Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER

 HOGS AND KISSES – it’s a wonderful and joyous day!

I love Easter.  I love everything about it.  I love the fun.  I love the excitement.  I love the actual meaning of Easter.  I love it all!

Mom makes is so special for all of us.  She fixes us all baskets just for us – squeals!  She leaves them out the night before and we each get to come into the room to find our basket.

The purr things got their usual of cat treats, a bag of Iams – their favorite and a couple of play mice.  They were happy – more so for the basket then what was in it – snorts.  Silly purr things.  They are so weird playing with their basket before finding their stuff inside.  Shakes piggy head.

Houdini got a little basket full of dog treats – he loves them – and some little toys shaped like Angry Birds.  Snorts – I think dad is going to confiscate them.  Houdini tries to help daddy play his game and loves the swooshing sound of the birds.

The rock clan – we can’t forget them now can we – they got a basket with Rock Candy 🙂  Benedict, Manny, Virginia, Princess Coralena, Rockelle, Bashful and some others 🙂 you haven’t heard about … yet.  Coming soon don’t worry my friends.  Mom’s hands are just a tad bit full right now.  Don’t give up on her.

And Dad loves his Angry Birds games so this year mom had him a cake made with Angry Birds on it – sweet!  It is fabulous and gorgeous!  I would share a pic but once mom sliced it, it looked like that red bird bled out – snorts.

And me?  You asked what did the Easter Bunny bring me?  ALL kinds of goodies.

I got a yearly pot full of my special treats! I noticed last week that my big bucket was MIA (missing in action) here at the Hotel Thompson.  That Easter Bunny is sneaky.  He must have come in last week and took my bucket to fill up with all of these goodies.  Look in that bucket –

  • Animal crackers – yes the convenient size – snort.
  • Yellow squash and eggplant.   I love it chopped up and raw.
  • Carrots – look at the size of those master pieces!
  • Oranges and apples.
  • And my training raisins were in the bottom of the bucket.  I only get raisins when mom is teaching me new tricks.  I guess she’s up to training again.

YUMMY – this pig struck the gold mine!   I think personally the Easter Bunny likes me the best, don’t you?  But I won’t tell anyone if you don’t.

Everyone is having a blast on this special day.  I hope you and yours also have a spectacular Easter my friends!

Bacon and friends at the Hotel Thompson 🙂

Collect Rocks Day

 

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

 .

Today, September 16th is Collect Rocks Day!  This day is right up Bacon’s alley.  You know because Bacon collects rocks.  Not just any rocks but pet rocks.

Collect Rocks Day is a day to enjoy your pet rocks.  Pet rocks are not just stones that sit there all day.  They are individuals.  They are pets.  They have wonderful attitudes. And might I add – they are PROS at Hide and Go Seek.  One time, Bashful hid in the fish tank and it took us almost three days to find him – that was fun!  So you see, they also have a sense of humor.

It doesn’t matter what they look like.  It doesn’t matter what economical background they come from.  All that matters is the love and fun that is had with your rocks.  Sounds like humans should take note of this huh?

So from all of the rock clan here at the Hotel Thompson (Bashful, Manny, Princess Coralena, Virginia, Benedict Cumberock, Koishi, Rockelle and Speedy Rock) Happy Collect Rocks Day!

Guess Who Came Home?!

IMG_0597

 Jumping all around and squealing.  Guess who came home yesterday. Go ahead – guess.  Can you guess?  Do you know?  Do you want a hint?  Go ahead guess.  BASHFUL my international rolling stone.  He’s been spending time with my buddy Speedy in the United Kingdom the past couple of months.  He has told all of us some awesome stories of adventures he had with Speedy.  They danced and boogied to the radio.  Played in the garden together.  Met some ponies and some girls ❤  And of course some things that happened in the United Kingdom – stays in the United Kingdom – snorts.

The mailman delivered a box to the steps of the Hotel Thompson and once we opened it, we found a booty of goodies.  Bashful dressed like a pirate.  Pirate coins, notebooks and a sleeping bag!  Can you believe the goodies?!

IMG_0595.JPGAnd you know what?  Bashful came home with a friend – cheers, screams and snorts.  May we present to you Speedy Rock to the left.  Awesome – spectacular – fun – amazing.  Look at the resemblance to Speedy – all the way to the ears to the bushy tail.  OMP (oh my pig!)  We were snorting with delight here.

And the gals – Princess Coralena, Virginia, Rockelle and Koishi were falling all over him and his accent… or was it his eye patch?  I think they are all in ❤ and hey – what’s there not to be in love with, right?

Thanks Speedy for showing my tyke a most excellent adventure.  And I guess that brings up the next question.  Just where in the world will Bashful show up next?  And to those that have signed up on the list to host Bashful, don’t give up.  We are slowly working down the list.  It might take a while, but it will get to you.

7 Weeks of Weird

Today my new friend here is highlighting 7 weeks of weird in “Weirdest things you collect”.

This is a really easy week.  It really is.  I think most of my friends here know that I collect a really weird item.  What?  You don’t know?  Sure you do.  I collect pet rocks. 🙂   You think that’s weird enough?

You know that it all started with my first pet rock Bashful.  He was a gift.  He’s my little international rolling stone and travels around the world visiting my friends and having fun. He looks so innocent and has an innocent name but don’t let that fool you.  He’s quite the ladies rock – snorts.  Every time he goes somewhere, he always brings home a friend.

His friends include Princess Coralena from Hawaii, Manny from France, Rockelle from Australia, Virginia from Virginia,  Benedict Cumberock from the United Kingdom and Koishi from Japan.

And He’s Off Again

We had a wonderful LONG weekend here with the rock clan.  We all got together and had a Bon Voyage party for Bashful.  He is now off again to parts unknown.  Where or where will that little rock of mine roll up to next?

Could it be here?  Could it be there?  In the states or across the pond?  On the other side of the world?  I’m not telling.  Nope.  I’m keeping a secret.  There’s nothing you can do to make me talk.  Nope.  Not at all.  My piggy lips are sealed.  Only two other people know.. well maybe three.  Mommy, the nice Mr. Postman guy and the host family.  And none of them are talking either.  Anyone want to take a guess?

Soon…. we shall know hopefully soon.

.

.

And you should have seen all of the girls here crying over Bashful.  Princess Coralena, Virginia, Rockelle and Koishi.  I’m not sure which one was crying the most!

.

.

UPDATE:  Mom always sends off Bashful at the post office closest to her worky place.  I want you to know that the staff there now truly knows that mom is certifiable and should be wearing a white jacket that buttons in the back.  They have been inquiring about the boxes that she sends off.  She told them today what was actually in the boxes.  You should have seen the looks on their faces – PRICELESS.  I mean truly PRICELESS.  The response of, “You have a what that you do what with?” and “Girl, you need a hobby.”

These were said in fun and mom just laughed it all off smiling.  Then she threw in the icing on the cake.  She told them that the rock wasn’t actually hers, it was mine… a pig.  Oh dear piggy heavens.  Daddy laughed and said he was surprised that they didn’t pick up the phone right there and then.

But it’s not weird.  My pet rock travels.  He’s good at it and has a lot of great and giving friends that like to host him and show him a good time.  Shakes piggy head.  I don’t see anything wrong with that.  Do you?  Snorts.

Bashful is Home!

Oh piggy heavens!  Bashful has made it home from Auntie Sharon in Australia!   He came in the mail and of course daddy would not let me open it until mom got home last night from the worky place.  It was a funny thing too.  It sounded like there was a party going on in that box.  In fact, this song was playing.

20140515-085701.jpg

Snorticles.  It was constant.  I kind of got used to it and was dancing and singing that catchy little tune myself.  When mom came home, I FINALLY got to open the box.  Bashful brought home a friend.  May I present to you Koishi.  Koishi in Japanese means pebble.  Here is the Japanese writing for it:  小石   Cool huh?  That Koishi is a looker – so pretty and beautiful in her kimono.  I know that Princess Coralena, Virginia and Rockelle were all in awe over her outfit.  There is a slight language barrier but I think we can get the meaning to a lot of things she is trying to say.  

The first thing she wrote was 私は恥ずかしがり屋の愛 which in Japanese language is Watashi wa hazukashi gari-ya no ai.  Do you know what that means?  I got out my piggy translator and looked it up.  It says, “I love Bashful”.  Isn’t that the sweetest?  That rock of mine certainly has the “IT” factor in picking up the ladies doesn’t he?  

All of the rock clans and I stayed up late last night talking and catching up on everything that has been going on here at the Hotel Thompson.  It was a late night into the morning but that was okay.  It was a stormy night here last night with thunder and lightening.  For a while, we lost power and everything was dark.  That’s okay though.  Koishi settled right beside Bashful and finally fell asleep in his arms.  It was adorable!

20140515-085708.jpg

 You gotta see some of the other items that came home with Bashful from Auntie Sharon.  First up, this adorable cute little keychain.  OMP (Oh m pig!)  Mommy fell IN LOVE with this keychain.  That soup in the bowl looks so real – like it’s going to pour out at any minute.  Isn’t is to die for?!

It’s so cute.  We had to put it on display in our curio cabinet.  We don’t want anything to happen to it!

20140515-085718.jpgThen, there was this headband.  Daddy had a FIT about it.  He immediately had to take it out of the package and put it on.  Snorts – it was too funny.  I’ll have to post about that situation next week.  When I tell you that daddy of mine is two scoops past crazy – I am not joking.  But I do have to give him this.  The man has skills.  Skills of stupidity but skills.  It’s okay though.  Mommy took the headband and wrapped it back up to put in our showcase.  We don’t want anything to happen to it.

20140515-085731.jpg

Also in the box were these cute little girls – I think they were made of wood.  Help me out Auntie Sharon if I’m wrong.  They were adorable!  I think perhaps they may look innocent and sweet but I think they were the ones starting up the party in the box with I Think I’m Turning Japanese.  Really, snorts, I do.

Of course, mommy put them in the curio cabinet as well.  They are too adorable and look so cute in the cabinet with the keychain and headband.

20140515-085725.jpg  And do you know what else Auntie Sharon found and sent to mom?  Minnie Mouse boxes – OMP (oh my pig).  I haven’t heard mom squeal that loud in a long time.  These two little boxes sit inside of each other.  They are precious!  Mommy was overly thrilled with them.

We can’t thank you enough Auntie Sharon for hosting Bashful and the wonderful gifts.  I really hope that Koishi will be happy here at the Hotel Thompson.   I hope I translated this correctly:

あなたに感謝し、私はあなたを愛して
Anata ni kansha shi, watashi wa anata o aishite

Happy Mothers Day Moms!!

Today is a wonderful and glorious day – Mother’s Day.  I appreciate my birth mother, Bertha, and I love her very much.  If it wasn’t for her and my dad Champ, I wouldn’t be here, right?  Snorts.  So I’m very thankful for my mother – Happy Mother’s Day mommy Bertha.

 I’m also very thankful for my adopted mother.  Mommy Bertha gave me life but my adopted mom gave me a home full of love.

I’m also very thankful for my nana.  If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have my adopted mommy.  See how these things work?

I am so excited to share this date with you my friends and wish you all a wonderful Mother’s Day filled with love and snuggable hugs.

Trivia Knowledge – did you know that the first Mother’s Day was May 10, 1908 in Philadelphia.  That’s good trivia knowledge that I learned from Journalist Rocky the Squirrel.

So from me, Hemi, Mouse Girl, the ‘rock’ clan (Bashful, Manny, Rockelle, Princess Coralena, Benedict Cumberock, Virginia) and Journalist Rocky the Squirrel –

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY – WE LOVE YOU!!

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER my dear friends

((HOGS AND KISSES)) it’s a wonderful and joyous day!

I love Easter.  I love everything about it.  I love the fun.  I love the excitement.  I love the actual meaning of Easter.  I love it all!

Mom makes is so special for all of us.  Mom gave the purr things their little basket.  She was going to take a picture of it but too late – they got to it.  There was little pieces of grass everywhere from their straw basket.  They got cat treats, a bag of Iams – their favorite and a couple of play mice.  They were happy – more so for the basket and grass at first – snorts.  Silly purr things.

Dad loves his Angry Birds games so this year mom tried to decorate the eggs in their colors.  Didn’t turn out as good as last year but dad absolutely loved them.  Me, of course I favored the piggy one.  What more I favored was what was inside of the egg. Snorts – I do love my food.

And me?  You asked what did the Easter Bunny bring me?  ALL kinds of goodies.

20130312-101826.jpg

I got a yearly pot full of my special treats! I noticed last week that my big bucket was MIA (missing in action) here at the Hotel Thompson.  That Easter Bunny is sneaky.  He must have come in last week and took my bucket to fill up with all of these goodies.

Look in that bucket –

  • Animal crackers – yes the convenient size – snort.
  • Yellow squash and eggplant.   I love it chopped up and raw.
  • Carrots – look at the size of those master pieces!
  • Oranges and apples.
  • And my training raisins were in the bottom of the bucket.  I only get raisins when mom is teaching me new tricks.  I guess she’s up to training again.

YUMMY – this pig struck the gold mine!   I think personally the Easter Bunny likes me the best, don’t you?  But I won’t tell anyone if you don’t.

And we can’t forget about  rock clan – Benedict, Manny, Virginia, Princess Coralena and Rockelle.  Bashful is with his host family so I’m sure he won’t get left out.  But here at the Hotel Thompson, the Easter Bunny brought the rock clan what else but Rock Candy!

Everyone is having a blast on this special day.  I hope you and yours also have a spectacular Easter my friends!

Bacon and friends at the Hotel Thompson 🙂

The Valentines Date to Remember

 You voted for it and the two winners were Benedict and Rockelle for their hot date on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014.  The day started off with a lot of primping, planning and excitement.  Manny and Bashful helped Benedict get ready for the day as Princess Coralena and Virginia helped Rockelle.

20140216-172640.jpg

The day started off with the exchanging of some gifts.  In the picture to the left, Benedict gave Rockelle a special box of chocolates telling her how he feels.  Notice, “You Caught My Eye” was written on the box.  Nice touch Benedict!  In the picture to the right, Rockelle gave Benedict a red hot love ducky because she went quackers for him.  Nice touch Rockelle.

20140216-172621.jpg

.

Then, it was time for dinner.  Mom and dad researched a lot of restaurants that would be unique for the happy couple.  Something that touched both of them in

a different way.  Something that made them think of their homelands.  You know since Rockelle is from Australia and Benedict is

from the United Kingdom.  A place maybe they didn’t have from their birth places but something  that was unique to the United States.  Then the light bulbs went off in their heads and they knew of the perfect place.  Reservations were made and mom/dad (AKA the chauffers for the night) then bundled the two up for their romantic dinner.

 

20140216-182140.jpg

Yep, that’s right.  They went to Hooters on Tara Boulevard.  The night started off with some shots in the picture to the left.  After a few shots, Benedict and Rockelle loosed up a bit and started talking about their feelings for each other.  In the picture to the right, you can tell that there was a magnetic pull to each other.  Perhaps love was starting to erupt?

.

20140216-182157.jpg

. They did a few shots to loosen up – you know liquid courage.  Hooters is a great place that plays a variety of different music.  Once they were loosed up, they were rocking to the music.  Benedict asked Rockelle to dance.  They did the electric rock slide and the pebble shuffle… you know instead of the two step or twerking.

.

.

20140216-182208.jpg

.

After the shots and all of that dancing, they thought they might need to get something on their stomachs.  You know drinking without eating makes one light headed and who knows what would roll around then?  They started with some buffalo shrimp.  Who needs utensils?  It is finger food so they both dived into the plate.  Benedict was such a gentleman and actually wiped some sauce off of Rockelle’s face.  Of course the proper way would have been by using a napkin instead of using his tongue.  But she seemed to like it.

.

Both liked fish so they decided to order the big fried fish sandwich.  It was enough to share.  And there is a reason that it’s called the big fish sandwich.  Do you see how big that fish is? This was certainly one that didn’t get away and was a keeper.   Benedict started on one side and Rockelle started on the other side.  They met in the middle.  And the little round things are tater tots. It’s often been said that Benedict looks like a potato so it isn’t a shocker that he absolutely loved the tots.  20140216-182219.jpg

20140216-182230.jpg And Hooters, they are known for their wings.  Yeah, that’s right. They’re known for their delicious wings.  They got some of those to try as well.  What’s a great night out if you don’t have lots of food.  And they were there for several hours getting to know each other.  The wings were fried, breaded and medium – mmmm – Rockelle loved them.

And, of course there is one more thing you have to do when you are at Hooters.  I’m not sure if you are familiar with this restaurant.  The staff is wonderful, gracious and very out going.  They were wonderful to Benedict and Rockelle on their special date night.  And since this was their first time at the restaurant, they wanted to give them a memory in a picture.  So, they all decided to have their picture taken with the special couple.

 20140216-182240.jpg

Notice the two in the picture.  And the girls were gorgeous.  But after the photograph, Benedict assured Rockelle that she was the beauty and he only had eyes for her.  aaww – way to go Benedict!  20140216-182249.jpg

 After they left Hooters, they didn’t want the date to end.  They decided they needed something sweet.  And again, Benedict came through.  While they were in the back seat, mom/dad overheard Benedict tell Rockelle there was nothing they could get that would be sweeter than her.  I think by this point they were holding hands as well.

They decided they wanted ice cream so mom/dad (AKA Chauffers) took them to Baskin Robins where they enjoyed a scoop of snickers ice cream.  By this time, they wanted to sit at a separate table from mom/dad so they could talk by themselves.  Mom and dad heard a lot of giggles so it seems they were getting along great.

20140216-182257.jpgDate night must have went really well because the next morning, Benedict and Rockelle were seen in the kitchen sharing a heart shaped doughnut.  This special date night might be the start of something fabulous – maybe even a great relationship like Bogey and McCall.  One never knows.

So friends, pat yourselves on the backs for a wonderful twosome.

I would like extend a special thank you to Mike Fiely the manager at Hooters and his wonderful staff located at 6785 Tara Boulevard, Jonesboro.  Ya’ll really helped this little piggy out in making this special date night one to remember for my pet rocks.  I would say, “You Rock!”
