Shopping with Mom/Dad

Okay soon there will be a law that mom/dad can’t go shopping together anymore in the future without a chaperone.  I’m just saying.  They went out this weekend and returned home laughing and joking about something.  You know I’m a curious pig so I investigated in mom’s cell phone.  Shaking my head.  Those two – Oh My Piggy Heavens!  No daddy.  Pink is not your color.  Absolutely not.  Do not try it on.  Do not buy it.  Put it back!!

MY EYES!!  What is the worse thing you have seen in your humans cell phone??

Paw Time with Houdini


 Hello my friends.  I do hope that your week has been amazing.  Mine has been full of love and fun and food and adventures here at the Hotel Thompson.  Pirate Chicken number three has made an appearance and been given a great play all week long.  I’m happy or is unhappy to report that his squeak still works.  He may have to walk the plank a couple of more times before that subsides.  Barks!  What?  It’s what I do.

This picture was taken this week by mommy.  I’ve been fighting for a lot of lap time this week.  Mommy was able to snap this picture when I had just awakened from a comfortable nap all covered up on her.

Don’t let the pink shirt fool you.  Manly men are starting to wear pink now.  And between me and you – I think I make this pink shirt.  What do you think?

Now without further ado, let’s give daddy his five minutes in the limelight – barks with puppy laughter!

Snorticles – Way to go Daddy!

   Friends – I want to tell you a story about my daddy.  You know there is a love/hate relationship that goes on between us.  Nothing to fear really.  But sometimes my daddy can be so darn goofy that I have to rat him out.  This is one of those cases – snorts with piggy laughter.

Mom had to go back to the doctors office this morning for a follow up.  At that point, the doctor told her that he wanted to take some blood to do blood work on the situation.  Of course, it helps to know that my mom *hates* needles.  If she doesn’t see it coming, she’s relatively okay.  But, if she sees the situation, it’s not good.

So the nurse comes in to draw the blood while daddy and the doctor watch.  Mom sees the needle – bad move Ms. Nurse.  So mom is flinching and shivering.  Daddy tells her to mom up and suck it up.  Perhaps that should be put on dad’s headstone… “Told mom to suck it up.”  Because you know mom’s head probably turned all the way around at this time to fuss at that daddy of mine.  Who you also have to know is a jokester at heart and didn’t say this to mom to be mean.

Well about that time, the doctor tells the nurse to hold on for a minute.  The doctor then asks daddy when he had blood work done last.  HA!  Way to go Mr. Doctor.  So guess who got blood work drawn before mommy – snorts with piggy laughter.  Way to go daddy in putting your size 10 foot in your mouth.  And yes, mommy might have told daddy to suck it up too.

And of course after daddy’s blood work, the nurse knew better than to show mommy the needle this time.  Afterwards, mom/dad walked out hand and hand with their taped arms.  Oh for those keeping up, that’s dad’s arm with the pretty PINK tape – snorts and oinks my friends.

Yay or Nay

    Okay mom got her nails done this week.  She is … what did she say… conflicted.  She doesn’t know if she loves the new paint or if she hates it.  So we are throwing it out there – yay or nay?

It’s kind of a speckled color mixed with white, pink and black.  Dad says it looks like Marble counter top that you would find in the kitchen – Snorts.  He does have one thing right about that – mom’s expensive tastes – HA!  Rolls with piggy laughter on that.

They also have this speckled look in sapphire, white and black and red, white and black which are possibilities for next time if she figures out if she likes this or not.  She said she was also looking at maybe getting white tips with this look next time – whatever that means.

So what do you think?  Here’s another close up look.  It kind of grows on you?

Shakes Piggy Head

Oh friends.  I have to admit that life is *never* boring here at the Hotel Thompson – EVER!  Especially when those two humans of mine that I call parents are involved.  They are always up to trouble when they go out unchaperoned.  This week has been no difference.

First up daddy.  Let me start by saying that Houdini was NOT hurt in dad’s latest antics.  You are already shaking your head aren’t you – snorts.  You see mommy had to run an errand at this party store and daddy went with her.  Daddy wanted to look at the balloons while mom got what she needed.  When she came back to get daddy, he was talking with a store clerk and they were snorting and laughing together.  She knew right then something was up.  Shakes piggy head – you know this can’t go well right?  So mom asks what is going on, what is so funny.  That’s when the store clerk and daddy shook hands, quit laughing and the clerk walked away.  Mom was persistent though and asked daddy what was that all about.  Do you know what he had the nerve to tell her?  Daddy and the clerk were talking about how many helium balloons it would take to make Houdini fly.  What in the world!?  Okay, I admit it.  It would be fun to watch and according to size/weight the number would probably be 6 or 7.  Mom was not so happy about that.  Of course, daddy tried to convince her he wouldn’t do it outside, only indoors, but she wasn’t buying it – snorts.  I wonder why?

IMG_0509Then, I saw this picture on mom’s iPhone.  OMP (oh my pig!) shakes my piggy head.  There really aren’t words here to as what daddy is doing. Is he riding the unicorn, mugging the unicorn or training the unicorn?  God only knows when it concerns my daddy.

Mom tried to explain the picture to me.  She said that daddy saw this pink think in a box and pulled it out.  Yep a pink unicorn – how realistic this time of year huh?  Of course, the unicorn got tired and sat on the floor.  Daddy wanted to ride it – shakes piggy head – why I don’t know.  But giddy up unicorn.

Now here’s what you don’t see in the picture.  Mommy said people started watching and laughing and pointing.  Who wouldn’t right?  And you don’t see in the bottom left hand corner of the picture which I conveniently blocked out was a woman bending over.  Let’s just say that she had more crack showing than a plumber… or a side street.  Snorts – now *that* is what had me cracking up.  Poor lady.

IMG_0516

And don’t think that daddy is the only culprit that gets into trouble when out unchaperoned.  Oh no – my mommy fits right into some big shoes – literally.  Do you like her new red shoes for Christmas?  She says that a woman can NEVER have too many shoes.  Okay.  I just don’t know.  Shakes piggy head.

So tell me this my friends.  My humans are not the only ones with these skills for trouble – right?  Snorts.

My Bedtime

Bedtime at the Hotel Thompson is really a good time for me.  You’re probably thinking, “What is that pig talking about now?”  You see, I’m a kid at heart but when it comes to bedtime mommy makes it fun.  Therefore, I don’t mind going to bed.  Does that make sense now to you?  No?  Okay, here’s the scoop.

When mommy tells me it’s bedtime and to go get ready for bed, I usually jump off of the sofa where I’ve been sitting with her and stumble down the hall to my bedroom.  I do my business on my wizzy pad, yawn a couple of times and jump in bed.  Then mom comes in, tucks me in and reads me a story until I fall asleep.  See picture to the left – that’s me all smiling from my bedtime story.  And yes, that’s my favorite king size Egyptian cotton sheet.  I ❤ that sheet!

Then after I’m asleep, sometimes mom goes into the connecting room to my bedroom.  She turns on her little pink light and keeps the door open so she can see me.  And yes I said pink light – snorts.  She likes the ‘lightness’ of the lamp and you know the full light would wake this little oinker.  Then she starts her writing.  Now, when she does this you would think that it would wake me up but it doesn’t.  It’s kind of like when humans fall asleep with the fan on in their bedroom.  It’s what they call ‘white noise’ and helps you sleep.  And if mom is working up a storm, the tap-tap-tap of the keyboard is like this ‘white noise’ to me.  It kind of comforts me.  For you to experience it this ‘white noise’, I had mom record it for you.  Tell me what you think.  Is it comforting to you?

Really Dad? You’re Not Invited

Let’s start by saying, me and mom are so NOT morning peeps.  We have a schedule that we keep in the mornings.  I wake her up for breakfast.  She gets up and we eat together.  Then we bundle on the couch together and listen to the morning news as we cuddle for a couple of more minutes of snooze together.  Do you get the picture?  Together as in me and mommy time alone.  NOTICE I didn’t say: me, mommy and daddy.  There was no mention of daddy.  It’s called me and mommy time for a reason.  Let me say again… me and mommy.  So you got that, right?

So this morning of ALL mornings on a Monday, guess who decides to get up with us and infiltrate into “our” time?  That’s right – daddy.  Not just daddy but non-stop-diarrhea-of-the-mouth talking daddy.  Go back to bed daddy!  Really.  But no… let’s keep chatting away.  Let’s keep singing away to Eddie Rabbit… to Elvis Presley… to Brooks and Dunn… to Pink.  Yep, you read right – Pink.  Rolls piggy eyes and shrugs shoulders.

You see, this is the problem.  Daddy is a morning person.  He wakes up happy, chirpy, full of life and wonderment.  Me and mom not so much.  Even this little oinker knows not to talk to mommy until after that first cup of coffee… sometimes maybe a second.  And hey – I’m not that jolly myself in the morning.  I have one thing on my mind – food.  And then some snuggles.  Sometimes not in that particular order.

Daddy was so bad this morning – a MONDAY of all days, that me and mom went to her room.  I got on the big bed and watched her get ready for work.  Guess who followed us?  Mouthy man!  I could see mommy and the steam was rising.  She looked at me and I could just picture her in my head telling daddy, “SILENCE!”  But she didn’t – it was a nice dream though.  Poor dad.  He was like a little puppy this morning following us around.  I thought at one time I heard mommy mumble, “Jabber Jaws” under her breath.  I can’t be sure though.  Of all days, I think mommy was ready to go to work.  She kissed me and put me back to bed for a morning nap.  Daddy even followed her to the car.  It’s going to be a long day for me here at the Hotel Thompson.  Please pray for me that daddy goes back down for a nap.  Snorts.  Do you have a morning person in your house?  What do you do when they get over obnoxious?

Way to go Daddy!

I gotta give dad this – he knows exactly what to do sometimes.  For instance, this afternoon.  Today is a special day for mom at the worky place.  It is Administrative Professionals Day.  I know mommy is not dad’s per say ‘secretary’ but she is the keeper of the Hotel Thompson.  So, in a way you can say she is.

So when mom gets home, daddy is going to meet her at the door with two options.  He’s going to tell her to choose one for now and the other for later.  What a gesture.  I can’t tell you which one she is going to pick… you’ll have to guess 🙂  Or should I say, which one would YOU pick?

I’m In Love

WITH A PINK PIG!

I’ve heard daddy talk about this pink pig downtown.  I’ve been slightly intrigued with the thoughts of meeting a pink pig.  Yesterday while watching the news with daddy in the afternoon, I saw it on television.  OMP (oh my pig!).

It’s outrageous.  I’m intrigued.  It’s pink.  I’m curious.  It’s downtown.

You are probably asking yourself what the heck is the little miniature pot-bellied pig rambling on about?  I’ll tell you.

In downtown Atlanta for more than 50 years, Atlantans have started their holiday with the tradition of riding the Macy’s Pink Pig.  The Pink Pig is a train on top of the Lenox Square Mall.  It is held beneath a 170 foot 1950’s themed Pink Pig tent.  Kids of all ages come and ride the train – yep all ages.  That includes my daddy who acts like he is five – snorts.

The Pink Pig is called Priscilla – hubba hubba.  The Pink Pig train goes through the tracks of a life sized storybook with characters like Priscilla and her friends.

Daddy says that he remembers riding the Pink Pig when he was a child.  Unfortunately, mommy never did 😦   I told mommy that I would give her piggy back rides around the house but she said it wasn’t the same?

But this year, daddy says he wants to change that.  He wants mommy to be able to ride the Pink Pig and be part of a southern tradition here in Georgia.  Aaaww – isn’t that sweet?  Personally, I think daddy just wants to be a child again and ride it himself – snorts.  I wonder if they will let me ride it?

Do you have any traditions where you are that kind of starts of the holidays for you?

Birthday Cake Suggestion for the Mommy

20130220-085227.jpg 

Okay, I know mom’s birthday is still off several months in the making but this cake is the bomb!  This is the one that she needs.  They had me salivating at the Kit Kat bars surrounding that luscious chocolate mud… let alone my kind swimming in that chocolate.  Mom would definitely break down and perhaps shed a tear of joy if she received this cake for her big day.  Plus it has a pink ribbon – mom loves pink.

There would be no doubt that she would be thinking of me when she saw this cake.  I always have to make sure that I’m in the front of all of her thoughts.

What do you think about this piece of brillance?
