like Christmas and the anticipation was killing us all.  Then she struck gold – she got herself a new laptop.  I think I heard angels singing but maybe that was just the television.  She oohh and aaww over it while setting it up.  You would have thought she was in heaven and she might have been.  She was deliriously happy.  And you know what – that made us all happy.  Even daddy when she gave him the receipt for the bill – snorts.

Enough ramblings from this oinker.  What’s going on in your part of the world?  Anything funny?  Anything you want to talk about and share?

Oh and one more thing – I sounded like Columbo on that didn’t I?  Snorts – Love that detective.  Mom told daddy last night that she wished he came with a remote control with a mute button.  I’m not sure what that meant.  Do you?  Daddy just laughed and kept on singing and talking.

Grow a Boyfriend

 Oh dear piggy heavens above.  This is way too funny.  I couldn’t resist sharing with everyone.  Anyone need a boyfriend?  Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

Piggy Ramblings

I’ve got a lot on my piggy mind lately.  Nothing particular just aimless ramblings from my point of view.  I do a lot of listening around the Hotel Thompson.  Sometimes it’s better to listen than oink.  So today I’m going to share some of those things that I’ve heard.

Mom has an ear ache.  She told daddy she could hear it slushing.  I’m not sure what that means but it doesn’t sound good.

Houdini got groomed this week.  Now he’s walking around like he owns the place.  Go figure huh?

Coming up this week is a long weekend.  I’m glad.  I need some extra snuggles from mom.  I think she could use it too.

I’ve gotten more used to the feel of grass on my hooves.  I still don’t like it but I don’t hide from it anymore.  I still think of myself as more of an air conditioned piggy than a hot piggy.

There’s something big that has happened in my life.  I’m hoping to share more about it next month.  It’s huge.  It’s been a little over a month and I’ve been adjusting to it.  It’s big.  Heck, we’ve all been adjusting to it here at the Hotel Thompson.  Just wait until you find out about it.  You’ll be thrilled too.

Mom has started that DIEt thing again.  Lord help us all.  She says that she needs to do it so dad can get aboard the DIEt thing.  Shakes piggy head.  Help me.  I’m saying that now because I can tell it’s going to be rough the next couple of months.

Hemi should join that show called Fear Factor.  Mom says so because he has no fear.  He has been jumping around the house from shelves to couch to mom’s chaise.  Of course mom gets on to him but he still does it.  I heard mom tell dad that Hemi was pushing her over the edge and it was a short trip.  I don’t get that because I haven’t seen any edges like that in the house.

Mouse Girl has gained weight.  Maybe she needs to be put on the DIEt thing.  I’m not sure.  She is what did dad say, butt heavy.  And of course, Houdini has the biggest crush on her.  I mean huge.  Houdini keeps chasing after her and you want to hear something funny.  Of course, I don’t get it but mom and dad laugh hysterically when daddy says it.  Every time Houdini chases Mouse Girl, dad tells Houdini, “Leave her alone Houdini.  She’s too much pussy for you.”  What?  I don’t get it.

Piggy Money

I gotta say my friends – how do you think I look in money?  This is suppose to be shaped like me – a piggy.  Do you see the resemblance?  It might be that cute little snout?

Score for the Piggy!

Score for me!  The Easter bun-bun didn’t forget about my love for peeps.  The Easter bun-bun brought me not necessarily a “Peep” product but something similar and look at it – it’s shaped like something I know but I can’t put my snout on it – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

It’s a piggy vanilla marshmallow like peep thing.  I was so thrilled to have found it in the bottom of my big bucket.  And trust me my friends.  It was delicious!  Of course, I ate it’s head off first.  What?  Mom was holding his feet – snorts.

And yes – I ate the whole thing.  Daddy couldn’t understand why I was running around the Hotel Thompson afterwards.  Maybe it was all of that sugar sweet daddy of mine.  Snorts – thankfully there wasn’t anyone else here when I devoured my little friend.  Have you ever seen anything so cute?  Squeals!

Happy National Cereal Day –

20140222-190037.jpg

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

.

.

March 7th is NATIONAL CEREAL DAY.. you know breakfast cereal. Did you know that cereal is the most convenient form of breakfast? It’s quick and easy. Get a bowl, pour cereal, top with milk and enjoy! And, there’s so many different kinds of cereal out there! You can add fruit to it. You can top it with nuts or raisins. You can top it with granola. You can even add honey, maple syrup or crushed fruit. However you eat it, it can be a delicious way to start your day or end your day.

20130306-093317.jpg

Now, I know this is going to be hard to believe but hang with me for just a minute.  That pig – you know the one they call Bacon on this blog.  This is a picture of his piggy chow in his breakfast bowl that he gets every morning.  Do you know what the little oinker has on top of his piggy chow?  Anyone – anyone at all?  Cheerios!  Can you believe that?!  Even Bacon will be enjoying this day like all others with a topping of Cheerios on his piggy chow.  He doesn’t care what kind, he likes them all!  Regular, chocolate, banana nut, multi-grain, dulce de leche, peanut butter – all of them!

.

I mean think about it.  Cheerios are not just for the heart conscious adults – it’s for the little man too.  He has to watch his heart and health so he can be here for a very long time as well.  Bacon and his mom eat their Cheerios together every morning… of course his mother doesn’t have piggy chow added to hers which is good to know.

So on this National Cereal Day, enjoy a nice bowl of cereal – perhaps even Cheerios and think about the little pig.

OH – And don’t you just LOVE Bacon’s dads special spoon for his cereal eating habits?

National Pig Day

TODAY IS *MY* DAY!

Normally, I would let me friend Journalist Rocky the Squirrel tell you about important and interesting holidays.  But today, well today is *my* day.

I bet you didn’t know that I have an entire holiday to myself? Well – I do!! Today is National Pig Day. I wait all year for my holiday. This is my third one and the party is on!

But you’re probably asking yourself what is national pig day?

“National Pig Day

National Pig Day is an event held annually on March 1 in the United States to celebrate the pig. The holiday celebration was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley, a teacher in Lubbock, Texas, and Mary Lynne Rave of Beaufort, North Carolina.

According to Rave, the purpose of National Pig Day is “to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.”

 20140112-012012.jpg

Since today is my day, I get to do what I want… within limitations. I get my favorite foods. I get the extra loving and snuggles. I get a piggy massage. I get my hooves done. Whatever I want – it’s all about pleasing this piggy. To all my fellow pig friends – cash in on this our holiday – enjoy it to the fullest!!

Yawn, I think I’ll start like I am in this picture.  On the couch and snuggled with mommy!
