Oh my sweet friends – I hope you had a wonderful LONG weekend – a happy one with lots of rest and relaxation. I did – snorts – but I can’t say the same for my humans. You see, my humans have been slackers lately. There I said it and they know it’s true. Mom has been playing catch up with so many things that she has been juggling in her life. Finally, I had to sit her down this weekend and have a human to piggy talk with her. She has to catch up… like NOW. So Saturday, I made her finish doing some shopping for me. I have so many things to get sent out… you know a piggy has to put his hoof down, right?
But first up – I think I have forgotten something to post about Bashful. I’m sure some of you saw where when he came back from Australia this past time he had a son named Chip. Who can deny that parentage with the matching grin, huh? You can check the post out here of when Bashful came home. He had a ball in Australia visiting Fozzie while they went on vacation to the Great Barrier Reef. But they also found out about Bimby having his baby out of wedlock when they did the movie “Rockadile Dundee”. Long story short, Bimby went into rehab (bless her heart) and Bashful signed paperwork taking custody of his son Chip. Chip was just a mere baby when he came home here to the Hotel Thompson so we’ve had to get him through the diaper stage – unbelievable how much water a little rock can make my friends. Shakes piggy head.
And of course when Bashful came home, not only did he have his son Chip but he also came home with Hudson. See, I don’t believe I posted about this. It’s been so crazy here at the Hotel Thompson over the past several months! Hudson is adorable, isn’t he? All the way from Australia and what a cute little accent. He has been hanging out here with the other pet rocks and has a cute little chemistry with Rockelle who is also from Australia – who would have guess huh?.
You see I’m telling you all of this because I *finally* got mom to get all of my shopping done so that we could send out not only Bashful but his son Chip to the next person on the list. So you see this bag to the right? There are four envelopes in that bag that got mailed out this morning from the good ole United States Postal Service. One of them contain Bashful and Chip.
Three other envelopes are gifts for different friends in blogville. Just who will receive them? What do they contain? Aren’t you excited to see what goes where and who gets what? I know! The anticipation is killing this little oinker. I just hope mom remembered to pack everything I told her and to sign the cards – snorts. Wouldn’t that be hilarious? Maybe not… maybe I need to go ask her to double check.
And of course after mommy finished going to the post office, filling out Customs declarations and spending money, she just had to come back to a nice gooey ooey Salted Pecan cupcake. She said that was her payment for standing in line and filling our forms for me. Sure mom – that’s fine. As long as you got my packages out – knock yourself out.
Snorts and oinks my friends. I’ll definitely keep you posted on the travels of my packages 🙂

Supposedly in the postal world – you can mail an actual potato. I guess with enough stamps, you can mail anything. But this intrigues me. Can you really mail a potato? I ❤ potatoes. Of any kind. Of any size. Of any nationality.
Now with that being said, who wants to take a challenge and mail me a potato? Do you really think it will work? Anyone – anyone at all?
mmm – potatoes – hash browns – french fries – mashed potatoes – twice cooked baked potatoes – grilled mashed potatoes – home fries – crispy potato roast – scalloped potatoes –
do I need to go on? mmm – potatoes

With mommy being sick and Houdini being sick during the holidays, we weren’t real timely in getting some thank you’s out that we needed to. Please forgive us for our delay my friends.
The first thank you we want to throw out is to Auntie Sharon of Gentlestitches. She sent us the coolest Christmas card. Why do you ask? Because we are not used to seeing Santa Claus at the beach – snorts. Here, we celebrate Christmas in the cold whereas in Australia it’s the Summer. Such a neat different huh? Maybe one day mom/dad can celebrate in Australia – wouldn’t that be fun?
With the card she sent, she sent me a cute little black piggy – remind you of anyone? Snorts – oinks. And she sent a red Christmas hat. See it in the picture? Squeals – I was so excited! I let mommy bring it to her office to put on her desk. That way she can look at it and (1) think of Auntie Sharon and (2) think of this little oinker during the day – snorts.
Then Auntie Sharon sent me a 2015 calendar! OMP (Oh my pig!) Look at these awesome pictures throughout the year. I was so excited. Auntie Sharon said that she had been to most of these places in Australia – WOW! They are so beautiful. And I’ll tell you a secret. These pictures made dad turn a little green. He wasn’t sick or anything. He was green with envy – evil snorts. He wants to visit them too.
Mom is going to hang this calendar in my bedroom for me to look at during the year. Oh, ignore mom’s fingers int he picture. It’s so hard to teach her how to take great pics 🙂
The next person I want to give a shout out and a thank you to is my brother Easy. Now this is a funny tale. Easy and his staff sent a package to me on 12/12/2014. I didn’t get it until Friday, 01/02/2015. Amazing huh? If only we had strapped a camera on to this package to see the places it went! It was rubber banded together, shrink wrapped and then taped together by the post office. I actually had to get daddy to help me open it 🙂
But when I did – squeals – it was like Christmas all over again! Look at the stash that was in the bag – ALL of us anipals were so excited. Mommy snagged the piggy calendar.. something about first dibs. I’m not sure what that meant – snorts. The cats grabbed their treats. Me and Houdini grabbed the pillow and toys. It was a blast!
And get a look at that pillow – what a catch! The little hands stick out off of the pillow. Houdini would get on top of it and it looked like the hands were hugging him. OMP! It was hilarious!
But there was one toy in the bag that is strictly Houdini’s. He has had so much fun with this ‘newspaper’. He grabbed it mumbling something about dibs – what is that? – and took off through the Hotel Thompson. This thing has a high squeak and trust me. The dog knows how to squeak his newspaper. It was a snort of a good time for the little guy this weekend. I played with the ball that was in the bag. For some reason, I don’t mind pushing it around with my snout. Not too much though because it’s still winter and I really don’t do much in the winter except sleep, eat, poop, sleep, eat, pee – snorts. You get the picture.
So dear friends – thank YOU so very much from the bottom of all of our hearts here at the Hotel Thompson. We really, REALLY enjoyed our gifts.
