Hello friends of the Hotel Thompson. This is Sherlock Bones reporting in from Chicago, Illinois. Do you remember who I am? I am Bacon, Houdini’s and Hemi’s cousin (my mom is Bacon’s mom’s sister). WOW – that’s a lot to follow isn’t it? Well guess what? The gang’s mom/dad are not at the Hotel Thompson. The gang of anipals are at Nana’s for a couple of days. Why do you ask?
Because I have kidnapped them and they are magically here with me… and my two purr things – Poseidon and Marmalade. Trust me, we are all taking good care of the pawrents. We won’t let them get into too much trouble… but considering Bacon’s dad I think that asks for way too much, right? And we all know where Bacon’s dad will be. At any spectacular restaurant he can find – howls with laughter! So stay tuned next week. I’m sure there will be lots of details to spill.
Dear Bacon – I’m just being friendly. That’s it. Really I am. He looked so lonely in the cage. I just thought I would pop in to say hey and you know give him a reassuring pat of assurance from me. That’s it. Really. Signed Felix the Friendly Kitty
Dear Felix the Friendly Kitty – Sure buddy. Whatever you say. Just remember though that the proof is now in pictures. That means no mistakes in your friendly ‘pats of assurance’. Just sayin’ my friend.
Dear Bacon – I’ve heard you come from a long line of football players. We know not players per say but footballs themselves – Barks! Well, we gotta game going in our hood all of the time. Next time you are in the area, join us. And don’t worry, we won’t deflate the ball at all. Signed Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady
Dear Peyton, Tom, Eli and Brady – What guys you are. Thanks for the invite and I will definitely keep that in mind. Can’t wait for the football season to start this year!.
Dear Bacon – There was this pot that mom had on the porch. She grows beautiful things in it. So I was thinking that I’m a puppy and maybe for me to grow into something beautiful, I would pot myself. I jumped in and added water. Is it working yet? Signed Puppy Flower
Dear Puppy Flower – I don’t really think that is how it happens my friend. But on the other hoof, you look really cute in that bucket. And hey you got a bath out of it too. I say just be you. You are going to grow up soon enough. And remember one final thought buddy. You are already beautiful.
Dear Bacon – Sometimes no matter how small you are, one needs to draw the line. The humans put me in a wine glass. What.were.they.thinking? A wine glass. I’m not a wine glass kind of pup. I think I’m more of an oversized coffee cup kind of pooch. What do you think? Signed Small Barks
Dear Small Barks – I have to say my friend, either way I think you are cute in either a wine glass or a coffee cup. I think you should play it for everything it’s worth. Make the humans pay in so many different ways – extra treats, extra puppy chow. .
Dear Bacon – I have to say a puppy power nap is sometimes the best thing you can do. I highly recommend them any time during the day or night. Take notes from me pal. Don’t forget your blankie and pillow. Signed Sleepy Town
Dear Sleepy Town – WOW! You are the posted child for a puppy power nap my friend. I love it and trust me. I am so taking notes!
REMEMBER my friends – Dear Bacon issues can’t happen without YOU. Please remember to email me your picture and letters.
Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –
May 20th is a wonderful glorious day. It is National Pick Strawberries Day – what a great
day to enjoy. I know that this is a day that the pig Bacon can wrap those jowls around. He absolutely LOVES strawberries and that’s a huge understatement.
Today, start a new tradition. Go find a strawberry field and pick your own strawberries. Start a family tradition. I think Bacon’s mom is actually going to go and pick the little fellow a few of his own today. I wonder if they will let Bacon come and pick his own? Chitter Chatter – that would be a picture for the blog! Enjoy my friends!
Welcome my friends to another week of Rocky’s Nut Brunch. Today I want to share something with you that I found and was in awe about. In fact, I immediately had to call Bacon’s dad and tell him. This was huge news. Do you know who Lee Jun-fan is? Maybe you know him better from his stage name – Bruce Lee. Bells go off now? He was a Hong Kong and American actor famous for his martial art skills. He was even the founder of his own studio in the martial art Jeet Kune Do. The man had skills upon skills with his moves. He is also known for his quotes. One of them being:
Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless and add what is specifically your own
That makes you think doesn’t it? But I’m done yet blowing your mind on Bruce Lee. Let’s talk about Bruce Lee way back when he was a teenager. In 1958, what championship do you think he won? Go ahead and guess. I bet you never would guess the answer. We were all shocked here at the Hotel Thompson. What was it? In 1958, Bruce Lee was the Hong Kong Cha Cha championship winner. Stunner huh? So there you go, that blows our minds. Did you know this?
See I can be a good boy… most of the time anyway. But on this particular day, I had the patience of a saint! Really I did. Remember last Sunday being Mother’s Day? Well, the one thing that my mommy doesn’t get a lot of is sleeping in on the weekends. So Sunday, daddy got all of us up and out of the bedroom so mom could just sleep in. He fed us all and we tried to stay quiet. Of course daddy feeding us isn’t the same as mommy feeding us and talking to us. But we gave her a day.
I sat patiently on daddy and the side of the couch waiting for mom to come out of their bedroom and down the hall. I was on guard waiting… waiting… and then waiting some more… and then it happened.
Mom came out of the bedroom!
I’m not sure which one of us was more happy. We barked, grunted and meowed and then dad grunted cause he was happy mommy was finally going to take him out to eat… of course her choice of restaurant for her day. And then, you know letting those two out together there is going to be some trouble. Check out the video they made Mother’s Day. Shaking my head. Even after almost 30 years, those two are gross.
